Adorable beach cottage which allows pets and is made for families, comfortable and casual. Fully stocked kitchen and perfect lounge around living room.

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 Ventura

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!

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.

Very great price for a week long beach vacation rental! Comfortable house just steps to the sand. Quiet, private street and wide open beach; not crowded at all! We are from San Diego and found this area of Ventura absolutely lovely!

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.

Great place for our family to start our holiday!

  • 4 of 5

A lovely clean house with lots of space for our family of 5, and had everything you might need. We didn't cook though the fridge was useful for drinks and storing picnic food. Amazing to walk a few steps to the beach! We really enjoyed our stay and loved Ventura, especially the harbour. A few glasses for water would be nice (the plastic ones are getting a bit old!) and we bought some washing up soap for the house. Thank you for a great stay!

My parents flew in from Michigan and wanted to take my family to a beach house. This house was absolutely perfect! The house is nestled on a very quiet street and was exactly as the owner advertised. There were 3 single beds in the first room that were perfect for my 3 kids, a queen bed in the 2nd room and a king in the master bedroom. The house was very clean and the side yard/back yard was very spacious. My kids brought their bikes, ripsticks and scooters. There was plenty of room to store them on the side yard and the street was very safe for my kids to ride and play.

The beach at the end of the street (walking distance) was clean and the waves were awesome! My kids love to play Pokeman Go, but due to safety, I am very selective about where I let them do it. The park is walking distance from the house and my kids had a great time chasing Pokemans from the house, along the beach and over to the park.

Besides boogie boarding and swimming at the beach at the end of the street, we also spent a day surfing at Mondos Beach. Mondos Beach is only 10 minutes from the beach house and is an amazing place for kids to learn to surf. The beach is very shallow a long way out and the waves break perfectly for beginning surfers.

Instead of renting 2 hotel rooms to accommodate us, we rented this house. The house was more affordable than 2 hotel rooms and we cooked all of our meals in the kitchen. The owner provided exceptional service. Everything was exactly as advertised and we will definitely be renting this house again next summer. I highly recommend this beach house!!!

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.

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.

  • 100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
