Your vacation begins the moment you drive up the small private street and through the gate of the lovely home, where you'll be greeted by a multitude of colors and vegetation, from succulents over lush trees to vibrant flowers and juicy fruits that can be picked right off the vine, depending on the season. Despite the recent wildfires, this stunning home's beauty is still pristine!
Inside, the casita boasts 1,572 square feet of delicately appointed living space, featuring 2 separate sleeping quarters, each with its own unique style and decor - ideal for 2 couples traveling together. While one couple sleeps on the full-sized sofa bed, the other couple can sleep in the king-sized round hanging bed in the same living space! Any other travel companions will love sleeping on the queen-sized bed in the other inviting bedroom.
The elegant and spacious casita also features upscale designer furnishings and all of the modern conveniences expected in a true home-away-from-home. From the comfy couches and the HD TV in the living area, to the unique and beautifully designed atrium-style kitchenette with french glass doors, you'll love every part of this marvelous property!
Outside, you'll experience complete serenity in the splendor of nature in the hundred-year-old garden with a variety of pines, fruit, and pepper trees, along with beautiful fountains, all surrounding the casita. Sip your morning coffee on the outside terrace overlooking the garden, watch breathtaking sunsets in the evenings, stargaze from the private jacuzzi or marvel at the incredible mountain and valley views from the property's swim-spa-lap-pool - available upon request during the summer.
Explore the fun, sacred grounds, which boast many secret destination points, such as a magnificent outdoor amphitheater, ideal for yoga, meditation, dancing, and music, along with the "Stone Peace Chapel," which belongs to the main house, the "Casa De Paz." The "Stone Peace Chapel" is a magnificent venue for small weddings and can even be transformed into an additional bedroom for extra sleeping arrangements.

Two teenage sons, husband & I had a relaxing weekend stay at Casa de Paz in Ojai. Private setting, adventuresome decor, quiet & peaceful. Property is lovely and inviting. Didn't want to leave and hope to come back!
Online description of the place was not accurate
This place really is 1 bedroom, 1 living room and 0.5 bath. The living room had 1 bed, and 1 "hanging circular bed", which took up the entire living room space. The bathtub was in the public living room, so nobody can actually shower in private. There was no actual stove in the kitchen, but instead there was an electric camping stove that doesn't allow you to cook meals. Therefore, meals couldn't be cooked or heated. We couldn't even make oatmeal/porridges for kid's breakfast with that electric camping stove during our first morning there. The kitchen space was very small. Not being able to shower or make meals during our first night there, we left the next morning (even though we had no reservations elsewhere). We texted the property's contact the next morning, and never received any reply back.
Jing, thanks for taking the time to leave this review. We take great care to ensure that each of our listings is as advertised, but we apologize if certain aspects of this home were not to your liking. We have passed your comments along to the homeowner so that your feedback can be addressed as necessary. She has assured us that the home is exactly as advertised, but we are updating the description nonetheless to provide further clarity. Thanks again! Best, The Evolve Team
This is the MOST magical spot. Amazing. Highly recommended!
Wonderful Relaxing Mini Vacation
This place is so peaceful we didn't want to come back, I would write more but it might be booked next time we come back :)
Magical and Comfortable
I loved my week long stay at The Secret Garden Suite.
The Suite itself is whimsical yet extremely comfortable. The 5-acre property, Casa de Paz, is unique and gorgeous. The owners, Eva and Marcus are amazing people and hosts.
I initially reserved The Secret Garden Suite for it’s location-almost on the border of Thacher-my daughter’s school. The experience turned out to be so much more than just convenient and practical. It was magical and probably life changing.
I certainly plan to return.
Incredibly Beautiful & Peaceful Oasis
What a gorgeous retreat this became for me. This property is situated at the base of massive mountains that have absolutely breathtaking views when hiked. After a long day exploring the nearby hikes or walking around the massive bright blue lake, it was absolute heaven to come back to this Ojai Ranch. Whether it was relaxing in one of 3 jacuzzis or enjoying a delicious meal of local produce at one of the many beautiful outdoor structures, we felt totally pampered and like royalty. Every detail from the interior design of the magical bungalow to the flowers growing along the stone path has love and intention. We got to know Marcus and Eva and their beautiful daughter Shanti, and they have such vitality and love. It was a pleasure sharing meals and getting to know them. What beautiful people inside and out, their bright shining light is truly a testament to their sacred land! It is inspiring and full of life here. A perfect place for a getaway. Thank you Eva, Marcus, Shanti, and Yogi the Doggy! :)
