Property Description

Bungalow Two “Persimmon”

Once a stagecoach stop pioneered by the Swiss-American Felix Mattei during the late 19th century, and a social center frequented by the likes of Bing Crosby and Clark Gable, Mattei’s Tavern is now one of the most familiar historic sites in the Santa Ynez Valley. Its romantic heritage is revealed through the gabled buildings and pastoral surroundings, and its old-world charm is palpable. The property has served as a gathering place, bringing together loved ones and strangers alike, ever since. For over 125 years, The Bungalows have provided sanctuary for those seeking the tranquility and adventure of California’s Central Coast.

Stay in a charming one-bedroom 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 jumping off 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!

Property Reviews


"This is our second visit to the rental and we absolutely loved it even more than the first! The peace and serenity on the hilltop truly rejuvenated us! Thank you for being so welcoming!"


"Our family had a perfect weekend together! Such a gorgeous house and views are spectacular. Thank you!"


"Really stunning home! We also made friends with the deer and had a wonderful time admiring the views out back. We also particularly enjoyed your indoor grill and made some great dinners here. Kindly thanks from Philadelphia, Pa!"


"Spectacular view, wonderful amenities, and a great property management company to work with!"


“Good location, close to Solvang. Attractive, comfortable ranch house-good swimming pool which kids enjoyed. ”


"Wow! This was amazing, what a dream home! We felt at home instantly, The yard, the pool, the bocce ball court, the sunset, all just magical! Thank you!"


"This is my second solo trip to Santa Ynez! My favorite to recharge as a single mom. I loved this little studio and thank you so much for the privacy. I will be back!"


“The Farmhouse at La Purisima was perfect for our weekend. All the amenities were readily available and the place was nice and clean. It is the only house on the golf course and a little awkwardly located, but everything is easily drivable. If you do golf, this place is perfect for a weekend trip and if you don’t, there are plenty of great wineries nearby.”


“Amazing place. House and grounds couldn't have been better and the proximity to Los Olivos made for a perfect wine tasting weekend. Couldn't be a better place to relax with friends.”


“Beautiful, spacious property. Short driving distance to many wineries and good restaurants. We had 14 in our party, but the size of the property did not make it feel cramped at all.”


“We celebrated my mom's 70th birthday by bringing our families together in this AMAZING home!! The first thing that will take your breath away is the view! My young sons (5 and 7) were in heaven with the Alpacas and chickens! The game room and tennis courts were also so fantastic!! The inside of the home is meticulously clean and well decorated--you feel like you are really on vacation!! We enjoyed the location because we were so close to wineries and cute towns for coffee in the morning and dinner at night bit you do not need to go anywhere because the home has so much to offer! We loved cooking in the beautiful and cozy kitchen and making smores in the fire pit!! I highly recommend this home for a great and relaxing get away that is good for adults and children!!”


“ The Left Hand Ranch was truly a special property - it surpasses our expectations for we will definitely be back. The Staff at SYVR were excellent, especially Ashley and all directions, instructions were very easy to understand. Can’t wait to get back to the SY Valley!”


“This house is adorable, full of character and in an incredibly beautiful setting. The beds are comfortable and the rooms have enough space. We had a group of 10 people and it was more than enough space. We had a relaxing enjoyable weekend.”


“Awesome stay. Amazing spot. Great girls’ weekend away for all of us. The grounds were spectacular and beautiful. The rooms and the kitchen were wonderful. The pool was a great place to relax after a long day of wine tasting.”


“My group had a wonderful time at this colorful dream home! It was beautiful, clean, and so nicely decorated! It felt like an experience you would only imagine, and even then, you couldn't really imagine it! So secluded and quiet, yet vibrant and very close to the Grand Avenue in Los Olivos and other wineries! It would be perfect if you brought bikes with you to cruise around the area! We loved it :)”


“We had the best time staying here to celebrate our wedding weekend. The online description was very accurate and the pictures showed just how stunning the house and the amenities really were. We had such a relaxing and amazing weekend. Ashley was extremely helpful and communicative. She made everything a breeze and I didn't have to stress at all. She was also very speedy to respond to all of my messages. Juan, the onsite property manager, was super helpful and walked us through how to use all the wonderful amenities...including the amazing spa and fire pit! All around it was an incredible experience and we would recommend to anyone!!”


“We had an amazing weekend getaway. The house is stylish and fully stocked with everything you need! Highly recommend this house!”

Jim & Lisa

"We came up from Huntington Beach to celebrate our 22nd anniversary and had a great time. This property is beautiful and it provided a true escape from the busy city life. Sorry we didn't meet the owners, but we are very thankful that you opened up your home to us."


“The Jacobson Farm is very cute. The rooms are spacious and provide a lot of storage. The property managers were very responsive. The location is great, very close to Los Olivos and wineries. I would recommend to anyone looking for a girls weekend getaway or change of pace.”


