In the heart of the Santa Ynez Valley wine country, this newly remodeled home sits on a quiet cul-de-sac street just a short walk to the tasting rooms, galleries, shops and restaurants of downtown Los Olivos. Welcome to the relaxing Wine Barrel Cottage!
This traditional Ranch-style home, with an abundance of windows and French doors, is bright and inviting. Every space has been renovated, and sparkles with all new furnishings, décor and surfaces. Outdoor spaces have been newly landscaped as well, so the entire feel of the property is not only quaint and beautiful, but designed for fun in the sun and relaxation. The clever addition of wine barrels around the yard add a touch of whimsy, while reminding guests to visit any of over 100 World Class wine makers. Tasting rooms are plentiful in the 50 square miles of Santa Barbara County Wine Country.
The Living Room, with stone fireplace and flat screen TV, is flanked by French doors that, when opened in tandem, create a perfect path for gentle breezes on warm summer days. For those on working vacations, a convenient desk is tucked in the corner of this welcoming room, and high speed internet access and fax/printer is provided. The adjacent Kitchen is well appointed with plenty of counter space, kitchen tools and a breakfast bar with seating for 3.
In the Formal Dining Room a rich wood table below vaulted ceilings offers comfortable dining in style. With views of the side yard and tranquil fountain, this vantage point becomes a wonderful place to savor a delicious meal or play one of the numerous board games provided.

Two Guest Bedrooms each offer queen-size beds, with soothing colors of the sand and surf to help create a tranquil escape that will assure a good night's sleep. A shared hall Bathroom is equipped with a rain shower head in the combination shower-bathtub. There is Laundry Room with front loading washer and dryer.
