Rachel's place was a wonderful retreat in Ojai. The place was large with plenty of space and a unique layout. There are two sinks in the bathroom which provided a ton of space. Kitchen was well supplied and had what we needed. The fridge is large and there is plenty of pantry space for long stays. Tea, coffee, and cream was provided which was very convenient. We also had use of the washer and dryer. Rachel was very easy to communicate with and although we did not get to meet her in person, she left detailed instructions for our stay. The townhouse is very close to a shopping center with grocery store and less than 10 min drive to restaurants and bars. We had a wonderful, relaxing stay here and would recommend it to other.s
About the Host, Rae
my love of cultural diversity is reflected in the eclectic anthropology style of 'casa del amor'. my first trip abroad was at the age of two when my mom and i traveled to japan and lived in small village for 3 months. sure i don't remember much but i know that this experience was a formative imprint as i have continued to travel and live in foreign places throughout my life. 3 years ago, after living abroad for 7 years, my partner and i decided it was time to create a base in ojai, my childhood home. in all my travels, i have found nowhere else like it. the way the grandmother mountains wrap around the valley in a protective hold. it has been said that ojai meant 'the nest' among indigenous native americans. this probably explains why so many people feel that they have arrived home when they discover ojai.
it is a joy and honor to be able to offer 'casa del amor' as a place for people to land, rejuvenate, transition, enjoy and simply BE ~*~
