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.

Idyllic setting, beautiful home
This was the perfect home for our extended family (7adults, 1 baby) to celebrate together. We cooked, sewed, read, played games, and hot tubbed at the house; and biked, shopped, and explored Ojai’s many charms. Lots of space to be together or to be apart when needed. It’s a beautiful house with comfy furniture, good beds, and cool decor. I especially love the great textiles. Thank you.
This was a very nice house in a quiet neighborhood. We had a wonderful time.
2019 Girls Weekend
Overall, this is a very nice place. It is nicely and fully furnished. It was also supplied with toilet paper, shampoo, soap, etc unlike a lot of rentals. The location is perfect, away from town but walkable to it. We were comfortable. A couple of nits - ants in the master bath and the cleaners could do a lot better job. Things not dusted, dirt in corners. The pool area was not inviting. The furniture was not clean and there were leaves and debris on the pool deck. Laurel is a gem.
Everything was great. I would definitely recommend and stay here again.
I can’t imagine a better place to stay in Ojai. Eight of us stayed at Nine Oaks for a my bachelorette party. The house had everything we needed. Laurel was so accommodating with check in which was great.
Also the earlier check in and later check out time than usual was really fantastic because it gave us extra time to enjoy the house and we really loved not having to rush out on our check out day.
Very highly recommended and I wouldn’t hesitate to go back. It would be my number one choice in Ojai.
Fantastic house and property
I can’t say enough about this property! The house is amazing. We had our whole family here. Each family got a bedroom and two young cousins shared the bunk bed room. The master bedroom is large enough for a family of four with a room divider to separate the baby from the parents. The queen room was also very spacious. My husband and I stayed in the double room...away from the young people. I tend to go to bed early so this was perfect! Many places for the whole family to sit down for meals...a formal dining area, a kitchen dining table and an outdoor eating table.
The outside area was a plus for us. A hugh grass area where we could set up a baby pool and the adults could play bocce ball. The pool and hot tub were a hit with everyone!
Laurel, the property manager, who lives onsite, is so helpful and sweet. I so enjoyed talking with her. However, you never see her unless you text her.
We will definitely be back! A fantastic time had by all! Thank you!
