Guestbook comments from the manager

Dr. Sojka: I am so sorry that I haven’t had the chance to send you a note yet about our wonderful weekend at your lovely Ojai home. First thing on Monday morning, I received a brand new computer at my office – with Windows 7 – and my IT guy is still loading programs and the like. (I know you are a MAC guy, so you are probably chuckling right now.) All your directions were spot-on and we easily found Casa La Luna early Thursday afternoon. What a wonderful job you have done in the redesign and the decorations! I am very jealous of your kitchen – I am already looking into upgrading my own kitchen with a Dacor stove. Everything is so comfortable yet very classy. Nugget loved to wander both the front and back yards and it was a real treat for him. He loved to sit on the rugs in the main room – he thought they were there just for him. We had no concerns nor issues! We did add batteries to the remote control for the massage bed as it went out the first day we were there. We quickly figured out the universal remote for the entertainment center – how fun is that! We also really liked the pellet stove – we did need it toward the end of the week. We worked hard to leave it all clean and just like we found it. Thank you again for offering your lovely home to us and to Nugget. It was really a very special long weekend for all of us. We hope to be back! Alix

Beautiful Ojai home with lots of privacy

  • 5 of 5

This home is amazing. I have stayed there three times already and each time has been wonderful. It is beautiful, almost luxurious inside.

Even though it's on a street corner close to town, it is very, very quiet inside. It is decorated beautifully in fact being there, has inspired me to redecorate my own home. The bedrooms are far apart which adds to the privacy and the studio is very private and self-contained. My favorite part of the house is that beautiful open kitchen and the large bathtub/spa.

This has become my "home away from home" and I would recommend it to anyone who likes beautiful rooms and privacy. You wouldn't know it from the outside, but on the inside, it's a little castle .

I have also found the owner to be very responsive, kind and professional. I will come back on my next visit to Ojai.

Perfect Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

A group of friends stayed at Richards house in Ojai over Memorial Day weekend for a much needed escape from the City. It was the perfect property for our friends. The kitchen is amazing and really well equipped so we were able to cook meals as group, hang out in the backyard and explore Ojai. Thank you again for letting us share your space!

Well maintained, clean and appointed in nice style.

  • 4 of 5

Arriving and staying at this great little vacation home was easy as the Owners had well written instructions from the use of high end appliances to the local attractions and restaurants. The living space was clean & worked well for us and the bathroom was large and newer with good storage. King bed was comfy and the closet space was more than adequate. There is a private back yard that feels like your own sweet get away.

A "walk to" location for coffee or lunch at restaurants and hiking nearby was excellent-just as the Owner had mentioned.

We would stay again! Thanks Rich for your fast responsiveness and attention to detail.

Great reunion in Ojai!

  • 5 of 5

This property was beautiful! The kitchen was totally updated and so lovely. We spent almost all of our down time on the back patio, which was great! The town of Ojai was very accessible/nearby, and had lots of fun places to check out.

A Real Gem

  • 5 of 5

Casa La Luna has exceeded our expectations at every turn. The owners (Rich and Carol) have taken the time to make this a special home away from home for its visitors. First of all, the kitchen is well appointed with all sorts of conveniences. The gourmet stove has been a real treat and the quality of cookware is excellent. The living space is open and very comfortable with a lovely chaise lounge and oversized chair/ottoman. Everything has been updated. The bathroom is on par with the rest of the home. Jacuzzi tub and stand up shower are beautiful. The property is completely fenced in and perfect for the dog. The patio has a cozy table with umbrella and I would sit outside to read or play with the dog. El Roblar Street is only one block over, with many shops and a little market, The Farmer and the Cook. They do wonderful fresh juices (food, too) and I'd walk over in the afternoon for a refreshing treat. Lake Casitas is a short drive and a beautiful place to spend the day. Casa La Luna is a real gem and definitely recommend staying here.
