The outdoor dining experience is supreme. The Zen feeling starts at the first moment you gaze at the extraordinary sultry jungle, some will be completely awe-struck by the garden’s imagination. The rain forest-like paradise features over 500 palm trees, colorful tropical flowers, secret winding enchanting paths, magical ingenuous touches only the minds eye can try & explain. Set deep inside the palms you will find 2 steaming, river-rock Jacuzzis Spas. Another path will take you to a secluded Organic garden of fresh delights to pick for your nightly feast. There are places if needing privacy, and there are a million places to hang out and socialize. The pool is sheltered with trees and plants, and still there is plenty of sun. When you're there, you feel like you've transported your guests to a secret island. 2 huge BBQ pits, & huge grass area for kids play. Everyone can chip in and help with something you will have people swimming, grilling, hammocking, bartending, sleeping, frisbeeing, and, so much more.

Rolling Thunder was perfect for our big group of friends over New Year's. Lisa and Dillon were very communicative and flexible in terms of arrival/departure. The place was super cozy with fire places everywhere. We cooked a feast in the well equipped kitchens and ate by the ou…

We had a poor visit here with rats in the kitchen at nighttime, up on the worktop surfaces, and in the common areas. Many rats living on the outside roof of the house also.

Response from Lisa:
We have been joyfully renting out Rolling Thunder Ranch since 2006 and only received glowing 5-star reviews on all sites. We are super bummed to get this 1st bad review (Website hidden by Airbnb) we work so hard to bring delight and a beautiful environment to all of our 15 locations in Ojai. We have been doing this for a long time. We host 16 lucky guests at this tropical 4-acre ranch. We kindly ask that the guest keep the doors closed at all times due to being in the Ojai county setting. This guest was here for 6 days and had small children. We suspect that they left the doors open as it's easy to do. The big tropical oasis it right off the big arch front door and people tend to forget they are in the country and are transported to a Hawaiian island that feels free to leave all the doors and windows open. All houses have rules so to insure the best possible outcome for our treasured guest. We also never heard from our guest until the last day that there was any issue. We ask that you disregard these claims of rats as this is not the case as stated here. We also do professionally treat our ranch monthly (Pet Friendly Products) outside the house to be proactive of country critters. We did catch 2 mice in the house after they departed. We also are going to make a big sign on the door. To gently remind people of the importance of closing the doors in (Website hidden by Airbnb) verbal communication sometimes gets forgotten in the midst of ones fun. PS: We host 2 white barn owls that live on the roof its super cool and 2 in a secret palm tree if you're coming to ROLLING THUNDER RANCH ask us we will show you them. #bekind #houserules #lovewhatwedo
