Couldn't be more pleased with this rental. Some friends and I came up to Ventura for Mountains2Beach marathon weekend and decided to rent a house because we did not know at the time how many we would have and wanted something more personal and relaxing than multiple hotel rooms. Was a little concerned about the size of the house from the photos, but it was perfect! We were only planning to have four adults, but had two join us at the last minute, and the house was sized just right! The outdoor space is a great amenity to have and is so private, despite taller buildings on either side, due to the lush landscaping.
The location of the house was great! Fourth house from the beach but, as a friend noted, it's even closer than that because the lots are so narrow. You can easily walk to the restaurants and grocery a few blocks away. If you don't mind going a mile or two, walking to the village areas either on the road or beach was also easy. If you don't want to walk, the bikes were a great feature to use! The beach itself is wonderful. Quiet and very laid back. Perfect for families as well as a group of young people like ourselves. Great boogie boarding waves and lots of wildlife.
Because we were planning on doing most of our dining at home, the well-appointed kitchen was a great feature. We barbecued and also used the oven and stove a lot. We were able to find everything we needed at the house and only had to bring food!
Really could not recommend this home more highly. My only complaint was that we had to leave and say goodbye to our perfect weekend!
