About Cecilia

Family owned, we love our beach house and love sharing it with travelers from all over the world.

When submitting a stay request please be accurate with the number of nights you would like and the number of people in your party. Please tell me a bit about your group and your stay.

Cecilia purchased this house in 2010

Why Cecilia chose Central Coast California

Our home at Faria Beach has the best location for surfing, SUP, boogie boarding, tide pooling, kayaking or just relaxing and enjoying the view. We frequently see seals, sea lion, dolphins, sea birds and an occasional whale.

The house is nicely appointed and comfortable for your quiet vacation.

What makes this house unique

Located in the prime area of Faria Point located right between Ventura and Carpinteria. Take the day and go to Santa Barbara, the Santa Ynez wine country, Ojai or Los Angeles. Or just stay put and enjoy the beach, tennis or relax in the hot tub overlooking the ocean.

Review #1505934 "Incredible Family Surf Vacation"

The first thing we thought when we pulled into the gate was...WOW! The grounds were immaculate, the gardens beautiful, and the 3 car garage and large parking area were more than enough. Upon walking in the front door all you see is OCEAN! I've stayed in a lot of beach homes, this one is as close as you can get. My wife, newborn, and I stayed for 2 weeks and wish we could've stayed longer. The living, dining, and kitchen all flow into one another and are completely open. The kitchen is recently updated with a great commercial grade oven and range. The fireplace in the living room was so wonderful at night, creating a dreamy ambiance. We stayed in the upstairs master bedroom, mainly because I wanted to open my eyes in the morning and have waves be the first thing I see. It was truly wonderful. The sound of the surf lulled us and our baby to sleep each night, and the gentle light of dawn woke us each morning. No clocks and no schedule for 2 weeks!!! I surfed about 3 times a day right in front of the house, or would take the seven minute beach walk down to Mondos, a great longboard wave. The wave in front of the house was usually empty, we did have a crowd of 4 one day! In the winter the wave can get truly epic, with rides a few hundred yards long. The advantage of staying this close was being able to surf as soon as conditions were good. One afternoon in particular the wind died suddenly, the tide came up and there were perfect A-frames right in front of the house. I was in the water within 30 seconds! Because of it's perfect surf location this house is also listed on Wavecation. There is a wonderful hot tub on the deck. We had a problem with it heating at one point but the owner sent out a service man the next day and came out herself to check on it. My wife loved the fact that there was full size washer and dryer in the garage so she could wash baby clothes. My parents and another couple joined us for a few days and everyone LOVED the property. It is such a relaxing place. If you're into night life or being in the center of all the action, this is NOT the place for you. If you like sunning on the deck, surfing, taking family walks at low-tide or reading away the afternoon and then cooking dinner in a beautiful kitchen, then this place may be for you.

Family Birthday

  • 5 of 5

I loved it! This is an awesome place to vacation. I loved waking up, and going to sleep to the sound of the ocean. It is an adventure that I will never forget. The house is cozy, comfortable, and well maintained. I am so happy to have had to opportunity to enjoy this lovely beachhouse with my family. This is a vacation spot for the entire family. It's conveniently located close to shopping too.

Princess P. (Guest for 60th Masquerade Bday Party)

  • 5 of 5

This place was truly a beachfront paradise!!!!!!!!!! You wake up each morning to the soothing sounds of the ocean each morning along with the beautiful sights of dolphins jumping in and out of the water alongside the waves, and as the sun arises and the temperature gets warmer later in the day you can catch a few seals swim up to the coast and lay out on the rocks. The owner Cicilia made me feel so welcome and at home during my stay which was for my bestfriends aunts 60th Masquerade Party, which turned out lovely. I was there for 5 days and truly did not want to leave. The water was too cold for me to get in but the awesome hottub made up for it! Theres so much you can, paddleboard, kayak etc or just lay out and enjoy the view, sights and sounds. I had not a care in the world during my stay, I felt so relaxed! So if you are looking for a beachfront paradise getaway this is the place to be!

Hard to Leave...

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to celebrate my milestone birthday. My family and I loved it. Everything was perfect, great view, comfortable and relaxing throughout. We stayed about one week, and didn't want to leave. We're hoping to do it again sometime, it was well worth it. The finishing touch was being able to watch the Moon Eclipse around midnight from the hot tub.

Fun Week

We had a great one week stay, while celebrating our son and daughter-in-law's wedding in Limoneira! The kitchen is wonderful and the deck with ocean view... is amazing! The home is clean and the owner is gracious.

A beach house with all the amenities!!

  • 5 of 5

Just thinking about the great time we had. The gentle crashing sound of the waves right at your doorstep, actually just six steps down to the beach!

Fresh breezes, clean air, outstanding kitchen for the gourmet chef or everyday cook!

This IS a fully equipped house.

Hope to be back again soon.

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

This home was exactly as advertised. A real dream location on the beach. I didn't think of looking at email for 3 days. The kitchen was well stocked, the views from the bedrooms upstairs and the dining room area are unbeatable. The deck and hot tub added to our enjoyment. Miles of beach to walk on at low tide. Highly recommended.
