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!

  • We had a lovely weekend staying at Laura and Rick's place. The house up a beautiful secluded hill with amazing views of the surrounding countryside. Our room was comfortable and nice and clean.
    Laura and Rick were great hosts, fun to talk to and very welcoming.
    They also have an excellent breakfast and lunch cafe in Carpinteria if you have time to go there.
    An excellent weekend escape from the city!

    Thank-you, Hugo! Wish you a wonderful holiday! Let us know next time you're in the area... :)

  • We stayed with Laura and Rick for 2 nights and had a wonderful time. Their place is absolutely gorgeous with spectacular views. Laura and Rick were both so friendly and hospitable. We thank them very much for a great time. I would recommend this place to anyone who is visiting the Ventura area.

    Thank- you guys! Come back anytime!

  • My boyfriend and I picked the Lighthouse Escape room for a getaway weekend and it was absolutely marvelous. Laura and Rick have a beautiful and very warming house. It's hidden in the mountains between Ojai and Ventura, so it's perfect if you want to disconnect from the world. They are both extremely nice and interesting people, willing to respect your privacy but at the same time open enough if you are up for meeting new people. They have a lovely breakfast place called "The worker bee" in Carpenteria, that I totally recommend you to visit. It was our first time doing Airbnb and we couldn't have picked a better house and better hosts! Thank you much, Laura and Rick!

    You're so sweet, thank-you! Hope to see you again soon! Abrazitos....

  • My boyfriend and I enjoyed every minute of our stay with Rick and Laura and all of their delightful pets. They were excellent hosts and we had the restful nature and animal filled stay that we were hoping for. We also stopped by their restaurant and highly recommend the chai shake.

  • My husband and I had a wonderful stay at the Lighthouse Escape Blue Room. I had reserved the room as a surprise for my husband's birthday and our anniversary since we needed to be in the area for a wedding. Laura helped me find great activities in the area (tennis lessons, surf lessons, great food...), which all worked out perfectly. Laura and Rick were wonderful and their dogs were sweet and fun despite their excited barking whenever we came home. The grounds were gorgeous and the room was very comfortable. We did use the fan when it was hot and also when it cooled down to block out the rooster sounds in the early AM, but all and all we were well rested.

    Response from Laura And Rick:

    Thank-you, Elissa and Nick! Enjoyed meeting you...Sorry about the early rooster call!

  • The only thing that could of made this a better experience is if we had more time there! What a wonderful place and spectacular hosts. The property was unbelievably beautiful and Laura was a delightful host. The wonderful dogs that roamed the house were an added bonus. Looking forward to staying here again but next time staying more nights! Thanks again for a great stay!

    Thanks, enjoyed meeting you and Fabian!

  • My girlfriend and I booked this place a couple days before spending her birthday weekend neighboring Ojai. Laura and Rick made our Saturday and Sunday at their villa extremely enjoyable and we're considering chances in the near future to stay again. Their home is lovely and exceeded every expectation. Talks and suggestions of things to do by Laura, getting to know their family of dogs, and having stunning views looking into Ojai Valley and Sulphur Mountain wowed us. We brought our own yoga mats to stretch out on the terrace in the mornings and lay down to glance up at the stars in the evening. We highly recommend for any couple or individual who is looking to get out from the hustle and bustle of their city. Great place for writers or artists who need some peace, quiet, and inspiration.

    Didn't know it was Doris's birthday...Glad she enjoyed her first Ojai experience! It was a pleasure meeting you both. Hope to see you again...Thank-you!
