Very good two bedrooms with many windows to see the nature outside. It is very good for those is fond of nature. It is also very good to visit Krishnamurti and see his books. Hope you will find peace in the room as well as in your mind.

Hello and thank you for taking some time to share about the retreat. We are getting lots of rain this winter, the hills are getting their beautiful green color back and the property is a vibrant green. We look forward to your next visit. Julien

A truly inspiring and graceful place, it has served its holiness and beauty in a very humble and peaceful way; it is not only about the comfort, it is a profound, unexplainable, and life-changing experience.

Pepper Tree Retreat is a great location for rest, reflection and relaxation. The rooms are comfortable and well equipped. The property is located on the hillside with great views up and down the Ojai valley.

Photos misleading. Run down. Dirty, Flies in room. Outside patio filthy. The pIctures on their website were misleading, they showed a clean attractive building and clean rooms with nice furniture. In reality the place is run down. The setting is nice.

The most perfect spot, tranquil and very well run from the initial call making the reservation, through arrival, during our stay. It was very hard to leave. Anat is lovely and well as all the other staff members that we met during our stay.

The Pepper Tree Retreat was super clean. My room had a beach cottage feeling to it. It was a quiet property and surrounded by orange groves. The breakfast had many options and was organic. The herb garden and the library were my favorite part of the trip. I watched the sunset in the herb garden most nights. I also enjoyed...

Beautifully situated on a hill with the smells of oranges, pepper corns, herbs, the Peppertree Retreat is a wonderful escape. The rooms, all different, are clean with a homey feeling (we saw 3 of them). The people are warm and welcoming.

An aura of serenity pervades the rooms, public spaces and grounds. The rooms are comfortable, good quality, and have the feeling of home. It is far enough from town to be quiet and a world apart, yet only a 5 minute drive to town. Lots of good hiking and only 25 minutes from the beach.

I felt very comfortable and it was charming and clean. I stayed there while attending a two day workshop. Breakfast is provided with a variety of healthy choices. I only wished I had more time to spend there relaxing and exploring the Krishnamurti Library and other places in Ojai.

I've stayed at The Pepper Tree Retreat several times in the past year. The rooms and suites are quiet, clean, and tended to with care. The staff is friendly and helpful. This is definitely a place for peace and contemplation and I come here to write and to meditate. I highly recommend it!
