Interaction with Guests
I'm happy to provide information and guidance as much as possible and equally happy to let guests enjoy tranquility and privacy.
This neighbor hood is special as it's a long ridge in it's own corner of Ojai with two large private properties of many hundred acres each to the north and south. In fact one can't really see any other houses from here except the Krotona Spiritual Library in the distance.
The Ojai Trolly stop is about a 10 minute walk as is the bike path... which is faster if you ride a bike. ;)
Other Things to Note
My lovely daughter Taia can offer breakfast, room service and daily housekeeping for an additional charge.
This is a unique retreat-like property most appropriately enjoyed by special people who value:
Conscious healthy lifestyle
Courteous quiet behavior
Appreciation for peace & beauty
If this is your style, a very special experience awaits you.
Johann made us feel very welcome, gave us some good hiking advice, and went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed or wanted (little things, like a hot water boiler, etc). He is a very thoughtful and interesting person with a unique perspective on things. The well water from the property is very tasty! The house sits on top of a beautiful and spacious hill with beautiful views, and we thoroughly enjoyed being inside as well as outside.
Johann is an awesome host! I made my reservation with one day's notice, and Johann was super accommodating and with a very clear communication style. I felt welcome before I even arrived! I was attending a workshop nearby so I only stayed at the apt. between 10:30 pm and 7:30 am one my two-night stay. The apt was very clean and tidy, and cozy. The bed is very comfortable!!! :) And the house and property was extremely beautiful, peaceful, and quiet. I slept like a baby. One of the mornings I went for a run and loved seeing the morning mist and gorgesous trees and pretty surrounding properties. Johann left pamphlets out for nearby attractions and places to eat, the shower water pressure was great and gets hot fast, filtered water was available- awesome! I was grateful for the soft towels, fresh picked flower in the bedroom and fresh lemon and orange on the kitchen table- what welcoming touches! The apt is simple, quiet, tasteful & cozy. Johann is a very good host with excellent communication and a very generous spirit. I was lucky to find his place on here during a very busy weekend in Ojai with short notice.
The place was exactly as Johan described and the quiet retreat I was hoping for!
Johann was an excellent host. He was honest and upfront, communicated very well, and went out of his way to make sure our say with him was the best it could be. I would highly recommend Johann and this apartment to anyone looking for a quiet and relaxing place to stay in Ojai.
The home and property were beautiful! My girlfriend and I spent 2 nights and had such a great time we spent more time at Johann's place then expected just because of its peaceful location.
Johann was very friendly, accommodating and interested in being sure our visit was a great one. Beautiful views all the way around and the vibe or energy of the grounds is quiet. The apartment was clean, neat and the bed was very comfortable. There is a lovely elevated tree house type platform where you can watch all sorts of birds and red tailed hawks fly around and the sunsets from here are spectacular! I recommend that you visit!
Johann gave us a very warm welcome and was a great host overall. The listing description was accurate, but it cannot capture the magic of this place. The house is located atop a beautiful hill, quiet, with a great view. Highly recommended.
