  • A proper beach cottage, not a palace ... just my preference

    "Everything was great! While a few minor problems cropped up (eg, BBQ suffered from operator error), they were fixed promptly. The ocean is immediately beyond the seawall while the RR track is just behind the "guest house" After a few days I didn't notice RR noise (sad, as I love trains ... about 12 short, quiet passenger trains and 1-2 long freights/day). I had lots of guests who all loved the ambiance. Notable events ... the Rey fire caused 2pm "sunset" for a couple days ... many dolphins everyday (even spotted them surfing), not many brown pelicans this year ... saw some small (harmless) sand sharks at Sand Point (beyond the Castle) where Santa Monica Creek meets the ocean. Nice to have weekly cleaning and garden maintenance. Padaro Beach has been my go-to vacation for 50 years now! A few dogs on beach (retrievers) but not sure if OK with owner, so I did not hit check box. Disabilities OK for guest house but not main house, so mixed on whether to check the box. One could argue that OK for teenagers (volleyball, (mild, learning) surfing, paddleboards)"

  • Over the top on Faria!

    "Melanie and Todds beach home is superb. We had the most marvelous week staying here on Faria Beach. I was hesitant to rent so far from Santa Barbara-(it really wasn't that far), but their home and this location was much better than we expected! The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed for dinners at night. They even had spices. The most amazing thing about this home is the tremendous deck oceanfront. Words wouldn't be enough to describe how amazing the sunsets were. Falling asleep to the waves was truly relaxing. There were many close places to grocery shop and Ventura was very close. We rented boogie boards and wet suits at Ventura Surf Shop-5 min drive, and had dinner in Ventura two nights. Everything was perfect and Melanie and Todd really prepared us for our stay, with tips on shopping and restaurants Etc. The beach house had beach towels, but we also brought our own. We loved it so much we plan to stay over the holidays. Cheers."

  • Beautiful home

    "We were nervous about our first time trying HomeAway for our vacation. We are accustomed to hotels and have no problem camping outdoors, but this home just blew us away. It was extremely well equipped, the owners were helpful and have the home very well organized. Information and instructions for everything in the home available in a binder as well as neatly labeled areas and notes posted where needed. Wonderfully furnished, and yes, great shower. We rented this to explore the Big Sur area, which was great, but we love the added bonus of exploring Seaside and Monterey. Do not miss the Aquarium of Monterey Bay and all the restaurants and shops nearby. We are already discussing our next trip to the area to cover what we missed and will definitely be staying here."
