Property description

Kick off your flip-flops, open the signature Orange Door, and be transported to a comfortable, relaxed retreat where it is summer all the time. The bright, cheeky, remodeled 50s bungalow is situated 8 houses from the Pacific in the very best neighborhood of Pierpont Beach, a quiet residential stretch of 21 lanes nestled between Pierpont Blvd and the ocean.

Stay a week or month to get adjusted to life at a slower pace! Our beach house is ideal for singles, couples and small families looking to immerse themselves in the local beach lifestyle and have some good old-fashioned fun. People are friendly and relaxed, because it's the lanes!

Car: Recommended

*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.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Pierpont Bay, Ventura, CA, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
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.
