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.

The neighborhood

Rural feeling very close to highways and cities. Peaceful and quiet.

Getting around

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.

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!!

Carlisle was the most gracious host. She made sure everything was perfect during our stay. Her cottage had all the personal touches of home. Carlisle gave us a personal tour of her garden and suggested a great place nearby for breakfast. We couldn't have asked for a better stay.

I spent two weeks in Carlisle's cottage on a personal fun/business retreat to get away from the cold and snow. It was perfect for me. My daughter visited from LA on the weekends and she liked it as well. Even though it rained a lot while I was there, the place is cozy, has good internet connectivity and I was able to get in both work and play. The location is close to the Ojai mountains and the Ventura beaches. It is also close to the Santa Barbara museums for rainy day activities. The cottage has a very nice well equipped kitchen which we used a lot. Carlisle is friendly, available and a perfect host. She can help you with anything you may need or want to do. I hope to come back again sometime.

We loved staying at Carlisle's place. It was close to our daughter's family in Oak View, was equipped with everything we needed, and immaculate. Would definitely stay again.

We arrived a little later than planned to the cottage, but Carlisle was very acccomodating with our schedule. We stayed 9 nights over Christmas at the cottage. It is a small space, but it was perfect for our family and all our presents! The kitchen is stocked with any tool, knife, or pot you need to cook a good old Southern Christmas dinner. The gas stove is a plus along with the double oven. Be aware that the kitchen table is small to fit 5 or 6 people around, but we managed nicely. The beds are very comfortable and we never ran out of hot water even with a teenager in the house! The location was perfect and convenient to Ventura, Ojai, and our family in Oxnard. The local grocery has anything you might need and is right down the street - they carry lots of organics and supplements as well. We enjoyed the hot tub and the firepit on cool December nights. We will definitely want to stay here again when we come to visit family.

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!
