  • Johann was a great host and the property was just as beautiful as the pictures on his profile. Prior the my stay, Johann called to chat about the trip and got me really excited about his property and my stay.

    Upon arriving, the guesthouse was very clean and stocked with fresh towels and linens. The main room was very bright and open so I made sure to keep the French doors open when I could. The view was spectacular and the property was very quiet. Johan's property was also close to downtown and the hiking trails.

    It was exactly what I had envisioned for my weekend getaway to Ojai and my very first Airbnb experience. If you're looking for a quiet and secluded trip, Johann's place is a must!

    Response from Johann:

    Thank you Daniel. You were literally a perfect guest. Could have only been better if we had actually hung out a bit together as you seem like a very good person to know. I'm sure it just meant you were busy making the most of your Ojai weekend.

  • Johann was an amazing host! On arrival, we found that he had picked us a vase of flowers and some citrus from around the property. He was always easy to get ahold of if we needed something, but otherwise left us to our own devices. His property feels secluded, but is only a 5-minute drive from downtown Ojai. There's a beautiful view from the deck, so we left the french doors open anytime we were home during the day. There's a great little fireplace with wood provided, so we were able to have a crackling fire one night. There is no TV (which is actually a very good thing for a weekend away), so we went to the adorable toy store in town called Serendipity and picked up a couple of games. Overall a completely wonderful experience; we'll be back. Thank you, Johann!

  • I have nothing but great things to say about my stay in Ojai. Johann is an extremely friendly and kind host, with a beautiful guest home. Combine the accommodations with unbeatable location, and it is the perfect weekend retreat.

    Thanks Patrick, hope you visit again.
    Next time you do check out my studio / gallery downtown (email hidden) I usually have some kind of unusual contemporary art exhibit hanging in my work space.

  • Johann offered a sweet space to do work in. Although he wasn't there, we stayed in contact every day. He was responsive and pleasant.

    He has an awesome fish.

  • WE loved our weekend in Ojai.
    Johanns guest house was in a great location; easy to get into town but far enough away to feel secluded.

  • A quiet private place very close to Ojai. The weather was hot when we went but the place was very cool due to trees and AC.

    Johann was very helpful and place was easy to find with Johann's direction + GPS.

    Thanks Kash.
    Nice to host you and share my property and the beautiful Ojai Valley with you. Keep growing those antlers!

  • Johann was a very gracious host and his property is beautifully located. He's also a talented artist and his work is wonderful to be around. My only two problems were getting to the apartment from the car on foot over pretty rough terrain after dark and the lack of a handrail by the stone steps down to the front door. Carmen, my dog, truly loved the whole place and would return in a heartbeat (she only chased the cat once). Generally it was a very nice and comfortable place to stay and relax and I would certainly recommend it to others.

    Response from Johann:

    Thank you Jean. I enjoyed your stay the few times we were able to connect. I'm sorry about the terrain and blame the gophers for making the lawn so bumpy. But it's their land too, and my cat enjoys keeping their population in check. I'm glad Carmen got one chase in... Momo needs to feel what it's like on the other side too!

  • My parents came from Texas for a visit and Johann's peaceful guest house was the perfect place to home base for our time in Ojai. From the time I first read about the space and the host I sensed in my heart that I had to stay there. Fresh-cut roses and a bowl of fruit welcomed us to the space. The views of the valley and trees were serene. I slept very peacefully during my stay.

    Even more than the rejuvenating home, I can't say enough about Johann's warmth and magnetic energy. He non-invasively checked our well-being and needs throughout our stay and provided graciously for our additional requests. When we returned home early one evening, he was working on his fabric and bamboo temple in the yard and he invited me up in it for a birds-eye view of the sacred Ojai valley. Being around Johann, you know you are in the presence of someone very grounded and centered, someone who loves people and loves to share his piece of Shangri-La with like-minded seekers. If you seek tranquility, natural beauty, and compassion, this is the place to stay.

    Response from Johann:

    Thank you Toby for your very kind words. I'm so glad you all had a fruitful trip. I know that parents can shift as we all age together. Look for that opening. Please stay in touch.

  • My boyfriend and I stayed in Johann's guest apartment over Memorial Day weekend and had a great trip! The apartment was clean and looks very much like the pictures. Johann's overall property was beautiful and the views were stunning. We were looking for a quiet, peaceful, private place to stay and this is exactly what we got! We also stopped by Johann's studio to check out an exhibit the first night we were in town, this is also a fantastic space if you are looking for a place to work. There's a ton of room and it's located in a great spot in the center of Ojai. Overall, we had a great trip. Johann was very helpful by suggesting great places to check out and good restaurants to go to- I definitely recommend reserving his place!

Owner / Creative Director spacemonkeycreative - Earths First Intergalactic Advertising Agency & Film Production Co.
Hi, I'm an Ojai native, a father and a creative. I grew up in Ojai and I absolutely love it here! I have lived extensively in Europe as well - Vienna, Paris, London, Hamburg, Prague and I once lived in Kiev for 7 years where I founded radioaktivefilm - the first commercial film production company in Ukraine! I can speak several languages including Russian & German. I moved back to Ojai after my daughter was born because I have yet to find a better place to live and raise a child than Ojai. It simply offers the highest quality of life I can find! I live on a magic hilltop with amazing views and abundant & cheerful animal life. I live a healthy body mind and spirit lifestyle. I eat amazingly fresh and good food, exercise, do yoga, Tai Chi & Qigong and meditate. I love music, I like to sing and occasionally Dj electronic & exotic music. I enjoy the outdoors and the west coast music & art festival culture. I've built art cars and camps at burning man and I recently built a 30' bamboo and fabric temple for the Lucidity festival in Santa Barbara. Now it's standing on my land here in Ojai. If you come stay, you'll see it! I work as a creative director at advertising agencies, as a director for TV commercials & music videos and as a commercial photographer for 27 years now. I own my own boutique creative agency - spacemonkeycreative - and commercial film production company - spacemonkeyfilm - right in downtown Ojai! There is even an option for you to work out of my studio if you need to. If you come to Ojai for creative development or for filming I can certainly help. I hope you come to Ojai for a wonderful life changing experience... guaranteed.
