Beautiful Ventura Hillside Cottage With Beautiful Sunset Ocean View

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 30 nights


About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, 6 Sleeps

Very clean cozy 2 bedroom on the hillside with a beautiful sunset ocean view. The sunset picture that are posted on my site are from this property. This vacation rental has a very large private back yard, you have no one behind you but the beautiful hills and mountains surrounding Ventura, with a view of Ventura's visual land mark, 2 trees.

(I have recently opened up the intire back yard for only this vacation rental)

This back yard has a beautiful 2 level wood deck great for barbecuing entertaining or just relaxing. Enjoy a glass of wine under the romantically lit back deck. (The pictures say it all.) This property faces a direction that brings in the morning sun, for you to enjoy your coffee/tea. Also in the back yard there is a garden and a canopy area for relaxing.

The times I've stayed in this rental, I've enjoyed the peacefulness and privacy, you can easily forget where you are.

This rental has a brand new Cal King bed with beautiful white linens and one queen. You can enjoy a 50 inch Sony HD TV, watch a movie or your favorite TV shows. It has excellent cable Internet wi-Fi.

This is a well-planned beautifully decorated vacation rental with all the amenities and everything you'll need to feel that you are in a home not a rental or a hotel room. Competitively priced in a great location in the city of Ventura, close to the beach and downtown.

On or about June 13 my picture gallery will be updated to show everything this rental has to offer.

As a new addition to this rental, I will be making my three windowed art studio off the wood deck into a nicely decorated third bedroom. Great for anyone, teenagers and kids.

Cute cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My family had an extended stay at this charming cottage. It is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. There is a lovely outdoor patio as well. The owner was friendly and helpful. Looks just like the photos. Would definitely recommend to friends or family.

Great place to relax

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely relaxing stay here. The only reason it is not a 5 star is the lack of counter space in the kitchen. The patio was huge and wonderful for family gathering and the beds were very comfortable.

Enjoyed the Visit

  • 5 of 5

Our needs were pretty simple, we just needed a place to relax and be comfortable while visiting family in Ventura. The property was clean, quaintly decorated and the beds were very comfortable. Location for us was perfect, half way between the downtown area and our family.

The kitchen provides plenty of space to cook. Microwave and coffee maker are available. The owner contacted us via email during our stay to make sure we had all we needed. TV was available in the living room and master bedroom. Nice deck.

I would definitely stay here again.

The unit is nicely decorated and the landlord was accomadating. The patio area is very nice! However it's not really a cottage it's more of a duplex. We didn't know we were going to share a unit with the second unit window facing the driveway. Eventually the second tenant complained of noise which was normal foot traffic to and from our vehicle. This unit is probably best for someone who wants to rent both units to avoid privacy and noise issues. The description of the property is not forthcoming about it being a shared unit. The ocean view is distant and only visible from the front doorstep. More kitchen supplies are needed such as a vegetable peeler, cutting boards, cooking bowls, BBQ utensils. Otherwise it is a nice unit and priced appropriately.

Owner's Response: My Vacation Rental is in a quiet upscale neighborhood. This vacation renter inquired about a party of 3 adults and 2 children, when this family arrived, to my surprise they showed up with 5 children and 2 adults. Any complaints from the neighbors caused by the noise level of the number of children in this party, would certainly be understandable. Considering the number of positive responses that I consistently receive on this vacation rental, unfortunately there are times when some vacation renters miss represent themselves.

Perfect for our Family

  • 5 of 5

This vacation rental was perfect for our family of 5. The home is cozy and nicely decorated. It has everything you may need in a home away from home - a cozy living room with a sofa, chairs, TV and cable; a bright kitchen with pots/pans, cooking utensils, appliances, and place settings; a fabulous washer and dryer; 2 comfortable bedrooms with beds, soft linens, dressers and closets; and a beautiful deck with patio furniture, a BBQ and amazing sunset views! It is in a quiet neighborhood with friendly neighbors. The home is close to just about anything you would need or want to do in Ventura from the beach and aquatic center to great restaurants and even the San Buenaventura Mission. It is a duplex and both bedroom windows do look out to the other backyard, but we made the best of it. The owner, Shelley, is very friendly and helpful. She responded quickly to any questions we had. We enjoyed our little getaway at this vacation rental - we have fond memories!

Sunset Views

  • 5 of 5

Charming and chic this comfortable 2 bedroom 1 bath vacation rental has everything you need for a true getaway. Nestled in a quiet Ventura neighborhood with easy access to town, the beach and freeway close to Santa Barbara, Santa Ynez wine country, Ojai Valley. Highlight of this cute hideaway is the huge wood deck off the back yard that opens to wilderness are and provides classic sunset views with a peek of the Chanel Islands.

You will want to stay for weeks and weeks to take advantage of all the things there are to do nearby.

Shelley will make you feel like a local in no time with hints about where to find the perfect breakfast spot, the best golf around and that special dinner place. But of course the furnished rental is set up so you can stay home and invite friends over for a bar-b-que on the back deck.
