Prior to arrival Otis provided me with information on the studio and the neighborhood. Upon arrival he was waiting for me and walked me through the in's/out's. We took a day trip to Solvang/Santa Barbara and this place was conveniently located. I would stay here again.
Otis was super cool. It was nice hearing about how he designed and built the place, and the place was comfortable. It's close enough to walk to the trail and close enough to walk to the center of town -- a great location. There are nice perks -- good shampoos and soaps from Trader Joes -- and the furniture is modern. Also, there's a bocci ball court (which we didn't find until our last day!). The light and the dogs woke us up early on the last day, but overall a good experience.
Otis was a great host - excellent recommendations from a real local. The studio was fantastic: a well designed, personal, spacious, comfortable space with all the modern furnishings and even organic, eco-friendly toiletries! What a location, too - moments from the main high street and the mountain. If you haven't been to Ojai before and you're into Nature, clean air, long hikes, artistic / artisanal community and spirit, great restaurants, that farmers' market vibe and a unique and very conscious bunch of people, then go! If you do make it to Ojai, this space is the perfect retreat. Big thanks, Otis.
Beautiful studio in a gorgeous neighborhood. Ojai is quaint, artistic town perfect for a day or two getaway from LA!
Otis and the Casa Verde studio was very welcoming. We were greeted by Otis and his sweet dogs: Lucy & Luke. The neighborhood was very quiet and perfect for anyone who wants to get away from that city noise. We didn't get to indulge in the many outdoor activities we wanted - we blame it on the heat, but there were plenty of opportunities to do so (early evening or early morning). And there were walking sticks (with built in compass) for our disposal. We utilized the grill for cooking and enjoyed the amenities of the eco-friendly place. We would certainly book this place again for our next Ojai trip. What a treat!
This is a great studio apartment in a converted garage. I love the eco-friendly vibe. The location is super convenient to downtown Ojai. There are beautiful views from the property. I will definitely stay here again. Otis is very welcoming and provided a lot of helpful information about the area and also gave varied restaurant recommendations. There were great organic soap products throughout. You can't beat the price!
The host and home were perfect. It was a great location and beautiful property. For sure I would want to return again!
