Property description

Located in unincorporated Ventura County, this property is a licensed vacation rental. The Transient Occupancy Tax is included in your total rental fees.
***************************************************************
Beautiful grand Spanish Mansion built in 1929. A Ventura County Historical Landmark. Plus a California Non-Profit. Talk a walk back in time when you enter the iron gates. Stunning entryway with high ceilings, stained glass windows and marble floors. Large living room with player piano, fireplace and hookah lounge. We have over 80 rolls of music for the piano for a wonderful evening of old fashioned Karaoke!
We also have a secret playroom with a PlayStation, flat screen tv and dress up trunks loaded with wigs and costumes for all ages!


Master bedroom with king size canopy bed, fireplace and large balcony with mountain views and private bath. Another master bedroom with queen bed, private bath and large balcony. Three more bedrooms, one with a queen bed, one with a queen and a full size bed, and one with one full size bed. Office on the first floor with Queen size Murphy bed. Large walk in cedar lined closets in all of the rooms. Pillowtop or tempur pedic mattresses, most beds have 1200 thread count sheets.

We have a chef's dream of a kitchen, with a La Cornu double oven with 5 burners, lots of counter space and every kitchen gadget you can imagine and a beautiful butler's pantry with vintage servingware for formal dinners in the gorgeous dining room with handpainted ceilings. Formal dining room seats 12 people.

Connected to the kitchen is the cozy den with soft leather furniture and Cable TV with DVD player and a great DVD library.

Large tiled and flagstone patio with enough space to seat 150 includes an outdoor fireplace. Large stainless grill and enough tables and chairs on site to seat 40. One acre of beautiful landscaped grounds including a six-person hot tub surrounded by bamboo.

Large barn converted to a Saloon/game room with darts, pool table and bar. Just added a bunkhouse in the Saloon with antique full size bed and a sofa bed. Half bathroom with sauna and views of the alpacas.

Large orange and avocado orchard and horse corral with a herd of friendly mini alpacas and a dozen egg laying hens!

It's great fun to collect your own eggs for breakfast. We have a juicer for making your own fresh orange, tangerine or grapefruit juice. Plus a double waffle maker, crepe maker and bread maker to complete the best breakfasts during your stay. Or you can hire our in house chef to make you breakfast!

Natural rock dipping pool with waterfall. Your own private Ojai swimming hole! It is set in the middle of an orange orchard where you can eat oranges from the trees while you float around the pool. BBQ and multiple seating areas for outdoor dining by the pool. There is also a firepit for making smores after a day in the sun.

Guest house on site is occupied by the caretaker who can assist you during your stay.

Car: Recommended

Only a 1 block walk from a variety of restaurants in downtown Meiners Oaks. We have 3 markets, 7 restaurants from fancy dining to casual. There is also a bookstore, spa and other shops close by. Beautiful walking paths at the nearby Ojai meadow and hiking trails are only 4 blocks away at the Ventura River preserve. We have it all, no need to drive at all when your here unless you want to go to downtown Ojai which is a 5 minute drive.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Ask me about wonderful places to explore; hikes, swimming holes, hot springs. I can also arrange for horseback riding or in-house massage. Plus I can set you up with wine or olive oil tasting!

Why the Owner Chose Ojai, CA, USA:
I always loved taking day trips to Ojai to enjoy the peace and serenity of the country. I loved going on horseback rides and hiking along the river discovering swimming holes. When I saw this house online I had to see it and when I walked in the entryway I was sold. The Mansion is a stunning piece of history and a gorgeous property. Weddings and events are held at the Mansion, contact us for an event package.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
The Mansion may look formal with its handpainted ceilings and antique furniture but it is also very comfortable and warm. The grounds are a wonderful place to explore, pick fruits from the trees and find eggs hidden by our resident hens. The game room with its pool table and dart board is a fun place to hang out and visit with the horses who love to poke their heads through the windows!
