About the Property
Spacious five bdrm home complete with two separate living areas, can be 2 nights
Elevated above quaint downtown Los Olivos this bright inviting home welcomes you with a warm feel, newly remodeled décor, and amenities at every turn. The views from the back balcony and patio give a removed view of downtown. Sink your feet into plush new carpet covering the upstairs level, a TV room and dining area in the great room off the kitchen. A third bedroom with hardwood floors and two full sized beds connect to the downstairs which has a recreation room with fireplace and dining area and a utility kitchen with wine bar. The master suite downstairs has a sliding glass door out to the spacious backyard and barbecue area. The floors blend from Old growth walnut to Brazilian Rosewood. A French door goes out from the wine bar kitchen area to the outside. A driveway comes up from the empty lot for easy access.
The linens through out the home are of the highest quality. Immaculate cleanliness is demonstrated by the bright white bedding nestled in hand carved wooden bed frames with decorative ironwork. The rustic homey feel is contrasted by the professional track lighting on the ceiling. Upstairs there is another master bedroom and second bedroom. The Vaulted ceilings of the upstairs great room give freedom to play. Only one television is in the master great room upstairs. Focus is on the games downstairs and the game table.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Los Olivos was made famous by Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch, and he was sometimes seen walking around town. The movie Sideways was filmed here, which put this town of 1000 people on the map; we now boast 50 wine tasting shops. Los Olivos is a happy town, with local events occurring regularly. There are four elegant restaurants: Los Olivos Cafe, Sides from Brothers Restaurant, Matteis Tavern, soon to be a five star destination resort, and Petro's at Fess Parker's Wine Country Inn and Spa.
From the downstairs patio of the house you can walk to the corner and enjoy great coffee at the corner coffee house. On your way, browse Wendy Foster's Dress Shop and Italian shoes. You will want to visit Figueroa Mountain Brewing Company at one point and look at the Gallery next door while you sip a savory brew.
First Street Leather is next to Stolpman wine tasting. Panino's has the best sandwiches, try the #12 on wheat sourdough, it's a favorite! The Lavina Campbell Park has recently been renovated for a picnic or a time to relax and people watch. Many wine tasting shops have patios and tables on lawns for picnics and wine.
If you take a stroll the two blocks by two blocks which makes up Los Olivos, turn into the Saint Marks church parking lot where there is a bench in an entry by the side cemetery which is quiet and serene for a reflective moment.
Passing the R Country Store on your way home anything you are missing can be quickly picked up. Los Olivos is a very safe place to be. All that right outside your door, AND if you feel like a drive, try Solvang, a Danish settlement with delectable bakeries, it's just minutes away. If you feel like getting a feel of the Old West, the town of Santa Ynez is close by. Lake Cachuma is located just 7 miles south. Great fishing, boating, kayaking. And there's more! The Valley is great for bike riding and hiking, too!
Year Purchased: 2001
About the owner: I grew up in the Bay area and went to Berkeley, but left for 15 years in South America shortly thereafter. I was with my college sweetheart following him around 10 countries in 15 years on a fast track advertising career much like the series Madmen! When I came back to the US with two suitcases, an eight year old son and no husband, I landed in New Mexico at the Light Institute where I learned to follow my heart. Visiting my sister in Santa Barbara, she suggested I see the Santa Ynez Valley. When I came to the Valley, separated from any other city by 30 miles, nestled in a beautiful valley of vineyards and horse ranches, grass laden hillsides dotted by heritage Oak trees, I knew I wanted to live and die here. I loaded up my horses and my son and we came to start our future. That was 24 years ago.
Why the Owner Chose Los Olivos, CA, USA:
I raised my son in this home. I felt like it was a window to the sky. It was place where all of my dreams came true. My son grew up and became a strong, successful, sensible, responsible and incredible father and husband. When he left home, I met a man and built the horse ranch of my dreams with him. I chose to renovate the house to the luxury and style equivalent to our horse ranch and rent it to others to enjoy beautiful Los Olivos. Even though we built the most gorgeous home and ranch of 500 acres, we still miss our home in Los Olivos. I think we were happier there. Living simply in town with the cozy feeling of the people and establishments that you enjoy so close by is a wonderful way to live. The Los Olivos vacation rental is a place of belonging and comfort. I hope it is a place where people gather and build and strengthen friendships. Happiness rings within its walls.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Being so close to town and yet a little above it all is a decided advantage. The backyard comes with a dog run on the side and is fenced for dogs as is the front lawn. The privacy of the hedges around the front lawn make your own patio under the poplar tree where you can see everything, but no one can see you. So many long talks and silent discussions have run along like notes of a song on the front porch. Hours have passed away in friendship and laughter. It's fun to go upstairs and downstairs with privacy in the family that gathers either in one area or the other. Plenty of space for individual comfort and shared times too.
