TestimonialsIn the words of my daughter "OMG"

I like to be honest and a bit blunt-it is who I am. Although the photos and reviews seemed positive I was a bit nervous about renting a house where on the same property the owners lived. I was worried about if there would be enough privacy, if they would be around, if it would comfortable. We always rent houses but never in this situation. Well let me just say if I could have stayed there forever I would have stayed. Not only is the property the most beautiful place I have ever been I loved Eva, Marcus and their daughter. They were kind and accommodating and made it clear if we wanted privacy they would leave us alone. However I just feel in love with them, they have an incredible peace and compassion about them, there was nothing they would not do for us and there were so many special touches in the bungalow it was clear that they take their hosting very seriously. The property was like heaven on earth. Utopia was the word that came to mind. I love that Eva and Marcus appreciate the land and tend to it with such care. It is simply breath taking. We took so many photos and we have them all over our house and even as computer wallpaper....makes me smile every time I look at them. On top of all of this I had the most AMAZING massage - if I could fly back weekly for them I would. My whole family is in a hurry to get back there, we are telling everyone about this place. I hope Eva and Marcus keep this place as I plan many more visits and hope to make it back this year. If you are looking for a romantic get away - this is the ideal location...you will not find better anywhere. And the town of Ojai was just perfect with great food, great shops and so many activities! We did go to Santa Barbara and LA which were not bad drives but if it were up to me I would have stayed on the property the whole trip.

Our week end at the Secret Garden Suite was so magical. Lovingly & originally decorated & the bed was fun! I had the best massage of my life with Eva and returned for a photo shoot with my grand daughter. I cannot tell you how great a photographer she is! It all is magical, truly. The grounds are beautiful, peaceful and private. We can't wait to return.

We spent some very pleasant days in July 2009 at the Garden Secret Suit and would like to thank Eva and Marc for such a nice time! We have nothing but praise for the care and dedication with which Eva took care. Her massages were really wonderful. We highly recommend that place. You won`t be disappointed. Albert and Sabrina
