The place was great! My husband, my teenage son & myself love the outdoors & we were in a valley next to great hiking trails, beautiful aromas, many humming birds & wonderful fruit trees & plants (we would step out in the front yard for oranges & the back yard for lemons). The house was a refreshing change from hotel rooms & appartmens. All up to date appliances, comfortable beds, & very tastefully decorated.
We were nervous not knowing anyone (including the owners) but Richard & Carol were quick to answer any of our questions.The owner's always asked if we needed anything to make our stay more delightful & were quick to respond to our phone calls, not to mention let us know about the available ammenities in the area (we were there for 2 mo.'s).
The town of Ojai had the small town feel with festivals of some sort almost every night. Ojai is a quick drive to the mountains, the beach, & the city of L.A. & it has a low crime rate (which was very important to us). One of the things that caught our attention was the diverse climates (drive approx 15-20 min to the coast with a 10 degree temp drop).
Richard & Carol (the rentors) helped us to have prob the best vacation time we've ever had. I know I am leaving out so much, but highly recommend staying here.
