Los Olivos cottage description

Our beautiful cottage is just minutes from Los Olivos on our private 5 acre ranch. Drive through the gates, past the corrals, up the tree lined drive and enter our newly-renovated cottage.

Hardwood floors line the living space with a wood burning fireplace that opens onto a dining area with its own bay window. There's a complete kitchen with granite counters, marble floors, and a laundry/pantry room with your own washer & dryer. Tucked under the stairs is a brand new, fully equipped bathroom with a big, tiled shower and large fluffy towels. Off the dining area, there's a cozy bedroom with a double bed and views of the garden.

Wander up the staircase which opens directly into the master-suite. Light the fireplace and sink into the queen size wrought iron bed with luxury linens and down bedding for a fabulous night's sleep. Just steps away is the bathroom complete with a Jacuzzi tub framed by Carrara marble.

In the morning you can enjoy coffee on the front porch, in the afternoon, relax with a glass of wine, take a nap on the big porch swing, or hang out on the expansive private lawn.

Adjoining the porch is a deck with a wrought-iron table and BBQ. Off in the yard there is a picnic table under bistro lights if you prefer to dine al fresco. For entertainment, the cottage has a flat screen TV, Roku box, HBO, Netflix, sound system, DVD player and complimentary WiFi.

Cyclists are welcome! Los Olivos is a haven for cyclists. You can stash your bikes in our bike garage and if you need tools or air, we can help. We have many bikes available for your use. You can ride into town or get out and explore the valley. Bikes are included in your stay.

The cottage is 1/2 mile from the town of Los Olivos. It is situated up on a hill surrounded by lawns, huge mature trees, and an occasional inquisitive horse in the nearby pastures. You won't see any neighbors or streetlights here. Close enough to pop into town but totally secluded for your privacy. SLEEPS 4 GUESTS MAX.

If your party would like to spread out, our Guest Studio sits off to the side (last few pics). The 500+ square foot house has:
a large living area with gas fireplace
step-up sleeping area with queen bed
flat screen tv with Roku: HBO, Amazon Prime, Netflix and free WiFi
wine refrigerator & microwave
Large bathroom with walk in shower
Large closet off the entryway
Add'l rates apply. Please inquire. SLEEPS 2 MAX.
We do not rent this out separately.

Enjoy both houses for a 3 bed/3 bath/3 fireplace Los Olivos Getaway

                  Owner info

                  About the owner: We are former Los Angeles/New York transplants who abandoned city life for the tranquil surroundings of Los Olivos.

                  Why the Owner Chose Los Olivos:
                  The tasting rooms, galleries, and restaurants of our quaint town are only a 10 minute walk or 5 min. bike ride. There's biking, horseback riding, golf, tennis, theatre, movies, shopping, festivals, farmer's markets and more. Santa Barbara, “the American Riviera,' is a short 30 minute drive south. Beautiful beaches are even closer, and never crowded. And our Los Olivos cottage is located right in the middle of it all!
