Beautiful fun space to relax, be creative, cook, chill in the hammock, fall asleep under the stars, or in your cozy room.
3 sweet cats live here, Mia Edgar and Milo. Mia is the only one who will greet you though, don't take it purrsonal : )
This is a space that encourages peace and harmony and community!

The space

Located between Ojai and Lake Casitas on a 5-acre rural property, this is a nice place to rest and catch up with yourself.
Bright and airy kitchen, cool and artistic living room with a fireplace and musical instruments and a peaceful country atmosphere off the back deck sofa (or hammock if you choose)

Guest access

Kitchen utilities, tea and coffee and snacks, netflix and playstation in the living room, guitars, charmingly out of tune piano, cat pets, hammock naps and fire making inside or outside :)

Interaction with guests

I am home working and resting quite often and am so happy to give you your space or to be available asap to help you with something :) AND I do also enjoy learning about someone new and sharing a little story or two, so if that happens... great!! :)

Other things to note

The bathroom is lightly and respectfully shared.
Since it is an older house the plumbing is sensitive so please be aware and conservative in the restroom please :) No wipes! Only toilet paper!!
The second bed in the listing, is an air mattress and if you would like me to set it up, please request in advance! Thank you : )
There are other people that may be here or may not be here!
I could be here (Heather)
Another guest could be here as well!
My cats are always here : ) Inside/ Outside kitties who are super duper chill and sweet.
ALSO we are in the country so to speak... the roosters may go off earlier than you would expect and there are dogs in the distance that may bark and a cat could meow, there could be a skunk in your path or a raccoon or owls or spiders!!! Animals live out here too and they make noises (and sometimes my neighbors do too :/ ) If you are a super light sleeper, I would suggest bringing some earplugs for your maximum relaxation.

Heather’s place is super peaceful, an easygoing welcome vibe and beautiful. Lovely bathroom oils for the bath and candles and really beautiful furnishings. The spot is super close to ojai and near ventura. Parking for your carand lots to do in the area. I highly recommend going to Meditation Mount around sunset. A tip Heather gave me and one of the highlights of my trip!

If you are looking for a restful getaway in a house filled with inspiring art (done by Heather) next to a beautiful pepper tree and rolling hills, this is your place. The room is beautiful. The bed is comfortable. Heather is lovable. I highly recommend this place

Our stay with Heather was short but sweet. She went above and beyond with her hospitality offering bits of comfort with each interaction, great conversation while we were home and tea in the morning. The room was very clean and the house is beautifully decorated with original art pieces. I would definitely stay at Heathers again when visiting Ojai.

Great place, great location! Ojai is a really nice place nearby. Lovely cats! Although we haven't met Heather the communication was good. Would highly recommend her place. Lovely secluded garden & a good bed.

If you (like me) are looking for tranquility and a break from busy urban life then Heather's home is the place to be! It is a short drive to Ojai and only a 20 min drive to Ventura or Oxnard, so beaches, shops and great restaurants aren't too far away. There's also access to the kitchen if you like having the option to purchase some groceries and make a light meal instead of only dining out while traveling. I liked sitting out on the back porch to watch the sunrise and sunset (and one of the cats, Mia, might join :-) ). Heather had to be out of town during my stay so I didn't have the pleasure of meeting her in person; however, she was easily reachable and talked with me over the phone to go over check in before I arrived. She checked in by text occasionally to make sure things were going well and was always reponsive when I contacted her with any questions during my stay. If you are planning to travel in the area I can't recommend Heather's place enough! It's a gorgoeus, artsy home in a peaceful, friendly location and she is a spectacular host.
