Beautiful upscale Faria Beach Home, newly renovated, just steps from a private beach entrance. The ocean waves crash in view on the rustic beach deck that over looks 180 degrees of the county beach line. From Ventura to Santa Barbara, to the islands off the coast, this house is centered in the beautiful views of the horizon.
**Chef information available for your booking if you’d like to have him cook a meal or two for you!**
This outstanding home has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and sleeps 8 comfortably.
The master bedroom has a California King bed, large closet and full bathroom. It has beautiful stone shower floors with a wonderfully refreshing rain bird shower head. The open glass of the master shower is inviting and makes you feel like you’re in a spa.
The second bedroom has a Queen size bed with plush bedding and a large closet. It is a wonderful place to disappear, open the windows, and take in the sound of relaxing waves.
There are two doors leading into the second bathroom, one from the hallway and one from the second bedroom. This bathroom has a bathtub with luxurious custom glass sliding doors and detailed stone walls.
The third bedroom has an awesome custom Full over Full bunk bed set. This is the “Pirate Room” that is targeted to the kids, but yet sleeps 4 adults comfortably. This room has a Blu Ray DVD player as well for your enjoyment.
Spacious kitchen fully equipped and allows for great entertaining! Plenty of cookware, dishes, and glasses. Even plastic dishware for the little ones! This top of the line, crafted kitchen has alluring cabinetry with stunningly paired granite counter tops. The 8 person kitchen table and 3 place setting at the island, compliments the kitchen’s open floor plan that rolls into the living room. A gas powered BBQ sits on the deck for your use.
Downstairs there is a sitting room / library where you can read a book and take a book!
This gated community also has a tennis court that you can access, just make sure you bring your tennis racquets! Right next to the tennis court is a great little playground for the kiddos. Maybe bring your bicycles for a great family ride along the coast! There is a great little Hamburger stand just a short distance from the home. If you feel like heading out for the day, Carpinteria and Santa Barbra are just 15 to 20 minutes away! Downtown Ventura is just 10 min away with great restaurants and family fun!

Local Services & Businesses
Sports & Adventure Activities
Good location, had a great time, but some easy fixes could make it much better
The good bits:
- Great location very close to a semi-private beach with good surf - fast to get to Ventura or Santa Barbara. House had body boards and beach toys which were not mentioned in description but we enjoyed.
- Large dining table with 8 tall chairs was great - made it a sociable place to eat, drink, play games, use computer, etc., with a view of the sea.
- Whole place clean and well maintained (although ants were invading the kitchen).
- Well equipped kitchen.
- Really liked the fact that we didn't have to strip beds, wash towels, clean everywhere on day of departure (which home rentals we have had in the past have insisted on). They have a cleaner for that and it makes for a much less stressful time on last day of holiday.
Areas that could be improved quite easily:
- Beds were covered with a plasticky mattress protector that made beds less comfortable to sleep in.
- TV set up very difficult to get working - there should be home specific instructions for this.
- Surprised that there was not any form of welcome pack, not even dishwasher tablets. On the other hand, there were some useful things and condiments that may have been left by previous guests.
- Deck area was lovely to use, but the floor was very dirty and furniture not to same standard as inside of house.
- ice maker in freezer incredibly slow - not sure if there's a fault.
And just as a warning, there is no washing machine/dryer and no air conditioning.
Thank you for your review! We will work on addressing your concerns and hope to see you again soon!
Beautiful Home and Location
Our family spent a week at the wonderfully relaxing Faria Beach house. The house is spotless and impeccably maintained to the highest levels. There are plenty of large windows that bathe one in natural light, the sea air, and the relaxing sound of surf 24/7. We often had breakfast and dinner on the deck or at the dinner table just looking at the sea. It’s a delight to cook here with the modern kitchen with granite counter tops, and a large gas BBQ outside on the deck. There are three ample sized bedrooms with comfortable beds and linens. There is cable TV (that includes the Dodgers channel—a rare thing in LA!) Sand toys, umbrellas, chairs for the beach are all here. The beach is just steps from your front door and it’s all yours—oftentimes, we were the only folks on the beach, which is great for surfing, tide pooling, sunbathing, and beachcombing. We never saw any litter on the beach, which is unique for SoCal. For the few times that we left the beach house, there are great restaurants nearby in Ventura and we were just a few miles south of Montecito. It was a blessing to spend the week in Krista’s and Karie’s family beach home.
We had such a great time. The home was clean and equipped with everything we needed. Would definitely go back.
We are so happy you had a great time! Hope to see your family again soon !
Our stay far exceeded our expectations! The place provided great accommodations for all of us.
The location was perfect and was a great time for our whole family!
Like a second home
Great place for the price. Unusual for a beach house; extremely clean, no musky ordor, all the appliances and furniture are impeccible. All the info to use the house and beach were clear.
Only, suggestion is for the use of a washer/dryer for longer stays. We'd all go back.
So happy you had a great time! We are working on making the washer / dryer accessible! Hope to see you all soon
Beautiful, Clean, Airy, and an Awesome Location
I booked this home with 2 girlfriends for a girl's weekend and we were very pleased with the home. It is up-to-date, light, airy, very clean, and the beds were comfortable We particularly enjoyed spending our mornings having coffee on the deck while looking out at the ocean and listening to the waves break. The location was perfect for visiting Santa Barbara and Ventura has a cute downtown where we found yummy Thai food. Also, the owner was very quick to reply to any questions I had. I highly recommend this property. It is lovely and the pictures do not do it justice.
Thank you so much. We are happy you had a great time!
