Downtown restaurants are California cafe casual and offer something for everyone, from authentic burritos to tapas Mediterranean-style, from gourmet deli to LA vegetarian, from homemade pizza to local wine tasting, and four coffeehouses thrown in for good measure.
Natural-foods markets are locally owned, and the picture-perfect Sunday Farmer’s Market is friendly and regionally famous.
Shopping is upscale, with boutiques lining the main drag, and a variety of festivals and events each weekend throughout the year.

For the sports enthusiast, Ojai is a nationally famous golf and tennis destination, home to the golf course at The Ojai Valley Inn and Spa, and placed second in a national “tennis town” contest due to it’s perfect weather and pristine open tennis courts. In addition, the lovely Lake Casitas is just 5 miles up the road, with the best bass fishing in California , and a local waterpark for the kids.
Shoppers will find a quaint downtown street of locally owned upscale boutiques and art galleries, including an independent toy store and several quality consignment stores for shoppers who love the hunt. And don’t miss locally famous Bart’s Books, an open air mecca for used books and the people who love them.

Year Purchased: 2000
About the owner: When I purchased this land in 2000 it was a chemically farmed citrus orchard. I made the three year transition to organic, designed and built the Villa's and the gardens, diversified, and the culmination of those efforts are this small and wonderful community we now call Red Tail Ranch complete with an organic farm (Mano Farm) and seed company (All Good Things). And yes - there are beautiful Red Tail Hawks here!
Why the Owner Chose Ojai, CA, USA:
If you want to experience living in nature but with ultimate comfort, to 'escape it all' but without giving up anything, then you need to spend some time here at Red Tail Ranch. It is a magical and restorative place, a 9000 year old registered archeological site - a milling site of the Oak Grove Indians - productive - the perfect place for an organic farm!
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The incredible views, the quiet, the darkness, the stars, the history, the energy, the magic!
