Description

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...

Laura was very quick to respond. She met is immediately upon arriving and gave us a tour of her lovely house and the property. You can tell that she takes pride in where she is. The house is on top of a huge hill and the views are amazing. She has birds flying everywhere and it truly felt like a paradise. At night you can here frogs singing very loud. It actually help me fall asleep, but it might disturb others. It is far enough away from Ojai to feel secluded, but close enough to where it only took a few minutes to get back downtown. Overall, I would book this place again if in the area.

Laura and Rick's place is gorgeous. Breathtaking, sweeping views, fresh air and amazing stars at night. The room was clean and comfortable. Laura was welcoming and took the time to show us through everything and mad us feel relaxed and right at home. The location is great - just 10 mins to Ojai suburbs and 15 mins into town, lots to see and do, or just relax and enjoy the serenity. Fresh coffee in the morning was a plus.

My friend and I had a great time at Laura and Rick's place. The property is serene, beautiful and has great views. Our poolside villa room was comfortable and we had the use of our own bathroom directly across from the room. Laura was very helpful and provided us lots of recommendations for dining and nearby activities. I would recommend Casa del Canto Villa for anyone looking for a peaceful escape within short driving distance to Ojai shops and restaurants.
