Travel Blogs from Ojai
With Elephant safely delivered to the docks in Brisbane on 22 July, Jo and I flew out to London to spend six weeks with our daughter Sarah, her husband Mike and our grandchildren Erin and Conall. It was six weeks of family time, renewing our relationship with Erin and starting our relationship with three month old Conall. A week before we left London, four year old Erin started school and we watched her depart for her first day in a ...
... One of Patti's books describes them as looking like a frisbee designed by Salvador Dali! This one was about three foot across and laying on it's side. Which is what they do. We missed hitting it by inches. They can get to be 10 feet and weigh 3000 pounds or more. We had never seen one before so it was a very exciting thing to see!
Once around Point Conception the air and water temp are supposed to rise dramatically and sunshine ...
... but from where Caroline & I were sitting it just looked like two grown men fighting over a pink ball!!! After a lovely ya we went for an Italian and then onto the Palace (a Cajun style restaurant) for desserts. The weekend was great & as you can probably tell it was pretty much a weekend that revolved around good food, good drink and great company! On Monday morning it was time to hit the road again and head to LA...till then! ...
... and down the promenade, a homeless man who asked us for some socks (we obliged) the list goes on. And on. And on. We saw the guys on the outdoor gym, all showy offy they were, and watched some cool dudes skateboarding on the half pipey thingy skatey park. I don't know, whatever you call them. We had a 'jumbo' hotdog, which was about as big as my little toe. Ok so it wasn't, it was about as big as something that isn't very jumbo. Having seen what we wanted to, ...
... of the fin-shaped benches, watching the peacefulness of this place while the surf crashes against the walls.
But also walking through the streets of the town is worthwhile. Santa Barbara has a very Mediterranean flair, so you might forget where you actually are. It sure has its nickname for all the right reasons.
And it certainly makes it difficult to leave.

Historical Traveler Reviews Su Nido Inn (Your Nest In Ojai)
A perfect little nest
If you're looking for the perfect little place to rest, relax and rejuvenate Su Nido is it. First class room, plenty of space, great attention to detail - my Cardinal Suite offered all of it and much more. The bathroom was first rate and on par with any $500 spa hotel. Soft luxurious towels, the perfect spa robe, excellent bath products, and a quality hair dryer! Two LCD TVs with DVD players, sound machine in the bedroom, huge king bed with excellent linens. Su Nido - thank you for making my 50th so memorable!
Our wedding 'Nest' ... a nest to return to!
The Su Nido was truly the perfect place to stay before and after our wedding (July 14th, 2006), a mear 6 weeks after the opening. We even stayed an extra day! Michael, Su Nido's Inn Keeper, while being very attentive was also great with the local information on the "hot spots" and his recommendations for the eateries was right on target. Having a pleasent and friendly person to come in contact with at the end of the day or first thing in the morning was truly a pleasure. Our room was the Robin's Nest. It was truly a delightful place to stay and hide away when we wanted to escape. The room's amenities were well thought out and the attention to detail was impecable. We will definately return to the "nest" to share and enjoy the peace and quiet while celebrating many years to come with Michael and the staff.
Thank you so much for a lovely time.

Su Nido splendido
Su Nido Inn is a brand new inn in the heart of Ojai. It's not cheap but it's worth every dime. For $1100 I had my own beautiful room with the most luxurious bed/linens and my girls (ages 18 and 21) had a magnificent suite with personal outdoor hot tub. Both rooms had incredible bathrooms. Both children commented that it was more of a couples destination. Included in the $1100 price for 2 nights was 2 1/2 spa services at The Day Spa in Ojai which included exfoliation and massage for each of my daughters as part of their package and spa services including exfoliation, massage and facial for me for an extra $250. The girls each also received a Motton Brown gift pack valued at $100. The spa was nice but the hotel was great. Ojai is a very laid back mountain town 25 miles east of Ventura which is easily accessed and has some great restaurants. The two nights there were enough, the town is a little touristy but if you go, Su Nido is the place to stay.
Amazing place in Ojai!
My husband and I stayed at Su Nido Inn on July 12, 13 and 14, to relax after a 7 days vacation in Maui with our three kids and grandmother!
