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.

For a good "ol' American" breakfast or lunch, visit our restaurant, The Worker Bee Cafe, in nearby Carpinteria. Breakfast is served all day! If you're in the mood for wine tasting, take a stroll down the street to the winery. Other nearby activities include restaurants, sidewalk cafes, shopping, local art, museums, theaters, lake, water park, surfing, wind surfing, kayaking, scuba diving, whale, dolphin, seal watching, horseback riding, meditation, retreats, yoga, massage, tennis, golfing, fishing, boating, cooking classes, rock climbing, hiking, star gazing...

The Neighborhood

Our Villa is secluded, private, peaceful, quiet, with breathtaking views... AND, great location since we are just 10 minutes from artsy, creative, Spanish architectural influence desert town of Ojai, Shangri-la. As well, 10 minutes from downtown seaside resort, Ventura. 25 minutes from the laid back beach town of Carpinteria, known to have the safest beaches. 30 minutes from our very own "American Riviera," Santa Barbara. 10 minutes from Lake Casitas with a fabulous and safe water park for children. You can rent a small boat or go fishing or both! And then, there are the mountains, too! Los Angeles, Hollywood, Santa Monica, about 1 hour 15 minutes, the airport, LAX about 1 hour 30 minutes. I can just go on, this is an incredible spot!

Getting Around

Since our Villa is secluded and completely surrounded by over 7,000 acres of mountainside, wildlife, nature, moonlight, sunshine, and breathtaking views you will need a car to get around! Our driveway alone is a 1/2 mile long up Sulphur Mountain. BUT, please do bring your bicycle, hiking or running shoes and binoculars! We have the best trails in this Ventura, Ojai, Santa Barbara area!
