The Ojai Valley
Ojai's charms are many. The community has long been known as a haven for artists, musicians and health enthusiasts. Walk from our front door and enjoy incredible hiking trails, amazing restaurants, vintage shopping, or the famous Ojai Farmers Market. We're minutes from golf at two celebrated courses and fifteen minutes from the ocean and mountains.
We're an easy walk to downtown Ojai where you'll find plenty of entertainment. There is a local trolley that can take you to Meiner's Oak, a neighboring community, and public buses and cabs that can take you to Ventura.
While your suite is very private, there may be other guests in the main house during your stay. Please keep noise levels down in the pool and main house 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.
There are no additional guests allowed please.
Out of respect for the environment, we choose to save energy whenever possible. Please conserve water, and turn off lights and heater/AC when you leave your room.

A truly warm and spectacular experience. Darakshan and Jessica were both friendly and flexible, the house grand, and the pool and grounds magical. We'll be back!
We had such a great time at our last three days in California at Darakshans house. It´s such a lovely, amazing, cozy and quiet place to be. It was a pleasure. Jessica was very friendly, nice and we felt very welcome. We defintitly want to come back some time. We enjoyed the pool, the jacuzzi and the basketball place so much.
Staying at Glen Muse was a real treat and one of the highlights of our California vacation. We were very comfortable in our 2 room/1 bath suite and our 2 girls really enjoyed having their own beds. All of our beds were very comfortable and the roomy bathroom made getting ready for the day very easy. And the pool....simply amazing! It was like staying in our own personal resort. The pool/hot tub and surrounding area are just gorgeous! The gardens are beautiful and it was delightful to watch the hummingbirds flit around. It was a great place for kids as well as adults - we wish we had been able to stay longer! There were several other guests staying at Glen Muse and we really enjoyed meeting and getting to know them as well as Jeska, our hostess. Jeska was very nice and helpful and shared some interesting information about the area. She was also helpful with providing information on restaurants in Ojai and the Meditation Center.
During our visit, we took the Island Packers Ferry out to the Channel Islands (Scorpion Bay on the island of Santa Cruz) for a day trip to the Marine sanctuary. Although Jeska had not done the trip herself, she did provide a great tip to pick up breakfast and lunch at the Westridge Market, where there is quite a selection of organic foods. If you go and want to snorkel, be sure to rent your gear the day before as the shops don't open until 10 and the last ferry leaves at 10. We ended up purchasing 2 sets of snorkel/mask sets at the Target in Oxnard since we didn't realize until too late. We actually saved money not renting but since the water is pretty cold, wet suits would have been helpful.
If you are staying in Ojai, consider Glen Muse - you will love it!
The Glen Muse is spectacular. It is one of my all time favorite places to stay. A 5 star experience from any perspective.
Thank you Jeska, for begin such an inviting host and sharing such an extraordinary place.
The mini-estate was more than we were expecting, both the house and the grounds were very well cared for; the air sweet, the peace and solitude abundant, the jacuzzi just right, the town just close enough to reach on foot, our hosts in evidence but not intrusive-- our stay was simply delightful. Would return in a heartbeat.
This place is incredible and the host is top shelf. Jeska, the house manager, was responsive, warm and so helpful with our many questions. The beds were very comfortable and the house has an easy relaxed vibe to it. Plenty of places to lounge, relax & feel pampered. The good news for me - a group of ladies and I are taking over the whole house starting tomorrow for 4 days. Another review to come soon.
Our stay a Glen Muse was exceptional in every way. It is beautiful, warm and welcoming. Jeska is an absolute delightful hostess. While in Ojai we would not stay anywhere else.
We will not be able to come back soon enough!

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.
