The Blue Iguana Inn was designed and built by renowned Ojai Architect, Marc Whitman. It was built in an old mission sytle reminiscent of Mexico and Old California with arched entrances, terra cotta curved roofing and rugged outpost railing. Large Ojai river rocks tumble into place forming corners. Flagstone paths are marked with intricate inset stone designs hand inlaid by Julia Whitman. The exquisite handmade mediterranean tiles on the walls and around the pool were created by celebrated Ojai Studio Artists Richard Keit and Mary Kennedy. You are greedted at the entry by Marc Whitman's imposing Blue Iguana tile mosaic sculpture and fountain, as you wander around the garden, look for other mysterious creatures hidden throughout the grounds. A little blue azurite lizard? A gecko on the wall? A serpent in the stones? What next? The artistry is continued in each of our guestrooms. The Blue Iguana's Owner, Julia Whitman has overseen the individual design and decoration of each room. Whether you choose a fully equipped, one or two bedroom, kitchen suite or a single room, you will find the walls decorated with original artworks from some of Ojai's best known artists. Each room has been uniquely furnished with hand-chosen, authentic Mexican furniture and decorated with rugs and accessories from throughout the world. The 'Old World' ambiance of the Blue Iguana Inn is complemented by the warm and friendly environment created by Manager, Lia Dalidd. Her competance is surpassed only by her desire to make all our guests feel comfortable and happy.
