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.

Fabulous weekend retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is the 2nd time that our group of girlfriends have stayed at the Apple House, and we loved it even more this time ! The property is gorgeous. The house has everything you need, plus more. We never even left to explore Ojai - haha !

Keith & Janice are wonderful owners.

An incredible experience at a gorgeous home

  • 5 of 5

Keith and Janice were very hospitable, responsive and generous hosts. Their home has the most amazing pool, gorgeous property and cozy yet spacious. We loved everything about Ojai. The house is close enough to town yet removed when we wanted to have quiet time. It was the perfect house for us. We are very grateful for the experience and would definitely stay again.

The Apple House & Cottage getaway

  • 5 of 5

We all felt that the pictures of the property did not do it justice, that is was so much better. The house and the grounds are amazing, from the hammock up front in the strolling garden to the lovely rose garden near the pool, to the amazing house and kitchen. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen had everything and then some, we really wished we could have stayed longer and may look to make this an annual thing for our group.

The only things we didn't love were minor and not worth mentioning.

An exceptional home & experience

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay. The home was well equipped & beautifully maintained. We loved the property, the pool & and surrounding spaces.

Great communication from the hosts prior to and during our stay. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable before we had even arrived.

Map

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.
