We live in a lovely large Mediterranean style home in a quiet private location 4 miles from downtown Ojai and 20 minutes from the Ventura beach. The room is large with a private entrance, outdoor patio, large lawn and view of the Topa Topa mountains and the Pink Moment. There is an adjacent private full bath with a tub and a shower and access to a large fridge. We supply a hot water kettle, tea & coffee and a small microwave along with an orchard of oranges, plates, silverware, cups and pure water. We also supply shampoo, body lotion and soap so no need to pack all that. We are quiet, peaceful people, open minded and joyful. There is parking and you will need a car as the bus does not come nearby. We have a cat so our home wouldn't work if you are allergic. No pets, please.
Guests have access to a large frig, our large yard, their own private patio with a comfortable chair/swing, outdoor table and chairs.
We enjoy interacting with our guests and giving them any help or information they may need to make their stay more enjoyable. We are both outgoing, friendly people but we also are absolutely fine with minimal interaction. It is all up to the guest. We sometimes have people who stay here while on a silent retreat and we rarely see them. Others enjoy exchanging life stories and we enjoy that too.
This neighborhood is made up of friendly, quiet folks. There are no streetlights so you can really see the starts at night. The houses are nice and kept up. It is safe and we never worry about walking around at night. We often hear owls and coyotes yipping in the distance.
The bus does not come by our road so its about 1 mile to walk to the bus. A car really is needed.
Over and over we are told that our guests sleep wonderfully in the Cal-King bed. A good night's sleep makes for a happy vacation!

Barbara and Bill are a lovely couple.Very hospitable and nice!The room was spacious and very comfortable. We had our own patio with our own privacy.
It felt like home!
Barbara and Bill were excellent hosts. The room is very comfortable and private. I used their (also private) deck, overlooking a garden, progressing from a lawn to something that will certainly be much more interesting, and many oaks. Lots of time for reading and resting. A very quiet neighborhood, and no particular reason to lock the doors. Even a peripatetic wild turkey. Highly recommended.
The room and bathroom were clean, nicely kept and decorated pleasantly. The space was very calming. Their home is nestled in trees and greenery. They welcomed me to walk the grounds, as well.
It is a quiet restful place with pretty land scaping. I felt very lucky to have found it for my business trip and yearned for an extra free day to enjoy the stay more!
The large wrap around porch just outside the room was a nice place for enjoying breakfast and to do some writing.
Barbara and her husband were both very gracious about privacy. They were available if I needed anything but gave me lots of space.
I would definitely stay with them again!
Oh, Lorelei, I'm so sorry you did not see the blinds on all the windows that pull down with a string. I'm sorry you did not mention this because that could have been remedied quickly. Well, now you know so next time you come you know you can have complete privacy. Thanks so much for pointing this out. We will make sure future guests know how to work the blinds. We've just never had this mentioned before so didn't realize they could be overlooked. Have a lovely day!
Barbara's home is lovely. The room is private with a great little patio to watch the sun rise or set against the trees and mountains in Ojai. Beautiful garden with birds, butterflies, and squirrels running through the trees. I loved hanging out and relaxing.
Bill and Barbara are truly accommodating people with a very peaceful home.
Barbara and Bill were wonderful hosts. They made every effort to ensure we had a pleasant stay. The room was spacious and we enjoyed the Cal King bed.
We loved sitting on the porch swing drinking a coffee and looking at the mountains while listening to the birds each morning.
The neighborhood is charming, we found no reason to bother locking our doors.
Barbara and Bill were wonderful hosts, and their home is an absolutely stunning sanctuary. Their gentle, kind, quiet presence made me feel both comfortable and accepted while I visited. They were so helpful with their suggestions of hikes and spaces to visit, were incredibly flexible about my stay schedule, and I genuinely enjoyed every moment of our time together. I can not wait for my next opportunity for a visit! Their sweet cat Shiloh was a love, and the oranges they gave me from their yard were the most delicious things I have ever tasted… sincerely. (You guys should give Sunkist some pointers)!!! :) The bed in the room was so comfortable it almost kept me from getting out and exploring, but the beautiful sunlight and views beckoned me. I simply can not speak highly enough about my time staying with Barbara and Bill. I will most definitely be back very, very soon!!! Thank you!!!
This was a perfect place for our stay in Ojai! The location was super convenient to both downtown Ojai and Ventura. Our hosts were so gracious and the room was lovely and private. Could not have been better!
BArbara and Bill are amazing, beautiful people. I loved my stay in Ojai at their place. It was a safe, nurturing place to be and I will go back!
Barbara and Bill have a beautiful space to share! The pictures do not fully convey the spaciousness and beauty of the room and patio. It was large, private and quiet. The king bed was extremely comfortable! I was participating in a rather intense process workshop and needed a quiet, clean and calm environment to rest. This was perfect! Thank you Barbara and Bill for being such gracious hosts!
