Marcia and Mark
Marcia was super friendly and nice as soon as we got there. She showed us around and let us know where everything was. she was even super nice enough to bring us extra sheets to sleep in. The yurt is really a one of a kind experience. It makes you realize you don't need a lot in life to be happy. The outside shower was by far my favorite thing there. It was so refreshing to shower in open air! The location is also great in Ojai as everything is walking distance. I really appreciate the opportunity to have stayed in such a magical place. Thank you so much.
Marcia and Mark met me right as I arrived. They kept in contact with me the whole time and everything went smoothly.They made me feel right at home. The neighborhood is beautiful and lined with tall Oak trees. The Yurt was everything and more. The outdoor shower and claw foot tub was my favorite. And to end the night by a toasty fire right under the stars was such a wonderful, organic and relaxing experience. I will definitely be staying here again.
Mark and Marcia are the loveliest people! It was overall been a beautiful experience. The location, the yurd. The best way to summarize it would be by saying it was a short term stay in paradise. Thanks!
This place is magical! The yurt is so beautifully decorated, and comes with pretty much everything you'd need. Ojai is a cute little town, and the yurt is just a block away from a yummy natural foods store and a couple miles from some lovely hikes. Would definitely recommend for a dreamy getaway!
This was a great place to stay! The Yurt was amazing, the bed super comfy, showering under the stars was epic and the area is beautiful. Centrally located to everything we barely had to use the car except for the tastings. Marcia and Mark were sick during our stay and kindly stayed out of reach as not to get us sick. Everything was stocked and ready for us to relax and enjoy the weeknd. I would recommend this to everyone!
