Interaction with Guests
We usually greet each guest personally but sometimes we are under a deadline and have to keep working. We would love to give you a tour of the farm if you'd like. We will interact with you as much as you like. Some guests want to be more private and we respect that. The motor home is away from the main houses and it is very private.
Our farm is in a country setting but city life is only 5 miles away. There is a little country store just up the road too. Foster Park and Lake Casitas are very close for picnics or cookouts. We no longer can allow fires on the property.
We are just 1/2 mile from the highway. There is also a bus line by the highway.
There is a nice bike/walking path that goes North to Ojai or South along the Ventura River to the beach and on to the Ventura marina.
Other Things to Note
We don't use any chemicals on the farm. The motor home is cleaned with non-toxic essential oils.
Happy people around. Come breathe easy and relax!
No smoking ANYWHERE on the premises and no campfires. Please drive slowly on the driveway as there are two not so street smart dogs present. Since this is a working farm we all have to rise early. We ask that you be quiet after 10:00 PM. You will be given the gate code and may come and go as you please but if you do come in late please be quiet. This motor home will be our retirement home, please treat it with respect.
Please no feminine products down the toilet.
The water comes from our well and is very good.
The motor home was very quaint and relaxing, a definite adventure from the normal hotel room. The amenities left were very considerate of potential needs/desires (fresh fruit and chocolates). The beds comfortable, instructions without fail and cleanliness spot on.
We loved staying in Ann and Andy's motor home. It was cozy, well stocked, and clean: a perfect birthday adventure! The ducks, the horse, and the open space on their Dahlia farm, were perfect entertainment for our son who lives in a world terrified of unplugging!
Look forward to returning one day soon to enjoy their tented gazebo and an outdoor meal (and perhaps a little music and conversation with Ann & Andy!)
After three weeks of being on the road in California, we can honestly say that our stay on the farm with Ann and Andy was the most memorable thus far on our six-week journey through California. Our seven-year-old daughter did not want to leave, Which was not unexpected but certainly hoped for. Ann and Andy were excellent host. We wanted to stay in a camper for the experience and certainly got that. It's not for everyone, but the overall experience on the farm is quite unique. It is a lovely and peaceful place and you could not ask for better hosts.
I loved my stay at this unique property. The farm is rather charming. I enjoyed fresh eggs from the farm in the morning. What a special treat!
Ann and Andy were very welcoming, and provided a perfectly furnished home. The motor home is a cozy space, with two beds, and is situated on a working flower farm!
Ann and Andy were very hospitable at their wonderful farm. We loved the peace and quiet, the animals and the delicious duck eggs that Ann brought to us. They very kindly leave provisions for guests to make use of in the fully functioning kitchen. The RV was comfortable and spotless. This was a unique and delightful experience that I would be very happy to re-visit - highly recommended!
Well, if you want an interesting and unique experience, you should check out Ann and Andy's organic flower farm. Our visit with two young grandsons, Owen & Theo (10&8), turnout to be one of the highlights of our trip to Legoland in Carlsbad, Ca.
If you are comfortable with RV accommodations (not the Ritz or one room hotel) that has everything you need including a plethora of beverages, fresh fruits, endless coffee variety, and more, then you will enjoy this rural working farm retreat. The boys quickly found the DVD player for their nighttime entertainment. During the daytime they discovered interests not found in city life ---- the ducks, the chickens, the horse (and Andy's favorite - the gophers).
And speaking of Andy, here is a truly interesting man with a wealth of knowledge on organic gardening and healthy, biodiverse soils. He is in the forefront of what's needed to change soils back naturally to their original health. I enjoyed my time with him.
All an all, my wife Mary an grandsons had a great time.
