Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Welcome to our classic new one story cape cod style Beach House located on historic Faria Beach, minutes away from the historic cities of Santa Barbara, Montecito and Ojai, and also conveniently close to Ventura and Carpenteria's classic boardwalk and beach Villages.

The Beach house, upon entry, opens up to an expansive 180 degree view of the ocean coast and Channel Islands. We are unique in that we have a brand new home which is immaculately clean and offers all the modern conveniences such as a gas fireplace in the living room, complimentary wireless internet, a 40' HDTV and CD player, sparkling new kitchen with granite countertops and custom cabinets and central heating which make for a very comfortable beach experience.

Our kitchen has an open floor plan, with floor to ceiling windows that look out to the deck and ocean. It is fully equipped and includes all appliances: stove, oven, refrigerator, microwave and dishwasher, along with all paper and cleaning products and washer and dryer.

The Beach House has three bedrooms. The private master has a king bed with sliding glass doors that take you out to an expansive deck and private hot tub. The second bedroom has two twin beds and the third bedroom has a queen bed with half bath and walk out glass doors to the deck and outside shower.

The large ocean front deck accommodates an outdoor shower, BBQ, hot tub and of course, plenty of space to lay out under the California sun with chaise lounges and table and chairs.

Easy access to the beach/sand is provided by a private stairway from the seawall.

Please note, as per the pictures on the website, that there is not a fence between the Beach House and the seawall. The drop off from the top of the seawall to the sand can range from 10 to 15 feet, depending on the tide.

Unlike some of the local beach houses, our Beach House sits on the white sandy beach, which is accessible at all times, except high tide. In addition, 150 yards down is a public beach (Mondo's), that is white and sandy at all times.

In the fall the sunsets and cloud formations are spectacular, producing one of a kind memories. This is a very rare, new and immaculately clean beach house and A NON-SMOKING PROPERTY! One of the best, highest quality, cleanest beach front home on Faria Beach!

PLEASE NOTE THAT WE HAVE A 5 PERSON MAXIMUM WITHOUT EXCEPTION. Therefore, there can be no gatherings, events, parties, dinners, lunches, BBQ's etc.... beyond this 5 person maximum, at any time during our guests stay. This is strictly enforced in our lease, with a clause whereby the Tenant agrees to the number in the party at the property, at any time during the stay, and if the number exceeds the amount agreed to in the lease, the Tenant acknowledges and agrees that the ENTIRE DAMAGE SECURITY DEPOSIT is subject to loss. In addition, the Tenant agrees that the owner, or owners agent, has the right to come onto the property and shut the event down.

We are sorry to have to be so forceful about this matter, but unfortunately some of our guests have ignored this clause in the lease and have had 'gatherings' beyond the agreed upon number in the lease, causing damage to the property and being a nuisance to our neighbours. If this is your situation, this beach house is not for you.

Our Beach House is a high quality beach house that we do our best to maintain in good condition. One way to do so is to make manage the number in the party and prohibit 'events' at the property. We are also respectful to our neighbors who do not care for events at the home and will let us know immediately if one occurs.

Our Beach House is a unique and rare property intended for those who can appreciate it and appreciate the beach. It is not a house intended for use the use of events or gatherings or groups larger than 5.

We absolutely loved this place!

  • 5 of 5

Our trip was considered a "babymoon" but we brought our 2.5 year old daughter with us too! It was the perfect spot to be for a week to get away! We used to live in Ventura and wanted to come back near the area, but a property on the beach. The place definitely surpassed our expectations! The house interior was done really well- all new updates and the deck alone was a huge selling point! Our daughter especially loved the jacuzzi! Tracy was available and accommodating if we needed anything. We can't say enough good things about the place and will definitely be back!

Well kept, clean, nicely stocked oceanside cottage with a great deck with hottub.

  • 4 of 5

Spent our first anniversary there and enjoyed our stay. For a couple, the place worked well.The cottage is in excellent condition, very clean and well stocked. It is a wet beach so there is little dry sand to use. Tracy was great to work with and is very responsive to your concerns. I'd give the place 5 stars but the beach only 3 stars.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your complimentary review of my property! Evidently you visited during a time when the tides were 'higher'...so the surf was breaking closer to the seawall. It's important to note that tides change daily, weekly, seasonally, and are affected by the weather, as well. For this reason, I would suggest renters look at a tide chart prior to booking to insure a thoroughly enjoyably stay. There are many months of the year when the waves break very far out leaving much 'dry sand' to enjoy. The Faria Beach community is a lovely, family friendly cove and is well known by locals as being a great place to surf in addition to having a very safe and walk-able beach .

We had the most amazing time during our stay and the view was absolutely stunning. We actually saw shooting stars one night while relaxing in the hot tub on the deck! We would not hesitate to stay there again...Thankyou so much!

Great Host, Beautiful Place

  • 5 of 5

This is the place you must stay! We just returned from a week stay at this beautiful house. Tracy, thank you for making our stay so memorable. Whatever was needed was there. Everything was spotless. We loved everything--the house location on Faria Beach--the decor of the house, fireplace, the beach steps away, the spacious patio. I could go on and on...! The view and sunsets were breathtaking. We hope to return soon. We would not consider staying anyplace else.

Excellent Family Memories

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have been staying at this wonderful Faria beach house for 6 years. We have built wondrous memories out of annual traditions from marathon Monopoly competition to our favorite beach meals and snacks. Our first stay was in September and we experienced a wide variety of weather that made the stay such a unique experience. Since then, we have stayed in October which allows for smooth waters, beautifully comfortable temperatures and amazing sunsets. The accommodations are first class. From the champagne welcome and luxurious linens to the relaxing deck and easy access to the ocean. The expansive view is in every room. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking supplies and makes "being in the kitchen" a joy since the Pacific Ocean is the backdrop. If cooking family meals is not what you want to do on vacation, the wide variety of local eateries are a few minutes away yet, allow you to come back to a retreat that feels miles from hectic life. The walks to the low tide pools are enjoyable for all ages. The surfing activity down the beach is a relaxing entertainment. The spa is comfortably private from the neighboring homes yet the openness of the deck allows for special introductions with other vacationers that have provided some of our special memories. I would highly recommend this property for a cozy get-a-way for two to a fun filled family vacation that will build lasting vacation memories.

Spectacular setting!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a sisters get-away and loved every minute of it. The house looked just like it was advertised (albeit on the small side) and the deck is simply incredible (most of your time will be spent outdoors).

We couldn't have asked for better weather - sunny and warm/hot every day.

Lots of great restaurants/shopping close by. Just an hour or so away from amazing wineries in Santa Ynez. Solvang is a great day trip. I would suggest going up the San Marcos pass but come back on the 101 to make the complete loop.

Favorite restaurants were Lure Fish House (Ventura) and the Padero Beach Grill (Carpenteria). Great views from the outdoor patio at the Biltmore 4 Seasons hotel in Montecito.

The beach was great for afternoon walks when the tide was out. It was fantastic when the tide was in during the evening hours as the water came up onto the deck and the noise was wonderful from the waves.

Although the train goes by several times a day, it was quick and you rarely heard it. Would have liked 2 full bathrooms but we made it work with 4 sisters.

Highly recommend!

Great freeway access halfway between Ventura and Santa Barbara. Less than an hour drive from the Burbank airport.
