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 Ojai

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.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed your time at the property and visiting with our animal friends in the neighborhood. Yes, the bird watching is special. I hope you spotted the grey horned owls who are nesting in the big palm in the front yard. Sorry about the microwave and thank you for letting us know it wasn't working. Now we'll be able to get it fixed for future guests.

Our own ranch in Ojai!

We loved it! comfy house, very quiet, pool was great and aircon appreciated in the heat.

Horses down the road and a gumtree at the gate, perfect for our Aussie foursome.

Really felt like home away from home.

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!
