World travelers near and far will enjoy the serenity and views of these accommodations; and still be connected with WiFi and Satellite TV throughout. This respite, along with my other rooms: Serenity in Ojai Bedroom 2, Serenity in Ojai Bedroom 3, and Serenity in Ojai Bedroom 4, are 3 minutes to downtown Ojai; 10 minutes to Ventura's Beaches and Thrift Stores; and, 35 minutes to beautiful Santa Barbara. Also, kayaking, canoeing and boating at Lake Casitas Recreational Area is only 5 minutes away. Bike and equestrian paths are close by and his and her bicycles can be rented for a small fee from the premises. Golfing and dining at the world renowned Ojai Valley Inn is 3 minutes away.
In addition to their room, guests have access to kitchen, dining room, and outside patio.
Interaction with Guests
My interactions with the guests are to the degree to which they wish to socialize. I am available but mindful of the guest's interpretation of rest and recreation.
If circumstances are such that I cannot be present to host the guest directly, I employ a resident house manager who attends to each guest on my behalf.
Respect for each person's integrity of space
Millie was very friendly and greeted us upon arriving in the evening. She showed us around the house and gave us some restaurant recommendations. Millie was even nice enough to offer alternative ride suggestions if we decided to enjoy some wine tastings for the night! Since we were only staying in Ojai for the night, we dropped off our bags and headed into town for dinner. We came home late and left early in the morning so we really didn't get a chance to spend much time at the house, although I would have liked to! Everything was clean, welcoming, and very accommodating. The backyard looked peaceful and I would have liked to stay an extra night to enjoy it. I would recommend this house for anyone looking for a straightforward, quiet, simple, clean, and friendly space to stay! Thanks Millie, for our first AirBnB experience!
Millie is a very friendly host! We felt almost like visiting my mother! ;-)
She is also a versed person; we liked the conversations and appreciated the info and advises she gave us.
The area around her town Ojai is already worth a visit; We enjoyed the great views in Ojai and on the way to Santa Barbara and Los Angeles and the sky full of stars at night. Although we were already on vacation for 10 days we felt a deep relaxation when we arrived at Ojai.
Thank you, Millie!
It was a treat to stay at Millie's home. She's very kind, respectful, friendly and a great conversant. She was very accommodating and wanted me to feel at home. Her suggestions (travel, driving/traffic, food, etc) were very appreciated. I would recommend to anyone I care about stay at her home rather than a hotel. She is a really great person and I hope we remain in contact.
Millie is a sweetheart, caring and friendly.
She lives there but gives you space. very homey feeling. I have stayed here three times. nice kitchen with all you need and more. she has a new coffee maker (like Keurig~starbucks made) that was fun to play with. it is a nice safe neighborhood. close to downtown ojai (5minute drive). place is very clean. I always feel very welcome.
Millie was very welcoming. She was even flexible to accommodate a last minute change in my plans, and had no problem with my husband joining me for one of my three nights there.
Millie's house: very comfortable, very easy to find. Plenty of furnishings to make you comfortable. I wouldn't change a thing.
Millie as a host: Super friendly, attentive and easy going. She respects you and is interested in time there because she wants you to have a good stay. Don't stop at Millie's without taking the time to chat, it's worth it. You can't get that kind of experience in a hotel.
We only stayed for one night, but it was very good to say the least. Millie's home is comfy and clean. She is a great host and very accommodating! The area is quiet and very nice. There is a nice strip if bars and restaurants about a mile or two away as well! Would definitely recommend!
