Ojai is all about natural beauty.
From the Pink Moment on the Topa Topa bluffs to the amazing mountain views–everywhere you look it's breathtaking. The property is right next to the trailhead of the Ojai Land Conservatory offering miles of back country hiking, mountain biking.
The property is 5 minutes from beautiful Lake Casitas and 20 minutes from the beautiful Pacific Ocean. There is a large horse ranch across the street. You'll be five minutes from the village center for shopping, great restaurants and art galleries. The Ojai Valley Inn & Spa is five minutes away offering world class golf and spa accommodations for the most discerning traveler.
In all of the central coast of California, there is nothing that matches the old California charm of Ojai!
Our family had a wonderful stay here...very comfortable and well appointed. The property is located one block from amazing hiking trails and one mile from the Ojai Valley Inn and Spa. Ojai is so beautiful! We have booked our Thanskgiving Holiday again...can't wait to come back!
What an amazing time we had at this lovely home. You can't go wrong with this location! The pool was cold but oh so perfect in the warmth of the Ojai sun. Ventura river was flowing and the house is just across the street from the trail heads in the river bottom. The yard smelled of jasmine and orange blossoms all day and the house fit our large family so comfortably.
The house itself and the grounds are beautifully kept and well maintained. It's quite clean, well furnished, well worth the price. Owner is quite nice and attentive, responsive through emails, texts, etc.
What is not mentioned, is that there's another small house, across from the pool where the owner lives, so he's around, all the time. No issues with the house and location however it should be clearly specified that the owner lives within the property, which in my experience, created a lack of privacy for my guests and I. I do not recommend.
Two families stayed here and were thoroughly pleased with the amenities and location of the home. Great shops and restaurants in walking distance. The home is set back some and private. Our children played in the pool in back as well on the grass in front. The town of Ojai is very charming and we look forward to coming back to this home in the near future.
We had an amazing long weekend in Ojai! While the NYC was snowed in, we had a chance to live and stay in a paradise. Lovely town, nice boutiques and restaurants, only 20 min drive to the ocean. Thanks to the owner hospitality, we felt very comfortable in the house. Lots of spring flowers, quiet part of Ojai, far away from any noise. It was too cold for a swimming pool, but we had a good use of the hot tub. Definitely will come back next year, but for a longer stay!
My husband and I spent 3 days enjoying our stay in this lovely home! Very private and peaceful and very clean!!!!
We enjoyed the grounds, the campfire and amazing hiking trails are a block away. Beautiful surroundings with great Ojai sunsets. We are looking forward to coming back to the house again.
Our family had a wonderful stay here...very comfortable and well appointed. The property is located one block from amazing hiking trails and one mile from the Ojai Valley Inn and Spa. Ojai is so beautiful! We have booked our Thanksgiving Holiday again...can't wait to come back!
