The Ojai Valley is nestled between coastal mountains with awe inspiring views and only 25 minutes from the ocean. The Studio sits in a rare downtown location on a quiet tree-lined street just a block from the best part of downtown. Parking your car once and not moving it all weekend is easy to do.

We are green friendly! To lessen our carbon foot print a few things we do are solar electric, green cleaning supplies and refillable dispensers for our organic Shea butter lotion, shampoo and body wash. We also provide reusable bags to use for local shopping (Ojai is a bag free city).
Ojai is situated an hour north of Los Angeles county and 25 minutes south of Santa Barbara county. Located up off the 101 freeway. This valley is bordered by several mountain ranges Topa Topa, Los Padres National Forest and Black Mountain are a few. It's a lush valley who's east end is filled with with citrus and olive groves. The city's downtown is anchored by a beautiful 1917 Spanish Colonial Revival arcade filled with local stores and restaurants. It's a unique little town that has not allowed chain stores in so that local merchants can thrive. The spirit of the Old West lives here with the freedom of interests & expression. There is always something to see and explore in Ojai.

This is the second time we have stayed at Pam and Rob's great little spot in Ojai. We love the way the house feels. It is decorated well, super clean and inviting, and a very short walk to restaurants and shops. I'd highly recommend this spot to friends and family!
Rob was so flexible and accommodating during our stay. We loved the studio... it was clean, well designed, with great light. The rainfall shower was a treat! The location is close to downtown Ojai so we were able to walk everywhere in town. Parking is also very easy! I wish I could have stayed for a few more days.
Everything about our stay was A+. Rob and Pam were excellent (and easy!) hosts, the location was perfect, and we loved, loved the layout and the design of the space. The chance to check into this spot again makes us want to come back to Ojai more than we already did!
A lovely centrally located space with a welcoming host.
Appreciated the detailed info guide and sprigs of rosemary and lavender - thank you!
We had a wonderful stay at Rob and Pam's place! It was our first time in Ojai and the studio was perfect - we were within walking distance to all of the downtown Ojai spots on our list (most just two blocks away). The studio was beautifully decorated, clean, and comfortable, and Rob and Pam supplied nice soaps, tea, and coffee. It was perfect for our needs. Rob stayed in communication throughout our stay and was incredibly accommodating. Will definitely stay here again next time we are in Ojai and would highly recommend!
Studio 203 has all that is needed for a complete relaxing and special getaway! From the light filled spaciousness, to the comfy bed, to the details such as palo santo wood incense, and cream for supplied coffee and tea…all allows for a feeling of home away from home but with a design’s eye that inspires. You will love that the studio is a light walk away from Rainbow Bridge Market and all the downtown Ojai shops and restaurants. It is private and quiet infused. Only one wall is shared with the main house yet professionally sound proof. I heard absolutely nothing from the main house. You really feel as though you have your own home right in the heart of all the Ojai charm. This is now my second stay and for sure I will come back for more. Rob, was a gentlemen. He communicated well and was there to greet me and make sure I had everything that I needed for a pleasant stay. I am grateful. My experience with 203 reminds me why Ojai is such a special place. Yes, nature did indeed bless the valley; however, it is really all about her people. They invite and share their love for the place they live! Thank you, Rob, for everything.
The perfect spot to stay in Ojai. Walking distance to pretty much everywhere you'd want to go on a weekend trip. The place was clean and newly renovated. Rob was very personable and had plenty of recommendations on food, shops, hikes and anything else you'd want to know about the town. My girlfriend and I got away form LA for her birthday and it was a great, relaxing weekend.
The only thing that caught me a little off guard was the fact that the unit is not a stand-alone space. It is connected to the rest of the house and there is another bedroom next to this space. His daughter and friends stayed in that room for the first night, but it wasn't an issue.
