This works for groups of friends, couples with kids, and couples who take advantage of the entire space. We provide sheets, pillows and soft fuzzy blankets for the extra futons.

The atmosphere at Glen Muse has been described as "youth hostel, but much nicer!" by many of our traveling guests. You won't get the sense that you're in someone else's home, rather, you may start to feel like you are part of a community! Many travelers pass through here, from around the world, and you never know who you may share glass of wine with poolside. One thing we do know, the Muse always attracts amazing people, with incredible stories!
You'll have shared access to several rooms in the main house, including the music room with a grand piano, the cozy living room with fireplace and beautifully carved oak accents. There's also the formal dining room, well stocked library, and the enormous gourmet kitchen.
The Pool and Grounds
The Glen Muse Estate encompasses 4 beautiful homes on 3.5 acres. Enjoy the sprawling grounds, with sparkling salt water pool and hot tub, full volley ball court on beach sand, basketball court, horseshoe pit, koi pond and park-like lawn.
While your suite is very private, there may be guests in the other half of the house during your stay. Please try to keep noise levels down after 10pm.
The kitchen is shared, sometimes by me if I'm home, and sometimes by other guests. Please clean up immediately after using it. Don't leave dirty dishes in the sink, or crumbs on the counter. Please label all food that you put into the fridge or freezer, and remove all of your food when you leave.
Out of respect for the environment, we choose to save energy whenever possible. Please turn off lights when you leave your room, and heater/AC if you'll be gone all day.
There is no smoking indoors. If you choose to smoke outside, please go to the far side of the pool, or by the fountain so that the smoke doesn't disturb other guests or get inside the house. Please don't leave butts in the landscaping, make sure everything gets into a trash can. Thank you!
The master suite and the rest of the Glen Muse house was a wonderfully unique place to stay for the four of us. All of my friends have expressed interest in returning for their own celebrations! The suite is huge, and the direct staircase to the pool area was an added bonus. We enjoyed breakfast in the nook both mornings we were there. The space was clean, unique, and relaxing. The neighborhood was extremely nice and quiet, yet a quick two-minute drive to the main part of town. Love that we spent our time in a beautiful house instead of a standard hotel room, which would not have been nearly as memorable. Jeska, the manager onsite, was sweet, welcoming, helpful, and flexible. We loved our time there, and hope to be back very soon!
The 2 bedroom master suite with sauna and private balcony over looking the pool, gardens, and hills is amazing. The place is so big you feel like you're in your own house. Very relaxing, great hosts, and the house is conveniently located to downtown Ojai. I highly recommend staying here and I'll be back.
This unique property suited our small group very well. Although I missed the note about the two rooms having no doors between them, we appreciated the heated floors in the bathroom, the huge and comfy round bed, the hot tub, the fire pit, and the barbecue! We hope to rent the entire house next year for our pre-conference relaxation.
I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to stay in this beautiful home. With my daughter home from college on winter break, the master suite offered us a 5-star experience with just enough privacy. I was amazed at the architectural detail inside the house, especially the beautiful stained glass. We found ourselves spending what little time we had relaxing on the private deck, which was covered with an amazing mosaic tile, which I'm sure is a story in itself. We conveniently cooked several of our meals in the well-equipped kitchen We were disappointed not to have met our hosts, but the communication was excellent and we had no problem getting settled in. Our only regret was not taking advantage of the pool and jacuzzi. I would love to visit again for longer than just two nights in order to fully enjoy the property
This was an awesome visit! We felt like we were in a palace! We loved the salt water pool for cold dips & the jacuzzi was so nice & fresh with no chlorine. We liked that it heats up and then empties out so it's clean for the next soak. (we had a little trouble warming it one day but as soon as we told Jeska she had it fixed immediately.) We travel to lots of hotsprings & love Matillija but some of our party preferred the ease & pure waters at home there! The Spa bathroom was heavenly. I took a zillion steam baths, gave myself facials & enjoyed the sauna. The kids loved the heavenly bubble bath jacuzzi with their uncle and girlfriend. We hope to come back often! Jeska was also great texting us information about things. (We did have two snoring men in our party so would love it if there were glass doors between the rooms someday....or even optional thick curtains for privacy & sound.) it was so nice that they were kid tolerant & didn't mind the kids in the library, burning sage in the fireplace, etc. Even when our car broke down we were in bliss to enjoy a little more time touring the property, having tea under the veranda & playing volleyball. Thank you!!!! What an amazing first time airbnb experience!(:
I am so sorry this is late but this only reinforces how wonderful our week-end was wonderful. The home is way more beautiful than pictured - it's exuisite! But what made it so was the graciousness of our host Darakshan. There was another family staying on site and they were terrific. I mention this because we were all exhausted and needed a place to relax and regroup. Not to have worried - the tone set was one of peace and quiet while enjoying the beauty of the surrounding area. We walked, hiked, shopped, enjoyed the outdoor bookstore down the street, and rested in luxury - seriously, I lived in the jacuzzi and sauna. And my son got the chance to play a few tunes on the grand piano Was a perfect week-end. Thanks to Darakshan for his kindness.
We absolutely loved this location. especially the pool and the kitchen. The beds were great too. Jeska is very welcoming and helpful.

About the Host, Darakshan
I'm delighted and fascinated by the enormous changes happening in our world, where hidden wonders are emerging, where endless surprising opportunities are available as we collectively search for a better life. I love peaceful Ojai, steeped in nature and filled with creative people: artists, musicians, healers, philosophers, gardeners, poets, entrepreneurs, mystics. We are friends sharing our unique gifts.
I appreciate thoughtful and heartful conversation.
Sometimes I'm hard to find, maybe because I'm intently working or happily traveling. So my sweet and helpful assistant Jeska will likely host you. Jeska is a warm and creative being whose interests include sustainable housing, ecovillages, vintage clothing, playing in the vegetable garden, and hiking the gorgeous local trails with her beloved, Kevin.
