This is a highly configurable house that contains two separate dwellings that can be integrated into a single house as originally designed.
Occasionally the main part of the house may be available minus the guest apartment. And vice versa. The original 3rd bedroom of the house has been converted into a multifunction room including kitchenette, however a bed can be put in there to re-create a private bedroom if needed.

Near the Ojai - Ventura bike path. House is 2 miles from downtown Ojai and 11 minutes to Old town Ventura. There is an Ojai Trolly bus stop & Bus to Ventura about a 10 minute walk from house.

Perfect for conscious creative project, write that book or take a much needed retreat.

Guest Access

This is the main house on a 2.5 acre property that includes 2 other inhabited guest houses.

Interaction with Guests

I try to be here to greet guests however since I live in the house, therefore I can only offer it if I'm planning to be away. So sometimes I necessarily need to leave before the rental starts. In this case I can talk you in over the phone or sometimes call a neighbor or my brother to assist. Usually no assistance is required.

The Neighborhood

This exclusive neighborhood is a little known treasure of Ojai. A long ridge with larger properties flanked by a 500 hundered acre ranch property to the south and the wide open

Getting Around

The bike & horse path is conveniently located at the bottom of the hill providing easy biking or safe walking access to Ojai 2 miles away or Ventura Beach 11 miles the other direction. There is also an Ojai Trolley stop about 10 minutes walk from the house that provides free transport to Ojai and Meiners Oaks.

Other Things to Note

This property is one of a kind. The views may be some of the very best in Ojai. The animal life here is ver special with all kinds of bird life including two glorious pea hens that have taken up residence recently.
I have an amazing cat named Momo who lives on the property and is self sufficient. He hunts and is fed by neigbors who love him when I'm out of town. Feel free to interact with him as much or as little as you wish. He is welcome to stay nights indoors (not in the apartment portion please) or he's fine to roam the night. He tends to intuitively move to the neighbors when guests rent the house.

Ojai, California, United States · Member since July 2011

I'm an Ojai native, a father and an expert at creative living.
I grew up in Ojai and I absolutely love it here!
I have lived in Europe and travelled a lot. I moved back to Ojai after my daughter was born because its a perfect place to live and raise a child.
It offers a simple high quality of life.

I live on a magic hilltop with amazing views and abundant & cheerful animal life.
I live a healthy lifestyle, eat fresh and good food, exercise, practice yoga, Qigong and meditate.
I love exotic music. I enjoy the outdoors and the west coast culture.
I work as a creative director, photographer and film director.

I hope you come to Ojai for a relaxing, diverse and recharging experience.
