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 around on occasion, gardening or doing artwork. 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, 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.

A lot of miscommunication and over promising lead to a disappointing and frustrating stay.

We really enjoyed the comfort and charm of the cottage. It felt very cozy and warm. The beds were comfy, the AC in the living room was much needed and appreciated during those three hot days, and the outdoor space was fabulous and beautiful! Everything at the cottage is simple but full of character and charm. We were able to cook, barbecue, watch movies, play games with the kids, jacuzzi, enjoy a fire, and listen to music under the stars. The backyard is so pretty at night with all the lights! We also enjoyed that the cottage was so close to the bike path and just within a few minutes' ride to downtown Ojai. Carlisle was quick to respond to our messages and attempted to make us feel at home. We had a beautiful and relaxing weekend at the cottage!

While we did not meet Carlisle until our 4th day staying in her airy mountain retreat, her directions were clear and she made herself available by text message. The house has 2 small but very comfortable bedrooms. The living room and kitchen area were more than adequate for 4, no problem for the two 6 foot sized guys. The outdoor gas grill complimented the extremely well equipped kitchen, making cooking a delight over 3 days & nights. Evening breezes cooled the outside patio, allowing for pleasant outdoor dining experiences, after days exploring the beach or the mountains. Carlisle recommended the perfect hike route for us, overlooking Ojai’s valley. Plenty of local restaurants or grocery stores in Oak View, Ojai, or Ventura. We look forward to our next stay at Carlisle’s retreat house.

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!
