'Wow! We really loved the house. We couldn't have been more pleased. A great time was had by all and we are already planning our next trip.. Now I can see why you always seem to be booked up. My brother said it all, 'Truth in advertising. This place really is a slice of heaven!'

Thank you for everything!' Best,

'Thank you so much for the prompt refund of our deposit!

We had a wonderful time and will plan to stay longer next time. There are so many good things about your property -- LOCATION, dog-friendly, floor plan, proximity to great riding and walking, just to name a few. As others have mentioned previously (and this was one of the main reasons we chose your property), the fact that the bedroom/bathroom suites are separated makes it ideal for non-related people traveling together. We had never traveled with our friends before this trip. and it worked out just fine. It's hard to believe that we were only an hour from home. We haven't seen so many stars in the sky in a long time!

This is truly a 'find'. Thank you!'

'I would like to thank you on behalf of my husband, myself and the

other two couples with whom we shared your home last weekend. We had such a wonderful time, and the house had a great deal to do with that! I couldn't get over the location...we parked our car in the driveway on Friday and didn't get in it again until we left Sunday morning. We walked to dinner and wine tasting, enjoyed wine and nibbles in the gazebo, even watched most of Sideways! It was a huge hit and we are all wondering how far in advance you accept

reservations?'

'Our stay was amazing. The house was gorgeous and perfect for our family. We had the most restful and relaxing time we can remember. We were so pleased with the surroundings that we didn't venture far. The location was perfect. The close proximity to

wine tasting rooms, restaurants and art galleries only added to our enjoyment. We will definitely be back and will recommend your

property. Thanks again for everything.'

'We just returned home from our visit to California. One of the first things I want to do is to let you know how wonderful the Los Olivos house was!

We were traveling for the first time with my stepson and his fiancee, so I didn't want us to be too close, but I did want a family feeling. The setup of your house was perfect for us. We appreciated the privacy of bed and bath at each side of the living area. And you're correct, the back garden is irresistible. We spent most of our house time, morning and evening, outside, and even enjoyed a fire in the firepit one evening.

We have stayed in rental homes on trips throughout the world, and yours was the best situated, best designed and best furnished we have found.

The town itself is delightful, as well. We will highly recommend your Little Slice of Heaven to friends and keep it in mind for future visits.'

'The location of your rental house easily accessible yet privately located on a quiet street within a 2 minute walking distance to town, but the house itself surpassed my expectations: tons of parking capacity in the long driveway, large rooms, bright, airy, and spacious living areas, laundry and full kitchen amenities, and I can’t say enough about the big and beautiful back yard! My mother felt so much at home there that she did some gardening on the property! It truly was “A Slice of Heaven”. I would certainly recommend your rental to anyone staying in the Santa Ynez valley who is looking for a private, relaxing experience in a home away from home. Many Gracious Thanks, Again!'

Jennifer R

'The house was lovely and we all had a great time. We are all

definitely keeping the house in our files for future trips. It was

quiet, the backyard was super and it really fit our needs. Being able to walk to town for dinner was also great.'

Donna S.

Santa Monica, CA

'We loved the house. It was great to be able to walk right into town. The bed was very comfortable. The house is done beautifully, and so, is the yard. Thanks so much. We will be back, and suggest to friends.'

Perfect for a girls weekend! Great little town, would stay at Slice of Heaven again.

  • 5 of 5

There were 5 of us ladies and I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay. The interior was comfortable and well equipped, but the backyard was my favorite part with the great sitting areas (we even saw a white owl flying around the trees!). Laughably walk-able to Los Olivos restaurants and tasting rooms so we could all enjoy ourselves and get home safely-- it also turns out public restrooms are something of a rarity in Los Olivos so it was nice to have a home base there to utilize. Plus it's a short drive to many beautiful wineries and the other cute wine towns like Solvang. The only minor issue we experienced was being there on a hot weekend with a high over 100 degrees one day, it got a little warm in the bedrooms and we couldn't open the windows at night because there happened to be wildfire ashes in the air. We decided the A/C works best when the bedroom doors were left open. Another thing to know is Uber/Lyft drivers were not as prevalent as I was accustomed to, so give yourself a buffer if you have to be somewhere at a certain time (we did a bike tour out of Solvang and had to be there at 9am on a Saturday).

Like I said, we would stay there again. It was a wonderful time.

Perfect Get Away.

  • 5 of 5

The "Slice of Heaven" was a perfect fit for what we were looking for. A comfortable, clean and well situated home with a private yard. The property had everything we needed. We especially appreciated the very nice outdoor Grill and outdoor dining. We definitely recommend this property to others and hope to return again sometime.

A perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

It couldn't have been better! A quiet place at the end of the street, but minutes away from town. Impeccably maintained inside and out with a beautiful backyard beckoning to be enjoyed. The owner was cordial on the phone but never needed to be present. Six people could stay comfortably, although our visit was reduced to two due to a death in the family. We would definitely book this home again for another visit to the Valley. Perfect!

Cozy and well-maintained home with incredible location.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many properties in the area over the years and this house is by far the best location, right in town, but still very private. Quiet and peaceful. The house is great for kids- safe front yard to play, and the backyard is especially beautiful. We really enjoyed sitting on the patio sipping wine while the kids explored the fenced-in yard. Definitely would stay here again and highly recommend for a family with smaller children.

wonderful place to stay

This is a great house in a perfect location in the heart of Los Olivos. Great home base for bicycling, wine tasting, and exploring Santa Ynez Valley. I only wish I could stay longer.
