Tranquility awaits you in the beautiful Ojai Valley. Travelers from all over the world choose our exceptional destination for a private retreat of unparalleled natural beauty, rejuvenation, and inspiration.
The "Swallows Nest" is a spacious, private, light-filled one-bedroom guest unit with stunning views of the mountains surrounding the tranquil Ojai Valley. It is named for the migratory Cliff Swallows who fly all the way from South America to spend their summer here on the property. They arrive in mid-March and begin rebuilding their mud nests, which are clinging to the eaves. They're delightful song birds, and a joy to watch and keep the property and the pool area mosquito-free!
Relax in your private hot tub or meditate in the Indonesian tea house. Enjoy shared use of the saltwater swimming pool, or savor a meal in the lovely poolside dining area.
The full kitchen includes all standard appliances plus microwave, coffeemaker, blender, toaster. Iron and ironing board available.
The Swallows Nest is strictly non-smoking, and sleeps two adults and two children comfortably. Your well-behaved dog is welcome with a small additional deposit. (Sorry, no cats).

We loved the place, it was really lovely! Between the birds in the morning, the sweet little town, the ocean nearby, and the very comfortable accommodations - we had no complaints!
We overall had a nice stay. We loved the hot tub. But when we think private, we think PRIVATE. The swallows nest is an in-law attached to the main house. If you are in the hot tub, you can see the rest of the house and the side driveway.
We were on a mini moon, as we recently got married. We only had a short amount of time, with one full day. We were excited to use the hot tub in the morning and drink coffee. To our surprise when we woke up there were cars in the driveway and a woman knocking on our door asking "where is the yoga class"???!!!!
5 more cars showed up and parked right in front of the "private" hot tub. I called Journey, the assistant and he got everyone to more their cars, but damage was done. There went our romantic morning.
I wish the owner let her assistant know. I wish the message was passed on to the yoga class. I wish she let us know as it was a total surprise.
Other than that is was nice but really not that private. The hot tub made it worth while.
We had a great time! Beautiful and peaceful setting. Thank you!
Enjoyable and relaxing stay. Nice place and beautiful property! Thnks
We had a wonderful stay at Dorothy's lovely home! Very clean and cozy, with incredible views. This is a perfect spot to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings of Ojai. We will definitely be back!
We had a wonderful stay! The house was clean & comfortable and the hot tub was a nice treat for a surprisingly cold weekend.
This was an absolutely beautiful and relaxing spot to stay in. I love Ojai. Staring up at the clear sky and stars from Dorothy's jacuzzi was just what my boyfriend and I needed after breathing in LA smog night in and night out all year.
We were left pretty much to ourselves, and our stay felt very private. Next time we come back, we'll stay for much longer than a few days!
We had a wonderful time! The rental was truly perfect for a weekend away with my husband and toddler--the pool was definitely the highlight of my son's trip to Ojai. We'll be back!
This place is a little piece of heaven on earth!!! REALLY amazing healing energy. Dorothy and her little pup are magnificent hosts! We felt right and home and absolutely loved the space. We needed a weekend getaway after a terrible family tragedy and Dorothy's home was just what the doctor ordered. Quiet, serene, in nature and artistic, we only wish we had stayed longer.. a month wouldn't be enough.
Dorothy's home was so peaceful and comfortable. The grounds of this amazing retreat were beautiful, serene and magical. I was able to relax and renew on so many levels. Dorothy was a beautiful host, taking the time to welcome us and to make our stay so comfortable and easy. I am really looking forward to coming back for another "mini" retreat in the very near future and would highly recommend this quiet space to anyone who enjoys nature and self-pampering. The hot tub was perfect and the salt water pool was like bath water even at this time of year. Thank you again Dorothy!
