About the owner: We had a dream to live on the ocean and this home is it! One avid surfer and one avid 'lounger' so this home was just perfect for us. We are Southern transplants living in California and enjoy this home as much as we can. It's our quiet escape and how we recharge. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.
Why the Owner Chose Ventura: It's just over an hour from our home so a very easy drive. It still feels like we're disconnecting enough to allow us to wind down. The location is fantastic since we spend time in Santa Barbara, Carpinteria and Ventura. Faria Beach is one of the most beautiful places and we fell in love with it when we rented our first house for a weekend away.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Our home sits on one of California's best surf breaks. Exceptional for surfing, paddle boarding, kayaking and swimming. The beach area changes during the year and can be beautiful sand or gorgeous rocks with sea anemones ... it is so varied. With views of the Channel Islands we can't beat the sunsets.
