This great family house is back on the rental market after being renovated by new owners. The home was professionally decorated like a model beach home! Potterybarn furnishings and decor. We hope you are among the first to enjoy our beautiful California beach home.

Located in the Faria Beach Community on the sands of your own private beachfront. The community has a tennis court, children's playground and grassy park. There is your own private staircase right down to the sand. The beach right in front of our home is usually totally empty making it feel like your own private beach. Great for families with small children. It's easy to keep an eye on them when you have the beach to yourselves! The backyard has a large patio area with a fire pit to roast smores on chilly nights, an outdoor shower with hot water, table and chairs and the kids favorite-a sand box with sand toys sure to provide hours of entertainment for little ones.

LOCATION: Conveniently located near Santa Barbara, Carpenteria and Ventura, just off the 101 freeway. We are 65 miles north of LA, about 20 minutes south of Santa Barbara and just 5 minutes from downtown Ventura and Carpenteria. A bike path right out front takes you on an ocean front ride into downtown Ventura in just 15 minutes for a fantastic breakfast. Visit downtown Ventura for a wide selection of dining-you won't be disappointed with this charming street and great variety of restaurants.

This is a beautiful, California Bungalow style two-story home located off the famous Pacific Coast Hwy on Faria Beach. It is classic California beach living at its best. Enjoy stunning ocean views from the huge deck, family room, kitchen, and upstairs MASTER SUITE. The ocean in the morning is captivating, it is hard to do anything other than drink your coffee on the master suite balcony or large backyard deck and watch the crashing waves! You will also spot dolphins and seals play in the morning waves right in front of you, with the view of the Channel Islands, and gorgeous sunsets right in your own backyard. There is so much to do in the immediate surrounding area yet you will want to be home every evening to watch the sun go down while waves splash just feet away. It is incredible! The backyard has a spacious patio with a bbq, outdoor shower, dining table for all your al' fresco meals and a very large deck perfect for relaxing and laying out. Also on the deck, ocean front, is a hot tub! Community has tennis courts and grassy children's play set.

FAMILY ROOM: The family room has a full size sofa, 2 oversized chairs that provides plenty of seating to enjoy each others company, watch a movie and relax. A large sliding glass door provides a spacious flow between the indoors and outdoors. The family room is equipped with a large flat screen television with surround sound, direct tv/blu-ray/netflix and WiFi.

KITCHEN: The kitchen is located right next to the family room. Equipped with beautiful new custom cabinetry, granite countertops and new appliances. The kitchen is fully stocked for all your cooking wants and needs. Our country kitchen style lends perfectly to the large dining table in the center perfect for family meals or hours of card games. For anyone not thrilled about doing dishes, especially on vacation-you may just love it here with a large picture window right in front of the kitchen sink-even dishes are no longer a chore with a view like that to distract you!

BEDROOMS & BATH: Off the main family room and kitchen are the 3 downstairs bedrooms. The first bedroom a cozy retreat for one couple or a group of kids is equipped with a twin over full bunkbed with a twin pull out below. You can sleep between 3 comfortably-or 4 packed in. The second room downstairs has a queen size bed. Sleeps 2. The third bedroom downstairs has a queen size bed. Sleeps 2. All bedrooms have new flat screen televisions, luxurious duvets and fine linens on the beds to provide the ultimate in comfort.

There is a large bathroom downstairs off the living room with a spacious shower, travertine floors and a vanity. There is plenty of space to use as a changing room.

A washer and dryer are available in the 3rd bedroom- concealed behind doors.

MASTER SUITE: The master suite upstairs is expansive and charming. With an entire wall of windows looking out to a view up and down the coast in both directions, the channel islands straight ahead and the surf right below, the view is stunning! A large brand new sliding door opens to the spacious deck. Enjoy the sound of crashing waves right out your bedroom slider.

With a new king bed, wall-mounted flat screen and a great sitting area including a sofa bed (with a queen size pull-out) and occasional chairs, in front of a large ocean view window- it is a perfect spot for relaxing or watching the sunrise or sunset. If you have to bring your work with you...there is a large desk perfect for your laptop so you can get down to business... which won't be so bad with a view of the entire ocean in front of you as you work! There is also an en suite bathroom in the MASTER SUITE with a shower. This bedroom is very large and can easily hold a family of four who prefer to keep there small children close by. Sleeps 2-4

SURF & SAND: This home has one of California's finest surf breaks right in your backyard. Mondo's point is just to the right and Rincon Beach near by. When the tide is out you can walk up and down the coast searching for shells, exploring the tides for hours! Paddle boarding, kayaking, body boarding and swimming. If you love to fish, there is fantastic fishing right off the backyard deck!

The sea wall has a new cable fence that provides safety for little ones yet does not block the ocean view.

If you are looking for the perfect vacation, look no further! We hope you come to stay soon! If the dates you want are not available inquire about our new beach home available for rental summer 2015 and now booking 2016!

