Overview

About the property

Large 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Oceanfront, 180 degree views and steps to beach

This is a rare opportunity to rent one of the most highly reviewed five star 2800 square foot modern home located directly on the ocean! This Ventura beach home is nestled securely behind gates in a private colony. Faria Beach is Ventura's best kept secret, just a pleasant drive south of Carpinteria and Santa Barbara… and this is one of the finest homes in the area!

Upon entering the front door, you will be greeted by a wall of sliding glass doors out to the deck and expansive ocean views. The living room boasts a large flat screen television, fireplace and inviting seating area, with adjacent dining space. Included in this open floor plan is a modern sectional couch, gourmet kitchen and casual dining area, all exposed to the glass doors and beautiful ocean. The high-end kitchen features designer appliances, including Viking ovens and microwave and a Sub-Zero refrigerator. All of this is open to a huge deck with beautiful patio furniture. It is a great home for family relaxing and entertaining.

One wing of the house offers two lovely bedrooms and 1 1/2 bathrooms, all with designer touches. On the home's other side is the breathtaking master suite, which is connected to the deck and ocean by an opening of sliding glass doors. This retreat features a huge room with king bed and fireplace, walk-in closet and a private office. You can even see the dazzling waves from the substantial shower or generous soaking tub.

Faria Beach in Ventura is a marine sanctuary with exposed tide pools, sand beaches, and some of the best marine environments along the California coast. The area is perfect for surfing, kayaking, snorkeling, boogie boarding or just to enjoy long walks on the beach, hunting for shells, rocks and sea glass. While this beach is known for dolphins feeding and riding waves on a daily bases, whales can even be spotted during their migration. The sunrises and sunsets are exceptional and the Channel Islands are visible offshore. With just steps to the sand, you will be able to explore one of California’s most unique and beautiful beaches.

Faria Beach in Ventura is a gated community that also offers a beautifully maintained private tennis court and child's playground just 50 yards from the home. Beyond the gates is a coastal bike path that takes you to Santa Barbara, Carpinteria, Ventura and Ojai.

Family winter vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family of six loved our 5 days at this house. I have never seen so many shorebirds in one place - off the deck and on nearby beaches. We loved having the two fireplaces to sit by on cool evenings. Each day we woke to sun rise over the water and usually dolphins arcing their way in front of the house. Chuck was ever helpful, friendly and enthusiastic about the beauty of the area. We felt well taken care of. I would go back in a flash.

What an impressive place at coastline in Ventura

  • 5 of 5

We booked a week in this wonderful house at seafront in Ventura (Faria Beach). Direct access to the pacific and 180 degree view to a spectacular nature with waves, dolphins, seals, pelicans and many other birds... and surfers of course. It's the perfect place to relax but also explore the beauty of the west coast north of LA.

Serenity Now

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property with majestic views of the ocean. It was everything we were looking for in a local getaway with our teenage kids. We surfed, went wine tasting, golfed, road biked, saw a concert at the Ventura County Fair, and enjoyed the peace and serenity of the ocean from the expansive deck. The house is well equipped with everything we needed and centrally located to the beach cities and wine country. We are looking forward to booking this home again next summer!

Beautiful House on the Beach

  • 4 of 5

White House is a beautiful large house right on the gated end of Faria beach. We loved the huge open plan family room/kitchen area. Ideal for entertaining - room for many people. The deck has direct access to the beach, although for our stay the tide tables did not cooperate so getting past the rocks onto the beach itself was a little tricky. I understand the sand/rock ratio can change depending on the weather so it may not always be like this. Lots of sea life to watch, seals, dolphins, pelicans etc. from the large deck area.

The house was spotlessly clean and well equipped. There was lots of room for six people (a huge master suite and two smaller double bedrooms, one with twin beds). Only 1 large towel/occupant was allocated when we arrived, but the property manager was happy to provide extra when requested.

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

The Whitehouse property is modern and elegant. If there is more to expect I don't know what that could be. Hard to go somewhere else when we all enjoy this house so much.
