Teeming with small-town charm in a picturesque setting that thrives within an abundantly wooded landscape, the Arbolada is the go-to area for a private luxury life.

Dining, Shopping & Entertainment

A lack of chain stores in the city of Ojai encourages local businesses to flourish, keeping the neighborhood unique. From antique stores like Treasures of Ojai to Kariella, a women’s clothing store, locals enjoy the Arbolada’s proximity to Ojai’s thriving commercial scene.
Want a new go-to hair salon? Glo West Beauty is a neighborhood favorite. Need polish on your nails? Kristy’s Nails is the place for you. Pop into Ojai Valley Mall to experience an array of even more antique and hardware stores, salons and barbershops, liquor stores, and pharmacies. The Arcade Plaza will be just a block away from you, too.
For an exquisite Italian meal where the expansive veranda offers breathtaking views of the famous Pink Moment, check out Nocciola. And you can’t beat Ojai Ice Cream & Fudge for an after-dinner dessert.
