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.
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.
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.
Kind, tidy, responsible!
