Santa Ynez house description
Quail Casa, a charming and private Santa Fe inspired cottage nestled in an oak grove on 22 private acres in spectacular Ballard Canyon. Adjacent to the acclaimed Rusack Vineyard (Wrigley) and just off Ballard Canyon Road. This property is close to all of the top wineries and steps from the Amgen tour time trial routes featuring top cyclists, (Tour De France). Take a break from wine tasting and visit the Danish Village of Solvang, 3 minutes away or the quaint art village of Los Olivos, 5 minutes away.
Tastefully decorated with all the comforts of home. Bedrooms have Vintage Washed Belgium Linen bedding with plush pillow top mattresses . Each bedroom has french doors that lead to the lilac and rosemary garden pathways. Take a small hike to the top of the hill to see the spectacular views of the canyon.
Kitchen has been fully stocked with anything you will need for a night of entertaining. French doors open up to the patio area that has a grill, fire pit and patio furniture. Sit back and relax under the stars with your favorite wine you have chosen from a day of wine tasting.
In the morning, enjoy your coffee in the country setting watching the Quail and the Bunnies roam around. You will feel miles away from the hustle and bustle yet close to everything that you visit Santa Barbara wine country for.
No detail has been overlooked, with decorator touches that make you feel at home from the moment you arrive. There is also a small room not picture that is off the master where you could put a portable crib. There is also a desk and chair in the room if you feel inspired to write the next big hit.

We had the best time staying at your charming home. It was so peaceful and relaxing. Great location to Solvang and close to Santa Barbara. Your home is well equipped with everything we needed for our week long getaway. Thank you again and we would love to stay here on our next visit. I will be recommending your home to all my friends that are visiting Santa Barbara/Solvang area.

On behalf of our group that had the pleasure of visiting Solvang and staying at the "Quail Casa", I wanted to thank you so much. The house was absolutley amazing and the weekend was literally perfect. I definitely plan to re-visit. Your house is so peaceful with its remote location, but close proximity to vineyards... especially Rusack...makes it the absolute ideal getaway. It is a weekend I will never forget and appreciate you letting us share your home. I will definitely return to Solvang and when I do ,would love to rent the "Quail Casa" again.

My sister and I thoroughly enjoyed this comfortable and clean home with scenic views of the beautiful oak trees. Everything was provided and well stocked for our stay including the patio area. So nice to be outdoors. It was a lovely place to stay. Will recommend this home to friends or anyone staying in this area.

Loved it!!! Close to Solvang, Los Olivos, Santa Ynez and Ballard all charming little towns. Then back to Quail Casa to enjoy all the comforts of home. Relax outside with beautiful oak trees and natural surroundings. So much better than a motel room. Definitely going again.
