Amazing Stay!

What an amazing stay! We absolutely loved the thoughtfully designed space and location to downtown/beach. Everything is easily walkable and the host has put some amazing care into the home. I would highly recommend a stay here for a weekend in Ventura!

The Arabella is so beautiful. The details are amazing. The location is a quick walk to the beach and the downtown Ventura restaurants and shopping. I highly recommend staying at the Arabella. My friends and I will definitely be coming back!

Sweet time travel with ocean breezes... great place to gather

Being able to share a spacious and beautifully updated Victorian home and guest studio as a family group (siblings, aunt, parents) was a special treat that's hard to find these days. Especially with its amazing downtown location. We gathered in the dining room for evening wine together, walked to dinner in town, strolled to the beach and, when needed, took breaks in our own private en-suites. The perfect setting for a memorable and well-balanced group experience without the hassle of driving or parking for outings. Plus, the beds and showers are amazing! And the creative touches throughout the house are fun to explore. We loved it! The owners are down-to-earth and easy to communicate with.

What a delightful AirBNB! Everything from the gorgeous space, little touches, location, and outside space was perfect. We thoroughly appreciated the parking spot and smart lock and felt right at home. 110% recommend!

A HOME AWAY FROM HOME - If you have an upcoming trip to Ventura, then look no further this is your home away from home! We instantly fell in love with Elizabeth’s little cottage, it has a stylish retro vibe with everything you could possibly want and more. All appliances worked perfectly, the bathroom was spacious and the bed was possibly the comfiest king bed I’ve ever slept in. There was actually to many amazing extras to list, delicious little treats were found in the kitchen and we loved that Elizabeth even went to the extra effort to include a basket full of wooden toys for our son to keep him busy. All Elizabeths local recommendations were great!

Wonderful house that has it all!

This beautiful Victorian is the perfect Ventura get-a-way! The space is a great mix of old world charm and modern amenities. We had a blast enjoying the common areas and beautiful kitchen. The beds were SO comfortable and the bathrooms were massive with amazing rain showers.

An Absolutely Wonderful Place

An absolutely wonderful place! Beautifully restored historic home in the heart of Ventura. Everything we wanted to do was within walking distance. And great taste in literature too! ;)

Adult Comfort & Value

The family who built the Arabella more than 100 years ago may be lost to history. Today, elegant parlors, high ceilings, large format furnishings and (3) beautiful second story master bedroom en suites define a very competent restoration just completed by very hip new owners. No need to ask if Turkish towels, luxury comfort mattress and linens are standard fare. Add easy walking to downtown venues, ocean air--and designated off street parking--the Arabella, truly, is all about the guest.
