Ventura house description

AUGUST 15-22 JUST OPENED if interested.

Week minimum in summer. Outside of summer, shorter stays (2 days) are possible.

Please review our guest feedback (Traveler Reviews 70+) at the top of the page. More pics available upon request.

Entire house remodel just completed at end of January 2014 that involved inside and outside work. New kitchen, new appliances, new bathrooms, new bedrooms, wood floor, new furnishings, new outside, new garden, etc.

If you rent this house, you are renting from an owner who lived in it since the early 1970's (my parents built the house). 2014 will be our 8th year renting the house as a full time vacation rental. Personalized service from booking, to arrival and on through your stay. We also live in Ventura.

1045 WATERBURY LANE, VENTURA, CALIFORNIA BEACH FRONT HOUSE - ON THE SAND!!! Waterbury Lane has one of the widest stretches of beaches in all of Pierpont.....great for the kiddies to run and play on. This house is located in the wonderful Pierpont beach community in the City of Ventura (60 miles north of Los Angeles/45 miles south of Santa Barbara).

A year round weekly rental (or monthly outside of summer), our beach house easily sleeps 10 and is a perfect getaway for families, or a group of friends and it would also make a great business retreat (wireless internet, big dining room table).

As a beach front home sitting on a prime beach, you'll enjoy the comfort and amazing views of the ocean and offshore Channel Islands which provide a background for spectacular sunsets and if you are lucky, jumping dolphin right outside the surf line. Relax on the deck or back patio (with gas fire pit), or curl on the couch along side our gas fireplace. With all the creature comforts of an exclusive resort, you may never want to leave our getaway on the beach.

Two full stories above the ground level garage, this home has three bedrooms and three baths, a family room, living room with attached casual and formal dining room, reading/recreational nook, full kitchen in approximately 2400 square feet of living in a very open floor plan with lots of windows to show off the ocean/island view.

SLEEPING ACCOMMODATIONS (bedrooms on top floor)

Private balcony with NANA doors that are only accessed from master bedroom with panoramic ocean/island views. Master has Direct TV satellite cable with a DVD/VCR playerand a 32 inch LCD TV. Two sitting chairs.

Bedroom Two - This room features two twin beds in a remodeled room. Walk in closet and attached bathroom (just redone) with step in shower (could be used a tub for a small tub). Flat screen TV with Direct TV Satellite cable with a DVD/VCR player.

Bedroom Three - This room features one california king bed and a walk in closet. Ample room for rollaway bed or for a crib. Attached bathroom shared with bedroom two. Flat screen TV with Direct TV Satellite cable with a DVD/VCR player.
