About the property

Two Bedroom, One Bathroom House Near The Beach And Downtown Ventura


Purple Moon Seabreeze Cottage is a beautiful historic Victorian bungalow located three blocks from downtown Ventura. We offer a queen-sized bed, king-sized bed and air beds are available upon request. This is a full sized home complete with washer/dryer, refrigerator, dishwasher, stove, televisions in both bedrooms and living room, back deck with barbecue in the back yard and a front porch area for sitting and admiring the view of the mountains and quaint architecture of Ventura. We have quick access to the beach. It is about a four block walk and there is a bridge to get you there faster, if you prefer. Downtown has lots of shopping, restaurants and a movie theater which shows ten movies. It is all within walking distance. We have an old-fashioned claw foot bathtub that comes with a shower head on it. We have a nice front and back yard for you to enjoy. Our front porch is an exceptional place to be during the parades. We have quite the view, too. Our home faces the beautiful mountains and homes across the street, which are really pretty to look at. Ventura is a lovely coastal city and the vibe is very laid back and the home is very comfortable. We have a piano for you to play. There are board games and yard games that are provided. We have internet and cable too!!

About Dorothea

I have owned this home since 1994 and I love it! It is the most beautiful place in Ventura to me. I love to sing and I am a business owner too. I have another place in Nashville, TN that I love too that I rent out as a vacation rental business. Purple Moon River House. The very best part of this vacation rental business is making people happy and that is what I like to do.

Dorothea purchased this house in 1994

Why Dorothea chose Central Coast California

No words. Just beautiful. I won't talk about our friendly ghost either. Pure JOY!

What makes this house unique

You can literally get anywhere downtown from here. You can walk to the ocean and downtown and you can also go up to the Cross and see the view. Just a great location!

Birthday weekend with the girls

  • 5 of 5

Once again, the Purple Moon Sea Breeze Cottage was our first choice! There were 3 of us most nights and a 4th girlfriend joined us for 1 night, so there was plenty of room! The shower in the laundry room was a smart addition ! The beds are the best I've slept in and I found Dorothea to be very easy to deal with! It was a sad day when we packed up and went back to reality! We will be back!

Best week ever!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd stay at the cottage, Dorothea has made her place so inviting we had a hard time leaving it! We just wanted to hang out and visit. Our favorite spot was the rocking chairs on the porch! One day we ventured out and found the Botanical Gardens trail. Beautiful view!My 2 girlfriends and I also love staying here because of the close proximity to restaurants and shopping. It's a pleasure to deal with Dorothea, we love her!

Great as always!

  • 4 of 5

I love the purple house! This was the second time we have stayed there. There was a bit of confusion over checkout time, but Dorthea was understanding about it in the end so everything worked out perfectly! Will definitely stay there again!

Owner's Response: My suggestion is if you want to stay past check out time, then book and pay for that day. We have check-ins that arrive at 4:00 so that requires time to clean the cottage.

Dorothea did such a great job with the place. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We had every comfort we needed along with the piano which was great fun. Cozy, peaceful and walking distance to all the shops and eateries. Can't wait to come back!!!

Perfect purple cottage; Wonderful host!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this home on behalf of my friends, whom I joined briefly on the last day (mostly to check out the house!). The owner, Dorthea, was incredibly kind and patient as we worked through my convoluted needs...guests from overseas, arriving at different times, etc, etc, all at the last minute! So, first, Dorthea was amazing. Then, the house was perfect! I cannot imagine a better location in Ventura...a very short stroll to all of the great restaurants and shops. The house itself is spacious, has a great front yard and porch, and is very well cared for in every way. The back yard is nicely landscaped with many new plantings when we were there, and there is a nice picnic table to enjoy a glass of wine or breakfast. My friends definitely enjoyed their stay there, and I have it in my "favorites" to rent myself next time I'm headed to the area!
