About this listing
We love hosting Ojai's conscious-community Workshop attendees. People on personal retreats or in town for some peace and quiet are welcome too. Our home is surrounded by nature, yet very near downtown. Please note: limited kitchen use available.
This little farm-like home was built in 1949. Beautiful hardwood floors, simple interiors have been well-maintained and upgraded throughout the years. Settled on a side-walk-less street, surrounded by trees and views of the Mountains that cradle Ojai Valley. Birds from humming to blue jays, many whose names I don't know, sing their morning songs. This is a peaceful sanctuary of vibrancy. An invitation to stop, pause, hold still relax deeply. Enjoy silent stillness . . .
You will have access to the entire house (except host's bedroom) and yards. Relax sip your tea or coffee in the cool morning air along the dry creek-side of the house. Large umbrella, table and chairs are there for your bird-watching, listening and journal writing pleasure.
Interaction with Guests
As my longtime friend Cathy mentions in her Friend Reference, I am intuitive. Quiet and engaging. If you are interested in hearing my preferred eateries, etc I love to share and promote local merchants. I'm equally interested in hearing what brings you to Ojai. And a bit about your interests as well.
Meditation and yoga practices are highly welcome. We can set a space for you, for both if you like. Namaste . . .
Our neighborhood is friendly and community oriented. Before I moved in I was invited to my next door neighbors, Dave and Elizabeth's house warming celebration. That's friendly!!
I love the views of surrounding properties. Trees. Trees. Trees. The primary colors offered the viewer are varied shades of clouds, blue-hues and multitudes of greens.
It's spacious. Kids, adults pass by on their bikes. Folks say hello, good morning or stop for a brief chat.
When there's an event in the Village, you'll notice people dressed for the occasion. Walking to their destination. Be it Libbey Bowl or The Art Center on Montgomery. Or maybe simply strolling to have a good meal at a great downtown restaurant.
It's warm and friendly. With no sidewalks! Has a country-feel while being within this charmingly small town. Welcome to the Neighborhood!
You can walk to downtown from here. About a 10-15 minute walk, depending on your pace and destination.
The Ojai Trolly stops are just down the street on Grand Ave. Trolly runs 7 days a week. Routes include: Ojai, Meiners Oaks and Mira Monte.
Gold Coast Transit's bus depot is a short walk from here too.They offer fixed-route services in Ojai, Ventura, Oxnard and Port Hueneme.
You can always bring or rent a bike! There are several great bicycle shops in town. Rails-to-trails routes are enjoyed by walking and cycling enthusiasts alike.
