The Grand Lady
The Los Olivos Charmer is a unique Victorian home located in the heart of Los Olivos. There are many areas for you to enjoy at this beautiful property all while situated in on the charming street of Grand Avenue. There are several “sweet spots” to sit and savor the views of the adjoining historical Montanero/Herthel fields, the distant mountains, as well as Alamo Pintado Creek, which runs through the gardens. The gazebo offers a quiet setting to view the creek and watch wildlife in the riparian zone. A very short walk to the small town affords the occasion to experience restaurants and wine tasting at its best, including the historic Mattie’s Tavern, which was a stage coach stop back in the day. Inside the home you can also experience a little history of the valley as you dine on pews from Old Mission Santa Ines, which celebrated its 200th Anniversary in 2004.

Plenty of space!
This is our 2nd year in a row staying at this property, and 3rd or 4th overall renting through SYVR. The Charmer is a great property, plenty of space, and easy walking distance to downtown Los Olivos. We completely filled the main and guest houses, and still had plenty of space. Mark is great to work with.....very responsive!

The time we spent in your home was very enjoyable. Your home is beautiful and comfortable. The time spent here with family and friends will always be in our memory.
This was a wonderful house!
We had an amazing time enjoying the “country” feel of this awesome house! We made Miller/Joyce memories!
House- comfy and friendly!
Decor- clever, abundant, interesting
Comfort- “just like home”
Appearance- a “charmer” for sure!
Vacation- the best we’ve had
As the host for this “family event” I am happy and extremely pleased we chose “the Grand Lady” to gather my dynasty for our “Miller Memories II
Thank you for your house!
Awesome vacation! Enjoyed the house!
We had the most amazing time! Your home is amazing. Thank you!
Lovely home and perfect weather! Thank you so much for sharing it with us. What a great weekend!
Thank you for sharing this beautiful home. We had the best time!
We had a wonderful bachelorette weekend here. Loved that the house was walking distance to town and all of the rooms were super clean and cute. The only bummer was we spent an hour trying to get the DVD player to work only to find out the next day that it was never meant to be used by the renters. Hopefully they’ve put a sign on it now. The outdoor gardens were also gorgeous!
Wow! Your website built our expectations. Then you exceeded them in person! We really had a special time here while celebrating my 50th with friends and family. We love the area and really loved the “hominess” we felt here! If we can get all the folks together again, we will be back again soon. Thanks so much! Couldn’t have asked for more. Happy New Year 2013!
It was wonderful to have such a lovely house to stay at during our sister’s wedding celebration with my brothers and sister and their families who thoroughly enjoyed your house. Thank you!
We had a wonderful weekend in the Santa Ynez valley and very much enjoyed staying at this house. It has plenty of space, a beautiful back yard, and is easy walking distance to the Los Olivos restaurants and tasting rooms. We can definitely recommend it and hope to come back soon!
Mark Martinet and the Velo Club La Grange 3/4/5 Team thank you. You have a beautiful home and we all hope to be welcomed back!
Thank you Mark and Leanne for renting the Los Olivos Charmer to our group. We loved spending time in the backyard (extremely beautiful) and simply talking and enjoying the day with a nice glass of wine. The next time our group is in the Los Olivos area we’d love to stay at one of your properties again.
We all loved your beautiful home. It was such a pleasure to stay here. It was perfect for hosting our family so we could attend the Crush Party at Gainey winery. Crush Party…fun, fun, fun! Thank you , we will keep you in mind for our next trip to wine country!
Your home is beautiful! The yard is so fun to explore. Thanks for sharing.
