EAST END PARADISE AT CASITA ENCANTO!

Ojai Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Spacious Studio casita, King , 1 Bath, sleeps 2 additional in air mattress

Our Casita is on a 2 acre property nestled by neighboring orange 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 located close to Thacher school, and Meditation Mount. Ideal location for travelers seeking a provincial like feel to get away from the stress of everyday and yet it is just around the corner to many sites of Ojai.

Lrg Studio 1bath, fully equipped kitchen. The studio is well appointed and abundant with natural visual beauty. Be prepared to be transformed to a place of serenity. The amenities include luxury bedding and linens and plush spa robes to lounge in while enjoying a cup of morning coffee. As a smoke free and green friendly property, we have also considered all the comforts of home! So pack light. Prepare your meals on the outdoor grill, or well stocked kitchen, after a shopping trip up the road from local growers of fruits, veggies and Olive oil. Toss in some herbs from our garden to complete the meal. The dining patio awaits you!

This charming Provence inspired property adorns a view of the mountains, gardens, Olive trees, fragrances of lavender, rosemary and orange blossoms when in season and welcoming sounds of flowing fountains. Step out into a serene and private patio set up for time of relaxation, bird gazing and a space to enjoy lounging with a good book. Meandering rock path will lead you to our pool area. The bright stars transforms the patio into a romantic dining area for two or a lively and festive evening with friends and family. Wake up to the sounds of the fountain and calming vistas to refresh the soul.

Whether lounging by the pool after a day of hiking and biking, taking in a nap in the hammock, reading under an Olive tree, or roasting marsh mellows with love ones around a fire pit, 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 with us a serene Ojai getaway!

We look forward to hosting your visit to Ojai. Please look up our other vrbo 300370 Casita Ojai/ Casita Thacher rental since 2009. Check out our reviews, and on Trip Advisor

Guestbook comments from the owner
My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the casita. It was very peaceful and low key. Exactly what we were looking for. I invited several friends over for an evening and the first thing they said upon entering the cottage was," Oh how cute!!!" They all said they wanted to live in the cottage. :) The patio and the fire pit was enjoyable as well as the chickens who came over to say "hello".... And the bed was sooooo comfortable! Maida was welcoming and a gracious host...... Ojai is a magical town. We will be back!!

My family and I relocated to So Ca. from Berkeley in search of a new adventure and a place to temporarily hang our hat. Our stint in Ojai was to be a 4 year commitment. We are going on 17 years now. It has been just the absolute perfect place to raise our children and dogs here. When we found this property we immediately fell in love with it.The setting reminded us of our travels through the South of France. It has been a work in progress and a labor of love. Our most fondest memories of our travels abroad were meeting the families who owned farmhouses that we had stayed at. This vacation rental has allowed us to connect with incredibly fascinating people from all over the states and the world. Now we have the opportunity to be the hosts, and we are loving it!!

Our eldest child is off to college, one preparing to head off to college in a couple of years and one in elementary school. Our youngest is our 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, 12 hens, resident bat, quail, bunnies, squirrels and a multitudes of birds. We have hosted visitors from our other vacation rental vrbo 300370 since 2009 and has been the most rewarding experience for me and my family!

Maida Interiano purchased this cottage in 2005

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.

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.

We stayed in this , clean, and tranquil casita for our two year anniversary. We also brought our three Puggles, and the homeowner was very accommodating. We will make this our regular get away spot from LA.
Highly recommend this place!

PEACEFUL RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely stay! The owner, Maita, is so lovely and welcoming. You feel as if you are staying at a friends cottage. The property is clean and comfortable. Our baby girl loved the chickens on the property. And we loved the outside fire pit and comfy chairs while she slept. It was only a short drive to town and meditation mount, which Maita guided us to visit along with fabulous local restaurants and activities. We would definitely stay here again.

WELL APPOINTED AND PEACEFUL

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at "home-aways" all across the U.S. but never one so well appointed! The owner has thought of everything from bath towels, robes, extra pillows to a juicer and iron skillet- we had everything we needed! The house is comfortable and clean and the property is beautiful. We were truly able to unplug and relax!

CHARMING CASITA, GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We found this charming casita to be everything the photos promised. This studio is spacious and very comfortable, well maintained and clean. The full kitchen, which is fully equiped, was a real plus, as was the music of the fountain outside the window and the song of the birds who enjoyed both it and the garden by the front door. Morning coffee under the olive tree in this lovely setting was heavenly. The property is close to downtown Ojai, but far enough out of town to be peaceful. Our host was a real joy and could not have been kinder. She respected our privacy but was available whenever we needed her. The second casita is on the other side of her house, private from this one. Bikers and hikers would find this rental ideal, as would anyone. We would plan another trip to Ojai on the condition that we could stay in this lovely casita again and we happily recommend this lovely site to everyone.

A LOVELY HOLIDAY RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the casita over Christmas and had an amazing, relaxing visit. On Christmas Day, we spent explored the valley and then came back to relax by the fire in the fire pit at twilight before making our Christmas dinner (it's not entirely clear from the listing, but there is indeed a full kitchen with a stove and oven, in addition to the microwave). It's very dark at night, perfect for star-gazing. We were concerned that there wasn't a separate bedroom, but the casita is so spacious that it wasn't a problem. The evenings were chilly, but lots of heaters are provided and kept the space warm and cozy. And the bed really is extremely comfy! We can't wait to visit again -- thank you so much Maida (and Giani)!

Owner's Response: The spaciousness of the casita is hard to capture on web pictures so thank you for mentioning that. The large windows and high beamed ceilings definitely help. I also have had guest ask where the bed is from because they want to buy one just like it, best sleep ever I've been told..... So happy to hear the full kitchen was used during the holidays, nothing like the smell of home cooking to add to the cozy ambiance of casita! There's almost not a bad view to star gaze on our property since there are no street lights. By firelight even more magical!
