Relax on the beach and be lulled by the sound of the surf. This family-friendly two-story home is located on the beautiful Gold Coast of California between the charming town of Ventura and breath-taking Santa Barbara and close to the artist community of Ojai. Theater, shopping, restaurants and more are all 10-20 minutes away. We only rent through VRBO. If you see this listing on Craigslist do not reply!
Please note: Due to the quiet nature of the area, and out of respect for our neighbors, this is not a house for parties or for entertaining large groups.
We are located on one of the area's best beginner surf spots and a wonderful family beach and minutes away from some of the best surf spots in the country.
The master bedroom has floor to ceiling windows looking out to an endless Pacific Ocean view. The other bedrooms look over the coastal foothills. Enjoy meals and lounging on the large deck, surfing and kayaking right in front of the house or tennis on the private courts right down the road.
Enjoy wifi, flat screen, cable, netflix and ipod/iphone docking station.
Here are some favorite activities:
you can fish right off the deck when the tide is up, or in the surf. Fish and Game does patrol, so I recommend a license. Here is more information on what you can catch here:
We are less than 10 minutes from Downtown Ventura where you will find a variety of shops and restaurants on Main St., as well as the Museum of Ventura County and the San Buenaventura Mission.

There's a lovely hike above the Courthouse to get a birdseye view of Ventura, or you can drive up to the cross at Grant Park.
You can take Hwy 33 into Ojai for more great shopping and restaurants, and many art galleries. And drive the beautiful loop of Hwy 150 which will drop you into Santa Paula for more museums like the Oil Museum, Art Museum, Agriculture Museum and good restaurants like Rabalais, Mupu Grill, and Garmens. (Check museums for operating hours)
And of course Santa Barbara is 30 minutes north for the beautiful mission, Museum of Natural History, botanical gardens, shopping on State St. and one of Julia Child's favorite restaurants: La Super-rica: http://www.yelp.com/biz/la-super-rica-taqueria-santa-barbara
