The space

10 minutes to the beach and 10 minutes to Ojai and 10 minutes to Casitas Lake from this amazing secluded 1/2 acre compound on a breezy hill top. Enjoy unobstructed views from flower gardens and private shared hot tub area. Peaceful setting with fountain in garden, fire-pit, and enclosed yard. Outdoor spaces include patio with bar-bque and wicker table and chaise, another area with comfortable patio set for star gazing at night with fire-pit and the hot tub area with Mountain views and comfortable seating areas and extra wide chaise. Hot tub is treated with very little chlorine. Healthy alternative. Flowers everywhere!
The property has plenty of parking.

Guest access

Guests have access to yard and patios described above. Since the property is a compound, I may be staying in the Guest Room or there may be guests in the Guest Room Separate from the Cottage. Please see separate listing. The Cottage has it's own private patio off the kitchen.

Interaction with guests

I am very private and honor guests privacy and solitude. I will initially explain how things work and show them around. Often I travel so when guests come, I may not be here or will leave after a few days of their settling in, however I am always available to answer any and all questions via mobile phone and I have caretakers and gardeners who can help answer questions and help with maintenance.

Other things to note

Eco friendly property with water conservation a focus *(due to drought and planetary awareness) and healthy cleaning products. Gardens are organic with no sprays on property. Hot tub is light on chlorine. Doing our part to the best of our ability.
Nearby Ojai and Ventura which have great Farmer's Markets, shops and restaurants. Ojai has terrific hiking trails and excellent wine tasting. Ventura has wonderful beaches.
Santa Barbara is also close (45 minutes by car) and a fun place to spend the day. Very scenic and many, many attractions to visit.

We had a lovely stay in Carlisle's cottage. She has clearly put a lot of love and attentive touches into designing this little nest. She was unobtrusive but totally available and always helpful. Thanks, Carlisle!

Peaceful, eclectic place. Great location. Private. Enjoyed our time there. Wish we had more time to spend at the cottage itself, but we stayed busy! Carlisle was very kind and welcoming. Comfortable linens, full kitchen, amenities. Amazing. Felt like I was staying with family.

The house was comfortable and well stocked with whatever one needed. The rooms are a little on the small side and the kitchen does have a fairly low ceiling such that anyone over 6 feet tall could bump their heads. The location is nice and the area is pretty quiet. My main critique is with the outdoor area. If it were maintained better, it would be a very nice space. The vegetation was overgrown and much a lot of the furniture was worn out with some covered in bird droppings. We trimmed down the fire pit area and did enjoy a nice fire for the two evenings we were there. The garage next to the yard is occupied and you do share the yard. The people there kept to themselves as did we. The home is probably isn't the most toddler friendly place as the step up to the kitchen had some sharp corners and the screen door to the kitchen has no latch and opens up onto step up. I couldn't get the grill to ignite with the switch or matches, though I could light the burner. Ended up using the broiler for the steaks. Definitely need to bring the bug spray as you are near some wooded areas. The sticky paper on check in with dead spiders and a lizard was a little gross for us wimpy city slickers. Overall, it is a nice place, but is not for people who are expecting 5 star hotel.

Carlisle is a wonderful host. Logistics and check are very easy. The cottage is a great escape, in a quiet/rural residential area but only a 10 minute drive from Ojai town center. We were there with small children and everything worked well and she was very kid friendly.

Lovely place! We stayed at the start of the summer, so it hadn't had a deep cleaning yet. We had a few cobwebs, gnats, and dusty furniture, but a strong cleaning should spruce the place up! Close to Ojai -- about a $10 Lyft/15min ride.

Response from Carlisle:
The Cottage has been deep cleaned with a good spring cleaning. Thank you for the input. We are out in the country with all the glorious creatures and elements!

Carlisle's home was quaint and lovely! Everything was clean, very cozy and easy to find. House was unique in a very convenient location with good privacy. Excellent amenities (big beds, full kitchen, hot tub and firepit), and Carlisle was so kind and welcoming. Thank you so much!!
