GUEST HOUSE AT RANCHO OLIVAS DE ORO OLIVE ORCHARD - NEW BATHROOM RENOVATIONS

Paso Robles Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Farmhouse, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Peaceful country setting on the Olivas de Oro olive orchard neighboring vineyards and wine tasting. Rancho Olivas de Oro is a working organic olive ranch with 140 acres of century old olive trees. We also raise Katahdin sheep to graze on the grass and prune the lower branches on the olive trees. Lambs are born April through August.

Enjoy the peace and quiet of the country with the benefits of being close to other activities. We are centrally located, just 15 miles to the downtown areas of Paso Robles, Templeton and Atascadero, 38 miles to Cambria and Hearst Castle, and 29 miles to San Luis Obispo. You've got lots of choices. Take the day to tour the many wineries in the area, take a scenic drive to the coast and Hearst Castle, or visit San Luis Obispo for a day of shopping in the boutiques. We are located on The Creston Winery Trail and are part of The Backroads Wineries. Gourmet meals await in downtown Paso Robles or make your own in our well-appointed full kitchen. Finish your day by gazing at the stars by the fireplace with a glass of local wine.

The farm house has been newly remodeled. The master bedroom (The Sevillano Room) features a California King bed, lounge, writing desk and private bath. The second bedroom (The Mission Room) features an Eastern King bed and a comfy reading chair. The third bedroom (The Arbequina Room) features a Queen bed and a sitting area.

There is a lot of privacy in the home. The bedrooms are on opposite sides of the house and are separated by a large common living area which includes a full kitchen, dining area, living room, and sitting area. There is a porch with seating in the front of the house and a porch and sunken patio in the back of the house. Enjoy the gas barbeque, patio seating, dining, and fireplace in the sunken patio overlooking the rolling hills of the orchard. If that's not enough room for you, wander around the 160 acres of olive trees or stop in the tasting room to try some or our olive oils, olives, vinegars, dirty martini juice, and ranch goodies.

We start off your stay with a bottle of local wine and some of our olive oils and vinegar with bread. The showers are stocked with our olive oil soap. We also provide coffee and sweeteners.

We've been growing and making olive oil since 1999. We love good friends, good food, and good wine. We enjoy entertaining and cooking and are always trying new things.

Our original olive orchard was in Oroville in Northern California. It was a great orchard, but not in the place where we wanted to be. We were lucky and received an offer from a developer to buy the land. He wanted the land and we wanted the trees! It was our opportunity to move our trees to the land that we wanted. We purchased the ranch in Creston and moved 2000 century old olive trees from Oroville to our ranch in Creston in 2007.

Marti Menacho purchased this farmhouse in 2005

We had been coming to Paso for over 20 years to visit friends and attend the wine festival. We always hated to leave. We enjoy the sense of community and quality of life, the beautiful countryside, good wines and dining.

We love the serenity of the land and the peacefulness of the sheep grazing while listening to the tinkling of their bells. Star gazing, sitting next to the outside fireplace and enjoying a glass of wine from a neighboring winery is the best.

Great Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We stayed a weekend at this lovely house with two sets of grand parents and the kids (beds for adults, aero bed in living room for kids). The house had plenty of room. The property is great, surrounded by olive trees and animals for the kids to see. The owners were happy to take our girls in to meet the sheep/lambs up close. We were also greeted with a bottle of local wine and some of their olive oils and a baguette.

The outside sunken patio is fabulous and where we spent most of our evenings. We ate at the Loading Chute in Creston and thought it was great. We grilled the second night and enjoyed that as well. Just don't forget to buy some everyday drinking wine as we quickly got to the point where we were drinking through the good wines we were planning on taking home.

A few notes...

As one would expect, the internet is satellite and very slow. Don't expect to stream videos or do any work besides send some emails. There is a Starbucks about 20 mins away that has high speed internet for serious work (hopefully unnecessary on vacation).

The olive tasting room is great and you should definitely make a point to visit sometime before you leave.

Be sure to do your shopping before you get there as the nearest grocery store is far enough a drive to make it really inconvenient.

Overall we had a great weekend and we will definitely consider this place next time we have a big family meetup in the Paso Robles area.

Owner's Response: We're glad you enjoyed your stay with us and that it fir your family's needs. We just replaced the satellite internet with a wireless solution that is much faster! We've got Netflix set up on the internet TV in the living room and are able to stream movies without any wait time. Sorry to say that it was installed the Monday after you left, but it will be here for the next time you are in the area. Thanks so much for your visit and your nice review.

Olives and Sheep Farm

  • 5 of 5
We had two families staying at the house for our annual get together, and had others who were staying nearby come for dinner. The living area and common space were huge and inviting, and fit our large group very easily. We watched the sunsets from the outdoor eating area. The kids got to pet sheep, meet baby lambs and see bunnies all over the property. We enjoyed the olive oil tasting room.

The house is nice and secluded. We only heard wind and our own voices (and the occasional sheep bleating). Great place to meet up with friends for a getaway. We used the fire pit and the grill and ate outside every night. The house was clean and spacious. Love the wine, bread, olive oils and balsamic vinegar provided.

