Guestbook comments from the owner


This was our 4th winter at John’s beach bungalow. Home away from home. John is a very attentive host, though not intrusive. The cottage is homey, very clean, and has everything you need for a nice vacation. The location can’t be beat, down the lane from the beach, a few blocks from Marina Park, and a half mile walk to restaurants, grocery store, Starbuck’s. Ventura is a charming beach town, downtown is only a few miles away. I highly recommend this rental.

Great little beach cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We had a really great week here. The 3 bedrooms are spacious and can easily sleep 5, and the sofa bed can accommodate a couple more if necessary. When we weren't on the beach, we really enjoyed hanging out on the front patio. Great time!

Lovely time in a great beach cottage

  • 4 of 5

The best thing about this vacation house is the location. It’s literally steps from the beach - about a one minute walk. The water is perfect here: very cool but shallow which makes it perfect for swimming. The house is cozy and down-to-earth in style and has mostly everything you need for your stay. There were a few items we didn’t find in the kitchen (coffee filters and napkins) but it was a quick walk to the grocery store to purchase them. We could have used more beach towels - so you may want to bring a couple of your own. The house is walking distance to groceries, and about 5 restaurants. We didn’t drive at all during our stay - which was so relaxing! The bottle of wine from our host John was a nice touch. I’d stay here again.

  • 5 of 5

We spent the 4th of July week at this great Ventura Beach cottage. The design, decor functionality , all the basics and more were there which made it so easy and comfortable to feel at home. John was a great host and provided extra touches to make this Property extra special.

Great beach cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This cute, well-appointed beach cottage was the perfect size for the four of us. A quick walk to the beach and close to the restaurants on Seaward. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again when we return to Ventura.

Great beach cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay for our Thanksgiving getaway. Loved the beach-themed decor.

The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable, with a lovely patio off one of the bedrooms. We also spent a lot of time on the spacious front patio (morning coffee and evenings). Beach towels, beach chairs, beach umbrella, and 2 bicycles were available to use (very convenient for us). This cottage is in a great location, within walking distance to the beach, Marina park, grocery store, and restaurants. My only complaint is not having cable t.v. (Netflix, Hulu, and other services were available, however). I would definitely stay here again!

Nice and cozy

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our vacation there a lot. The cottage has a very good location. Close to the Vons( Safeway) and what we love the most walking distance to the beach. Every morning we enjoyed our coffee on beautiful, very cozy front and back yard. The house is clean and has everything you need. Very quiet neighborhood. We will be back there for sure!
