The space

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, surrounded by over 7,000 acres of mountainside, wildlife, nature, moonlight, sunshine, and breathtaking views, 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.

My girlfriend and I spent our anniversary out here and it was beautiful. The location is great with a awesome view that we both loved, and the room itself was very clean and cozy. Rick and Laura were both very friendly and accommodating, and we definitely want to stay here again in the future!

Laura and Rick's incredible home was such a treat to stay in! Laura made us feel right at home in our beautiful room, and the rest of the house was so comfortable and welcoming as well. An unexpected bonus was the amazing property surrounding the house that was so much fun to explore! We only wish we had gotten to spend more time in Laura and Rick's home; we'd love to stay there again if we return to the area and would so highly recommend that anyone else visiting spend at least a couple of nights there!
