We were spared from the fire and feel fortunate and happy to share our beautiful villa, with you again! As the sun peeks in and out, after a rain, Ventura and Ojai are glorious! 2 guest rooms, 1 bath, in shared(with home owners and pets)villa. Featured Feb. 2O16 issue, Ventana Magazine under "Nesting" and "Editor's Note." Most beautiful location in the Ojai Valley, offering seclusion, privacy, peace, quiet, nature, breathtaking views, quick driving access to Ojai, Ventura, Santa Barbara areas.

The space
Once you cross over the bridge of San Antonio Creek and go through the gates, you enter a different world. A quiet, secluded country mountain getaway, Casa de Canto Villa is a working ranchette set atop Sulphur Mountain, surrounded by over 7,000 acres of mountainside, wildlife, nature, moonlight, sunshine, and breathtaking views, at the mouth of the majestic Ojai Valley. We are conveniently located to reach within short driving distance, the beautiful beaches and city of Ventura, the Shangri-la that is Ojai, the American Riviera, Santa Barbara, and Los Angeles, home to movie stars.

Enjoy the fresh country air in a home-like country atmosphere with your hosts, Laura and Rick. We welcome you, family, and friends to our villa. While waiting for departure on your travel adventure or sightseeing, for the day, in this special area of Southern California, relax by the pool, unwind by visiting with the horses or chickens, sit on the balcony and enjoy the views, read a book under an old oak tree, or just meander through the garden paths as you soak in the beauty of this wildlife migratory path. Since this is not a party house, as some guests have previously thought, we have an ideal location for athletes and other guests wanting to relax before a big event as well as for recuperating afterward.

For a good "ol' American" breakfast or lunch, visit our restaurant, The Worker Bee Cafe, in nearby Carpinteria. Breakfast is served all day! If you're in the mood for wine tasting, take a stroll down the street to the winery. Other nearby activities include restaurants, sidewalk cafes, shopping, local art, museums, theaters, lake, water park, surfing, wind surfing, kayaking, scuba diving, whale, dolphin, seal watching, horse back riding, meditation, retreats, yoga, massage, tennis, golfing, fishing, boating, cooking classes, rock climbing, hiking, star gazing...

Our Villa is secluded, private, peaceful, quiet, with breathtaking views... AND, great location since we are just 10 minutes from artsy, creative, Spanish architectural influence desert town of Ojai, Shangri-la. As well, 10 minutes from downtown seaside resort, Ventura. 25 minutes from the laid back beach town of Carpinteria, known to have the safest beaches. 30 minutes from our very own "American Riviera," Santa Barbara. 10 minutes from Lake Casitas with a fabulous and safe water park for children. You can rent a small boat or go fishing or both! And then, there are the mountains, too! Los Angeles, Hollywood, Santa Monica, about 1 hour 15 minutes, the airport, LAX about 1 hour 30 minutes. I can just go on, this is an incredible spot!

During your stay
Some of our guests are very private and we fully respect that. If you want to get away, this is the place to do it! No one will bother you here! Some of our guests love to chat and, we do too. We enjoy friendly conversational exchange about travel, work, family, and life experience...

ONLY booked guests are allowed onto property. No exceptions!

NO parties, weddings, bridal showers/gatherings, gatherings in general (office, bridal, bachelor, bachelorrette, groomsmen, graduation, reunions, etc.) are permitted through Airbnb booking. If interested, please ask for details. There will be extra charges similar to booking a venue and dependent on scope of event. If you do book through Airbnb with the above ( but not limited) listed intent, without first messaging and arranging for your intent, you and your guests will be asked to leave and, will not be refunded for your booking. Too many times, now, we have had a group book and it turns out they thought they could party and carry on, in our home and property! This will not be tolerated.

As, some of the following, has been mentioned previously in the description, our home is perfect for traveling groups, and guests who are visiting this area and would like a comfortable and safe beautiful spot, as home base, from which to leave on daily travel adventures, and for relaxing in between your travel adventures.
