About John & Sophia Bugay
Languages: English, Spanish, Italian, French. John and I have traveled the world and enjoy meeting and hosting new friends. We love the peace and quiet of our Orchard Property and hope you find the tranquility we do. We love to take long walks and breathing FRESH air. We are very health conscious and do not allow any smoking or noxious substances around us or our homes. We are Winemakers, and have very sensitive olfactory abilities, (no cats, no cigarettes). We very much enjoy drinking wine as well as making it. We may have some at the house if you wish to purchase. We love Hawaii, Mexico, Italy and France, hope to explore more of Europe, but most we love to be home in California.
John & Sophia Bugay purchased this Villa in 2013
Why John & Sophia Bugay chose Somis
We love the QUIET and SECLUSION and yet close to multiple areas with stores/movies/amenities. Our Villa is a 1200 sq ft Guest House, with a detached full service office if needed. There are no other persons living on the property. We live in Moorpark, approx. 15 minutes away. So we also come here to 'get away'! I love all the birds, we see Eagles, Owls, Red-tailed hawks, also bunnies and at night sometimes you can hear the Coyotes yapping, although I still have not seen one.
What makes this Villa unique
We love the fresh air and luxury of privacy. We love being in nature and open spaces, growing our own vegetables and herbs, entertaining in our courtyard dining area and fireplace is great. We love being in the country, yet in 15 minutes we can be dining in a fine restaurant or at the movies. We offer you lots of ORGANIC avocados when we have them. (pretty much all year long) We also offer you fresh ORGANIC eggs from our hens, if you have kids they love to go collect the eggs. (Hen house is far enough away from main house, so no worries about noise.) There is also a very nice sized custom made charcoal barbeque grill you can use in the courtyard. In the morning I love to sit in the alcove in the back yard and watch all the hummingbirds visiting our sweet flowers, really quite a show! There are so many!! Lovely butterflies as well! **We fully decorate during Thanksgiving and Christmas. **We are always upgrading, we had new carpet installed Dec 2017.

Nifty place to stay
Situated in a avocado grove, the house and grounds are really fun place to stay. There is a hot tub and a wrap-around grassy back yard, great for doggies. Enjoyed it allot.
A Beautiful vacation
My husband enjoyed two wonderful days at this beautiful home. I grew up in Simi Valley and remembered taking drives through the back roads to Ventura. I loved every moment! Everything you need or want is provided. We enjoyed everything about the home and property. I don’t think I’ve ever had such sound sleep in my life! We will be coming back again the next time we are in the area.
Wonderful hosts ~ perfect instructions for check in ~ 10 star accommodation!
Peaceful with stunning views
This home was beautiful and so peaceful! We were in the area to celebrate a friends memorial and this place was exactly what we needed. We spent most of our time outdoors enjoying the fire place reading books playing the guitar and napping with our dogs. We took walks through the orchards and enjoyed the stunning views of the valley. Wonderful place for reflection!
Terrific setting and peaceful stay
This is a very well appointed and well stocked retreat that is very secure and very comfortable. The owners were terrific, great communication from beginning to end, and very responsive to any questions or issues we might have. We would highly recommend this property for anyone travelling to this part of California looking for a rural retreat with urban amenities. First rate in every respect.
Charming petite Villa on 35 Actes of Beautiful Acocado Trees
Villa is beautifully decorated and maintained with every amenity you could hope for. We went with our 18 year olds, but the house screams romance. Kitchen is well appointed, as we ate in all meals. A lovely Oasis away from it all. Highly recommend.
Lovely peaceful stay, just what we needed!
After 5 weeks in the hustle and bustle of
San Diego and L.A, a peaceful, quiet stay on John and Sophia’s avocado farm was just what we were after.
We stayed in the house with our 2 year old son. The house is beautiful and really well equipped, surrounded by hundreds of avocado trees. We enjoyed sampling the delicious avocados and also the fresh eggs from the chickens!
The level of comfort in the house, the facilities/equipment and the level of detail which has gone into decorating and furnishing the house were all top notch.
John and Sophia’s hospitality was second to none, nothing was too much to ask and they clearly have a deep commitment to ensuring their guests are well looked after.
We’d love to return!
