I know you will enjoy my private guest house with a comfy queen bed, its own kitchen and gated patio. Corta St. Casita is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers. It is steps away from the Ojai Valley Bike trail, 2.6 miles from down town Ojai, and a 15 min car ride to Ventura beaches. We also provide an organic coffee and tea station for you to enjoy. The casita is connected to our house by a large carport and is very private with no shared walls.

The space

Everything you see in the photos is private to the casita and not shared. There is a TV with Netflix and Roku but no cable. I have equipped the kitchen to cook and enjoy a meal inside or on the patio. You will also find an organic coffee and tea station in the room. The casita is on an acre lot and connected to my house by a large carport with no shared walls. Although Sandy, our dog, lives next door the casita is a pet free zone for those with allergies.

Guest access

Down a long driveway you will find the onsite parking spot in front of the casita gate. Through the gate is a private patio and the entrance to the casita. My house will be to the left of the carport. Please do not hesitate to knock on the door or text if you have any questions, otherwise we give you your privacy.

Interaction with guests

I love meeting new people and am usually available to meet and greet. My family understands their are different kinds of needs when on a trip and we give you space and privacy or interaction depending on your interest and our availability.
Looking forward to your stay.

Other things to note

Also Ojai is in a stage 3 drought and we have let the property lawns go. We are keeping trees and shrubs alive but the area is pretty brown. Luckily we live among many beautiful trees. The casita patio is landscaped, as you see in the pictures, with lovely drought tolerant plants.

Carrie's Casita is a great place to stay when visiting Ojai and the surrounding area. The Casita is as pictured and has a nice bathroom, well equipped kitchen and a lovely yard to relax in. The wifi is good and you can park your car right outside. Although the Casita is next to her house you have lots of privacy.

The cassita is beautiful, charming, restful, marvelous...I could rave on about this piece of heaven. The courtyard flowers, the comfy bed, the coffee press, the fragrant shampoo...each little touch is crafted to make your stay special. You'll love it! Carrie makes it all so easy.

The casita was so comfortable and loaded with nice personal touches. We especially enjoyed sitting in the private patio for breakfast or an evening glass of wine. Having a small kitchen was such a plus. Great central location for Ventura and Santa Barbara and a nice drive to Solvang.

There was so much I enjoyed about working with Carrie and staying in her home. She responded to my messages quickly, was attentive to my needs, and has a lovely casita. In particular, I enjoyed sitting on the patio in the morning, watching the hummingbirds, and drinking the tea that she provided. Thanks for everything, Carrie!

My name is Carrie Rubalcava and have lived in Ojai for 35 years, I love this community. My husband Mike and I went to high school together here and have enjoyed raising our family in this town. We have 2 sons, Nicholas 19, who is in college in San Fransisco and Quinten 16, lives at home in Ojai. I love gardening, reading, the outdoors (especially the ocean), many forms of art and cooking. Our whole family loves to create beautiful things and the outdoors (ask us about hiking trails and surf spots). Putting together the Casita was a family group endeavor that we truly enjoyed.
