"We very much enjoyed staying at this lovely home in Ojai! What an oasis.
Sherry (owner) VERY responsive, accommodating, and easy to work with
Serene location and space
Close to the little downtown, but enough removed for lots of privacy
Simple but homey decor
Very clean and organized
Beautiful sweeping views
Lots of beds
A/C (though it actually kept pretty cool if we were careful to close windows)
Beautiful front porch and sitting area in the backyard with BBQ
Lots of space in living room for socializing with friends and family
Nice big driveway, loop around, for easy access
CONS: (Keep in mind I am rating this space 5 stars so the cons were not a big enough deal to lose any stars)
House / bedroom layout - it's a little strange. Would not be an issue for just one couple to stay. As far as beds go, it can accommodate 6 + 2 couches. However, it's laid out such that two bedrooms are through another bedroom...meaning you have to go through one bedroom (the best one) to access the rest of the house. We made it work because we are all family. But just keep that in mind based on your group's needs.
One bathroom - again, no problem with just a couple visiting. But for 5 people, it was a little difficult. No big deal as we made it work, and were aware going into it. It's just always nice to have an additional bathroom.
Thanks so much for the awesome house! We'll definitely consider it again when we come back."

Great relaxing retreat house & the pool was wonderful!
"We enjoyed our stay here -- there was plenty of room both indoors and out. The pool was a really wonderful and much utilized amenity. We barbecued a few nights in, and sampled the Ojai restaurants the others. The property was very clean and tastefully decorated."

"I booked this for two and a half weeks and I'm so glad I did! I've stayed in many places around Ojai, both hotels and rentals, and this is one of my favorites. It's incredibly close to downtown, especially the farmer's market. When I first walked in I took a deep breath and loved the smell of the wood used on the walls and ceilings. The jasmine hedges where we parked were in bloom and smelled delicious as well. The cottage comes with many little things - baking dishes and utensils, coffee (along with a grinder, filters, and a coffee pot) and so many more it's hard to list them all, along with the listed amenities (sifi, cable, stove, fridge, etc.). The setting is just beautiful, including the little seating area in the back. I can't recommend it enough."

"Our multi generational family spent a week in this very peaceful home. The house was very well stocked with linens, kitchenware, cookware, and reading material. The owner was very, very easy to work with. We had plenty of room to park our cars and boat trailer off the street with easy access. The house is very comfortable and well located for various activities. We visited the Ojai Farmers Market on Sunday and stocked up with fresh fruit and veggies for the week, fished at Lake Casitas, went to the beach at Carpentaria, visited Ventura, and then came back to this relaxing and cozy house. We grilled almost every evening and relaxed on the patio which provided plenty of seating. There is much to do in Ojai: shopping, wine tasting, hiking. The house was very clean and tastefully decorated. Our group ranged in age from 12 years to 90 with one small dog. Thank you for sharing your home, I would certainly recommend it!"
