'Wow! We really loved the house. We couldn't have been more pleased. A great time was had by all and we are already planning our next trip.. Now I can see why you always seem to be booked up. My brother said it all, 'Truth in advertising. This place really is a slice of heaven!'

Thank you for everything!' Best,

'Thank you so much for the prompt refund of our deposit!

We had a wonderful time and will plan to stay longer next time. There are so many good things about your property -- LOCATION, dog-friendly, floor plan, proximity to great riding and walking, just to name a few. As others have mentioned previously (and this was one of the main reasons we chose your property), the fact that the bedroom/bathroom suites are separated makes it ideal for non-related people traveling together. We had never traveled with our friends before this trip. and it worked out just fine. It's hard to believe that we were only an hour from home. We haven't seen so many stars in the sky in a long time!

This is truly a 'find'. Thank you!'

'I would like to thank you on behalf of my husband, myself and the

other two couples with whom we shared your home last weekend. We had such a wonderful time, and the house had a great deal to do with that! I couldn't get over the location...we parked our car in the driveway on Friday and didn't get in it again until we left Sunday morning. We walked to dinner and wine tasting, enjoyed wine and nibbles in the gazebo, even watched most of Sideways! It was a huge hit and we are all wondering how far in advance you accept

'Our stay was amazing. The house was gorgeous and perfect for our family. We had the most restful and relaxing time we can remember. We were so pleased with the surroundings that we didn't venture far. The location was perfect. The close proximity to

wine tasting rooms, restaurants and art galleries only added to our enjoyment. We will definitely be back and will recommend your

property. Thanks again for everything.'

'We just returned home from our visit to California. One of the first things I want to do is to let you know how wonderful the Los Olivos house was!

We were traveling for the first time with my stepson and his fiancee, so I didn't want us to be too close, but I did want a family feeling. The setup of your house was perfect for us. We appreciated the privacy of bed and bath at each side of the living area. And you're correct, the back garden is irresistible. We spent most of our house time, morning and evening, outside, and even enjoyed a fire in the firepit one evening.

We have stayed in rental homes on trips throughout the world, and yours was the best situated, best designed and best furnished we have found.

The town itself is delightful, as well. We will highly recommend your Little Slice of Heaven to friends and keep it in mind for future visits.'

Marsha N

'The location of your rental house easily accessible yet privately located on a quiet street within a 2 minute walking distance to town, but the house itself surpassed my expectations: tons of parking capacity in the long driveway, large rooms, bright, airy, and spacious living areas, laundry and full kitchen amenities, and I can’t say enough about the big and beautiful back yard! My mother felt so much at home there that she did some gardening on the property! It truly was “A Slice of Heaven”. I would certainly recommend your rental to anyone staying in the Santa Ynez valley who is looking for a private, relaxing experience in a home away from home. Many Gracious Thanks, Again!'

Jennifer R

'The house was lovely and we all had a great time. We are all

definitely keeping the house in our files for future trips. It was

quiet, the backyard was super and it really fit our needs. Being able to walk to town for dinner was also great.'

Donna S.

'We loved the house. It was great to be able to walk right into town. The bed was very comfortable. The house is done beautifully, and so, is the yard. Thanks so much. We will be back, and suggest to friends.'

One of our favorite vacations ever!

  • 5 of 5

The name of this property is absolutely spot on. We had such a wonderful stay in this private, clean and beautiful home. The layout is perfect for multiple families, the appliances and kitchen were modern, the backyard was contained for the dogs and Larry was attentive and so very helpful. Wow. Los Olivos is a cute town with good food, fun shops and plenty of wineries and just a block away. We will be back to enjoy heaven again!

Wonderful Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a quick weekend getaway for relaxation and wine tasting. The location was ideal right in town of Los Olivos. The proximity to the restaurants and wineries made this home base very convenient! The house itself was clean, cute and provided plenty space for the six of us. Granted we didn't cook or spend too much time in the house. This was a nice option to hotels we've been using when going up for wine tasting since we traveled with more people this trip. I would definitely rent this house again!

Great house, great location

  • 5 of 5

This cute house is right in town - the location couldn’t be more perfect. It has a lovely fenced in yard and we spent the mornings in the backyard enjoying a cup of coffee in the sun. Larry was a wonderful host and made sure we had everything we needed. I hope to stay here again.

Great house, and better location

  • 5 of 5

Five of us were staying in Los Olivos for a "Sideways" nerd tour, and used this house as a base. It's centrally located to split up the wineries to the north, and those to the south and west, including the Santa Rita trail, and was perfect for our two night stay, although I would have enjoyed staying a bit longer to enjoy the town itself. If you've seen the film, the scene where Miles declares with a flourish that he would not be drinking any merlot, the Wine Merchant Cafe, is about a one minute walk from this house.

The house itself is nicely laid out, with the living room right in front, with couch seating for five, with a flat screen TV and lots of videos to choose from, including Sideways. The couches were nice and comfortable, as were the beds, although if you don't like thicker pillows you might want to bring your own. The kitchen is in the back, but still connected to the living room. It is well equipped, with a dishwasher and whatever cooking accessories you might need. Through the kitchen to the right is a laundry area, a bathroom, and the bedroom with a king bed and TV. The other bedrooms are to the left as you enter the home, and there is a bathroom in the hall there also. Small, simple layout, and really all you need. If you have six people though, all watching TV, someone has to sit on one of the barstool type chairs.

The grounds of the house are beautiful, both in front and out back. We enjoyed sitting out back in the gazebo type structure, which is all the way in the back, listening to coyotes, screeching owls, and the bubbling of a creek somewhere we couldn't see. The backyard only has one neighboring house, so it feels very rural, and the centerpiece enormous tree is beautiful. It's really, really quiet at night, even on weekends, so a great house for relaxation and peace and quiet.

If you do decide to stay here, you won't need a car if you are just staying local, as everything in Los Olivos is within easy walking distance.

Look No Further

We've stayed here 3 or 4 times over the years and have never been disappointed. The location is perfect. It has a large scenic fenced yard for the dogs. It is well-maintained and clean. The owners are terrific in responding. Great!

Beautiful house and location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Los Olivos. The house was so warm and comfortable for the four of us and our two dogs. House inside is nicely decorated. Kitchen is well stocked. Beds are comfortable. We enjoyed the beautiful back yard. We stayed over Thanksgiving and had incredible weather and it was lovely to sit outside. The house is only a block from the Main Street in town so we were able to walk to restaurants and go wine tasting easily without having to drive. We would definitely stay here again!
