The PlaceInvaders Roadhouse is an Old West relic built in 1882, updated and furnished with the sensibilities of the modern wine traveler in mind. We're centrally located in the Santa Ynez Valley, near some of the greatest vineyards in the area, and at the base of some twisty-turny biking roads that reward with amazing views.
Expert Airbnb travelers ourselves, we've thought of everything to make your stay effortless, comfortable, and memorable.
The Green Room is a large upstairs bedroom with a comfy queen bed and south-facing views of the hills around Los Alamos. A 50" TV with Dish cable, Wi-Fi, a mini fridge, and a cozy reading nook will keep you entertained on breaks from wine tasting or exploring our little Western town.
The comfortable, luxury bathroom--with a vintage clawfoot tub, super soft towels and a heated towel rack--is shared with guests in the Gold Room, or private if the Gold Room is vacant during your stay.
Your room is private and the closet locks for your security. The windows are frosted with privacy glass so you can wake up to the sun without making eye contact with the neighbors. The blackout shade and curtains can keep it dark for those who like to wake with their own alarm clock on vacation.
The rest of our home is yours to relax in, as well. We have great outdoor spaces including a fire pit, side patio dining area, and the Spirit Sanctuary, a chill out space with a dart board and speaker. Our comfy living room has a large couch, 55" TV and gas fireplace.
Coffee and tea are available every morning in the dining room. Our kitchen is well-equipped, though we ask that you check with us in advance if you want to do any cooking beyond simply heating something up. There is a fridge in your room, so you can keep any leftovers from the amazing restaurants of Los Alamos there!
Totally variable. We live and work here full time, but also travel quite often.
We work from home when we are here, so expect us to be around a lot of the time. We love to meet our guests, and are happy to give tips about local restaurants and wineries. We're also happy to have you come and go on your own and will give you your space. There's always french press coffee in the morning when we're here, or a Keurig when we are away.
On the other hand, the house is pretty automated and easily accessible, so if we are traveling you will have no problems. You may even have the whole place to yourselves, if there aren't guests in our Gold Room. We are always just a text away to answer questions, and have a local property manager who is very quick to answer.

Small print (feel free to ignore, potential and returning guests!): For Santa Barbara county tax purposes, $80 from each reservation goes to a cleaning fee. The cleaning fee is baked into the price you pay, instead of surprising you after your search with a higher fee, we keep it simple for you - no extra fees.
There is one security camera set up in a public area of our home. It's for your safety and ours and should not be disconnected or obstructed during your stay. There are no other cameras anywhere in the home.
Our home is not air conditioned, but there are fans available, and it cools down considerably at night, even on hot days.
If you accidentally leave behind any of your belongings, we are happy to send in the mail, we just ask that you cover shipping, plus $10. We can't believe how often that happens!

We're the co-founders of a dining series called PlaceInvaders. We travel the country, hosting pop-up dinners in interesting spaces. We love to explore new cities, meet interesting people, and try tasty new food.
We just moved into an 1880's farm house in charming Los Alamos, California, with two rooms available for overnight stays.
If we're interested in working with you for an event, we will be sure to be specific in our request. For most of our bookings, we are just passing through.
