Interaction with Guests
I am available to greet you, make activity suggestions or take care of any special needs you may have and will respect your privacy.
The neighborhood is extremely quiet and safe and is conveniently located midway between the ocean, Lake Casitas and downtown Ojai.
It is best to have your own car. Trolley service stops at the bottom of the hill (one long steep block). The bike path goes from the bottom of our hill to either Ojai or the ocean. Bikes are available for rent in downtown Ojai.
