Overview

About the property

Recentlly Constructed Custom Home Located Directly On The Ocean At Faria Beach

This two bedroom, two bath home is as aesthetically pleasing as it is comfortable, with stunning views of the coastline through a wall of glass doors that open directly onto the deck where the ocean is at your feet. Twelve foot high curved ceilings create an open and airy feeling throughout the house that lifts the spirits.

The state of the art kitchen is fully equipped with upscale appliances, including two dishwashers, two refrigerators, professional range and convection microwave. The enormous granite bar is perfect for socializing around the kitchen if you desire. The delightful banquette dining area with 180 degree views of the coastline provides seating for 8 or more.

The spacious master bedroom has a comfortable king size bed and professionally designed lighting that provides a romantic ambiance. The deep oversized soaking tub in the master bathroom fills from the ceiling and invites you to light the candles and pamper yourself.

We are located in the gated section of Faria Beach with a private tennis court and children's playground a few feet away. PCH offers bike lanes for long rides along the coast. The charming town of Ventura is a few minutes away for shopping, dining and antiquing.

We have many regular guests who book us for the same weeks each year, so regrettably, availability is limited.

About DeLayne Harthorn

This property was originally acquired by my grandmother, Winifred McFadden as a getaway from the summer heat of their orange ranch in Bardsdale, California. It has been enjoyed by five generations of our family. The original cottage was rebuilt in 2007 and it is my great pleasure to share our beautiful home at wonderful Faria Beach with our guests.

DeLayne Harthorn purchased this house in 1938

What makes this house unique

Relax with a book in a deck chair while watching the dolphins, pelicans, sea lions and shorebirds. Depending on the tides, take a walk on the beach to search for beach glass or explore the tide pools. The ocean is in charge, and conditions can vary dramatically from sandy to rocky and from calm to tempestuous! Enjoy surfing or kayaking at renowned Pitas Point directly in front of the house or Mondos Cove to the south. Unwind in the soaking tub, then watch the sun set behind the Channel Islands while preparing gourmet meals in the state of the art kitchen.

Truely a home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was absolutely wonderful. Delanye has stocked this house with everything you could ever need. Candy was very friendly and helpful. This is a great place to stay. Our first hour there we saw dolphins and surfers. Next morning surfers, dolphins and a seal. There are a lot of wonderful resturants around. Ventura Harbor was a great place to visit. Downtown Ventura was also great. Lures resturant was outstanding. Santa Barbara is only 30 minutes away. But I can't say enough about the house. Great starting the morning having coffee on the deck watching the sunrise and having a glass of wine watching the sunset. Doesn't get any better then this. Would definitely stay again if I get back to the west coast. Thanks again Delayne for allowing us to stay at your house and Candy for your guideance.
