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, on 12 acres, 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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Laura & Rick's place was a great getaway from hectic LA life. Their house is a beautiful place conveniently situated between the ocean & Ojai. You need to be an animal lover to be there. Dogs, cats, birds and horses are important part of their household. We are definitely looking to come back in the future.

  • Thank you again, Laura & Rick! You guys are amazing. We enjoyed another fantastic stay & hope other Airbnbers do the same. Laura & Rick are friendly, easy-to-communicate with, & very hospitable. Their spacious property has gorgeous views of the Ojai Valley. We love staying in the Lighthouse Room because of the corner-room windows, décor, & terrace, but every guest room is perfect. One of the perks of staying here is the lovely winery just a short walk or drive away. You can bring a picnic & relax on the winery's landscaped lawn. We also brought wine back to our Airbnb where we enjoyed sunset views from their garden. Highly recommended! I love watching Laura & Rick bring in their horses; they have a lovely stable area. Their place is perfect for experiencing Ojai's nature for hiking, relaxation, or wine. This is my 3rd visit & there is nowhere else I would stay in Ojai.

  • Laura and Rick were beyond gracious hosts, and their home in Ventura was beyond our expectations! Our room and bathroom were very clean and comfortable, and the property was astoundingly beautiful--plenty of outdoor spaces to enjoy the view, sunset or starts. The location was a short jaunt to beaches and the main street of Ventura. Laura and Rick offered great suggestions, and were also very respectful of our slightly more introverted natures. As stated by Laura and Rick, their home is best for dog appreciators (all their dogs were very sweet). The Lighthouse Escape Blue Room also faces the Rooster coop--we didn't have a problem with the noise by shutting the windows when the crowing started, but one of the other rooms might absorb a touch less of the noise. Thank you for your wonderful hospitality, Rick and Laura!

  • What a weekend :-) Laura and Rick are the best hosts. The view from our room was worth the price of admission. Pia and I are already talking about a return trip...

    Thanks Laura and Rick.

  • Laura and Rick's home is so beautiful and relaxing. Laura was very gracious and we enjoyed our brief time there. We would love to spend more time there next time we are in the area. It was a perfect Southern California retreat!

  • Laura and Rick were gracious hosts. Their home is beautiful.

    Sitting on the balcony looking out over the pastel setting sunset against the Ojai mountains was gorgeous. The lovely pool and wooded setting was very peaceful.

    We would love to go back and stay for more than one night.

    If you are going to Ventura or Ojai don't stay in a hotel, stay here. It is exceptional!

  • We had a really nice stay at Laura and Rick's place. Laura was very friendly and accommodating. It has a beautiful view at the top of a hillside overlooking Ojai Valley.

  • The house and grounds are absolutely gorgeous! I wish we had more than one night to stay here, but it was definitely a great stop along our road trip. Laura and Rick have some very adorable dogs, and the view from the balcony was not only great during the day, but at night they shut off all the external lights and we got a great view of the stars as well! A real treat for us living in the city. Would stay here again.

  • 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!

  • 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.
