Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
A delightful haven for you and a loved one, or great transitional/student housing this island-flavored, art-filled artists' nook is the perfect hideaway. Sleep in the custom-made bed, visit shops and sights, sip wine or just hang out and cook or bbq and read a book and take in the chilled out, artsy vibe! PLEASE NOTE: FOR MANY YEARS, WE HAVE ONLY RENTED THIS SPACE OUT BY THE MONTH OR TWO/THREE/MORE. This is the minimum amount of time that we can do this, per local rules.

The space
A delightful haven for you and a loved one (or overflow for holiday guests), this island-flavored artists' nook is a perfect hideaway. Sink into the generous clawfoot tub (shower too), light the candles and sip a glass of wine. Cook a romantic alfresco meal in the kitchen/dining room. The oversized log bed (queen) begs to be stretched out in with a good book. We are a 100% Smoke-free property as well. All the fun and ease of living in beautiful downtown Ojai, sans responsibilities!

Steps from the Farmers Market, all downtown shops and Italian fine or casual dining, Chinese, sushi, Thai, Mexican, sandwiches, old and new-style American food, Rainbow Bridge (healthy groceries and ready-made food if you don't feel like using the kitchen), Close to several local watering holes, Sushi and tequila bars, plus The Vine and Casa Barrancas' tasting room)....you name it, and you can get to it in a two-minute walk.

Ojai was recently featured in Vogue as a wonderful Shangri-La as well.

Quiet street, family neighborhood, close to local hiking trails, tennis courts (home to the famous 100+ year old "The Ojai" tennis tournament, or just bring your racquets and have fun) Golfer? Hop on the Ojai Trolley for $0.50! We are minutes from Soule Park. Yoga enthusiasts will delight in making the one-minute walk to the famous Lulu Bandhas' studio, just down the street.

Easy street parking, sunny small fenced yard. There is one very sweet dog that is in his own section of the yard separated from the studio.

Need something special? Please let us know in advance and we will try and help you. See something you like? Ask, it may be for sale!




Our guests are blessed to be in the middle of downtown Ojai - Here are a few highlights: Check out "A Taste Of Ojai" on Vimeo

We see our guests from time to time if we are home, so our interaction is basically on the guests' terms :)

We are in the middle of EVERYTHING! We are literally the middle of all the downtown maps (sometimes I have to open them extra-wide to find our street) and we have very friendly neighbors.

The Ojai Trolley ($1) has two stops within a block from the house and the Gold Coast Vista bus ($1.75 for adults) stops two blocks away, in case you would like to go to/from Ventura or the train station there.

Enjoy yourselves! Relax, park the car and leave it there for your whole stay! Let us know if you have any questions!

Kitchen, own bath, short walk to downtown, or lounge around on your own.

We enjoy visiting but respect your privacy :)

Downtown Ojai is a great place to live and we have a friendly, family oriented, creative neighborhood.

We are steps from both the Ojai Trolley and the Gold Coast Bus (and you can transfer from one to the other if you ask for a transfer ticket) as well as taxis, etc. Or rent bikes from the Mob shop!

If you have a larger party or a family, please see our other listing or message me for details and I will direct you to it! I

I'm a wedding planner/floral designer from the last small beach town in Southern California. My husband Robert is an amazing artist (he built the beds you'll be sleeping in and did most of the artwork you will find on the property) designer and sculptor, and he is a highly skilled massage/bodywork therapist with clients ranging from professional athletes to those in wheelchairs - and everyone in between! Please let us know if you would like to book a massage with him. We love: Traveling (Hawaii is a big one, as we have family there, but we have been to Japan, Sweden, Denmark, Australia, England, Thailand, Cambodia, Costa (Website hidden by Airbnb) name a few) the beach, watersports, volleyball, art, music, (good) design, Pixar movies, gardening (well, ONE of us does...I am much better at working with cut flowers..). We love traveling in the States as well, our big favorites are exploring our home California coast, San Francisco, Hawaii, Yosemite, Aspen Valley in Colorado, and the beaches anywhere we can find them. Things I can't live without: English Tea, the latest book I'm reading, Thai or Indian (read: SPICY!) food, champagne, dark chocolate, my husband, Radiohead, our kitty Honu, our "JackRat" puppy Bao and my iPhone. Not in that order. We spend quite a bit of time working on our 1928 California cottage house....Most recently, we added beautiful stone to our front porch and stairs, new stones my husband collected outside as hardscape, and a new collection of planter boxes to the grounds. It gets nicer all the time here, so come on back, something is sure to be different! Please ask if you like something, it may be available for purchase! As hosts, the most frequent comment we hear is, "you need to raise your prices" - and our answer is, "nope". We want to provide you with an AMAZING experience & we love to give local recommendations, tips and things to do. What we want you to do as guests? Enjoy OJAI !! Get the appetizer, bottle of wine, souvenir from one of the local shops- that is why we keep our pricing as low as we possibly can. We are mindful of your needs, which may simply be for some much-needed down time.
