The BEST vacation home ever.

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I wanted to get away for the weekend, and upon our arrival, we were blown away. The photos here are great, but the actual property is even more amazing. A very nice man named Juan greeted us and got us all set up. The interior decor was incredible, and the surrounds reminded me of the old late 90s-2000s computer game Myst. Very secluded yet accessible to downtown. We loved feeding and interacting with all the tortoises who have free roam of the grounds. We will definitely be back, probably for a week!

peaceful guest house

  • 5 of 5

I avoided writing this because i don't want anyone else to know how fantastic this property is. I kept missing meetings because i didn't want to leave home. The turtles are fantastic, and the house is adorable with a great kitchen and excellent A/C. Only two bedrooms, but a LR suitable for singing and dancing. Very romantic if the large rattlesnake drawings in the artwork don't bother you.

A magical month in Ojai

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful adventure at this magical kingdom, we truly did not want to leave. The grounds and pool (s) are so inviting and one has the sense that they wandered into another land, in another time. Breath-taking, golden Topo / Topo mountain views, sweet-smelling air, and wildly beautiful landscaping, complete with orchards of orange and avocado trees... Truly one of the most stunning properties we have ever stayed - and the back-drop of the beautiful and endangered turtles makes the whole experience that much more mystic and unique. Everyone on staff at the property is kind and helpful, and any issue was rectified or addressed within hours. (Hotel-like service with all the privacy of a private home. ) We look forward to our return. -K. Vadas
