Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • This place is fantastic!! Marcia and Mark are super sweet and very gracious hosts. The yurt is beautiful, peaceful, magical, and very relaxing. We originally had plans to go hike and explore some nearby trails, but the yurt was so great we ended up not going anywhere! It really does have everything you need. Plus we had a great time playing with the pets! We love this place and will certainly be back :)

  • I rented this magical yurt for my boyfriend's belated 30th birthday present. We absolutely loved it. Cozy, comfortable, eclectic, and it had everything we needed. Also nice and quiet but still very close to to town. Thank you so much Mark and Marcia! We will definitely be back :)

  • We stayed in the Yurt April 6-8. We loved it and had a fabulous time. The yurt has plenty of room to move around. It is equipped with everything you need. We did not need to ask for anything. It was very clean, and the bed was very comfy and warm. Marcia and Mark were very gracious hosts. We will certainly be back!

  • The yurt is spectacular with homey touches and everything we needed to relax, unwind, work and veg to your heart's content. Amazingly located in the middle of everything with a short walk to the main shopping area, as well as the park and hiking. Marcia and Mark did a beautiful job of making us feel both welcome and left alone. Our stay was a treasure. We'll be back!

  • Heaven in a Yurt!!! This place was absolutely amazing and my fiancé and I could not have asked for a more perfect start to our engagement weekend! It's so peaceful, clean, and cozy! Marcia and Mark were such great and welcoming hosts and I cannot wait to return. I wish we could have stayed more than one night, but we made our stay in Ojai a memorable one thanks to this lovely spot. The decor inside and setup is perfect! And she said YES, so I must have done something right.Thank you both for such a great kickoff to our weekend getaway. Hope to see you soon!

  • This is the second time we have stayed in the yurt....and we LOVED it again. The location is perfect, the bed is so comfy, and I am addicted to the outdoor shower. I can't imagine staying any place else in Ojai.

  • The yurt was all that we hoped for and the comfort of the bed was more than we could ever have wished for!
    We arrived jet lagged from our flight from the UK and gently unwound in the tranquility of Ojai. The outdoor shower and bath were great, we warmed ourselves by the wood fire and sat under the trees. The proximity of the little shops and the organic store was an added bonus. Would we return? Absolutely!

  • This was my first Air Bnb booking - and it was amazing. The Yurt really is so magical. It's beautiful on the inside. The floors are heated. The bed is so warm and comfortable. The hosts have set up a little nook for a firepit, shower and bath right outside the Yurt... it's like your own little paradise. We only got to stay one night, but we'll be back! Thank you Marcia and Mark for building such a lovely space. Xo, m
