About Owner/Property Manager

We , Tom and Kathleen Koenig, have lived in Venura since 1991. We always dreamed of living at the beach and purchased this house in 1996. We rebuilt it 10 years ago. We LOVE Ventura and especially our area of Pierpont. We are close enough to LA so that you can get to all it has to offer in a few short hours yet far enough away to not have to deal with the big city hassels. Tom was an LA City Firefighter for 31 years. Kathleen is a professional artist. We are both semi-retired but keep busy with 5 grown kids and 10 grandkids. We have been married for more than 46 years and still have a GREAT time with eachother. we love the outdoors, traveling and entertaining family and friends. And our home and the area we live in means we have guests often. There is nothing like walking down to the beach in the morning and seeing the islands or dolphins surfing the waves. There is something magical about looking at the ocean and then turning around toward our mountains and seeing snow covering the backcountry. It is a slice of paradise ! We will do everything we can to make your vacation so memorable that you will be wanting to come back again and again.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this house in 1996

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Pierpont Bay

Our property and the town of Ventura are in an ideal location. Again it is close to all of the entertainment options Southern California has to offer but we are nestled in a spot that it unique. Most of the beach communities are really crowded. The beaches, restauraunts etc. are packed with tourists to the point where it can make it hard to relax and enjoy. Not here in Ventura. We have all that the other beach towns have without the huge crowds! For Shoppers, our downtown has great women's boutiques, our mall has all the well known stores ( and it is just 5 miles from us) like Macys, H&M, Forever 21, Express, JC Pennys, Target. Camarillo Outlets is world famous. There are tours that come from around the world specifically to shop there. Getting there is a 15 minute drive. We have 2 Trader Joes and Whole Foods grocery store will be opening in the next few months. We have an amazing Farmers Market every Saturday in the downtown with our local farmers bringing their produce, flowers, cheeses meats and more to market.

What makes this house unique

We built our home to be comfortable and cozy. We want our guests to feel at home from the moment they walk in. We designed it to be light and open with lots of windows. When we were planning the backyard we wanted complete privacy and we have accomplished that. You could spend your entire visit here never getting in your car because everything you need is within walking distance.

Beautiful beach home!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a weekend stay for a wedding in the area. I was baking for the wedding and needed a large kitchen and this house provided that. The house is a beautiful beach cottage, and really makes you feel at home. Kathleen met us at the door when we got there and gave us a little tour of the house, she was very easy to communicate with and if we needed anything she was just a phone call away! It's a very quaint area, with restaurants and shops all right around the corner! If you're looking for a little getaway, or a family vacation this is the perfect place! Kathleen was absolutely fantastic and we would rent from them again!

We were close to the beach and close to the store. It was roomy and very comfortable. The kitchen was up to date and had everything we needed. We especially loved the 2 outdoor seating areas. We'll definitely be coming back

We loved this house.

  • 5 of 5

We felt at home right away. The house was comfortable and clean, perfect for our small family that traveled from different parts of California to spend time together. Once there, we didn't even need our cars. Whatever we needed or wanted was within walking distance - the ocean and a family-friendly beach were a block away. Stores and restaurants were were close-by. We'll be back.

Owner's Response: Thank you Marilyn for your wonderful review. Our goal is always to have our guests feel comfortable and well taken care of. Also, we realize guests have their figures crossed when they arrive at a property... hoping it's all that the pictures and descriptions say it is. We know that when our renters enter our home they can see it's all that we promised it would be! Please come again and thank you! Kathleen

Relaxing beach bungalow

  • 5 of 5

This property was the perfect little retreat for a relaxing beach vacation. It is a very short walk (less than 5 minutes) to the beach, the grocery store, the liquor store, a quaint local coffee shop (or a Starbucks if you choose) and a couple of local restaurants. It was convenient for a morning walk on the beach or an evening drink while watching the sunset.

The house was clean with all the necessary aminities for cooking inside or on the grill. The back patio area was great for reading a book or sitting by the fire at night. The beds were very comfortable. The owner and her property manager were always responsive both before and during our stay when we had any questions.

Ventura is a laid-back beach town with a quaint downtown area and a nice marina. It is a short and scenic drive up to Santa Barbara which is also worth visiting.

Ventura is a bit of paradise. it is a stunning beach town that sits on the central coast. Our home is 1 block off the beach and best of all our beach is uncrowed and very private. We have a 18 mile bike path that will take you along the water front and up to Ojai. We have world class wineries less than an hour away. Our marina (2 miles away) boasts restaurants, fishing excursions, kayak adventures that will take you to the Channel Islands just 11 miles off the coast. Our downtown, a five minute car or taxi ride,has everything you could want...restaurants, theaters, boutiques, bars and nightlife. We host a Beers and Blues Festival in May that is awesome. We have walking tours for the 'Foodies' and Wine tours for the wine enthuasists. Our village (known by the locals as Seward Village) is less than a 5 minute walk from our house. There you will find a great pub and grille, an italian bistro with awesome food and drink, Dukes a local favorite that serves up burgers, beer and lots of fish , and a sushi spot. For the coffee and sweet tooth people ther is a coffee house with in house made desserts and a frozen yogurt shop. A Starbucks and grocery store is just a block up from the Village.
