About the property

A Private, 3-Bedroom, 2-Bathroom Retreat With Unbeatable Views And Charm

Welcome to The Ojai View House! This peaceful retreat nestled amongst the trees offers the best of all worlds - breath-taking views of the Ojai Valley through walls of glass, privacy and seclusion, and a five minute drive to vibrant downtown Ojai.

From the gorgeous, one-in-a-million views of the valley to the feeling of calm that washes over you in the quiet hillside location, this retreat was built to rest your mind and restore your soul.

This charming 60s ranch home (no stairs!) contains spacious rooms and a wonderfully easy layout with almost 2000 square feet of house. Watch the gorgeous sunrise and sunsets from the two outdoor patios lining the house (and keep an eye out for the local deer that like to stop by the yard!). Or, if you feel like staying in, watch the sunsets just as easily from the large living room or sunroom/office. For those of you who want to get cozy, put a vintage LP (Dean Martin? Opera? John Denver?) on the available record player in the living room or pop a movie into the DVD player and relax. There's even an organ in the living room for those who are feeling musically inspired. For the readers in the group, the bookcase in the sunroom/office is well stocked full of books of all kinds, from fun pulp novels to political discourses on historical world leaders.

Each of the spacious bedrooms has a wonderfully calm atmosphere conducive to getting some real rest. The master bedroom has a king bed with a sliding door directly to the outdoor patio. The two guest bedrooms each have queen beds and their own overhead fans to produce a light, cool breeze should you want it.

For your meals, enjoy a luxurious breakfast from the fun breakfast area off the kitchen or, if you choose, host a formal dinner in the separate dining room. Views continue to amaze from both eating areas.

The Ojai View House is truly a one-of-a-kind space that will help create many wonderful memories. We hope you keep coming back and make it a tradition.

About Sarah Scott

Hi, my name is John and I've been coming to Ojai for many years now. I find the beautiful countryside mixed with local arts and culture to be unique. The short drive from LA (1.5 hours) to Ojai is also a huge benefit, making it easy for me to "get away from it all" without dealing with lots of painful traffic.

Why Sarah Scott chose Ojai

While I've been coming to Ojai for a while now, it took me a while to find the "right" house. I love this particular home because it has that amazing view while still being close to downtown Ojai. In addition, driving up the hill along this beautiful residential street (maybe the most charming street in Ojai!) always brings a smile to my face.

Perfect house for our stay

  • 5 of 5

Some friends and I spent a week in Ojai cycling the beautiful mountainous routes in the area, and this house was the perfect base for our stay. The view is as good as the photos suggest, and the large quiet yard was a great spot to relax after a long ride. The house itself is larger than we expected, with ample space for everyone and their luggage in the common rooms and bedrooms, and was a short 5 minute drive (down a rather steep hill) into the town of Ojai.

Sarah (the property manager) was very friendly, provided helpful tips for food, drinks and sightseeing, and was very easy to get a hold of when we had questions.

Overall it was a great stay, and I would gladly stay here again in the future.

Beautiful Views, great space and comfortable stay!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had an amazing stay at this house for my 30th birthday getaway. I loved that the location provide a scenic and relaxing view to wake up to and there was a great outdoor and indoor space that we could relax at. Even though it's at the top of the hill, it was a very fast 8 minute drive to downtown Ojai which made driving back and forth between the house and downtown activities very easy.

The house was more spacious than what I imagined from the pictures and I was very thankful for the responsiveness of the property manager during my booking process. I also appreciated the amenities that they provided like the coffee and shower essentials. Even though we brought our own, it's nice to know there's extra if we run out! I hope to stay again for my next trip!

Gorgeous view, comfortable, well appointed and not too fancy.

  • 5 of 5

We were in Ojai for a memorial for my husband's brother. There were six of us - me and my husband, our daughter, son-in-law and their 16-year-old daughter (our granddaughter), and my husband's sister who was in charge of many of the decorations for the memorial. The house was big enough to spread out the photos and flowers and arrange them in a logical order. There were two nice bathrooms located in between each of the three bedrooms, and lovely places to sit outside to enjoy the amazing view. Plenty of pots, pans, dishes to make healthy meals for all of us in between goings and comings. It is a wonderful place to stay "above the world" in aa peaceful, magical setting. Highly recommended.
