Why Christy Weir chose Central Coast California

We fell in love with the beautiful view of the ocean, the custom tile, the convenient location near historic downtown and beaches, and the quiet neighborhood.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved staying in the cottage and visiting our daughter. Being able to walk to their house and anywhere else in town was great. Staying in the cottage was so much nicer than being in a hotel--love the outdoor spaces that greeted us each night as we came "home." We will definitely be back!

Ventura at its Best

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in the bungalow this year and it was as great as the first time. Very private and quiet hillside location and still close enough to every Ventura activity. The hosts were great and very accommodating. We are already planning our next trip to Ventura and will definitely stay here again.

A wonderful stay in Ventura

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at Christy's place in Ventura. Nice kitchen and a great grill that we enjoyed grilling out on. Super comfortable bed. Very gracious hosts who gave us some great ideas about fun things to do around town. Look forward to hopefully staying there again on our next trip to Ventura!

Clean with tasteful, casual decor. Well stocked sundries and kitchen gear. Needs a 2nd comfy chair.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Tim and Christy for opening your wonderful cottage! We enjoyed the privacy and tasteful, casual style of the space. It was very clean and exceptionally well stocked with sundries and kitchen gear. The only thing missing was a second comfortable chair or small loveseat. It was pretty warm while we were there and ceiling fans would have been welcome too. We used one of the portable fans found in the closet and that really helped.

Tim was friendly and gracious and offered us covers for our bicycles and even lent us a lock since we'd forgotten ours. If bringing bikes, be prepared to carry them up a very narrow set of stairs. The second night we took the risk of leaving ours in the truck bed on the street and they were fine. The cottage is located on a lovely, quiet street and we found everything as described on the website. We didn't meet Christy but she was quick to respond via email and communication was easy. I'd recommend the Sleepy Cat Inn.

Charming- the only flaw was we had to leave when our stay was over!

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I booked this last minute, and could not have been happier! The Response from Christy was quick, and the accommodations were just as shown- just lovely. The location is super convenient to downtown Ventura shopping and eating destinations, as well as locations further north along PCH. Loved it- Will definitely be back!
