There are good hosts, great hosts and then there are the ones like Julia and Kate, the perfect hosts. They made me feel welcome and comfortable from the very first moment I stepped in to their home. Not only are they perfect hosts because of their hospitality and generosity, but also because they are so easy to have to do with and is incredibly helpful. The room was big, light and clean, with a great bed which I slept perfectly in. The people who book this place will be very lucky, just like I was.
I enjoyed staying with these two! I was out most of the time, but the time I did get to be around them was great. They made me feel right at home and were very considerate of my needs. Everything was very clean. They even got up early in the morning to make me some delicious cold-pressed juice before I headed out! I would definitely stay with them again!
After reading rave reviews about Julia and Kate's hospitality, I arrived with high expectations, and was not disappointed. From the first moment, I was welcomed as a member of the family. The loving care of this couple could not possibly be exceeded -- after five nights, I felt like I was leaving home. The room was spacious, clean, and comfortable; the food extraordinary; surrounded by forest, peacefulness was everywhere. Julia and Kate are intelligent, interesting, and give freely of themselves. I was drawn to conversation like a moth to a flame, and left filled with love and admiration. I am already scheming to come back when I can!
Kate and Julia were both very welcoming but also respectful of privacy. Staying with them will let you have as much rest and quietude as you'd desire, as well as the warmth and local knowledge you'd hope to have. Their home is off Hwy 33 on a beautiful, winding road just outside of Ojai. Kate made us a wonderful breakfast on our 2nd and final morning with them and we left feeling very nourished.
Thanks again to you both for your hospitality!
Kate and Julia were in sync with my 4 day of intense yoga studies in Ojai. Traveling 9 hours in a car they greeted me @ the drive with a smile and an eagerness to welcome me to their home. The bedroom/bath are WHITE/pristine/clean and quiet, as the space is on the first floor their room upstairs.
I felt totally safe and would have reveled in Kate's culinary skills; however, my yoga studies took me away early in the am, returning me late in the evening.
This was my second Airbnb in a month and there is no comparison to the first experience-- this is upscale, cozy, healing, and love filled.
When I return and I will I"d connect with them immediately, I left 2 special friends!
Kate & Jules were lovely hosts! We couldn't have chosen a better place to stay for our first airbnb experience. They were friendly and helpful about the area. They gave us a book full of awesome Ojai hikes that really came in handy. Their house was spacious, quiet, clean and comfortable. We loved spending time with them (and their dogs!) when we weren't out and about. Kate made us a delicious breakfast and she catered to my dietary needs as I'm a vegetarian. If we ever find ourselves in Ojai again, we will definitely be back here.
I had a wonderful experience with Julia & Kate and recommend them highly.
After a hectic traveling day I was greeted by their warm, friendly and empathetic welcome--help with luggage, a bottle of wine, warmed-up dinner. We had great conversations which I very much enjoyed being a solo traveler. Their house was comfortable and inviting--the decor like a wellness retreat center, my room has big with cotton bedding and a comfortable bed, there were nice little touches throughout which showed care and attention. Having my room downstairs and theirs upstairs afforded a greater sense of privacy. The bathroom was sparkly clean and just steps away from my bedroom.
The location worked well for me as I was visiting Ojai, Ventura and Santa Barbara.
It was a great first-time experience using airbnb.
I couldn't have asked for better hosts than Julia and Kate! I was worn down and stressed when I got there and they went above and beyond in their welcome and caring. Very helpful and fun. And very respectful. The room and private bath were calming, comfy bed, clean and just right! They were also helpful with suggestions and directions that increased my enjoyment of this beautiful area. Both are great women and excellent hosts. I highly recommend Julia & Kate's place. Very much appreciated!
Julia & Kate have a beautiful home -- on a quiet, windy road about 10 min from the beach, with a living room that looks like the lobby of a super-posh holistic wellness center. Everything was neat, tidy, and comfortable.
Julia & Kate were the perfect hosts. Both Julia & Kate are incredibly interesting, warm people and were a pleasure to meet! (Oh. And Kate's an incredible cook!)
Julia and Kate were so great. The room and bathroom were really clean and Julia left out clean towels and some water for me when I got there. They were really friendly and accommodating hosts, letting me use the kitchen whenever I needed to. They also gave me directions and good tips about where to go in the area. It was an easy drive to Ojai and into Ventura from their place. I would definitely stay here again.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
