Ojai Studio Rental Photos and Description

Spacious Studio casita, sleeps 2 in king, air mattress for 2 additional guest

Our Casita Ojai is on a 2 acre property shared with my family. It is nestled by neighboring orange and avocado orchards, olive trees and the Los Padres National forest in the beautiful East end of Ojai. With the center of town just minutes away it is an ideal location for travelers seeking a retreat like feel that is just around the corner to many sites of Ojai. We invite you to enjoy our spacious 700 sq ft. Studio suite guesthouse with 1 Bathroom with a shower, a fully equipped kitchen with an adjoining porch. The contemporary furnishings and abundant visual beauty, will immediately transform the wary traveler to a place of serenity. The amenities are vast from the down comforter bedding and spa robes to lounge in front of the fireplace in the winter or on the porch having coffee. Wake up from a restful nights sleep on our comfortable bed to the sounds of natures creatures. As a smoke free and green friendly property, we have also considered all the comforts of home! So pack light. Grill your fresh produce purchase from veggie stands around the corner or at our fabulous farmers market, and squeeze fresh lemon juice from our trees and splash olive oil from growers across the way on top to finish, and you'll be dining a fresco in a matter of minutes.

The spacious casita is an open floor plan with high beam ceilings which gives it an airy and open feel. French doors open to the porch and views of the pool and garden. Tastefully decorated with amenities to ensure for a home away from home feel. Imagine a personal massage on the covered porch, taking a dip in the pool after a day of hiking and biking, allowing yourself an afternoon nap in the hammock, escaping into a novel under an aged oak tree, reliving a childhood memory of roasting marsh mellows around a fire pit, or cuddling with that special someone having wine by star light, all this can be experienced here at casita Ojai. Our property will rejuvenate your mind, body and spirit. So if you are ready to escape and to rediscover the simple pleasures of life........let it be here at casita Ojai an exceptional getaway!

About Maida Interiano

A Berkeley native I moved to Ojai 17 years ago. The community, creative culture and slower paced lifestyle called to me. It has been just the absolute perfect place to raise my children and dogs. When I found this property I immediately fell in love with it.The setting reminded me of my travels through the South of France. It has been a work in progress and a labor of love. My most fondest memories of my travels abroad were meeting the families who owned farmhouses that I had stayed at. This vacation rental has allowed me and my family to connect with well traveled and fascinating people from all over the states and the world. Now we have the opportunity to be the hosts, and we are loving it!!

I have 2 children off to college, and one at home. My youngest is a junior host in training. He gives tours of the hen house and demonstrates the art of egg collection. We share our property with 2 dogs, 6 hens, quail, bunnies, squirrels and a multitudes of birds.

Maida Interiano purchased this studio in 2005

Why Maida Interiano chose Ojai

This property held a strong nostalgic feel to our travels abroad. The absolute visual and spiritual beauty and serenity of the East End was immediately captivating.

What makes this studio unique

There is an abundance of nature. The colors, the sounds, scents and awe inspiring vistas is all around us. Everyday is a spiritual awakening and an oasis. I sit out most days in the mornings with my cup of coffee to capture the activity of the animals when they arise. As the evening approaches the sounds once again changes. Where we live there are no street lights which gives us on clear evenings the most spectacular view of the stars. My most favorite time of the day is in the evening, especially when the cool breeze fills the night air. Dinning outdoors feels like we are on vacation also. We take our dogs on walks along pepper and olive tree lined roads. We also enjoy the hiking trails just up the road. We are fortunate to have neighbors who grow fruits and sell them at fruit stands on location. Freshly picked avocados, oranges, lemons and more.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We want to thank you SO SO much for the wonderful stay at your casita. Your property is gorgeous and perfect, and was exactly what we needed after a long first trimester. Your hospitality made everything so special- your sweet card, snacks, fresh fruit, eggs...and the warmth that you and your husband showed us. We will surely come back and have already recommended that our friends come and stay at your casita soon! Take care, and thanks again for everything!

Delightful getaway in paradise.

