This was the 4th time staying at this home. I can’t say enough good things about the property. From the moment you walk through the front door, you immediately feel at peace. I was greeted with a handwritten note and fresh cut flowers from the owner, Mimi. The home is spotless. The kitchen is well equipped. The bathrooms had all natural bar soap, lotion, body wash, shampoo, conditioner, and fresh cut flowers. The grove in the back is huge. Rows and rows of avocado and pixie trees. We had fresh orange juice in the morning. I love grapefruit, so I also had fresh grapefruit juice. We brought home 6 avocados and I can’t wait to make guacamole!! Be sure to eat at Boccali’s in the east end of town. They have the best Italian food and the strawberry shortcake is a MUST!! Thank you Mimi for a wonderful stay. We’ll be back in a few months. 😊

My husband, daughter and I just stayed at Mimi's place and it was exactly what we hoped for and more. The guest house is beautifully situated on a tangerine and avocado orchard so the backyard leads out to the trees and pathways. It was wonderful every morning to get up and go outside, pick fruit for juice or to eat and walk up to see Buttercup the cow. Mimi let my daughter pick the eggs from the chickens and gave us fresh milk and yogurt to eat which was delicious. We really enjoyed hiking down to the river and stargazing at night. The guest house is close to town, much bigger than we expected, lovingly decorated and replete with games for kids/adults of all ages. I would highly recommend it to anyone, in fact already have to some of my friends, as the beauty of the grounds will definitely rejuvenate you...if not make you sad to leave. All I can say is enjoy this special place. We hope to be back.

This was a nice property with incredibly nice hosts. The guesthouse is a classic older home in its layout and interior architecture (think 1920s) with recent interior paint and modern furnishings and linens. It is very private, in the middle of an orchard with a lovely backyard space with a table for relaxing, enjoying the sunset, or for throwing a ball around. Our host introduced us to the cows and chickens which we visited daily. The property also has a path to a gate that is a few blocks from a hiking trail. Our kids enjoyed riding bikes between the orchards and we enjoyed sitting out and listening to the birds in the early morning, and relaxing again our back at sunset.

We had a wonderful stay at Mimi's guesthouse! The house is cozy, convenient to Ojai and hiking, and cute; but the real highlights were Mimi's hospitality and the setting. We especially enjoyed breakfasts of homemade yogurt, farm eggs, and fresh pressed orange juice while sitting on the back patio overlooking orange and avocado groves. This place is a gem!

Just a really really nice trip. It was very relaxing and that is hard as we have 3 kids (4 and under). Mimi was amazing and very helpful and the kids loved meeting the animals. The house was set up great and we really enjoyed it!

My family and friends loved this property. We ate oranges and grapefruit from the trees every day and our host, Mimi provided us with fresh yogurt, milk and eggs from the cows and chickens. Mimi went above and beyond to make us feel at home and to help us enjoy the property. She also made sure to add little touches like fresh flowers in every room and bringing food for the kids to feed the animals every day. We will definitly be back.

I have a slight fear if I write about how amazing our stay was, we will no longer be able to find an open date here again! This rental house and its wonderful owners completely provided the low-key escape we needed during this pandemic life. Our family of 4 referred to this stay as our "fruit-cation." This cute, nicely sized guest house lives up to the photos and more. Really, every morning I looked out to the view of the orchard and mountains, I was stunned by the beauty all over again. If you are familiar with vintage Ojai Pixie fruit labels: this place is basically sitting in one of those illustrations- but IRL. Mimi and her family were incredibly generous and welcoming. Being allowed to pick the navel oranges and grapefruit around the house made for a fun activity and daily delicious breakfasts. Their farm animals (cows, chickens, and donkeys on our visit) are adorable and provided another level to the feeling that we had escaped into another life for a few days. Morning and sunset walks around the property should not be missed. We did the walk from the property to the Ventura River Preserve and had a nice hike on the trails there around and along the water. The kitchen was well stocked with cookware, dishes, and even some spices and teas. There's an awesome commercial grade (to us), easy to use, manual juicer. This was the first building, besides our home, we have slept in since the Pandemic started. Everything felt very safe and well-cleaned Covid-wise. Interactions with the owners were as minimal as we wanted or needed. But again, super nice folks, so it is a pleasure to chat with them..

Our family had the perfect stay at Mimi's guesthouse in Ojai this past weekend. The grounds are just magical - plenty of room to spread out, pick oranges for fresh-squeezed OJ, see the cows and generally just enjoy the expansive views of mountains beyond. The highlight for our girls was when Mimi introduced them to the chickens and helped my oldest milk Buttercup, the cow on property. Their eyes were so wide! The guesthouse itself is perfectly appointed with everything you would hope - comfy beds, bedding and towels, all major household appliances - as well as many thoughtful details (hardcover books from recent bestseller lists, family games and a juicer). Mimi has done a great job with the overall decor! We felt like we were able to exhale this weekend and are grateful to Mimi and her family for creating this space for us to get away.

We had the best time staying at Mimi's place in Ojai. The home was more than spacious for our family, very clean and new furniture with such nice touches such as fresh flowers and fresh eggs from her chickens. Mimi showed us around and the kids loved being able to roam the property visiting the cows and going through the bike track. We had such a great time and Mimi was a terrific host. We can't wait to visit again!
