About Susan Lee

We have lived in our home for the past 14 years, since our first born was 2 months old! We enjoy running on the beach, surfing, paddle boarding, kayaking in the Keys waterways, riding our bikes or walking on the path to the Ventura Pier and nearby Marina Park while our children enjoy taking a ride on the Pirate ship zipline (Marina Park). We enjoy designing and adding upgrades to our home as a couple w/ my husbands profession being a general contractor and myself enjoying decorating and design.

Susan Lee purchased this house in 2000

Why Susan Lee chose Ventura

We chose to live in the Ventura Keys/ Pierpont Bay and specifically this home on Bayshore because my husband surfs and he can walk w/ his boards to surf at 'school house' down New Bedford Court. There is also 'Little Beach' which is just a 1/2 a block away, where you can enjoy the play ground equipment with the kids & picnic or bring your kayak and launch it from the beach.

What makes this house unique

My husband is a contractor and we have enjoyed being creative with the architecture and design of the home. Most of our friends & visitors comment on the arched doorways throughout the house, upgraded kitchen and bathrooms, the front enclosed courtyard with the outdoor shower - with hot water (!), and private back yard which is perfect for entertaining & fun for the kids. Also all the surrounding homes are also one story homes which adds for a sense of privacy.

Ventura paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful stay at this beautiful home in Ventura, just a couple of blocks from the ocean. The location is ideal, near shops , freeway, beach, harbor, and downtown Ventura. The house was beautifully decorated and comfortable to accommodate our family of all ages. We appreciated the watersports equipment and bicycles. I would highly recommend to choose this home as your next getaway to beautiful Ventura---located about 50 miles north of L.A.

Best vacation ever

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay in Ventura. The home is just as the picture describe. Amazing location. Very clean. We loved the outside shower to wash off after the beach. Just like being at home on vacation. We used the bikes and beach toys they have available at the home. Can't wait to come back again.

Perfect house for home base to explore local area

  • 5 of 5

Even though we live in CT now, my parents grew up in the little town of Los Alamos about an hour north of Ventura so I am very familiar with the area. This is the perfect family beach house getaway. We have stayed in 3 different HomeAway homes in Ventura and this one is far and away the best. There are bikes to ride, boogie boards, surfboards to use, and the beach is only few minutes walk. The house was immaculately designed and comfortable for our family of 4. The grocery store Vons and Starbucks are only one block away which is very convenient. We made several day trips to Santa Barbara which has an awesome zoo for kids and our favorite Mexican restaurant, Los Agaves. We also went to our favorite beach, Refugio State Beach, about 45 minutes north. The house has everything you need including washer/dryer, BBQ, plenty of cooking supplies, etc...

The beds and furniture are very comfortable and the nights were very quiet for sleeping.

Neighbors were also friendly. Owners were very responsive and provided all necessary information we needed

for fantastic vacation.

Ideal Family Getaway in Ventura

  • 5 of 5

We rented this well-appointed, cozy beach home over New Years week with several friends (ages 27-32) and our 1 year-old son. Everyone agreed that of the dozens of places we looked at for the week, we landed in the perfect spot. I highly recommend it.

Rent this place and you'll feel like a local. The home is nestled in a lovely neighborhood with an easy walk to the beach, restaurants and parks. At the beach we felt like neighbors, not tourists. The home is well-appointed and feels "lived in" (books, games, spices, etc) -- not sterile like some vacation home rentals.

The hosts communicated well and were very accommodating - they went out of their way to make sure we had what we needed for our infant (a crib, a high chair) and even lined up some babysitting options for us if we wanted it. Prompt in returning our security deposit, too.

The accommodations for children (including the playground, bunk beds, children's books and games) make this home incredibly well suited for family travel, but our friends without kids loved it just as much.

I don't know the area that well (traveled in from Ohio), but the neighborhood seemed perfect to us and also got the thumbs up from one of our guests who is a lifelong resident of the area. He felt this was a great spot for a vacation rental.

To offer a balanced opinion: the only challenges we had were 1) moderating the temperature in the house -- couldn't quite get the thermostat to keep a comfortable warmth on the cool nights (goldilocks syndrome - too hot or too cold) and 2) the dishwashing machine actually made the dishes dirtier at times (I think maybe a water pressure or hard water issue? They seemed to be aware of it and provided a pre-wash rinse of some sort). But these were very minor inconveniences in an otherwise great stay.

I'm in the midst of booking another trip (to another location right now) and I know how exhausting it can be to sort through VRBO listings. If this one is in your price range, you're interested in Ventura/Ventura Keys area, and a cozy craftsman home (family friendly) a couple of blocks off of the beach sounds good to you, don't drive yourself crazy searching for more options, just go with this one. I think you'll be glad you did.

Owner's Response: Thank you Nick for your amazing review of our home. We appreciate you taking the time to be specific as we know this is helpful to future renters. Since your comment about the thermostat we have now included instructions in our welcome sheet about turning the reverse fans on overhead in the master suite and living space when the heat is on, due to those rooms having high ceilings. We have found this to even out the heating in the home. For the dishwasher, YES we have hard water in Ventura. We now will do hard water treatments periodically with special cleaners to solve the hard water spots on the glasses, plus we will continue to leave a mild form of the cleanser to place in the dishwasher for each guest. So happy you enjoyed your stay and we welcome you and your friends back to our home when/ if you land in Ventura again. Its always nice to have visitors from out of state enjoy our home and our beautiful city of Ventura. Kindly, The Lee Family

A Perfect Place for a California Christmas

  • 5 of 5

My family came from Canada for their first California Christmas and because our home in Ventura was too small, we had to find somewhere else for them to stay, but wanted a house rather than a hotel as it seemed more personal. This house did not disappoint! The location is perfect - one block from the beach, close to grocery stores and local eateries. The house itself is in excellent shape, well taken care of and feels so private - and was VERY quiet. My family had everything they needed to enjoy a Christmas away from home and I was pleased that everyone was comfortable and happy. Both the owners and property manager were very responsive and helpful. Would definitely recommend!

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure having you and your beautiful family stay in our family beach home over Christmas this year. Our property manager shared the sweet story of entering the home with your father playing Christmas carols on the piano for the family and everyone singing. Such a sweet memories as you shared I'm sure your family will never forget. Thank you for taking such good care of our home and we welcome you to stay again. Let us know in advance and we will be sure to have the piano tuned for your dad. Kindly, The Lee Family

Love Ventura

Our family had the best time in Ventura and at this beautiful home. It was an ideal location.....walking distance to the grocery store, restaurants and Starbucks. My cousin lived nearby so the bikes came in handy. The owners were extremely helpful. I would definitely rent this place again. Thank you!!
