About Bob Kemper

The owner is a local businessman, actively involved in myriad civic activities. Originally from Southern CA, Bob has been in Ojai for 15 years and also owns a home in Aspen, Colorado where he now spends much of his time.

Bob Kemper purchased this estate in 2003

Why Bob Kemper chose Ojai

The home and property was immediately perfect for my goal of creating a custom, craftsman estate. In 2003, I began the 8 year process of a complete (down to the studs) remodel with all new electrical, plumbing, doors, windows, floors and everything else you could dream up. The entire yard was dozed and recreated from scratch to establish a 'resort-like' atmosphere. It worked!

What makes this estate unique

Proximity to Ojai, privacy, serenity, the grounds and the warm, cozy feeling, couched in decadent luxury.

Just Right in Ojai

  • 5 of 5
Our family enjoyed the lovely Ojai Valley and Village while using this spacious home and beautiful surrounds as our headquarters. The house (with its' great master suite and very spacious family/entertainment areas) and grounds are everything our gracious host described and afforded us a great space to enjoy each other and the beautiful Ojai weather. Our little ones are good swimmers and it made the pool area a perfect spot for all to have fun and hang out. It is so well appointed that we felt it was a breeze, and a pleasure, to prepare gourmet meals for our group. At any given time we had 2 or 3 competing cooks (who all think they are chef like, of course) in the spacious kitchen and never felt cramped while we turned out dishes in this fun pro kitchen environment. The gardens and pool area were so easy and beautiful to be in we had to WORK hard at getting the energy up to leave and go visit other sights. Our host's attention to detail made it very comfortable to be on vacation with our 3 families. The area is great too. Many hiking trails are nearby into the hills but if you like to walk (or bike, run), you can go down to the village in a bit over a mile, through lovely winding, shaded streets, catch a biking trail to stretch it out or stop for lunch, or a little film and fine wine and head back up the hill, without having to find a trail. It's amazingly close to Montecito and Santa Barbara, for a nice lunch or shopping day. Day trips to the Channel Islands and the beach are a must...if you can tear yourself away from this little spot of heaven. Great attention to detail! (For perspective, I should also mention that I am an ex very successful BnB owner, am not only a VRBO frequent guest, but rent out 3 successful vacation properties on VRBO.)

BEYOND Expectations!

  • 5 of 5
This house was a FIND! I didn't expect the house to be quite as wonderful as it was in the pictures, but to my amazement, it was BETTER! Even the flowers in the yard were in full bloom. The house was clean, well equipped and the owner left fresh flowers in several rooms for us! When we had a couple of questions about the internet and spa, we were able to text the owner and he got back to us immediately with assistance. We will definitely rent this house again!

A wonderful, comfortable, serene home in gorgeous surroundings!

  • 5 of 5
We had a WONDERFUL stay in this home! We have 4 kids, so we needed a place with some room, and this home was not only very spacious, but set up in such a way that it really fostered great times together as a family! The kitchen is fantastic, the living areas are comfortable and cozy, and the outdoors was amazing! Great pool/spa area, facing the gorgeous mountains of Ojai. We were able to bring our dog, too, and there was ample space for her to run around in the completely fenced property. We had fresh squeezed orange juice almost daily from the many orange trees on the property; what a treat! The owner is very friendly and helpful, and the property manager, John, was amazing, and ready to help with any questions or needs! Thank you, Bob, and thank you, John! We are so grateful for an awesome stay!

Owner's Response: I was fortunate enough to have the property available to host this local Ojai family for almost a month while their home was undergoing some repairs. They were wonderful guests who took great care of the property.

Wonderful Property! Awesome Owner!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this property for 3 nights and it was really something special. We brought our family who was in town from Minnesota for a family vacation. The photos on the listing depict the house very accurately, it is gorgeous! The floorplan is very nicely spread out so no one was in each other's hair but the living areas are great for family gathering. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils and its a cook's dream. The owner was great to work with, very prompt with response and helpful. There were also a lot of really great touches that made this a great stay. From the hotel style toiletries in the showers, to the fresh flowers all over the house and the firewood put out at the fireplace (although we never got a chance to take advantage of the firplace, it was a nice touch). The lighting throughout the house is great, and the sound system in the living area is great for hooking up an ipod to listen to while you cook and eat dinner. All in all, it was a great family vacation, largely in part because we had such a great experience with this rental. Many thanks!

Notes:
Ojai is a destination resort town within 20 minutes of Ventura/Santa Barbara area beaches and surrounded by National Forest. It is known for its 'chain-free,' local merchants, artisans, culture, and wealth of outdoor recreational activities (hiking, biking, golfing, fishing). It has been nicknamed 'Shangri-La' and many know the Ojai Valley as a spiritual retreat with a deep-rooted Krishnamurti tradition. The summers are warm and clear, perfect for lazy days by the pool or any recreational activity. The winters are mild, making Ojai the perfect year-round getaway experience.
