West Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This ONE OF A KIND beach house is perfect for couples and small families with a desire to spend time on one of the best beaches that Southern California has to offer - Faria Beach - with Mondo's Beach which is famous for our surfing. A winning combination of location, quality and price.

Our Beach house is on the sand is known by locals as the new Malibu, but without the traffic, pollution or crowds! Enjoy the 2 mile sandy beach which is rare for the area, as many of our beaches are rocky and offer very little sand. We are also centrally located 65 miles north of Los Angeles, 20 minutes south of Santa Barbara, and 10 minutes from Ventura and Carpenteria. This location is ideal for enjoying the best that each of these world famous destinations has to offer.

In addition to location, our home is not a typical "cottage" beach house. It's a high quality constructed beach house decorated with an eye for detail and beach life.

The large master suite is an experience in and of itself as it has magnificent views of the ocean which can be enjoyed in our luxurious king size bed, along side a roaring romantic fireplace or on the seaside balcony. The master bath offers a large walk in shower for two and 2 sinks/vanities.

The second bedroom offers a queen bed with accompanying full bathroom. The first floor offers an open floor plan with kitchen and dining table and chairs that flow into the cozy living room.

The living room has a fireplace, high definition 42” TV with doors that open onto the large ocean front patio. There are windows that traverse from the kitchen to the living room providing wonderful ocean views and the symphony of waves. On this floor are also a small third bedroom with full bed and adjacent full bath. On this floor is also a washer and dryer.

The large ocean side deck has a Jacuzzi, table and chairs and two chaise lounges, with stairs that lead down from the seawall to the ocean/sand. Please see a picture of the stairs on the website. The drop from the top of the seawall to the sand ranges 10 to 15 feet. During high tide, and depending on the season, the water can splash against the seawall, which can make entry into the ocean from the stairs impossible. However, Mondo’s beach is several hundred yards to the north and it is sandy and accessible all year around.

The home also offers a single garage and driveway parking with easy access to Hwy 101 Santa Barbara, Carpentaria, Ventura or Los Angeles. The Beach House also has a roof top deck with stunning views.

Toast to the romance of the best of Southern California beach living on the large ocean patio with Jacuzzi, chaise lounges, table and chairs and gas grill. Complimentary champagne is awaiting your arrival. You will not find a comparable vacation rental for the price, especially on the sand!

Over the top on Faria!

  • 5 of 5

Melanie and Todds beach home is superb. We had the most marvelous week staying here on Faria Beach. I was hesitant to rent so far from Santa Barbara-(it really wasn't that far), but their home and this location was much better than we expected! The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed for dinners at night. They even had spices. The most amazing thing about this home is the tremendous deck oceanfront. Words wouldn't be enough to describe how amazing the sunsets were. Falling asleep to the waves was truly relaxing. There were many close places to grocery shop and Ventura was very close. We rented boogie boards and wet suits at Ventura Surf Shop-5 min drive, and had dinner in Ventura two nights. Everything was perfect and Melanie and Todd really prepared us for our stay, with tips on shopping and restaurants Etc. The beach house had beach towels, but we also brought our own. We loved it so much we plan to stay over the holidays. Cheers.

A Wonderful Retreat With Great Views and Close to Activities

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a long weekend and wanted a nice quiet place to relax and get away. The view was gorgeous and we spent most of the time lounging on the deck and soaking up the sun and cool ocean air. The home had everything we needed and we loved cooking in the kitchen in the evenings and enjoyed eating outside on the deck. We would make the short trip into Santa Barbara or Ventura during the day to shop, explore or eat, but nothing beat coming back to the beach. We would absolutely come back again! Such an amazing home - we would highly recommend it!

Can't get any closer to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a wedding in Santa barbara and stayed 5 days to make a family reunion/vacation out of it. The house was lovely. Well stocked, easy to find things and made the perfect setting for our occasion. The master bedroom is by far the best room in the house with an ocean view, on suite bathroom, walk in closet and private balcony. We spent a lot of time there and outside in the spacious deck. We loved it, and would recommend it, and stay here again if another occasion arises!

Superb experience at this beachside getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

Such a cozy vacation home for us and our family. We stayed at this beachfront home and all enjoyed our stay filled with beach play, dinners on the deck at sunset, and fun nights playing games in the living room (by the fireplace, which we can only imagine would be so cozy during the colder months! We stayed during the summer so we did not make use of this added bonus feature of the home)... very spacious unit with sweeping views of the ocean horizon from the living room, kitchen and 2nd-floor master bedroom - perfect for a couple looking for a romantic getaway or family excursion to Ventura's beautiful coastline... the property has a deck which we all made plenty use of in the mornings for breakfast, yoga or to sun bathe on (the property is furnished with deck recliners, couches and chairs). The deck has an staircase leading to the sand for easy access to the water, which we also thoroughly enjoyed. Although we are not surfers, apparently the beach is a well-known spot for surfers! Truly a perfect getaway for all in the family... lovely time, can't wait for our return!

Beautifully Maintained House!

  • 5 of 5

We vacationed at this beach house last week and were thoroughly impressed with how wonderfully maintained it is. The owners have gone above and beyond standard hospitality, by stocking the home with everything that a renter might need. This allowed us to relax and enjoy the sand, surf, and incredible views! I agree with other reviews that the living area is small, but I believe the size was accurately depicted in the photos. It didn't bother us at all, because the fantastic deck space became our outdoor living and dining room. I actually felt that the upstairs bedrooms were very generously sized, even bigger than they appear in the photos. There was plenty of beach for our children to play during low tide and the waves were perfect for boogie-boarding. Even high tide was fun, as we sat out on the deck and watched the waves crash against the sea wall. We spotted dolphins, seals and pelicans from the deck. We would highly recommend this beach house and we are already looking at dates to return!

Beautiful beyond words!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this beach house for a long weekend to surprise my Mom for her 60th birthday. We could not have had a better time or a more enjoyable experience! The house is very clean and perfect decorated for the beach. Gorgeous views from not only the deck, but the master bedroom and rooftop! We pretty much lived out on the deck the entire weekend (the only slightly negative comment I have is the size of the living/family room, but since the weather was so perfect, we didn't want to be inside anyway!) This house was perfect! We will definitely be back next year.
