Kelley is always open to guest joining her on one of her hikes as this is one of her favorite ways of relaxing and exercising. Gillian is a local realtor and originally from Ireland. She enjoys Ojai with all its splendor and appreciates the intimacy of a quaint friendly town. Kelley and Gillian love the great out door, living a healthy lifestyle, travelling and creating vision for a fun and abundant big life together.

Gillian & Kelley purchased this Apartment in 2012
Why Gillian & Kelley chose Oak View
The lake side of Ojai is a beautiful location. We live in a safe neighborhood with neighbors we enjoy. People are friendly and care about one another. We are located along the banks of the Ojai river preserve (Seasonal river flow) which brings a lovely breeze up from the ocean. 4.1 miles to the Ojai Arcade and downtown area. If the coast and cooler weather interests you, take a quick drive or bike ride 11 miles to Ventura beaches, 18 miles to Carpinteria beaches and 22 miles to Santa Barbara. All locations are this side of Ojai and easily accessible from this part of town. You can walk 1.2 miles to Old Baldwin Rd Trail head. 2.3 miles to Lake Casitas for water sports, fishing, hiking, and dining. Enjoy dining in the famous "Farmer and the Cook" or the "Ranch House' in Meiners Oaks which is only 2 miles away. We love this neighborhood and enjoy the tranquility and escape of the downtown lights which opens a world of its own kind of illumination with an abundance of twinkling stars in the darkness of the evening sky.

Great Quiet getaway.
Nice quiet spot, enjoyed our stay.
Gillian and Kelly are great host . The property is clean and well maintained. Both are very accommodating and very outgoing and friendly. Thanks again for a great stay.
Very nice owners and facility. I did not expect it to be down a hallway and part of the house. Very thin walls. No heat control. You are dependent on the main house. They did bring a space heater though.
Thank you for your review. Sorry you didn’t read the description on the site. We post it as a full disclosure as to not disappoint our guests. See below:
***We listed Brooke Nook as an "Apartment" over "studio" as it is more than a private room in a house. It is part of the footprint of the house but we have set it up so you are self contained with private entrance, 2 rooms, 1 bathroom, and private patio as we have erected a simi permanant wall, therefore guests don't have any interaction with hosts in the house. *please note you can hear main house activity.
Lovely and peaceful
It was the perfect place for me to stay for the two weeks of my training. Gillian and Kelley were so kind and helped me get over my anxiety about traveling alone. It was a lovely place to stay.
Love our stay!
Comfortable house and beds. We had fun swimming and playing the games they provided. Hosts were very friendly and helpful.
My mom and I took a vacation together and this property was phenomenal. The owners were friendly and the property was beyond what the pictures showed! Would definitely recommend staying here!
