Ojai Designer Cottage

Chic lush decor, conveniently located, close to activities, yet private

MONTHLY RENTAL TO ADULTS ONLY. Located in the center of the bucolic village of Ojai,, is this 2 bedroom, one bath cottage; an exquisitely appointed home with particular attention paid to detail. Furnishings are tasteful; for a discerning guest the experience will be a visual joy, every room perfectly done and fitting to the space.

The back patio area, totally enclosed, offers an outdoor dining table that seats 6, and the sound of the fountain and beauty of the landscape creates a feeling of total tranquility.

The kitchen is fully equipped, with the exception of a microwave and dishwasher. The house is comfortably heated and air conditioned. There is WiFi and Direct TV basic cable.

Both bedrooms have Queen sized beds, and generous closet and dresser space.

Directly across the street is Libbey Park, the central historic park of Ojai, and out the front door you are just a short walk from the bike path which takes you along a scenic route for miles. There are 5 restaurants within less than a block, 4 coffee houses and 2 wineries within a mile, and all the exciting retail shops that Ojai is famous for. The retail stores and galleries in Ojai are all owner-run, and you won’t find the chain store shopping that exists elsewhere. If you choose to bicycle around town rather than drive, you will find a bike rental shop within a block.

Since the home is so finely decorated we are limiting the rental to ADULTS ONLY, 30 yrs +, with a maximum of 4 people, NO PETS WHATSOEVER, NO SMOKING, no illegal drugs.

About the Owners:

We love interior decor and have traveled extensively throughout Europe, Asia, South America and parts of Africa. During our travels we have collected antique pieces from different countries and used them to accent each room in our cottage. As residents of Ojai, and part of the downtown retail community, we have watched Ojai evolve beautifully into the artful, spiritual village it is today. The cottage was once used as the Krishnamurti bookstore, and to this day has a calming presence within. We work hard as activists within our town to keep the unique individuality that makes Ojai a special place to visit and live.

 

What makes this Cottage Unique

Walk out the front door, and you see across the street, historic Libbey Park, and the Libbey Bowl, where summer concerts are held on Wednesday evenings. If you turn to the right, in less than a block you will be on the walking path which goes for miles. If you turn to the left, you will be a half block from the downtown arcade which contains many of the shops, restaurants and galleries. Exactly one block away on Ojai Avenue (the main street), you can join the Oaks at Ojai as a day spa guest and take all their fitness classes.

In the evening, you'll find two wine tasting rooms: The Ojai Vineyard is a block away, and Casa Barranca is a half block away. Both produce fine local wines, and Casa Barranca features organic wines. Or, you can sit on the Cottage’s front porch and enjoy the pink sunset moments, while sipping your favorite beverage.

The Art Center is just across the park and has a running play many months during the year, and various gallery showings. Ojai is famous for festivals and if you look up the Ojai Chamber of Commerce or Ojai Music Festival calendar, you may find one that matches your interest perfectly.
