Ventura is a bit of paradise. it is a stunning beach town that sits on the central coast. Our home is 1 block off the beach and best of all our beach is uncrowed and very private. We have a 18 mile bike path that will take you along the water front and up to Ojai. We have world class wineries less than an hour away. Our marina ( 2 miles away) boasts restaurants, fishing excursions, kayak adventures that will take you to the Channel Islands just 11 miles off the coast. Our downtown , a five minute car or taxi ride,has everything you could want...restaurants, theaters, boutiques, bars and nightlife. We host a Beers and Blues Festival in May that is awesome. We have walking tours for the 'Foodies' and Wine tours for the wine enthuasists. Our village ( known by the locals as Seward Village) is less than a 5 minute walk from our house. There you will find a great pub and grille, an italian bistro with awesome food and drink, Dukes a local favorite that serves up burgers, beer and lots of fish , and a sushi spot. For the coffee and sweet tooth people ther is a coffee house with in house made desserts and a frozen yogurt shop. A Starbucks and grocery store is just a block up from the Village.
Year Purchased: 1996
About the owner: We , Tom and Kathleen Koenig, have lived in Venura sinse 1991. We always dreamed of living at the beach and purchased this house in 1996. We rebuilt it 6 years ago. We LOVE Ventura and especially our area of Pierpont. We are close enough to LA so that you can get to all it has to offer in a few short hours yet far enough away to not have to deal with the big city hassels. Tom was an LA City Firefighter for 31 years. Kathleen is a professional artist. We are both semi-retired but keep busy with 5 grown kids and 10 grandkids. We have been married for more than 40 years and still have a GREAT time with eachother. we love the outdoors, traveling and entertaining family and friends. And our home and the area we live in means we have guests often. There is nothing like walking down to the beach in the morning and seeing the islands or dolphins surfing the waves. There is something magical about looking at the ocean and then turning around toward our mountains and seeing snow covering the backcountry. It is a slice of paradise ! We will do everything we can to make your vacation so memorable that you will be wanting to come back again and again.
Why the Owner Chose Ventura: Our property and the town of Ventura are in an ideal location. Again it is close to all of the entertainment options Southern California has to offer but we are nestled in a spot that it unique. Most of the beach communities are really crowded. The beaches, restauraunts etc. are packed with tourists to the point where it can make it hard to relax and enjoy. Not here in Ventura. We have all that the other beach towns have without the huge crowds! For Shoppers, our downtown has great women's boutiques, our mall has all the well known stores ( and it is just 5 miles from us) like Macys, H&M, Forever 21, Express, JC Pennys, Target. Camarillo Outlets is world famous. There are tours that come from around the world specifically to shop there. Getting there is a 15 minute drive. We have 2 Trader Joes and Whole Foods grocery store will be opening in the next few months. We have an amazing Farmers Market every Saturday in the downtown with our local farmers bringing their produce, flowers, cheeses meats and more to market.
The Unique Benefits at this House: We built our home to be comfortable and cozy. We want our guests to feel at home from the moment they walk in. We designed it to be light and open with lots of windows. When we were planning the backyard we wanted complete privacy and we have accomplished that. You could spend your entire visit here never getting in your car because everything you need is within walking distance.