  • 5 of 5
I had a wonderful time at Casita Ojai. This vacation was just what the Dr ordered. The landscape backdrop of los padres National forest is stunning. Maida was the ultimate host. She was kind and generous with her advice and time. She gave us bikes to explore the back hills and encouraged us to harvest herbs from her gardens.

My girlfriend and i spent a week basking in the sun, dipping in the pool and visiting local olive farms and sampling their oils. We stayed in and cooked most nights because we were so enamored with the space. We pulled grapefruit from the garden trees to make greyhounds, limes for our gin and tonics, and had fresh eggs in the morning from the chicken coup.

Wonderful last minute getaway

  • 5 of 5
We chose this as a last minute getaway and we are so pleased with the outcome. The casita was perfect for my husband and I and my two girls. From the moment we arrived we felt like we were at a friend's home, the vibe the place exudes is truly homey, magical. Maida and her family were so warm and eager to make your stay comfortable, without being too intrusive. They felt like old friends, that we had known for years. The pool was perfect, we used the grill every night for al fresco dining on the patio and then sat around the firepit making smores. Such a wonderful night. My younger daughter loved going into the chicken house on the property to look for eggs, one day she found 3 eggs and we cooked them up for breakfast the next day, such a fun adventure for my daughter. It was such a wonderful little getaway our only regret is we couldn't stay longer, but we plan to go back again very soon! Especially for the fresh strawberry shortcake at Boccali's a roadside restaurant that Maida suggested! My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

SWEET RESPITE IN OJAI…

  • 5 of 5
We could not have found a more restful and revitalizing place to retreat. Maida and her Casita were welcoming and warm to the MAX! Close to town yet with a feeling of having arrived in Italy…with all of the Olive Trees or Ireland with its dry stonewalls. Such beauty steps away. So many local trails to discover and nearby Meditation Mount provided the perfect place to meditate and practice yoga. After every activity, we returned to our casita knowing that every amenity we could possibly want was provided…warm shower, fully equipped kitchen, hammock, pool, pool towels, chaise lounges and the list goes on…with Maida readily available to assist us with any request. Our five days at Maida’s casita ended all too soon…we will return!

Excellent place! Cozy, private and wonderful property!

  • 4 of 5
We had a great Mother/Daughter weekend. Nice setting, cozy place, loved the pool, chickens, and location overall. Not too far from downtown, but nice and quiet retreat. Property owner gave us suggestions for our visit as well. We were allowed to bring our small dogs and they loved it too. We highly recommend this place. Would recommend for 2 person. The 3rd will use their air mattress, which is so-so comfort wise, plus we set it up ourselves. Otherwise, perfect place!

Relaxing weekend in Ojai!!

  • 5 of 5
My sister and I were looking for a place we could get away to that gave us an opportunity to unplug a bit from the day to day. This casita had it all!! From the relaxing surroundings, hammock on the porch, great space inside to relax and gathering eggs in the hen house. The owners was incredible sweet and gave us some great tips on where to eat and what to do. We were able to get to town quickly yet felt in the country. We hiked and explored and coming back to the casita to watch the sunset while chatting ad sipping wine was a perfect end to out days. This will be my go to place to stay in ojai from now on!!

Casita Ojai Has Its Pluses and Minuses

  • 4 of 5
All in all we had a very pleasant stay at Maida's.
The guest house/casita was clean, comfortable and had all the comforts of home as well as a fully stocked kitchen.
Though there are chickens on the property, I was assured that there was no rooster, so we wouldn't be awakened by the crow of such a bird at sunrise.
What I wasn't told is that the next door neighbor's also have chickens AND a rooster, so we were awakened at sunrise any way.
Also, a neighbor across the street was absent and left a smoke alarm going outside so as to keep people away. So on our first night we heard the incessant beep...beep...beep of said smoke alarm. I tracked it down in the morning and turned it off thus ruining our first night's sleep.
Again, it has its charms, and none of these problems were of the owner's doing, but be aware that when you stay out of town, there is a certain noise factor...some natural, some man made.
