About Joshua Moreau
Howdy, I'm a full time musician. I'm usually traveling for work, but if I'm not, I'm working on music or art in some capacity. I really enjoy getting to know cool people, classic movies and good food. If you're planning on hanging out in the area, please stay!
Joshua Moreau purchased this House in 2015
Why Joshua Moreau chose Ojai
This property is really peaceful and private. The backyard deck has an awesome relaxing vibe. The location is great and a car is not needed if you plan on staying in the Meiner's Oaks area. There's a trolley stop only a few blocks away if you want to get around Ojai.
What makes this House unique
I fell in love with this place for a variety of reasons. The spacious deck has the coolest vibe. I love the privacy provided by the vine covered fence surrounding the front yard. I can be quite reclusive coming home from international tours so I've made the kitchen and living room a substantial sanctuary with a vast array of cooking tools and modern entertainment options. The living room has a great view of the oak tree shaded yard and breathtaking mountains.

Nice 2 bedroom in a quiet neighborhood
This classic was easy to find, had comfortable beds, what you would hope for in the kitchen, and even some eggs which were a big help since we left early the morning after we arrived to go out to the Painted Cave at Santa Cruz Island which was just amazing. It was nice to be able to walk to breakfast at The Farmer and the Cook. Loved Papa Lennon's for pizza - good gluten free and nicely original pies. And the drive over 33 back to I-5 is not to be missed. The back deck was nice for eating our pizza and drying out wetsuits, and this was a more affordable place for 3 of us to stay in this area.
This house is a great spot for a small group!!
This house is a wonderful home in a great neighborhood that is perfect for a small group (3-4).
The amenities are top notch and Josh is a wonderful person to work with! The house is far enough away from the "main drag" in Ojai so that you can enjoy the peace and quiet there in the foothills, but close enough that you can bike ride to the downtown area in just a few minutes. The backyard area is very well done with the lovely wood decks and comfortable lawn furniture, a built in picnic bench for meals outdoors (and an attached "bar counter" for use in pre-meal socializing/snacking), as well as a truly outstanding combination grill/smoker for cooking all sorts of wonderful meals. We cooked up wonderful halibut steaks, trip tip, and chicken breasts, and if we had been better planners, could have smoked some salmon too!
Great house & host
It is obvious Josh cares about his home and wants your stay to be a great one. The house was clean and uncluttered, stocked with the essentials. He was responsive and thorough with all the instructions. The house was newly remodeled and decorated in a pleasing and comfortable retro-organic-minimalist vibe. The street itself has a mish-mash of houses, but it was very quiet and just a couple miles away from downtown. I highly recommend staying here!
Cozy Ojai Nest
My girlfriends and I were looking for the perfect place to rest and catch up, and we found it at this place. Josh has decorated it in a way that is both aesthetically pleasing and comfortable. The location of the property is perfect for getting into town. The community surrounding the house had such a down-home country feel. Neighbors saying hi to us when we walked around. Josh's place has comfortable beds, great kitchen gear for making food, and a clean decor. We spent a lot of time on the cute back patio, with comfy chairs and dining table. There was even an emergency shampoo/conditioner kit in the bathroom for the few of us ladies who forgot our own! Thanks Josh!
Comfortable, Beautifully Appointed Home
This is a lovely home with a well stocked kitchen with all new appliances, comfortable beds and bedding and a great living area. We enjoyed watching the Olympics on the 65" screen TV with surround sound, as well playing a few of the house stocked board games. Both bedrooms also have flat screen TVs.
We especially enjoyed the wonderful deck area. We cooked on the new BBQ grill one evening and enjoyed dinning outside under the decorative lights and stars, twice. There is an outdoor eating table, complete with table runner, cloth napkins and candles, lounge chains and cushioned chairs with ottomans for reading, sunning and general relaxation.
This home is well situated, within walking distance of numerous hiking trails and delicious food choices, which we also visited. The only drawback was the home only had 1 1/2 bath, but we did not find this to be an issue when on vacation. Our family would stay there again, in a heartbeat! Thank you Joshua, for sharing your home with us!
We had a fantastic stay!
My grown children and I rented the home recently and I only have wonderful things to say about the property. The whole house was immaculate, well-appointed and really comfortable. We loved the high ceilings, the tile floor and the large windows and sliding doors. The kitchen had EVERYTHING we needed and we cooked A LOT. We loved eating at the dining area table, at the little bar area and of course, on the LARGE patio and deck. The deck is like a home itself - it is HUGE with many chairs, benches, umbrellas and walking, stretching space. We turned on the small lights over the outdoor table and had great evening meals out there. It was so relaxing to take meals outdoors and to lie on the benches looking up at the stars at night. The bedrooms were comfortable, the beds in great shape and all linens were of good quality. We slept perfectly. We love the Dodgers, so watching the games on the huge screen T.V. was enjoyable. The neighborhood is quiet, with a little noise from passing cars, but overall very, very tranquil. We did not meet Joshua, but he responded quickly to any question we had. Everything we wanted to see was within 15-20 minutes by car. We went to Meditation Mount (wow) and the Tova Mountain winery, hiking and to Bart's Books. Joshua has taken a great deal of time and attention to make sure everything you could need is provided. I highly recommend this property!
