Bungalow Three “Canary Palm”
For over 125 years, The Bungalows have provided sanctuary for those seeking the tranquility and adventure of California’s Central Coast.
Stay in a classic three-bedroom, three-bathroom historical Bungalow steps away from the iconic Mattei’s Tavern located in downtown Los Olivos! The Bungalows at Mattei’s are a reminder to slow down and enjoy life. Nestled in the heart of Santa Barbara wine country, they provide a starting point for walkable tasting rooms and a respite from the everyday hustle. Wander the streets of Los Olivos, sip a glass of wine on your front porch, or dine at the best restaurants in town.
Recently remodeled, The Bungalows provide pristinely updated accommodations while retaining the historic ambiance that families and friends have come to expect for over a century. Lush landscaping surrounding the cottage provides brilliant contrast to its whitewashed frame and original hard wood flooring. We welcome you to stay with us and to be part of the history of The Bungalows at Mattei’s Tavern!

“We did a property buyout for our wedding, and had the BEST weekend ever staying at Mattei's Tavern Bungalows. There are 6 houses, and PLENTY of room to comfortably fit the 35 people we had staying on site. The houses come with really nice amenities - towels and soap/shampoo/conditioner, and the kitchens were all fully equipped to make a full meal with tons of plates, glassware and much more! I know people that have stayed at some of the other SYVR properties and have said nothing but great things, too. Ashley and Taylor were very good at answering the many questions I had when trying to coordinate, and it helped make the weekend go so smoothly. Everyone was so complimentary of the layout/design of the houses - they are as quaint and cute as they look in the pictures. The property itself is just beautiful. It is also walking distance from some really great restaurants and wineries in town! I would highly recommend to any group or couple looking for a fun getaway near the central coast, and we hope to stay there again soon!”
"A large group of ours rented all the bungalows and cottages at Mattei's tavern for a 40th birthday celebration. The accommodations were A++, the coordination was seamless and the event space was beautiful. The Bungalows at Mattei’s Tavern were the perfect place for our weekend stay and event. We will definitely be coming back!"
"Mattei’s tavern was a dream backdrop for our Wedding. Taylor was prompt in her communication and so easy to work with. Every moment from booking the venue, all the way up until our wedding day was seamless. There is just a special, peaceful, and magical energy about Mattei’s. I want to do it all over again!”
“Fully furnished and refurbished cottages make for a great headquarters for exploring Los Olivos and the Santa Ynez Valley.”
“Mattei’s Tavern blew all my expectations and original ideas away upon setting foot on the property. I was looking for an outdoor space for my engagement party of about 30 people. Their event coordinator, Taylor, responded to my original inquiry within 24 hours with ideas, follow up questions and available days to show me the grounds. She met my mom and I early on a Sunday morning (the only day I could make it due to my work schedule) and gave us an extensive tour of the property. She showed us all the areas we could have the dinner AND showed us the amazing bungalows we could rent out the weekend of the event. Unfortunately they are doing renovations on the actual Tavern restaurant right now but she gave me several recommendations for private chefs and caterers who could provide food and services during the dinner party. My mom and I had a few other venues to check out in LOS Olivos later that day so we parted ways with Taylor and continued with our day. When we finished viewing the other locations (all beautiful of course, LOS Olivos is amazing like that), we both knew undeniably that Mattei’s was the place we were picking. We loved the idea of having our out of town friends and family be able to stay on the property and that we could choose from several sized outdoor spaces for our event. Taylor was so so helpful through the planning process! She connected me to our amazing chef, Mattias Bloom, and wonderful photographer, Lindsey Drewes, who shared Taylor’s knowledge for event planning and went above and beyond to make the day of the event easy for us. Taylor continued to check in with me frequently up until the day of our party when she was at the venue herself to help us set up and to answer all our questions. Our friends and family ended up renting out most of the on site bungalows for the weekend and LOVED them. My now husband and I stayed in the Hartley House and are already planning when we can return again. Everything was clean, easy to access and beyond beautiful. We can’t wait to go back!!”
“This property is absolutely perfect! It's charming, well laid out (a bathroom in each bedroom) and an ideal location in town! Ashley is incredibly responsive, and check-in was super easy. I would recommend her cottages to anyone going to Los Olivos- and I would love to stay here again!”
