About the property

Please review our guest feedback (Traveler Reviews 70+, 5 Star reviews) at the top of the page. 2018 will be our 12th year renting the house as the owners. See the rates tab for the seasonal rates.

Entire house remodel completed at end of January 2014 that involved inside and outside work. New kitchen, new appliances, new bathrooms, new bedrooms, wood floors throughout, new furnishings, new outside, new garden, etc.

If you rent this house, you are renting from an owner who lived in it since the early 1970's (my parents built the house in 1972). Personalized service from booking, to arrival and on through your stay. We also live in Ventura.

1045 WATERBURY LANE, VENTURA, CALIFORNIA BEACH FRONT HOUSE - ON THE SAND!!! Waterbury Lane has one of the widest stretches of beaches in all of Pierpont.....great for the kiddies to run and play on. This house is located in the wonderful Pierpont beach community in the City of Ventura (60 miles north of Los Angeles/45 miles south of Santa Barbara).

A year round weekly rental (or monthly outside of summer), our beach house easily sleeps 10 and is a perfect getaway for families, or a group of friends and it would also make a great business retreat (wireless internet, big dining room table).

As a beach front home sitting on a prime beach, you'll enjoy the comfort and amazing views of the ocean and offshore Channel Islands which provide a background for spectacular sunsets and if you are lucky, jumping dolphin right outside the surf line. Relax on the deck or back patio (with gas fire pit), or curl on the couch along side our gas fireplace. With all the creature comforts of an exclusive resort, you may never want to leave our getaway on the beach.

Two full stories above the ground level garage, this home has 3.5 bedrooms and three baths, a family room, living room, large open concept dining room (table for 10), and full kitchen in approximately 2400 square feet of living in a very open floor plan with lots of windows to show off the ocean/island view.

About The Owner

This is our childhood home that our parents built in 1972 and we grew up in the house and completely remodeled it in 2006 and 2014. Rent from owners who know the property since 1972. We also live nearby and are happy to help make your stay the best it can be.


Biedebach and Berry Families

The Owner purchased this house in 1972

What makes this house unique

Enjoy the widest beach in the Pierpont area with our house. We cater to the family types, friends and business groups. The house has all the good stuff for the adults on down to the little kiddies. Walking or a short drive to everything great about Ventura. Bike path right near by, Ventura Pier about one mile away and you can see it from the house. Lots to do and see in Ventura.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi dears,

We enjoyed your lovely weather and beautiful sunsets the last few days...and the new remodel seems quite nice in many ways. The doors that open completely are a great asset! Beautiful to have the downstairs one open wide.

Love the kitchen, baths, etc.

And spent a good deal of time in the lovely back outdoor space. That's the first time we have done that. THAT is really, really nice.

Thanks, as always, for your hospitality.

Love the new refrig and stove! And I especially love the wooden bench and wooden table in the dining area. It has a large seating capacity and keeps the theme of minimalism (sp?) that is so welcome throughout the house. We found that the emphasis on simplicity is a great one. It's very calming and enjoyable.

We all spent a lively amount of time discussing all of the new touches, etc. decor, renovations, lighting... designing itself, in fact, with all of its many twists and turns, and being such a creative thing..and so on...and our overall consensus?

Fabulous Beach House Vacation ~ Fun for the whole family!

  • 5 of 5

This home was not just perfectly located (right on the sand), but perfectly appointed and extremely comfortable. Mike & Erica were exceptionally friendly and wonderful hosts. Our family stayed here for a week this summer and we could not have been happier. We loved having all the accordian doors open to experience the great ocean breeze and listen to the sound of the waves, both in the living room and the master bedroom! We also made great use of the the extra large dining table for all our family meals. Having a home right on the beach made our days relaxing in the sand, boogie boarding, taking walks along the coastline, searching for sea glass & rocks easy and effortless! We also walked to the pier for lunch, and to neighborhood restaurants for dinner and frozen yogurt! We really appreciated all the beach towels, toys, boogie boards and chairs provided. The home has a few outdoor seating areas for dining and relaxing, with an outdoor shower to rinse off all the sand, and a fire pit that we enjoyed for late night s'mores!

Thanks for an unforgettable summer get-a-way!

All we could hope for, AND MORE!

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely perfect for our girls retreat last February.

The house wasn't just a vacation rental, it was a home, with all the amenities you could ask for. The owners did not cheap out on linens, towels, kitchen supplies, anything. It was all top notch! Erica was a wonderful host and showed us around the place, including the "funkier" features like how to operate the fridge doors or the accordion porch doors!! What will they think of next!! At some point during our long weekend, we just had the windows/doors open and we just curled up like cats and napped in the California sun (we all came from cold winter places like Omaha, Chicago, Boulder and DC!!). The house comes stocked with everything you can want from beach toys to kitchen appliances.

She gave us some wonderful recommendations to local restaurants and made us feel at home. Ventura itself was also super cute with lots of restaurants, bars and shopping. Check out the Golden China Restaurant if you want to karaoke. We took the Pacific Surfliner to Santa Barbara and enjoyed our day wine tasting in the many wine bars. But really, we just parked ourselves at the beach and watched for dolphins and little sandpipers.

We look forward to visiting again.

Life changing

  • 5 of 5

Everything we needed and more for our small family to reunite for 5 days. Our kids freely ran out to the beach outside as we watched on from the deck of the wonderful living area. Great house and wonderful hosts.

Another Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

My family had a fabulous time at this beach house. Located on the beach with amazing views. The sunsets are beautiful. The house is spacious, clean and equipped with everything you need for a fun-filled stay. Easy walk to the pier to enjoy Beach House Tacos or to the grocery store. Beach chairs, boogie and sand toys for children are provided. This is our second time staying at the beach house and we look forward to returning. Erica and Mike are wonderful to work with.

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5

This was probably the most expensive house that we ever rented, and it still felt like a bargain. We instantly knew that we had chosen the right home when we opened the front door for the first time. Everything was clean, perfectly decorated and furnished and the views were more than impressive. Just something we normally only see in magazines.

The following days were something to remember forever. The walks across the beach in the morning to get fresh bakery items from the grocery store, the extended breakfast at the table outside. The nights with the sound of the waves (beds were super comfy), the fire pit in the back yard.... So many things to do... I wish we had booked more than 4 nights, but I`m sure we will come back again. Thanks Erica and Mike.
