About Cecilia

Family owned, we love our beach house and love sharing it with travelers from all over the world.

When submitting a stay request please be accurate with the number of nights you would like and the number of people in your party. Please tell me a bit about your group and your stay.

Cecilia purchased this house in 2010

Why Cecilia chose Ventura

Our home at Faria Beach has the best location for surfing, SUP, boogie boarding, tide pooling, kayaking or just relaxing and enjoying the view. We frequently see seals, sea lion, dolphins, sea birds and an occasional whale.

The house is nicely appointed and comfortable for your quiet vacation.

What makes this house unique

Located in the prime area of Faria Point located right between Ventura and Carpinteria. Take the day and go to Santa Barbara, the Santa Ynez wine country, Ojai or Los Angeles. Or just stay put and enjoy the beach, tennis or relax in the hot tub overlooking the ocean.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Review #1505934 "Incredible Family Surf Vacation"

The first thing we thought when we pulled into the gate was...WOW! The grounds were immaculate, the gardens beautiful, and the 3 car garage and large parking area were more than enough. Upon walking in the front door all you see is OCEAN! I've stayed in a lot of beach homes, this one is as close as you can get. My wife, newborn, and I stayed for 2 weeks and wish we could've stayed longer. The living, dining, and kitchen all flow into one another and are completely open. The kitchen is recently updated with a great commercial grade oven and range. The fireplace in the living room was so wonderful at night, creating a dreamy ambiance. We stayed in the upstairs master bedroom, mainly because I wanted to open my eyes in the morning and have waves be the first thing I see. It was truly wonderful. The sound of the surf lulled us and our baby to sleep each night, and the gentle light of dawn woke us each morning. No clocks and no schedule for 2 weeks!!! I surfed about 3 times a day right in front of the house, or would take the seven minute beach walk down to Mondos, a great longboard wave. The wave in front of the house was usually empty, we did have a crowd of 4 one day! In the winter the wave can get truly epic, with rides a few hundred yards long. The advantage of staying this close was being able to surf as soon as conditions were good. One afternoon in particular the wind died suddenly, the tide came up and there were perfect A-frames right in front of the house. I was in the water within 30 seconds! Because of it's perfect surf location this house is also listed on Wavecation. There is a wonderful hot tub on the deck. We had a problem with it heating at one point but the owner sent out a service man the next day and came out herself to check on it. My wife loved the fact that there was full size washer and dryer in the garage so she could wash baby clothes. My parents and another couple joined us for a few days and everyone LOVED the property. It is such a relaxing place. If you're into night life or being in the center of all the action, this is NOT the place for you. If you like sunning on the deck, surfing, taking family walks at low-tide or reading away the afternoon and then cooking dinner in a beautiful kitchen, then this place may be for you.

This home was fantastic for our family. Large, open, and family friendly! Very well stocked kitchen, which is a bonus! Perfect for surfing, sunning, lounging. The sleep number bed in the master is a very comfortable, and the other beds are quite comfortable as well. Love the hot tub for right after surfing! We will definitely stay here again if we can!

We were having a family gathering nearby and rented this house for "overflow" guests. Everything was perfect - location, location, location. As a added bonus,we could not have had better weather.

The video really conveys the warmth of this home. It is not just a house, it is a home that wraps you in its arms and makes you feel like you belong there. The owner (I don't know the protocol for naming names) is a true human being that cares about her place and that you enjoy your time. Not some sterile management company. I highly recommend this home. Just don't book it when I'm trying to go!

We fully enjoyed our stay and can't wait until we can visit again! The home was very clean, and nicely decorated. The beds were very comfortable. The kitchen was great to cook in and had every gadget anyone would ever need. The view and location was stunning! Loved going to sleep & waking up to the sound of the ocean. We enjoyed our walks on the beach and lot's we saw lots of dolphins, star fish and mussels, just to name a few. The deck was awesome, and we spent a lot of time just sitting and watching the view. The dining table was a nice size and in the evening we enjoyed playing games around it with the 6 of us. We made wonderful memories and wish we were still there! I highly recommend!!! Have fun!
