My husband and I stayed at Maida's place right after getting married in Ventura. We came in March while the pixies trees were blooming and the fragrance all over Ojai was intoxicating. We enjoyed the pool during the day and used the fire pit outside at night so we could have dinner under the stars. The house had absolutely everything we needed and was far away enough from town that it was quiet and secluded. We will definitely be back!

Such a wonderful, relaxing spot! We truly enjoyed our time at Maida's place. Perfect location, great for bike rides, lounging at the pool, leisurely dinners on the patio. The casita was the perfect size for us (2 adults, 1 toddler, 1 dog) and had everything we needed. Maida offered up some great recommendations, and was a warm host. Would happily stay here again!

We stayed for a short 2 nights, but had a relaxing and quiet weekend in the cottage. It was extremely comfortable, with everything you might need for a weekend getaway. The cottage is well located along a quite country lane, close to town, shopping, and restaurants. The drive in was amazing after all the rain we've had. The citrus blossoms were in full bloom and the smell in the air was amazing. Wildflowers for days, and a buzz of life that only added to our trip. We'll definitely be back, and highly recommend this little oasis.

We loved Maida's charming little casita; it is so peaceful there! The location was good--not walking distance to downtown, but a very easy drive, and it's very quiet and lovely out there. We had a great stay, and Maida was very helpful and communicative.

Lovely, well equipped casita in a quiet setting near orange groves. A perfect place for a retreat or to relax and unwind. A 5-minute drive to town.
