Charming guest unit, detached from main house, under a majestic oak tree. Peaceful and light. Outdoor claw foot bath tub on a private patio will bring real relaxation. Located in Meiners Oaks, walking distance from restaurants.
If you like to look at the stars soaking in a delicious outdoor bath, this place is for you.
Walking distance to Farmer and the Cook, fabulous vegetarian restaurant and walking distance to the Ojai Meadow Preserve.
Interaction with Guests
We love people and respect their privacy.
We bought the house close to 25 years ago and love the neighborhood for it safety.
Walking distance to Farmer and the Cook and there is a cute trolley to go to town.
Other Things to Note
We have a small fridge, an electric kettle and some cutlery for you in our guest room.
And Netflix !!
My big request is to turn off the AC at 10pm as I really enjoy sleeping with the Ojai silence.
Liz and Jeff have a lovely home and are even lovelier hosts. The guest cottage is the perfect little getaway with everything you could need. The back patio with the outdoor bathtub is perfect for relaxing and enjoying the warm Ojai nights. Those with doubts about the tub need not to worry. There is an attached shower head and it is not awkward at all, actually quite the opposite. I would highly recommend staying here, though you'll never want to leave! Ojai is a magical place and this charming cottage makes it even more wondrous.
Liz was wonderful. So sweet and welcoming. She brought us fresh oranges and told us about a great restaurant right up the street. We were very close to our retreat location and walked up to the restaurant and store every night. I thought the tub was going to be a little weird to bath in but it was absolutely lovely. So out of the ordinary and very special.
The reservation was canceled 4 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Liz & Jeff were wonderful hosts. Communication was A+. Check in was a breeze and the accommodations did not disappoint. Loved the extra comfortable bed (I believe memory foam) and of course the outdoor tub which I used each night I was there. Thank you for a memorable experience!
My host was away but gave instructions that enabled me to find everything I needed. The room is as lovely as it looks and has an enclosed deck not shown in the picture. A special feature which is that there is no inside shower or tub, but instead a lovely outdoor clawfoot bath tub for a shower or bath. I really enjoyed taking my bath looking up at the large oak tree as the October morning warmed a bit. I felt quite at home and had a chance to chat with my host when they returned. Lovely, homey.
Great place to stay in Ojai! The outdoor tub is very pleasing and well taken care of. This place even comes with a heated toilet seat! Easy to walk to some great restaurants and very quiet at night. Liz is very nice and easy to talk to. We will be coming back!
What lovely people Liz and her husband are. So accommodating, helpful and thoughtful. The cottage was wonderful. It's located in their backyard and surrounded by trees. You enter through the side gate and into a peaceful, private space. Out the French doors on the almost entirely enclosed patio you will find a glass top table, chairs and a beautiful tub. At 7 a.m. with the birds chirping, I took a lovely hot soak in the tub with the sun comming up. The bed is memory foam and very comfortable. The room is decorated nicely. What a relaxing and unique experience to be in this peaceful space . Liz has thoughtfully provided some plates, utensils, cups, paper towels, a hot water kettle, small cube frig., tea bags, toaster, towels, books and many more amenities to make your stay comfortable. I can certainly see why she is a super host! I would definitely come back again. Thank you for sharing your home!
My name is Liz, I met Jeff, my husband skiing in Switzerland in 1978. We both loved to travel then and still do today. Jeff is from California and I am from France. Travel was at the root of our relationship, so it is really natural for us to welcome travellers.
