Nestled in one of Ojai’s most desirable neighborhoods, “Nine Oaks” awaits you. This rustic mid-century home—spacious, serene and inviting--is the perfect retreat for a family or group. Set on a glorious acre+, surrounded by 100-year-old oaks, once there, you will not want to leave.
The gracious living room has a lodge-like feel with its stone fireplace, mahogany ceiling, club chairs, and French doors that bring the outside in. Great for gatherings of all kinds, “Nine Oaks” has a fully equipped, eat-in kitchen, a formal dining area, and a lovely courtyard patio with dramatic tree lighting, large teak table and a grill ready for al fresco entertaining.
The spacious master suite features a king bed with large adjoining full bath, plus separate sitting/TV room. French doors open out to the back patio, where you are just steps from a dip in the seasonal pool or perhaps a Jacuzzi under the stars. Bedroom #2 is open and airy, with a comfy queen-size bed, and a desk that is ready for your laptop, plus a full bath across the hall. Cozy and bright Bedroom #3 offers another queen bed and adjoining bathroom. The “kids room” has a set of twin bunk beds and ample space for indoor play.
Full laundry facilities, cable T.V., and WI-FI are available for your use. A detached 400-square-foot writers studio--perfect for projects of all kinds, yoga or meditation--is also available for an additional fee. A separate guesthouse on the property completes the compound, and is currently rented to Laurel, our wonderful long-term tenant, who acts as the local host for Nine Oaks. While being very respectful of guest privacy, Laurel is available throughout your stay to provide information or assistance if desired, and ensure you have a wonderful visit.
Nine Oaks” is a delightful walk to downtown Ojai and only minutes to The Ojai Valley Inn.

About Leslie Strauss
We run a not-for-profit drama-based values and literacy program that brings inspiration and empowerment to many thousands of public school students every year. The work is very rewarding and demanding, so “Nine Oaks” is the perfect getaway for us after a long week. We fell in love with Ojai and chose to be married there, but it took us almost five years to find a spot in the valley that felt so inviting, we had to call it home. From the very beginning, Nine Oaks became our place for family holidays and special occasions, workshops, organizational retreats, and visits from many, many friends. We are happy to be able to share it with others who fill the home with even more joy. Laurel, our local host, takes pride in welcoming guests personally and orienting them to the property. She is also a great resource for places to go and things to do in the area, particularly if you like sports or the outdoors. While you may not see her for the rest of your stay, Laurel is always more than happy to assist you.

Fell in love with Ojai
Nine Oaks was perfect for my bachelorette weekend getaway, the house was everything we imagined and the weather was perfect for some pool time. We even walked into town a couple of times from the house. We all fell in love with Ojai and couldn't have found a better place to stay!
Wonderful accommodations allowing us to share time with family
They provided everything we could possibly want Our adult children were very pleased & the extended family were able to join us for a true reunion & celeyof a dear one’s life Thank you!
Beautiful house and perfect location
We had a great time here! Plenty of room for everyone to spread out and such a beautiful home. Perfect setting as well, secluded but easy to get into town. Highly recommend staying here!
We stayed at Nine Oaks for my best friend's bachelorette retreat. We wanted to do something relaxing to just spend time together. Nine Oaks was perfect. Laurel was so helpful when we arrived and the property was absolutely beautiful. They also provided us with information about Ojai-which we would have totally used if we hadn't just stayed at the house the whole weekend! There was enough space to comfortably fit all of us, with the common spaces in the house perfect to cook and eat and hang out! We spent the whole weekend in the pool and jacuzzi...it was really the most perfect space for a quiet, but fun weekend getaway!
House was beautiful. Host and manager were both easily reachable. Central location to just about everything. Provided linens, towels, toiletries which made everything so nice. Wonderful rental experience!
