Property description

(City of Ventura Permit#2157)

The Starfish Cottage is the perfect place to relax for your next getaway. Located in the Pierpont neighborhood of Ventura which is just west of the 101 freeway between San Buenaventura State Park and The Marina. This ideal location offers the best of Ventura.

Bike trails will take you along ocean paths to Santa Barbara or east to Ojai. Restaurants are within walking distance from The Starfish. The Marina has the best bikini store along with well established eateries.

Head across the freeway to old downtown Ventura for a great shopping or dining experience. Check out the resell shops, wine bars, and just all the wonderful locally owned businesses.

The cottage kitchen has everything you need for cooking. Our large outdoor patio is comfortable and roomy. Our home is situated on the north side - or sunny side of the lanes- so you will get nice morning breezes and afternoon sun.

Step outside the front door for a less then a 2 minute walk to the beach. All Pierpont lanes end at the State Beach.

We have recently purchased a brand new king size bed for the master bedroom. The second bedroom has a set of super comfortable twin beds. A queen size aerobed is available for use as well. All linens are 400 count and we have lots of down comforters, throws and blankets.

An outdoor shower is available to wash sand off yourself and your suits before going inside. A small amount of sand can clog the pipes and drains.

The kitchen is completely stocked with dishes (indoor and out) for your needs. We have a toaster, crock pot, Vitamix, tea kettle, Mocca Master Coffee Pot, spices, condiments and anything in the fridge is free to use.

All beach items are stored in The Tuff Shed behind the east front gate. Bikes can be stored behind the locked gate. The Shed is full of beach towels, chairs, umbrellas and other beach items that you will not have to pack.

Please contact us anytime with any questions. We love to talk Ventura!

Welcome to the Starfish Cottage in the area known as Pierpont. Located just off the 101 Freeway, Pierpont is centrally located to local attractions, Santa Barbara, central coast wineries and the charm of downtown Ventura.

The Pierpont neighborhood is a great spot to just relax. Our rental is less than a 2 min walk to the sand. Once your toes are climbing the dune and selecting your perfect sun filled spot, relaxation will wash over you!

The Starfish Cottage is equipped with Comcast cable and internet, a house phone for local 805 calls, a Bose system, games, books, liquid bath soaps, hand soaps, toilet paper, paper towels and other amenities to make your stay totally carefree.

Our kitchen has everything you need to cook a gourmet dinner including a spice drawer. There is a Von's Market and an Organic Lassen's Market close by.

Before your arrival we would be happy to suggest or arrange any activities for you and your party.

Our home can accomodate up to 6 guests comfortably.

We have a Tuff Shed stocked with beach chairs, beach towels, beach umbrellas, tables, umbrella, 2 boogie boards (the nice ones), beach games and beach blanket and rug. There is space to store bikes behind the locked gates.

Our pretty patio with fire pit and BBQ grill offer great starry nights to just hang outside day or night. Both are propane. We do not use wood burning firepits.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: The Pierpont area has so much to offer at such a fabulous location. Biking, running, walking and just hanging at the beach seem too good to be true. You will find yourself wanting to come back year after year to this truly wonderful town. We have a personal connection to the area as our grandkids attend Pierpont School and get to skateboard, scooter or bike to school every day. Having family living just up the street adds to our pleasure of owning in Pierpont. We love opening our home to our guests so they can fall in love with the area just like we did. There is something magical about going out your front door and having sand under your feet in less than 2 minutes. Whether you are having coffee in the morning or wine while watching the sunset, your stress will just float away.

Why the Owner Chose Pierpont Bay, Ventura, CA, USA:
We feel so fortunate to have found one of the original cottages from the 1950's. The history of the area fascinated us. The Keys area which is adjacent to Pierpont used to be a small airport until the 60's. Pierpont was actually all dunes in the 50's just like the ones you will see at the beach. Developers decided to flatten the dunes and build the small cottages, but Mother Nature didn't like that idea. To this day the winds rebuild the dunes which you will get to experience for yourself exploring the area. Walk or bike to the pier and check out Surfer's Point, Seaside Park (where the State Fair is in August) and the Amtrak station. Ventura's downtown area has restaurants, resale shops, wine bars, music and much more. There is a farmer's market downtown every Saturday and one at the mall on Wednesdays. The Ventura Mall has lots of shops including Macy's, Trader Joes, Bev Mo and much more. Over on the east side of the 101 off Telephone road is Barnes & Noble, Pier One, Kohl's and a strip of eateries. On the west side of the 101 is Target, BBB, Winco Grocery, local restaurants and a great wine bar. Just off Main close to downtown is Peet's Cafe for the best breakfast in Ventura. Check out our Ventura binder for more details.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our property is modeled after what we have personally enjoyed when we rent vacation homes. The thought "I wish we thought of that or we should do that" has been incorportated into our vacation home. We have taken all the personal touches others have put in place for our comfort and brought them into our home. We hope you find "The Starfish Cottage" so special you don't want to leave. Please make sure you sign our guest book and add any suggestions, or criticisms so we can put your suggestions in place for your next visit.
