The space

I live in a quiet setting in Ojai Valley, called Meiners Oaks, Walking distance (2.3 miles) from Ojai City Center or catch the Ojai Trolley .

The Japan Room (queensize bed ) sleeps 2 . I practice Feng Shui, and most will feel the peaceful and positive energy that comes with the proper choice of light, color and placement of furniture.

Complimentary coffee, tea are available at no additional cost.

Guests have access to their rooms, the living areas and the front and back gardens. Kitchen is available for food storage, However guest cooking is not allowed.


Also a favorite for hikers, is the nearby "riverbottom", a very large and normally "dry" riverbed which offers interesting and invigorating hiking.

Information regarding places to go in Ojai and Ojai weekly events is provided in each room.


Also nearby are several wineries, offering daily wine tasting.

I love meeting new people and I interact with my guests as much as they desire that contact. I am careful to respect guests privacy.

I love the small town feel of Meiners Oaks, and the close proximity of Ojai Centers. The neighborhood is safe and there are many beautiful areas to go for walks. Meiners Oaks has begun to establish our own small "downtown" located on El Roblar, which is only one block away from my home. On El Roblar you will find several wonderful restaurants including Italian (Papa Lennon's) Organic Vegetarian (Farmer and the Cook) Mexican and the upscale restaurant "The Ranchhouse". In addition, we are located walking distance from the Ojai Retreat which regularly offers spiritual workshops and World Music concerts.

You can easily access Ojai Valley using the Ojai Trolley which stops nearby on El Roblar, or if you want to venture further you can take the Ventura county public bus to travel into other areas of Ventura County.

Also nearby are several wineries, offering daily wine tasting.

Guest access

Guests have access to their bedrooms, shared bathroom, gardens in front and back and living areas. Kitchen may be used for storing personal food items. Wireless internet is also available at no extra charge.

Interaction with guests

I love meeting new people and hearing about their lives and their homes. I am as available as much as my guests wish to interact with me, but I am also very respectful of their privacy and/or need for solitutude.

At times I may need to travel out of town for business. When that happens I will provide advance notice and will provide the number of my house manager for any questions or needs you may have.

Other things to note

I have soft water in all areas of my home and reverse osmosis water for drinking. My home is very "hypo-allergenic" with wood and tile floors, cotton bedding and organic/natural soaps. Homes are cleaned with natural products.

Chaarenne was extremely friendly, and gave us some awesome recommendations for our weekend trip to Ojai. Her house was very clean, and it isn't too far from the Ojai town center. Also, her dog is so cute.

Chaarenne was an excellent host and we had a relaxing stay at her house. We love her dog Buddy too. Chaarenne made delicious muffins in the morning and was truly a delight to chat with. The room we stayed in has Japanese decor and very calming / peaceful natural lighting. She had towels laid out for each of us and even provided handmade lavender soap from a local soapmaker. The house and property overall has a very welcoming energy both inside and out. I recommend staying at Chaarenne's

Chaarenne is a lovely person and is full of helpful local information one may not know about, as a visitor. She is very talented and well traveled. For the home, you get the feel for an established neighborhood, lovely home decor reflecting some of her travels, and a comfortable bed for sure. She has lots of recommendations based on your own personal interests. We also enjoyed the effort she's put into her yard, very tranquil and colorful. We'll be back! Thank you.

Chaarenne's place is a wonderfully peaceful, clean and comfortable place. Best of all Chaarenne is a really wonderful hostess and provides a very pleasant place to stay in Ojai. I highly recommend her place to anyone needing a room in Ojai. It was our first airbnb experience and I really enjoyed it!

My husband and I very much enjoyed our stay at Chaarenne's. The room is comfortable, spacious and super quiet. She provided us breakfast in the morning that was perfect; coffee, orange juice, bagels with cream cheese and her delicious homemade apricot jam. Highly recommend her place!

Chaarenne User Profile

I am a "Renaissance Woman" meaning I enjoy various type of professions and hobbies, strongly tied into the "arts". I am a songer/songwriter of the pop-folk genre and my songs can be heard on "Women of Substance" internet radio, as well as found on ITunes, Amazon, Spotify and CDBaby. I am also a licensed clinical social worker and licensed addictions specialist and operate a small private practice helping others with their emotional and relationship issues and struggles.

I embrace all spiritual paths and follow the yoga philosophy that there is "One Truth but Many Paths". I am a licensed Integral Yoga teacher and a teacher of Insight Meditation. I recently completed an in-home studio, and often teach classes there (when I am in town). The classes are available for guests for $10 each.

I am a peaceful person, with just a touch of mischief in my soul! I love to laugh and enjoy hearing others stories.

Family is very important to me and I am the proud mother of 3 children, 3 grandchildren and 3 great grand children! soon to be, 2 great-grandchildren!
I recently married a wonderful, spiritual man who is the love of my life! Raymond is a social scientist and an author, and we plan to combine our work with occassional presentations of his work and new book "The Lens of Love" which is a study of the energetic resonance of "love" and how that works in our world through holographic distribution.

We are vegetarian, so our kitchen is not accessible to guests other than the storing of food in the refrigerator, or for making salads or sandwiches.

I have very eclectic tastes, and enjoy all types of music, many different art forms, and a variety of books, movies and TV programs.

As a hostess your comfort and privacy are important to me. Blame that on my southern upbringing (Beaumont, Texas). I will love to visit with you, if you like and will be as accessible as you would like for me to be.

When you enter my home, you will see a beautiful stained glass window that was taken from a church in Rhode Island built in1685. There is a scripture on the bottom which reads "Their Works Do Follow Them". This is my motto. I believe our actions speak louder than our words and I try to live my life in such a way as to have no regrets regarding my actions. In yoga, one of the 8 paths to enlightenment is "Karma Yoga". Karma Yoga is "Selfless Service". The swami's will tell you that if you practice perfect Karma Yoga, you will never have to do anything else - no meditation, no asanas, no vegetarianism, no spiritual reading. Practicing Karma Yoga is believed to be what we are here for. You may be familiar with this in a different form, such as the "Golden Rule" - do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Whether we donate our time or earn lots of money, as long as our actions are coming from the heart it is all good!
So welcome to my home - I hope your stay in our beautiful valley is a wonderful one!
