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!

We loved this place! It was a wonderful little getaway! It's not far from all the things that happen in Ojai, and it's just far enough from the ambient noises of the road to feel as if you were secluded in the woods. It was wonderful to step out and see all of the stars at night without the light pollution, too. We will definitely recommend this place to friends!

This is a sweet space with a peaceful feeling. We arrived as the sun was setting and hiked up the hill a bit for a beautiful view of the Ojai valley. Had a yummy dinner in town just 10mins away and a great rest. In the morning, we bought some farm stand oranges from one of the many orchards in the area. This was a perfect short stop over as we traveled north but would return again to explore more of the area. Thanks Caitlin!

Charming, rustic little cabin-like home in Ojai. Clean, really comfortable bed in a quiet part of town. You really feel like you have escaped it all. Loved this little place!

This place is AMAZING. I have been looking for the perfect, private writing retreat and I struck gold! This cute little cabin is fully equipped with everything I needed to lock myself away for days... but there's a little town minutes away if needed. There's also a hiking trail just around the corner with gorgeous views and a stream nestled within the trees. The bathroom is SO CUTE and I love how I don't feel too far away from people, but I had total privacy. You have your own patio too. I think I found my Happy place. I will definitely be back!

Hello! I am a creative professional..illustrator, interior designer and brand consultant, living in Los Feliz, CA. I just co-founded my own business, a Design/Art House called Zoe Bios Creative. Our showroom is located in Silverlake CA, and we offer art and home furnishings. Although I love my LA neighborhood, it is great to keep my home in Ojai as a vacation rental so that I can escape to it from time to time to enjoy the sights and sounds of nature, to hike, and to enjoy small town life..:). I love the idea of sharing my place and the experience of Ojai with others! It is truly a great place to both relax and/or work, and recharge. I have completely redesigned it to let in lots of light and veiws...I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do! Cheers! Caitlin
