My parents were in town for the weekend. They stayed in the house for three nights. I joined them with my two toddler age children for two of the nights. The house was cute, clean, and as advertised very close to the beach. The sun room was a great plus to make the house bigger. We had a wonderful time.

We stayed for a week at this lovely apartment. It was an easy walk to the beach and we even walked to downtown Ventura. The shopping was a lot of fun. There was a grocery store nearby, but we felt away from it all when we were at the house. There's not laundry at the house, but the laundermat was close and reasonable...and we had all of the laundry done in an hour and a half! ;)
Joy is a delight to work with and I hope to get back that way again.
They do need a larger pan or two. But other than that, the house is well stocked and very comfortable. From internet and cable to games and books to spices. It was nice to feel like what we needed was there.
Thanks for the great time!!!

I stayed in this home for a week with three other women with whom I'd only conversed on Facebook, as we were in Ventura for a class we were all taking. We were gone all day and hardly got to take advantage of the proximity to the beach and all the beach gear provided by the owners, but it was so nice to have a home at the end of the day instead of a motel room! It was very clean and pleasant, it had everything we needed, and there was a basket of treats left for us upon arrival. We loved the neighborhood. It was cozy for four adults but pleasantly so, and we all would stay there again with no hesitation. The owner was very helpful and responded to a query about extra keys by getting one for us before we arrived. I would absolutely recommend this house to a family or small group as a lovely place to stay. Thank you!

At the last minute, my daughter and I needed a place to stay in Ventura. The owner and manager were quick to respond and more than willing to work with us so we could arrive within a few hours. The apartment was perfect--very comfortable with lots of windows. This is a nice neighborhood, but quiet to be so close to the beach. Two Italian restaurants are within walking distance--we ate at both! We didn't spend much time on the beach, but we are planning a return visit to take advantage of the beautiful beach that is so close.

We spent four nights at the Dew Drop Inn and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The rental was clean, comfortable and cute. The pictures provided on HomeAway were accurate and the rental truly was one block from the beach. We spent time on the beach every day we were there and really appreciated all the beach equipment available at the beach house - plenty of towels, boogie boards, beach chairs, umbrella, cooler, etc. We didn't use the kitchen much, but it was well stocked for cooking if we had chosen to use it. Joy was very helpful professional, and concerned for our comfort upon our arrival.

Ventura is relaxing and beautiful, particularly for those of us coming from the desert. The city doesn't seem to be fast-paced, and the people are friendly. It was exactly what we were looking for on vacation this year. Two recommendations for food - there is a donut shop next to Starbucks in the shopping center a few blocks away. The donuts are absolutely to die for! We also ate at Eric Ericsson's on the Pier. The food was excellent, and they made sure to seat us next to the windows so we could see the ocean. There is also a cute shop in historic downtown called Sea Things with everything ocean related. We hope to return next year and would definitely rent the Dew Drop Inn again.
