We really enjoyed our three nights at the Villa while attending the Ojai Festival. Fantastic location off of highway 33, views in all directions, short hike to Old Creek Ranch Winery, less than 7 miles to Festival venue (Libby Bowl in Libby Park). The Camp Comfort road (Creek Road/Montgomery St) is the best way to get to the Libby Park parking lot near the tennis courts, take the bicycle path to the rear entrance of the park (between Signal and Montgomery) in downtown Ojai.
Property is well maintained, rooms are immaculate. Friendly and helpful hosts (both Laura and her daughter). Awesome communications. As noted in the house rules (and other reviews) "must like animals". Only drawback is pool is not heated (not a problem on a hot summer day).
My husband and I stayed at Laura and Rick's beautiful house for only one night to celebrate my husband's birthday. We wish it could have been longer. We stayed in the Green Room which is right off the pool with a private entrance and bath. The setting of the home was stunning and our hosts couldn't have been nicer. We loved spending time on the stone terrace looking out over the canyon views...it felt just like being in Tuscany. We made friends with all their critters including an adorable miniature horse named Maverick. It really was a magical experience. If we could, we'd move in! Great birthday getaway. We'll definitely go back.
As other guests mentioned, you must be an animal lover. The dogs and cats rule the roost here! I was concerned about my allergies (I love dogs, but I am allergic). I didn't need to worry though, the house and the room were so clean I didn't have a single sniffle.
My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Laura and Ricks. It was a beautiful property and so nice to have the pool right out front of our door. There were so many cute seating areas and I don't think we even were able to see them all. Great views and scenery.
The room itself is comfortable and the bed was nice with crisp linens. Plenty of drawers and hangers in the closet. The windows open for a nice breeze and the curtains are plenty thick for sleeping in.
Laura was so sweet and gave us a little history of the property and even made us coffee in the morning. We stayed in one night and had our own dinner under the stars on the balcony. They really made sure we felt comfortable and right at home.
And did I mention the dogs! Cutest guys ever! I loved holding them like little babies and they made me miss our dog. We felt like family right off and would have loved to stay longer.
This was my boyfriend's and my first experience with airbnb, and it was fabulous. Laura was so welcoming upon arrival. The room was comfortable and inviting. Laura and Rick's home is beautiful. We stayed for two nights and would happily come back again. The visit was lovely and restorative! Thanks so much Rick and Laura!
Laura and Rick's place was amazing... I think just about everything in the Ojai area was booked that night and Laura came through at the last minute. The place is an oasis. Laura is warm & welcoming and made me feel right at home... well a 5 star home with a super comfy bed... acres of beautiful land and a swinging pool!
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.
