Studio sleeps 2. Maximum occupancy 4, non smoking. Pets must be supervised at all times.
We had planned a last minute weekend getaway and Maida graciously accommodated us. Everything was great for a relaxing and serene vacation. This was our first trip with our 7 month-old puppy and Maida's place was perfect for pets. Lot's of open space and areas to walk. We spent a lot of time on the porch and in the pool. A lovely weekend getaway spot.
This is the perfect getaway. Thanks Maida for having everything set up so well for us. She is always a quick email away even when she is not present on the property. Wifi worked flawlessly and the kitchen is very well stocked. Best of all, we spent hours on the porch, in the hammock, in front of (and in) the pool. A lovely weekend trip.
Maida'a place was great. It's located in a quiet area just outside downtown, perfect for those that want some privacy. The guest house was very clean and has all the amenities you'll need. Maida had everything ready for me when I arrived and made sure I was Ok during my stay. I would definitely recommend this gem if you plan to visit Ojai. Thanks Maida!
Maida's place is a little slice of heaven on earth. Cozy, clean, quiet and super comfortable. The fireplace and hammock made for an extra relaxing stay. Tucked in an oasis of nature with mountains in the background and green all around. Only a few mins drive into town. I loved it so much I extended my stay and definitely plan to come stay again. Maida was also very kind and helpful in making suggestions of great local spots and happenings to check out. Fav airbnb rental so far!
The host and location were most welcoming! The house is comfortable, and located in the most beautiful part of Ojai.
Peaceful and relaxing. All the amenities were included in the house, including coffee, robes, and a well-stocked kitchen.(supplies). Very private.
Host and location were very inviting and friendly!
Serene and wondeful! My husband and I had an excellent mini-retreat at Maida's place. We lounged, relaxed, and recharged. My husband really liked the fact that he could move from the table to the lounge chair, and to the hammock as he did his reading and journaling.
The space is quiet and set back from the house. Maida has set up all the amenities that you need and will even find a local masseuse to give you a rub down if you need it! She's also very responsive when you need her to be.
Everything was perfect about this place and we're looking forward to our next retreat here!
What an absolutely incredible vacation and retreat! Maida was an exceptional host who was generous, kind and caring. Her casita is full of all the amenities we wanted and needed. The fireplace was indeed a plus! When we arrived Maida met us brimming with a huge smile, hugs and ready to show us around the place. She also provided heaps of great tips of places to see, eat and enjoy. All of her recommendations were superb including a wonderful massage we had with Angelica. Was absolutely one of the best vacations we have had. Maida was attentive just enough. She was there when we needed her and really made sure to respect our solitute. She was truly an amazing host.
We will certainly be back again. She helped us to fall in love with Ojai and with her home and her love. We are so incredibly grateful. Thank you dearly Maida:).

About the Host, Maida
My Cuban and Chinese roots has brought me to my beliefs that once you have shared a meal and stayed with me as a guest, you are inducted into " la familia". I have merged the intellectually curious and creative spirit of my Berkeley upbringing, the pura vida and Buddhist philosophies of my ancestors, and the movable feast lifestyle of my past travels.into my existence in Ojai. My last 17 years in Ojai have been incredibly joyful watching my three children evolve beautifully into young adults. I have had the pleasure of being involved in a health centered profession for over 26 years and now I'm penning my next chapter 2. I see travels again in the near future, physically and mentally challenging myself by getting out of my comfort zone, and actually completing a work of art I can be proud enough to hang, so many goals...... When I came onto my property in Ojai, I immediately dove into harvesting my olives to jar, making supplies of plum jam, baked muffins with fresh picked black berries, growing the "wow" organic garden, picking my table grapes off my vines, drying the lavender and rosemary on the property. Now I revel in the pleasure of watching natures creatures and visitors to my home enjoy the gifts of the fruits and flowers. Most of my weekly planning involves who to entertain and what seasonal fare we are to enjoy! The diversity of friends I am bless to call family provides me with the evening of entertainment. I'm am happily spoiled. As a creative and spiritual outlet I have opened my home and property to invite the alternative traveler into my world. I have designed and furnished my special spaces to be welcoming and peaceful. What I desire for my guests is to appreciate the natural surroundings of their stay, to embrace the peacefulness here to quiet their minds, to desire nothing because it's provided for them while they are here, and to leave with an authentic experience of Ojai to look upon until their next visit to my home.
