I fell in love with this little town of Ojai 12 years ago when I needed to get out of the city. I had lived in Los Angels for 15 years and had a 9 year-old daughter that I felt needed to finish growing up in a small town. I had grown up in small towns in Texas and knew the benefits.

Carla Melson purchased this farmhouse in 2006

I have been in the landscaping business for 35 years and found this piece of property that had views to die for. It was absolutely the perfect canvas to build my dream home and never run out of space to create rooms of gardens.

Offering breathtaking views that afford the luxury and serenity of a Tuscan holiday. Steps from hiking trails and horseback riding. Beautiful citrus and fruit tree orchards.

So private that you feel in complete seclusion from the outside world.

You will not be disappointed!!!

  • 5 of 5
I looked at a ton of places on this site in search of the perfect getaway for my best friend's bachlorette. The pictures do not even do this place justice. Mornings were spent picking oranges and making freshly squeezed juice. There is an herbal garden filled with peppermint, etc. to add to delicious afternoon cocktails and all of our meals. We even got our eggs from the chickens on the property! We seamlessly cooked, made smores on the outdoor fireplace, and relaxed in the enormous jacuzzi under the stars at night. And the beds, even though small, were so cozy! The detail in design and comfort is better than any 5 star hotel I've stayed in. No one ever wanted to leave the property and we never even felt a need to! It really is a little slice of paradise.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
We had very high expectations for this property. The photographs are beautiful and the property looked simply amazing on HomeAway.

Although we prepared for the "inevitable" slight let-down when we arrived it didn't happen! The house is a meticulously designed modern farmhouse with every inch planned to live larger than the house's square footage.

The outdoor living is perfect and the grounds are extensive and wonderful. We rode horses just down the street, picked oranges and tangerines off the trees and ate eggs fresh from the "family" chickens.

There are foxes and coyotes nearby and the nearby mountains provide a stunning backdrop as you sit in the huge hot tub and listen to the night animals.

We walked to a great local bar with live music and barbecue, went on long hikes on both ends of town and took advantage of the well appointed kitchen to make delicious meals with the abundant local produce.

The owner and her sister are very warm and helpful and the house is immaculately maintained.

Stay here if you can. You won't regret it.

Amazing family reunion

  • 5 of 5
My family gathered at this amazing place for my sons wedding and family reunion. We simply could not have found a more serene, gorgeous and welcoming place. Nobody wanted to leave by the end of the week. This exquisitely designed house-- the quality of the homes, the details are all truly beyond what we could have expected-- and the garden and orchard are stunning, which is not surprising given the owner is a landscape architect. But most importantly, the home fostered a fabulous environment for all of us-- coming from 4 different continents-- to connect, relax, enjoy and celebrate. We spent evenings eating and drinking wine al frecsa, mornings running and hiking in the hills within walking distance from the house and afternoons reading in hammocks, lounging in the salt water hot tub or As we say in Danish-- this place is as "hyggeligt" as you can get while still luxurious and the perfect place to vacation and treat your family to a special experience.

Incredible Experience

  • 5 of 5
I have stayed in many Ojai homes over the years as a frequent visitor to the "Valley of the Moon." The owner selected details in every inch of the house that are exquisite and indicative of the feeling of Ojai. Really, this is a dream vacation rental. The surrounding grounds are incredibly manicured with citrus orchards and stunning views. This is a gem.

Just Lovely!

  • 5 of 5
The property and the home itself are very unique and a one of a kind experience. It felt like a farmhouse retreat with all the luxuries. During our stay, we enjoyed all the different locales of the property, from the outdoor patio with the fire pit, to the sitting area amidst the orange and pomegranate groves, exploring the chicken coop, to the spa under the arbor. Each corner of the property has something different to offer. Everything about the property was immaculately kept, clean, and pristine. Also all of the features are very thoughtful. I would recommend this property for those who can take the time to soak in all of the details, this isn't just a place to sleep, but a space to truly appreciate and respect.

Perfect Weekend! Very Difficult to Leave!

  • 5 of 5
We are already planning our next trip. Carla was extremely helpful and the house she has built is a dream come true. We wanted to explore Ojai but couldn't bear to leave the tranquility of the house. Cooking is a joy in the kitchen and picking oranges for fresh-squeezed juice every morning was fantastic. The house was immaculate had every imaginable amenity. We had a nice walk to The Farmer and the Cook. We loved watching the little bunnies run around the grounds. We ate dinner outside by the fire every night. It was even ore beautiful than the pictures. Will be returning every year!

A place to unplug and connect with real life!

Nestled in a scenic valley surrounded by orange groves and natural beauty, Ojai is easy to explore -- by foot, bike, trolley or even horseback -- while taking in the sights along the way.

Explore miles of scenic trails. Visit local farms to pick produce or see how olive oil is made. Or stay close to town … and enjoy shopping, dining and an array of cultural offerings.

Be inspired by art, go wine tasting, indulge in a spa treatment, or play a round of golf. The choice is yours.

Fabulous weather makes our town a popular year-round destination for golf and tennis. The courses are challenging and incredibly beautiful. And for tennis – well, let's just say we were named the second best tennis town in the U.S.

The magnificent climate and natural beauty have fostered Ojai's reputation as a place to restore and rejuvenate health. That heritage thrives today at our world-renowned spas and resorts.

Ojai is a small town brimming with possibilities!
