My big request is to turn off the AC at 10pm as I really enjoy sleeping with the Ojai silence.
Liz was wonderful. She and her husband Jeff are warm and welcoming from start to finish. Liz was available in person and via email during my stay. She and Jeff are great to talk with and also totally unobtrusive if you want alone time. The guest house is adorable, and offers lots of natural light and beautiful views of their yard with mature oak trees, fruit trees, and vegetable garden. The porch off the guest house is a great place to enjoy the outdoors along with a hot bath in the claw-foot tub--heaven! The room is cozy and clean with a very comfortable bed along with amenities such as a mini fridge, hot water kettle for coffee and tea, plates, mugs, and silverware. The neighborhood is quiet and very close to some great restaurants. I'm definitely coming back. :)
Liz was a wonderful host! A bowl of fresh fruit was a warm touch and I started each morning off with a sweet juicy Pixie orange. The guest unit was a treasure! I came here to get some time away from the hustle and bustle of the city and it was the perfect retreat. The outdoor area and patio is a great spot to unwind and listen to the birds. The surrounding area was nice, I would definitely recommend a drive up to Meditation Mount (closed Mondays and Tuesdays though). I really enjoyed staying here and would LOVE to stay again! Thanks Liz!!
Liz was the perfect host all the way from the booking to my arrival. She made me feel very comfortable and provided great recommendations of where to dine during my stay. Furthermore, I cannot say enough good things about the guest unit. I loved the private patio area, and the outdoor tub was so relaxing. If you are looking for a respite where you can take in the outdoors and enjoy some quiet then this is the place for you!
I was so in love with my experience here. Liz is great, and immediately made me feel at home in her guest house. Upon arriving I was gifted a bowl of tangerines that were so sweet and yummy. Her place had everything I needed. The outdoor claw foot bathtub was the highlight of my stay. I took a bath both nights under the stars! Thank you Liz for your amazing spot! I can't wait to come back:)
Had a simply wonderful experience staying in Liz and Jeff's guesthouse - it was exactly what I needed to rest and rejuvenate my spirit. They had great communication with me during the reservation process, and were very helpful in getting me acquainted with Ojai by providing suggestions for local eateries, great farmer's market, hiking trails, and scenic drives. The bowl of fresh tangerines left at my door was a lovely touch making me feel welcomed and connected to the natural beauty of the Ojai valley. Their guesthouse was clean, quiet, and cozy (the bed is so comfortable), and the outdoor bathtub is totally awesome. I hated to say good-bye to this beautiful place, but hope to return another time.
Beautiful little unit in a quiet neighborhood. Liz and her husband were very friendly and welcoming. The bed was very comfortable too (memory foam). There were yummy snacks waiting for us in the room when we arrived. The outdoor bath was a very lovely experience as well. Be aware that the outdoor bath is your only means of bathing - there is no shower/bath in the restroom. That didn't bother us though since the weather was nice and the area is pretty private. I would definitely recommend this spot those looking for a getaway.
About the Host, Liz
Jeff and i met skiing in Switzerland in 1978. Jeff is from California and I am from France. Ojai is our home since 1985. Travel was at the root of our relationship, so it is really natural for us to welcome travelers and share with them the beauty of our home town.
