Marcia and Mark's yurt in Ojai is the perfect quick getaway from LA! Marcia was very responsive to my messages confirming a few things before we arrived and she met my boyfriend and I when we arrived. She was very friendly and showed us everything we needed - she invited us to join her and her friends in the evening if we would like, and then left us to enjoy. Since we were there for a romantic getaway, we didn't join her, but appreciated the offer (and that we were left to ourselves the rest of the stay). This is one luxurious yurt - the bed was incredibly comfortable, the small kitchen area has wine glasses, tea, and plates at the ready, and the yurt's bright décor was homey and fun (especially the lava lamp!) The best part was the view of the trees from the bed, the location (2 blocks from town, half a block from the Sunday farmer's market), and of course, the outdoor tub (which was clean with hot water - very relaxing). While the yurt is in their backyard, which we were curious about before we saw it, there is a separate entrance (with a cool artistic gate!) and a fence that does make it feel private and separate from the house. We thought the set-up was very well done. Thanks for the relaxing stay, Marcia and Mark - I now aspire to have a yurt of my own some day.
We highly recommend staying with Marcia and Mark! The yurt is very comfortable and the floor is heated so it stayed very cozy even though it was February. I loved hearing the great horned owl hooting in the tree nearby and waking to the sounds of birds singing. There were nice perks like coffee and tea and bagels. It was fun to use the private outdoor shower too. They are very nice people and I would definitely stay again.
This was the perfect getaway for us. We were looking to escape the city and reconnect - Marcia & Mark's yurt provided an intimate, quiet, bohemian setting just for that. It was a chilly night, but there were plenty of blankets to cuddle under and the bed is insanely comfortable! We made a fire in the pit outside and enjoyed the sounds you don't get to hear in the city. It is within walking distance of all the shops and restaurants - great location! It's all a little rustic with an outdoor shower and bath and the toilet only separated by a curtain. It's like glamping! We loved every minute of it. Thank you again for having us. We will be back!
An amazing experience staying in a private Yurt walking distance to Ojai Ave! February was an amazing time of year in Ojai. I Highly recommend staying in Marcia and Mark's Yurt.
Beautiful, serene place, Would highly recommend, best Ojai vibe!
Once you get past the obstacle course on the side yard and enter into the yurt it is great. Ojai is beautiful and the location is perfectly located near downtown.
Loved this sweet yurt. It was the perfect home for a few days in Ojai. Being walking distance from town made our trip even better.
The yurt, amazing. The location, amazing. Ojai, very cool. The farmer's market on Sunday was one block away. You can't beat the location. Literally blocks from good bars, restaurants and little thrift stores. I helps to relax when you don't have to get in your car all weekend. And the yurt is everything you expect from the pictures. Very nice.
What an experience! Would stay again.
What a magical place! My partner and I had a lovely couple nights staying in this cozy, unique yurt. Our hosts were very accommodating to a last minute schedule change, and when we arrived the place was warm a and comfortable, with magazines and brochures to help us find things to do around town. The location is central to the quaint downtown area of Ojai, and we were able to walk everywhere: restaurants, wine tasting, shopping.
The yurt is cozy with heated floors, a bed to sink into, and a cute kitchen area for light food prep and tea/coffee making. The rustic vibe and colorful decor is so perfect with the feel of the town, surrounded by mountains, nature and clear night skies. There (email hidden) separated by curtains, so be sure you are staying with someone with whom you are very comfortable! The shower is outside and open, as in the bath, but it is private from the main house and neighbors so it is plenty comfortable.
I highly recommend this place, and we will certainly be booking again-- our two nights/ day and a half was not nearly enough!
