Dolphin House lives up to its name

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at the Dolphin House. We walked the beach every morning and were able to see the other houses but the dolphin house really stood out over the others because it had so much character. We all enjoyed the upper deck patio where we could sit and watch the dolphins go by. It was also a great area to just relax and read. The house's location was superb, right on the sand with crashing waves providing a very relaxing atmosphere. In fact, this was the most relaxing vacation we can ever remember. We were able to paddleboard, build sandcastles in front of the house, go tide pooling, and were close to Channel Islands National Park which allowed us to take the island boat out to Santa Cruz Island. We were also close to the Camarillo outlets for a shopping trip. This location had something for everyone. We had all the amenities we could ask for from wifi to cable television. We want to thank the Menzel family for sharing their home with us and we will come back!

Beauty at the Beach

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time both inside and outside of the dolphin house. True to it's name we saw many dolphins throughout our our stay and enjoyed watching them from almost every room in this beautiful beach house. Particularly enjoyed the outdoor shower for sandy children and the deck top spa for adults. The dolphin house has nice beach frontage and is close to wonderful tide pools if you catch it at the right time, which we did. This beach house is a must, but shoes are not required.

Dream getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The dolphin house is the perfect beach getaway. The beach has more sand than in years, the surf was fun, it was fairly cool while the rest of SoCal was roasting away, and the house itself is really charming. It also has a ton of frontage on the water, two bedrooms upstairs are right over the surf, along with the kitchen and common rooms. Beautiful indoor "outdoor" shower, and a new spa right over the water make this place hard to beat!

A private beach getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the dolphin house! It's the PERFECT family spot when we needed a little getaway.. We felt like we had our own private beach as it was such a secluded spot. The house was cozy & set up perfectly and came with all amenities, including a jacuzzi on deck! We loved our time on the beach. ❤️

Merely Perfection

  • 5 of 5

We love Ventura and the Faria Beach area. This recent stay was just another in a long string of perfection. Beautiful sunrises. Dolphins in the "backyard" most days. Private stairs down the to beach. Clean and well equipped house. Difficult to return home after being spoiled like this.

Our beach is located in an ideal location to visit Santa Barbara (30 min), Ojai (30 Min) and Ventura is only ten minutes away. Los Angeles (Universal Studios , Disneyland, Knottsberry Farm) are all within a couple hours.
