Situated on a quiet viewing knoll in a prestigious area of Ojai, this beautiful home offers upgrades including high wood beam ceilings, wood floors, granite counters, a rock fireplace, and halogen lighting. A patio is perfect for sitting in the sun with a coffee and watching the sky change colors, while being framed by magnificent oak trees. This is a very quiet, lush, and private property which is also close to town.
Del Oro is a lovely, quiet neighborhood between Ojai's luxurious Arbolada and quaint Downtown. It is close to the Topa Topa foothills, and yet, just blocks to town Downtown Ojai. The area boasts Libbey Park, Ojai's Boutique Shopping Arcade, Elegant or Family-Style Dining, the Ojai Playhouse Movie Theatre, and Rainbow Bridge Grocer. Local events include the Sunday Farmer's Market, the Ojai Film Festival, Art in the Park, Ojai Day, and the Artist Tours A-D. The unique microclimate of Ojai creates a distinctive feeling which is peaceful and serene. The air is sweet, and there are many natural trails and water holes to enjoy. It is the place for those seeking a perfect blend of luxury and old world respite.
The floor plan for this property includes two bedrooms, a bathroom, a den with views, a kitchen, a dining area, and a large living room with views. One of the bedrooms is not as private as the other, as one must pass through it to access the den, second bedroom, and the bathroom. It is perfect for couples, or small family groups.
The Owner lives on the property but her suite is hidden fairly well from the main house. Please speak with the Owner regarding privacy and how the property is shared. There is periodic access to a laundry room, which is shared. The Owner is an Artisan, and you may hear some work going on with metal, but, generally, the Owner makes every effort to respect the Tenants' privacy and quietude.
Note: the City of Ojai has decided to enforce its ordinance prohibiting vacation rentals in all zones. Because of this, the property is only offered on a 30 day basis. The Owner travels frequently while the house is rented to guests.

I am a local REALTOR and Artisan. I love living in Ojai, and want to share my property people who come to Ojai to enjoy the arts to pursue other endeavors. As an avid traveler myself, I really enjoy staying at other people's houses when I travel, and feel that home sharing is a valuable contribution to the global traveling community. Without home sharing, I would have never enjoyed some of the world's most beautiful places with the same eye.
Sherry Stuckey purchased this house in 2007
This property is uniquely situated very close to town (1/4 mile), but yet it is nestled in the foothills, so it is very private and quiet. The Ojai Valley Inn and Spa is about one mile from the property, and so it is a great location to enjoy Ojai's festivals and other events.
This location is quiet and bright, with views framed by lovely trees. It is also very close to town and private.
We had a family gathering with my Son and Daughter-in-Law and found this house to be well-appointed and quiet. Reading on the back patio was a delight, as well as sitting in the beautiful living room to play games and chat. The Owner lives on the property, and it was nice to have Sherry greet us and provide recommendations for dining. Our vacation was delightful and this beautiful house was just perfect for our stay!
We very much enjoyed staying at this lovely home in Ojai! What an oasis.
Sherry (owner) VERY responsive, accommodating, and easy to work with
Serene location and space
Close to the little downtown, but enough removed for lots of privacy
Simple but homey decor
Very clean and organized
Beautiful sweeping views
Lots of beds
A/C (though it actually kept pretty cool if we were careful to close windows)
Beautiful front porch and sitting area in the backyard with BBQ
Lots of space in living room for socializing with friends and family
Nice big driveway, loop around, for easy access
CONS: (Keep in mind I am rating this space 5 stars so the cons were not a big enough deal to lose any stars)
House / bedroom layout - it's a little strange. Would not be an issue for just one couple to stay. As far as beds go, it can accommodate 6 + 2 couches. However, it's laid out such that two bedrooms are through another bedroom...meaning you have to go through one bedroom (the best one) to access the rest of the house. We made it work because we are all family. But just keep that in mind based on your group's needs.
One bathroom - again, no problem with just a couple visiting. But for 5 people, it was a little difficult. No big deal as we made it work, and were aware going into it. It's just always nice to have an additional bathroom.
Thanks so much for the awesome house! We'll definitely consider it again when we come back.
This house was just 1 mile from the conference property. We were 4 women and each of us got our own room and very comfortable bed. The back yard with the 2 outdoor eating spaces made for great space to work and visit. I highly recommend this home. I can see how it would work for a family gathering, and it worked for colleagues. We all enjoyed our stay and we may even stay again should the conference occur in Ojai again.
This house and surrounding scenic grounds provided the perfect base for my two adult kids and me to spend time together reconnecting and luxuriating in the beauty of the sunsets against the mountains that defined the back of the property. It was an easy walk to town, and everyone was so friendly. Be sure not to miss the weekly outdoor market on Saturdays or the Ojai Valley Museum. This was my first VRBO rental, and I was a bit anxious about it, but Sherry, the owner, was easy to work with and everything was as represented. I would definitely return, and I highly recommend this property.
Convenience was a major factor in our decision to rent near Downtown Ojai, but we also wanted to experience a natural setting. This property offered both of these things. We really liked the warm feeling of the house and the many trees on the property. It felt like we were in Tahoe, but without the lake. Downtown Ojai offers so much -- from antique garden art to trees wrapped in sweaters to keep them "warm." In the heat of the Summer, this seemed unnecessary, but the trees seemed happy anyway. I found the most beautiful dream catcher at a little store Downtown adorned with rose quartz and other gems. We hung it in the living room during our stay and enjoyed watching glints of the the sun setting upon it as we thought of our dreams for the next lovely day!
We stayed here for a weekend while attending wedding events at Ojai. The house was nice, clean, and comfortably fit our group of seven adults and one infant. The booking process was smooth and there were no hidden fees. The owner was easy to reach by email or phone, was very accommodating, and had no extraordinary requests for check in and check out. Overall, we were very happy and would recommend this property to others!
Our family of 5 enjoyed the private location of this property, set in lovely neighborhood in the hills of Ojai. The stone paths in the back yard were quite fun for the kids to explore... they found lizards and saw quail and various birds. The description in the VRBO write-up was very accurate, and the house was clean, well-kept. The owner was very responsive to questions / concerns and thank you Sherry for sending back our iphone charge cord!
