                  Location

                  Car: Necessary

                  The Apple House is so wonderful you may never want to leave. If you do feel the urge to explore wider afield, many of our guests take day trips to Los Angeles for the various theme parks like Disneyland, Universal Studios or Magic Mountain. Or take a short drive to Santa Barbara for all it has to offer: Santa Barbara Zoo, World Class Dining, Outstanding Beaches. My personal favorite is the beach at Santa Claus Lane in Carpenteria. This beach offers surfing lessons and many little boutiques and restaurants as well - worth the 20 minute drive. A must for first time Ojai visitors is the 2 mile family friendly hike along the Ridge Trail located at the tip of Signal Street. Enjoy a cool morning walk along this trail. Bring your camera for the breathtaking views of the Ojai Valley. Then finish your walk and stop in town for coffee and a stroll down down the famous Arcade or a rest in Libbey Park. If you're in town on Sunday morning do not miss the Farmers Market. Search out BD's vegetable stand. His farm is located a stones throw from The Apple House. For biking enthusiasts there are two local bike stores where you can rent bikes and accessories. A paved bike path leads you all the way to Ventura or if mountain biking is your thing ask the bike store to recommend a suitable trail. We do have some bikes on property.

                   

                  Owner info

                  About the owner: I grew up in the nearby town of Santa Paula although I have spent my adult life in Northern California. The Apple House is our home away from home, a true family retreat. A place where we escape life's fast pace, and enjoy the company of our family and friends.

                  Why the Owner Chose Ojai:
                  This property is truly magical. Upon arriving you will be awed by its beauty and tranquility. Each room is warm and welcoming. Designed with many entertaining areas like the covered front porch and the large pool area. Spacious enough to host a group yet intimate enough to find your own 'secret place' to enjoy the peace and quiet.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
                  Walk to town. Quiet and serene.
