Great home away from home

  • 5 of 5

I just spent a week at Shelley's bungalow with my mother and two kids and it was just perfect. This place is in a wonderful neighborhood that seems to be close to everything. Both downtown and the beach are just a few minutes away. The place itself has everything you need to make you feel comfortable- a full kitchen (with great tea selection), cozy beds, and the kids were happy there was internet and Netflix. Beyond that Shelley is a great host and responded to all my questions very promptly. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

If the integrity of a property owner is important to you, PLEASE DO NOT RENT THIS PROPERTY. While the unit was nice, and our stay in Ventura was lovely, we had to leave early because my daughter had to move north unexpectedly. We gave the owner notice and asked if she would be willing to return some of our money if she could rent the unit out as soon as we left. We even offered to leave early and stay in a hotel if she could rent it sooner. She came to us early one morning as we were leaving for a short trip and told us that she had indeed rented the unit. The new occupants were expected while we were away, so we quickly threw our stuff together and vacated the unit. As we left, she again agreed to refund some of the rent we had paid even though her listing said no refunds. When we returned, we stayed in a hotel for the remainder of our visit. While there, we contacted her to see about the refund. She said via text and email that she was working on our refund. Needless to say, it is now four months later and still no refund and no communication. So, if honesty and integrity is important to you, PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM THIS RENTAL. All the other reviews say how nice she was, and this is true, she was very nice to us, until it came to money. When it came to this, she was no longer friendly. Do not trust her. Do not rent from her!

In addition to this, we had several other issues. The owner promised to put in air conditioning for us. It was not done prior to our arrival. We had to call and remind her. The unit eventually arrived, it was damaged, had to be reordered and only then was it installed…weeks after our arrival. The installation then caused a problem with the circuit breaker. She told us that she knew there was a ghost problem and some outlets shouldn’t be used. Ultimately, the entire unit had to be rewired while we were in the unit causing an inconvenience as we had to be present while the work was done. In addition, be aware that there was a lot of traffic on the road during the mornings and evenings as people speed up and down the hill in front of the house. If you want to sleep in, the noise was disrupting. Finally, be advised that the owner parked her small motor home in the driveway and/or stayed in the adjacent unit when it was not occupied. If you do not want the owner in your driveway or next door with the front door open wide open watching you come and go while you are there, do not rent this pace. There was little privacy.

What a view!

  • 4 of 5

I loved loved loved seeing that sunset view through the three palm trees to Santa Cruz Island every night! The neighborhood was lovely and our stay was enjoyable. We were traveling as a family: Mom, Dad, 4 1/2 year old and 15 month old. It was a bit hot in the place in the evenings and we would have loved to know about the fan in the garage sooner, and the grout is crumbling which got under foot a bit, but besides that, we were very comfortable. (My 6 foot husband had to crouch in the shower due to a low shower head, he would have me mention.) The CalKing was amazing and big enough for my husband, daughter and I. We also fit a Pack and Play in the bedroom, as well. Would look into the 2 bedroom with backyard for a future visit.

By the way, the Vietnamese/Hawaiin place nearby called Mai's is yummy! And don't miss Boccali's in Ojai! Enjoy!

Perfection in Ventura

  • 5 of 5

There is nothing I would change about this rental as well as the owner/manager, Shelley. The word perfection comes to mind. It was our second year vacationing here. We simply LOVE coming here. It soothes the soul.

Adorable and roomy. Clean as a whistle

  • 5 of 5

Loved this wonderful oasis. Brand new comfy king bed. Location quiet and relaxing. Great bedding, comfortable furniture. Clean as can be. Hospitable hosts to help with anything you need. Rented the large one bedroom but keep in mind lovely 2 bed adjacent with another third bedroom cottage out back. With the two bedroom comes a massive patio for entertaining or just relaxing. Little herb garden out back. Nice views. Everything one needs. Shelly has put a lot of effort and consideration for a very accommodating stay. Even a washer and dryer. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again. Nice trail for hiking within walking distance. Hated to leave !
