You can grind your own coffee beans or make your tea with filtered water in the courtyard or an outside room. This room has a dining room table & four chairs, a TV, a refrigerator and single bed. It's also a lockable place for bikes.
Stay near downtown yet surrounded by a beautiful hiking areas right from your door. The hacienda is peaceful and comfortable.

The neighborhood provides pleasant walks under tree-capopied streets. There are no street lights so that stars may be better appreciated.

Other Things to Note

Towels & bed linens are line-dried (therefore wrinkled). Organics when possible.
Have fun, laugh often until 10:00 p.m., then more quietly, pls. The suite is a wing of the house so you're not close to anyone, but it's a quiet neighborhood.
Please no pets or smoking on premises.

I can't seem to make the changes on the initial description, but there's a separate TV/dining room away from the suite.
Pls. leave dirty dishes, etc. on courtyard table.
Pls. put on your outside light when you won't be back until after dark.
Lora was a fabulous and gracious hostess and her rooms were like a home away from home. Would love to visit her again!
Could not have been more pleased. Our hostess, Lora, was wonderful, pleasant and more than accommodating. The lodging was perfect. The neighborhood was quiet, yet centrally located and easy to get to anywhere in Ojai. Beds were very comfortable. Rooms were small, but perfect for us.
I would strongly recommend this lodging.
Lora was a lovely host and made sure we had everything we needed. The Hacienda was a beautiful place to stay and its location for downtown Ojai is very convenient. We all really enjoyed our stay and were very comfortable.
Everything was amazing. Even before arriving, she is great with communication. We arrived late and she was very accommodating.
Lora is an amazing and sweet host. She had fresh squeezed juice ready and set out first thing in the morning. While the place is part of a hacienda, it is very private and feels like your own. It is within walking distance to town.
Lora is a wealth of knowledge about the town as well. Very sweet and super friendly.
Lora was the perfect host! She's welcoming and accommodating but also very respectful of our privacy. The property is unique and lovely replete with exotic flora and fauna; you'll feel like you're transported to another world! I traveled with my family and daughter's 10th birthday happened to fall on the Saturday we arrived. Lora presented her with a beautiful journal for collecting and pressing flowers which was the perfect souvenir for our trip. She loved it! (Thank you Lora!) Don't forget to go to Meditation Mount the vistas are heavenly. We would love the chance to stay here again!
I am so happy to have found this little piece of heaven! Our stay was perfect. Very relaxing after a week of hectic. Lora is an amazing hostess, everything you might need is there. The space is very comfortable and quiet, the beds were very comfortable. Lora is very thoughtful, and goes above and beyond. From fresh squeezed orange juice in the morning to fresh fruit and fresh cut flowers in the immaculate rooms. I definitely would recommend her space, I would for sure go back. Ojai is a great little town, lots of hiking trails and sights to see or just browse the shops.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Lora. The grounds are lovely and the home is built around the large patio,
Mexican style. The patio has a beautiful fountain and there's a hammock and chairs to lounge in. We had our coffee out there each morning and one evening we enjoyed some wine. Lora takes good care of you, providing coffees, teas, milk, cereal and delicious local fruit; even fresh squeezed orange juice from her tree in the morning!The beds are soft and comfy and the bathroom is cheerful and bright. We never wanted to leave! We will definitely return to stay at Lora's Hacienda. Thank you for your warm hospitality, Lora! ❤️❤️❤️
