Like many Midwesterners I needed a few days away from the crud that is winter at home. I packed my bags for Ojai, which I had visited as a day tripper on several occasions, but had never had the pleasure of an extended visit. So happy I lucked out and found Magda. Her home is exceptionally peaceful and convenient both Ojai and Channel Islands National Park. The host was friendly, yet gave you space. A wonderful bonus was Magda inviting me to her yoga class on Meditation Mount. I love being a temporary local and both setting and teacher were zen inducing. A highly recommended place to stay in Ojai area.
The room was perfect and the house was inviting. Everything was simple and sweet. I was bummed I didn't spend more time with host, Magda, but maybe that just means I'll have to come back! Stay here if you appreciate genuine hospitality and want to meditate in an inviting backyard in Ojai. Perfect. I would stay with her again!
I absolutely loved my stay here at Magda's beautiful Temple Retreat. I arrived to a warm welcome, a hug and a cuddle off her sweet little kitty Liger. The place is gorgeous, and you are welcome to her peaceful garden. The bed is super comfy and you are minutes away from a gorgeous selection of restaurants. Magda is a beautiful person inside and out and if I was to ever return to Ojai this would be my go to place! I can't recommend enough.
What a peaceful, relaxing and educational stay! Magda has created a welcoming, retreat-like atmosphere in her home. The room is clean and simple, the bed very comfortable. I slept like a proverbial log. Located just outside downtown Ojai, it is close to everything, yet feels like a true get-away. Magda has much to share about her way of life, and she is well-connected in Ojai, so she is a great resource for all things healthy and transformative.
I had an excellent stay with this host over a period of three weeks while I was in Ventura for school. The retreat is located in Ojai - a wonderful and vibrant small town with lots of shops, restaurants, and outdoor activities. It took me approximately 25 minutes to commute into Ventura for school and I never encountered traffic.
The room at visionary retreat was generous in size and the bed was very comfortable. The kitchen was available for my use. The host is very knowledgeable about nutrition and is an excellent cook who's willing to share! All facilities were very clean as well as the provided linens.
I highly recommend staying here for your next Ojai getaway!
We booked our trip last minute and Magda was nonetheless very helpful in arranging our arrival!! We had room in the kitchen and fridge to hold our own food and enjoyed the spacious backyard for eating and relaxing! We felt very honored in our own space and experience but also warmly welcomed to become quick friends - it was a pleasure to have such good energy at an airbnb and we felt very safe, taken care of, and high-spirited in her presence :)

Tell me what your goals and needs are and I'll help you get there.
You will share our home with me, potentially my teenage daughter if she's home, and our sweet kitty Liger.
Organic grocery and restaurant. Great for morning hot drinks, fresh juice and locally grown produce and meals. It's the local hangout in Meiners Oaks.
$40 an hour massages within walking distance. What's not to love?
A local hangout. Live music nearly very night, full menu, and lots of motorcycles on the weekends!
Beautiful grounds, a sweet little bookstore and popular spiritual library.
Largest Natural Grocery in town until we get The Ojai Food Co-op built within the next couple of years.Juice bar, organic food, wine section, gifts
One of my favorite trail heads is right up the road. Great views! About 45 minutes roundtrip.Steady climb will get your heart rate up.
Great vegan food. Open for lunch. Try the raw salad!
Krishnamurti's home has been turned into a library and retreat center. This is where he gave many of his famous talks and planted his own orange groves.
A must see spot in Ojai. They're been meditating there for over 42 years straight. I teach yoga there at 9:15 every Thursday. Best view of the valley and place to watch the sunset.
