Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We could not stay at the famous Ojai Inn and Spa because it was fully booked and after looking on airbnb, we found Laura and Rick's place which seemed very nice. I can honestly tell you that L&R's house is even more gorgeous than the Ojai Inn (and for a fraction of the price!). The views of the Ojai valley and mountains are breathtaking and even more so from the Lighthouse escape room. You are completely surrounded by nature, beautiful trees and animals. The room is spacious, has a balcony to sip coffee or tea on while looking at the views. The bathroom is shared but no one was on the floor at the same time as us so we had the large and elegant bathroom for ourselves. Laura was very nice and friendly. Needless to say, we highly recommend this Airbnb and we are very likely to be back!

    Thank-you Patrick! You and James are welcome back anytime! It was lovely meeting you...

  • Beautiful, spacious property that's utterly serene. Balconies with amazing views surround the house. Several areas both inside and out to lounge and relax. Great hiking trail and winery both at the base of the road.

    Thank-you, Jacob! It was a pleasure meeting you all!

  • Laura and Rick's home is breathtaking! We were there on a rainy day and still the beauty of the place was incredible. The room was very clean and tidy and we felt very welcomed and comfortable in their house. The blue room got a lot of natural light and has a private door out to the balcony where we spent some time at night before going to bed. We also enjoyed talking with Laura in the morning about her family's adventures over a cup of coffee. :) If you are looking for a quiet relaxing escape up in the mountains I would highly recommend staying at Laura and Rick's. Thank you again for sharing your home with us!

  • Although we were not that lucky weatherwise, our stay at Laura's and Rick's hidden nest ontop of a hill was beautiful. Loved the blue room with a separate entrance, its views and the quietness all around. You can feel the taste of nature all throughout the house. Great area for running, their driveway alone is worth it. Tasty sushi place only 5 minutes away by car - great lunch deals! Lake Cassitas is worth another (short) run. Laura was a great help in finding trails and getting that (website hidden) to work! If we ever make it to this area again, we will definitely stay here again.

  • It was my 57th birthday and my brother and sister-in-law flew into town. My dream was to get-a-way from Los Angeles to a quiet vineyard in California wine country. Searching the internet I found airbnb and loved the concept. If all host are as fabulous as Laura & Rick then I am 100% on board. We booked two rooms. The blue room is lovely and has a wonderful few of the tree line. The green room is is on the first floor and has large french doors that open to the pool. Both are very quiet. The house is welcoming and so are the dogs and horses. We spent the evening sitting under the stars next to the pool sipping on wines purchased from the local wineries that afternoon. The home is a retreat and even though we stayed only one night we left the next morning all wanting to return. The B&B sits above the Old Creek Ranch Winery where you can spend the afternoon lounging at a picnic table surrounded by the vineyard. All I can say is many thanks to Laura & Rick for sharing your beautiful home.

    Thanks! come back anytime...

  • I loved my stay at Laura and Rick's home. It is an absolutely gorgeous home with beautiful views of the surrounding area. At times it felt like being in a 5 star home. Centrally located between Ventura Beach and Ojai provided me with the opportunity to get around easily. I would gladly stay there on my next trip.

    Thanks Judy! "Til next time...

  • The stunning location, the clean and beautiful home and the delicious and plentiful breakfast all added up to an unforgettable experience.

    Rick and Laura are some of the kindest people you ever want to meet and could not have been any more welcoming and accommodating to our party of 6 (incl. 2 kids and 2 seniors).

    Unfortunately, we were only able to spend one night, but everyone agreed that we will have to come back to stay longer. When we were driving off the property, our 6 year-old summed it up nicely when she said: "Do that lady and the man really live here? Wow, they must be the luckiest people in the world!"

    Thanks, Marcel! Come back anytime!

  • Our stay with Laura and Rick was wonderful! We truly enjoyed their home and family. Rick made delicious breakfast during our stay. Laura and Rick are amazing hosts and made us feel at home right away. We particularly enjoyed lounging by the pool and hearing the wind chimes sing! The location of the house is central to Ojai and Ventura. We couldn't ask for more!
