ROMANTIC GET AWAY ON ORGANIC VINEYARD & SHORT STROLL TO DOWNTOWN LOS OLIVOS!

Los Olivos Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2)

Our Vineyard Retreat is an ideal romantic getaway. Our relaxing setting welcomes you the moment you arrive and lets you truly unwind and have a unique wine country experience. The retreat is off a private wing of our home on one of the smallest producing wineries in Santa Barbara County. The open vistas of our CCOF certified organic vineyard and surrounding farmland spread out before you and provide a relaxing view. We take great pride in all the details that make our guests crave to return again and again.

We also have a two-bedroom two-bath retreat located on our property overlooking our vineyard which can accommodate 2-4 guests (more info below) www.BernatRetreats.com

The Vineyard Retreat: The Vineyard Retreat consists of one bedroom, a family room & kitchen nook, a fully stocked kitchen, & a bathroom. The bedroom has a super comfortable king-sized bed with luxurious bedding. The bathroom has a tub/shower combo & plush resort size towels. The kitchen nook, family room, & kitchen are encompassed in the same space with beautiful views of the vineyard and mediterranean landscaping. There is a flat screen TV and two iPod stations. Free wireless internet access is available. The kitchen is fully stocked to prepare a wine country meal but you don't want to miss out on the many fine dining establishments in the Santa Ynez Valley. Including our own highly reviewed and much loved Los Olivos Wine Merchant & Cafe! A private patio with table and teak steamers entices guests to soak in the tranquility of country life. In addition to our vineyard there are 4 acres of organically farmed land that grace the view.

Los Olivos and Surrounding Area: The 20+ tasting rooms, galleries, and restaurants, of our quaint little town, are a 10 minute walk (20 minute stroll) or a short bike ride away. We also offer complimentary cruisers.

The Santa Ynez Valley comprises the danish town of Solvang, the western themed town of Santa Ynez, Ballard, Buellton, and Los Olivos. Aside from tasting the many vintages of the Santa Barbara County wines the valley offers; biking, horseback riding (in fact, if you have a horse and want to bring them, we have room for two), hiking, fishing, live theatre, movie theatre, shopping, festivals, surfing and much more. Santa Barbara is a 40 minute drive and the beach is only 30 minutes.

If you only stay two nights, you'll wish you have stayed more!

Also on our property is our newly remodeled two bedroom-two bath, Winery Retreat, with it's own private bocce ball court (VRBO #474727 or visit all our rentals at www.BernatRetreats.com). *Special Pricing for Single Couple*

About Us: Our life is about sharing the bounty and beauty of our piece of the world. Our restaurant is internationally recognized for serving the highest quality wine country cuisine that expresses the flavors of our area. Our wine is a complete reflection of the soil that it grows from. Family and Friends are at the center of who we are. Opening our Vineyard and Winery Retreats to others is another opportunity for us to share our countless blessings making them all the more meaningful.

About Lindsey Nicastro

We love wine country living in the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley. Our life revolves around family, friends, food, and wine. Now we are pleased to share our blessings and the beauty that surrounds us with others.

Lindsey Nicastro purchased this cottage in 1995

Why Lindsey Nicastro chose Los Olivos

Guests love our close proximity to town and the rural country surrounding that immediately welcomes them to wind down. Staying among the vines and farmland yet only a stroll away from downtown Los Olivos makes our retreats among the most desirable places to stay in the Santa Ynez Wine Country.

What makes this cottage unique

Our guests get to experience a small family owned an operated working winery. And the tranquility of country life with the conveniences of being near all the fun that surrounds us. Just a 10 minute walk (15 minute stroll) and you will be in the charming town of Los Olivos with over 30 tasting rooms and shops. Solvang, Santa Ynez, and Buellton are all 5-10 minutes driving. The beaches and shopping of Santa Barbara is 35 minutes south. Lake Cachuma is 15 minutes away. And 45 minutes north of us is Pismo Beach and San Luis Obispo, another half hour of driving and you will find yourself in the Paso Robles wine country. For theatre goers the PCPA TheaterFest offers quality performances in their outdoor theatre in Solvang, all summer long.The rolling hills and Oak trees that surround us make our home beautiful year around.

We love the SY Valley, and this property is among our faviorite reasons to visit!

  • 5 of 5
The property is well locate close to downtown, but is so secluded and private that we felt far away from it all. The wine & cheese on arrival, and the invitation to dine at the owner's restaurant in Los Olivos were a wonderful surprise - the wine & food were delicious.
We loved our 3 night stay- we will definitely return!

Great relaxing stay in a beautiful retreat and vineyard

  • 5 of 5
We arrived a little early for check in and found the housekeeper just finishing up. She was very helpful and I could see right away that she had done a great job. She said it was her favorite place and loved the view from the retreat. We couldn't have agreed with her more. The sofa was so comfortable and inviting. The bedroom was furnished very nicely and the bedding was wonderful. I've already purchased the same bedding for our home in Phoenix.
The gift basket of wine and cheese arrived a little later and was much enjoyed. We also dined at the owners restaurant in Los Olivos each night and found it to be very good. We enjoyed the hospitality of the restaurant while dining on their comfortable patio. We also walked to breakfast each morning. Once to a close by cafe/grocery and once to Fes Parkers great hotel and restaurant

Such a wonderful, calm, and tranquil retreat. We went with our 5 month old baby and loved that we had such a beautiful space to walk her around at night. Comfortable beds, calm bathroom and the kitchen has all the essentials.
Would absolutely recommend to friends and hope to stay again!

Better Than We Imagined!

  • 5 of 5
We've been using VRBO for many years now. We've never had a horrible experience, but never a dream experience either. That changed this past weekend...We had a wonderful experience celebrating our 11 years of marriage at the Bernat Retreat and have recommended it to all my friends in my city. The location was perfect, it was extremely clean and inviting, smelled wonderful (which is highly needed for me as an asthmatic) and we could have asked for anything better. Their restaurant treated us like gold when we went in for dinner. Then we happened to mention where we were staying while wine tasting at Firestone and the wine pourer also worked for the family in the evenings at their Los Olivos Wine Merchant and Cafe and couldn't say enough positive things about them. Can't wait to go back!

Weekend

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had never been to this area and were excited to explore. It didn't disappoint! We enjoyed all the wine and ate some amazing meals-- including one at the owners restaurant! I was very impressed when we pulled up to the retreat but became a little nervous when I saw that it was connected to their house.... The nerves quickly went away when I looked around and saw how private the retreat was! It was not an issue at all. The retreat was clean and homey. The details of the wine and cheese and coffee and creamer did not go unnoticed. They also left a detailed list of things to do and restaurants in the area. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a great weekend!
