Los Olivos Cottage - Inspired Design in Wine Country

In the heart of wine country and centrally located in picturesque downtown Los Olivos, this newly remodeled Victorian is steeped in charm, right down to the white picket fence.

From the outside, this 3 story home whispers back to the Victorian era with crisp white clapboard siding, dormers and decorative cornices in true handcrafted style. Inside, the spaces are bright, cheerful, and sparkling with special touches. With an interior designer's aesthetic, each room has been transformed through use of color played against pure whites, rich natural textures, and unique furnishings. A consistent feature throughout are cozy window seats wrapped in hand printed linen fabrics, all by Raoul of Santa Barbara, a sought after local designer.

The Living Room is divided into two separate spaces by a gas fireplace. Newly refinished hard wood floors shine underfoot. This spacious room gets plenty of natural light and also offers a 55" flat screen TV. The oversized bay window seat is suitable for 2 people to curl up in the warm sunshine that streams through paned glass.

The Dining Room adjacent to the Kitchen features a round glass top table and sits just in front of sliding doors to the backyard. This is the perfect place to have a morning cup of coffee and plan your day in wine country.

The Kitchen is bright, efficient, and stocked with all the necessary culinary tools to create wonderful meals or simple snacks. The cook will enjoy family and friends as they relax at the breakfast bar, which separates the Kitchen and Dining Room.

Upstairs, the Master Suite has a king-size bed and is romantic and inviting. The long window seat has custom designed white orchid fabric and is overflowing with pillows. The entire room is a restful place to enjoy a quiet moment to read or nap. A full Bathroom with walk-in shower completes the space.

There are 3 Guest Bedrooms on the 2nd floor, each have their own style in keeping with the colorful themes throughout this friendly home. Both east facing bedrooms offer window seats. Bedroom #2 features a king-size bed and Bedroom #3 features a king-size bed, as well. Bedroom #4 has a built-in twin bed with views overlooking the backyard. There is one hall Bathroom on the 2nd floor, and a Powder Room on the 1st floor.

A unique feature of this home is the 3rd floor Loft Bedroom, located up a spiral staircase. The Loft is the perfect place for younger family members to have a space of their own but is close to parents on the floor below. It offers a flat screen TV and 2 twin beds creating a cozy, fun escape. It should be noted that guests must go through the Master Suite to access this room; a glass French door in the Master Bedroom closes off the staircase, creating more privacy for all.

The backyard with large flat lawn is perfect for a family game of tag or croquet. Bring home a favorite bottle of wine from local tasting rooms, fresh fruits and vegetables from Los Olivos Grocery, and throw something delicious on the Santa Maria style wood burning barbecue. Create memorable outdoor mealtimes with family and friends in this spacious backyard and patio.

Vacations are meant to savor the gift of time. Enjoy the time to leisurely stroll to local wine tasting rooms, galleries, fine restaurants and boutiques, or simply wander and take in the amazing beauty of the area. Los Olivos Cottage has been thoughtfully prepared and invites guests to come together to enjoy a slower pace, and the beauty of this little slice of heaven. Cheers!

The Most Charming Los Olivos Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My family of four (with children ages 2 and 6) arrived at the cottage with my brother's family (including a 2yo) and my mother for a week's stay. The home could not be more perfect for a family getaway like ours, as there is ample space both inside and outside in the backyard for little boys to play, and plenty of spots for the adults to gather and relax inside to chat, read, watch television, and enjoy good food and wine. The home is so beautifully styled and fit with all the comforts of home to make it enjoyable and easy. This is a place that allows you to rest and rejuvenate while enjoying walks in the charming town of Los Olivos to shop at many local boutiques and taste wine. There are so many amazing restaurants in this town, and they are within walking distance. Additionally, if you find yourself looking for kid-friendly activities, there is a wonderful playground about five minutes away, miniature ponies nearby, a lavender farm, and a very nice public pool at Cachuga Lake. The nights at this home are quiet and peaceful, and the days are sunny and relaxing, interesting and fun. This was our second stay at this home, and we hope to return again and again.

Really beautiful and clean place

  • 4 of 5

The house was very nice and peaceful, wish we could have stayed longer. It was beautifully decorated in a very fresh and clean decor. Also, the house is right in los olivos and it is great to be able to just walk to restaurants and wineries. Great place for a group of friends to enjoy a weekend together. If you are going with a group, it is good to know that you have to go through the master bedroom to get to one of the bedrooms- little bit of an inconvenience, because it takes away the privacy for those staying in the master bedroom.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at this house, and would absolutely stay here again on our next trip to Los Olivos. We were very comfortable here with 2 families, including 5 children. The location is ideal. The house is just steps away from the shops and restaurants in town, yet we could hear horses and chickens, so had the best of both worlds. The yard is large, and we loved cooking outside on the bbq. The beds were incredibly comfortable, and there were many cozy window seats. We loved it all!

Los Olivos Cottage July 2015

  • 5 of 5

The Los Olivos Cottage could not of been any more perfect than it was. We can not wait to stay there again. You're almost in the center of town. Very short walk. All the rooms are decorated perfectly. The beds are incredibly comfortable. This is a 5 star spot definitely!
