The House
This 2 bedroom, 2 bath is nestled on a quiet cul-de-sac at the base of the foothills of the Los Padres National Forest. You're just a few minutes walk to Ojai's charming downtown with shopping, restaurants, spas and golf. This completely remodeled, luxury home features a chef's dream kitchen -- Gaggenau full-surface induction cooktop, two commercial quality French-door wall ovens, Sub-Zero fridge, stainless steel farmhouse sink, and a huge center island. The gracious interiors include high ceilings, large windows, skylights, custom tile work, gas fireplace, stunning bathrooms, 4 sets of French doors and designer closets throughout. The interior is furnished in a casual California style with indescribably comfortable couches and chairs from Restoration Hardware coupled with authentic Spanish pieces.

The Gardens & Outdoor Kitchen
The secluded half acre backyard is a true oasis. Nestled beneath mature oaks, the property features majestic olive trees, numerous fruit trees (apricot, peach, fig, lemon, orange, persimmon, pomegranate), a charming vegetable garden and a stunning outdoor living and dining space complete with a chef's quality outdoor kitchen.

Take a break from exploring downtown or hiking to luxuriate on a lounger in front of the bubbling fountain. Hummingbirds and monarch butterflies abound. Feeling motivated? Smoke and grill to your heart's content and then dine beneath the stars. Afterwards, enjoy a night cap in front of the outdoor fire table as you cuddle up on the comfy couch.

If this occurs, the customer has no right to ask for the return of your security deposit or prepaid rent. You should also keep in mind that, when renting a property, you accept the terms and conditions herein, and are expected to comply at all times. The person signing the contract is responsible for the appropriate and decent behavior of everyone in your party.

ENERGY SAVING
If leaving the home for an extended period of time, we appreciate if you turn off the air conditioner in summer. It’s super effective and cools the house very quickly so you can achieve your desired temperature in a couple of minutes after turning it on.

As another reviewer noted, this place is gorgeous in the photos and then when you arrive you realize it's even better in person. We could not have had a more wonderful month in Ojai. Choosing this home was the best move we made. Hiking right out the back, walking to town out the front. Quiet, dead end street and the most beautiful garden and outdoor areas. My husband loves to cook and the kitchen is as stocked and well equipped as our own home. We just left and I already want to return.

We stayed in Ojai for 1 month (July). It was one of the most memorable holidays we have ever had! Not only because Ojai is a great place but the house is magnificent ! It looks more impressive than on the pictures! The garden is very looked after and it is pleasure to be there at any time of the day ! Also the house is full of cutting-edge equipment! Amber's and Dave's hospitality and care made our stay very easy and comfortable like at home ! Also they gave us all needed information regarding hiking, entertainment, restaurants, sightseeing and shopping. Definitely, this place is heaven on earth!

No exaggeration, everything was thought out to perfection. Not a single disappointment including the weather. The kitchen is a cooks dream. And Amber is a thoughtful, responsive and detail oriented host. Can not say enough about her or the place. If you are visiting ojai, or the spa, this is a place to experience. The pictures are spot on, and do not get across expansive size of the garden which is stupendous.

Wow, Ojai Gem was fantastic. I echo all the other, glowing reviews. It is the rare place that is actually nicer than the photos! The house itself is perfect -- open, warm, stylish, and filled with so many thoughtful details, big and small. But the garden is the highlight. It is spectacular -- so peaceful, serene, and well designed. We barely wanted to leave. (The pictures don't do it justice.) Also worth mentioning that the location is ideal. It is basically equidistant (and easily walkable) to both downtown and the impressive trail network above the house. Lastly, Amber was a delight. Accessible, helpful, and easy to work with. Already looking forward to getting back to Ojai Gem!

This house truly is an Ojai Gem!!! This home truly is like living in your own private retreat center. It was the perfect, peaceful and relaxing weekend getaway. The garden is tranquil and very inviting. The gourmet kitchen is very well equipped and absolutely beautiful. We loved using some veggies from the garden to make delicious fresh juices every morning! What made it even more special were the fine touches throughout the house, the lighting the cashmere throws etc. etc. the home is in a perfect location we walked into town for breakfast every morning. Amber is delightful and very helpful and her welcome book very thorough. Thank you Amber, we look forward to our return!

From the moment we arrived in Ojai and stepped into Amber's home, we knew we were in for a perfect month's vacation! Amber could not have been a more gracious hostess, making sure at all times that we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. She provided us with all kinds of information about the area and the home prior to our arrival, so we were up and running immediately. The home itself is stunningly beautiful - so tastefully furnished and maintained. A beautiful kitchen which was a joy to cook in with a well stocked pantry with spices, oils & vinegar etc. The backyard garden is a spectacular space - so tranquil! My husband and I spent lots of time just enjoying the garden. The outdoor kitchen and dining area are equally as well thought out and beautiful, and coming from a cold climate, we took great pleasure in picking our own rosemary, thyme and lavender from the backyard garden. There is absolutely nothing I would change about our experience. From beginning to end it was perfect! We will definitely be looking to return and rent again from Amber and Dave!

Hi, we're Michael & Vanessa. We've lived in Los Angeles for almost 20 years and fell in love with Ojai years ago. We love splitting our time between our home in Venice and here in Ojai. Michael is the proud father of two sweet little girls. Together we are the proud owners of two big, old and over-weight dogs. Michael is an amazing film buff and Vanessa is a crazy soccer fan. We love this home and all that Ojai has to offer. We hope you do too!
