We had a dream to live on the ocean and this home is it! One avid surfer and one avid 'lounger' so this home was just perfect for us. We are Southern transplants living in California and enjoy this home as much as we can. It's our quiet escape and how we recharge. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.
Stephanie & Mark purchased this house in 2011
It's just over an hour from our home so a very easy drive. It still feels like we're disconnecting enough to allow us to wind down. The location is fantastic since we spend time in Santa Barbara, Carpinteria and Ventura. Faria Beach is one of the most beautiful places and we fell in love with it when we rented our first house for a weekend away.
Our home sits on one of California's best surf breaks. Exceptional for surfing, paddle boarding, kayaking and swimming. The beach area changes during the year and can be beautiful sand or gorgeous rocks with sea anemones ... it is so varied. With views of the Channel Islands we can't beat the sunsets.
We spent 5 days with our adult children at this wonderful beach home on Faria Beach. The house is warm and inviting and the kitchen is fully stocked for ease of meal preparation. There is plenty of comfortable seating and bedding . Games for all age levels abound! We took advantage of the nice weather and enjoyed the beach, beginning surfing and used the tennis courts twice! Love the location and accessibility and great sleeping and relaxation too! Excellent accommodations and very clean.
This place is so beautiful and clean. Stephanie has being so great at dealing with this stay.. I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to get away. It had everything you could ask for and some. Check this place out if you ever decide you want a beach house.
Great house & wonderful relaxing week. The house was better than pictured with every possible amenity. Thanks Stephanie for being so gracious & providing wonderful toys for us to play with. Quiet & private location. Very comfortable. Can't wait to go back!
What a great place to have my children and their families join me for a lovely vacation. The house was just like being at your home with all the conveniences of a 5 star hotel. Hope to do it again soon.
We had a great relaxing week here. The house is in a lovely location - very private and with everything that we could possibly need. Our children had the cabana and loved being so close to the sea. The private beach is a bonus as my pet hate is an overcrowded beach and it was always really quiet. We saw dolphins swimming by most days and loved watching the pelicans. The view from the master bedroom is wonderful - I really miss it! The owner, Stephanie, was always really helpful and genuinely cared that we should have a good time. Would love to go back and thoroughly recommend this beach house.
Stephanie was incredible to deal with before and during our stay. Our family with adult and married kids and their 2 - 2yr olds gathered in this ideal location from 2 states for some family time. The house was perfectly laid out for our 3 families. We, the grandparents, took the cabana which gave us some privacy and a quiet place for naps. The pack-n-play that was at the house worked great for one of the kids. The kitchen is better equipped than my kitchen at home! We enjoyed the hot tub and the deck for watching the dolphins and surfers. There was a big storm one of the days and we loved watching the high surf crash against the bulkhead. The little boys liked the play ground and having a safe place to run around outside the house. Great location with Ventura just a hop on the freeway to the grocery store. We visited the zoo, a new trampoline park, the guys did a Segway tour, and the girls a spa day. Perfect all the way around!
We are 'inside the gate' of private Faria Beach so safe for kids to ride bikes and spend time on the playground. A lush, grassy area is perfect for picnics or sports and the tennis court is beautiful. The Rincon Highway outside the gate is perfect for a quiet morning run or nice bike ride.
