Our two long stays at the "Coastal Cottage"

Our two long stays at the "Coastal Cottage"

We enjoyed our long stay at the "California Coastal Cottage" in 2011 so much, that we came back in 2012 for an even longer stay. Our second stay was even better than the first, because the kitchen and other aspects of the cottage were considerably updated. The kitchen has a new refrigerator, stove, dishwasher, countertops, and cabinets. In addition, the TV is new, and central heating has replaced the space heaters.

The amenities are as described. Of course, the best amenity is the proximity to the ocean, which is just seven or eight cottages away. At night you can hear the roar of the waves as they crash on the beach.

The layout of the cottage is the best we have seen for a two-bedroom cottage in the Pierpont Beach area. The kitchen, dining area, and living room are in an open floor plan, which gives a feeling of spaciousness. They look out via a wall of glass on the brick back yard, which has patio furniture and plenty of sun..

The owners have kept the cottage very clean and in good repair. They have provided good service the few times that it was needed. The cottage is within walking distance of a number of restaurants and a shopping area. Historic downtown Ventura is less than 10 minutes away by car. Our enjoyable stays in the cottage have persuaded us to sign up for yet a third visit.

Rest and Relaxation at the Beach

The coastal cottage was exactly as described. In fact, my sister had visited the cottage before I made my reservation - before the renovations. When she came to visit me she was shocked by all the positive changes. Basically the kitchen and bathroom are brand new and so is all the furniture - except in the guest room.

It is a peaceful and quiet location with nice, unobtrusive neighbors. A walking beach is only 7 houses away. I know the area very well as my sister lives only about 40 miles south so I wasn't there for sightseeing.

The fish and chips restaurant at the Pierpont beach is fabulous (try the onion rings - some of the best I've ever had) and the burgers at Dukes are delicious.

My hobby is estate sales and flea markets. I would highly recommend the free Swap Meet at the Fairgrounds every Wednesday. Found lots of fun, inespensive treasures. The Farmers Market at the Mall has wonderful vendors for delicious bakery and grocery items.

My only disappointment was that the cleaners did an awful job. Luckily I wasn't having any company for a few weeks.

The owners are very helpful and always accessible. They also have a local property manager should you need immediate assistance - I didn't.

I would definitely recommend this cottage and hope to return sometime next year. You will be very pleased if you rent this cottage.

Owner's Response: Sutzi - we are very glad you had a great stay at the cottage and enjoyed Ventura. Again I am so sorry about the floor and the area behind the oven, also the sponge the cleaning crew left in the sink. I spoke with the cleaning company and apprarently they had allowed time for a standard cleaning not realizing we had been doing major renovations for the month. They should have contacted us and we would have scheduled more time. Normally everything is in top shape when our guest arrive.

Relaxing in Venture

  • 4 of 5

  • Stayed: Jul 2011
The information provided in the listing for this property was accurate, so there were no surprises when we arrived. The owner provided all the necessary information to arrive at the cottage and access the cottage, so we had no difficulties-this was important after arriving from a long flight from Europe. The cottage is a quick hop to a wonderful, unspoilt beach that is dog friendly. Clearly the weather in Ventura is not exactly the typical southern california hot, but this is ideal if travelling with young kids as we did. There are bikes available in the house to use which is great as there is a long bike path that follows the coastline, where there are a few kiddie parks along the way. There is a good surfing spot a few miles up the road and there are rental places near-by so its easy to indulge in that very SoCal surfing experience. The house is not 'modern', but it is very comfortable and quaint and has all the amenities available to settle quickly..all kitchen equipment, laudry equipment and linens..even beach towels. Nothing is 'new', but everything works. We were very happy with our stay as we wanted to have access now and again to Santa barbara and LA, but with young kids the priority was the beach and calm...we definately got this. The street is calm...not a party zone..There are a few local restaurants within walking distance which are great, family owned places...definately recommend Joanafina's mexican cantina...Traffic to and from LA was heavy so this should be borne in mind for day trips.
