The apartment looked just like the photos. When we arrived we picked up the keys from the Ojai rancho inn and parked in the driveway of the duplex. The place was clean and very cozy. This spot is in a great location. We walked into town and also to the Ojai Valley Inn Spa. I would give this place 5 stars.
Great location very close to downtown Ojai, which is always the challenge when finding an Airbnb in Ojai. In my opinion, small town life is best when you can walk it or drive it in under a few minutes -- or bike it; the bike path is directly behind this unit! This place is big and well-decorated. Comfortable queen-size bed. Fully functioning and equipped kitchen. Air conditioning works well. Hosts via Ojai Rancho Inn are quick to respond and friendly. Only drawback for me was that it's a ground floor so there are other Airbnb guests in the larger (2 bdrm) unit above. I was lucky to get a considerate family above me, but I could still hear their footsteps. This may not be an issue for city dwellers used to apartment living, but for me it's an annoyance. You can always call the front desk at the Ojai Rancho Inn when you are considering this place (the staff there also run this Airbnb) and check with them on who will be above you. Is it a series of party people from LA out to have a wild time? Is it a more conservative family checking out the local boarding schools? Etc.
We drove in from Big Sur so we were tired but excited to check in when we arrived at 5 pm. Staff was very friendly and helpful at the front and gave us all the proper instructions. When we drove around to our room the staff was still cleaning the suite... they were close to done so we just waited... although exhausted and hot. The suite was nice but the couch isn't an exact full twin size and would be too small for an adult so suite is more suited for 2 people. Also, the air conditioner is in the living room so when it's quite hot, the bedroom is rather warm and only way to cool it down is leaving the windows open at night considering it cools down outside.
Accommodation was well-located for Ojai and it was great to have access to the pool and bikes. The staff at the Inn were very helpful. For those thinking of having 3 stay in the suite, the sofa bed is comfortable but the bathroom is off the main bedroom which could be a little awkward. The suite kept nice and cool despite the hot temperatures.
