About this listing

Very private setting with views out to the canyon. Private Jacuzzi. Outdoor living area and the bike trail that goes all the way to the beach
(8 miles) is right next door.
The back area is going through a make over for future enjoyment and is not child friendly. No effect on outdoor seating area.
My private living space at other end of house; we share kitchen. I have provided a mini fridge for anything you want near your end.

The space

Nestled on a hill side surrounded by Oak trees and birds, makes it feel like a tree house, with a seasonal creek below.
At the end of a quite cul de sac and a few short steps to the bike path that will take you all the way to the beach (complimentary bikes for your riding pleasure)
Beach leisurely ride 45 mins.
Relax in the hammock and listen to the birds play in the fountain or BBQ outside on the deck over looking the mountains.
Watch as the two mini donkeys play together kicking up dust, or they watch you as you lounge on the deck, hoping you'll give them a carrot!
Scavenge the thrift stores in downtown Ventura, or hike the many trails offered near by.
After a day of exploring, soak in the Jacuzzi hot tub over looking the ravine and gaze out at the many stars above.
5 miles to downtown Ojai, 5 mins to beautiful Lake Casitas or 10 mins to the beach. Local winery minutes away. Our neighbor Santa Barbara is only 35 mins away.
Bike, walk or drive, just come and enjoy the serenity.
The room has one single bed and a full with inner spring coils (very comfy) located on opposite side of the house from my area. Another room sleeps two. You have a private bath and french doors leading out to another patio area with Jacuzzi hot tub.
Full use of the kitchen and outdoor areas.
A short drive from Los Angeles yet it feels a million miles away.

Our only regret about this visit is that we didn't stay longer! The indoor decor is comfortable, unique and spotlessly clean. We so appreciated the little touches like eye pillows and bathrobes for all five of us. The outdoor space is the star of the space, with multiple decks terraced along the backside of the home overlooking a treed ravine and featuring adorable mini donkeys. Our most difficult aspect of the stay was choosing which comfy couch and table area or hammock?) in which to perch. The hot tub is the BEST, with more jets than any we've ever seen. We had our own mini fridge plus full use of a well-appointed, modern kitchen. Can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay here. It's close to all that Ojai offers and yet it is a world away. We shall return!

Mary is a most gracious host offering a beautiful haven among the Oaks trees with birds and little creatures plus 2 donkeys and wonderful outdoor areas with a hot tub and dreamy lights in the trees. It's a gorgeous experience and Mary will infuse your stay with heart centred energy.

Mary was a gracious host who made us feel welcome in her home. We were able to share the kitchen which we appreciated as we made our own breakfasts each day. In the evening when we returned we soaked in the lovely hot tub under the night sky and could listen to the resident frog in the back yard patio. The location is in a residential neighborhood and perfectly situated half way between Ventura and Ojai. The house is right next to a bike path and Mary has bikes which can be borrowed.

The backyard was great. The hot tub was amazing and Mary did a great job of setting up the surrounding atmosphere (green lights in the trees, brilliant idea). We arrived late but Mary was responsive and accommodating. We were surprised by how many oriental ornaments there were; be prepared if this might be triggering to you.

lovely home, lots of privacy, quiet and we loved sitting in the jaccuzi before bed time and looking at the stars. A real treat to be there! Thank you so much!

Mary has a very charming home with a very welcoming feel. I'd never rented a "room" before(usually entire house), but I was made to feel very comfortable. The outside space is very relaxing and has all the characteristics to allow total relaxation.

a beautiful rustic getaway, tucked onto a quiet cul-de-sac in beautiful Ojai valley. Mary was super sweet and very accommodating on check-in and check-out. The room is on the small side but more then enough for us. Clean towels and bathroom, bathrobes for the hot tub - all provided. The back deck and hot tub are heavenly. Treat yourself to a soak under the stars! will def be back!
