Charming and quiet light-filled retreat surrounded by garden. Newly redone interior is bright and modern yet cozy and welcoming. The perfect place to relax after enjoying a walk around the hip village of Meiners Oaks, and all the amenities of the main town of Ojai, a five-minute drive (or ten-minute bike ride) away.

Guest access

The property is a back unit to a main front house. There is a separate gated access at the top of a driveway set back from the street. The two units are completely divided. You enter the house down a little walkway, and there is a private garden leading out from the main living area, as well as a little patio off of the kitchen.

In the garage storage area, there is a washer/dryer for your use, and three bikes: one adult Linus, one small adult/large kid, and one small kid.

Other things to note

This house is a great balance of country mouse/city mouse. Just far enough away from the city to make one feel completely at peace with a taste of life in the country. Located in a quiet neighborhood across from lush orange groves, the Ventura River Preserves are a 5-minute walk from your door, with trail rides on horseback available from Western Trail Rides. Please be aware that indigenous California wildlife is part of the landscape. Please in the warmer months tell kids to be vigilant as rattlesnakes are part of the natural landscape and guests should be aware when hiking and with kids and dogs to remain vigilant when it is hot out. These critters don't want to interact with us but this mountain range is their home so we should be aware when enjoying its natural splendor! Otherwise enjoy the utter gorgeousness! Incredible beaches are a 30 minute drive away.

This is a perfect location near Ojai...quiet, beautiful place, and just a few minutes from the very laid-back Meiners Oaks. We loved the peaceful backyard and the simple, elegant decor. Alison was super-helpful when there was a problem with the bikes, and arranged everything for us...we loved riding around town, and were grateful for her quick response. A wonderful vacation, and we'd come back again in a flash!

My two kids and I all loved staying at Alison’s house. The house itself is small, with one bedroom, but feels very open with access to the outside from all rooms. The interior is tastefully designed to detail, everything was sparkly clean, and Alison made us feel so welcome. She is a wonderful host. We loved the mountain view all around us and enjoyed hanging out in the patio, day and night. It was great to be able to use the bicycles for short rides to the local market and restaurants. And, the Ojai trolley stops basically across the street for an easy and fun ride into town. All in all, this was definitely one of our best experiences using Airbnb, and I hope to return next time I visit the area.

Alison’s place is truly fantastic. The freshly renovated cottage was spotless and even nicer than the photos! Flooded with sunlight and surrounded by a cozy but gorgeous patio filled with lavender and succulents plants. I’ve never seen so many hummingbirds in my life! Her place is perfect for one or two people but we (family of three) still stayed comfortably thanks to the super comfy new beds. Alison has a great eye for design and nailed the Ojai vibe…loved the brass light fixtures, vintage books /art and great linen throws. The kitchen is petite but has everything you need to cook full meals, and of course, the Farmer & the Cook is a short bike ride away. The huge walk-in shower, covered in floor-to-ceiling white penny tile, is a beauty. The cottage is attached to a main house but we had total privacy. Communication was A+. Awesome stay!

Guest can text me or call me at any time if they need something. I live in Los Angeles, so I may or may not be able to welcome you in person, although I would love to meet every guest who comes to share my space! If something is urgent I am just ninety minutes away. Please do not disturb the occupant of the front house.
