My family and I relocated to So Ca. from Berkeley in search of a new adventure and a place to temporarily hang our hat. Our stint in Ojai was to be a 4 year commitment. We are going on 17 years now. It has been just the absolute perfect place to raise our children and dogs here. When we found this property we immediately fell in love with it.The setting reminded us of our travels through the South of France. It has been a work in progress and a labor of love. Our most fondest memories of our travels abroad were meeting the families who owned farmhouses that we had stayed at. This vacation rental has allowed us to connect with incredibly fascinating people from all over the states and the world. Now we have the opportunity to be the hosts, and we are loving it!! We share our property with 2 dogs, 4 hens, quail, bunnies, squirrels and a multitudes of birds. We have hosted visitors from our other vacation rental vrbo 300370 since 2009 and has been the most rewarding experience for me and my family!
Maida Interiano purchased this cottage in 2005
This property held a strong nostalgic feel to our travels abroad. The absolute visual and spiritual beauty and serenity of the East End was immediately captivating.
There is an abundance of nature. The colors, the sounds, scents and awe inspiring vistas is all around us. Everyday is a spiritual awakening and an oasis. I sit out most days in the mornings with my cup of coffee to capture the activity of the animals when they arise. As the evening approaches the sounds once again changes. Where we live there are no street lights which gives us on clear evenings the most spectacular view of the stars. My most favorite time of the day is in the evening, especially when the cool breeze fills the night air. Dining outdoors feels like we are on vacation also. We take our dogs on walks along pepper and olive tree lined roads. We also enjoy the hiking trails just up the road. We are fortunate to have neighbors who grow fruits and sell them at fruit stands on location. Freshly picked avocados, oranges, lemons and more.
My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the casita. It was very peaceful and low key. Exactly what we were looking for. I invited several friends over for an evening and the first thing they said upon entering the cottage was," Oh how cute!!!" They all said they wanted to live in the cottage. :) The patio and the fire pit was enjoyable as well as the chickens who came over to say "hello".... And the bed was sooooo comfortable! Maida was welcoming and a gracious host...... Ojai is a magical town. We will be back!!
We stayed in the casita farther from the pool and really liked the inside. The king bed and pillows were better than most high end hotels. Note that the drought is still going on so Ojai has water limits and yards are not as green as they used to be. We took our small dog but the yards are not enclosed in back. It would be great if the one we stayed in was blocked from the pool area but we just kept her on a long leash to wander around. There were also 2 adorable cats always sitting outside our back door so best she was on a leash! We walked the neighborhood each day because it was so pretty. The owner is very sweet and gave us tips where to go and left us fresh eggs from her hen. There are a lot of windows which was great for light during the day but some windows did not have shades for sleeping in so you either have to get creative covering them or just bring an eye cover. We sat outside at night after dinner and listened to music and turned the tree lights on which was nice and relaxing, then turned off all lights to try to see the stars. We are already planning to go back to the other casita on the other side of the property which has a less private yard but faces the sunset. I would recommend this place to others!
Beautiful property, wonderful owner who made us feel right at home!
Maida and her Casita Encanto were absolutely wonderful! My husband, dog, and I came to Ojai for a friend's wedding and we had never been to Ojai before.
We are so happy we chose to stay at the Casita! The studio was light, clean, and had more than everything we could need. Maida could not have been more welcoming and even brought us flashlights and coffee during an Ojai spread blackout!
There were plenty of blankets, towels, and even a dog bowl with treats for our pup. We loved hanging by the pool and her property is gorgeous. When we have an excuse to come back to Ojai, we would definitely stay at the Casita Encanto again!
this was our first time at this property. we were welcomed by the owner and felt like at home right away. She is so sweet and generous with her property. The room was perfect for us with two small dogs. we will definitely stay there again.
My fiancé and I came up here for a romantic weekend getaway. It was a great location -- close drive to hikes by the Thatcher school but close enough to bike to town. Maida very lovely -- allowed us to borrow two bikes to ride into town with. She checked in with us often to assure we were okay, and know all the local going-ons (as well as to make sure we grabbed some eggs from her chickens!). She invited us to join her for sunset at Meditation Mount but we ended up staying in for some R&R after a long day out.
The studio was decorate very cute, clean, super comfy bed with all the kitchen amenities we needed. It was a bit cool to hang by the pool but we did jump in once :) Overall a lovely stay.
For my wifes birthday we decided to head out of town for a couple days of very needed rest for both of us. This property we stayed in offered just what we needed, quiet. The house itself is one room with living room, kitchen, bed with a bathroom. The house is well appointed, the kitchen has everything you need and bed is very comfortable. We went for hikes during the day then at night sat at the fire pit sipping wine and eating Smores. The stars at night are fantastic if you enjoy star gazing. In addition we brought our big dog who loved roaming around the rather large property. Maida and her son are very polite and friendly and took care of us very well. My only draw back for the 3 days we were there is the price requested may be a bit high. Maybe this is just us but we did feel it was priced a bit steep at the end.
