About this listing

Enjoy the charm of Ojai in this quiet, comfortable, private home. Home is about 5 minutes from downtown Ojai, 15 minutes from downtown Ventura and beaches, and 40 minutes from Santa Barbara. Perfect for travelers in town for conferences or fun. Home is located near the junction of hwy 33 and 150. Guests typically have a bit of privacy, as I often am away from home.

The space

Clean and comfy, you will enjoy the queen size bed. The room includes a small refrigerator.

Guest access

Enjoy the dining room, living room, back and front yards, pool, and outdoor seating at any time! An assortment of items to include oatmeal, fruit, coffee, and tea are available mornings in the dining area. Plenty of kitchen counter space for light food preparation, microwave, and, if you are creative and willing to shuffle food, extra space in the kitchen refrigerator.

Interaction with guests

I lead an active lifestyle and am often traveling, working, running, or out with friends or family. I may be home during your stay, or I may be away. If I am home, I very much enjoy the interaction with guests. If you prefer an active host to guide your trip, you may opt for another accommodation where the host is home more often.

I do want to make sure you are absolutely comfortable, so please let me know what I may do to assist you or address concerns. I am delighted to share my home with you.

Other things to note

Please inquire if you need a more flexible check-in or check-out time. When possible, I will accommodate your request.

This was my first time using Airbnb and I'm happy to say it exceeded my expectations. It was exactly as advertised. The bed was super comfortable and there was plenty of closet space for all the clothing and items I brought for my 5 night stay. The private bathroom was stocked with plenty of towels and had all the amenities, such as shampoo, conditioner and body wash. Laurie provided breakfast items each morning, including oatmeal, muffins, yogurt, and coffee and tea. There was also excellent wifi. The location of the house was perfect for me. It's in a nice, quiet neighborhood, just minutes to downtown Ojai. Laurie couldn't have been more friendly and welcoming, and she made me feel right at home, while also respecting my privacy. She was a wonderful host! I thoroughly enjoyed staying at Laurie's place and would absolutely stay there again.

What a wonderful place to stay. The host is lovely and hospitable. She grants the basic amenities, but doesn't stop there, she goes beyond. It felt like I was staying with the friend of a friend. She treated me that kindly and generously. I highly recommend.

I thoroughly enjoyed staying at Laurie's place. Check-in was a breeze, and all previous reviews about Laurie's hospitality have proven to be true. We had a brief conversation during my first night there and she was pleasant and kind. I appreciated that she respected my privacy but let me know when she would be coming and going so that I wouldn't be startled. My experience was comparable to my stays at hotels, and maybe even better. There were blueberry donuts, bananas, tea, and coffee available if I ever got hungry. The bathroom was fully stocked with all manner of amenities: bath towels, face towels, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, Q-tips, and cotton balls. A minor detail, but the scents of the hand wash and the shower amenities were delightful--I felt like I was at a spa. I may actually go to Trader Joe's and purchase the bath amenities she had. I was also pleased to have the bathroom completely to myself. In the bedroom, there is a mini-fridge, a writing desk, and a small basket of other necessities you may have forgotten should you ever need it. Also--the bed. The bed is incredible. Better than many beds I've slept in at hotels. I practically melted into it each night. The spaces were remarkably clean and pristine. I came to Ojai for some solitude and quiet time, and I definitely got that here. Not to mention Laurie's home is at a prime location, with a five minute drive to town and a mere few minutes walking to the Ojai Valley Trail. Had the weather not been so cold, I would have taken advantage of the pool. It was a lovely Airbnb experience!

Immaculate. Laurie is very nice and has a lot of energy. She's a great conversationalist and also knows how to accomodate those looking for peace and quiet. Again, this is one of the cleanest places I've stayed in hotel or not, since I can remember. But to my surprise she was so laid back. 'Ah, put your dishes over there, don't worry about them...' :) Great host.

I stayed at Laurel's home while attending a three day training in Ojai. Her home is located in a residential area about a short 7minute drive from the "downtown" area of Ojai. I loved driving the windy back road from her house to the heart of Ojai each morning. The bed was oh-so comfy and the space felt like home! It was clean and cozy, with cute accents. Although, Laurel was out of town 2 of the 3 days I stayed, she made sure I had breakfast each morning by providing yogurt, muffins, and tea! I thought that was such a special touch -- not everyone does that for you when staying at an AirBnb!!! It was nice to have something to eat before heading off to my event. I spoke with her briefly on one of the evenings. I loved her energy and passion for what she does! Thanks so much for a wonderful stay!

Laurel User ProfileLaurel is a superhost.

I'm a high school administrator from Ojai, CA I live somewhat spontaneously and love all things outdoors, meeting new people, and having new experiences! My two children both are in college, leaving me greater opportunity to open new chapters in my life. I spend much of my free time running, biking, swimming, and pursuing athletic interests.

About hosting you: As a traveler I appreciate a quiet, relaxing environment where I can allow my mind to relax and take in the new setting and area. My goal as your host is to provide such an environment. I want to make sure you are comfortable in my home as well as have all the information about this wonderful town of Ojai so you may make the most of your visit.

About my travel: A fair amount of my travel these days is for athletic events or other outdoor activities such as skiing. I try to see and do as much as I can when I travel, and am up early. I enjoy local scenes and restaurants, as well as museums and historical points of interest. I don't drink much and don't eat wheat. I am allergic to cats and need a cat-free room.