“Cool house with a spectacular view. Stargazing at night from the jacuzzi was a treat as well. If you’re looking for a quiet and private escape from the world then here it is...just you and nature. Master suite was spacious and the bed very comfortable.  Appreciated the easy “check-in”. It was nice to not have to meet anyone, just pulled in and started relaxing. Overall, a cool spot and perfect getaway from hectic LA life.”


“This place is very aesthetically pleasing. The home is breathtaking with all its decor and layout. There's one large main home with many sitting/living room areas, a large kitchen and two dinning areas. The master bed/bath is VERY spacious and beautiful, we were unable to use the fireplace during our stay, but it would've been the icing on the cake. The other houses are smaller with beds/baths and continued decor, able to host large groups. The outdoor space was great to enjoy, we didn't get to use the pool, due to a very cold weekend. However, we do wish we would've know it was heated, but unfortunately had to give notice in advance. This place is perfect for a group winery stay and Ashley was helpful with local recommendations and communication.”


“Absolutely stunning property. Plenty of space. Luxurious stay. Very impressive and worth the price.”


"Our weekend turned out to be more wonderful than any of us could have envisioned. We had glorious weather for the New Year’s Day wedding (its always warm and sunny in southern CA on January 1!). Our stay at Goodgame Ranch was the perfect home for our family weekend in Los Olivos. The home is so warm and welcoming. We loved looking the family pictures. The guest house was a perfect spot for our grandchildren to ‘chill out’. They loved being able to have their own place to ‘chill’ during the day! And the grounds was our 11 year old grandsons dream come true! He had so much fun ‘exploring’ and running wild! We all live in neighborhoods so the expanses of the ranch really delighted him! We saw the most beautiful sunset on New Years evening! It’s was the perfect end to a amazing weekend for all of us and a wonderful start for Luke and Kamele and their new life together! Please let the Goodgame’s know how much we enjoyed their home and we look forward to visiting again!"


“We rented Rancho de los Colorés with a group of friends/family. It was such an incredible experience. The property is quite simply magnificent. So quiet and relaxing, we barely left our entire stay. There was plenty of room for our group of 12. My only complaint is that we couldn’t stay longer! Thank you Ashley and Mark for being so helpful and communicative. We can’t wait to come stay at Rancho de los Colores again one day soon!”

Michael & Andrea

"Many thanks for a lovely stay in your beautiful "valley" rental. It was just what the doctor ordered for us Canadians, who are facing -25 below weather back home in Toronto! It was the peaceful interlude we needed to say goodbye to an active 2017 and usher in a New Year! All the best in 2018!"

Patrick Bardsley

"World class property! Our group of 10 couples and 5 kids had an absolute blast at Folded Hills Ranch thanks to Santa Ynez Vacation Rentals and the property managers and owners!! If 6 stars were available, they earned them all."


"It was so fun! Too short in fact! The deer were beautiful. We saw many of them and were greeted by them after going to the supermarket. We respected the deer and took videos of them. My parents loved the wine tasting and the wonderful Santa Ynez guest book. I love the upstairs little area, the clean rooms, outdoor area's and of course the pool toy flamingo! This was a wonderful experience and thank you for sharing it with us!"

Nicole & Brian

"Thank you for such an amazing place to get away from life. So peaceful & relaxing!! Perfect getaway!"


"This could be our go to spot for when we come to Santa Barbara wine country... -Literally my husband's words as we were packing up the car. Great location on the golf course! Awesome grill and Sonos speakers! What more can a family ask for? Thanks for the digs. We will be back!"

Yvonne and Mark

"Casa de la Vista is a dream...! We loved every minute of our stay in thishome. So much to do just within the home with the hot tub, game room, fire pit, and only a 5 minute drive from Solvang! Oh yeah! Beautiful views and Alpaca in the yard. Absolutely wonderful! We'll be back!"


"My "stay 39" with the BEST friends a girl could ask for was an absolute dream come true. My wonderful husband Larry hit a total home run when he chose this beautiful place to remind that I'm no just "mommy," but also Melanie. I will never forget how loved I feel at this moment for the rest of my life."


"The most beautiful oasis for our family! Every aspect of our stay has been wonderful! The staff, property, every comfort imaginable! It is hard to say goodbye. Thank you SYVR for offering such a majestic home for our family to enjoy!"


"This house is amazing! Clean rooms and amazing outdoors area. We had so much fun. I can't wait to come again. Oh and awesome view!"


"What an amazing house! Greeted by deer as we arrived. Spacious house with views that were beyond our expectations. Jacuzzi and Bocce Ball on lighted court....Good times and memories! Can't wait to return to idyllic house!"

Rana L.

"Thank you for the beautiful and tranquil stay! We were here to attend a UCSB graduation, but wanted to be away from SB. This was perfect for my husband and I. The kitchenette came in handy for storing snacks. The amenities/toiletries smelled wonderful. We requested an iron in advance of our arrival and found a mini steamer that worked well. We look forward to another visit in Santa Ynez Valley."

Jim G.

