Wow. What an incredible find. This spot is pure magic, and we had the fortune to find it all to ourselves when we arrived. For travelers unfamiliar with the Ojai Valley, it has all the tranquility and greenery of Sonoma (or was it just the wine that reminded us?) with a healthy dose of SoCal sunshine. The house is a true gem in this stunning locale, as are Rick and Laura themselves. They are the true spirit of Airbnb: warm, welcoming hosts delighted to meet their guests and swap tales of travels, language and life. They have done wonders with their hilltop setting, blending Mediterranean charm and the welcome presence of animals into something very close to what "home" is supposed to feel like. If my life ends up anything like theirs in a few years, something will have gone right.
My fiance and I were celebrating our engagement with a little wine tasting and relaxation in Ojai. Rick and Laura's spot was close, and it ended up being an awesome stay! Laura was so accommodating and friendly! Their property is gorgeous, private, and peaceful. Could not have asked for a better experience, and we will be back! Thanks Laura and Rick!
A clean and peaceful room in a lovely home, surrounded by incredible natural beauty. Laura was so welcoming and helpful, and we enjoyed meeting all the animals! This is also such a convenient location - an easy drive to downtown Ojai and also to the lake.
Two good things to know (not necessarily problems, just relevant details) are that 1) the private bathroom is across the hall from the bedroom, so you may want a robe or something, and 2) the house and rooms are generally kept unlocked. It's an incredibly safe area, so we had no problem with this. But if you're planning on making this your first stop after, say, a bank robbery or diamond heist, bear it in mind. Still, we were delighted with every detail of our stay, and hope to return soon. Thank you, Laura and Rick!
Laura and Rick's home was absolutely beautiful. Not only were they wonderful hosts to both Alvaro and I, but to our dog Kiva as well. Staying at their home was just what we were looking for: a cozy relaxing time in surrounded by nature under the stars. We go to Ojai quite often, so we definitely would enjoy the pleasure of staying with them again.
Patrick and I had a great time spending our labor day weekend here. Laura and Rick are great hosts. We love the gang of dogs that greet us daily. The house and the grounds are rustic, well-maintained, and simply relaxing. Laura shared with us her remodeling/decorating tips and provided much appreciated inspirations for us to continue tackle our own remodeling.
The home is a bit off the beaten path, about 25 min to Ventura Harbor (which we have to go for our cave kayaking tour in the Santa Cruz Channels Island early one morning). Our room was quite warm first day we arrived even with the fan blasting but this is what Indian summer is all about :). The green room gets a private/non-shared bathroom which we liked.
Overall, we loved our stay and will definitely be back next time we're in the area.
Thanks so much, Tiffany and Patrick! Come back anytime you're back down this way...The weather turned much cooler and beautiful just yesterday. Now it feels a bit like early autumn with that beautiful autumn light! Good luck with your home projects, send me photos if you need some 3rd party input... ;)
Laura and Rick were absolutely amazing hosts and warm, thoughtful people. I felt welcomed instantly, even by the dogs! The property is sprawling and gorgeous - no shortage of space to unwind. Hammocks, poolside, picnic table or on the deck - it is such a peaceful sanctuary. I would recommend this property highly.
Laura has such a kind heart and I really enjoyed speaking with her and Rick. If I come back to the west coast, I am certainly coming here for a visit!
This was our first airbnb experience. The bar has been set. We'd be very pleased if all future stays were half as nice as this one. Laura was wonderful. We spent a fair amount of time chatting with her. She is most gracious, the home is beautiful and the outdoor areas stunning. Can't imagine staying at a hotel when this kind of experience is available.
We had a wonderful time at Laura and Rick s Place. The room is really nice decorated and the bed very comfortable. From your room you can step directly step outside in their beautiful garden with pool, tables, benches and a really nice view. You 're always accompanied by one of her dogs. They are really friendly and want to mark their territory. Laura is really helpful. She can give you a lot of advices for the area. If you want to have a nice conversation, you will find her on the property. We recommend this place for people, who want to enjoy a beautiful house with garden and animals and the nice environment.