“Pretty place in a great location. I would definitely stay again and recommend to friends. The beds were very comfortable with nice linens.”
"Took a road trip from Southern California to Los Olivos to show our family visiting from Europe wine country! Lovely stay at the Canary Palm Bungalow. So cozy and chic. So much better than staying at a traditional hotel."
"We loved our stay-the house is really warm and cozy! It was great being here! It was a great friends and family experience, sitting near the fireplace with our blankets, watching our favorite holiday movies! The kids had loads of fun going horseback riding and playing golf and the adults loved the wine tasting. We give this home a 5/5 star rating!"

“We had a family wedding and booked all of the bungalows at Mattei's the weekend of October 24-28, 2018. Being a local we've always loved Mattei's and the ambience of the bungalows. All of our guest were so enamored with the detail, beauty, service and location of the bungalows, and will come back again and again. Thank you for making this celebration as special as it was!!!
“Charming cottage. Right in town. Nice design touches and great space.”
"I got married at Mattei's Tavern a two weeks ago and it was AMAZING! We rented out all of the bungalows for family to stay in and it was SO convenient all being together on the property. Everyone LOVED the cute cottages! My bridesmaids and I got ready in the new West Cottage and it was perfect- plenty of room to get ready and take photos (big living room & kitchen, spacious master bedroom, gorgeous master bath & great courtyard). Our wedding was perfect, we received so many compliments from guests about how beautiful of a setting Mattei's is and how special and unique the property is. Santa Ynez Rentals was so accommodating and helped to make sure everything at the venue was perfect for our weekend. It was the best weekend of our lives and can't wait to go back to visit in the future!!"
"BEST DAY EVER!! We rented all the Bungalows and the Outside Venue for our daughters wedding at Mattei's Tavern from Santa Ynez Vacation Rentals. It was a perfect weekend and the staff was very accommodating to any requests we made. There were numerous little places for the photographer to take memorable photos with a gorgeous natural backdrop. All the bridesmaids got ready in the Big West Cottage Bungalow - that was a JACK POT! The natural lighting and ample space made it a super fun and easy morning for 10 girls to get ready. All the Bungalows have been recently updated and were very clean and comfortable. I would HIGHLY recommend Santa Ynez Vacation Rentals, Matteis Tavern and staying in any or all of the Bungalows!! Great place to host a wedding!!"
"My friends and I stayed here for one night. We all thought the bungalow was very cute. It was easy to check in, clean and spacious for our large group. Each of the three bedrooms had its own bathroom. The restrooms were all spacious. The beds had very comfortable and soft linens. There was plenty of street parking right in front, and it was only a five minute walk into the main area of Los Olivos where the tasting rooms were. There was also plenty of hot water and the AC worked great. This was one of the nicer AirBNBs I have stayed at. There were also plenty of dishes, cups, and cutlery for all of us. The fridge was a bit small (smaller than your standard fridge) as we had brought a lot of food with us, but we were able to get most of it to fit. Overall, a great stay and highly recommended!"
"We rented this home for a 40th birthday party. It comfortably slept 4 girls and was within walking distance to tasting rooms. The space was clean and beds comfortable. We loved that there was a sitting room (with beautiful morning light) and a living room. There were nice little decorating touches. I loved that it felt more like a hotel vs. someone’s home, but offered private space for each guest. Highly recommend for a girls weekend away."
"Historic cottage at Mattie’s tavern that has been beautifully remodeled inside. Outside still maintains a historic charm! Walking distance to many of our favorite wineries including Saarloos, Evans Ranch and Carthart. Perfect getaway for a small group of friends and family!"
"The photos of this place don’t do it justice. One of my favorite airbnb stays ever. The bungalow is wonderfully charming, impeccably clean, just a gorgeous space. Six of us stayed here to celebrate my parent’s anniversary, and each couple had their own bedroom with private bathroom. There was plenty of space to feel at home, with a front room, a kitchen, and a living room, in addition to the three bedrooms. Jordan was also a wonderful host. He was very accommodating with necessary date changes and so hospitable and responsive during our stay."
"We had a great time! The bungalow was perfect for our family trip. I didn’t want to leave and I wanted to move in. Everything was perfect - location, amenities, comfortable space, and excellent host response to requests. Everything you could ask for was provided and it felt like staying at a luxury hotel. I already want to book our next trip to Los Olivos and stay here!"
