Overview

Ojai Studio Rental Photos and Description

Spacious Studio casita, sleeps 2 in king, air mattress for 2 additional guest

Our Casita Ojai is on a 2 acre property shared with my family. It is nestled by neighboring orange and avocado 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 an ideal location for travelers seeking a retreat like feel that is just around the corner to many sites of Ojai. We invite you to enjoy our spacious 700 sq ft. Studio suite guesthouse with 1 Bathroom with a shower, a fully equipped kitchen with an adjoining porch. The contemporary furnishings and abundant visual beauty, will immediately transform the wary traveler to a place of serenity. The amenities are vast from the down comforter bedding and spa robes to lounge in front of the fireplace in the winter or on the porch having coffee. Wake up from a restful nights sleep on our comfortable bed to the sounds of natures creatures. As a smoke free and green friendly property, we have also considered all the comforts of home! So pack light. Grill your fresh produce purchase from veggie stands around the corner or at our fabulous farmers market, and squeeze fresh lemon juice from our trees and splash olive oil from growers across the way on top to finish, and you'll be dining a fresco in a matter of minutes.

The spacious casita is an open floor plan with high beam ceilings which gives it an airy and open feel. French doors open to the porch and views of the pool and garden. Tastefully decorated with amenities to ensure for a home away from home feel. Imagine a personal massage on the covered porch, taking a dip in the pool after a day of hiking and biking, allowing yourself an afternoon nap in the hammock, escaping into a novel under an aged oak tree, reliving a childhood memory of roasting marsh mellows around a fire pit, or cuddling with that special someone having wine by star light, all this can be experienced here at casita Ojai. 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 at casita Ojai an exceptional getaway!

We look forward to hosting your visit to Ojai.

Warmly, your host in waiting

About Maida Interiano

A Berkeley native I moved to Ojai 17 years ago. The community, creative culture and slower paced lifestyle called to me. It has been just the absolute perfect place to raise my children and dogs. When I found this property I immediately fell in love with it.The setting reminded me of my travels through the South of France. It has been a work in progress and a labor of love. My most fondest memories of my travels abroad were meeting the families who owned farmhouses that I had stayed at. This vacation rental has allowed me and my family to connect with well traveled and fascinating people from all over the states and the world. Now we have the opportunity to be the hosts, and we are loving it!!

I have 2 children off to college, and one at home. My youngest is a junior host in training. We share our property with 2 dogs, 6 hens, quail, bunnies, squirrels and a multitudes of birds.

Maida Interiano purchased this studio in 2005

Why Maida Interiano chose Central Coast California

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.

What makes this studio unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We want to thank you SO SO much for the wonderful stay at your casita. Your property is gorgeous and perfect, and was exactly what we needed after a long first trimester. Your hospitality made everything so special- your sweet card, snacks, fresh fruit, eggs...and the warmth that you and your husband showed us. We will surely come back and have already recommended that our friends come and stay at your casita soon! Take care, and thanks again for everything!

Great property- caring host

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I (and our 2 dogs)had a wonderful 5 days at Casita Ojai, enjoying the very well thought out amenities of the Casita and the luxury of the pool. The Casita is on a large property on the East side of Ojai which has quiet streets lined with mansions and orange groves and yet is only a 5-10 minute drive from downtown and Meditation Mount. Maida is a very caring and responsive host and loves animals.Highly recommended!

Ojai Delight!

  • 4 of 5

Had a wonderful week visiting with my son and grand-dog at Casita Ojai hosted by Maida Interiano. Maida knows exactly how to welcome and interact with guests-being available and giving privacy at the same time. I felt welcome and also appreciated Maida's extraordinary hospitality. The swimming pool was a wonderful amenity during an unusually hot spell in June. The casita is comfortably furnished with a well-equipped kitchen and delightful patio which overlooks the pool. There is also a second casita in a Provincial style on the property which is also private and comfortably furnished. The property is centrally located in a lovely residential area not far from town and within a few minutes of most of the local attractions. I visit Ojai a few times a year and will definitely return to Casita Ojai!

Beautiful property for a relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

The owner is extremely friendly and customer service based, very quick to give recommendations of places to eat, things to do in town, but still gives you your space in the guest house. The listing description is accurate with regards to the location, layout, amenities, etc. She does have another guest house on the other side of the property, so if it is booked while you are there, it's possible you may be sharing the pool area with other guests. The property was very clean and well maintained. I would highly recommend this property; great price, five minutes from down town, and all the amenities included for a fun, relaxing stay.

A warm, secluded retreat-very special.

  • 5 of 5

Casita Ojai is the best of both worlds: secluded and sleepy and relaxing but still close to town and a stones throw away from wonderful hikes and secret Ojai destinations. The location has great views and a wonderful pool. Maida was so sweet and accommodating. Already planning my next visit. If you can, plan for a weeks' stay. Stock up at the Farmer's Market in town on Sunday, and cook delicious meals all week poolside. This rental is very special.

Wonderful getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place to stay. We loved hanging out on the front porch in the hammock relaxing and listening to music. Maida is a wonderful host who helps with recommendations for whatever you would like to do. We loved bbqing and using the pool. My husband, myself, and our 2 dogs had a fantastic stay.

We also have 2 local olive oil producers across from us and one down the street. We invite our guest to find eggs in our hen house when they are producing, its a treat. We are on site owners which allows us to address your needs and provide recommendations during your stay. The patios have been used for outdoor couples massages, intimate dinners, wedding rehearsal reception, family reunion gatherings, business meetings, musical performances, meditation, and wine tasting. This property has a creative, nutritive and positive energy to enjoy.
