The space

Rest, recharge, compose a Golden Globe winning soundtrack, or just spend quality time with your family/friends!

This peaceful Ojai home/art space has a custom made Asian-style bed in the master bedroom, perfect for sleeping in on Saturday mornings. Second bedroom for massage or yoga, drumming practice or office/extra space as well. If your party is 4 people or a family, the queen sized bed in that room is comfortable and charming. Kitchen is stocked with cookware and dishes....If you choose to stroll the half block to Sunday Farmers Market and make something to eat- otherwise you are steps from the heart of downtown Ojai where a wide array of coffee shops, organic foods, Italian, Thai, Mexican, gourmet, sushi, pubs, pizza and a good old-fashioned ice cream store await. Walk to the movies (they start at seven hbars or tYes, there is a sweet kitty, (Beale) but she stays outside, so please don't let her in. Ojai was recently voted the #2 Top Small City in California, and you'll be able to appreciate everything it has to offer from this prime spot!

Kids/Families welcome :) Comfortable for 4 or a family.

Bring your golf clubs and play a round at Soule Park or the Ojai Valley Inn golf course. Or take a ten minute drive to the famous hot springs, walk up to hiking trails and get an "Easy A" view of the entire Ojai Valley.

Fabulous bodywork available onsite. Modalities include; but are not included to, Sports/Shiatsu/Swedish massage. $150/hour- You don't even have to leave the premises! Artwork for sale on site, so if you like it, ask about it! 

Stocked kitchen (regular cooking tools, dishes, glasses, etc), washer/dryer, fireplace, whole-house (website hidden) and Dvd player and Wi-fi (password will be provided) as well. SUMMER GUESTS PLEASE NOTE: Please note: The house stays cool with fans 90% of the year. For summer, there is an a/c unit in the master bedroom window with fan/temp control. (There isn't a box to indicate this on my end, so I had to mark yes on A/C. Sorry for any confusion this may cause you!

We live in the DIRECT center of downtown Ojai, and yet our guests regularly comment on how quiet and peaceful it is. One minute walk to Farmers' Market, and go to sleep listening to the crickets.

Easy access to Ojai Trolley, Ventura County Transit (Line #16 is 2 blocks away and runs hourly, see Gold Coast Transit for details) and a 2 minute or less walk to all of downtown Ojai.

We really just want you to relax and enjoy yourself in a peaceful, beautiful area. Less rules, more fun. Please help yourself to the lemons and (in season) loquats on the trees.

Interaction with guests

We are here in our own space when we are not visiting our families :) Miss Beale (friendly stub tailed puppy-style cat) is our mascot/welcome kitty, and Bao (say "Bow-wow") is our friendly new puppy, still learning his job) is our "security guard/entertainment/fitness coach". He is a young Rat Terrier/Chihuahua/Jack Russell/taquito with legs who is still learning his place in our "pack" & general duties/manners. He stays with us and is really a very good boy about 89% of the time.

Ojai, California, United States · Joined in May 2011

I'm a wedding planner/floral designer from the last small beach town in Southern California. My husband Robert is an amazing artist (he built the beds you'll be sleeping in and did most of the artwork you will find on the property) designer and sculptor, and he is a highly skilled massage/bodywork therapist with clients ranging from professional athletes to those in wheelchairs - and everyone in between! Please let us know if you would like to book a massage with him.

We love: Traveling (Hawaii is a big one, as we have family there, but we have been to Japan, Sweden, Denmark, Australia, England, Thailand, Cambodia, Costa (URL HIDDEN) name a few) the beach, watersports, volleyball, art, music, (good) design, Pixar movies, gardening (well, ONE of us does...I am much better at working with cut flowers..). We love traveling in the States as well, our big favorites are exploring our home California coast, San Francisco, Hawaii, Yosemite, Aspen Valley in Colorado, and the beaches anywhere we can find them.

Things I can't live without: English Tea, the latest book I'm reading, Thai or Indian (read: SPICY!) food, tempranillo, viognier, champagne, dark chocolate, my husband, Radiohead, our kitty Smalls/Bittle/Beale (she's not picky), our "JackRat" puppy Bao and my iPhone. Not in that order.

We spend quite a bit of time working on our 1928 California cottage house....Most recently, we added beautiful stone to our front porch and stairs, new stones my husband collected outside as hardscape, and a new collection of planter boxes to the grounds. It gets nicer all the time here, so come on back, something is sure to be different! Please ask if you like something, it may be available for purchase!

As hosts, the most frequent comment we hear is, "you need to raise your prices" - and our answer is, "nope". We want to provide you with an AMAZING experience & we love to give local recommendations, tips and things to do. What we want you to do as guests? Enjoy OJAI !! Get the appetizer, bottle of wine, souvenir from one of the local shops- that is why we keep our pricing as low as we possibly can. We are mindful of your needs, which may simply be for some much-needed down time.