"Our family stayed at Rancho de los Colores from May 5-7, 2017. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the stay at the Rancho. It is a very beautiful hacienda from the early days of California. There are numerous amenities that compare well with resort hotels. Perfect choice for 8-12 adults or a family of the same size. Secluded yet close to all Santa Ynez Valley attractions. We do recommend that future travelers consider this Rancho for their stay in the valley. We would certainly rent it again!"

Jeffrey K.

"We booked the Goodgame Ranch to accommodate 9 adults for our wives 50th birthday celebration. The ease of booking the Ranch was incredible. The house, guest house, and property are absolutely stunning. We were all amazed at how beautiful and well-kept everything is. The house is so inviting and exudes warmth as soon as you enter. It was the perfect place to return to after wine tasting and sight-seeing. The location put us in close proximity to everything we had planned out. Thank you SYVR for this wonderful weekend."

Amazing Ranch!

"We enjoyed a wonderful two night stay at this amazing ranch! We so enjoyed the house, views, activities, and food with our lifetime friends. Thank you for opening your home to us for a Memorial Day weekend retreat."

Beautiful and Welcoming!

"Thank you for sharing your beautiful and welcoming place. Activity when you want it or just sit and relax."

Loved having space to entertain!

"This is our second trip up here and couldn't be happier! We loved having space to entertain, share stories and open a great bottle of wine. We loved the pizza oven! It is such a great place for a stay-cation!"

Outstanding Setting and Home!

"Outstanding setting and home! Lived up to the pictures and really found everything to exceed expectations."

Exceeded all exceptions and MORE!!!

"We had a girls weekend and rented two of the units. They were so clean and new feeling!! There were 12 of us ladies and we had so much space and all felt cozy. The beds we so comfy and we all had room in bathrooms to get ready. Loved being walking distance to everything in Solvang. When we first arrived and filled the frig with food we noticed a small leak in the freezer, so we called right way. Within 15/20 minutes we had a very nice gentlemen come look at it and they had someone out right away to fix the issue, and the frig worked perfect the rest of the weekend. I would stay at this place again and again! Cant wait to visit Solvang again and come back to Copenhagen Court. Thanks guys for the awesome place."


"I stayed with my 4 siblings this weekend, Friday and Saturday. What an amazing surprise we had on the property. Everything was perfect. Each detail of decoration so creative and appropriate to the area. A western paradise! The owners were so friendly and helpful. We would love to return. We forgot to sign the guestbook so please let the owners know from us how great our stay was!!!"


"We had a wonderful weekend at Estelle Ranch with 5 other couples. Even though it was cold and rainy most of the weekend, the house was warm and cozy with a great fireplace and room for all 12 of us. The views are AMAZING and the location is perfect for so many activities in Los Olivos and Santa Ynez. We would love to come back during the summer to truly take advantage of the home and property."

Tom and Eva

"What a phenomenal 5 nights we spent in this lovely home nestled on a hill overlooking Los Olivos with a stunning mountain range serving as your backyard neighbor. I feared the pictures would be nicer than the real thing. In fact the pictures, while lovely, don't do the property justice. It simply must be seen and experienced to get the full effect. The staff was quick to answer our voice mail messages asking for help with proper operation of a couple of house appliances. The neighbors were friendly. The property landscape was nearly maintained. The backyard deck was a perfect place to enjoy morning coffee and evening cocktails. I've already inquired about renting again in spring of 2018. Want more family members to experience what we did. What a great way to start 2017. Thank you Santa Ynez vacation rentals!"


"This house is comfy and spacious. Mark, the property manager, is responsive and tries to help in every way. I asked for placemats and more dish towels and he went shopping for me! A great family vacation property".


"Our Stay Could Not Have Been Better! Our son and his fiancée were married in the Valley in December, so we rented the Royal Oaks Ranch to host our rehearsal dinner, and to accommodate some of our guests and family. It was perfect! When we arrived we were thrilled to discover that the house has been beautifully decorated for the holiday. Everything was in perfect, working order, and Juan took careful time to walk us through all of the details of the house. Our event was a huge success, with happy guests relaxing and enjoying both inside and outside space. We received lovely, complimentary notes about the evening for days to follow. The house and the grounds are truly lovely - a great location for a group get together, wine-tasting weekend, or celebration in the Santa Ynez Valley. Thank you Mark and all for an unforgettable experience."


"To celebrate hubby's 50th, we decided to surprise him with a trip to Santa Ynez, CA. It was the perfect location for both our Northern California and Southern California family members to meet up. It's not often a property is beautifully decorated yet practical for a family with kids, I'm still in awe with the attention to all the details to make sure guests were more than comfortable. Although the on-line pictures of the property are just beautiful, we didn't quite grasp how magical it really was until we experienced it. Thanks so much for making hubby's birthday weekend memorable!"


"Our recent stay at Rancho Santuario exceeded all of our expectations. The home and property are beautiful! The setting is private and down a long gated driveway. From the moment you enter you feel you have arrived somewhere very special. The home is warm and spacious. The attention to details throughout is impressive. Great care has been taken to make sure guests will be comfortable here. The setting is elevated and has incredible mountain views. Any time of year would be fabulous to experience a stay at this property and I can’t wait to come back again!"
