About this listing
Simple, well appointed 500 sf studio/barn located in the Mira Monte section of Ojai 5 minutes from downtown. The house is a converted barn and absolutely adorable. If privacy, quiet and charm are what you are looking for, this is the place for you.
Just a 5 minute drive to downtown Ojai and 15 minutes to the beach in Ventura, the house is a converted barn and absolutely adorable. It features high ceilings with ceiling fan (no A/C) and a very private yard. There is a kitchenette with a toaster-oven, hot-plate and mini-fridge. Wifi and cable television are included as is a comfy queen sized bed. This place is peaceful, quiet and very private. The perfect place to relax and clear your mind.
Guests have access to the entire house/barn, old school record player and small collection of old jazz records, and private fenced in yard.
Interaction with Guests
I am usually (not always) out of town when the barn is rented and can leave everything ready for your arrival. If you prefer to meet someone when you arrive, that can be arranged as well.
The area is absolutely gorgeous and peaceful. So many varieties of trees and birds singing. It is truly an idyllic setting, only minutes from the town center.
There is a bus that runs from Ventura to Ojai as well as the Ojai Trolley. Both of these can be accessed less than a half mile from the house. Ojai is a great place for biking or walking as well as downtown is less than 3 miles away.
Other Things to Note
I highly suggest using the lamps in the house rather than the overhead lights. The lamps have been specifically selected for the space and placed with consideration. The overhead lights are awful.
Also, please drink the water from the water bottle in the kitchen. The tap water is extremely mineral rich and not ideal for drinking.
Though in a very private setting, there are neighbors within reasonable earshot so I request that guests feel free to behave as they wish (seriously, you won't even need to wear clothes if you prefer not to) within reason. Just no super loud music after 10pm, basically...
Cozy love seat sits perfectly before cable TV/Stereo system. (bed and couch have been moved - new photos to come)
