Matilija Cottage was the perfect location for a family get-together of 6 adults and a new baby. Linda was very accommodating, and though we never met her, she was the perfect hostess! And the house was truly wonderful with lots of nice little touches. The bedrooms were extremely comfortable and exactly as pictured...clean, cute and cozy! The living spaces were very comfortable and we felt right at home working on the jigsaw puzzle around the living room coffee table. But, honestly, we spent the majority of our time in the amazing, relaxing backyard that is even nicer than the photos! The lovely sound of the pond, the comfortable porch, blooming tress, and fabulous weather were just what we all needed to destress from our busy city lives. We even barbecued a tri tip from the local Westridge Market and ate outside! We wish we had more time together and to enjoy all that Ojai has to offer, but it was a wonderful weekend that will forever be a favorite family memory.
We were in Ojai for a wedding at the Ojai resort but didn't want to spend a fortune staying at the resort. This location was no more than a 5 minute drive away and worked out perfectly. The rooms are beautifully decorated, comfortable, and spacious. Linda set up the bathrooms thoughtfully, including a hairdryer and some travel toiletries. Though we didn't go to any restaurants or go on any hikes, the guide book she has included lots of useful information about the cottage, the area, things to do, and places to eat. We'll definitely be back if we're in Ojai again!
Absolutely adorable house on a quiet street in downtown, Ojai. Easily walkable to all the cute shops and restaurants. Everything was exactly described, if not cuter! Linda was a dream to work with and most generous. We accidentally locked ourselves out and she resolved the problem in a matter of minutes! Spacious and comfortable, we look forward to returning in the warmer weather so we can take full advantage of the awesome back yard.
Linda was so wonderful in arranging our stay at the cottage. The place is lovely, clean, comes with 2 tvs, linens, and a great kitchen. Everything was very well organized. We bought some steaks and locally sold sea bass and grilled both on the gas grill and sat for hours in the spacious back yard patio. The small lily pond was such a nice touch with its relaxing fountain. Linda even offered the use of the herbs, peaches, and artichokes grown in her yard! We loved borrowing the 4 bikes on site to go to downtown Ojai. Everything needed for a comfortable stay was here, and we felt so at home. This place is very well maintained, and the owner, Linda is so helpful and friendly, that we are definitely looking forward to our next visit.
