Julia and Kate were so welcoming and friendly. We had the most relaxing visit. I sought out a restful vacation and went home completely refreshed. Their home is peaceful and quiet, surrounded by trees and great scenery. I felt completely comfortable there, as if I was staying with family.
The most wonderful weekend away from LA. Much needed space and distance from the busy city craziness of LA. I only met Julia as I was in and out of the house alot but so welcoming and gracious and they will either leave you be or be ready and willing for great mind capivating conversation. Next time I am in Ojai I am staying here. Much love!
My boyfriend and I spent 2 nights with Julia and Kate over the 4th of July weekend. The house is located on a windy road however was easy to locate and in close proximity to Ojai, Ventura and Santa Barbara. The house is well decorated yet comfortable. The room was the perfect size for 2 adults, clean, light, airy and has a comfortable queen size bed. As for the hosts, upon arrival they were warm and welcoming. We had plenty of privacy as the rooms are on the other side of the home. We spent a couple of hours enjoying really good conversation with Julie over coffee before we left and she is so cool. I would definitely stay with Julia & Kate again and recommend their home to anyone looking to visit this area.
We had a great time. We had never reserved a place that reserved just the room. It was great. We had a fabulous conversation with Julia. Both of them were very evasive and respected our privacy. Both Julia and Kate are great people.
My stay at Julia and Kate's home was great: the hosts were very welcoming, their home was clean and perfectly located to explore Ojai, go hiking in the mountains, or head to the beach. I also had the awesome opportunity to learn how to surf from their friend, Frank, who couldn't have made it easier or more fun.
This is a great place to get away and see some beautiful parts of California.
We had a very nice and relaxing time at their lovely home. Julia and Kate are so thoughtful and friendly. It felt like we were visiting friends. We would definitely stay here again.
We had a wonderful stay at Julia & Kate's home. The bed is extremely comfy and Julia is a wonderful hostess. And her juices are AMAZING!
