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.

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!

We loved staying at Mary's place. It was pretty much perfect, with a comfortable bed, private and quiet room, and fun things like the hot tub and donkeys. I would absolutely recommend this place to friends and hope to stay there again in the future if I'm in the area.

Mary's home is wonderful! There was tons of space for our group of four. We enjoyed sitting in the hot tub, drinking hot coffee under the gazebo during the morning showers, and saying hello to the donkeys! Definitely recommend if you're looking for a unique place in the Ojai area.

Awesome stay! Mary's place was just as described. Facing a canyon, the surroundings gave the Bird's Nest a very cozy, private, and quiet vibe. The donkeys and hot tub definitely made for a quirky time :) we loved it!

Great inexpensive spot to stay, with awesome yard and zen vibe. Super convenient quick drive to Ojai. We were in town for just one night for a wedding and didn't get to spend much time at Mary's, but would have loved to hang out more and take advantage of the serene outdoor space, hot tub, and trail. The mini donkeys are incredibly adorable.

If you look for a quiet place with your independancy, if you do not mind having animals close to you (little dogs and donkeys), this is the place to be. We appreciated this place. Mary is discrete but if you need any help, she will be pleased to help you.

Mary's place was a great getaway on our sojourn to Ojai. Just outside of town, short, scenic drive...we felt good there. Bed was comfortable, outdoor area was very cool.. We were disappointed that the hot tub wasn't working because we were looking forward to that, but understood that stuff like that happens sometimes. I'm sure it's fixed by now. Mary's house is comfortable and bohemian with cool colors and atmo. Bed was very comfortable and we felt we had a lot of privacy even though the space is connected to her house. Mary was friendly and accommodating. She let us feed her donkeys...that was cool.
