About Bruce Raph and Karen Yoon RAph

We are working professionals (landscape designer and Dentist) who love the beach area, I attended grammar school here and returned in 2002 to call Ventura home again. We take pride in our rental and assure you a quality product at a reasonable rate. We are surfers and world travelers who have stayed in many rentals and know the needs of travelers and vacationers. We lived in our Beach House for 6 years and decided to move back to our work location in Santa Barbara CA.

Bruce Raph and Karen Yoon RAph purchased this House in 2002

Why Bruce Raph and Karen Yoon RAph chose Pierpont Bay

Your surrounded by people that love the beach and surfing is down the lane. Quiet lane that ends in the sand, Easy walk for kids and pets. Beautiful area in a convenient location for walking, biking,surfing, exploring. Great neighborhood, new restaurants and boutiques within 3 blocks.

What makes this House unique

There's the beach just 14 houses down the lane. There's the little village area with coffee shop and restaurants just three short blocks away, bike paths to the pier and the park, and grocery shopping 5 blocks away. This is a great location even without a car!

                                                              A lovely little beach house. This is one of those places you hesitate to write about, because you don’t want too many people to find out. The house is a minute walk from the beach, in a quite neighborhood. Despite the proximity to neighbors, the whole property feels very private. The interior was very clean and we found everything we needed easily. I loved staying here and would definitely want to come back.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              Thank you so much for the positive response. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and that you also appreciated the cottage. We hope you return soon.

                                                              Bruce and Karen Raph

                                                              We enjoyed the house very much!!!

                                                              We were fortunate to take advantage of a cancellation. Bruce helped us with all the last minute arrangements and my family and I were able to have a great time. We loved the beautifully landscaped back yard and the outdoor shower. The walk to the beach is very short and the beach is lovely. My children enjoyed surfing right there and all of us appreciated the spacious beach. The house has some outdated amenities. I was glad to see that because it encouraged our family to spend time enjoying each other, spending time in the back yard and the beach. We did not have anyone on a wheelchair this time but I think it could easily be used to get in, get around and out of the house. We had a blessed time and we hope God help us stay there one more time. Thanks again Bruce.

                                                              Peaceful beach retreat - walking distance to restaurants and market

                                                              Robert & CynthiaSanta Clarita, CA

                                                              We recently enjoyed a week long stay at this wonderful beach cottage and left wanting more. The yard and pond were lovely and tranquil, so much so we had to keep reminding ourselves that the beach was just down the road. The beach was conveniently located at the end of the street and all we had to do was bring our boogie boards. On that note, the semi private outdoor shower with hot and cold water was a nice touch after a day at the beach. The cottage itself had a very open and comfortable layout. The bedrooms had plenty of storage for our things and the beds were comfortable. We enjoyed walking to the local restaurants for dinner and the yogurt shop just a few blacks away. There's a lot to do in the area... our Son attended a surf camp for a couple of days at Mondos Beach (10 minutes away), and we had a great day trip to Santa Barbara.

                                                              The owners were nice and great to work with; we're looking forward to booking again!

                                                              Beach bliss.

                                                              Just returned from staying at this lovely property, and I want to turn around and go right back. The photos and descriptions were accurate, but didn't quite portray the wonderful feeling you got as you walked into this beach house. It is clean, well maintained and cute. The house is fenced and gated all around which was great because we had small children. There are all the appliances you will need. There were 3 adults and 2 children, and we all fit perfectly. The pond added to the relaxation factor while lounging in the back yard. The outdoor shower was a must since the beach is just a hop, skip and...well, pretty much just a hop and skip. About a minute or 2 minute walk down the lane right to a great beach. Good restaurants within walking distance (2 or 3 blocks). The owners were gracious and helpful. I would definitely recommend this wonderful property to friends and family.

                                                              Great place to relax and enjoy the beach!

                                                              We have stayed at this Beach Cottage for the last two summers. It is well maintained and it is located in a quiet neighborhood close to the beach. We love to ride our bikes from the cottage to downtown Ventura as well as there is a great bike path along the beach. The back yard is our favorite location at the beach cottage and we spend many mornings and evenings enjoying the weather and the garden. The cottage is fully equipped and cozy and perfect for family time together.

                                                              My family and I stayed for two weeks in July. What a fabulous getaway! Just close enough to the beach, in a quaint neighborhood that time forgot. My children loved the yard with its tropical landscaping and pond. Quiet evenings. Quick walks to the beach before breakfast. Outings to downtown Ventura. Would definitely recommend a stay hare! My dog Scout gives this place Four Paws as well!

                                                              We are so glad that you like the garden. It is a comfortable space and we often take it for granted when we are there because we are always headed to the beach. We like the coffee shop in the morning, too, just 3 short blocks away. Thanks for the great review and Come Again!
