Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Marcus & Eva,

this is Benny, the mushroom haired kid, but I am speaking for everyone in my

family and I think that it is safe to say that we hada VERY good time at the

'Secret Garden'. The environment here is, as my dad said once, "very creative

and unique" (in a really good way). The hanging bed was of utmost comfort,

the jacuzzi and pool were REALLY FUN, the scenery was magnificent (you can

ask my camera), and the dry-riverbed-hiking-trail was completely AMAZING!

My only regret is that we couldn't stay any longer....because if we could than

my life would be heaven-like. Wow, I think that nothing was forgotten in

making this stay perfect/"supa-cool"(says my sister). My family and i had a,

to put it in terms we can all agree on, superfabulousamazing-

amazingawesomely cool time! Sincerely yours, Benny

P.S. I like all the Hindu/Buddhist sculptures etc.

Magical and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5
I loved my week long stay at The Secret Garden Suite.

The Suite itself is whimsical yet extremely comfortable. The 5-acre property, Casa de Paz, is unique and gorgeous. The owners, Eva and Marcus are amazing people and hosts.

I initially reserved The Secret Garden Suite for it’s location-almost on the border of Thacher-my daughter’s school. The experience turned out to be so much more than just convenient and practical. It was magical and probably life changing.

I certainly plan to return.

Incredibly Beautiful & Peaceful Oasis

Incredibly Beautiful & Peaceful Oasis
  • 5 of 5
What a gorgeous retreat this became for me. This property is situated at the base of massive mountains that have absolutely breathtaking views when hiked. After a long day exploring the nearby hikes or walking around the massive bright blue lake, it was absolute heaven to come back to this Ojai Ranch. Whether it was relaxing in one of 3 jacuzzis or enjoying a delicious meal of local produce at one of the many beautiful outdoor structures, we felt totally pampered and like royalty. Every detail from the interior design of the magical bungalow to the flowers growing along the stone path has love and intention. We got to know Marcus and Eva and their beautiful daughter Shanti, and they have such vitality and love. It was a pleasure sharing meals and getting to know them. What beautiful people inside and out, their bright shining light is truly a testament to their sacred land! It is inspiring and full of life here. A perfect place for a getaway. Thank you Eva, Marcus, Shanti, and Yogi the Doggy! :)

Magical

  • 5 of 5
We took three kids and a baby to this magical house. The kids went wild in the nature and they loved circular bed!
The house is in a magical garden where the kids could explore, they fed the horses and got lost.
The studio does have a very unusual & wonderful second bedroom, which Eva actually let us have at no extra cost, which is very kind.
Eva, Marc & Shanti were exceptional hosts, they were relaxed, thoughtful, generous and respectful.
This place is so peaceful and pretty and very eccentric! there is an additional outdoor shower which feels great after a hike, and an additonal outside toilet in a beautiful hut. I loved the reading material in there!
The house is a 5 minute drive into town and two minutes to the hectic, fantastic Bucalli's restaurant an Ojai staple. There are many hikes in the area including a wonderful mountain hike behind the Casa which looks out across all of Ojai Valley.
If you really want the Ojai experience then this is the place for you
We will defintly be going back as soon as we can.
This would also be perfect for a romantic get away, especially as the house has it's own private hot tub!
Please note. The pool is a 'spa' pool and not as big as we had expected. The kids loved it and it was the perfect size for them but not really for a bunch of grownups.

A Magical Retreat!

  • 5 of 5
Casa de Paz is the treat of a lifetime! My partner and I went for a few days and stayed three weeks! It's like a hidden jewel in a mystical land. We felt like explorers finding a beautiful surprise around every corner. And, the Secret Garden Suite is VERY sexy! There's the king size floating bed and an exquisite soft white fur rug waiting for you after a hot soak under the stars. Eva and Marc are two of the most caring, giving and FUN people that we've ever met. Shanti is their beautiful daughter who calls the horses "my brother and sister." I smile every time I think of them. Everything was perfect and we want to celebrate many anniversaries in this beautiful place. Thank you Eva & Marc. You're amazing.

Didn't Meet Our Expectations At All - We Left Early!

Didn't Meet Our Expectations At All - We Left Early!
  • 1 of 5
Our family of 4 rented this for my 40th birthday weekend. It didn't meet our expectations AT ALL and we left after the 1st night! While the suite is separate from the owner’s home, you don’t feel like you’re private. Their car is parked outside the suite, you walk past their house to get to the pool, and they also use the pool and outdoor shower. While there are 2 jacuzzis, you can only use 1, NOT the one under the stars in the picture because that is their private one. Also note that the suite’s jacuzzi is above-ground and takes all night to heat up. It has a cover, and you are asked to put it back on when you're done (what a pain!). The pool is NOT in-ground even though it looks so on VRBO.com. It's a freezing cold above-ground “pool” with a makeshift platform around it. It is not very big (kind of like a cold, glorified jacuzzi), and it also has a cover that you’re supposed to put on when not swimming (pain!). The kitchen is NOT what I'd call a "complete kitchen." There is a mini-bar fridge and dorm room sized microwave in the 1st sleeping area, and there’s a sink and 2-burner electric hot plate in the kitchen. There is no oven or stove. The swinging bed is large enough for 2 adults, but it was very uncomfortable; we kept rolling into the center of it, and my husband’s back hurt for a week afterwards. There are two sleeping areas, but you have to pay extra for the 2nd one, and it does not have a bathroom. It is in the same building, but you walk outside a few steps and through a locking door to get there. We had our kids in there, and we didn’t feel safe having them separated from us like that. The 2nd area is small and had a VERY noticeable moldy/mildewed smell. My daughter, sensitive to dust and mold, couldn’t breathe well in the morning. It took 2 days of nebulized albuterol to get her back to normal once home. Also, in the 2nd area, there are electrical wires running underneath a rug under the bed which didn’t seem safe to us. The whole “suite” seemed more like a renovated garage, and I wonder if it even meets fire and safety codes for residential living. The suite was dirty, with cobwebs everywhere and a giant spider in the bed! There’s no potable water to drink; the sink water was NASTY! None of us could imagine spending any more time there, so we left early the next morning though we knew we wouldn’t get our money back. The owners *were* nice, and "to each his own," but this place just wasn't as nice as what we were expecting.

MAGICAL LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
I love this place so much and the owners Marcus & Eva are two of the kindest people we ever met; the suite is beautiful and well appointed and that round floating bed, it just pure heaven! We stayed there the weekend of 09/23 to 09/25/11 and everthing was just perfect. The location is just magical and their gardens with a gorgeous hot and cold outdoor shower you have to experience it to believe it; we didn't use the jacuzzi just outside the suite because it wasn't working properly but it didn't affect the beauty of our getaway; on Saturday night the most beautiful rain sounds while getting a massage by Eva (2 hours massage and indulgence I know) but worth it. We are looking forward to return and continue to enjoy this beautiful piece of paradise in this magical property. Thank you so much for your kindness and hope to visit very soon.
