  • I stayed here for my birthday valentine's weekend. I booked it very last minute and showed up after 10 pm... Jeska was amazingly accommodating. She greeted me and was available the whole time I was there, yet I didn't need anything so I rarely saw her. Jeska immediately told me about a retreat drawing a lot of people and the lack of privacy that I may encounter, I appreciated this transparency so much. Indeed there were a lot of folks, but I was able to stay completely to myself and quite private. The few folks I did meet were so lovely as the retreat was about love.
    The poolside retreat/sauna was so comfortable and it was such a treat to have a sauna in the suite! There is a lot of light, a great wifi connection, and a perfect large desk which is really all I needed for work. There are beautiful gardens to explore, a huge pool, jacuzzi, hiking trails, and I think a bunch more in the house that I didn't explore.
    Jeska was very generous at the end of my stay when I had some friends and family for a mini bday celebration. Jeska invited them to enjoy the place before I checked out! Of course, my family and friends are planning on booking a stay here and I will most certainly be back!

  • We were looking for a romantic getaway to relax but also get some outdoor fun (hiking, hot tubbing, swimming, etc.) and Glen Muse definitely hit the spot!
    Beautiful property and amazing location. Jeska was tremendously helpful and communicative. It was a pleasure meeting her and we can't wait to go back for another stay.

  • We had a lovely stay here for our anniversary weekend. The pool is amazing, the property even more so. The pool house where we stayed is very nice, though we didn't use the sauna (seemed redundant on a 100-degree day). The host and property manager were both kind and accommodating. They gave us everything we needed and then left us to enjoy their home.

  • Staying @ Glen Muse was really wonderful! The space is beautiful & jeska was really nice & helpful. As there weren't many people there we had the place pretty much to ourselves. It was the perfect honeymoon.
    If planning a trip to Ojai - definitely book a stay here!!

  • The pool house was wonderful and Jessica, the manager, was very friendly and kind. The grounds were gorgeous and the pool/heated patio/etc. were overall a lovely vacation getaway. The only complaint was that there were many people working/wandering around the grounds with many of them coming to me asking whether I could approve repairs, pay for the gardening, etc. Not too bad except when they come knocking on your door in the morning. Still, overall a fantastic stay.

    Response from Darakshan:

    I'm glad you two enjoyed your stay! So sorry about the disturbances! Our large property does require quite a bit of upkeep, which only happens on weekdays. We don't often have guests in the poolhouse during the week, but we've worked out a system that will prevent future disturbances for anyone staying there. Thanks for helping us to improve the experience for everyone! ~Jess

  • Wow! We loved staying at the pool house! It was such a peaceful and beautiful house! Jeska was super friendly and we can't wait to come to back. Thank you for having us!

  • My husband and I truly enjoyed out stay here! Jeska was so friendly and did her best to make us feel welcome and comfortable. My husband and I stayed in the pool house and it was a nice little weekend get away. My husband also loved the pool and spa. :)

Do what you love
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.
