Property description

Our Casita is on a 2 acre property nestled by neighboring orange 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 located close to Thacher school, and Meditation Mount. Ideal location for travelers seeking immediate decompression in a provincial style of existence.

Lrg Studio 1bath, fully equipped kitchen. The studio is well appointed and abundant with natural visual beauty. Be prepared to be transformed to a place of serenity. The amenities include luxury bedding and linens and plush spa robes to lounge in while enjoying a cup of morning coffee. As a smoke free and green friendly property, we have also considered all the comforts of home! So pack light. Prepare your meals on the outdoor grill, or well stocked kitchen, after a shopping trip up the road from local growers of fruits, veggies and Olive oil. Toss in some herbs from our garden to complete the meal. The dining patio awaits you! The space is an intimate open floor plan. We have hosted, couples, families with small children, friends, couples with dogs.

This charming Provence inspired property adorns a view of the mountains, gardens, Olive trees, fragrances of lavender, rosemary and orange blossoms when in season and welcoming sounds of flowing fountains. Step out into a serene and private patio set up for time of relaxation, bird gazing and a space to enjoy lounging with a good book. Meandering rock path will lead you to our pool area. The bright stars transforms the patio into a romantic dining area for two or a lively and festive evening with friends and family. Wake up to the sounds of the fountain and calming vistas to refresh the soul.

Whether lounging by the pool after a day of hiking and biking, taking in a nap in the hammock, reading under an Olive tree, or roasting marsh mellows with love ones around a fire pit, 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 with us a serene Ojai getaway!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: My family and I relocated to So Ca. from Berkeley in search of a new adventure and a place to temporarily hang our hat. Our stint in Ojai was to be a 4 year commitment. We are going on 17 years now. It has been just the absolute perfect place to raise our children and dogs here. When we found this property we immediately fell in love with it.The setting reminded us of our travels through the South of France. It has been a work in progress and a labor of love. Our most fondest memories of our travels abroad were meeting the families who owned farmhouses that we had stayed at. This vacation rental has allowed us to connect with incredibly fascinating people from all over the states and the world. Now we have the opportunity to be the hosts, and we are loving it!! We share our property with 2 dogs, 4 hens, quail, bunnies, squirrels and a multitudes of birds. We have hosted visitors from our other vacation rental vrbo 300370 since 2009 and has been the most rewarding experience for me and my family!

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 Cottage:
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. Dining 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.
