We loved our stay at Mark & Marcia's yurt! If you're looking for a nice relaxing getaway- this is the place. I wanted to surprise my boyfriend with a relaxing mini vacation and to just get outside of the city (LA). This yurt was perfect for him. Mark & Marcia are such a sweet couple and were so welcoming but also respectful of our privacy. The outdoor shower was amazing!! You feel like you're in the middle of no where and we felt so free. Their yurt is super private with fencing and bamboos planted in the sides. There's also a fire pit that we cooked our dinner and s'mores with. Very romantic at night with the twinkly lights as well. The kitchen inside the yurt was adorable and had everything we needed (French press coffee too!). The bed was the most comfortable thing. It was peaceful and waking up to see the sunrise and trees swaying through the skylight of the yurt was bliss. After our coffee we did yoga in front of the yurt. It perfectly could fit 2 yoga mats :). It is also a great location! Didn't need our car at all. All the restaurants and shops are a block away. Marcia suggested Agave Maria's restaurant cause of their happy hour and we Loved that place. Good margaritas and tacos.
We already miss the yurt and definitely plan on returning sometime soon. Thank you Mark & Maria :)!

Thank you Marcia and Mark for sharing your space with us! Arriving was easy and mellow as we were greeted and shown the yurt! We only stayed for one night here but wish we could have stayed for more. The proximity to down town was a definite plus.
Cannot say enough good things about the outdoor shower and bathtub! So relaxing and fun!
This was the perfect place for my boyfriend and I to enjoy a little get away, Thank you again!
This was the best nights sleep I've had in a really long time! Marcia & Mark's yurt was the perfect peaceful getaway. The radiant heat in the floors felt amazing when I got back from a hike, the kitchenette was great for making a simple meal, the bed was comfortable, and the way it was decorated created such an inviting feel. I really can't think of a single thing I'd change!
Wonderful stay! Marcia even gave us fresh lemons as we were headed out. Must try!
Everything was fantastic. The yurt was clean, beautiful and very peaceful. I could walk to downtown and it was so close to hiking. Such a magical place. I really enjoyed myself imensely and can not wait to stay here again. Thank you so much Marica and Mark.
Our experience at the yurt was AMAZING!! A magical little stay, Marcia and Mark sure know how to make their guests feel welcome.
The yurt is a stone's throw away from downtown Ojai where all the main shops and restaurants are, yet it's located at the back of house/in a garden off a quiet street. Lots of privacy, it almost feels like you're glamping (cute colorful yurt, outdoor facilities, yet civilization just 2 mins away -- perfect combo)!
A couple of our favorite things:
1. List of "things to do recommendations" created by hosts
2. Outdoor shower - great temperature and pressure
3. Hot tub
4. Privacy (Our hosts were out of town and had friends staying in the house, but we didn't see them)
5. Plenty of street parking
6. Walking distance to basically everything except the hiking trails, olive oil ranch, and meditation mount which are a short drive
7. THE COLORS!
Would definitely recommend staying here! perfect weekend getaway.
Thank you Marcia and Mark!
The yurt was so lovely! It is situated in a quiet, residential street just a couple minutes' walking distance to all the cute shops of Ojai's main street. It was very clean and charming and had all the amenities you could ask for. Great place to stay.
My husband Mark & I have been married almost 43 almost wonderful years and we are still enjoying all that Ojai and life have to offer!
We love our kids and grandkids and large extended/adopted family, our dog Lily and cat Cordy. We have enjoyed hosting a large amount of lovely people and are relatively new to Airbnb. Looking forward to meeting you.
We enjoy art sculpture, building world class climbing gyms, care giving,
nutritional research, hiking, rock climbing, dancing, exploring, Ojai, visiting with our friends and family and animals and traveling.
