Los Olivos bungalow description

Relax, Rejuvenate and Enjoy the very best the Santa Ynez Valley offers in this ideally located and beautifully appointed home in the heart of Los Olivos.

Four spacious bedrooms easily sleep 7-9 guests.

The rambling California bungalow resembles a page out of the Pottery Barn Catalog as it features new beds (1 King, 2 Queens and 1 Twin/Queen Trundle) and new deluxe bedding and linens. Wood floors and beautiful furnishings create a rustic, yet welcoming and comfortable charm. The layout offers easy navigation and accommodation, and includes a super fun backyard (privacy fenced and on a large corner lot), featuring a huge farm table, outdoor lounge, jacuzzi hot tub and fire pit. It's perfect for an evening of chilling out while sampling the great wines you found while strolling through quaint Los Olivos.

All the rooms are updated with charming furnishings, including a fully stocked kitchen with Calphalon cookware, an extra-large refrigerator and ample counter space.

It's so conveniently located for wine tasting and shopping enthusiasts that the area wine country tour sign is actually located on the property (see the fun photo).

It's perfect for a family reunion, wedding party central, weekend getaway and quiet hideaway.

Choose your reason for staying here:
. Wine Tasting: 35 wineries are down the street, and the Foxen Canyon Wine Trail begins only a quarter-mile away.
. Food: Four world-class restaurants are only yards away
. Shopping: Numerous boutiques and shops are just down the street, and Solvang is only 3 miles away.
. Night life: The Chumash Casino is only 3 miles away, as is the famous Maverick Saloon, Solvang Brew Company and the Theatrefest.
. Convenience: Located only 3 miles from the Hwy 101 / Hwy 154 intersection, guests can easily traverse the region from this centrally-located home.
. Peace & Quiet: Los Olivos is one of California's most charming and rich villages. On the weekends, it's bustling with wine enthusiasts, then quickly transforms into the sleeping town that once made it the TV location for Return to Mayberry in the 70s. Starry nights with crisp, clean air and peaceful surroundings create a harmonious backdrop for pure relaxation and respite.
