  • The Perfect Ojai Retreat!

    "With family flying in from all over for Christmas, we needed a getaway from LA that would house us all, enchant us with its natural beauty, and provide activities for everyone (ages 2-80). This was it. The house and guesthouse were ideal -- beautifully maintained and thoughtfully decorated and equipped, this estate met all of our needs. From the bunk room (with stuffed animals and coloring books included) to the outdoor dining area (with heat lamps) where we could sit for each meal and watch the changing light on the hills, there was no part of the home that we didn't simply embrace. We spent long evenings by the fire place in the main house (ample cut wood to be found right outside), cooked each of our meals in the large, central kitchen, and found abundant privacy in the away room (with a large tv) or in each of the bedroom suites. We made extensive use of the hot tub and pool (which were new and really felt it), played basketball on the large, private driveway, and walked the grounds of this gorgeous property every day, plucking fruit from the trees with the blessing of the homeowner. Indeed, it was the relationship with the homeowner that really made the difference here. We've rented many houses through VRBO, but this vacation was really rather exceptional. Upon arriving, we were greeted with a gracious welcome basket, full of fresh-picked grapefruit, granola bars, and local guides to Ojai. At every turn, we felt the care and love of the homeowner for her home -- and the feeling that she was really interested in providing not just a place to stay but an experience for her guests, an experience that was meant to help us relax, explore, feel comfortable, have fun, and, ultimately, to let her home be our home. There is no going back to the Ojai Valley Inn for us -- the amenities, the privacy, the space, the views, the price all are superior here at this positively charming home, nestled into the hills above Ojai. It was the perfect retreat."

  • This stylish yet relaxed home is all I could wish for in a vacation getaway.

    "I loved staying at this beautiful home. It was so comfortable, and each attention to detail was impressive. It's location was ideal. I like to be a bit outside town but still convenient. The spread out layout and varying levels made it feel like a palace for my Aunt and I to get either get time to socialize or time to ourselves to relax. The only minor issue was something with Netflix, but i simply decided it wasn't a big deal and enjoyed reading a book or getting dinner in town. I definitely, like many others have said, would return here soon. Can't wait to show my husband. I even enjoyed my stay so much that I looked at real estate while I was there. Bravo. Lovely home that was a great little escape from LA, and a very manageable drive. Thanks!"

  • Peaceful retreat in Upper Ojai

    "We (4 adults & 2 kids) had a lovely time here - great location in Upper Ojai, peaceful, with nice views & very private. About 10 minutes outside downtown Ojai. The house was stocked with everything we needed, it is a little worn, but that added to the charm & everything worked as expected. Pool was refreshing. Communication with the host was easy. We'll be back!"

  • A Perfect Temporary Residence!

    "My husband, small pups and I have been guests at Merrihouse for an extended stay from July through September. The home is lovely, well maintained and stocked with everything needed for a longer visit. The full kitchen is great. Hubby appreciated the large TV and cable. All of us enjoyed the fenced, private yard with outdoor seating to relax and enjoy the beautiful Ojai weather. The perfect location is quiet and walkable to the village with its restaurants, shopping and services. Mary and Dave are terrific hosts. Mary is a delight to work with and super responsive. This is our third stay and we hope to return for future visits!"
