About this listing
Beautiful private room with a fireplace on the upstairs of our home. This old house was once featured on the lifestyles of the rich and famous. The house is about a 15 minute drive to Ventura in one direction and Ojai in the other direction.
Country setting with hiking nearby, and the beach nearby. The cities of Ventura, Santa Barbara, and Ojai are nearby.
Short distance to Lake Casitas.
We rent to couples only.
Please look at the calendar for reduced pricing on some nights.
We are primarily renting the room upstairs which is pretty much self-contained except for cooking facilities. You are welcome to store things in the refrigerator and kitchen. However, we would prefer you don't plan to use the kitchen for cooking.
We may ask to see and/or photograph your Drivers License or ID on arrival.
Interaction with Guests
We are glad to help you find the things and places you want to enjoy your stay.
We are very close to Highway 33, about 1/2 between Ventura and Ojai. Our street is a dead end road and there is a 35 acre camp next door. At the end of the street is a county parks hiking dirt road which goes for about 11 miles.
Across the Highway is the Ventura River and the bike path which runs from Ventura to Ojai. This is about a 5 minute walk from the house.
There is a bus stop less than 1/4 of miles from the house.

We were greeted by Eva's warm smile and welcoming energy. She led us through the Pink House and it easily lived up to its online images - cozy, comfortable and private. We quickly dubbed the room, our tree house. Scott was equally as welcoming and we shortly discovered how well connected he was to the community; even knowing the party we'd come to Ventura to visit - a true 6 degrees of separation experience. We imagine anyone who is drawn to Villa Rosa will be pleased by the accommodations and the hosts. Thank you Scott and Eva.
Beautiful home. Scott was very welcoming and warm. Nice stay with a comfortable bed and nice view from the room.
The experience at Villa Rosa was just perfect! Eva and Scott were friendly, discrete and extremely helpful, giving us a lot of suggestions about how to enjoy the surroundings and even leaving update notes for when we woke up! The bed was very comfortable, the room and the bathroom a romantic dream, private and quite. Thank you very much Eva and Scott!
Scott & Eva were great. I wanted to book last minute for a Valentine's trip for my girlfriend & I. Scott hopped on the phone with me and figured it out. He even called Airbnb to figure out some technical issues which weren't allowing me to book.
On arriving, Scott and his pup, Charlie greeted us. Scott showed us around the house, gave us a key, and showed us our bedroom. The bedroom was awesome- it is at the top of the house and has it's own bathroom which includes an amazing jacuzzi. Also, you have a private outdoor patio area.
Scott also had some magazine and recommendations for places to visit in Ojai. We ended up trying an awesome vegan place - The Farmer & the Cook- that was highly recommended by Scott. They have the best smoothies. I also happened to run into Scott there after we checked out of the house.
All in all, it's a great place with great people. Scott can tell you all about the hiking trails, the lake that is close by, and where to eat.

About the Host, Scott & Eva
My wife and I stayed at many AIRBNB's on a recent trip to Europe. We liked our experience so much we decided to offer our house for travelers. For “old people”, almost 60 we are young at heart. We are professionals, both of us are accountants, CPA’s, and my wife also practices law. I am also a jazz and classical trumpet player and my wife is a singer. We love to walk and there is great hiking right out our driveway. We would love to share the great places of this area with you.
