Absolutely no inside pets, and no exceptions, out of respect for our guests with allergies. Please do not try to book with an inside pet unless the pet is small, self-contained in an aquarium, and non-poisonous. Therein lies a tale...and we have lived to tell it. Thank you for understanding.
this was my first time with airbnb, and i have to say it couldnt have been any better. we had a very friendly family, and everything we wanted. lisa and her husband even cooked for us, and gave us coupons that we can eat cheaper in the restaurants if we want! it was all clean and she introduced us well in her home.. would definitely recommend and come again:)
Our stay was wonderful. Lisa was very welcoming and accommodating. We spent the day driving around Ojai listening to a guided tour CD and flipping through local pamphlets, both of which Lisa provided.
After exploring the area all day, we spent some time relaxing in the hot and cold tubs in the backyard, which overlooks a beautiful mountain vista. Lisa and her husband Brian were very helpful in getting us set up in without being overbearing.
In the morning we awoke to a freshly baked bundt cake, sliced watermelon and coffee, which we enjoyed on the back patio. Lisa went above and beyond to make our stay unforgettable. She's thought of every last detail, from providing information on local attractions and books by local authors, to offering communal kitchen and bathroom items.
We hope to come back sometime soon!
Lisa and Brian were phenomenal hosts in every way. They take the comfort of their guests very seriously and make every effort to provide everything for you that you could possibly need and to help you plan the best vacation possible. They trusted us with their beautiful home with a stunning view, they engaged us in interesting conversation and took great care in everything they provided for their guests. Also they are a wealth of knowledge providing us with local area information and engaged us in interesting conversation. They gave us space for all our bags and groceries, they gave us privacy to enjoy our surroundings and it felt like staying with family they were so kind. It was truly a memorable stay and a 5 star experience. Our room was well equipped, we had space for all our bags, I had space for my work in privacy, the room, the home, and the bathroom were very clean and also very welcoming at the same time. And we enjoyed their cat Peter Pan because we love animals and he amused us with his antics.
Lisa was fantastic coordinating our arrival, gave us a lovely tour of her home. The back yard is amazing! Her view is so serene! Will come back to spend more time! Lisa and Her husband have a sailboat and to charters as well which we are very much looking forward to doing with them. Her husband recounted stories of their years living aboard the sail boat and going all around the world. We loved picking his brain as we'd also love to do that one day! Definitely recommend staying here in Ojai. It's close to downtown but feels like you're in the mountains with both around. :)
Perfect airbnb experience with warm hospitable hosts that made us feel at home. We had interesting conversations and a true delightful stay. For any one who want a remote, cosy stay we gladly recommend - stay at Lisa's place.
Staying at the vista View is more like staying with family than just renting space in someone's home. Lisa and Brian could not have been more accommodating, gracious, and entertaining (tales from their life on the high seas) hosts. On a scale of 1 to 5 they deserve a 10 star rating.
Lisa and Brian are great hosts. Their place is great for a relaxed get away. Minutes from everything! Nice to soak in the tub! Thanks for everything!!

About the Host, Lisa
We are a family of 4 sailors traveling together. Well, we were until June 2013! Now we are landlubbers again, with two of the crew off to college. Brian and I enjoy renting our home and rooms to airbnb travelers. We found airbnb in our travels around the world, and welcome you!
