Property Description

Los Olivos Hartley House

The Hartley House at Mattei’s Tavern is the oldest home in Los Olivos and a charming 2-bedroom historical bungalow steps away from the iconic Mattei’s Tavern. Nestled in the heart of Santa Barbara wine country, the Hartley House provides a jumping off point for walkable tasting rooms and offers visitors an unparalleled chance to stay in a piece of history.

You can feel the history in the walls of the Hartley House, built in Los Olivos circa 1882. Exterior walls are constructed of redwood and painted white, and the roof is made of tin. A former tasting room, the house has a modern bar in the kitchen and a beautiful wrap-around porch, along with two updated bedrooms. Spend some time wandering the streets of Los Olivos, sip a glass of wine on your front porch or dine at some of the best restaurants in town and take in the beauty that surrounds you!

Property Reviews


“We stayed at the house for our wedding. It was a great place and met all our needs. Ashley was very responsive and we appreciate the great service.”

John and Deborah

“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!!!


"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!!"


“Great patio area to enjoy in the late afternoon with a glass of wine or early morning with a cup of coffee! Quiet and easily walkable (5 min) to all of the wineries! So much charm.”


“The Hartley House is the perfection location for a relaxing, wine tasting getaway. It's located in the heart of Los Olivos, walking distance for many wine tasting rooms, galleries, and restaurants. There are two bedrooms, with a king bed upstairs in a spacious loft. We enjoyed hanging outside on the wrap around porch in the early evenings. Note that there is no refrigerator and it'd be tough to cook in the kitchen. The house is also very old, so you can hear everything through the walls, especially whenever someone is walking around upstairs. ”


"We absolutely loved it here!  It was the perfect setting to celebrate my mother's 70th birthday!  It's a great location, beautiful scenery and close to wineries!"


"What a beautiful piece of history! Gorgeous furnishings and elegant rooms. My husband and I felt like we had our own little private romantic corner of Los Olivos. This place came highly recommended to me and did not disappoint! We will definitely be back!"

"Fantastic and quant historic house fixed up to cool modern standards. This is walking distance to all the magic of Los Olivos, yet tucked away 2 blocks from the hustle and bustle of the main street. Plenty of parking and all great amenities."
