About the property

Charming Ocean Front Cottage at Faria Beach!

Stay at this charming oceanfront cottage where you can fall asleep to the sounds to the surf every night and wake up each morning to the perfect setting for a great day! Enjoying the oceanfront experience is always breath-taking when you have the opportunity to see diving pelicans, local seabirds, dolphins, seals and if you are lucky, migrating whales! This cottage home is the perfect setting for a romantic getaway or a family vacation.

Enjoy a bright, open and fully-stocked kitchen, which has all the essentials you will need to enjoy your stay plus you cannot beat the unobstructed ocean views while cooking.

The spacious deck is the perfect centerpiece for entertaining or sunbathing! The view of the Channel Islands is amazing on a clear day and the killer sunsets over the ocean will have you wanting to return again and again. A private stairway off the deck leads down to the beach for excellent tide pool exploring.

Faria’s gated community provides residents and guests with a private tennis court, playground, grassy play area, quiet streets, and 2 private beach access points. These access points are just a short walk with-in the community and you will be given the access codes during your stay.

The attached two car garage has a washer/dryer, spare refrigerator, chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards and all the sand toys you would need to enjoy a great day at the beach.

The home is about a 10-minute drive to Downtown Ventura where you will find a variety of shops and great restaurants on Main Street. Also, downtown is the Museum of Ventura County and the San Buenaventura Mission. You can also take a nice hike above Ventura’s City Hall to get a birds eye view of the city or for an even better view, drive up to the cross at Grant Park.

Santa Barbara, just a short 25-minute drive north is one of Southern California's most charming cities which has Mediterranean-like climate, palm tree lined streets and beautiful Spanish architecture.

Come stay at the beach, we would love to have you as a guest!

Adorable beach front home!

  • 5 of 5

We used to live in Seacliff and we live living in the ocean and seeing all the ocean life, saw dolphins, seals, pelicans, crabs and seagulls! Our pups first time and she loved the ocean and chasing the birds! House was perfect for our needs, had everything we would need to have a fun time so you don't need to lug everything from home. We loved Faria beach colony and may even look to retire there or in that area.

Not what I hoped for

  • 3 of 5

I did a lot of research before booking this house as it was my first VRBO experience. I'll try to be objective.

I thought the pictures showed a funky, dated beach house with a great view. And the price was right. I was sold on the location and the patio area. I was travelling with my 80-year-old mother to visit a 90-year-old friend who is living in Ventura. I needed a house with one level, two bedrooms and easy access for my mom and her friend who would be visiting for one day. The house seemed to have all the right features.

I've gotten 2 requests from VRBO to write a review. I wasn't going to write one until I just saw the one submitted the day I checked into the house with my mother on 8/11. I had the same issue with the house--ants all over the kitchen, master bedroom and bathrooms. When I contacted the agent on Day 2 asking if I could treat them she said the cleaning crew had no evidence of ants when they cleaned the house before we arrived. It's hard to believe that when the person before us had the same issue. We left a day early, in part, because of the ants. I can't give the house a great review for that reason and I'm a little annoyed that we had to contend with the ants when there are so many instructions for leaving the house in good condition when you depart.

As for the house itself--the view and location is awesome. It was really fun watching the dolphins in the afternoon. But the house is more worn than I expected and there is a lot of stuff that makes it look more dated--old cushions, knick knacks everywhere. Items from the 1980s. The pictures are accurate but up close things don't look as good as the pictures. The house does have everything you would need--good tv and internet service, all the appliances are nice.

The communication with the agent leading up the rental was terrific. I had all the information I needed. All the instructions were accurate.

We did not have great weather and I may have been able to overlook the ants if we had been able to enjoy the back patio more.

Beach is where the heart is....

  • 5 of 5

It was awesome, the house had everything.

My only gripe is ANTS...NONSTOP ANTS ,EVERYWHERE.

I suspect it is common. And the whole experience was great and I'm sad it wasn't for longer, ants and all.

Wonderful family experience

  • 5 of 5

We had a blast staying at this very comfortable home right on the water. Kids enjoyed exploring the tide pools and discovering the marine life.

Had numerous dolfin shows but what was the most memorable was the mother Dolfins showing their babies how to ride the surf. Once in a lifetime experience.

Escape to Faria

  • 5 of 5

An escape it was! My girlfriend and I spent 6 nights here and it was absolutely perfect. The house had all of the amenities and the location of the property was great. It was really easy booking with the agent as well which made the process a whole lot stressful. I am no doubt renting here again in the future.

Wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

Incredible view from this oceanfront property. We loved listening to the waves crash on shore and against the sea wall at times. We saw dolphins and a sea lion one morning. The night sky is incredibly and surprisingly clear from this area. The house was clean and had all the comforts of home.