About Marcie Hoch

Owning a home on the beach has always been a dream of ours. We couldn't be more thrilled that this came true this year when we found this most incredible home. We are thrilled to share it with our family, friends and vacation renters. We look forward to years of memories here and hope you will too.

Marcie Hoch purchased this house in 2012

Why Marcie Hoch chose Ventura

Though we have always lived in Southern California, we love to visit Santa Barbara and the surrounding areas. We've always been fascinated with this area. We had driven by these beach homes our whole lives and never dreamed that one day we would have one of our own. Having traveled far and wide we have to say this is truly one of the most relaxing destinations in the world! There is so much to explore in the surrounding area-the possibilities are endless.

What makes this house unique

Loving a beautifully decorated home, we went all out making this the most beautiful home you will find on this stretch of beach. New and modern is nice but can't beat the charm of a California beach bungalow. We had a lot of fun preserving as much vintage charm from this almost 100 year old home. Though, modern conveniences were a must! Yet what everyone can't get over once they enter the front gate and walk down the path to the backyard-the view! It is incredible. Being this close to the ocean has the most peaceful and relaxing effect-we can't get enough of it. We think you will agree!

Visiting from Norway

  • 5 of 5

All og us agree that it was a wonderful stay. The house was beautiful and the place was awesome. A place we would love to rent one more time and we want to recomand it to our friends in Norway. Nothing to complain about. A special nice experiance was it to be in the upstairs bedroom and have the view over the ocean. If the veranda upstairs where bigger we would have stayed there all the time������!!

On the sand, beautiful beach, and lovely home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for one week in March and had beautiful weather. The beach was down some easy to navigate steps. The hot tub was essential for relaxing after hours of playing in the sand and ocean. The home was nicely decorated and comfortable. I expected it to be larger but it is about 1400 sq feet. I'm sure I overlooked this fact when I booked. But there are four bedrooms and two bathrooms. The bedrooms downstairs are rather small (my kids didn't mind) and the master upstairs was a dream come true. The upstairs bathroom was rather tight and I would have expected a remodeled bathroom. Although it was adequate, they could have made the shower much nicer (tile would have been ideal) instead of prefab plastic.

I loved the fact that every room and the living room had a flat screen tv with expanded cable (I'm talking like HBO, Cinemax, Showtime, etc).

I did not expect the train or the traffic on PCH to be so loud. That's not the problem of the home but rather the location. I stayed in the Faria Beach gated community and the traffic noise as well as the train were not as loud. The train doesn't run every night but it did wake us up a couple times. I think this problem can be overlooked because the view and the sound of the ocean are worth it.

Overall, I think this home was ideal for our family (we have 5 kids ages 6-14) and we loved the fact that it was on the beach and had easy access to the water. It was small, yet the space is used efficiently. The hot tub was really the frosting on the cake.

We stayed at this gorgeous home in February to celebrate an anniversary.

  • 5 of 5

Everyone agreed that it was one of the best we've ever seen. It had beautiful sunsets, beautiful beach, beautiful house from the décor to the coffee pot(s).

My son-in-law (surfer) thought the outdoor shower, with hot water!, was a gift from God.;))

It's a well-planned set up, and we lacked for nothing.

Sweet, sweet memories

  • 5 of 5

Our stay the first week of the new year could not have been better. We had perfect weather so the younger ones were in wet suits and surfing every day. The tide pools provided treasures every afternoon and the hot tub seemed to be in constant use. We had a pretty full house, but it worked out fine with the little ones in the bunk beds. The large master bedroom and bath upstairs is wonderful with ocean view and large deck.

I think we made use of all the amenities. One night s'mores at the fire pit and everyday the little ones in the sand box playing.

We grilled a number of lunches and dinners and found all appliances worked wonderfully. The kitchen/dining area worked well for us with the little ones on the bench and easy serving from the kitchen.

We will be back. Wonderful memories.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a few days in June with 3 teenagers. Accommodation was perfect, large bedroom with great views and balcony upstairs for us and the kids in a room each downstairs. Very relaxing lounge/diner/kitchen large room with access to the patio area. Great for surfing (direct access to the beach an free boards), sun, hot tub (very relaxing after a swim). Would thoroughly recommend and will return. Book it.

My only regret is not staying longer!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd annual vacation at this rental because- its fabulous! After everything was so new and wonderfully stylish & chic last year, I wondered if it would be maintained throughout a year of visitors and was so pleased to find everything as delightful as when it was brand new, in fact there were even upgrades and new items! This is not your run of the mill beach cottage, its like a clean luxury boutique hotel with every little amenity you could imagine! We stayed with a zillion kids and adults yet never felt cramped due to the well arranged house, and deck with sand pit for the little kiddies. I love that there were so many toys and boogie boards there, we never had to leave! You can't put a price on complete serenity and knowing these owners truly want every guest to have a luxury experience!
