About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Enjoy Los Olivos and the Santa Ynez Valley in a brand new home built in 2010 in one of the most amazing locations in the area. Set on 6+/- acres behind gates this charming guest house satisfies the most discriminating vacationer. Covered wrap around porches welcome you to this all wood beamed paradise. Sandstone fireplace in the great room with beautiful open kitchen and living room complete with breakfast bar and built-in corner bench dining area that seats 6. Master suite with king-sized bed and private spacious master bath, additional full bath downstairs with claw foot tub and shower, then wind up the stairs to a quaint loft-style enclosed bedroom with queen sized bed, note that ceilings are lower in this room as there are many angles, only 5'9' at highest peak. Majestic views from every room. Relax with a glass of wine on the covered porches while overlooking the lush pond and enchanting wildlife that it attracts. This truly is a must-stay if you are looking for easy access to downtown Los Olivos yet still want the privacy and quiet of nature and all that it offers for a serene getaway. Located at the end of a private lane off Figueroa Mountain Road just ¾ of a mile from the center of downtown Los Olivos. 4 Bikes included in your stay.

Great house. Wonderfully comfortable for one couple

  • 4 of 5

Great location. Very nice home. Well stocked. Everything you want for a couple. Bed on Second floor is very difficult. Recommend just the two of you.

Lovely weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely incredible weekend celebrating our wedding anniversary. My husband and I did not know exactly what to expect, but based off of previous reviews, we knew we would have a great place to call 'home' for the weekend. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left, this home and our stay WELL exceeded our expectations.

A welcome note on the entry chalkboard and music playing as we arrived...completely clean and spotless, it was seriously just a dream.

Laura and Mark were fantastic from my first email all the way through our stay. We cannot wait to return!!!!

Great Santa Barbara Escape!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic home out in the countryside. The detail to the home is very nice, but the quiet surroundings allow you to recharge. Very close to wine tasting rooms. This is our second time renting from this owner and were very pleased.

Olivos Oasis

  • 5 of 5

The three nights/four days we spent at the Fig House were amongst the best close-to-home vacations we've experienced in 36 years! The property is gorgeous, including a pond where we floated on rafts we brought for the trip. The home is beautifully designed for a couple and has the bonus loft room for a second couple or kids. The master bedroom is perfect with an incredibly comfortable bed. The bathroom is ideally designed. I would just suggest more lighting by the mirror. There are views from most rooms and it is quiet with the exception of frog and bird sounds. The bicycles were great to ride into town or out the valley. We ate at SY Kitchen which Mark referred to us and it was fabulous. The kitchen is well supplied to cook, so we had breakfast at home every day and enjoyed our second night sipping wine on the porch and ate dinner at one of the outdoor tables and watched the stars appear. We will definitely return! I accidentally left a shawl and Mark offered to mail it to me! That's a thoughtful host. Laura couldn't have been more accommodating.
