Interaction with Guests
The place will be all yours to enjoy:) Our sweet kitty Liger will be staying with you during your stay. She's low maintenance and very sweet! Don't book if you are allergic to cats!
Quiet neighborhood in the heart of Meiners Oaks, just 1-2 miles from downtown Ojai. One block from Farmer & The Cook organic grocery and restaurant.
Ojai Trolley stops a block away, or use Topa Topa Taxi. Bikes available for rent at The Mob Shop downtown Ojai.
Please remove your shoes in the house. Absolutely no smoking inside. We are an organic health conscious home. Sorry no pets allowed.
Magda's place is exactly how it looks in pictures---sweet, cozy, rustic, with a lot of cool Eastern touches. Clean but not in that impersonal, sanitized hotel way. We arrived too late to meet Magda in person, but she was in touch with us throughout our weekend stay, checking in to make sure we were comfortable. She left fresh fruit out for us, which was thoughtful. The kitchen and outdoor space are absolutely gorgeous. Comfy bed, free wifi.
The house itself is in a really cute, quiet neighborhood, with some inviting local restaurants within walking distance. Ojai's main drag is about a 7 minute drive away. If you have a bike definitely bring it. I personally loved the cat, but she did meow for about a half an hour early Sunday morning, until I refreshed her food (there was still some in there but I guess she wanted to be topped off--haha). Anyway it didn't bother me because I am used to my dog waking me up, but that aspect might not be for everyone.
I would absolutely recommend this accommodation to anyone looking for a relaxing, romantic, unique getaway experience.
Thank you Madeleine! It was a pleasure hosting you. Yes the trick with Liger is to feed her in the morning. This is why I left you the food and note to feed her in the am. She likes her breakfast haha... I am so glad you got the romantic getaway you were looking for for Valentines day!
The host was accommodating and kind. The location is not in downtown Ojai if that is what you are looking for. It is, however in a peaceful neighborhood close to some great stores and restaurants (right by amazing The Farmer and The Cook. If you are looking for a "hotel like" experience, this is not it...it's more home-y and lived in.
Rented out the entire home for a weekend getaway to Ojai. House is in a great location, a quiet area just a few minutes from the main street in town. Was a bit disappointed in the appearance of the house compared to the pictures, the backyard was not as inviting as it was described and the house was blanketed in cat fur. I'm a cat lover and we knew the cat would be staying on property, but we were awakened at 3AM with the cat howling nonstop until morning. Just a heads up if you are planning a peaceful getaway, maybe ask that the cat not stay-she was adorable but very loud. We left exhausted and disappointed and the host wasn't willing to do much about it after sadly.
This booking was a real bummer. The guests inquired on last minute notice and asked for a one night exception. I agreed to make the exception. Airbnb had a glitch that had me putting in over an hour on the phone with them to get the booking to go through. That night we got out first rain in months, a miracle as we're in severe drought in Ojai. When the guests arrived the next morning, I showed them the property and apologized that the yard was wet from the rain, and explained how to feed our kitty in the morning.
The next morning the let me know the cat had been meowing for breakfast, so we went over how to feed her again.
I offered to allow them a late check out to extend their stay at no charge.
A whole week later I got complaints from them,and demanding a refund. Wow. That would be my first complaint after dozens of satisfied guests. Though I didn't see how I was at fault, I offered a partial refund anyway.the comment "the house was blanketed in cat fur" is ridiculous. This is the same house that all other guests have stayed in, most recently one guest for 3 weeks-with zero complaints and only praise.
I wish people would communicate more clearly if they are unsatisfied, appreciate how I went out of my way for them, and not make up stories to get a refund.
This was a lovely location. The host was kind and accommodating. The lodgings were nice, clean and uncluttered. I appreciated the responsiveness when I contacted the host and also the general care given to the space. Would definitely recommend.
Great host! We had a lovely time, and the host was very attentive. The home is in a cute neighborhood, and has plenty of nature around. If you are looking for a zen-type getaway, this is a good place for you. There are no TVs, but you do get wifi! Plenty of meditation areas.
