Q: What are the Casitas Estate site fees/rental rates?
A: Our rates do vary depending on the size of your guest list and desired package (our packages are outlined under Packages & Rates). For specific information on The Casitas Estate site fees, please complete our Contact Us Form or give us a call at (805) 473‑1123 for package, prices & availability.
Q: What is included in the estate rental?
A: Our Perfect Day package, renting the estate for your wedding or reception, includes the use of both the designated indoor and the outdoor space of the Estate from Friday at 3PM until Sunday, at 12PM. We include a shuttle service to and from the destination for two hours at the start and end of the event from a local permitted park used for our events. Restrooms and a sunken dance floor on the back lawn are included. Use of our kitchen and dining room for use by your caterer for plating and serving is also included on the day of the event.
Q: What is required to reserve a date?
A: A $2,000 non-refundable deposit and signed contract will confirm that the date is yours for weddings. Alternatively, for the ‘Rent Just The Estate’ only package, a $1,000 non-refundable deposit is required to secure the entire estate.
Q: Am I required to have a wedding planner and/or coordinator?
A: Yes. We require you have a hired (professional) wedding planner and/or coordinator. Your wedding planner will ensure that your day goes as planned and exceeds your expectations for a flawless event.
Q: Until what time can music be played?
A: All music must end by 10PM for weddings, 9PM for rehearsal dinners held the night prior to the wedding.
Q: What is the rain plan?
A: While chances for rain are typically remote here in the Central Coast during our long wedding season, we do have lawn dimensions if a tent(s) was needed and we have comparative quotes that we can share. You would need to incur the cost of a tent from a rental company if warranted. We do work with several local rental companies that offer tent rentals if inclemental weather is forecasted for that day.
A: Yes! We do have a checklist that we coordinate with you listing those vendors to ensure that everything arrives and runs smoothly. For catering, we do require adequate staffing to clear and support your given wedding size–typically this is not an issue, but again we want to ensure a successful event you will be proud to hold here at the Estate.
Q: What are the requirements at the end of my event?
A: You are required to have a designated contact person that will be in charge of making sure everything is cleaned, trash removed, and removed from the grounds at the conclusion of the event. Often times this responsibility can be handled by the caterers, but please be sure to verify this with them and your wedding planner.
Q: Do you have ample electricity set up at your venue?
A: Yes, we have sockets located in each of our four ceremony and reception areas here on the Estate: Front Fountain Courtyard, Back Infinity Lawn, Vineyard Ceremony Vista Site, and pool area.
