About the property

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!

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 Ojai

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!

Wonderful Getaway

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I needed a few days to recharge and relax, this was the perfect place. Quiet, beautiful and serene. Comfortable housing, nice amenities and a beautiful location. Conveniently located near town so an easy drive to all the wonderful restaurants. This would have been an absolute 5 star review had the bed been better on our backs (comfortable but both of us had low back pain in the mornings) and the advertised bikes been in a little better shape. But Maida (the owner) was fabulous and did her best to make our stay as comfortable and relaxing as possible. She had one of the bikes fixed so we can't complain about her service. It was overall a very joyous and needed getaway.

A lovely space with a SHARED pool right next to your apt and marginal A/C.

  • 4 of 5

My fifth year in a row VRBO in Ojai this time of year. This was by far the best value -- the least expensive solo space. The studio has high ceilings, a beautiful East Ojai location and a pool. The A/C is an in-room unit half the size of the refrigerator. It is noisy and effective if used continuously. August in Ojai is very very hot.

When i arrived a family was using the pool -- they rented the other unit on the property. The pool is your front yard in this rental so be advised that if a family is there, you're part of the family. When they checked out, i had the next 3 days to myself with great peace and quiet. Except the landlady's dogs who barked at me when i walked by. Every time. But they settle down. Until the next time you walk by.

So all in all an affordable and comfortable place with the possibility of noisy daytime neighbors and a marginal A/C system.

Peaceful and Serene

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoy celebrating our anniversary in Ojai because it's so quiet and relaxing. We tried a new rental spot this year (since our usual is no longer available).and really loved the place. The owner (Maida) and her family are very welcoming, friendly and gracious. Such a lovely family! The location is off the beaten path, surrounded by beautiful hills, orange groves, and is peacefully quiet, which we love. The night sky is lit by millions of magical stars with the sound of nature surrounding you. The only downside is there's no air conditioner, which is only a problem if it's over 90 degrees. Fortunately, the pool is super refreshing and the heat wave ended after the 2nd day. The rest of our time was sheer bliss! We loved the huge shaded porch for reading and playing games. The restaurants in town (Suzanne's, No So Vita and Knead Bakery) were all so wonderful. We also discovered the most charming and quaint beach of Carpinteria, which was just the best! We are so grateful to Maida for opening her peaceful and serene home to visitors like us and we can't wait to visit again soon! ❤️💛💚💙💜

This Casita is exactly what we needed to take a break from our hectic life. The place was clean and well stocked. There is an olive tasting room about a mile away we walked to. We hiked at near by Lake Casitas. On Sunday we enjoyed going to the Farmers Market.
