Liz and Steve are great. Very welcoming. You have amazing privacy, a great jacuzzi under the stars and an indoor sauna. The hiking was great and it's a 10 minute drive to town. Take a walk in the gardens and sit in the Gazebo, SO PEACEFUL! In town, we loved the wine tastings at Casa Barraca and the Olive Oil tastings at Carolina Gramm's place just down the block. Our only regret is we couldn't stay another 3 days. Enjoy!

The room was very private with a separate entry. The room also had a hot sauna inside and a hot tub on the deck. Very comfortable and homey. We had everything we needed including the use of refrigerator and the kitchen.

Fantastic weekend getaway!!! The place is as described. We use the jacuzzi twice. Make sure you use it at night and enjoy the sky full of stars. We also use the sauna once and it was excellent. The room is clean and there is cable TV, wifi, and snacks. Its basically like a hotel or even better. The area has some really nice and fun trails. Last day I did a 3mile walk/hike with my wife and it was perfect since most of it is on the shade. Place is close to Ojai town and not far from Santa Barbara. Definitely recommend this place. This is my best Airbnb experience to date.

Thank you for letting us stay in one of the most beautiful places we could imagine. Your house and garden are absolutely incredible and we couldn't imagine a better romantic getaway. You are great hosts - balancing good hospitality with allowing us our own space, and it is truly appreciated. We would love to stay here again!

We had a wonderful stay at Liz and Steve's place. It was very close to Ojai, but far enough out that we could enjoy beautiful views and privacy from the hot tub on the deck. Liz and Steve were great hosts too. It was great to be able to shop, wine taste, and hike during the day and return to such a beautiful place to relax in the evenings. We highly recommend this place!

The room has a private entrance that connects to the deck overlooking the mountains where the hot tub is located. It was hot and dry in Ojai, but that didn't stop us from soaking in the tub in the mornings and evenings (under the stars). Another favorite was the peaceful outdoor area completed with a gazebo where you can relax and enjoy the sounds of nature. The hosts Liz & Steve were a very sweet couple. They gave us privacy and were available when needed. This is a perfect place for a romantic getaway!

Liz User ProfileLiz is a superhost.

Liz grew up playing cowboys and Indians on the Illinois prairie.

She was born in the small town of Marseilles, just south of Chicago. Her parents owned a grocery shop, and later a hardware store, that served the 5,000 town residents. As a kid, Liz enjoyed bicycling, singing and hiking along the Illinois River with her younger sister. From a young age, Liz was an avid reader.

"There was a great library just down the street from our house and during the summer I would go there two to three times a week to restock my books," she says.

When she was 12 years old, Liz's family got their first television. Liz loved watching movies. Little did she know that years later she would wind up working in the film industry.

She left home to see more of the world and attend Oberlin College in Ohio where she studied psychology and literature.

After graduating from Oberlin, Liz decided to try big city life in New York. She began training as a social worker helping emotionally troubled children, but found she wasn't cut out for the job. After a few years, Liz moved to Los Angeles.

While at a friend's party, Liz met her future husband, Steve, a documentary filmmaker. While helping with his movies, she soon learned that the business wasn't all glamour.

"You can't imagine if you haven't done it," she said. "I was working on the technical side so there was a lot of stress and deadline pressure."

The hard work paid off when a project Liz and Steve worked on won an Academy Award for Best Live Action Short. In the 1970s, Liz took on her own directorial project, a documentary about home childbirth.

After 20 years of life in Los Angeles, Liz and her husband were ready for change. They looked all around Southern California for land on which to build their own house, but when a realtor showed them a hilltop property overlooking the Ojai Valley, there was no question about where they wanted to live.

They had no trouble fitting in with the arts community, and quickly became involved in the Ojai Film Society, and later, the Ojai Film Festival. Liz also enjoys writing, running the Literary Branch at the Art Center, and visiting the Ojai Library.

"I think It's important to have access to education and art," she said. "I want always to have the opportunity to learn and be exposed to excellence in the arts.”
