Welcome to the Little Blue Cottage in Port Hueneme (pronounced "Wy-nee'mee"). This is a seaside community in Ventura County, California. Port Hueneme is located 60 miles northwest of Los Angeles and 40 miles south of Santa Barbara. The City's name derives from a Chumash word (Wene'mu) meaning "resting place." Today's Port Hueneme is located halfway between two larger Chumash settlements, today's Malibu and Ventura.
