Maida's lovely casita in Ojai is a great spot to relax and get away from it all. My husband and I spent the weekend here, and really enjoyed our stay. The house was comfortable and well-appointed. The kitchen is fully equipped, so we had everything we needed to make dinners at home. The seating area in the back is a great place to read, enjoy the famous Ojai light, and even have a fire in the fire pit when it cools down at night. Our dog also enjoyed rambling around this rustic property. Maida was a conscientious host and, though she was out of town, checked in with us to make sure all was well, which it was! Thanks, Maida!
"The guest house was the perfect little spot in Ojai for my boyfriend and I. The house was the epitome of Ojai, with a quaint outside porch area with a fireplace and table. There was a pool in the backyard that we had access to (shared with the main house) along with a BBQ. Maida was great; she was available to greet us upon arrival, answer any questions we had & also provided us with a few suggestions of things to do in the area. Nice little getaway house about 5 minutes from the downtown area where the majority of the restaurants and bars are. Overall, a fantastic experience!"
Maida was a wonderful host and very easy to get in touch with. She made us feel at home on her beautiful grounds which include a pool and lots of olive trees. The house is exactly as pictured and close to the center of Ojai.
Our stay in Ojai was fantastic! Maida was very accommodating and welcoming. The room was quaint, peaceful, and beautiful. It would be great to see her and stay with her and her family in the future.
Arrival at the casita went perfectly. The instruction gave us all the information we need to have a serene time. Nestled amongst orange groves outside Ojai, the "Magical" space was exactly as described. Lovely ammenities throughout. Fresh eggs at the ready and acres of quiet in all directions. The space was clean and cool with perhaps the worlds best ceiling fan. Sparkling linens and wonderful robes for lounging. I would definetly stay again and will pass along Maida's info to friends. Well done.
Maida is so warm and friendly, we felt so welcomed. The place was better than the pictures. The air everywhere smelled of orange blossoms, which were in bloom, it was quiet and incredibly relaxing. We loved sitting on the patio and having a glass of wine. Maida recommended a spot for us to watch the sunset that was magical. She also recommended some yummy restaurants. We had such a great time!!
We had a wonderful time at Maida's place in Ojai! She was the perfect host -- sweet, open, communicative and welcoming. The Oasis is just that. We swam in the pool, breakfasted in the sun and had three relaxing, beautiful days. We would return in a heartbeat!

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.
