About Jane

We love Ojai for it's natural beauty, great weather, small town charm, and friendly, community feeling. It's surrounded by the Los Padres National Forest where we love to hike. We swim year round and enjoy the wonderful bike trail. We enjoy the remarkable music and theater in Ojai.

We also love to visit the beach in Ventura, which is only 20 minutes away. We drive 45 minutes to Santa Barbara for all it has to offer, and LA is only 1 1/2 hours away.

Jane purchased this house in 1997

Why Jane chose Ojai

It's the perfect climate and combines old fashioned small town living with art, music and theater.

A quaint stone cottage under the oaks in Ojai

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this stone cottage in Ojai. It is a charming place with lots of windows and skylights. It has a lovely front porch where we enjoyed most of our meals under the beautiful oak trees. It is in walking distance of downtown, Sunday farmer's market, and great hikes. We also enjoyed the proximity to Ventura and Santa Barbara. The owner and daughter were very friendly and available to respond to any need. We can easily recommend you consider this as a destination, as we did for a month.

...a perfect retreat...

  • 5 of 5

A wonderfully unique, embracing little cottage with all

the necessities of life, including intangibles....I stayed there

for two months while working on a music project and enjoying a retreat from the hectic was perfect. Isolated enough at the end of a quiet street, close enough to walk to town or to a store or restaurant, and always bathed in light, warmth and

nature. Jane is a delightful lady, keen to answer and questions or offer assistance.

Cute as a button!

  • 5 of 5

I spent a month here and didn't want to leave. The cottage or the town. Everything clearly pictured and represented. It couldn't have been more lovely.

Thanks Jane, hopefully I'll be back.

Great Ojai Visit

  • 5 of 5

Went back to Ojai to see friends and enjoy the beautiful valley of my youth. I loved this quaint stone cottage and would definitely stay there again when I come back. I is convenient to downtown, maybe a 4 block walk, and also near trails for hiking. You can walk around to Signal St. to catch a Shelf Road walk or go up Canada to get the Pratt trail. The yard is full of beautiful citrus and cactus. The owner was helpful when I needed it, but otherwise I was left alone to enjoy my solitude.

Time at Casa Piedra

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Piedra for the months of Feb/March 2012. It is located very near the center of Ojai and convenient to many of the activities that make Ojai an enjoyable place to visit.

The house is comfortable, clean and hasexcellent facilities: a full kitchen with small gas stove, an assortment of cooking utensils, and an adjacent pantry with refrigerator and storage space; living room with fireplace, large screen television with full cable, and strong wifi connections; and a full bath and shower. The small bedroom has a comfortable queen-size bed and large closet with shelves and hanging space--a tight fit, but quite manageable.

The charming stone house has a small porch overlooking a yard with an rich assortment of cactus plants, an old oak tree, and off-street parking. The neighborhood is quiet and convenient. The host and her daughter live behind the cottage and are very helpful and friendly.

This rental is our first choice in Ojai, and we recommend it highly

Car: recommended

Ojai has a great bike path which will take you down to the beach. There is wine and olive oil tasting, a great Sunday farmer's market, and a local movie theater. There are miles or trails for horse back riding and hiking.

Tennis and swimming are available at a deluxe club for an additional fee.
