Wonderful Faria Beach Oceanfront Home

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

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.

Some favorite places to eat are:

Beach House Fish: on the pier, great for fish tacos

Lure Fish House: on California St. Great fish, good service,

Grapes and Hops: Good wine selection

Palermo: on Main St., Good coffee and gelato

Taqueria Tapatitlan, great Mexican food

You can rent a bike and cruise the bike path

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:

So much to do so little time! It's quite possible you never leave the chaise lounge :)

About Kay Clark

Our family home has been a rental for over thirty years. Generations of families have been coming back for years.

Kay Clark purchased this house in 1972

Why Kay Clark chose Ventura

The location couldn't be better. Year-round pleasant weather. Los Angeles, art-filled Ojai, the culture and beauty of Santa Barbara and local wine-tasting and world-class surfing all close at hand.

A great relaxing and comfy beachfront home. The perfect place to get away and unwind.

  • 5 of 5

The owner, Kay is a wonderful person, who was available to address any issues that might have come up during our stay. The house is located in a great location, Channel Island views, the soothing surf, and a comfy cottage to hang out in.

Great vacation spot

  • 4 of 5

The view and location are spectacular, the house is spacious, it is clean, supplies are ample, and the beds are very comfortable. The description is very accurate. The owner is easy to work with and very adaptable to unexpected circumstances since we were there during the Thomas fire. A few recommendations for improvement were made in a private email, but we would consider it again in the future.

Owner's Response: The devastating Thomas Fire, which destroyed over 500 homes in our town, burned for two days within 100 feet of our home. During that time, we were intermittently spraying the roof with water, which caused several outdoor bulbs to to need replacement. Heavy winds also broke the umbrella, which we rigged to stay up for this renter. Under these conditions, we were not able to give the house our usual attention-to-detail, although in every way it was clean and well-stocked. This renter was kind enough to give us a very detailed list of everything he found awry. Since his stay, we have replaced outdoor lightbulbs, replaced the umbrella and an outdoor chair. We have removed from the premises a clock radio that did not work, and added bigger wineglasses, per his request, as the ones we had were not large enough for his liking.

Another awesome time at the beach house!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Kay & Brent's beach house several times and each time we seem to enjoy it more! The house is homey and comfortable and the ocean is right outside the door. The seals and dolphins were there to entertain us.

Kay & Brent have always been so nice and helpful and that is always appreciated.

We will be back soon!

Girls Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful girl's retreat lots of laughs.

To be on the beach steps from the ocean is wonderful. We had great sunsets every night.

The sound of the waves at night made us all sleep soundly.

I will be back!

Great location. Amazing beach. Indoor amenities very good, comfotable beds and furniture. Kitchen nicely stocked with the necessities. Interior was very clean and prepared. Recommend new window coverings as several were non-functional and the exterior door locks would lock unexpectedly (We got locked out).

Outdoor furniture was ok. Bit dated and could be upgraded. BBQ needs to be replaced and a fire ring would be nice.

Overall 9 stars out of 10.
