Ventura Short Term Vacation Permit 2104
We really enjoyed ourselves! The house is very roomy and clean. We greatly appreciate the abbundance of towels and the use of a washer and dryer. The kitchen is comfortable and well stocked. We cooked most of our meals and always found everything we needed. The bedrooms are nice and the beds comfortable. We also appreciate that the front door has a push-button combination istead of a key that would have to be carefully stowed during trips to the beach. A great bonus is that it is so close to the beach! We don't have to worry about the kids crossing a street to get there. We also like that the house is nestled in a neighborhood with no visible traffic or commerce, but is still close enough to anything you need. Within walking distance there are a few eateries and a supermarket. And within a short drive you have everything else, including Downtown Ventura and the Ventura County Fair! The only critique I have is that the house can get a bit warm in the summer. However, they have provided several fans and I found that if they are placed strategically it can make a big difference. The nights cool down nicely though, even after a warm day.
The owners respond very quickly to all inquiries and are easy to communicate with.
This is the second year we have stayed here and look forward to many more!
Spacious and well cared for home in walking distance to the beach. Open floor plan, allowing for plenty of space to relax together as a family indoors and out. Quiet neighborhood....peaceful retreat! Our family of six had a wonderful time together at the California Coastal Cottage. So many things to do and see in the area; a few excursions we enjoyed are: Santa Cruz Island for hiking and snorkeling, Santa Ines Mission and Solvang, tide pools at Rincon Point and a lot of beach time just steps from the rental. Going home very relaxed and refreshed.
This is my second year staying at this very comfortable and relaxing bungalow. I've traveled the world and this is still one of my favorite vacation spots. Thanks so much for the owners in making this a very cozy and homey situation. No stress!! Ahhhhhhhh!!!!!!!
We had the good fortune to find this place free just before Thanksgiving. What a wonderful time we had! Every day, we headed down the street to the beach and enjoyed the beautiful sunsets. It also within walking distance to a great burger place, a grocery store and tasty bakery.
The house itself was clean and incredibly cozy with a great layout. We really enjoyed the open floor plan and loved the huge back patio. The kitchen was amazing!!! I really loved the huge countertops!!!!
The owners, Jeff and Leslie, really made this a very simple process. They were very quick to answer our questions (no matter how silly) and really worked to make sure it was a nice stay. We will definitely be back!!
Great cottage. It was very clean and comfortable. Just steps from the best beach around for family fun without crowds. We had a great hike at Mugu State Park, and every restaurant we tried was delicious. The back patio of the cottage is perfect for small children and very private. I'm already looking forward to coming back.
Fabulous vacation ...super clean....the weather was beautiful...perfect for two adults and 2 older teen girls. Seconds to the sand....nice big kitchen...lots of books to read....the girls wished there were board games to play at night, but found other ways to entertain themselves. We would definitely stay here again.
