This was our second trip to Ojai staying at the Emerald Iguana. I simply can't say enough about this place. It is located in a residential area, so it is calm and quiet. But it is easily within walking distance of all the shops and restaurants in town. The cottages and rooms are stunning, with gorgeous decor and all the comforts of home. The gardens give you the feeling that you are in a special oasis of beautiful greenery. We stayed in Gecko cottage this time, and had plenty of room for 2 couples. The Gecko has a good sized outdoor patio with table and chairs to read or enjoy coffee or wine. Speaking of wine, each evening they served complimentary wine and cheese by the pool, and one night there was lovely live music. Breakfast is also served by the pool, and though simple, it was enough to get us started each day. There was a nice selection of fresh breads and fruit, yogurt, hard cooked eggs, and cheese. The staff were super helpful with dinner recommendations and reservations. We will definitely return.
