Los Olivos house description

Just two hours north of Los Angeles, 30 mins. from Santa Barbara, located in the township of Los Olivos, Santa Ynez Valley, you will find the perfect place to RELAX, REFLECT and RECHARGE. The house is tucked away on a small hill surrounded by mature eucalyptus, pine and pepper trees, just two blocks from the center of town where you can stroll to the Corner Cafe for a morning latte.

Walk to several (29 at last count) first class wine tasting rooms, lunch at the Los Olivos Cafe, a location seen in the film, 'Sideways'. Leisurely explore art galleries and antique stores. Take a drive through the Santa Ynez Valley and discover over 117 wineries offering some of the finest wines produced in California.

In the evening, you will find first class dining choices at the Sides Restaurant by the Chef Brothers, Los Olivos Cafe and Petros to be among the finest in the valley. Although you may run into a few celebs, Grapolos in Santa Ynez offers excellent Italian fare.

This newly remodeled three bedroom, two bath home can comfortably accommodate 4-6 adults. New king and queen beds are located upstairs. A trundle day bed is located in the downstairs bedroom.

An additional sleeping area in the loft is available upon request. There is flat parking to accommodate up to four cars. The living room has a slate surround, remote controlled fireplace (off May-Sept),flat panel HD Television, DVD/CD players and WIFI and broadband internet.

Through the french doors, right off the newly remodeled kitchen, there is a large redwood deck. 30 year old grape vines, espaliered on the fence and arbor surround the lawn and backyard. Roll out the Santa Maria Bar-Be-Que and try your hand at grilling your own Santa Maria tri-tip. Read or just relax in the backyard hammock.

Every Saturday- the NEW!! Seasonal Farmer's Market- just a 2 minute walk from the property. Enjoy the sunset with a glass of wine on the slate balcony off the master.

And we are GREEN. We use only green cleaning products- We use Meyers, Greenworks, Earth Friendly Products, Melaleuca, Kirkland green only products. We recycle and compost. You will love your experience here as I do.
