Hummingbirds Abound, Morning Sun on Mountains, Quiet, Beautiful Abode!
"Three of us stayed here in May and literally, when each of us arrived (separately) we spent the first few minutes walking around this gem saying "Wow. Wow! Wow!!!" We were in town for a 3 day workshop and found ourselves rising with the dawn to meditate on the porch and drink in every beautiful minute in this nature haven. I was delighted to walk right out the door in the morning onto the Shelf Trail that rims Ojai Valley. Bring your walking shoes - Pratt Trail, 1/2 mile walk is also well-worth exploring, and the grocery store and many delicious restaurants are an easy 15 minute walk down the hill to town and back up. What a joy to find so many thoughtful and welcoming touches inside, too...fresh flowers, an urn with several gallons of filtered drinking water, a well-equipped kitchen & bath, comfy beds, plenty of closets, drawers and hangers provided, fun 50's classic furniture and lamps, field guides on the bookshelf and so much more. Surprisingly spacious feeling for a small space. The queen bed in the open-floor-plan room becomes a peaceful sleep space when the curtains round it are drawn. The little bedroom on the side of the studio is a gem in itself - lie in bed and look right out over the valley. Many thanks to our kind and generous hosts!"

"We were lucky to get an early check in, Carla was there to meet us and give us the tour. There was some munchies and a nice bottle of wine waiting for us. The linens were clean and they had great down pillows and duvets. We slept one night in the living room by the fire.
The place is adorable and the best part is the yard! There is a gorgeous creek and lots of grass for our doggies to run around.
We all had a blast! I will definitely be back.
Thank you for a great stay."

"My husband and I rented this casita for a 3 night stay and had an amazing time. The property is close to town, but when you are here, you feel like you are in another world. It's so serene and relaxing. The casita was very comfortable and perfect for a couple. The front porch looks out to the pool and was stocked with pretty much anything you might need. We enjoy being able to cook some of our own meals on vacation so the kitchen was perfect to do do. Maida was unbelievably hospitable; she called to personally welcome us and was available to answer questions about Ojai and give recommendations. It was like having the sweetest concierge EVER. She was so great at giving us privacy, but we could reach out to her if we had a question or needed something. Each morning we got fresh eggs from the hens to make breakfast, so unique, and made the trip extra fun. After going on beautiful hikes in the day, we would settle in at the pool to enjoy the late afternoon sun and a drink and just relax. We fell in love with this casita and the town and valley of Ojai - we will be back!
Some tips while you are visiting:
- Go to Meditation Mount for sunset
- Ojai Beverage Co had fun beer and wine tasting + great food for lunch
- We took the hike to the left off Shelf Road and loved the views. I think it was called Fox Loop / Pratt Trail (we think?!)
- The Strawberry Shortcake at Boccoali's was out of this world
- I had a great massage at New Leaf, but call for an appointment and be asked to be placed in the private room. The other treatment area only had a curtain and you could hear people in the boutique.
- Nosu Vita (orange chairs on patio) had live music on Saturday night, really fun.
Overall, best time ever! I hope you can enjoy the magic of Ojai here like we did!!!"

"My two young kids, and my sister - took my mom here for a girls getaway weekend for her birthday. We couldn't have asked for a better spot! It is only about a 10 minute drive from the town part of Ojai but feels miles away from it all! It's just what we were looking for. The house is big and has everything you would need. The pool and spa is absolutely gorgeous during the sunset overlooking the Ojai hills. My kids loved swimming and walking around in "nature" outside. They also loved the kids' bedroom that even had toys, puzzles and a TV for them to watch a movie. The manager, Clark was very quick to respond and super helpful with the booking and even tips on where to eat. I would love to go back!"
