About the property

3 Bedrooms 2 Bathrooms Sleeps 6

The Property

Our welcoming 3 bedroom, 2 bath Spanish-style Ranch House is surrounded by landscaped, drought resistant gardens and large palm trees. The 2+ acre property offers tranquil, scenic outdoor spaces as well as comfortable, laid back interiors. Relax by the pool and marvel at the mountain views, or hang out under the vine-shaded pergola. Inside, the house boasts high ceilings, hardwood or Spanish tile floors and carpeted bedrooms. The open, fully equipped kitchen, leading to an adjoining terrace, provides a happy, inviting environment for cooking, eating and entertaining. The house comfortably sleeps 6 (two queen size beds and two twins) and comes equipped with laundry facilities, HD satellite TV and high-speed wireless internet.

Guests may freely enjoy the entire house, the pool and surrounding grounds. On occasion, in order to maintain the property, the owner or a caretaker may occupy a small trailer set discreetly away from the main house to ensure privacy for all.

Upper Ojai

Beautiful Upper Ojai is famous for its hiking and mountain biking trails and for tree-shaded country roads leading to spectacular views, especially of the sun setting against the Topatopa Mountains. From here, you can visit Los Padres National Forest, The Ojai Foundation Sanctuary and St. Thomas Aquinas College. An easy ten-minute drive brings you to downtown Ojai in one direction or to vibrant Santa Paula in the other. So you can easily enjoy all that the Ojai Valley has to offer.

Downtown Ojai

Enjoy specialty shops, a wide range of restaurants, and local galleries and spas. A friendly, ever-popular farmers’ market on Sunday mornings offers local, home-grown fruit, vegetables, goodies and entertainment. There is golf, wine-tasting, hiking….and much, much more.

About Benjamin Gilbert

My wife and I spend our time between Ojai and LA. We love our getaways to Ojai and use our time there to relax and recharge. We love the trail that starts at the top of Sisar Road (Less than five minutes away). Sipping wine and craft beers at the Ojai Beverage Company or grabbing pasta and pizza from Boccali's.

Benjamin Gilbert purchased this house in 2015

Why Benjamin Gilbert chose Central Coast California

We fell in love with Ojai after a weekend visit. We stayed in a VRBO property and the owner predicted we would one day buy a house in the Ojai Valley....She was right. One year later, we did.

A lovely, quiet property on a rural road.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time in this house. It is attractively furnished, filled with light, views to the West, and altogether welcoming. The owner was exceptionally helpful with the questions we had.

We hope to return.

A little peace of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place. The openness of the rooms and outdoor space was amazing. Loved laying in the sun and floating in the pool. The one bedroom had a very soft luxurious bed which I loved. The master had a hard bed which worked great for my sisters. Linens were very nice. Most of our time was spent outside on the patio which had a great sofa to relax on. Loved the large dinning room table. We saw a large umbrella which I think once set up by the pool will be a great hang out place. Gets hot by the pool. Views were beautiful. Very private and great space for dog to run around. A very magical place which I hope to return to very soon. Thanks Benjamin

Owner's Response: Thanks Maya. We're always happy when we meet our guests expectations. It sounds like you enjoyed many of the same things I do at the property (floating in the pool especially). You're right about the umbrella. I wanted to add more shade by the pool. Sorry it wasn't built for your stay. It will be waiting for you next time!

Peaceful retreat in Upper Ojai

  • 5 of 5

We (4 adults & 2 kids) had a lovely time here - great location in Upper Ojai, peaceful, with nice views & very private. About 10 minutes outside downtown Ojai. The house was stocked with everything we needed, it is a little worn, but that added to the charm & everything worked as expected. Pool was refreshing. Communication with the host was easy. We'll be back!

This was a great choice for our family. It had a beautiful setting, pool and spotless throughout.

  • 5 of 5

We were in Ojai for our son's wedding. We had never been to this part of California and were not sure what to expect. Before renting, my correspondence with Mr. Gilbert was professional and timely. He answered all my questions. Once arriving at the location, we were thrilled with the accommodations and the setting of the home. The home was spotless and all 5 of us were very comfortable there.

Before arriving, Mr. Gilbert was in touch with additional information as well as keeping in touch throughout our stay. He made himself available and that was very helpful.

We thoroughly enjoyed the pool and the setting it provided. Since the entire wedding was only 11 people, the other 6 members of the family were welcomed to come over and enjoy the pool.

I would recommend this property to anyone visiting Ojai, either for the first time or a returning visitor.

Amazing piece of property!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I loved staying at this place in Upper Ojai. Easy drive or cab or Uber down to town, but never a need to. Great clean Pool. Grill next to picnic table and couch on the patio. Vaulted ceilings in family room and master bedroom. Large kitchen. Amazing views of the hills all around. Very private.

Cannot recommend it more. Definitely want to come back with another couple or two.
