  • Where to start.... Well start by booking this amazing place!! ALL of my high expectations were exceeded. We arrived on Saturday and never left! Carol greeted us, showed us around a bit and then we had complete privacy and the most romantic, relaxing and enjoyable 3 days. I can't think of a place in the World I would have rather been. The RV is equipped with literally everything we could have possibly needed and so much more. Carol truly goes out of her way to accomadate EVERY guest and specific to the little bit she may know ahead of time. She knew I was looking for a romantic getaway with April and she had hearts hanging from a tree with an amazing double hammock under the tree with rolled up blankets and pillows. All of the little touches like this would be too many to list so please just go experience this for yourself and know you will be shocked and you will be patting yourself on the back for the amazing find on Airbnb!! Ojai is such an amazing little town, we stopped for a little lunch, went for a walk and did some shopping at one of the little corner markets. We were glad we stopped in Ojai on the way in because we did not want to leave the farm for anything!! There are great areas for walking, hiking etc. The river area and swimming hole are beautiful and the walking/hiking is very easy and accessible. We are so grateful to our amazing hosts and look forward to many returns in the future! Will be returning with the kids soon!!!

  • Carol and docs place was described as a wilderness retreat and that's exactly what the surroundings were like. Absolutely beautiful and completely private. We needed to get away from "city life" and decompress. The moment we arrived you notice the only sounds you hear are of wildlife or the breeze thru the trees. No cars or voices. Staying in the RV was certainly nothing like roughing it. Awesome accommodations loaded with cool features. What made it really special was Carols attention to detail in setting up the kitchen and the lovely outside sitting areas. You honestly want for nothing. The bed was super comfy and the hammock wonderful for naps. Carol and Doc were great hosts who took the time to answer all questions and even gave us guided tour to the private swimming hole with their three awesome super friendly dogs. They were great hosts who made you feel so welcome. We will definitely be staying again hopefully soon. A beautiful place in which to recharge your batteries.

  • My boyfriend and I reserved the RV for two nights over Valentines weekend and could not have been more satisfied. This remote getaway was exactly what we were looking for and what we needed. Carol and Doc were very accommodating, friendly and even decorated the tree in front of the RV as well as the living space with hearts for the occasion which was such a nice surprise. We took a walk to a near by river bed and we felt like we were the only ones around for miles. The RV was cozy and we loved watching movies in bed while hearing the Coyotes and Owls in the distant. Would recommend and will stay again.

  • We had a wonderful second visit to Sespe Retreat! You can't beat such a remote and beautiful spot, with great hosts, and the RV is luxurious and always very clean and well stocked. We love watching the "pink moment" sunsets and having campfires at night, and watching the sun rise over the mountains in the morning. Awesome!

  • What an amazing place!! Carol and Doc have created a dream escape for themselves and others with this amazing property in the middle of a national park. They have thought of everything - from the well-equipped RV to the outdoor fire pit to the hammock for 2! We had a blast - and especially loved adopting their three dogs for the weekend. Felt like home!

  • Carol and Doc (and their 3 cute dogs) were gracious hosts to their Ojai RV retreat. They made us feel welcome, showed us the ropes and then gave us space to do our thing. The RV was fully equipped, clean and had a lot of nice touches (an awesome study in small space living). There is a house nearby in the back that is apparently occasionally occupied if that matters to you but we were fine with it. It got cold at night, but the bonfires kept us warm and the stars were incredible. I'd highly recommend this spot for anyone who wants to get away from the city for a few days in a glamping kind of way!

  • Recently stayed for a 2nd time at Carol's remote mountain retreat and I foresee many more stays to come. Excellent location, peaceful surroundings, perfect accommodations. Carol keeps the space so clean, nice and welcoming. Book today!

  • Amazing is the best word that I can find to describe the weekend that we had at Carol and Doc's Little Piece of Heaven :)

    Beautiful views and accommodations were just what the doctor ordered (and the Blackhawks game on the satellite didn't hurt either) and did they deliver. Carol and Doc's trailer had everything that we needed and then some. Word of advice to other guests ... don't try to light the LED candles. Use the remote instead! :)

    We have already booked our next visit and are counting the days!

  • Carol's place was perfect! I read all the other reviews before I booked and they were all spot on. Clean and quiet and the absence of cell phone service allowed us to absorb the peace and tranquility to its utmost. And we loved their dogs. Can't say enough about the place. Don't miss out on this gem. Thanks again Carol and Doc!

  • At Carol and Doc's sanctuary, we were able to recharge and reconnect. The RV is surprisingly comfortable and spacious. We saw the Milky Way and many shooting stars every night. Can't wait to go back soon.
