Our family rented this home for a week. We were looking for a nice property, right on the beach, for a relaxing vacation and this home was perfect. The owner is very nice, quick to respond, and easy going. For our active family, we were pleasantly surprised with all the beach equipment the owners provided for us: beach chairs, ocean kayaks, bogie boards, surf boards, wet suits, kites, paddle board, sand toys, etc. The home is right on Pierpont beach near Marina Park, with beautiful views of the ocean and sunsets. The kitchen was really nice; granite counter tops and ample dishes and cookware. There are two refrigerator/freezers, one upstairs and one downstairs and a washer and dryer. All bedding and towels were provided. The home has a nice courtyard with a hot tub, and an upstairs patio for dining with an oceanfront view. There are two heated outdoor showers to rinse off the sand and surf. There are two large screen TV's with DVD players and even a Wii entertainment system. The proximity of this home to Ventura Marina and Marina Park is nice too. We visited the Marina a few times to paddle board in the calm waters of the Marina, visit the Channel Islands National Park visitor center, rent jet skis (extremely fun), and dine at the Sea Food restaurants. However, we mostly just stayed at the beach house which has everything you need! The home lists for 6 occupants (three bedrooms) but has plenty of room and bedding for at least 10.
It can be a bit nerve-racking renting on VRBO since you never know what you'll get until you arrive but this home exceeded our expectations, just what we were looking for! Honestly, not much negative to say. We have no hesitation in recommending this property to anyone looking for a nice beach getaway.
