About the Property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Batherooms, Sleeps 8

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 Jan, our wonderful long-term tenant, who acts as the local host for Nine Oaks. While being very respectful of guest privacy, Jan 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 a 5-minute drive to The Ojai Valley Inn.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: 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. Jan, 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, Jan is always more than happy to assist you.
