Property description

Our Casita Ojai is on a 2 acre property shared with my family. It is nestled by neighboring orange and avocado orchards, olive trees and the Los Padres National forest in the beautiful East end of Ojai. With the center of town just minutes away it is an ideal location for travelers seeking a retreat like feel that is just around the corner to many sites of Ojai. We invite you to enjoy our spacious 700 sq ft. Studio suite guesthouse with 1 Bathroom with a shower, a fully equipped kitchen with an adjoining porch. The contemporary furnishings and abundant visual beauty, will immediately transform the wary traveler to a place of serenity. The amenities are vast from the down comforter bedding and spa robes to lounge in front of the fireplace in the winter or on the porch having coffee. Wake up from a restful nights sleep on our comfortable bed to the sounds of natures creatures. As a smoke free and green friendly property, we have also considered all the comforts of home! So pack light. Grill your fresh produce purchase from veggie stands around the corner or at our fabulous farmers market, and squeeze fresh lemon juice from our trees and splash olive oil from growers across the way on top to finish, and you'll be dining a fresco in a matter of minutes.
The spacious casita is an open floor plan with high beam ceilings which gives it an airy and open feel. French doors open to the porch and views of the pool and garden. Tastefully decorated with amenities to ensure for a home away from home feel. Imagine a personal massage on the covered porch, taking a dip in the pool after a day of hiking and biking, allowing yourself an afternoon nap in the hammock, escaping into a novel under an aged oak tree, reliving a childhood memory of roasting marsh mellows around a fire pit, or cuddling with that special someone having wine by star light, all this can be experienced here at casita Ojai. Our property will rejuvenate your mind, body and spirit. So if you are ready to escape and to rediscover the simple pleasures of life........let it be here at casita Ojai an exceptional getaway!

We look forward to hosting your visit to Ojai.

Warmly, your host in waiting

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: A Berkeley native I moved to Ojai 17 years ago. The community, creative culture and slower paced lifestyle called to me. It has been just the absolute perfect place to raise my children and dogs. When I found this property I immediately fell in love with it.The setting reminded me of my travels through the South of France. It has been a work in progress and a labor of love. My most fondest memories of my travels abroad were meeting the families who owned farmhouses that I had stayed at. This vacation rental has allowed me and my family to connect with well traveled and fascinating people from all over the states and the world. Now we have the opportunity to be the hosts, and we are loving it!! I have 2 children off to college, and one at home. My youngest is a junior host in training. We share our property with 2 dogs, 6 hens, quail, bunnies, squirrels and a multitudes of birds.

Why the Owner Chose Ojai:
This property held a strong nostalgic feel to our travels abroad. The absolute visual and spiritual beauty and serenity of the East End was immediately captivating.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
There is an abundance of nature. The colors, the sounds, scents and awe inspiring vistas is all around us. Everyday is a spiritual awakening and an oasis. I sit out most days in the mornings with my cup of coffee to capture the activity of the animals when they arise. As the evening approaches the sounds once again changes. Where we live there are no street lights which gives us on clear evenings the most spectacular view of the stars. My most favorite time of the day is in the evening, especially when the cool breeze fills the night air. Dinning outdoors feels like we are on vacation also. We take our dogs on walks along pepper and olive tree lined roads. We also enjoy the hiking trails just up the road. We are fortunate to have neighbors who grow fruits and sell them at fruit stands on location. Freshly picked avocados, oranges, lemons and more.
