15 Amazing Airbnb Vacation Rentals In Ojai, California - Updated 2022


Lying about an hour and a half northwest of Los Angeles is Ojai, a quiet city before Los Padres National Forest. A pleasant village in the heart of a valley that offers numerous hiking and trekking spots and so many thrilling and/or relaxing things to do, Ojai has long been known to be a popular retreat for both the spiritual and artistic. Aside from art galleries and New Age lifestyles, perhaps the boldest testament to Ojai’s popularity lies in the fact that it was also the home and death place of popular philosopher and writer Jiddu Krishnamurti. Its location at the base of the Topatopa mountains also brings about stunning sunsets, fondly known among locals as Ojai’s ‘Pink Moment’.
