Please EMAIL ONLY. Do not call.

Adorable beach cottage which allows pets and is made for families, comfortable and casual. Fully stocked kitchen and perfect lounge around living room. One bedroom for kids with two twin beds, one guest bedroom with queen bed, one master with king bed, and master bathroom with claw foot tub and separate shower. Deck off master. Queen size sleeper sofa in living room. Second bathroom also has shower. Can sleep 9 people.

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!

We stayed here for 4 nights with my 7 and 5 year old. We all loved it, kids had a blast. Great location, steps from the beach. Great dining close by.

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!

LOCATION! AFFORDABLE! CLEAN! EXCELLENT FOR KIDS!

  • 5 of 5

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!!!

Great Beach House by the water

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at the house for two years and it's the perfect place to enjoy the Ventura beach and Marina Park. Close to the beach on a quiet street. Plenty of room for the family with a big backyard. We'll be back!

Great location and wonderful customer service

  • 4 of 5

This beach rental is quaint and comfortable. It is not glamorous but the location and back yard make for a perfect beach getaway. The owner and property manager are very attentive and go the extra mile to make the stay great. If you are bringing your pets, you couldn't ask for more. The backyard is spacious. The beach is steps away and dog friendly. My pups and I couldn't have asked for a better way to relax.

CASUAL BEACH COTTAGE

  • 4 of 5

We have rented this friendly beach cottage twice - each time for about 2 months. It has everything you need for a casual vacation at the beach. It's only about a half block from the water and a short walk to Marina Park where our two dogs loved to run in the grass. Amenities are basic but adequate and the owner and house manager are attentive and quick to address any issues or problems. If you want fancy this might not be the place for you, but if you want an unpretentious California beach vacation I recommend it. We had a good time on both stays and hope to return again in the future.
