FAQs


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.

Q: Can I bring in my own vendors?

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.
