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

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!!
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.
Wife and I spent the week in Ventura. Found this gem of a home while looking to find a place to stay. Viking 6 burner gas cook top, Granite, Views from every room. Weather is tough to beat. 4.5 / 5 would there be this rating category (gotta leave room for the perfect 10) but honestly this place is on the hill, roof deck top is where the stairs lead you to BBQ (views are 180 degrees of ocean and city night lights.
Would stay there again for sure.
Our little family of 3 just returned from our vacation from Lisa's amazing Ventura hillside home, and we can't get over how lucky we were. From start to finish, the whole experience was just about as good as it can get. Lisa was very helpful and welcoming on emails when we were deciding where to book. I had trouble understanding how a 3,330sf+ home could be as affordable as a tiny shack on the beach, but she assured me that was the correct rate. Lisa was out of town for our dates, so she had her partner Maureen look after us during our stay, and she could not have been accommodating as well. The house was truly too much for a husband, wife, and a 2.5 year old. It's so beautifully thought out, with an open floor plan and rooms on 3 separate levels. It was tastefully decorated and well stocked. Our biggest problem was keeping track of our little gremlin because the house was so big and there were so many nooks and crannies for him to explore. Thoughtfully, Lisa called us in advance and expressed that the house wasn't exactly childproofed. But with a few adjustments and hiding a few reachable items, we had no problems at all. Owen loved exploring the yard and playing with all his trucks on the porch with just about the most amazing view you could imagine, until you go on the roof deck and see it gets even better. Seriously, you can basically see the entire coast from Emma Wood down to Silver Strand from this viewpoint, and the city lights look so beautiful at night as well. We didn't use them, but there are barbecues and fire pit tables on various levels that would be perfect for entertaining. But we mostly kept to ourselves and enjoyed the abundance of space. Oh, and the master bedroom is ridiculous: giant bed; fireplace: huge vanity; a tub so big we couldn't let Owen sit it by himself or he'd drown; the world's biggest double-shower that let all three of us get in at the same time and you could even towel off in the corner and not get wet while still IN the shower; and a walk-in closet that you could rent for about $1,400/month in San Francisco it's so big.
It's not just the size; everything was just really, really nice. It's a beautiful, quiet part of town with spectacular views, but then you're literally about 1.5 minutes from downtown where all the action is, and about 5 minutes from the beach. It's just a great place overall with good, kind people looking after it. The neighbors are all nice, too. So, go there and enjoy yourselves!
