You will enjoy a lovely room with its own private entrance, bathroom and sauna. It adjoins a deck with a hot tub and patio furniture featuring spectacular views of the Topa Topa Mountains and a great place to observe Ojai's unique "Pink Moment."
Cradled by the rolling hills of the Ojai Valley, Casa del Cielo is a tranquil oasis full of hidden surprises.
The extensive grounds offer several delightfully novel touches. The path to your room passes underneath a natural wisteria archway as it leads you to an adjoining redwood deck, a great spot to take in a panoramic view of the lawn and native plant garden with the majestic hills beyond.
From the deck, a few steps takes you through a rose garden, then down to a large lawn, encircled by native foliage.
Continue on through an arbor in the center of the lawn down a short path, and you enter a Zen-like outdoor retreat, hugged by the hills and sheltered by tall bamboo and lush greenery. The trickling you hear is a stream, flowing from a waterfall in the Japanese Garden to your right.
Cross one of the two Asian-style footbridges and follow the stream to a large lily pond. In the corner opposite the pond, a redwood gazebo is poised on the edge of a deep canyon. It provides another ideal spot for enjoying a spectacular view of the Topa Topa Mountains and the legendary “Pink Moment.” *
*Surrounded by a rare east-west mountain range, the Ojai Valley is one of few places in the world to have a "Pink Moment" occur as the sun is setting. The fading sunlight creates brilliant shades of pink and lavender for several minutes on the Topa Topa bluffs, more than 6,000 feet above sea level at the east end of the valley.
In addition to the private sauna in the guest bathroom and the outdoor spa adjoining your room, you will also have access to the kitchen and laundry room.

Liz and Steve were gracious hosts, I will definitely stay with them next time I am in Ojai. My room was very clean and spacious with a large comfortable bed. The connected private bath included a redwood sauna room which I enjoyed most every evening. Divine! The private entrance was a plus, but the view topped off the experience with breathtaking panorama of a mountainous skyline. All in all, a most enjoyable week for me.
Liz and Steve were wonderful hosts and their home is very charming!
The room was simple and clean, and the bathroom included a private sauna, which we loved :)
The location was a bit out of the main part of the city, but the grounds were delightful (with some of the best stargazing I've seen!)
Would definitely recommend this place!
We had a spectacular 2 day/night vacation :)
The hosts were extremely hospitable and welcoming, and also gave us the privacy we wanted. The spa and sauna were amazing, as were the views and nature on their property. The house is just a few minutes' drive from Ojai, is a quaint town with lots to browse though.
Definitely recommend this place if you're looking for a nice getaway with beautiful nature, star gazing, etc.
