...a perfect retreat...
...a perfect retreat...
A wonderfully unique, embracing little cottage with all the necessities of life, including intangibles....I stayed there for two months while working on a music project and enjoying a retreat from the hectic life...it was perfect. Isolated enough at the end of a quiet street, close enough to walk to town or to a store or restaurant, and always bathed in light, warmth and nature. Jane is a delightful lady, keen to answer and questions or offer assistance.

I spent a month here and didn't want to leave. The cottage or the town. Everything clearly pictured and represented. It couldn't have been more lovely. Thanks Jane, hopefully I'll be back.

Went back to Ojai to see friends and enjoy the beautiful valley of my youth. I loved this quaint stone cottage and would definitely stay there again when I come back. I is convenient to downtown, maybe a 4 block walk, and also near trails for hiking. You can walk around to Signal St. to catch a Shelf Road walk or go up Canada to get the Pratt trail. The yard is full of beautiful citrus and cactus. The owner was helpful when I needed it, but otherwise I was left alone to enjoy my solitude.

Time at Casa Piedra
We stayed at Casa Piedra for the months of Feb/March 2012. It is located very near the center of Ojai and convenient to many of the activities that make Ojai an enjoyable place to visit. The house is comfortable, clean and hasexcellent facilities: a full kitchen with small gas stove, an assortment of cooking utensils, and an adjacent pantry with refrigerator and storage space; living room with fireplace, large screen television with full cable, and strong wifi connections; and a full bath and shower. The small bedroom has a comfortable queen-size bed and large closet with shelves and hanging space--a tight fit, but quite manageable. The charming stone house has a small porch overlooking a yard with an rich assortment of cactus plants, an old oak tree, and off-street parking. The neighborhood is quiet and convenient. The host and her daughter live behind the cottage and are very helpful and friendly. This rental is our first choice in Ojai, and we recommend it highly

I have lived in this beautiful stone cottage for three years. It has been a source of comfort and peace for me, as the stone walls make it so quiet and secure. I love the many windows looking out onto scenes of green trees, with the squirrels playing and the birds singing and flitting from branch to branch. Sometimes I forget that this is my home and feel like I'm at a special retreat, an extension of our neighbor, the Emerald Iguana Inn. We are on a corner of the neighborhood, so it feels very secluded. I especially love sitting on the front porch, enjoying the sunset or the solid oak tree in the front yard. The native desert plants around the garden along the dirt driveway only add to its charm. Jane and Elizabeth are wonderful neighbors. It is also conveniently located a 10 minute walk from downtown's shops, restaurants, Libbey Bowl/Park, and movie theater. I also love the nearby access to the hiking trails up Signal Ave and Shelf Road, which allow a quick escape into the mountains. It is a 15 minute drive into the Sespe Wilderness and the nearby Ventura River. I have truly enjoyed my time here and will remember this place always as my favorite home.
