Property description

Cozy two bedroom vacation rental within walking distance of the historic town of Santa Ynez. Embraced by a majestic California Oak, this second floor apartment has one bedroom with a queen-sized bed, one bedroom with a double bed, one bathroom, a living room with a convertible bed (double) and a full kitchen. The beautiful Santa Ynez Valley is the gateway to the Santa Barbara Wine Country, home to over 60 vineyards and wineries. The Santa Ynez Valley was the location for the filming of the Academy Award winning movie Sideways, and the wineries and restaurants featured in the movie make great destinations. Other sites of interest include the Danish Village of Solvang, the Chumash Casino, Cachuma Lake, historic landmarks, outdoor theatre, art galleries, lavender farms, fruit orchards, and miniature horse ranches. In addition, the lovely beach town of Santa Barbara is only a 35 minute drive (along the Pacific Coast or through Los Padres National Forest).

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: My wife Sue and I and our son Sajan have enjoyed living in the Santa Ynez Valley for the past 15 years. It is a very unique and calming environment in comparison to the city life in California. Come visit us and find out for yourself.

Why the Owner Chose Santa Ynez:
We offer a unique blend of comfort, cleanliness and a price that will not break your wallet. Look at our reviews if you don't believe me. Give us a try and I think you will be happy you did.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
We also offer our guests who visit us the unique opportunity to rent our 2001 BMW 330ci convertible for their stay. We arrange that through a service called Relay Rides. Please inquire with us further if you are interested in learning more about that service.
