    The Bonaventure was very nice and upgraded. They were very well-staffed and really catering to the residents there. It was definitely top notch. The rooms were very nice and very accessible for the disabled. The food smelled amazing, and they had lots of events.

    The Bonaventure's staff is very pleasant, and I am very satisfied. I am planning on moving there. I like the facility and the people who are working there. I should be happy there. The apartments are clean and a good size. I have nothing negative to say about them.

    The Bonaventure mimics the one I visited from Simi Valley. The people were more cooperative, and the staff showed us whatever we wanted and were very congenial. They had an activities calendar as well and it looked loaded. However, Sunday was the day of rest for them, so they did not have anything going on. It was a very nice facility. Their dining area was set up like a restaurant.

    The Bonaventure had nice-sized rooms. It’s not suited for my in-laws because it’s not assisted living, and you have to contract for somebody to do the things that we need. It’s for people who are more independent. It’s a beautiful place but not suited for what we need.

Description of The Bonaventure


Sixty miles north of the bustling Los Angeles metro area, Ventura is truly a breath of fresh air. Surrounded by lemon and flower orchards, The Bonaventure offers a perfect blend of beach and country living. The seaside community serves as a gateway to California’s ruggedly beautiful central coast, while boasting charms all its own; Ventura has over 700 acres of parkland and facilities, two championship golf courses, unique museums, galleries, miles of beaches and ample destinations to delve into California’s rich history, including the Olivas Adobe Historical Park and the Ortega Adobe. And we're just eight miles from all the exciting shops and eateries of Ventura Beach. Our friendly staff wants you to have a wonderful experience, and you'll wish you'd come home to us sooner.

The Bonaventure is delighted to be a Holiday Retirement community. Since 1971, Holiday Retirement has been building extraordinary homes for seniors. We have created communities for seniors who want a rewarding and enriching retirement experience.
