About This Listing
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.

Mary was a great host and her house is beautiful! Our room was very comfortable and we took advantage of her gorgeous backyard and lovely jacuzzi. I would definitely recommend staying here!
I stayed here with my mom, dad and brother. It's a nice, peaceful atmosphere and the rooms are very private from the rest of the house (one is actually a separate structure). The animals were super cute and fun to interact with, but they would pose no problems if you're not into that. Mary is a great host - friendly, caring, and easy to reach by phone for questions, checking in, etc. I would definitely stay again.
This place is magical. Mary was a welcoming and warm hearted host! Her patio and views were amazing, her animals were so cute, the room was so cozy, the lighting at night while in the jacuzzi were awesome. This is the spot to be zen and connect with your chi!
Mary's place is terrific. Beautiful patio with a jacuzzi overlooking the ravine. Also friendly donkeys to greet you in the morning! Mary was a very welcoming host -- easy to coordinate with, and ready with local advice. She lives on one side of the house (with her cute little dogs), and the cozy airbnb room is on the other side with its own bathroom and with the aforementioned patio. The bed is comfortable too. Oak View is about five miles from Ojai. Mary's place is a great choice if you're visiting the area!
Perfect AirBnB for a couple near the famous Road 1. Mary was a very friendly host, the place is amazing, quiet and charming, the bedroom is very comfortable and there is a large outdoor deck with a BBQ and a hot tub, perfect to relax by night.
The two donkeys are very nice, we even had the chance to feed them ! ;)
Strongly recommend for people willing to live a romantic experience out of the touristic path.
Mary was very nice. We were thrilled to find a place for 5 of us for 1 night only. There was one room with a twin bed and a queen or full sized bed. The bathroom was off of this room. Outside there was a room with a queen airbed in it. This bed leaked and my aging parents needed to blow it up 5 or 6 times in the night. Mary does say in her comments that there dust due to the donkeys and the area but there also were cobwebs in the corners of the ceiling of our bedroom. It was a bit messier than I was expecting.
Mary is incredible. She has created a haven away from all the business. The place was very clean and spacious and comfortable. The patios and hot tub were at our disposal and so luxurious, with gorgeous views. The donkeys and her two little dogs were so friendly, and made the experience one of a kind. Me and my friends will definitely be returning when we need a pick me up and some relaxation time in the beautiful outdoors of Californian. Thank you Mary!!
