We loved our stay at vista view!!! Unfortunately, we were only there for one night but we wished we could have stayed longer.
Lisa and her husband are wonderful people and we felt very welcome in their beautiful house with gorgeous back yard. We will definitely come back to take a sailing trip with them to the Channel Islands!!! Looking forward to it!
I actually booked this reservation for a client of mine traveling in CA. Lisa was very pleasant and reached out prior to my client arriving. She was very accommodating given that the reservation was not actually for myself.
I believe there was some confusion upon arrival. My client and I were under the impression that he would have a private space to himself and we did not realize he would be essentially staying in their guest room with the hosts at home. Because of this, I believe my client ended up staying elsewhere.
Other than the misunderstanding, Lisa was delightful and her home looked very comfortable and nice.
Please note that the guest never arrived. We went above and beyond to communicate with the guest and with Adrianna. Her booking was followed by a phone call from us, and then an email to both guest and Adrianna, including a link to the listing in case the guest had not seen it. The listing states that "We respect the privacy of our guests, but we live on-site and are readily available to help you in any way we can." Private and common spaces are also clearly explained. Our email also explained it, along with providing local info to help enhance the guest's stay. Please let this be a reminder that guests have an obligation to read the listing before they book. The guest changed afternoon arrival to 9 pm arrival, and then cancelled by text at 9 pm with the explanation that it was his birthday and he had booked in a neighboring city. We had made ourselves available since 3 pm for check in.
Lisa made us feel right at home. Her and her husband are excellent hosts. They made us feel extremely comfortable and we are very thankful for that.
Lisa is an amazing host! Our experience was fantastic. I would strongly recommend staying here.
Lisa and Brian made us feel very welcome. Their place is very homie and clean. They provided us with great recommendations about things do to around Ojai. They were very prepared for our visit which helped for an easy and relaxing trip. We'll definitely be staying with them again soon.
This place is very comfortable home both in furnishings and personal hosting. The open floor plan with the kitchen and family room opening up to outdoor living with wood and hammock chairs, along with a hot and cold tub that overlooks the large lush river bottom as their backyard is incredible both in the morning sunrise, and evening sunsets with strings of backyard lights that glimmer into the relaxing warm cool evenings. The mornings are greeted by a nicely appointed coffee bar with bowls differing fresh fruit. Local oranges, grapefruits. Bananas. Front yard figs. Eggs, bagels, cream cheese to round things off if hungry. We happened to be invited to join them with there 2 children home from college for what appeared to be there traditional Sunday evening family dinner. It was a delicious BBQ prepared by Brian the patriarch. We would definitely stay again without hesitation. We did drive 10 minutes over to Lake Casitas for a wonderful day at the lake. The lake breakfast/lunch diner was wonderful and if you ask for a validation stub you can get your parking reimbursed at the diner.
Lisa and her husband were the nicest people and their home is quite quaint. This was our very first time using airbnb and I have to say that everything went very smoothly. Lisa kept in close contact with us prior to our arrival and even helped us make some decisions on what to do in Ojai before we got there. There property is clean, spacious and the view is spectacular. It looks exactly like the pictures. We highly recommend the Vista View Home.

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!
