We , Tom and Kathleen Koenig, have lived in Venura since 1991. We always dreamed of living at the beach and purchased this house in 1996. We rebuilt it 10 years ago. We LOVE Ventura and especially our area of Pierpont. We are close enough to LA so that you can get to all it has to offer in a few short hours yet far enough away to not have to deal with the big city hassels. Tom was an LA City Firefighter for 31 years. Kathleen is a professional artist. We are both semi-retired but keep busy with 5 grown kids and 10 grandkids. We have been married for more than 46 years and still have a GREAT time with eachother. we love the outdoors, traveling and entertaining family and friends. And our home and the area we live in means we have guests often. There is nothing like walking down to the beach in the morning and seeing the islands or dolphins surfing the waves. There is something magical about looking at the ocean and then turning around toward our mountains and seeing snow covering the backcountry. It is a slice of paradise ! We will do everything we can to make your vacation so memorable that you will be wanting to come back again and again.
Owner/Property Manager purchased this house in 1996
Our property and the town of Ventura are in an ideal location. Again it is close to all of the entertainment options Southern California has to offer but we are nestled in a spot that it unique. Most of the beach communities are really crowded. The beaches, restauraunts etc. are packed with tourists to the point where it can make it hard to relax and enjoy. Not here in Ventura. We have all that the other beach towns have without the huge crowds! For Shoppers, our downtown has great women's boutiques, our mall has all the well known stores ( and it is just 5 miles from us) like Macys, H&M, Forever 21, Express, JC Pennys, Target. Camarillo Outlets is world famous. There are tours that come from around the world specifically to shop there. Getting there is a 15 minute drive. We have 2 Trader Joes and Whole Foods grocery store will be opening in the next few months. We have an amazing Farmers Market every Saturday in the downtown with our local farmers bringing their produce, flowers, cheeses meats and more to market.
We built our home to be comfortable and cozy. We want our guests to feel at home from the moment they walk in. We designed it to be light and open with lots of windows. When we were planning the backyard we wanted complete privacy and we have accomplished that. You could spend your entire visit here never getting in your car because everything you need is within walking distance.
We felt at home right away. The house was comfortable and clean, perfect for our small family that traveled from different parts of California to spend time together. Once there, we didn't even need our cars. Whatever we needed or wanted was within walking distance - the ocean and a family-friendly beach were a block away. Stores and restaurants were were close-by. We'll be back.
This property was the perfect little retreat for a relaxing beach vacation. It is a very short walk (less than 5 minutes) to the beach, the grocery store, the liquor store, a quaint local coffee shop (or a Starbucks if you choose) and a couple of local restaurants. It was convenient for a morning walk on the beach or an evening drink while watching the sunset.
The house was clean with all the necessary aminities for cooking inside or on the grill. The back patio area was great for reading a book or sitting by the fire at night. The beds were very comfortable. The owner and her property manager were always responsive both before and during our stay when we had any questions.
Ventura is a laid-back beach town with a quaint downtown area and a nice marina. It is a short and scenic drive up to Santa Barbara which is also worth visiting.
My husband and I had a winter get-away from Philadelphia, during which we took care of our infant grandson while our daughter attended a conference at a near-by hotel. We were as comfortable as if we had been at home, except more so given the contrast in Weather! Kathleen and Tom have created a beautiful, confortable and welcoming space. We wll definitely stay there again if we return to the area.
We stayed for 4 days at this beautiful home. It's located in a quiet, charming beach community about a block and half from the beach and equally far from the grocery store. It's a short drive into downtown Ventura. The house is spacious and has a high end kitchen along with really comfortable furnishings. There is a great backyard for relaxing and eating, and even a firepit with firewood provided. Plus the owners and property managers were incredibly helpful in providing local recommendations. It was the perfect house for our family.
We just spent a week at this lovely beach cottage in Ventura and loved every minute of it! The house is wonderful! The location is fabulous! The beach is just down the street - we watched sunsets and the boys played in the surf. It is a very short walk to the quaint downtown, which offers good food choices and coffee at Kay's was a daily treat! We were able to walk Von's for groceries, everything you need to cook an amazing meal in the chef's kitchen and they have a terrific wine shop in the store. I have to add that Jen, the local property manager, was helpful and so friendly! The trolley stop is close by and you can take it to downtown Ventura and to the harbor - both are not to be missed! :)
My friends and I came in from Colorado and my cousins took the Amtrak from LA! The cottage was the most centrally located option as we walked around the corner to the beach and five minutes to downtown shops, restaurants, coffee, and a grocery store!
We traveled to run the Mountain to Beach marathon and explore beautiful southern California beauty ☺️ We were able to cook out favorite pre-race meal in the chef kitchen and enjoy the M and M's Kathleen and Tom left on the counter! The back patio was the perfect escape for drinks, a
Fire and grilling out! This cottage could accommodate any age or need!
I would stay here again in a heart beat 😄
Thank you Tom and Kathleen
Ventura is a bit of paradise. it is a stunning beach town that sits on the central coast. Our home is 1 block off the beach and best of all our beach is uncrowed and very private. We have a 18 mile bike path that will take you along the water front and up to Ojai. We have world class wineries less than an hour away. Our marina ( 2 miles away) boasts restaurants, fishing excursions, kayak adventures that will take you to the Channel Islands just 11 miles off the coast. Our downtown , a five minute car or taxi ride,has everything you could want...restaurants, theaters, boutiques, bars and nightlife. We host a Beers and Blues Festival in May that is awesome. We have walking tours for the 'Foodies' and Wine tours for the wine enthuasists. Our village ( known by the locals as Seward Village) is less than a 5 minute walk from our house. There you will find a great pub and grille, an italian bistro with awesome food and drink, Dukes a local favorite that serves up burgers, beer and lots of fish , and a sushi spot. For the coffee and sweet tooth people ther is a coffee house with in house made desserts and a frozen yogurt shop. A Starbucks and grocery store is just a block up from the Village.
