The surfing is this area is from beginner to intermediate.

We enjoyed the house very much!!!

  • 4 of 5

We were fortunate to take advantage of a cancellation. Bruce helped us with all the last minute arrangements and my family and I were able to have a great time. We loved the beautifully landscaped back yard and the outdoor shower. The walk to the beach is very short and the beach is lovely. My children enjoyed surfing right there and all of us appreciated the spacious beach. The house has some outdated amenities. I was glad to see that because it encouraged our family to spend time enjoying each other, spending time in the back yard and the beach. We did not have anyone on a wheelchair this time but I think it could easily be used to get in, get around and out of the house. We had a blessed time and we hope God help us stay there one more time. Thanks again Bruce.

Peaceful beach retreat - walking distance to restaurants and market

  • 5 of 5

We recently enjoyed a week long stay at this wonderful beach cottage and left wanting more. The yard and pond were lovely and tranquil, so much so we had to keep reminding ourselves that the beach was just down the road. The beach was conveniently located at the end of the street and all we had to do was bring our boogie boards. On that note, the semi private outdoor shower with hot and cold water was a nice touch after a day at the beach. The cottage itself had a very open and comfortable layout. The bedrooms had plenty of storage for our things and the beds were comfortable. We enjoyed walking to the local restaurants for dinner and the yogurt shop just a few blacks away. There's a lot to do in the area... our Son attended a surf camp for a couple of days at Mondos Beach (10 minutes away), and we had a great day trip to Santa Barbara.

The owners were nice and great to work with; we're looking forward to booking again!

Rare Find

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed for two weeks in July. What a fabulous getaway! Just close enough to the beach, in a quaint neighborhood that time forgot. My children loved the yard with its tropical landscaping and pond. Quiet evenings. Quick walks to the beach before breakfast. Outings to downtown Ventura. Would definitely recommend a stay hare! My dog Scout gives this place Four Paws as well!

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you like the garden. It is a comfortable space and we often take it for granted when we are there because we are always headed to the beach. We like the coffee shop in the morning, too, just 3 short blocks away. Thanks for the great review and Come Again!

Family with 4 kids from Arizona enjoyed it!

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 6 (4 kids ages 16 to 2) stayed here for 2 weeks this past summer and we really enjoyed it. It's close to the beach, and the kids woud walk there by themselves, since there are no roads to cross. The outside shower was definitely a plus as was the really peaceful backyard. We were able to do several day trips to our favorite destinations and always come back to "our" beds. We would love to come back!

Loving Shangri-La!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have enjoyed this rental every summer for the last 4yrs...we love it! It's perfect for us ~ 3 bedrooms, light and airy, and the backyard is beautifully landscaped (love the outdoor shower and the koi pond). The beach is a quick jaunt down the street, and there's a shopping center about the same distance in the other direction...perfection! We highly recommend Shangri-La!!!

Great place to relax and enjoy the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this Beach Cottage for the last two summers. It is well maintained and it is located in a quiet neighborhood close to the beach. We love to ride our bikes from the cottage to downtown Ventura as well as there is a great bike path along the beach. The back yard is our favorite location at the beach cottage and we spend many mornings and evenings enjoying the weather and the garden. The cottage is fully equipped and cozy and perfect for family time together.
