Great place. You should be warned, this is a working turtle conservatory. The property is filled of turtles (fun) and workers (eh). Bad news: During the day workers are constantly walking by the house and pool. Zero privacy. Kinda of a buzzkill while trying to hang out in the hammock with a beverage. Good news: At one point one of the workers asked, "You want to see a turtle lay eggs?" Again, nice folks. Just a lot of them. Everywhere. Constantly. At least they're not there at night. Ojai, as always, is awesome.

A Magical Oasis -- Ojai's Best Kept Secret

  • 5 of 5

I travel quite often and this has been my favorite rental to date.


Ojai is such a beautiful little artsy/hippy town in the valley. The people are so very nice and it is typical for the skies to be crystal clear. Not to mention the citrus tree everywhere!


The grounds that the house resides on are magical. I could not believe this oasis was actually available when I booked it. The property is a turtle conservancy and the staff members breed endangered turtles on the grounds. It gets pitch black at night, but knowing the turtles are there is quite comforting. There are several homes on this property, but all are extremely private. I stayed in the pool house / bungalow which was perfectly outfitted in contemporary Spanish decor, complete with interesting taxidermy everywhere. Clean, minimal and simple. I also have to say that the grounds people were so very nice. I was traveling alone and it made me feel very comfortable to know these men and women were there if I needed anything.


The pool is private and only for people staying in the bungalow. There is an amazing hammock in the front of the house that I could have laid in for days. The red stove in the kitchen is vintage and working. It is great to cook on. Also, there is a secluded outdoor shower which is very convenient.

You must stay here if you are visiting Ojai! It's truly magical.

"Out of Africa" except in Ojai!

I felt very honored to spend time at the "Turtle Sanctuary" the staff was so kind and helpful and ready to help with any questions re:the Turtles! The Grounds are truly magical and the pool was a perfect respit! Already trying to figure out when I'm returning. Oh... And completely Romantic and only a hour from Lis Angeles!!!

Unique and truly special.

  • 5 of 5

This property was a perfect getaway. I'd never rented through VRBO before and this place seemed too good to be true. It is real and better than the pictures depict. Quiet, peaceful and gorgeous. The tortoise conservatory is beautifully manicured, respectful and incredibly informative! I've spent my days since returning home figuring out how to get back there as soon as possible. So go and enjoy, just not when I want to and, please, keep it special.
