Awesome beach house!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this charming beach house! My family was able to have their own "alone time" in separate areas of the house and the use of both patios (front and back) were awesome! The fire pit at night was a great highlight! It made us all converse and put down our phones! On the downside, I had no idea the walk to the beach would be a little lengthy and have huge climbing steps up and down to the beach. And I only say this because I was traveling with my elderly mother. It was a bit of a struggle to and from the house, but it was still amazing for those travelers that were young and on the move! The Marina was a short bike ride away - so that was a plus for the kids! The house and our host gets 5 stars! John, the host, was at our every need when texted. We all loved our time and love Ventura! We hopefully will be back soon! THANK YOU JOHN! YOU and your house ROCK!

Accurate representation of the property

  • 5 of 5

No false advertising here! John, the property owner, has done a stellar job capturing exactly what this property is, a quaint beach cottage. It is precious! The neighbors are wonderful too! Most are dog owners and everyone was so friendly. The enclosed yard gave us piece of mind when our dogs wished to sun themselves out back. Morning and sunset walks on the beach followed by a fire in the fire pit in the backyard immediately became our routine for the week. The beach is steps from the house, and, it is a swimming beach, so, we rented wetsuits and boogie boards for our 13yo and 9yo. It was so, so convenient. This property was quiet at night too, so, we all slept well. Spring Break was a huge success! Thanks again John!! CHEERS to you!

Another great time at The Original Ventura Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves again at John's place. Everything was in order, clean, and welcoming. John continues to be one of the best hosts in the vacation rental business. The proximity to the ocean, downtown, the freeway, parks, farmer's markets, etc. couldn't be better. I highly recommend this cottage.

Great vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful cozy, "shabby chic" beach cottage, down the lane from the sand. John is a terrific host, with an almost instantaneous response to any of our questions or needs. We had a plumbing issue that he took care of in a very responsible fashion. The patios are beautiful and secure for small children and dogs. The kitchen is outfitted with a lots of supplies and the linens/towels were soft and plentiful. The location of the cottage is excellent: almost on the ocean and a nice walk or bike ride to 2 fabulous beachfront parks, a small restaurant/retail area, the grocery store, Starbuck's, etc. The marina is only a mile away and it's filled with shops, restaurants, boat rentals, and fresh fish to buy right from the fishermen. Downtown is only a a few miles away. There is a large mall just 2 miles away. The foothills are nearby as well.
