Spanish Colonial cottage in the heart of downtown Ojai. Two minute walk to shopping, concerts, spas and the famous Ojai farmers market. Eight minute walk to The Ojai Valley Inn with its world-class spa and golf facilities. In a three block radius you'll find the post office with its iconic clock tower, the county library, groceries, the bike trail that can take you all the way to the Ventura beaches, bike rentals for that trail and Libbey Park with its famous Libbey Bowl, home of outdoor summer concerts and the renown Ojai Music Festival.

As longtime residents of Ojai, we keep our home clean and simply furnished. You'll find all the things you need for everyday life -- a well stocked kitchen, toys for the kids, baby supplies and comfortable beds. Broadband internet, wifi, a Netfix account with unlimited shows and movies and a desktop computer will keep you connected. Three bathrooms guarantee you'll never wait in line. The king size bed made from all natural materials is truly fit for royalty. We love dining on the patio while listening to the Libbey Bowl concerts barely a stone's throw (website hidden) seat in the house.

But don't stay indoors for long. Enjoy strolling the Arcade boutiques, hiking the quiet trails listening to birds under the smell of wild sage, taking a horseback ride or visiting serene spiritual sites like Meditation Mount and Kratona. Enjoy soothing hot tubs, classes in Pilates and yoga and crystal clear swimming pools at the Ojai Athletic Club under the watchful gaze of the Topa Topa bluffs.

Okay, this description sounds a bit over the top. But mark my words, there's a reason why Ojai has the nickname "Shangri-La" and was the chosen site to set the film of the same name. Come and find out for yourself. And welcome to our home.

The Neighborhood

Downtown Ojai is a paradise. Shopping, nightlife, street fairs, art galleries, scrumptious food. And we're right by Libbey Park, home of fabulous outdoor concerts sheltered by oak trees. Some nights you'll hear music and smell orange blossoms. Others you'll hear coyotes and owls.

Getting around

You can walk to nearly everything in town. For larger excursions, ride the Ojai trolley. Plenty of room for a couple cars, too.

Hi! I live mostly in Seattle with my wife Susan and two adorable kids. We like traveling, hiking in the mountains around Seattle, going to outdoor concerts and most of all food. Known for facing driving rain, horrendous traffic and the real possibility that the restaurant will be boarded up and abandoned on arrival just to savor the best Ethiopian food within 15 miles, we are mocked by many and appreciated by few. I learned to speak Spanish to order food (y lo hablo bastante bien), learned to cook to eat it, and learned to speak and write so I could talk about it. Have you eaten somewhere I haven't? We must right this wrong. Ping me and tell me where and when. I'll meet you there.
