About Mary Kay Doubek
This photo was taken at one of several vistas along the trail in the Ventura Botanical Gardens. It represents one of several reasons we fell in love with Ventura: Year-round Beautiful Mediterranean Climate. One of Ventura's best-kept secrets is that it is even better after summer vacation. We transplanted here six years ago from LA, which we loved, except for the density, traffic, and daily grind. Now we live just blocks from the vacation rental house and are delighted to share this special place with others.
Mary Kay Doubek purchased this House in 2014
Why Mary Kay Doubek chose Pierpont Bay
We purchased the beach house from a friend who cherished it. She had a sterling reputation for gracious hospitality. We were honored that she offered the house to us when she decided to follow her dream to work as a full-time writer.
What makes this House unique
Our bungalow lets you experience classic SoCal small town beach living as it was 50 years ago. The Pierpont Lanes are relaxed, friendly, clean, safe, and quiet. Pierpont Beach is one of the very few in California where you are allowed to walk your dog, always on a leash. Many locals and visitors say our neighborhood is a throwback to simpler times, but in the very best way. You can take a leisurely stroll along the sand while gazing at a majestic sunset, get a great meal on Seaward Avenue, and stop for Surfin' Yogurt on the way home. Shorts, tee shirts, and flip flops are the local uniform. If you want to venture beyond Pierpont, but don't want to drive...no problem. You can hop the free trolley to the Harbor and Downtown (Wednesdays-Sundays, 11:00 a.m.-11:00 p.m.*) for shopping and restaurants featuring the bountiful seasonal produce of Ventura County. Our comfortable environment is perfectly suited for one to eight people, plus up to two dogs. Whether your objective is to build sandcastles with the kids, write the great American novel, or live like the locals while in Ventura on business, our beach bungalow half a block away from the beautiful Pacific, is just the ticket.

Sweet beach bungalow
Family of five, thoroughly enjoyed our week long stay.
Such a perfect house for a family get-away. Comfy and well-equipped.
This lovely home was such a treat to visit. Great location, comfortable beds. Nicely furnished and decorated. We used the kitchen every day and never lacked a pan or dish. Fantastic host who was easy to communicate with. We will be back.
Thank you, Jennifer, for the very nice review. We rely a lot on positive reviews and I am so glad you were comfortable with your family. We get a lot of California families like yours, looking for an easy getaway for a week in the summer. Please come again!
2nd time renting this property. Homeowner very easy to work with. Great backyard to visit with friends and family in the evenings. Close to restaurants, grocery store, coffee/tea, doughnuts in the morning, harbor.
Thanks Melanie. Love having you come and visit us from Texas!
Perfect Getaway Place
The Orange Door Bungalow was just perfect for a "Galifornia Getaway" for my daughter, two granddaughters, and me. The inside was just as welcoming as the outside and very comfortable. The lovely backyard was a welcome surprise. We loved our daily beach walks - so convenient - as well as visiting local sites. We're just looking for an excuse to return!
Gail, I love the multi-generational gals getaway you planned for your daughter, two granddaughters, and yourself. It's a great way to share quality time at our small, family-friendly home in this classic SoCal beach town. Maybe you should make it an annual tradition!
Charming beach cottage
We stayed for March and April at 1362 Camden Lane. We would loved to have spent the entire winter there, but this is a popular destination. The landlords are helpful and friendly. We never had any issues they didn't deal with immediately. They responded to all or our requests. We love winters in Ventura and this is a perfect place to call home.
Beautiful home away from home!
Wonderful place to stay with all of the amenities. Right next to the beach which is clean and a nice stretch of beach. Very dog friendly. 2 blocks from the park and locals are friendly!
*Pierpont beach is well known by surfers far and wide. It is also uncrowded (due to limited parking) for swimming, fishing, and leisurely walks with the pooch. Stroll to the Mermaid in Marina Park with the kids and dog. You'll see other families, dogs, surfers, for sure. Occasional treats include pelicans, sea lions, and even dolphins! *Extensive Bike Paths along the coastal and inland Ojai routes are a beautiful way to get some exercise and fresh air. *Whale Watching and Boat Tours of Channel Islands are available nearby for seeing wildlife and nature. Check out Island Packers at nearby Harbor Village. *Harbor Village features video arcade, merry-go-round, restaurants, shops. and special events on weekends. *San Buenaventura Mission is a cherished piece of Ventura History in Downtown. Ventura County Museum is across from the mission. Make a day of it by visiting both and have a bite to eat in one of many Downtown restaurants. *The BMX Track at Ventura Community Park is very popular with the kids. *Check out the Mullin Automotive Museum in nearby Oxnard for a fine collection of vehicles, especially from the Art Deco era.
