Property description

Our beautiful cottage is just a 5 minute walk to the center of 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.

Enter into the living area with thick log walls original to the over 60 yr. old cottage. You'll find hardwood floors and a wood burning fireplace that opens onto a dining area with a huge bay window. There's a complete kitchen with dark granite counters and marble floors, and a laundry/pantry room with your own washer & dryer. Tucked under the stairs is a 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 and you will discover the perfect master-suite. Light the fireplace and sink into the queen size bed with down comforter 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, 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 MAX. Basket of local information, winery tasting cards, etc, is located in the living area to help you plan and fill your days!

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, CA, USA:
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!
