Wine Barrel Cottage - Graceful Charm and Fun in Los Olivos

In the heart of the Santa Ynez Valley wine country, this home sits on a quiet cul-de-sac street just a short walk to the tasting rooms, galleries, shops and restaurants of downtown Los Olivos. Welcome to the relaxing Wine Barrel Cottage!

This traditional Ranch-style home, with an abundance of windows and French doors, is bright and inviting. Outdoor spaces give the feel of the property not only quaint and beautiful, but designed for fun in the sun and relaxation. The clever addition of wine barrels around the yard add a touch of whimsy, while reminding guests to visit any of over 100 World Class wine makers. Tasting rooms are plentiful in the 50 square miles of Santa Barbara County Wine Country.

The Living Room, with stone fireplace and flat screen TV, is flanked by French doors that, when opened in tandem, create a perfect path for gentle breezes on warm summer days. For those on working vacations, a convenient desk is tucked in the corner of this welcoming room, and high speed internet access and fax/printer is provided. The adjacent Kitchen is well appointed with plenty of counter space, kitchen tools and a breakfast bar with seating for 3.

In the Formal Dining Room a rich wood table below vaulted ceilings offers comfortable dining in style. With views of the side yard and tranquil fountain, this vantage point becomes a wonderful place to savor a delicious meal or play one of the numerous board games provided.

The Master Suite, with king-size bed under soaring ceilings, is spacious and bright. There is a roomy walk-in closet. French doors open to the backyard, where large comfy chairs in the shade offer a cozy spot for an afternoon with a good book. The full Bathroom has a tile shower offering the option of rain or hand held shower heads. Plush cotton robes have been provided to add a luxurious touch to the Master Suite.

Two Guest Bedrooms each offer queen-size beds, with soothing colors of the sand and surf to help create a tranquil escape that will assure a good night's sleep. A shared hall Bathroom is equipped with a rain shower head in the combination shower-bathtub. There is Laundry Room with front loading washer and dryer.

With numerous seating areas outside, there are plenty of places to sit and enjoy a fine vintage, or keep an eye on the children playing in the family friendly side and back yards. A garden oasis has been carved out with trickling fountain and pond, adding an unexpected touch of the tropics. With a full size Bocce Ball Court, and plenty of room for lots of activities, other recreation items such as Croquet are provided (see amenities). Wine Barrel Cottage offers an abundance of reasons to stay at home and play! Plan a great barbecue feast on the flagstone patio with barbecue, or gather around the fire pit at night to enjoy the quiet neighborhood atmosphere under twinkling stars.

Los Olivos is teeming with activity as more and more tasting rooms open their doors, yet the feeling is still relaxed and uncomplicated here. Don't forget Santa Barbara is a short 25 minute drive away if a beach picnic is on the agenda!

Truly, when the day is done, it will be time to kick off your shoes, relax and enjoy the slower pace of life. Welcome to Los Olivos, and please enjoy your stay at one of the sparkling gems in Santa Ynez Valley, Wine Barrel Cottage!
