"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."

"We just spent a long weekend at this charming little house. We had a great time hanging out on the peaceful front porch during the hot part of the day. The house is with in walking distance to coffee, restaurants, shops and hiking trails. Everything we could possibly want. The house was comfy and clean and yard had plenty of room for our dogs to play. Great place. Thank you."

"The bad news was that it rained the whole time during our stay at the Rolling Thunder Ranch The good news was that it didn't really matter. We had a group of 20 of us (people slept on air mattresses) that decided on this secluded location for a weekend getaway. We were not disappointed one bit. The place is exactly like the pictures. There are tons of different areas to escape to and the grounds are maintained perfectly. Only downfall is that the pool isn't heated. That would be literally my only complaint. Lisa was VERY responsive and answered emails promptly. Carla, Lisa's assistant, was amazing. TONS of firewood for the grill and various firepits. Outdoor fuse ball was a hit. Hiking across the street is fun. I will definitely be returning."

"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!"