The Innkeeper was very helpful and very accommodating, the property is outstanding: luxury, charm, old world feel, quiet, extremely beautiful, very clean!
We stayed at the Cardinal Suite, living room with fireplace, private balcony, TV, dinning table, kitchenette with refrigerator, microwave, sink dinnerware, glasses, refreshments (free!), tea, coffee, gorgeous bathroom with bathtub, shower, vanity, bathrobes and sleepers, and a very quiet and relaxing bedroom with a very comfortable bed, crisp white cotton lines, down comforter, TV.
They have DVD players and DVD you can rent free.
I loved the architecture, Spanish hacienda style , with the rooms wrapped around an amazing private courtyard with olive trees, fountain, wrought iron bistro sets, umbrellas and big pots with beautiful flowers.
I would recommend Azu for lunch and dinner, great tapas.
I strongly recommend the Su Nido Inn to anybody who is trying to relax and renew in a beautiful, luxurious place, I will definitely go back there soon!
Loved our weekend in Ojai at the Su Nido
This past weekend my husband and I went to Ojai to celebrate a friend's 50th birthday. We had the pleasure of staying 2 evenings at the Su Nido Inn in the Cardinal Suite. We were greeted Saturday afternoon by a lovely lady named Sheri who welcomed us to Ojai and showed us to our suite. She gave us a wonderful dining recommendation - Suzanne's for lunch and had such a pleasant way about her that you felt like this was your home.
Our suite was tastefully decorated, quaint, clean and very cozy. :)
The Inn is walking distance to DT Ojai which is such a luxury of having restaurants and shopping at your fingertips.
I highly recommend checking out Su Nido Inn on your next visit to Ojai.
I was lucky enough to find The Su Nido Suites referenced in another hotel review . I booked a gorgeous room as the Ojai Oaks Spa was full. I spent the day at the Spa and my evenings at the Su Nido. The staff was friendly and efficient and since it was only 6 weeks new they were having an open house for the community one evening and I was able to tour all the suites. They are richly appointed with earthy colors, hand made tile mosaics and all of the best of everything. Even the coffee service and italian mugs were charming. The beds were perfect to my taste and the courtyard and fountain ended my evenings peacefully. I can't wait to go back. My new home away from etc... A secret I almost don't want to share. Enjoy.
Ojai's suite spot
This small new all-suite hotel is the place to stay for a great weekend or a memorable midweek getaway in Ojai. We stayed in the Condor suite and were delighted with the spacious high ceiling living room as well as the large bedroom and bath (with shower and tub). There was a large private deck off the living room where we could lounge and view the mountains. The kitchen made it easy to prepare snacks. We also appreciated the flat screen TVs in the living room and bedroom (the latter with a built-in DVD player). And the innkeeper has a number of newer DVDs to borrow.
Su Nido is located within short walking distance of the center of town so shopping is easy. There are also a number of restaurants that you can walk to. We enjoyed dinner one night at the Auberge in Ojai.
Charming Boutique Inn
My wife and I stayed at Su Nido over the 4th of July weekend. It's brand new and beautifully appointed with a fusion of Mission Style architecture and modern conveniences and luxury. The rooms are well sized and full of high end amenities, like the flat panel TV with DVD player, the pillow top queen bed with a fluffy white comforter and smooth sheets, the eurostyle one cup coffee maker or the fancy bath and shower soaps and lotions. We stayed in the "Condor" suite. It had a large balcony through french doors off the sitting room which overlooked the property. In the morning I enjoyed my euro coffee from the balcony while watching the sun rise.
It's really just a block or two from downtown, which made walking to the main avenue to watch the parade a snap. We also walked to dinner.
The Inn keeper was very friendly and helpful too.
Will definitely be back.
Tried to stay there but it was full. Stayed at sister hotel and it was Great!
We tried to stay at the Best Western Casa Ojai but they were full.
They referred us to their new sister hotel "Su Nido Inn" and we stayed there June 2 thru the 5th.
The property is beautiful, and in a great location. We walked downtown every day.
Our room was big, large bathroom had great art. Well worth the money
It was a great stay.
