Why The Owner chose Ventura

I built this home for myself and lived here 10 glorious years. Now I use it as a second home and love it.

What makes this house unique

The views are just spectacular and the open floor plan of the house is just great. You will enjoy the beautiful sunrises and sunsets from inside or outside on 3 large decks.

Lovely well-appointed home with all the extras

  • 5 of 5

My mother and I wanted to stay in a home, while visiting the area. This custom-built home is beautiful, well-appointed in a beach theme, and stocked with all the extras you could possibly need. The three decks allowed us different views of sunrise, sunset and all hours in between. The kitchen is well-stocked with supplies needed to cook meals. The beds were comfortable. The homeowner was responsive to my many questions, prior to booking. We were very comfortable and felt safe, in this nice ocean-view neighborhood. I walked the neighborhood daily and discovered a lovely botanical garden with the original cross from the nearby mission, thanks to a suggestion from the owner. There are plenty of eating options nearby and lots of things to do in the area. Visiting the nearby Mission and Presidential Library was a highlight of the trip for me. Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us!

Amazing Property Exceeding All Expecations

  • 5 of 5

FABULOUS with a capital 'F'

The property was amazing. We arrived in Ventura from Australia to a house that had an amazing feel and facilities and the most spectacular view. A true home away from home with all the trimmings. The property exceeded all expectations.

We came to Ventura for a family wedding. The roof top deck with its BBQ facilities provided a special spot were we got to know our new in-laws over great food, fabulous wine, amazing company as we watched the sun set over Ventura. It was really special.

The property is in great location as its only a short drive and nice walk down into the heart of Ventura. It was truly comfortable place for our family to chill and hang out for the 9 nights we were there. I would definitely recommend this property for others wanting a truly special experience and should our family return to Ventura would book the property again.

The hosts were very helpful and accommodating. 5 stars all round.

What an amazing first experience in using Homeaway! This is our first time ever using this type of service and we were completely blown away. Our son started college in Santa Barbara and we wanted to stay at a place somewhat midway between Santa Barbara and LA. Ventura was the perfect location. This property did not disappoint in the least. The pictures on this site as great as they are does not do any justice to the live experience. This home truly felt like "home away from home".

The amenities are amazing, the house is well appointed and comfortable, and the views are incredible. Our busy schedule with getting our oldest acclimated in his college prevented us from using the grill and a few other amenities - this is our only regret.

If you love to cook like we do, you will absolutely love the huge viking stove and the "amazing" kitchen. The kitchen has any and everything you would ever need. The views from the master bedroom are amazing, especially laying in the bed at night looking at the skyline. We are a family of six and there was more than enough room to accommodate everyone and everyone's personal space. In addition, we just loved the spiritual ques all over the house both inside and out, which added a certain level of "extra" comfort during our stay.

The neighborhood is quiet and the town of Ventura is very nice as well and has a pretty vibrant nightlife. The week we were there was the annual fair and the position of the house provided the most amazing views of the fireworks at the closing of the event. This was a fabulous additional bonus. As stressful an emotional an experience it is to be dropping off your first child at college 3000 miles away, we would like to think that the peace and comfort provided by this property allowed us to put all of that aside and just "be".

This is an experience that we don't mind repeating if ever we are in Ventura in the future. Many thanks to Lisa for meeting our every need during our stay and thanks for opening your home to us.

God Bless.

Warmest regards ~ The Simon Family - NJ

Wow - what a tremendous place

  • 5 of 5

We had a GREAT time at this place. It's nestled near the top of the hills overlooking Ventura. Other reviews rave about the views and they don't disappoint! Rooftop terrace with BBQ and great furniture make it an ideal place to hang out, but so is the deck on the first level or the family room area!

Master bedroom is first class - massive room, bathtub and shower that made me think of a 5 star hotel. In addition a large walk-in closet and overall top shelf appearance.

We we there with three teenagers and the two girls stayed in the twin and the boy in his own room - all had their own bathrooms which is a plus.

Kitchen was set for a gourmet chef and since we like to cook we used the Viking range and ample space to create some fun meals!

Highly recommend this place as a great So-Cal getaway.

Our family stayed over Thanksgiving week 2015 and couldn't have been happier with the home. It is simply gorgeous and perfect for entertaining. Everything was in perfect order when we arrived and we couldn't believe we were going to stay for the whole week. The roof top deck was a major hit with family and friends who vistied and we lucked out with such great weather to be able to enjoy it the whole week. We will definitely be looking for any excuse to rent this home again. The owner makes it so easy, all you have to do is sit back and relax!!

Ventura, Ca

Late summer getaway

  • 5 of 5

The photos only give you a brief glimpse, the real view is breathtaking. Our stay was wonderful. My family has always gathered in the kitchen no matter the size. We not only were able to prepare gourmet meals but those waiting to eat could keep the cooks company while they were cooking. The layout allowed our family to visit while cooking, watching TV or working on a puzzle but it also allowed for a sleepy head to sneek off for a quick cat nap. The afternoons on the deck, even with a few clouds in the sky, made you feel like you were at a five star resort.
