About Owner/Property Manager
We , Tom and Kathleen Koenig, have lived in Venura since 1991. We always dreamed of living at the beach and purchased this house in 1996. We rebuilt it 10 years ago. We LOVE Ventura and especially our area of Pierpont. We are close enough to LA so that you can get to all it has to offer in a few short hours yet far enough away to not have to deal with the big city hassels. Tom was an LA City Firefighter for 31 years. Kathleen is a professional artist. We are both semi-retired but keep busy with 5 grown kids and 10 grandkids. We have been married for more than 46 years and still have a GREAT time with eachother. we love the outdoors, traveling and entertaining family and friends. And our home and the area we live in means we have guests often. There is nothing like walking down to the beach in the morning and seeing the islands or dolphins surfing the waves. There is something magical about looking at the ocean and then turning around toward our mountains and seeing snow covering the backcountry. It is a slice of paradise ! We will do everything we can to make your vacation so memorable that you will be wanting to come back again and again.

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Pierpont Bay
Our property and the town of Ventura are in an ideal location. Again it is close to all of the entertainment options Southern California has to offer but we are nestled in a spot that it unique. Most of the beach communities are really crowded. The beaches, restauraunts etc. are packed with tourists to the point where it can make it hard to relax and enjoy. Not here in Ventura. We have all that the other beach towns have without the huge crowds! For Shoppers, our downtown has great women's boutiques, our mall has all the well known stores ( and it is just 5 miles from us) like Macys, H&M, Forever 21, Express, JC Pennys, Target. Camarillo Outlets is world famous. There are tours that come from around the world specifically to shop there. Getting there is a 15 minute drive. We have 2 Trader Joes and Whole Foods grocery store will be opening in the next few months. We have an amazing Farmers Market every Saturday in the downtown with our local farmers bringing their produce, flowers, cheeses meats and more to market.
What makes this House unique
We built our home to be comfortable and cozy. We want our guests to feel at home from the moment they walk in. We designed it to be light and open with lots of windows. When we were planning the backyard we wanted complete privacy and we have accomplished that. You could spend your entire visit here never getting in your car because everything you need is within walking distance.

Great Home Close to Beach
It was just like having a good friend hand you the keys to their (neat & clean) home and saying "enjoy yourselves".
Large master bedroom (w /own bathroom), smaller 2nd bedroom, + futon in office area. Large open plan family room/ eating area with gourmet kitchen. Kitchen has all you probably will need in the way of cookware. Nice private backyard / patio with gas grill & plenty of amenities.
5 min. walk to beach or restaurants. Vons within a 2-3 min. drive (10-15 min walk?), A Trader Joes is within 15 minutes on other side of the 101.
2 car driveway.
A heads up for people from out of the area: Street parking can be challenging during weekends & holidays.
Looking forward to our next visit. Love the house and how "homey" it feels.
A big Thank You to Tom and Kathleen!
What a lovely review Christy! Thank you! You and your family were fabulous guests and we look forward to your next stay! Have a great rest of summer and see you next year!!!
We made the best of a somewhat odd rental. It is the first rental where the owners still had their clothing and personal items throughout the house. The house is advertised as a 3-bedroom/2-bath. One of the supposed bedrooms was so tiny it fit only a queen bed and a chair — no closet whatsoever! We made the best of the lack of space but it was a bit off-putting. The living room was spacious, as was the back enclosed patio (best feature).
On the plus side, there were a couple of beach chairs, boogie boards and umbrellas to drag to the very nearby beach. User convenient to a Von’s grocery store and walking distance to beach restaurants. All-in-all, a good time was had by our party of four adults and one grandchild.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review Ellen. I would like to clarify a few points you made. We know that many rentals are “bare bones”. We have purposefully made sure that when guests arrive they have everything they need and that our home feels like a home. We supply over 20 pictures and a detailed description of our home.
So happy you enjoyed the boogie boards, beach chairs,towels, coolers, umbrella, backyard, and closeness to the beach!
Beautiful beach home!
We rented this house for a weekend stay for a wedding in the area. I was baking for the wedding and needed a large kitchen and this house provided that. The house is a beautiful beach cottage, and really makes you feel at home. Kathleen met us at the door when we got there and gave us a little tour of the house, she was very easy to communicate with and if we needed anything she was just a phone call away! It's a very quaint area, with restaurants and shops all right around the corner! If you're looking for a little getaway, or a family vacation this is the perfect place! Kathleen was absolutely fantastic and we would rent from them again!
Thanks so much Ashley! You and your family were a pleasure to host! We look forward to your another stay. Hopefully you’ll have some time to explore when you come next time.
Cute beach bungalow.
Situated on busy Main thoroughfare. House was clean and comfortable. Compact car parking in driveway. Owners very accommodating.
You can't beat this house & location. Our stay was perfect. Can't wait to be back
Thanks Katrina! That means so much as we do our best to take care of our guests beyond what they had hoped for!
The property was perfect for us
We were close to the beach and close to the store. It was roomy and very comfortable. The kitchen was up to date and had everything we needed. We especially loved the 2 outdoor seating areas. We'll definitely be coming back
Thanks so much David! We know that guests are holding their breath as they walk through the door... hoping that it looks like the photos. Our goal is to exceed people's expectations and do our best to make their stay memorable and relaxing.
We'll see you next summer David!!
Ventura is a bit of paradise. it is a stunning beach town that sits on the central coast. Our home is 1 block off the beach and best of all our beach is uncrowed and very private. We have a 18 mile bike path that will take you along the water front and up to Ojai. We have world class wineries less than an hour away. Our marina (2 miles away) boasts restaurants, fishing excursions, kayak adventures that will take you to the Channel Islands just 11 miles off the coast. Our downtown, a five minute car or taxi ride,has everything you could want...restaurants, theaters, boutiques, bars and nightlife. We host a Beers and Blues Festival in May that is awesome. We have walking tours for the 'Foodies' and Wine tours for the wine enthuasists. Our village (known by the locals as Seward Village) is less than a 5 minute walk from our house. There you will find a great pub and grille, an italian bistro with awesome food and drink, Dukes a local favorite that serves up burgers, beer and lots of fish , and a sushi spot. For the coffee and sweet tooth people ther is a coffee house with in house made desserts and a frozen yogurt shop. A Starbucks and grocery store is just a block up from the Village.
