The Beautifully rustic cabin, Wabi Sabi House, is nestled in the most sought after location in the Ojai Valley, the fabled East End, where Krishnamurti himself used to take his daily constitutional. Surrounded by nature and steps from great hiking.

The space

Wabi Sabi House is nestled in the most sought after location in the Ojai Valley, the fabled East End, where Krishnamurti himself used to take his daily constitutional.

The East of Ojai, where the Chumash thrived for 10,000 years, is the part of Ojai that Aldus Huxley, Jackson Pollock, and John Lennon have come to rest while in California. The large parcels of land, and ample privacy still allow for a lone bike ride along a lush, breathtaking road, undisturbed.

Drenched in sunlight and twenty minutes from the beach, this Japanese style retreat sits at the base of Horn Canyon, with a huge private yard filled with bamboo, succulents, a fire pit and outdoor dining. It is situated between two preparatory schools, The Thacher school, and The Ojai Valley School, The Krishnamurti Library, and what was once Beatrice Woods' home and studio.

Just up the trail which winds past the house and up over the "Pink Moment" bluffs, resplendent with local flora and fauna, crystal streams, and a natural climbing wall, is a Pilates studio offering world class massage in an outdoor setting.
Natural sage, aloe, and aromatic herbs are right outside your front door, and down the road is an organic Pizza Parlor nestled amongst orange trees, oaks, and sweeping vistas. The good news is, you are still 1 hour and 15 minutes from Los Angeles and a short bike ride from town.

The cottage has a detached Japanese style bath house with a restored clawfoot tub, and birch paneling. It is ideal for a private soak after a long hike...

Views from the house include the Ojai mountain range on all sides, replete with hawks flying overhead. It is perfect for weekends or for the week to work in nature, near organic cuisine, Whole Foods style markets, world class spas, yoga, hiking, biking, horseback riding, and of course..surfing! This is the perfect place to re-charge all of your senses...enjoy!

Guest access

Guests have access to the best hiking in Ojai right outside the front door, there are fresh oranges to pick from the tree on the property, mountain streams, pepper trees, a soccer field surrounded by the mountain range and generally the most gorgeous flora and fauna that Ojai has to offer.

Interaction with guests

Guest can text me or call me at any time if they need something. I live in Los Angeles but my folks live on the property and are available for anything guests may need from extra firewood, to tea light candles. The key and a manual are left for them so if they don't want to see anyone, they have that option also. The property is one acre so complete privacy is available.

Other things to note

The house is the perfect balance of nature and town. Just far enough away to make one feel completely at peace. A massage and Pilates studio are a short walk up the trail, and hiking is at the front door. Because the house flanks a national forest, please be aware that indigenous California wildlife is part of the landscape. We advise that you keep your dog on a leash while outside. Please in the warmer months tell kids to be vigilant as rattlesnakes are part of the natural landscape and guests should be aware when hiking and with kids and dogs to remain vigilant when it is hot out. These critters don't want to interact with us but this mountain range is their home so we should be aware when enjoying its natural splendor! Otherwise enjoy the utter gorgeousness! Incredible beaches are a 30 minute drive away and surfboards are available!

A wonderful and relaxing retreat in the east end of Ojai. The place was easy to find and looks exactly as it does in the photos. It was very clean and had everything we needed for a peaceful weekend stay. The hike along the side of the house is very beautiful too. Highly recommend the wabi sabi!

Had a great stay at the Wabi Sabi. It's in a great secluded location, but close to downtown Ojai. Clean, beautiful, with tons of natural light. Would definitely recommend.

Cabin has a great location and is very well suited. Unfortunately the annoying dog barking in the morning and evening hours ruined the peace and serenity of an otherwise perfect Ojai retreat. We are dog lovers and have one of our own but it was WAY too much... we left the property just to escape the constant yibber yabber

This home is the perfect getaway if you want to be in nature and experience Ojai. It's right near hiking and a short drive to downtown. It is exactly as pictured. I felt comfortable and safe and in nature, but still had AC when needed. I would stay here again and recommend this place to friends and family. Very easy and cozy. I loved not having a TV and hearing the nature sounds at night. It was perfect!

Super quiet and relaxing spot. AC really cools down the room. Loved the naturally lighting! Recommend for couples or individuals looking for a relaxing weekend.
