This great family house is back on the rental market after being renovated by new owners. The home was professionally decorated like a model beach home! Potterybarn furnishings and decor. We hope you are among the first to enjoy our beautiful California beach home.

Located in the Faria Beach Community on the sands of your own private beachfront. The community has a tennis court, children's playground and grassy park. There is your own private staircase right down to the sand. The beach right in front of our home is usually totally empty making it feel like your own private beach. Great for families with small children. It's easy to keep an eye on them when you have the beach to yourselves! The backyard has a large patio area with a fire pit to roast smores on chilly nights, an outdoor shower with hot water, table and chairs and the kids favorite-a sand box with sand toys sure to provide hours of entertainment for little ones.

LOCATION: Conveniently located near Santa Barbara, Carpenteria and Ventura, just off the 101 freeway. We are 65 miles north of LA, about 20 minutes south of Santa Barbara and just 5 minutes from downtown Ventura and Carpenteria. A bike path right out front takes you on an ocean front ride into downtown Ventura in just 15 minutes for a fantastic breakfast. Visit downtown Ventura for a wide selection of dining-you won't be disappointed with this charming street and great variety of restaurants.

This is a beautiful, California Bungalow style two-story home located off the famous Pacific Coast Hwy on Faria Beach. It is classic California beach living at its best. Enjoy stunning ocean views from the huge deck, family room, kitchen, and upstairs MASTER SUITE. The ocean in the morning is captivating, it is hard to do anything other than drink your coffee on the master suite balcony or large backyard deck and watch the crashing waves! You will also spot dolphins and seals play in the morning waves right in front of you, with the view of the Channel Islands, and gorgeous sunsets right in your own backyard. There is so much to do in the immediate surrounding area yet you will want to be home every evening to watch the sun go down while waves splash just feet away. It is incredible! The backyard has a spacious patio with a bbq, outdoor shower, dining table for all your al' fresco meals and a very large deck perfect for relaxing and laying out. Also on the deck, ocean front, is a hot tub! Community has tennis courts and grassy children's play set.

FAMILY ROOM: The family room has a full size sofa, 2 oversized chairs that provides plenty of seating to enjoy each others company, watch a movie and relax. A large sliding glass door provides a spacious flow between the indoors and outdoors. The family room is equipped with a large flat screen television with surround sound, direct tv/blu-ray/netflix and WiFi.

KITCHEN: The kitchen is located right next to the family room. Equipped with beautiful new custom cabinetry, granite countertops and new appliances. The kitchen is fully stocked for all your cooking wants and needs. Our country kitchen style lends perfectly to the large dining table in the center perfect for family meals or hours of card games. For anyone not thrilled about doing dishes, especially on vacation-you may just love it here with a large picture window right in front of the kitchen sink-even dishes are no longer a chore with a view like that to distract you!

BEDROOMS & BATH: Off the main family room and kitchen are the 3 downstairs bedrooms. The first bedroom a cozy retreat for one couple or a group of kids is equipped with a twin over full bunkbed with a twin pull out below. You can sleep between 3 comfortably-or 4 packed in. The second room downstairs has a queen size bed. Sleeps 2. The third bedroom downstairs has a queen size bed. Sleeps 2. All bedrooms have new flat screen televisions, luxurious duvets and fine linens on the beds to provide the ultimate in comfort.

There is a large bathroom downstairs off the living room with a spacious shower, travertine floors and a vanity. There is plenty of space to use as a changing room.

A washer and dryer are available in the 3rd bedroom- concealed behind doors.

MASTER SUITE: The master suite upstairs is expansive and charming. With an entire wall of windows looking out to a view up and down the coast in both directions, the channel islands straight ahead and the surf right below, the view is stunning! A large brand new sliding door opens to the spacious deck. Enjoy the sound of crashing waves right out your bedroom slider.

With a new king bed, wall-mounted flat screen and a great sitting area including a sofa bed (with a queen size pull-out) and occasional chairs, in front of a large ocean view window- it is a perfect spot for relaxing or watching the sunrise or sunset. If you have to bring your work with you...there is a large desk perfect for your laptop so you can get down to business... which won't be so bad with a view of the entire ocean in front of you as you work! There is also an en suite bathroom in the MASTER SUITE with a shower. This bedroom is very large and can easily hold a family of four who prefer to keep there small children close by. Sleeps 2-4

SURF & SAND: This home has one of California's finest surf breaks right in your backyard. Mondo's point is just to the right and Rincon Beach near by. When the tide is out you can walk up and down the coast searching for shells, exploring the tides for hours! Paddle boarding, kayaking, body boarding and swimming. If you love to fish, there is fantastic fishing right off the backyard deck!

The sea wall has a new cable fence that provides safety for little ones yet does not block the ocean view.

