This 20' yurt sits on a hilltop overlooking the Oak-covered hills and orchards of Rancho La Vista. The yurt, it's fenced yard and deck offer complete privacy for stargazing, relaxing and recharging. Just two miles from downtown Ojai, it's the perfect escape! This charming, private yurt is nicely furnished with a comfortable queen size bed and high-quality linens and pillows. There is also a foldout couch for a child, or third adult.

The simple kitchen is set up to make you feel at home with a small refrigerator and prep sink and an electric tea pot for for coffee or tea. An outside grill with a side burner offers additional cooking opportunities. The host provides a selection of teas and fresh ground coffee and a basket of seasonal fruits/vegetables from our organic orchard and gardens.

This 20' Pacific Yurt is furnished for your comfort and enjoyment. After shopping at the Ojai Farmer's market on Sunday morning, prepare a local, organic meal and dine al fresco on the private deck overlooking a beautiful mountain. Take a stroll along the country road or take on one of the many beautiful hiking trails Ojai has to offer. Upon your return, enjoy a shower in the private bathhouse. End your day relaxing around the outdoor fire pit.

The yurt is ideal for singles and couples --or a special getaway for friends! Those uncomfortable with the sounds of farm animals (horses, chickens, dogs & goats) or frightened by the sounds of wild animals (coyotes, owls, hawks) may prefer a more urban location.

The yurt is situated on a private, fenced section of our three-acre hilltop. The owner's home is on the property as well, at the opposite end. There is parking for one car adjacent to the yurt. Entrance is through a private gate on the left.

We are available by cell phone should you have any questions about Ojai or are in need of any assistance. The yurt will be ready for your arrival and appointed with everything needed for a wonderful Ojai retreat.

Our hilltop property is located just two miles from town. The famous Ojai bike path is 1/2 mile from our driveway, allowing an easy cycle into downtown Ojai, or Meiner's Oaks. There are also many wonderful hiking trails within minutes of the site. The beaches of Ventura are within a twenty-minute drive, and a day trip in Santa Barbara is just a 45-minutes away.

The new bath house is appointed with a toilet and an on-demand hot water shower.

We strive to make this property as earth-friendly as possible by using environmentally safe dish soap, shampoo and hand soap, by providing recycled paper products and using propane when possible and low-wattage light bulbs.

It is important to note that Ojai has warm summers and cool winters. There is a evaporative cooling unit in the yurt, but most guests choose to be out and about during the heat of the day. The yurt has four windows and two doors to allow the breeze to flow through in the summer. Ojai cools nicely in the evenings. During the months of Dec, Jan, Feb, & March, the temperature at night can fall below 40 degrees. Although there is a heater in the yurt, it can be chilly by morning, so we recommend having some warmer clothing available during these cooler months. We provide extra blankets for the bed during this time also.


There are a few unique features to the yurt that we would like you to be aware of.

*Please use caution if moving the velcro/vinyl window coverings; they scratch easily.

*The toilet drains to our septic system, which is finicky. Please only flush toilet paper and use the trash bin in the bathroom as needed. We will clean the bathroom area every second or third day of your stay.

*The kitchen prep sink and the shower drain to a grey water system that waters our orchard. Please use only the soap that is provided when washing dishes or showering.

*Use extreme caution with the BBQ and firepit. Be sure to turn off the BBQ and/or stovetop after use. Please do not move the firepit to another location--it is currently in the safest spot.

*No candles or incense burning in the yurt

*Please remove your shoes

*Enjoy the privacy of your yard, but feel free to visit the goats and chickens and to pick some fruit if you would like.

*There is no wifi to the yurt (intentionally), but if you need a quick link, walk towards the raised bed garden and the wifi will be available.

This is a very special place located in the hills of Ojai. The yurt was immaculate and featured lovely amenities. Krista was an outstanding host and made us feel so comfortable. Simply a perfect getaway that we will remember for years to come.

Krista is an amazing host who made us feel right at home. She gave us a quick tour of her property and was kind enough to leave filtered water and fresh squeezed orange juice from her garden in the fridge. The yurt is tucked away at the top of a hill, it’s cozy, very clean and private. We really enjoyed our stay here, this place is beautiful. Downtown is just a short drive away were we enjoyed lunch at “The Farmer in the cook” while picking up a few things for dinner. We took full advantage of the grill and relax by the fire pit. I can’t recommend this place enough, it’s the perfect little get away to disconnect and relax.
