About this listing
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 native garden with it's own patio.
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.
