Faria Beach in Ventura is a marine sanctuary with exposed tide pools, constant sand flows, and some of the most dynamic marine environments along the California coast. Here, the ocean is your playground and your backyard! 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. Faria is right next to Solimar and Sea Cliff communities.

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.

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.

From the moment we walked into this home the views captured our hearts! This was a perfect family retreat. The location was close to town, whale watching & the water! Did I mention the breath taking views?! However, the sense of sound will be spoiled has you lay in the master bedroom; the sounds of the waves crashing on the rocks will have you sleeping in no time. You will not be disappointed with this home. The home is stocked with every supply needed during your stay ( bring your own food of course ). Thank you for the wonderful retreat! Depending on where my son is stationed, we hope to visit again soon!

"I'll Be Back!"

  • 5 of 5

This was my primary thought upon closing the front door of this Faria Beach home as I made my (sad) return to Seattle. My wife and I stayed 5 nights at "The White House", and we were in heaven the entire time. We were celebrating our (belated) 25th wedding anniversary, and we couldn't have picked a better spot. There are too many positive attributes of this home to list in any great detail, but I'll try to touch upon a few. The home is very open and roomy, and I felt like we could really spread out. Discovering the massive walk-in closet was a wonderful surprise, as my wife and I often end up spilling our suitcases in the master bedroom which causes an eye sore. Now we were able to hang every piece of clothing we brought, and the extra shelves were terrific for other items such as hats, beach towels, and other articles. I loved the views! You're able to see the ocean clearly from most every room (although we kept the master shutters closed throughout our stay). The surfing was really going off during our stay, and it provided us with hours of entertainment. The outdoor deck was definitely the highlight. Massive in size, it offers gorgeous mountain views to the left, and sunsets to the right. I spent several hours outside tanning, and it did wonders for not only my white Pacific Northwest skin but my spirit as well. Hearing the waves is so therapeutic. I should mention the sound system also plays your music (iPhone, mp3 player, etc.) throughout the home and even on the deck. There are several volume knobs located in each room which allows you to control the output as needed. As music fans, we absolutely LOVED this feature. We used the gas fireplace one evening, and found it to be very effective in heating the living room area (as it was a bit chilly that night). I also liked the bathroom/shower area. Very roomy, with a washer/dryer in the back of the room. This was terrific not having to enter a cold garage to do laundry. The kitchen offered tons of room to walk around, and the fridge is very large. In short, this place is a fantastic place to stay for a couple or an entire family. Tons of room to spread out! You'll never feel claustrophobic inside this property. As for the cons, there are few. One thing we discovered was the power plugs weren't working in the master bathroom, but I suspect this was just a blown fuse from a blow dryer. The blinds near the front door should probably be addressed, but no big deal. LOVE this Faria property, and will return!
