About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Enjoy Los Olivos and the Santa Ynez Valley in a brand new home built in 2010 in one of the most amazing locations in the area. Set on 6+/- acres behind gates this charming guest house satisfies the most discriminating vacationer. Covered wrap around porches welcome you to this all wood beamed paradise. Sandstone fireplace in the great room with beautiful open kitchen and living room complete with breakfast bar and built-in corner bench dining area that seats 6. Master suite with king-sized bed and private spacious master bath, additional full bath downstairs with claw foot tub and shower, then wind up the stairs to a quaint loft-style enclosed bedroom with queen sized bed, note that ceilings are lower in this room as there are many angles, only 5'9' at highest peak. Majestic views from every room. Relax with a glass of wine on the covered porches while overlooking the lush pond and enchanting wildlife that it attracts. This truly is a must-stay if you are looking for easy access to downtown Los Olivos yet still want the privacy and quiet of nature and all that it offers for a serene getaway.

This is a great place. Private location and close to town. Very comfortable furniture and well appointed kitchen. We always had trouble deciding whether to go out for the day or stay in and enjoy the space.

charming and cozy home in wine country

  • 5 of 5

this is a great place to stay. House is adorable - charming and cozy. Very comfortable master bedroom and good size bathroom. Kitchen and living area charming, cozy and comfortable. Well stocked kitchen and good indoor and outdoor space if you want to cook in. Peaceful and quiet setting but close and easy walk or cycle to Los Olivos town. I have stayed here before and I will definitely stay here again.

Loved it!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! This was the first stop on our honeymoon. The pictures online don't do this place justice. Maybe I didn't look at them well enough, but we were not expecting the wonderfully upgraded interior! The kitchen had everything we needed. The clawfoot tub was amazing and the grounds were private and safe for our two dogs to run around! We very much enjoyed the welcome note, and sitting out on the porch with our coffee every morning. We highly recommend this rental and will be back! I don't know who liked our stay better, us or our two doggies!!

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My partner and another couple had a wonderful Labor Day Weekend at this property in Los Olivos. The views are STUNNING. We woke-up one morning to a hot air balloon airing up and taking off from the field behind the house. As others have said, the property does appear to be in a state of ongoing construction or landscaping, but this did absolutely nothing to hamper the beauty or calm of the place. It is quiet and tranquil. The house is modern, but charming. The bathrooms are spacious and lovely.

The kitchen is great and well stocked with lots of dishes and cooking utensils, as well as seasonings.

The second couple stayed in the loft and found it to be comfortable and private, if a little too warm when the sun rose on our 105 degree days. There was a heatwave so I can imagine the loft does not warm up like this on most days of the year.

I think our dog loved the property the most and got to pretend to be a ranch dog for a few days, chasing down everything that moved and exploring every nook and cranny of the yard.

We had a WONDERFUL time and hope to return. Our only recommendation is to have the bikes serviced. Many of the tires were blown and the brakes needed replacing.
