LOVELY & PRIVATE 2-STORY FRENCH COUNTRY COTTAGE. CAN WALK OR BIKE TO TOWN!

Los Olivos Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Our beautiful cottage is just minutes from Los Olivos on our private 5 acre ranch. Drive through the gates, past the corrals, up the tree lined drive and enter our newly-renovated cottage.

Hardwood floors line the living space with a wood burning fireplace that opens onto a dining area with its own bay window. There's a complete kitchen with granite counters, marble floors, and a laundry/pantry room with your own washer & dryer. Tucked under the stairs is a brand new, fully equipped bathroom with a big, tiled shower and large fluffy towels. Off the dining area, there's a cozy bedroom with a double bed and views of the garden.

Wander up the staircase which opens directly into the master-suite. Light the fireplace and sink into the queen size wrought iron bed with luxury linens and down bedding for a fabulous night's sleep. Just steps away is the bathroom complete with a Jacuzzi tub framed by Carrara marble.

In the morning you can enjoy coffee on the front porch, in the afternoon, relax with a glass of wine, take a nap on the big porch swing, or hang out on the expansive private lawn.

Adjoining the porch is a deck with a wrought-iron table and BBQ. Off in the yard there is a picnic table under bistro lights if you prefer to dine al fresco. For entertainment, the cottage has a flat screen TV, Roku box, HBO, Netflix, sound system, DVD player and complimentary WiFi.

Cyclists are welcome! Los Olivos is a haven for cyclists. You can stash your bikes in our bike garage and if you need tools or air, we can help. We have many bikes available for your use. You can ride into town or get out and explore the valley. Bikes are included in your stay.

The cottage is 1/2 mile from the town of Los Olivos. It is situated up on a hill surrounded by lawns, huge mature trees, and an occasional inquisitive horse in the nearby pastures. You won't see any neighbors or streetlights here. Close enough to pop into town but totally secluded for your privacy. SLEEPS 4 GUESTS MAX.

If your party would like to spread out, our Guest Studio sits off to the side (last few pics). The 500+ square foot house has:

a large living area with gas fireplace

step-up sleeping area with queen bed

flat screen tv with Roku: HBO, Amazon Prime, Netflix and free WiFi

wine refrigerator & microwave

Large bathroom with walk in shower

Large closet off the entryway

Add'l rates apply. Please inquire. SLEEPS 2 MAX.

We do not rent this out separately.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We are retired and travel a lot. Our stays are usually in condos or cottages since they provide more room, comfort and flexibility. The Los Olivos cottage ranks at the top of our list because it is very comfortable, well appointed and the setting is beautiful. All of the furnishing are tasteful and comfortable. The kitchen is fully equipped and stocked with the essentials. If you enjoy good restaurants, long walks, bicycling and, of course, great wine, this area is terrific. The owners, John and Karen are great folks and were extremely accommodating during our stay. We can't wait to go back!

We are former Los Angeles/New York transplants who abandoned city life for the tranquil surroundings of Los Olivos.

The tasting rooms, galleries, and restaurants of our quaint town are only a 10 minute walk or 5 min. bike ride. There's biking, horseback riding, golf, tennis, theatre, movies, shopping, festivals, farmer's markets and more. Santa Barbara, “the American Riviera,' is a short 30 minute drive south. Beautiful beaches are even closer, and never crowded. And our Los Olivos cottage is located right in the middle of it all!

Great Escape

  • 5 of 5
What a great property! The house is so beautifully decorated and the grounds so well taken care of. It's really an oasis up in Santa Ynez Valley. So close to Los Olivos and everything one needs up in the valley. The house is top notch and very relaxing, would recommend to anyone!

My husband and I celebrated an early 24th anniversary at the French Country Cottage while enjoying the special events at the Fess Parker Winery. We thoroughly enjoyed the delightful cottage and rich farm land surrounding us. The cottage provided the perfect sanctuary after full days of sightseeing and event activities. Sincere thanks to John and Karen for everything. We look forward to returning as often as possible.

Cozy stay in Los olivos

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful stay in this cottage. When we walked into the cottage each of let out a little Ohhhh! So sweet. We felt so comfortable. Four of us stayed and love how close it was to so many vineyards. We had a great time biking, tasting and relaxing by the fireplace each evening. We chose to cook in using the well stocked kitchen and enjoying great wines we had bought during the day. There was plenty of room for all of us. The fireplace in the upstairs bedroom was so romantic and the spa tub was great. The cottage is just as pictured and it was hard to leave . The grounds are beautiful with pastures, horses, flowers and swings. Each morning we enjoyed breakfast outside on the patio taking in the view. The owners are on site but very discreet. Will definitely return again.

Peaceful, welcoming retreat

  • 5 of 5
My BFF and I enjoyed a refreshing long weekend in your lovely cottage. Plenty of comfy separate spaces so we weren't tripping over each other. The setting is beautiful, and the thoughtful attention to detail inside and out made us feel like welcomed friends. Any writers and artists, by the way, who need a getaway conducive to the creative life, this is it.

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5
This cottage was just the right spot for time away with my husband. It is very private yet just a few minutes from town. The house is amazing, lovely, comfortable, and with lots of outdoor spaces to enjoy a meal, a bottle of wine, or a cup of coffee. The interior is beautiful, clean and well set up. Everything was even better than the photos. It reminded me of the English cottage in the movie The Holiday. Kitchen and bathrooms had everything we could need. There was a bowl of fresh eggs waiting in the fridge that were delicious. There are two fireplaces, 1 in the living room and 1 in the master bedroom to add to the coziness and the Jacuzzi tub was a welcome bonus. We loved biking in and out of Los Olivos, past the horses and roaming chickens and never having to get in the car. My husband works a lot so this is just what he needed to relax. We can’t wait to go back.
