About Maida Interiano

My family and I relocated to So Ca. from Berkeley in search of a new adventure and a place to temporarily hang our hat. Our stint in Ojai was to be a 4 year commitment. We are going on 17 years now. It has been just the absolute perfect place to raise our children and dogs here. When we found this property we immediately fell in love with it.The setting reminded us of our travels through the South of France. It has been a work in progress and a labor of love. Our most fondest memories of our travels abroad were meeting the families who owned farmhouses that we had stayed at. This vacation rental has allowed us to connect with incredibly fascinating people from all over the states and the world. Now we have the opportunity to be the hosts, and we are loving it!! We share our property with 2 dogs, 4 hens, quail, bunnies, squirrels and a multitudes of birds. We have hosted visitors from our other vacation rental vrbo 300370 since 2009 and has been the most rewarding experience for me and my family!

Maida Interiano purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Maida Interiano chose Central Coast

This property held a strong nostalgic feel to our travels abroad. The absolute visual and spiritual beauty and serenity of the East End was immediately captivating.

What makes this cottage unique

There is an abundance of nature. The colors, the sounds, scents and awe inspiring vistas is all around us. Everyday is a spiritual awakening and an oasis. I sit out most days in the mornings with my cup of coffee to capture the activity of the animals when they arise. As the evening approaches the sounds once again changes. Where we live there are no street lights which gives us on clear evenings the most spectacular view of the stars. My most favorite time of the day is in the evening, especially when the cool breeze fills the night air. Dining outdoors feels like we are on vacation also. We take our dogs on walks along pepper and olive tree lined roads. We also enjoy the hiking trails just up the road. We are fortunate to have neighbors who grow fruits and sell them at fruit stands on location. Freshly picked avocados, oranges, lemons and more.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the casita. It was very peaceful and low key. Exactly what we were looking for. I invited several friends over for an evening and the first thing they said upon entering the cottage was," Oh how cute!!!" They all said they wanted to live in the cottage. :) The patio and the fire pit was enjoyable as well as the chickens who came over to say "hello".... And the bed was sooooo comfortable! Maida was welcoming and a gracious host...... Ojai is a magical town. We will be back!!

Great place to relax and enjoy country setting

  • 5 of 5

Spacious cottage, well furnished and comfortable. Outside seating area beautiful. Cool breezes made sitting there enjoyable. Owner friendly and available if needed. About 2 miles outside of town and away from the noise but easy to get too. Found several great restaurants and a bakery in town. Don't pass up the outside book store (Bart's Books).

Blissful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous weekend hanging out in this casita. A short bike ride in to town for food and drink, quiet rolling hills of orange and avocado orchards and some of the most dog friendly walks, shops and adventures. The pool was cool and very clean. The property comfortable and convenient. The hostess...subtly one of the best. Many THANKS! for your time, help and wonderful accommodations!!

Lavender in full bloom

  • 4 of 5

We had a delightful stay: scrabble on the patio, lovely hikes nearby. Our only disappointment was that the chickens, despite our best efforts and coaching, were just not in a laying mode. No worries, we very much loved the rural peace of the East End.

Comfortable Privacy

  • 5 of 5

This little house nestled in the hills above Ojai provides abundant scenery with beautiful furnishings. The owner was extremely pleasant and helpful with any questions we had during our stay. The kitchen is well-stocked in utensils if you are a fan of home cooked meals. If you are looking for a quiet place to stay while enjoying Ojai and/or the surrounding area I highly recommend this place.

First time visit in Ojai....

  • 5 of 5

Your place was perfect for a relaxing weekend. Also, thank you for the recommendations of all the places to eat. There was plenty of room in this very large studio to relax and unwind from the city. The outdoor space was perfect for outdoor dining and our doggies loved it too. We'll be back soon!
