Perks for the Parents

Retreat to this recently renovated 1950's ranch-style home in Ojai, California, with stunning mountain views, a kidney-shaped pool and hot tub. It sleeps 6 + 1. This home is perfect for parents looking to get back to nature and take a peaceful, tranquil vacation. Outdoor terraces and seating areas are scattered amongst mature oak, orange, avocado and lemon trees and there’s a spacious yard for roaming. It’s a super quiet neighborhood so you can truly relax away from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

Why Kids Love it

This is a great home for kids of all ages, with lots of toys and good books for children to enjoy during their stay. The hot tub section of the pool is ideal as a shallow baby pool, and the hosts provide plenty of pool floats and toys. Take the kids around the gardens where they can pick oranges from the orchard and squeeze their own juice for breakfast. It’s a fantastic area for exploring the great outdoors - ask the hosts about family-friendly walks nearby. For family days out, it’s 20 minutes’ drive to Casitas Water Park, half an hour to sandy beaches and 45 minutes from Santa Barbara Zoo.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 3 nights on weekends; 2 nights on weekdays. Safety notes: the pool is gated and has an alarm. The pool deck has a shading pergola over 2 lounge spaces for keeping kids out of the sun. The East End neighborhood is sublimely quiet and this is a quiet rental - we ask that you have no guests additional to those on the booking, no more than 3 cars on site and no parties. Car rental is recommended.

About the Location

The house is located in Ojai, California. It’s an easy 1.5 hour drive up the Pacific Coast Highway from Los Angeles and LAX airport, or 40 minutes from Santa Barbara. Ojai is a charming small town in a serene valley full of orange orchards - idyllic for family life. Ojai's East End is coveted for its semi-rural serenity and fantastic mountain views. Working citrus ranches mix with architectural gems and artistic cottages. There are lots of wonderful hiking trails nearby yet it’s only 5 minutes’ drive from downtown, where there’s a choice of green parks and a golf course.

Accommodation Details

The property has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, all set over 1 floor. It’s centered around a kid-proof living-kitchen-dining space which opens to both the front and back terraces, yard and pool. The large primary bedroom has its own terrace opening to the backyard, as well as a sofa, crib, a kingsize bed and a spacious bathroom with separate bathtub and shower. At the other end of the house, 2 bedrooms share a bathroom and hallway; 1 has a queensize bed, sofa and stunning orchard views, while the cozier kids room has 2 single beds. Outside, the 1-acre property boasts fruit trees and mountain views. Mature orange, avocado and lemon orchards fruit year-round, with many other seasonal fruit trees. Chairs and boulders are scattered throughout for relaxing outdoors. The front terrace has a large dining table, a lounge area, a bench and some kids rocking chairs. There is also a smaller dining table under an oak tree in the side yard.

Style Notes

Minimal and modern. This beautiful 1950s ranch home has been renovated in 2021 with an artisan builder, to create a contemporary open plan space with wood vaulted ceilings, a chefs kitchen and lots of large sliding doors and windows to connect to the nature that surrounds the property. Unique plastered floors and modern furnishings are perfect for families, and the hosts have equipped the house with all their favorite amenities including Avocado mattresses, organic Coyuchi linens, Turkish towels for the pool and handmade ceramic dishes. We love the wooden kitchen cabinetry, the sleek fireplace in the living area and the minimalist bedroom palette.
