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.

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.

Laura and Rick were very warm, welcoming, friendly, and accommodating! They made us feel right at home and offered us everything we needed to have a comfortable stay! My boyfriend and I came to Laura and Rick's home for our anniversary weekend to relax and we had a wonderful time! We swam in their pool during the day, watched the sunset from their mountaintop, and stargazed in the evening. We were able to birdwatch, play with their dogs, and pet their horses. We also got two great night's rest in their comfy guest bed in the green room. A short drive from Ojai, we went into town to wander through the art galleries and have a romantic dinner. Thank you two so much for having us! We will definitely be back! :)

Laura is an exceptional hostess. The room has a private feel yet, opens onto a the pool which was delightful. The property is quite expansive and the views exceptional. I would have loved to have spent more time and either explored or sketched the many vistas. Laura and Rick (although we didn't meet him,) have created an exceptional rugged yet gracious experience. Laura was quite helpful with regard to restaurants and local sights. It wwa salso fun hearing about the evolution of the property. All in all, if you're looking for an out of the way experience and enjoy the wilderness of a "ranchetta" you'll love this spot.

Laura and Rick were lovely and the house and grounds are beautiful. Some things to note - it is definitely a shared house, so there can be quite a bit of noise from other guests and family. There is also no A/C, which during a heat wave, was a bit rough. Nothing that wasn't clear in the description, just good to know going into it. Spectacular views and wonderful pets :) The bathroom is private, but you have to walk through the main hallway to get there, as it's not attached to the room.
