Three more bedrooms, one with a queen bed, one with a queen and a full size bed, and one with one full size bed. Office on the first floor with Queen size Murphy bed. Large walk in cedar lined closets in all of the rooms. Pillowtop or tempur pedic mattresses, most beds have 1200 thread count sheets.

We have a chef's dream of a kitchen, with a La Cornu double oven with 5 burners, lots of counter space and every kitchen gadget you can imagine and a beautiful butler's pantry with vintage servingware for formal dinners in the gorgeous dining room with handpainted ceilings. Formal dining room seats 12 people.

Connected to the kitchen is the cozy den with soft leather furniture and Cable TV with DVD player and a great DVD library.

Large tiled and flagstone patio with enough space to seat 150 includes an outdoor fireplace. Large stainless grill and enough tables and chairs on site to seat 20. One acre of beautiful landscaped grounds including a six-person hot tub surrounded by bamboo. Large barn converted to a Saloon/game room with darts, pool table and bar. Just added a bunkhouse in the Saloon with antique full size bed and a sofa bed. Half bathroom with sauna and views of the horses and alpacas. Large orange and avocado orchard and horse corral with two gorgeous, friendly horses, two mini alpacas and a dozen egg laying hens!

It's great fun to collect your own eggs for breakfast. We have 2 juicers for making your own fresh orange, tangerine or grapefruit juice. Plus a double waffle maker, crepe maker and bread maker to complete the best breakfasts during your stay. Or you can hire our in house chef to make you breakfast!

Natural rock dipping pool with waterfall. Your own private Ojai swimming hole! It is set in the middle of an orange orchard where you can eat oranges from the trees while you float around the pool. BBQ and multiple seating areas for outdoor dining by the pool. There is also a firepit for making smores after a day in the sun.

About Kristina Knapic

Ask me about wonderful places to explore; hikes, swimming holes, hot springs. I can also arrange for horseback riding or in-house massage. Plus I can set you up with wine or olive oil tasting!

Kristina Knapic purchased this estate in 2004

Why Kristina Knapic chose Ojai

I always loved taking day trips to Ojai to enjoy the peace and serenity of the country. I loved going on horseback rides and hiking along the river discovering swimming holes. When I saw this house online I had to see it and when I walked in the entryway I was sold. The Mansion is a stunning piece of history and a gorgeous property.

What makes this estate unique

The Mansion may look formal with its handpainted ceilings and antique furniture but it is also very comfortable and warm. The grounds are a wonderful place to explore, pick fruits from the trees and find eggs hidden by our resident hens. The game room with its pool table and dart board is a fun place to hang out and visit with the horses who love to poke their heads through the windows!

It is paradise!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"The Best Thanksgiving Ever"

It was the first Thanksgiving with all our family ( both my side and my wife's ) together. Naturally there was a lot of worry for us but once we arrived at Kristina's that all melted away. Our clan covered the gamut from toddlers to teens to seniors. Everyone had a fantastic time. Many many thanks.

Girls weekend

  • 5 of 5
Just came back from the girls getaway weekend in Ojai. It was twelve of us and we celebrated my friends 40th Birthday. We stayed in Accacia Mansion and we all absolutely loved it. The house is awesome!!! We enjoyed relaxing at the dipping pool and had a great birthday party in the saloon. So much fun!!!

Our fabulous Acacia Mansion wedding.

  • 5 of 5
My family and I recently rented the acacia mansion for my wedding.
We rented it for a week, and both the brides and grooms families stayed there. We arrived on a Saturday. The wedding was on the following Thursday.
Upon arrival Kristina (the owner) gave us a tour and told us to feel free to use anything we found. She was very nice and hospitable!
Had I seen this place prior i wouldn't have purchase even half of what I did for the wedding. It is fully stocked loaded and ready to go.
We all enjoyed the gorgeous property, and amenities that came with. Our week went faster than we wanted for sure. So many fun things to do on the property and around ojai. The website's pictures do not do it justice. It is truly unbelievable.
The best part was bittersweet. My dj got the date wrong and didn't show. Luckily Kristina was there to save the day. She heard the problem and said she would use the awesome sound system she had and dj for us. My fiancé gave her the list of music and the wedding resumed only 30 min late. She was right on all night!
I wouldnt have changed a moment of our week, and would recommend the acacia mansion to anyone.
Thanks again Kristina!!!!

AMAZING STAY!

  • 5 of 5
Couldn't have been happier with my stay there. It was blast and an incredible value. The saloon was one of the coolest amenities I've ever experienced in a rental, and the hand-made dipping pool in the back was delightful. Hosted a weekend-long party and the folks in charge were incredibly helpful, patient and flexible. Easy-going people, which makes all the difference for things like this. Not one single issue to speak of. It was a dream.
