We purchased this property after visiting Ojai many times over the years. We decided to relocate out of Los Angeles. We have thoroughly enjoyed the Ojai Valley with all the friendly people, including tourists and locals. We enjoy long walks, wine tasting, tennis, swimming and dining with good friends.
Carolyn Olsen purchased this cottage in 1992
We often vacationed in Ojai We saw this property and fell in love with it. It is a little piece of paradise yet a short walk to town and the Ojai Valley Inn.
This guest house is ideal for two people. We stayed for a month and enjoyed our stay, including the friendly owner Carolyn who attended to every request without being intrusive, her lovely poodle, and the weekly cleaning service. The kitchenette and fridge are small but workable, but all other aspects of the cottage are outstanding. The TV and Wifi always worked, and there is dedicated off-street parking and a lovely outdoor dining area with views of the Topa Topa. The bed is comfortable and there are plenty of pillows, sheets and towels. If you love to read, the book collection is one of the best I've seen in a rental cottage. From this cottage, you can take your daily walks throughout the Arbolada or stroll to downtown Ojai. We highly recommend this Ojai cottage and would not hesitate to rent it again.
We spent a week in Ojai and were thrilled with Carolyn's rental cottage. Not only was it quiet and private, but the 1 acre property was lush, with views to the mountains which border the Ojai Valley. As other guest have noted, the photos on the website do not actually do this cottage justice. It is perfect for two people. Carolyn affords her guests total privacy, briefly "touching base" periodically to make sure everything is OK and to offer advise for dining and sight seeing. I cannot imagine an rental better suited for a couple visiting Ojai.
We very much enjoyed our stay at the Guest Casita. The Casita was comfortably relaxing and beautifully decorated fitting our needs perfectly. We especially enjoyed the magnificent view of the mountains, listening to music and reading books from the impressive library provided by Carolyn (loved our daily visits from Stella too!). We also appreciated the quietness of the surrounding area yet close proximity to town - walking distance to great restaurants, shops and Ojai Valley Inn. Carolyn was very accommodating while being respectful of our privacy. This lovely Casita is a great place to stay while visiting Ojai! We plan to come back.
We had a great six night stay at the Guest House. Our host Carolyn was very warm and checked in with us to make sure we had everything we needed. This is a beautiful property in a fantastic location. Thank you Carolyn for the wonderful, relaxing stay!
We had an absolutely wonderful stay! The location is perfect.....a short walking distance to restaurants and shops, while also being secluded and quiet. The owner is very hospitable and the casita is very well appointed, with much attention given to the details for maximum comfort and convenience. We definitely would stay here again.
Amazing place, location and owners. Carolyn was very easy and accommodations to work with. Studio is very large and walking distance to everything in Downtown Ojai.
Wine tasting; Lake Casitas is 10 minutes away offering fishing, kayaking, and boating
