The property has plenty of parking.

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.
Rural feeling very close to highways and cities. Peaceful and quiet.
Available nearby is Public Transportation/ Bus (two blocks away) will take you to Ventura or Ojai. In Ventura catch the Surfliner ((website hidden)) to anywhere up and down the California Coast! The train is great for bicyclists.
The local bike trail, a few block from the house, goes all the way from Ojai through Oak View to the ocean in Ventura and connects to another bike route along the coast.
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.

Hot water knob in shower is all the way to the right, barely on.
Careful pulling out propane tank under the bar-b-que. The hose is short.

I am an artist and am very quiet and respectful.
I love to garden and hike and walk on the beach. I practice yoga and eat organic foods. I also love to watch films and frequent film festivals.
My three sons grew up in Telluride, Colorado and I lived there with my husband for many years. I grew up in Mexico City.
My husband and grown sons travel a lot so I would love to have you as my guests. You will love the property and cottage and location!
