                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2007

                  About the owner: My wife and I have lived in the 'Valley ' for 18 years. We moved here from Santa Barbara. I am a retired Plastic Packaging entrepreneur . I was born in England, and raised and attended University in Ca. My wife, Susan, was born and raised in New Jersey and was an accounting professional. We have one son in college. We are both retired and very greatful to be able to live in this beautiful Central Coast region of CA. We both enjoy golf and are members at the Alisal Ranch Country Club. We have one wonderful dog named Teddy. He is our official greeter as he loves people!

                  Why the Owner Chose Los Olivos:
                  The communities of Solvang, Los Olivos, and Santa Ynez are located in one of the most picturesque valleys located on the Central Coast of CA. Coming into the region from Santa Barbara over the mountains on Hwy. 154 has some of the most breathtaking views you will see! The rolling hills with magnificent horse facilities,and abundant wine vineyards as seen in the movie 'Sideways' are truly spectacular. The activities, ie, museums, shopping, restaurants, biking etc. in all 3 communities afford us and visitors plenty to see and do !! All of the communities are unique, quaint and have styles of their own.... yet are very close together and easy to enjoy!! Golf in the area is X'lnt.and reasonable! There is the Alisal River Course, public with monthly passes available in Solvang( very walkable). The more challenging and acclaimed courses of La Purisima and Rancho San Marcos are public and offer cost saving packages within 15min. Within 45 min. you have fabulous courses with Ocean Views, Ocean holes ,good rates and accessibility in Santa Barbara, Lompoc, Nipomo and Arroyo Grande. We also enjoy the WEATHER!! We typically get 340 days a year of SUNSHINE!!!!,

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! We are in a very rural setting yet convienient to all activities the 'Valley' has to offer. A beautiful setting on 10 acres, very private yet all the comforts for a... ' LIKE at HOME' stay. Our guest House is spacious ... 870sq. ft. ...with great views and a very open yet cozy floor plan !!!
