Place was lovely and quiet; about a 10 minute drive into town. We loved the hammock in the beautiful, sweet smelling garden! Nova the kitty stays outside and is adorable. Room is cozy and has everything you might need including a mini kitchen of sorts (mini fridge, toaster oven, coffee/ tea, microwave).

Laurie provides a very peaceful and calming environment. Her communications were very timely, and she always let me know when she was available, without being intrusive. There is no kitchen, but it has a microwave, toaster and mini-frig. The location is not far from downtown Ojai, but does require a car.

This was the perfect spot - quiet and peaceful, and just minutes by car from the center of Ojai. Laurie was a wonderful host, very kind and communicative, and we had a lovely stay.

We had a great weekend stay at Laurie's place. It is very comfortable and relaxing. It's a suburban location though so you'll need a car to get around, but it's just a few minutes drive into town. Laurie and Nova were both great hosts!

A great find! I came for 2 nights to get away from the city for my birthday. Laurie is a wonderful host and mostly stays out of your from what I could tell in my short time there. She has been doing this for a while so everything you will need to know is all printed out in a Book of Knowledge in your room. You are about a 6-8 minutes drive away from the main part of Ojai. The room is small but I did not feel cramped at all. Everything you will need is there. She has an AMAZING garden and we were lucky enough to be there when everything was in bloom...including the tangerine tree! This is a wonderful Air BnB to just lounge around in. Bring a book and your lover and just relax. I found myself walking around town really just wanting to get back to the house to relax in the sun. The only thing to note is the room is attached to the house. There is a door that does not open that separates you from the rest of the house. That is all. It wasn't a big deal to me but, I think Laurie was having guests over or maybe a dinner party and you could definitely hear their conversations and commotions. Nothing was overly loud or obnoxious but just something to consider. We also felt the need to modify our volume to some degree so she couldn't hear us. All in all, I would definitely recommend this place and I myself would book here again! Thanks Laurie
