The Bay Area Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Farmhouse, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Peaceful country setting on the Olivas de Oro olive orchard with neighboring vineyards and wine tasting. Rancho Olivas de Oro is a working olive ranch with 140 acres of century old olive trees. We also raise Katahdin sheep to graze on the grass and prune the lower branches on the olive trees. Lambs are born April through August.

Enjoy the peace and quiet of the country with the benefits of being close to other activities. We are centrally located, just 15 miles to the downtown areas of Paso Robles, Templeton and Atascadero, 38 miles to Cambria and Hearst Castle, and 29 miles to San Luis Obispo. You've got lots of choices. Take the day to tour the many wineries in the area, take a scenic drive to the coast and Hearst Castle, or visit San Luis Obispo for a day of shopping in the boutiques. We are located on The Creston Winery Trail and are part of The Backroads Wineries. Gourmet meals await in downtown Paso Robles or make your own in our well-appointed full kitchen. Finish your day by gazing at the stars by the fireplace with a glass of local wine.

The farm house has been newly remodeled. The master bedroom (The Sevillano Room) features a California King bed, lounge, writing desk and private bath. The second bedroom (The Mission Room) features an Eastern King bed and a comfy reading chair. The third bedroom (The Arbequina Room) features a Queen bed and a sitting area.

There is a lot of privacy in the home. The bedrooms are on opposite sides of the house and are separated by a large common living area which includes a full kitchen, dining area, living room, and sitting area. There is a porch with seating in the front of the house and a porch and sunken patio in the back of the house. Enjoy the gas BBQ, patio seating, dining, and gas fireplace in the sunken patio overlooking the rolling hills of the orchard. If that's not enough room for you, wander around the 160 acres of olive trees or stop in the tasting room to try some or our olive oils, olives, vinegars, dirty martini juice, and ranch goodies.

We start off your stay with a bottle of local wine and some of our olive oils and vinegar with bread. The showers are stocked with our olive oil soap. We also provide coffee and sweeteners.

If you want something closer to town, we also have a vacation house in Paso Robles just 2.5 miles from the center of town.

About Marti Menacho

We've been growing and making olive oil since 1999. We love good friends, good food, and good wine. We enjoy entertaining and cooking and are always trying new things.

Our original olive orchard was in Oroville in Northern California. It was a great orchard, but not in the place where we wanted to be. We were lucky and received an offer from a developer to buy the land. He wanted the land and we wanted the trees! It was our opportunity to move our trees to the land that we wanted. We purchased the ranch in Creston and moved 2000 century old olive trees from Oroville to our ranch in Creston in 2007.

Marti Menacho purchased this farmhouse in 2005

Why Marti Menacho chose The Bay Area

We had been coming to Paso for over 20 years to visit friends and attend the wine festival. We always hated to leave. We enjoy the sense of community and quality of life, the beautiful countryside, good wines and dining.

What makes this farmhouse unique

We love the serenity of the land and the peacefulness of the sheep grazing while listening to the tinkling of their bells. Star gazing, sitting next to the outside fireplace and enjoying a glass of wine from a neighboring winery is the best.

Great Countryside Stay at Olive and Sheep Ranch

  • 5 of 5

Three couples stayed for a weekend of wine tasting. Three bedrooms with comfy beds and a huge living room was the perfect fit. We love staying in the country rather than town. We enjoyed walking around looking at the sheep and sheep dogs at sunset. We hit Trader Joes and bbq'd our dinner on the patio one night and enjoyed the gift of wine, bread and olive oil. Absolutely wonderful place.

Beautiful private escape

  • 4 of 5

5 of us had a great stay at Olivas de Oro. The house was large, well-furnished, and very clean. We decided to stay in for dinner 2 of our 3 nights. During the day we were able to drive to several nearby wineries, and also had a day at the shore at nearby Morro Bay, Cayucos, and Cambria. Beautiful sunset. The owners were very helpful with directions and suggestions for dining. We all agreed we would come back in a heartbeat.

Gorgeous, relaxing, and peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

Four of us stayed for a much needed 3 night getaway. It was so peaceful and relaxing. We spent some time wine tasting at nearby wineries, and we really enjoyed our time visiting and relaxing at the house. We stayed in for dinner, enjoyed a nice BBQ on the patio and watched the sunset.

You must visit the Olive Oil shop on the property and do some Olive oil and balsamic vinegar tasting. We came home with several oils and vinegars that are absolutely fantastic.

All of us would stay here again and recommend it for your next quiet getaway!

A quiet, relaxing, and beautiful place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented this guest house while in town for a wedding at The Loading Chute, just a couple miles away. The house was perfectly roomy for 5 adults and our one-year old. (We brought our own pack-n-play for her to sleep in, and there was plenty of room in the master suite for it.) We really enjoyed hanging out on the patio in the evening; the property is so pretty and peaceful. The outdoor fire place is such a nice feature! Being surrounded by trees and sheep and not much else, was really refreshing. The house is spacious, well maintained, and tastefully decorated. We felt right at home. It was a treat to enjoy olive oil and vinegar tasting during our visit, and to have bread, oil and vinegar, and local wine waiting for us when we arrived. I really just wish we could have stayed longer!

We also really enjoyed checking out the area and doing some wine-tasting in our down-time.

Simply Lovely

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't be more pleased with our stay. The property was stunning and the house had everything a family needs to enjoy evening BBQs, big family breakfasts, etc. The house is spacious, the beds are incredibly comfortable and there are two decks where you can capture the sunset and sunrise. My 5 month old loves the goats and my 83 year old father in law loves the puppies! I loved the tasting room. All in all an amazing trip for our little extended family. Thank you to Frank and Marti for making us feel at home and constantly providing tips and answering questions.

Beautiful, peaceful property

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautiful and peaceful--we saw lots of wildlife (hawks, bunnies, toads) on the property aside from the animals they keep. The guest house itself had a much larger living room than expected. It gave the house a nice, open feel and separated the bedroom areas. The a/c was wonderful to have and worked perfectly, considering it was about 100 degrees outside!

We sampled the olive oils, vinegars, salts, and spreads in the Tasting Room (samples all free) and ended up purchasing some items to take back because we loved them so much. We also purchased some lamb and cooked it on the grill during our stay, using truffle salt and barbecue slather that we also purchased from the Tasting Room. It was delicious!! The kitchen was well-stocked with all the proper cooking and dining utensils.

Marti provided just the right amount of communication for us--thorough emails with helpful information before our stay (including grocery stores, local restaurants, wineries), and clear instructions for check-in, but we kept to ourselves during the actual stay (which was perfect for us, as we were out and about for wedding festivities at the winery next door).

We would not hesitate to stay at this property again. It was beautiful and peaceful, which was just what we were looking for. The home was large, clean, and well-equipped. Thank you for opening your guest house to us!!
