Interaction with guests
We see our guests less frequently now that we made the space separate from the rest of the house, (Sometimes they come and go without us ever crossing paths). We miss chatting with interesting people and making new friends as often as we did before but, overall, people seem to be happy with the trade-off of less socializing but more privacy. Our typical guests seem to be in town for an event or with a busy schedule and appreciate being able to come and go without having to explain themselves.
We do still get frequent requests for info on restaurants, hiking trails, etc and we're happy to provide that.
This is not a large property, but it is in a quiet neighborhood that backs up to a large ranch. There are only two streets that lead up the hill to our neighborhood and the few streets up here are dead-end or cul-de-sac. Very little traffic as generally no one comes up here except those who live here.
Amtak Pacific Surfliner stops in Ventura at the Ventura Co.Fairgrounds and buses run regularly up Hwy 33 from Ventura to Ojai. There is a bus-stop on the 2 lane hwy at the base of the drive that leads up the hill to our neighborhood. The Ojai/Ventura bike trail goes right by the base of our neighborhood.
The "house rules" are the usual common-sense considerations: no loud noises/music please; the space is closed-off from, but still connected to, the rest of the house so we'll do our best to use our "inside voices" and ask that you do the same. the space is a good-size bedroom, bath and connecting hallway; no access to the rest of the house so No smoking inside, of course. Be reasonably neat/clean, observe the check-out time (unless previously arranged). Please park at the curb directly in front of our house ( Limit 1 car please).
We were first attracted to Ojai when we started having children and were looking for a great place to live, with a small town feel. We love the outdoors and people with a sense of community, thus Ojai's been perfect for us for the last 36 years! We've been involved in education, music, theater, church , environmental concerns, and fun-raising for community betterment projects.
