About the property

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

This great two-story family house is 'inside the gate' of Faria Beach with easy access to a very quiet beach, fantastic front-yard surfing, a tennis court, children's playground and grassy park. Truly the ideal spot for a great family getaway.

LOCATION: Conveniently located near Santa Barbara, Carpenteria and Ventura, just off the 101 freeway. We are 65 miles north of LA, about 20 minutes south of Santa Barbara and just 10 minutes from downtown Ventura and Carpenteria.

This is a beautiful, California cottage-style, two-story home on one of the largest lots in Faria. It is classic California beach living at its best. Enjoy stunning ocean views from the huge deck, family room, kitchen, upstairs master bedroom and guest cabana. (TWO bedrooms with incredible ocean views make this house a stand-out stay!) Watch dolpins and seals play in the morning waves, with the Channel Islands in the background, and then watch gorgeous sunsets from one of the largest, most private oceanfront decks in Faria. Experience fabulous ocean access with all Faria homes built on seawalls.

FAMILY ROOM: The first floor of the main house is open plan with a large Family Room. Enjoy the ocean stone gas fireplace, new surround sound speaker system, flat screen TV with cable/blu-ray/netflix and wifi with MP3 and airplay access.

Plenty of room for everyone with a sectional down-filled couch, extra seating area in front of big oceanfront windows and a beautiful teak dining table with plenty of room for a wonderful family meal.

Two floor-to-ceiling windows and beautiful glass double doors make up the the oceanside wall of the family room. No blocking this view! The family room also opens to a side patio area with an ocean stone gas fireplace, high end gas grill and lounge area for cozy, protected entertaining.

CABANA: One of the best features of this home is the detached guest Cabana. Situated right next to the water, it provides one-of-a-kind views. A one bedroom, one bath with all new interior construction, new flat screen, loveseat for reading and small dining area.

In addition to the queen bed, there is a twin convertible sofa, which is perfect for parents with small children.

KITCHEN: The kitchen is a fantastic and spacious cooking and gathering space. Enjoy the Viking stove, stainless appliances and professional butcher block/stainess kitchen island.

Hand-laid, ocean-themed tiles decorate the counters and backsplash, adding to the kitchen's charm. There is plenty of room for everyone with the kitchen bar and stools!

BEDROOMS/BATHROOMS: Two bedrooms have ocean views! The master suite upstairs is expansive and charming. With a roomy king bed, wall-mounted flat screen and a great sitting area in front of the wall of oceanfront windows - it is a perfect spot for relaxing or watching the sunset. The master bath has beautiful green tile with an antique double sink and clawfoot tub.

The ground floor bedroom has a queen bed, charming beadboard railing, full bath right outside and a comfy reading chair for afternoon escapes.

SURF: This home has one of California's finest surf breaks right in the front yard.

Please come enjoy this beautiful, one-of-a-kind beach home!

About Stephanie & Mark

We had a dream to live on the ocean and this home is it! One avid surfer and one avid 'lounger' so this home was just perfect for us. We are Southern transplants living in California and enjoy this home as much as we can. It's our quiet escape and how we recharge. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.

Stephanie & Mark purchased this house in 2011

Why Stephanie & Mark chose Central Coast

It's just over an hour from our home so a very easy drive. It still feels like we're disconnecting enough to allow us to wind down. The location is fantastic since we spend time in Santa Barbara, Carpinteria and Ventura. Faria Beach is one of the most beautiful places and we fell in love with it when we rented our first house for a weekend away.

What makes this house unique

Our home sits on one of California's best surf breaks. Exceptional for surfing, paddle boarding, kayaking and swimming. The beach area changes during the year and can be beautiful sand or gorgeous rocks with sea anemones ... it is so varied. With views of the Channel Islands we can't beat the sunsets.

Great vacation rental!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great beach rental!! Very clean and well decorated. Everything was in working order and the kitchen is incredidbly stocked! They even have lots of beautiful serving platters and dishes. I was very impressed. The beds and pillows are very comfortable and they provide lots of extras too. Everything was perfect! Also, the owners are very nice and accommodating!!

If you are looking for a nice, relaxing beach house, this is the one! My only complaint is that we couldn't stay forever!! We will definitely rent this house again!

Faria Beach Fantasy

  • 5 of 5

This was an incredible vacation for our family of 4 teenagers. Best beach to learn to surf on. Best rental unit. Everything you would want and then some...! So much care and detail with the home, ambience and local things to do and see. We loved it and would recommend this to anyone who loves privacy and safety and just loves the beach and water. Definitely hope we can stay here again some day!

Family time

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 days with our adult children at this wonderful beach home on Faria Beach. The house is warm and inviting and the kitchen is fully stocked for ease of meal preparation. There is plenty of comfortable seating and bedding . Games for all age levels abound! We took advantage of the nice weather and enjoyed the beach, beginning surfing and used the tennis courts twice! Love the location and accessibility and great sleeping and relaxation too! Excellent accommodations and very clean.

What a great place to have my children and their families join me for a lovely vacation. The house was just like being at your home with all the conveniences of a 5 star hotel. Hope to do it again soon.

We are 'inside the gate' of private Faria Beach so safe for kids to ride bikes and spend time on the playground. A lush, grassy area is perfect for picnics or sports and the tennis court is beautiful. The Rincon Highway outside the gate is perfect for a quiet morning run or nice bike ride.
