Recent Ventura vacation rental reviews

Our stay at Sunday Days was wonderful! We loved the location. It's walkable to all the best restaurants and venues on Main Street, and just a 15 minute walk (or 5 minute bike ride) to the pier beach, surfers point, and the beautiful bike/running path that runs along all the beaches. The house was comfortable and quiet, with comfortable beds, a well stocked kitchen and beautiful sunlight throughout the day. Check in was super easy with a keypad code. The hot tub in the backyard was so nice to have after a day at the beach plus new washer dryer, refrigerator and nice cooking equipment was great too, we love to cook so it's a plus when the kitchen is well stocked. We loved the neighborhood and felt like we were part of the town in this comfy, historical, pretty house. We would absolutely book again. Ventura is a dream!

This is an amazing house. The views from each of the rooms are great and the house is decorated beautifully. Honestly, if I owned this place I would keep it all to myself!

We were very pleased with our little getaway. The home was perfect size for our family (4 adults, a 5 year old and the dog) and so much closer to the beach than we imagined. It was literally a few steps away. It was private and had a lovely patio area. I was amazed as to how well equipped it was in the kitchen. We also enjoyed the local eateries that were just a short walk down the road. We got hit with a storm and stayed inside one day playing games and then ending with making homemade chili. It was very comfortable and cozy for those kind of days. We would come back again on another beach getaway to be with family!

Explore our Ventura, CA, vacation rentals

Keep close to the action with a Ventura vacation rental. This favorite travel spot is full of hip downtown shopping, exhilarating surfing, and a lively arts scene. More affordable than its luxurious cousin Santa Barbara, our Ventura vacation rentals are perfect for families and young adventurers. Known for its music scene, this town has a rich past and still-beating heart of live performances. The landmark Majestic Ventura Theater once welcomed The Doors and Ray Charles. Spectators have admired Smokey Robinson and the Grateful Dead at the seaside Ventura County Fairgrounds. If you're feeling inspired, satisfy your inner artist with a visit to Parsons Guitars.

Cultural attractions are abundant here. Get a taste of social history at the Old Mission San Buenaventura or Olivas Adobe. Catch the latest independent releases during the Ventura Film Festival. Getting around downtown Ventura when you want to shop, eat, and explore is easy. Take the free Harbor Trolley for the 45-minute loop through the business district's healthy mix of vintage thrift stores and high-end boutiques. Get your fill of the region's unique cuisine among local Mexican, East Asian, Hawaiian, and New American eateries.

Where is Ventura, CA?

Easily reachable from US 101 and many California state routes, Ventura is located right on the Pacific Ocean, just 66 miles northwest of Los Angeles and 33 miles south of Santa Barbara. Its closest neighbor is Oxnard, and within a 50-mile radius from Ventura, towns like Simi Valley, Santa Clarita, Ojai, and Thousand Oaks offer quiet spots to explore urban attractions or the great outdoors.

 

 

Outdoor adventures in Ventura 

The trolley will take you to Harbor Village at the shore. From there, you can head for Surfer's Point and watch experts ride the waves, or even sign up for your own lessons. Go on a charter sailboat expedition on the Pacific, or simply work on your tan while cooling off at the breakers. Many beaches here welcome dogs, so reserve a pet-friendly Ventura vacation rental and bring your four-legged friends!

With a Mediterranean climate, Ventura weather is as desirable as it gets for those who love warm, dry days and cool nights. On land, you'll be able to enjoy the Golden State sun while cycling on the Omer Rains Bike Trail. Take a ferry to Channel Islands National Park, then explore the magnificent hiking trails, take a snorkeling expedition, or kayak around the five islands' 175 miles of pristine coastline.

In nearby Oxnard, there are even more beaches (with fewer visitors) to lounge on as well as helicopter and whale watching excursions. If the rev of an engine thrills you, take in an afternoon at the Ventura Raceway!

Day trips from Ventura

While a jaunt to Los Angeles would certainly be fun, you'll find fewer crowds, romantic trips, and family-friendly fun in the smaller towns surrounding from our Ventura vacation rentals.

Just under 30 miles away are olive orchards in Ojai where you can sample exquisite oils, then spend the day hiking among cottonwoods and poppies in Rose Valley Falls in Los Padres National Forest.

For a taste of Hollywood without all the bustle, head 45 miles inland to Santa Clarita, a popular filming site for hundreds of television programs and movie sequences. The nearby community of Newhall retains its frontier-style appeal for Western movies - complete with a bison paddock. Each September, Newhall hosts an all-inclusive powwow. 

Extend your Native American cultural tour at the Chumash Indian Museum in Thousand Oaks. Then, take advantage of the fair weather with a family walk through Gardens of the World. Cali loves its famous residents and popular heritage, and the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley offers eclectic exhibitions of Americana and political history.

For a California home base that's close to all the action but just a bit off the beaten track, book one of our Ventura vacation rentals for your family and friends.
