Marcia and Mark
We had a very nice experience staying, showering and sleeping under the Stars ! Marcia and Mark made sure we felt comfortable and we loved our stay !
Merci beaucoup: we will try to come back
Even though i was only there for a night i can honestly say that it was one of the best mini vacations i have had. Marcia was very welcoming and the area was beautiful. It felt as if i was in my own little world and for that small moment nothing else was relevant. I cant wait to visit again!
Marcia and Mark were most welcoming. Their Yurt retreat felt private, quiet, and peaceful. I appreciated feeling far away from usual daily life while still being in the heart of Ojai – and even only a short stroll away from a fantastic Sunday Farmer's Market. I would definitely return to this memorable place.
Mark and Marcia were excellent hosts. They were very warm and welcoming. The yurt was beautiful and exactly as described. Excellent location right in town and half a block from the farmers market! Had an amazing stay and would love to go back!
Loved loved loved the yurt! Such a special place to stay and I was very sad to leave. It's a lovely space both the inside and outside bits and showering outside was great! It's private and perfectly located for exploring Ojai. I will definitely be back! Marcia and Mark were around if I had any questions and very responsive. A fantastic stay all round.
Marcia and Mark's magical yurt was truly the perfect weekend getaway. While we didn't have the chance to really meet our hosts, the space was readily accessible and just as pictured. We loved the cozy bed, kitchenette and outdoor shower! There was also a small fire pit and lounge chairs available outside the yurt. In addition to the amazing space, their place is the perfect place to stay due to its accessibility to town. We walked everywhere which was a wonderful addition to our trip. There is also a farmer's market down the street on Sunday morning which was the perfect way to end our already wonderful trip. We would recommend Marcia and Mark's place to anyone in a heartbeat and we cannot wait to come back and stay again.
This place is one of the most magical places I have ever stayed in. It was such a joy and privilege to be surrounded by all the obvious care and attention that went into every detail of layout, construction, design and decoration. It is obvious that Marcia and Mark are talented artists who love their work. Everything was comfortable and... well, just awesome -- in the full sense of the word! The location is also ideal, two blocks from Rainbow Bridge (the local natural foods market), and two blocks from the main downtown area. I wish I could've stayed longer and plan to be back! It'd be such a great place for a couple, especially with the fire pit at night.
