About Alicia Stratton

Our family has owned this house for close to 30 years, and we have lived on Faria Beach for over 40 years. Our father wrote dozens of television and movie scripts in this house, including several original Hawaii-50 episodes. DVDs of these episodes are available for you to watch while you stay here, with you knowing you are watching them in the same room as they were written!

Alicia Stratton purchased this house in 1988

Incredible views, outstanding sounds of the ocean rising to high tide. Beautiful sun rises and sunsets. The bed in the back nearest the ocean was comfy, cozy with all the ocean air and the sounds of it crashing. We loved it! We slept so well.

We never went out for meals because we had the best view already. We brought meals back from Luna Grill 😋? Or beach house tacos.

When in Ventura or surrounding areas this is where we want to be.

We "old aunties" loved staying in this property. It was absolutely perfect for the two of us.

The property had a wonderful view of the ocean. Included were a lot of seating outside, a kayak, and play toys in the garage. We couldn't have asked for more.

Fantastic Stay !!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 3 wonderful nights in this cottage. The pictures posted here are accurate and we agree with all of the previous comments. Owners are a pleasure to deal with and this rental completely met/exceeded our expectations. We will not hesitate to rent this cottage from Alicia (and Hall) again in the future.
