About Cheri

The owners are the fifth generation of the family to enjoy this unique and beautiful beach. Their goal is to preserve this property for future generations to enjoy as there are no other properties like this in the world

Cheri purchased this house in 1912

Why Cheri chose Central Coast California

From 1906 to 1912, the owners Great Grandfather was managing the construction on a portion of the new “Rincon Highway” from Ventura to Santa Barbara. The family knew that this location was very special and arrangements were made with the Faria family to construct the first beach cottage on Faria beach. Up until that time, there was only rail service along the coast which began in 1887. From 1878 to 1912 the stagecoach ran inland over Casitas Pass. During the years of road construction, a unique phenomena was observed along this stretch of beach. When the entire coast line was fogged in, there was usually a sunny portion where the home currently exists. This is due to the valley just North of the property that allows a gentle breeze to push back the fog and let in the sun. The current home is the fourth family home to be built here over the last 100 years.

What makes this house unique

In addition to the weather phenomena cited above, Faria beach is a South facing beach. Most beaches in California face West or South-West. This house was designed to take full advantage of the location. Looking South, the property provides a beautiful view of Anacapa and Santa Cruz Islands. Aside from the view, the lens effect of shore curves the surf at an oblique angle creating one of the best right hand breaks on the coast. On a good day one can surf from the point to the cove. When surf legend Dick Dale, “King of the Surf Guitar” visited the property, he said, “This is one of the best surfing beaches in California.” The property has gentle sloping, wide stairs allowing for easy access to the beach for all ages.

We had the opportunity to experience this beautiful property first hand for my husband's birthday. The location is one of a kind, but the extra touches that Cheri provides make your stay exceptional. Not one detail has been overlooked. From the linens to the abundance of high quality cookware, this property is truly a gem. You will not be disappointed.

50th Anniversary Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

With 17 years of renting beach houses and 7.5 years selling beach houses, we could not have had a better beach house for our family to celebrate our 50 years of marriage and Father's Day. Everyone totally enjoyed this fantastically designed and appointed beach front home. The owners have looked at everyting a renter might need for the perfect vacation and provided it. Comfortable +++. I can't tell you how great this home is. We will be back many times!

Queen Anne Stitches

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stitching retreat at this fabulous beach home. Cheri has thought of everything to make your stay perfect. We loved the view, extra blankets, walks on the beach, and just sitting in front of the fire and taking in the awesome view. We will be making this a yearly event. There was 12 in our party and plenty of room. Thank you again Cheri for a wonderful time!

Fabulous Beach House, Immaculate and Great Owners

  • 5 of 5

I have rented on Faria Beach for years. This home exceeds all others in terms of style, ammenities, and frankly, just plain "class." Everything you could possibly want is there, from all the kitchen utensils, spices, serving dishes, table cloths, you name it. The house is tastefully furnished and feels like home as soon as you walk in the door. HIgh quality linens, towels, and appliances complete the package. All of this, coupled with a wonderful deck and patio, patio furniture, barbecue, wonderful views, quiet beach, and beach toys galore, make this a real winner!

The owners are wonderful hosts and ensured that everything was absolutely perfect. I have two VRBOs of my own. I was impressed. Thanks Glen and Cheri. See you next September for another two weeks.

Perfect Vacation Home on Faria Beach!

  • 5 of 5

I promise I am not related to the owners in any way, but wow, I really wish I was... We had a perfect vacation from the second we arrived to find a bottle of wine & welcome note; to the last morning cup of coffee on the beach. Of course, the location is unbeatable, but the house is really fantastic! The kitchen is perfectly set up so you can socialize while cooking and it's equipped to feed as many as you need (in our case; hordes of ravenous teens). The living room has an incredible view and flatscreen TV to enjoy watching Shark Week. The bedrooms sleep the multitudes tired from a hard day of relaxation and water recreation. And the Master bedroom! Ahhhhh! Double doors to your own balcony (I recommend leaving open at night for the breeze and the ocean sounds: HEAVEN), and THE most comfortable bed ever! The owner's have thought of everything - Pan for brownies - it's there! Blankets for evenings on the deck - check! They've got hospitality nailed right down to the extra wetsuits and surfboards. We never wanted to leave. So, dear owners if you're looking to adopt; you've got our number!!
