This classic 1920s seaside cottage (sleeps 4) is full of original details, from the gorgeous double-sided stone fireplace to the hardwood floors. Truly steps away from the ocean, you'll have a beautiful vacation whether you surf, swim, or simply watch the waves.
INSIDE THE COTTAGE
If you’re looking for a nostalgic trip to the ocean, you’ll adore this pretty 1920s cottage perched just above the beach. 4 inviting patio chairs face the water just outside the rental entrance.
Step into the living room, where a stone wood-burning fireplace dominates and comfy seating accommodates 6. This is how beach properties used to be—a modest retreat from the world, filled with antiques and original details.
To the right is a sunroom with a queen-size futon and two chairs—there's no door to this room.
Through the living room, the open dining area seats 4 around a cherry wood table and big windows look out on the ocean.
To the right of the dining room (facing the ocean) is the family room—a comfortable, less formal sitting area surrounded by windows. An entertainment center features a 24” TV for stormy days. The fireplace is double-sided, so you can also have a fire in this room.
Back through the dining room, the little kitchen has beautiful open and glass-front cabinets, a butcher block counter, gas range, and breakfast bar seating 2.
Off the living room is a hallway housing the bathroom and master bath. The master bed is full-size. Classic built-in cabinets and closets provide lots of storage here. The bathroom has tile floors, a beautiful vintage wood vanity, porthole window, skylight, and clawfoot tub with showerhead above.
Outside, there's a private, fenced-in backyard with an outdoor shower (perfect for washing off the sand!) and a patio/garden area with seating for 4 at a weathered wooden table.
Surfers will adore this cabin—not only are you as close as can be to the ocean, there’s an excellent surfing spot by the pier nearby known as Little Rincon. If you prefer to hike, a 30-minute drive takes you to several different trailheads in Los Padres National Forest.
This cabin is truly a retreat from the world; it’s a 10-minute drive to Carpinteria, the nearest town with a grocery store and restaurants. There you might want to hit up Worker Bee Cafe for breakfast and burgers or Zookers Restaurant for farm-to-table cuisine.
Downtown Ventura is a 10-minute drive away—spend a day exploring the Marina Park and piers and the shops and restaurants on Main Street.
