Many things are within walking distance and we do have bikes for guests to borrow. The Ojai Trolley goes from Meiners Oaks to downtown Ojai.

See "Meiners Oaks Retreat" on the internet for more pics and info. Please note, all reservations must be booked through airbnb.

In an effort to make the place the best retreat possible, it is currently going through some renovations. There are some renovation materials still on site. We make every effort to work around bookings to keep the place as comfortable and quiet as possible for our guests.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The place was great! I had about 14 people there for a birthday weekend and still had room. There is fun quirky vibe to the place and plenty of interesting nooks and crannies. We had a lot plans in the area, but ended up mostly (email hidden) and going to the Deer (email hidden) with great live music around the corner. The neighbors are a bit closer than we expected and they did have some dogs that barked a lot, but we were hanging out outside till fairly late and they never complained. It was a wonderful spot for a large group of friends!

  • I had about 10 friends come and stay for my birthday weekend. We had a great time! Most of my friends live in LA or the Bay so somewhere in between was perfect to meet up. We rented the whole place and still had beds to spare. We brought our own BBQ and Saturday- despite plans to head to the lake- we just threw blankets & chairs down on the surprisingly lush grass and hung out on the "compound"!
    The kitchen was spacious enough for making meals and hanging out, the beds were comfortable, and there are so many bathrooms it couldn't be more convenient.
    Didnt try the squat-hot but the billiards table was fun and we spent most of the evenings around the fire-pit in the front yard. (we brought plenty of our own firewood.)
    Once you enter the gates it is truly like your own secret garden. This was the perfect setting for my birthday. I wanted to have a camping weekend but this place allowed the same laid back and easy going environment as camping- with the conveniences of beds and indoor (and outdoor) plumbing.
