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. Located at the end of a private lane off Figueroa Mountain Road just ¾ of a mile from the center of downtown Los Olivos. 4 Bikes included in your stay.

Beautiful spot

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful house in amazing shape. Great, well-equipped kitchen and lovely outdoor area. Close to town. The views are unbeatable.

Main bedroom is lovely. Upstairs space is on the small side, and doesn't really feel private w/out a door. Would be great for kids or a single person that doesn't mind.

High quality accommodations, plenty of outdoor space, walk to town

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this guest house for three nights -- 2 couples and 3 dogs -- and we fit nicely. Very nice quality and design. Very clean. The main house is far away on a hill behind trees. Plenty of land, space, and privacy. About a ten minute walk into Los Olivos. Great place! Definitely recommend and will stay here again! Oh yes and the stars at night are amazing!

Beautiful spot!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at this property! The house is cozy, cool and beautifully finished. The huge wraparound porch was a great place to chill with breakfast or a glass of wine. It was very peaceful watching the bees and birds buzz around the property. It's also very close to town and the surrounding vineyards. Our only complaint was that there is a office/trailer out back and it seems like the grounds of the property are being prepped for some sort of construction--but honestly, it's a small complaint. We would absolutely come here again!

Perfect peaceful paradise

  • 5 of 5

This guest cottage far exceeded our expectations. The location was perfect, private and serene. We enjoyed sitting out on the wrap around patio with views of rolling hills and oak trees. It was warm & welcoming and solidly built with beautiful finishes. The King bed was super comfy and we loved having windows/doors everywhere. Kitchen was stocked with everything you need, including spices. It should be advertised as a one bedroom with an extra sleeping area in the loft. Staircase was steep so truly more suitable for young adults or older children. It's definitely not for 2 couples, unless 1 couple doesn't mind going down steep stairway to bathrooms and are not very tall!! We enjoyed it so much, we can't wait to go back. Thank you to the fabulous owners who put on all the finishing touches to make it stand above the rest.

Stunning little home in the midst of rolling hills!

  • 5 of 5

We went for my husband's 40th birthday and brought our 7 month old. A 12 minute nice, little walk into town. Waking up to those views with fresh coffee was unforgettable. It was definitely somewhere we would stay again!
