Get away from it all, without going far!
The cottage is cozy, light, clean and well appointed. A prior review talked about the driveway, which is not for the faint of heart, but my dog and I walked it daily and my regular car had no issues.
They will send out facts etc on the cottage ahead and I suggest you read, I’ve stayed at lots of vacation rentals and have found many to have basics like olive oil, salt, pepper, tin foil. You’ll want to bring those with you, but the kitchen is well appointed.
If you’re looking for a quiet retreat that is close to town, you can’t go wrong.
Cute, clean and comfortable
The property is secluded and quiet but easy to get to the surrounding wine country and towns of Los Olivos and Solvang. The Roku is old and it was difficult to access any of the smart tv functions. We streamed on our own device because the WiFi was good. The driveway is steep so not recommended for anyone with physical issues who may want to take a walk. We had to deal with multiple spiders, 9 to be exact but might just be common to the surrounding olive grove. Beautiful views. Large kitchen and the bed was very comfortable. Tastefully decorated.
Great stay in Olive Hill cottage
We tremendously enjoyed our stay in Olive Hill cottage. The house is beautifully decorated in a nice rustic style. The bed is super comfy. It is conveniently located 10 min away from downtown Los Olivos. We didn't even turn the TV with Roku on, so can't comment on that.
The road to the house is indeed steep, narrow and dark and the gate key is difficult to operate. We had to try multiple times before the date opened, even though we did press the buttons slowly and firmly. This is my only complaint, but still giving it 5 starts due to the fact that the house is indeed amazing.
Had to find alternative lodging.
We reserved for a week to celebrate our 30th Anniversary but didn't stay a single night. The access to the property is hazardous at best. The narrow degraded asphalt drive is both winding and steep with a sheer drop beyond the driveway's edge. We could barely make it around the garage at the base of the property and the tires spun as we tried to drive up the remainder of the drive. Trying to navigate this driveway at night would have been precarious. Obvious to us why this wasn't disclosed in the description of the property. My wife and I were left to scramble to find alternative lodging at the last moment for our anniversary. A request for a refund was denied by the owner. There are lots of great options in the area, this isn't one of them.
Rich I apologithat you were not comfortable driving up the driveway to our cottage.we have had over 100 guests drive up that driveway and have made it. Yes it is steep but it is all to code and safe. As soon as I received your VRBO message that you were not comfortable with driving up the driveway,I responded within 5 minutes with directions to an alternate gate on the ranch that isn’t as steep and is shared with the main house. I didn’t hear back from you for over an hour and called and spoke to your wife to make sure you arrived safely and if you needed anything. She then told me you guys had decided to stay somewhere else and if you could have a refund. I’m sorry, but you rented the cottage and had access and can’t get a refund if you cancel on the day of check in. Again I am truly sorry you were not comfortable with the driveway and didn’t want to try the alternate gate. It is a relaxing and magical space, especially to celebrate a wedding anniversary.
Beautiful place in perfect location for winery hopping
We had a wonderful time in this amazing property. Perched on a canyon hillside, it is right in the heart of Santa Barbara wine action but has all the charm of a ranch retreat. Roku system worked great but we spent most of our time cycling the beautiful back roads and sampling some of the finest wines in the world. A great trip!
It was fine.
Couldn't get the tv to work. No where to go. No movies worked. Over priced, we payed more then wgatveasjnurufllt understood, then would have lost deposit if we had backed out....most unfair. (What we in actuality were charged for this mediocre accommodations.)
