We stayed at the house for a retreat and it was perfect! We echo everyone else's glowing reviews about the location, the home, amenities and the hosts.
We rent vacation homes often and this has been one of our best experiences. The views are gorgeous, the decor tasteful, but comfortable, and we had all the amenities we wanted. Best of all, Lila was super helpful and responsive when we needed recommendations or had questions.
Lovely home geographically situated in the best part of Ojai. Comfortable, idyllic views, crisp country air...doesn't get any better.
Lila was really easy to get in touch with and left such thoughtful tips for things to do in the area. The house was perfect for a small group retreat, close to town, but isolated enough to feel like we were really away from things. Plus there were so many fun activities in the game room. Couldn't have been a cleaner more comfortable place to spend a few nights. We'll definitely go back!
Everything about Rancho Francese surpassed our expectations! From Lila's exceptional communication and detailed suggestions of "things in the area" to the magnificent furnishings, appointments, bedding, kitchen ware, you name it! The icing on the cake is the unbelievable yard, pool, hot tub, fire pit, outside kitchen and incredible! playroom with ping pong, basketball, foozball providing hours! of fun for kids and grown ups alike! It was hard to ever want to leave the property! We will be back. Thank you, a most memorable stay!
The Rancho Fancese was fantastic. We were in for a wedding at the Ojai Valley Inn and the house is very close by to the Inn and to downtown Ojai - just a short 5 minute drive. The house itself is a mini paradise. Very relaxing and peaceful, and all the amenities and comforts you will need. Will definitely be back.
Rancho Francese was amazing! There were 9 of us women who stayed there for a fun and relaxing weekend in Ojai, and the property was perfect. So many wonderful amenities made our stay incredibly comfortable, and Lila was very sweet and attentive (though once there we had the property 100% to ourselves - perfect!). Couldn't recommend this place more.
Family of 3 who love living in Southern California! We love Ojai and Palm Springs -laid back retreats where we can just "hang" and fall off the map for awhile...
