About Keith Robinson

I grew up in the nearby town of Santa Paula although I have spent my adult life in Northern California. The Apple House is our home away from home, a true family retreat. A place where we escape life's fast pace, and enjoy the company of our family and friends.

Why Keith Robinson chose Central Coast

This property is truly magical. Upon arriving you will be awed by its beauty and tranquility. Each room is warm and welcoming. Designed with many entertaining areas like the covered front porch and the large pool area. Spacious enough to host a group yet intimate enough to find your own 'secret place' to enjoy the peace and quiet.

What makes this estate unique

Walk to town. Quiet and serene.

Spacious and comfortable

We loved staying in the house. It is centrally located in Ojai and has a beautiful piece of property. It's enormous and perfect for a big group or multiple families. Hosts were efficient and helpful.

A fantastic property to enjoy with family and friends.

  • 5 of 5

The property is expansive and well kept. Plenty of space inside and out. A nice back yard with a pool and a fantastic game room in the garage where you can play pool, foosball, darts and ping pong. The bed rooms are very nice and the back cottage is very quaint. A great spot for a family reunion or a couples retreat. Nearby downtown but nestled in the hills. A beautiful property!

Gorgeous and well equipt house perfect for a large family or group of friends!

  • 5 of 5

First let me say that I think there is "grade inflation" in vrbo/Airbnb/Yelp reviews. I've often stayed at places where all of the reviews talked about how amazing the property is to arrive and find it dirty, or cheap linens or no cooking supplies. This was not the case here! Everything was absolutely perfect. The pictures do not do the house justice. It made for a perfect spot for my sisters 50th birthday trip with some girlfriends, but would also be perfect for a couple of families. I can not recommend the home more highly! Thank you for everything!

Our experience with Keith and Janice was wonderful! From the beginning they were very responsive in answering all of our questions. Upon arrival, they called to check in and ensure we had everything we needed. The house was clean and the perfect size for our girls weekend. The backyard with the pool, gardens, and fire pit were simply beautiful. I look forward to returning to the Apple House & Cottage the next time I visit Ojai.

Beautiful home with amazing private gardens.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this spacious and beautifully maintained private home. The grounds were expansive and the plants were so well cared for- it had us all taking notes. There were many comfortable places to lounge including the fire pit that is poolside, amazing porch that feels like an outdoor living room, the game room with a pool and ping pong table and the hammock in the garden. The beds were very comfortable, the kitchen had everything we needed and the owner was immediately available and helpful (when we accidentally locked ourselves out ;-) ). I was there with 2 childhood friends (the house is bigger than we needed) and we really enjoyed the property and all the things it had to offer. The owners left a lovely welcome basket for us with champagne, local coffee and snacks, very thoughtful. I highly recommend staying at the Apple House & Cottage.

Absolutely beautiful home! Exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for our annual girls weekend, and for our whole group it was our first time in Ojai. This is absolutely the sweetest, most charming home - the pictures don't do it justice! So lovely. There were 8 of us and plenty of space. Beautiful gardens to enjoy from the front porch and backyard. The owners were very responsive, gave us great restaurant recommendations (LOVED Azu and Knead!) and even welcomed us with a basket of wine and snacks. We couldn't have enjoyed ourselves more, and definitely plan on coming back! Thank you so much.

Car: necessary

The Apple House is so wonderful you may never want to leave. If you do feel the urge to explore wider afield, many of our guests take day trips to Los Angeles for the various theme parks like Disneyland, Universal Studios or Magic Mountain. Or take a short drive to Santa Barbara for all it has to offer: Santa Barbara Zoo, World Class Dining, Outstanding Beaches. My personal favorite is the beach at Santa Claus Lane in Carpenteria. This beach offers surfing lessons and many little boutiques and restaurants as well - worth the 20 minute drive. A must for first time Ojai visitors is the 2 mile family friendly hike along the Ridge Trail located at the tip of Signal Street. Enjoy a cool morning walk along this trail. Bring your camera for the breathtaking views of the Ojai Valley. Then finish your walk and stop in town for coffee and a stroll down down the famous Arcade or a rest in Libbey Park. If you're in town on Sunday morning do not miss the Farmers Market. Search out BD's vegetable stand. His farm is located a stones throw from The Apple House. For biking enthusiasts there are two local bike stores where you can rent bikes and accessories. A paved bike path leads you all the way to Ventura or if mountain biking is your thing ask the bike store to recommend a suitable trail. We do have some bikes on property.
