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!
We had a wonderful time with Laura and Rick. The room and house are beautiful and the bathroom is comfortable. We stayed with our 3-month old and Laura was very welcoming and friendly. We were a little worried about the dogs but they were very sweet, even with the baby. It's a lovely location to relax, and just around the corner from Ojai!
Like many of you I work hard and seldom take time to play. When my birthday came and family said Let's Celebrate I wanted a special place. Everything in Ojai that I liked was booked and then I cam upon AirBnB. BINGO! Needless to say after staying in the Green Room I am sold and a fan. It is more charming than the picture. Remote yet not far from Los Angeles. The entire home is a separate world that welcomes one to relax and enjoy life the way we should. My favorite moment was sitting under the stars next to the pool drinking a red Ojai wine purchased earlier that day. The next morning it was total fun walking the property with Laura with the four dogs at our heels. I am not a horse person so meeting and petting three horses was also a special treat. Laura is a fabulous hostess and made each of us feel we were spending the night with family. The home sits above the Old Creek Ranch Winery which is also so welcoming we stayed three hours. :)
My husband and I stayed here for a night as part of a surprise 40th birthday trip I planned for him. Laura and Rick are warm and welcoming hosts; they were wonderfully accommodating about keeping the surprise a secret and about our very early morning departure. The room and property are just beautiful, with sweeping views and romantic little nooks for dinner al fresco or a glass of wine. This feels like a true getaway; it couldn't be more peaceful or romantic.
We stayed one night with Laura and Rick and it was convenient and wonderful. Just what we needed. The green room is right by the pool and on the lower floor, so there is sometimes some noise as other guests arrive and depart, or are spending time outside by the pool. It didn't bother us much though. The bathroom is across the hallway. We'd definitely stay with Laura and Rick again.
My fiancé and I had a great experience. I am a bit of a introvert, but wanted something a bit different for her birthday. Laura and Rick made us feel right at home and were sensitive to our needs. I fully recommend them and the house is spectacular. Yes, you do need to be a lover of dogs and animals, but only because they are warm and friendly.The house was clean and nice and it was really private. I like that it is close to Ojai and about 30 minutes from Santa Barbara. The breakfast was worth it too. My fiancé likes to be spoiled on her birthday and we were rewarded with a special breakfast. Thanks so much.
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.
