Overview

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.

Enjoy both houses for a 3 bed/3 bath/3 fireplace Los Olivos Getaway

About The Owner

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

Why The Owner chose 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!

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!

This is the kinda place you want to keep secret!

  • 5 of 5
We were celebrating our anniversary and this was the perfect place to escape to and disconnect for a few days. It is ADORABLE and neat as a pin. I love the movie "The Holiday" and if you liked the cottage you will love this place. It is so quaint and cozy. All the extra little details, like wall heaters the bathrooms and fireplaces, add to the experience. Los Olivos has numerous wine tasting establishment and you can walk into town so you don't need to worry about drinking and driving. We are partial to Epiphany and Stolpman for wine tasting, but there are so many we still need to try. The deli makes amazing sandwiches and the Los Olivos Cafe was perfect for dinner. Again all in walking distance. Karen and John gave us great recommendations and took care of us while we were there. We can't wait to return!

Girls Trip

  • 5 of 5
Some friends and I rented the cottage for a girls getaway/wine tour. The owners were amazing, they sent us a separate map and directions as cell service in the area isn't always the best, fresh eggs both mornings (we felt spoiled, they were delicious). There were maps and area magazines in the cabin to help us. Walking distance from town which was very nice. The kitchen and bathroom have all been well renovated. We just kept saying how wonderful the cottage and grounds were. We definitely plan on returning again. Can't wait for next time!

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!
