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!

House was a perfect fit

  • 4 of 5

The home was was really nice but the living room lacked furniture to make it comfortable(the cart seat was not comfortable...need a nice couch and chair). Patio needed to be clean the birds left a mess over the patio and its furniture...should put a cover of some time over the patio to keep the bird mess away...... There were no extra trash bags for the kitchen ( we bought some tho). Los Olivos was a lovely town.

Beautiful house, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The house is literally in downtown Los Olivos! You can walk to everything in less than 5 minutes - coffee, wine tasting, market, restaurants. Since the only hotel in Los Olivos is the Fess Parker, it is actually very rare to be able to stay in Los Olivos.

The house itself is large and beautiful! 6 of us stayed; but it could easily fit 9 or even more! The beds were comfy and the house was well stocked with the odds and ends, like spices, cooking spray, etc. it was clean and had a jacuzzi and a huge yard.

Overall, 5* experience!

Excellent house in downtown Los Olivos

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the house as two families with grown children for a bicycle wine tasting adventure. The house was very comfortable and clean. It was also tastefully decorated and spacious. The only comment is that it could have used a few more bathrooms for the number of bedrooms. There is a cute loft above the master with 2 twin beds, but it is a little awkward to walk through the master where people are sleeping to get to bed up there or use the restroom at night. It is fine for a family, but if you are not , it may be awkward. That being said, it is still a beautiful, comfortable place to spend a weekend, a right in downtown Los Olivos! You can walk everywhere to the shops, restaurants, etc.