About Marcie Hoch

Owning a home on the beach has always been a dream of ours. We couldn't be more thrilled that this came true this year when we found this most incredible home. We are thrilled to share it with our family, friends and vacation renters. We look forward to years of memories here and hope you will too.

Marcie Hoch purchased this house in 2012

Why Marcie Hoch chose Central Coast California

Though we have always lived in Southern California, we love to visit Santa Barbara and the surrounding areas. We've always been fascinated with this area. We had driven by these beach homes our whole lives and never dreamed that one day we would have one of our own. Having traveled far and wide we have to say this is truly one of the most relaxing destinations in the world! There is so much to explore in the surrounding area-the possibilities are endless.

What makes this house unique

Loving a beautifully decorated home, we went all out making this the most beautiful home you will find on this stretch of beach. New and modern is nice but can't beat the charm of a California beach bungalow. We had a lot of fun preserving as much vintage charm from this almost 100 year old home. Though, modern conveniences were a must! Yet what everyone can't get over once they enter the front gate and walk down the path to the backyard-the view! It is incredible. Being this close to the ocean has the most peaceful and relaxing effect-we can't get enough of it. We think you will agree!

gorgeous and well-appointed

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful house, very well designed, and very well equipped for a rental — possibly one of the best I’ve seen in terms of plates/glasses (even kids’ stuff!), coffee, dish detergent, towels, etc. The location is sweet - right on the water with great outdoor space with toys, seating, etc.

Minimal downsides. It’s on a fairly busy road, and there are lots of steps in the house and outside. That posed a challenge for the oldest among us.

Overall a great place and highly recommended!

Killer view from the Master Suite

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully decorated beach home. Waking up in the Master Suite to a sweeping view of the ocean was an experience I will never forget. Everyone in our party thought the beds were comfortable. We enjoyed our stay.

Great house, great location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our annual Sol Sister's Surf Camp Weekend, and we spent the weekend reconnecting, laughing, catching up, and yes -surfing. The weather was great, the house was great!

We enjoyed our stay at the beach house

  • 5 of 5

The property is well maintained, the decor is inviting, kitchen well equipped, the beds were comfortable, and the deck provided a great view of the ocean. We ate meals at the table on the deck and BBQd one day. The hot tub was most enjoyable evenings as well. We swam and walked on the beach everyday. Highly recommend this rental.

Our family had a blast here!

  • 5 of 5

Our family vacation was so fabulous here! The location is amazing!--ocean right off the sea wall and a huge hot tub on the deck just inside the sea wall! Three generations of our family--ages 72-2--enjoyed boogie boarding/long boarding every day, all except the baby. We just put the little ones on the boogie boards after the waves had broken, gave a little push, and they sailed into shore, coming up laughing! Delightful to watch! After a full day of playing in the water, taking walks and making sand castles on the beach, we all fit into the huge hot tub and had so much relaxing fun. There's a handy, warm, outdoor shower where we could wash off the beach sand. We broke into teams to take turns cooking dinners, often using the barbecue on the deck. The deck dining table is perfect for a group. The deck furniture made it so easy to enjoy the beautiful sunset and to watch the stars at night. We taught the children about the constellations! The deck is huge, so we could play beach ball toss and whiffle ball there, and the small children could even ride bicycles around the table. Beside the deck is a bonfire ring where we had lovely bonfires and roasted marshmallows for smores.

The king bedroom upstairs is luxurious, with a deck and awesome view of the ocean and the coast. The other bedrooms are modest but adequate. The bunk bed room worked well for a family of two parents and two young children. The inside dining table worked great for setting out the buffet, playing table games, and doing painting projects with the children.

North of the house about a mile is a play structure for the children and a tennis court for us older ones, which we enjoyed using. Most of us took bicycle rides all the way into Ventura to enjoy the promenade there. The grocery store and the Buenaventura Mission were handy to us on the north side of Ventura, about 4 1/2 miles away.

Our host Marcie made us feel welcome with chilled champagne when we arrived, and was responsive to our every request or question. On check-in day, we arrived early and had a great outdoor lunch at The Shoals Restaurant, right on the ocean and inside the Cliffhouse Hotel, just north of the vacation house; we recommend it!

We had a joy-filled, unforgettable week together and are so grateful for that!

Could be a great place to stay, but needs some tender loving care.

  • 3 of 5

This could be a great home and location. It needs some upkeep and a deep cleaning. The spa was very cloudy for the 1st two days. It was cleaned and I was told there was no chlorine in it. Please arrange for it to be cleaned when new guest arrives. The curtains are torn at the bottom and a panel is missing in the master bedroom. The mattresses are very dirty. There is only one kitchen towel. I had to plug something in and my hand got extremely dirty. The washer leaves the clothes too wet, hence taking forever to dry. The internet was very poor. Could be a great place to stay, sub needs some tender loving care.