A plus for the wireless internet provided, which reaches into the outdoor area and surrounding. We found the beds to be comfortable, and the rooms to be large. The inside of the house gets a great breeze and also has an air conditioner/heater if you need it.

Good location, just outside town with lots to see nearby. My kids are already asking if we can come back. Thanks!!

Solitude and Tranquility in Beautiful Paso Robles Area

  • 5 of 5
Set in the rolling hills of Creston--located just east of Paso Robles--this 160-acre olive orchard and working farm is an ideal place to take in all that Paso Robles has to offer, while providing a great spot for unwinding and enjoying the company of family or friends.
Home is extremely clean and comfortably and thoughtfully appointed. Beds are very comfortable. Bathrooms are nicely renovated--the rain shower shower heads are an especially nice touch. We found the kitchen just fine for our needs, though we cooked all of our evening meals outdoors on the grill, an excellent Charbroil Professional. No TV reception, but we did not miss television one bit. Solid wireless Internet service which covers everywhere in the house and also the patio.

Outdoors is the most magical part of this property. House is surrounded by the olive orchard and the pens of the sheep raised on the property. Close by, there are vineyards. In addition to over a thousand olive trees in the orchard, the property is also studded with large oak trees. Wildlife is abundant on and around the property. Near sundown one night, we watched a large hawk make low strafing runs over the rows of the vineyards, roosting periodically on a raptor pole located nearby the house before swooping down for another run. Another night, also near sundown, we saw a multi-generational covey of quail running along the road near the house. There must have been more than fifty of them; from adults to adolescents to babies. One night, a large owl--probably a five to six-foot wing span--flew no more than twenty feet overhead. The only clue to the bird's presence was its silhouette against the night sky.
The sunken patio is terrific for enjoying the amazing and unique Paso Robles climate. Daytime temps can reach triple digits, but around sundown, temperatures usually begin to steadily decline (fifty-degree overnight temperature drops are fairly typical in the summer), making evenings very comfortable (get wood for a fire in the outdoor fireplace).

Clear summer evenings and no light pollution around the olive orchard, made for some unbelievable stargazing. We could clearly see portions of the Milky Way as well as several planets. We saw numerous shooting stars.

Wine lovers should check out the nearby Creston Wine Trail. Olive oil from Rancho Olivas de Oro is delicious (we ended up joining their club). Highly recommend the Loading Chute; good food, generous portions and pleasant staff.

Rancho Olibvas De Oro

  • 5 of 5
What a beautiful spot. Loved all the animals. The owners are very nice, including the 4 legged ones. The olive oils are awesome. The house was perfect for two or three couples spending time together. We are from Northern CA and were meeting niece and boyfriend from Southern CA. Nearby Loading Chute was great for take out and eating there. Good wine tasting region!

Awesome time

  • 5 of 5
Had a great weekend with 3 couples wine tasting. Loved the Los Olivos tasting room which has the best olive oil in the area. Enjoyed seeing the lambs and especially enjoyed the two sheep dogs! Overall a great place to stay - will be back for sure.

Owner's Response: Thanks Kathy! We really enjoyed you and your group and would be happy to have you return. Just remember that we are Olivas de Oro and not Los Olivos (a town further south) :) With our recent rain the fields are green and the sheep are out in full force trying to nibble every blade.

Lovely home in a beautiful setting

  • 4 of 5
Rancho Olivos is in a lovely setting up a long unpaved road that winds through the olive orchards. You are truly back to nature staying here with the natural wildlife (hawks, golden eagles, ground squirrels & sheep) and the star gazing in the evenings is spectacular. The quiet and solitude was welcoming as was the neat and tidy home. The bottle of local wine with the bread and oil/vinegars from the property was a nice touch. The home is close enough to local wineries on the Creston Wine Trail (August Ridge is fabulous!) and about 20 minutes, or so, from Paso Robles. The owners were very helpful in answering our questions prior to and during our stay...especially rescuing us after we were inadvertently locked out of the main gate to the road up to the house after the tasting room on the property had closed.

If TV is a must for you, be warned. There is a flatscreen TV, but no service. A BlueRay player and several movies are provided, however we chose to enjoy music and good conversation and didn't miss it at all. In this beautiful setting, who needs it?

We do have to agree with an earlier review, that the mattresses were not the most comfortable (it was as if you were directly on the box spring and they felt and sounded "crunchy."). Our friends actually moved from the one king sized bed to the smaller double where they were more comfortable

We would like to offer a few friendly suggestions:

For guests that prefer to cook while visiting, have foil and/or plastic wrap available for storing leftovers. (thankfully we brought our own ziploc bags). We also could not find a cutting board. Finally, have more than one dishtowel available (we always travel with extra as we run into this frequently when renting homes on VRBO).

Provide at least one night's firewood for the outdoor fire pit with suggestions on where to purchase for the rest of the visit

Ensure that the key to the gate for the road up to the home is on the key ring with the house key :-)

Overall we enjoyed our stay and thank you for the hospitality and beautiful atmosphere.
