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.

Runners weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend @ the Dolphin House. It was clean, welcoming, great beds and beautiful views. We loved watching the surfers! We are calling our weekend the Ventura Half Marathon Mudslide Run as we were there for the "biggest storm in 20 years." The house was a wonderful place in the rain and sunshine-the hot tub overlooking the ocean was fantastic in all weather.

Our host was helpful for directions, places to eat and getting us anything we needed.

One note for light sleepers- reserve the master bedroom (Oceanside) or the bunk room so you won't hear the trains come through in the night:)

I hope we'll be back to Ventura and Dolphin house soon!

Fantastic Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week at the Dolphin House! It's not called the Dolphin House for no reason! We saw dolphins swimming by every single day, multiple times a day! This was my family's second time renting the Dolphin House, and you can't beat the view, location, and conveniences the house has to offer. My kids loved the "kid" room, with the bunk beds. There is nothing like waking up to such beautiful oceans views every morning. We enjoyed being able to access the beach directly from the deck - made it very easy to take our evening walks during low tide each night. We were able to go into town for lunch with some friends who were camping near by, and Main Street Ventura is only minutes away. We would definitely recommend this property to others, and we will be back again.

Perfect Vacation Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome and relaxing time at the Dolphin House at Faria Beach! This house is comfy cozy, clean, a perfect family environment, with a an incredible view of the Ventura County coastline. My husband and I have stressful jobs, and once you arrive and walk out on the deck to enjoy the beautiful ocean view, you immediately begin to relax and leave the stress behind. Relaxing in the jacuzzi and watching the sunrise and sunset is spectacular! The beds are super comfy, Wifi, cable TV, BBQ, and all the amenities of home. We highly recommend this rental home to all families, and hope to make this an annual vacation spot.
