Overview

Ventura Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Loft + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3-4)

The 'Hummingbird Sunset' Cottage (dubbed by our guests) is a Storybook Property above the Heart of Downtown Ventura. Detached Guest house with private bath, den and kitchenette on property with owner's main house. Treehouse is also a separate structure and sleeps one.

Private lush flower garden with full mountain views and a peek-a-boo of the ocean with the Channel Islands on clear days, deer grazing at Grant park at sunrise on the hill. Just steps to Historic Main street and it's trendy shops and restaurants, night clubs and galleries to fresh produce at Farmer's market on Saturday mornings. Take the beach cruisers down miles of boardwalk past Surfer's Point, the Fairgrounds, several campgrounds, the longest pier in California to the Harbor and beyond. Hiking, Surfing, and nightlife are all walking distance. Ojai and Santa Barbara are quick drives away. The rooms are very small but charming, the accommodations are for people who want to explore what the area has to offer. Fire Pit, Fountain, Barbecue, Porch Swing, it is romantic and subtle for the perfect get-away. So close to what you wanna see but feels like the perfect jungle Hide-Away.

About Sandra

I am a business owner, a mom and a former art director in the film industry. I love Ventura and all it has to offer in the way of daytime adventure and nature, nightlife and art. Forbes magazine lists Ventura as one of the top four places to live in the U.S.! I agree. I have been surprised and pleased with the lovely guests we have had to enjoy the property and all Ventura has to offer..

Sandra purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Sandra chose Ventura

Just one hour North of Hollywood, one half hour South of Santa Barbara, and twenty minutes West of Ojai, we have the best of the ocean, the city and the mountains right here and a quick hop away. Pets are also welcome in the cottage. Securely fenced and ready to roam, the large garden and wild lower yard are, as recent guests described it, 'Dog Heaven'.

What makes this cottage unique

The treehouse is tiny and enchanting. Completely wired, WIFI friendly and heated, it is perfect for naps for adults or children to sleep in. Best view on the property of the green, untouched mountains to our North. Some guests have had to draw straws to determine who gets the treehouse!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for the oasis you provided here for us. The little touches, the secluded forested feel, the sound of the birds and fountain at sunrise - all contributed to the complete vacation we were seeking. The nap I took in the treehouse one afternoon will stay with me until next time we visit. So tranquil! Thank you, Sandra. We are already looking forward to next Fall here in beautiful, friendly Ventura at the cottage.

Good Value for Couples

  • 3 of 5

We just returned from a six night stay at Hummingbird Cottage. We were looking for a place in Ventura reasonably priced. It seemed to fit the criteria. The cottage is small but cozy, well kept and clean. It is walking distance to Main Street which is nice but on the same note - the traffic noise from the back side of the house can be loud at times - especially for light sleepers. Unfortunately the owner Sandra was not as readily available to us. She did explained she was busy and would be away for the weekend when we arrived. But we never received keys to cottage - we had to leave the door unlocked every day. We tend to travel light so we make sure to always book a place with Laundry Facilities. After several attempts to contact Sandra we were not able to arrange use of the Washer and Dryer (which are located in the main house). Regardless, we do think the cottage is a good choice for couples and people looking to be close to Main Street Ventura.

P.S. The Cookies and Strawberries were a hit with my daughter.

Hummingbird Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were here for three nights. It was incredibly relaxing and in a great location. Downtown Ventura was just down the road where there were great local restaurants and coffee shops. We honestly used the kitchen for breakfast only but Sandra made sure we knew that she would get u things from the store if we wanted. Already in the fridge was a bowl of amazingly fresh fruit, eggs, coffee and milk. We just decided to completely relax and go out to eat for most of our meals. The owner was very kind and offered help when she needed. I highly recommend this for a couple or three people. Great vacation!

Hummingbird Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 18 great nights at the Hummingbird Cottage. It's conveniently located less than a half mile from the heart of Ventura, so there wasn't a need to drive to have a meal or a Starbux.

The cottage is perfect for 2 people. The kitchen is a tad small but we were able to buy food at the local market and make several meals. The cottage doesn't have - and doesn't need - air conditioning. We left the windows open and snuggled each night in the bed. In the afternoon I'd sit in the shade next to the cottage to catch up on my reading. Very relaxing.

Sandra is a great hostess. Upon arrival we found fresh fruit in the frig and freshly homemade turnovers. During the stay Sandra stopped by to provide us with more fresh fruit - the strawberries were fantastic - and freshly baked cookies.

Convenient and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Very relaxing and convenient to town and the beach. We didn't use our car all weekend. Quiet at night. Mom,dad, 2yo, baby and dog all had plenty of room at night. Daughter loved the treehouse. We would definitely like to come back.

Sandra was wonderful! We were very comfortable and our dog loved the yard. My daughter and I stayed in the guest house and my son stayed in the tree house. It was cozy and perfect! We will definitely stay here again!

Wonderful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this lovely and charming cottage with our two small dogs. We had a wonderful time and wished we could have stayed a couple of more days. Our doggies loved the fenced yard and enjoyed exploring the garden. We highly recommend this wonderful cottage.
