Yard is extremely large and bigger than any other rentals (lot and a half) . Terraced area with lounge chairs and other seating so you can sip margaritas while the kids are safe right next to you. Eating area, sandy area (the beach in your backyard) and Weber Spirit gas barbecue. It's the perfect place to kick back and enjoy being outside. 4 Outdoor Parking spots dedicated to home.

Being able to relax in a large back yard after a day on the beach or visiting the many sites in the area is invaluable. When the wind is blowing at the beach, the yard is often warmer and extremely relaxing.

Out the door, turn left, and there is the a glorious beach a 1/2 block away. It is large, clean and beautiful. It's a few blocks away from the public beach so it is less crowded and very clean.

Two blocks away is the harbor park which has the perfect kids' park for ages two to ten years and a grassy area for other sports. The harbor is a five minute drive and you can go for a boat ride or rent boats. There are incredible restaurants and a kid's arcade.

The town is walkable for local fresh produce and fish. The main town is a five minute drive and boasts world class restaurants, antiquing and movie theatres. A water park is a ten minute drive that your kids will love. Magic Mountain, Santa Barbara and Ojai are a half hour away.

Address is 1350 Camden Lane, Ventura. Look it up on Mapquest to see how close we are to the beach! Email me only.

About The Owner

We are a family of 4. We live in Los Angeles and come whenever our house is not rented to Ventura. My husband is a writer and I am a PhD candidate at UCLA in psychology. Kids are 12 and 15 years old now. This picture is of my husband, daughter and son on the beach next to our house a few years ago.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2005

Why The Owner chose Pierpont Bay

This area is so beautiful, clean, relaxed, with so much to do. Our street is quiet and very close to Marina Park which is great for children. Our neighbors are all incredibly nice and people in Ventura are just friendly and kind. We are so close to Seaward which is a great area for fresh produce, free fish, fun restaurants, bike rentals and margarita mix to make yourself or restaurants to drink in!

What makes this cottage unique

Our property has an exceptionally large backyard which is really one of the reasons we bought it. Even though the house is small, the yard is huge so many people can stay there and not feel cramped. The outside area is great for relaxing, eating, kids playing and barbecuing. You can use the ladder and get to the roof where there is a nice view of the oceean too. The house itself is perfect with bedrooms that are comfortable and two bathrooms each with showers and one with tub.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just returned from our stay at your very cute place in

Ventura-the weather was great and the house was very

comfortable. We especially enjoyed having our late morning

coffee in the great backyard. We had grandchildren and

great-grandchildren from Los Angeles come up for a Birthday

Party on Saturday and the yard worked so well for that.

Thank you!

Relaxing beach house on a quiet street

  • 5 of 5

The whole family had a wonderful time, frequent walks to see sunrises and sunsets. Very convenient to everything by short walks or short drives. The house had all we would need for a week long visit with easy trips for groceries.

Amazing location!

  • 3 of 5

The home is locate in a very nice safe quiet neighborhood 2 minutes walk from a stunning beach. We were by the water most of our free time. There is a great collection of local restaurants 2 minutes away on seaward avenue. The house itself is well laid out. Big family room next to the kitchen which was easy to cook in as a group. The master bedroom with on suite bath is lovely with a little private patio out the sliding door. There is also a nice side yard with outdoor shower which the kids loved.

My honest feeling is that the house could use a little updating. The lighting plan is older, some of the furniture felt dated.

For overall location it hard to beat!!!

Casual Cottage by the Sand

  • 3 of 5

This beach house was perfect for our four young grandchildren who stayed with us. The location very close to Marina Park and Harbor Village was ideal. We rode the train, rented pedal bikes, rented a harbor boat and found great ice cream and clam chowder. We loved being able to walk just a few houses down to the sand on this quiet lane. The large fenced yard was a safe place for the children to play when we weren't at the beach. The cottage was clean but did not have a very organized kitchen. We felt it was too much trouble pulling out the portable dishwasher so we used paper and plastic or washed by hand. I would advise anyone who comes to bring their own chairs, bikes, and beach toys as we did.

Enjoyed the room and location

  • 4 of 5

Everything was great had one problem. The guess bed room bed fell down when my son set down on it. Luckily my daughter's boyfriend was able to fix it with a trip to Home Depot.

$500 deposit to secure the rental is absolutely non-refundable. The monthly rate also includes utilities.

Holiday rates are normally at high season rates. Email me to ask.

If renting for over a month $250 monthly utility fee charged. Covers gas, garbage, electricity, cable, water, internet, phone, gardening, etc.

CANCELLATION POLICY: If you cancel for any reason and at any time, your deposit to hold the reservation becomes non-refundable under all circumstances even if home is rented out (this is to cover our admin and management costs). Beyond this deposit, any rent paid will be refunded ONLY if the property is re-rented for the time that you had reserved. Changing of dates is still considered a cancellation. Please do your best to inform us as soon as you know if you can not keep a reservation so that we can try to re-rent it and get your rent back if you have already paid rent. If we are unable to rent the house and you have paid the full amount, only the security deposit and tax will be refunded.

Due to logistical considerations, all homes are rented without prior viewing or inspection. Everything is done to give good indication of rental. Please make sure to ask as many questions as possible and examine pictures in order to make sure you are satisfied. We cannot refund rent due to dissatisfaction with house or its amenities. This is a beach home, not a hotel, and we hope you will enjoy it; however, it is important to note that the house is meant to be a kick back beach house appropriate for families and pets. Given the constant turnaround in rentals, we clearly have happy renters, with the associated wear and tear.

  • 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
  • 100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
  • Service Fee fully refunded on cancellations that qualify for 100% refund.
