                        This property offers the WOW factor. We came for a family reunion/60th birthday party. This property offered something for everyone: pool and playground for children. Activities for the active ones: tennis and basketball. I brought all this equipment and never needed my tennis racket and balls. BTW - balls, tennis rackets and ball machine are all there. Even small tricycles for the toddlers. The exercise room was great! This house is equipped with every detail. The little ones loved retrieving fresh eggs from the chicken coup and contributing to our breakfast feasts. We never left the house to explore Solvang and all the wineries that are literally down the road. I suppose we will need to make another trip and excuse to re-visit this house. I was thrilled that the owner's allow for 2 night minimum. Owner's were very accommodating to allow our furry friends to join in the party (pet addendum - of course) The massage chair was a major hit that we had to use a sign-in sheet and time limit. Overall, wonderful home to enjoy family and friends. Priceless.

                        Exceeded our expectations on all counts... Comfort, luxury, amenities... Wish we'd had more time to take advantage of the home. Janet was so gracious and accommodating ... The gourmet chef's kitchen was a delight to cook in , so well stocked. Janet even put FRESH EGGS FROM THE CHICKEN COOP in the fridge for us! We had our annual girl's wine weekend here. The house easily accommodated the 11 of us. We hope to come back next year. Great for families and groups of friends or couples. This is a 5 star experience....

                        Double J Ranch is a gem! My husband (then fiancé) and I booked the property for our wedding weekend and had a small celebration with close friends and family. Everyone was blown away by the beauty of the ranch and we couldn't have asked for a better place. The pictures are accurate, but it all looks so much prettier in person with some stunning views. Janet (the owner) is very helpful and accommodating. She answers all emails promptly and even corresponded directly with our caterers to answer questions. She even offered to have her horses put out in the pasture near the driveway so our friends and family could enjoy them. The karaoke room was a BIG hit as was the tennis/basketball court. We were so pleased with everything and would definitely come back for another weekend. I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone looking for a fun and relaxing stay.

                        We brought our family here for a family reunion. The younger crowd enjoyed the karaoke. The very young crowd the play equipment. And all of us the pool, tennis and unbelievable kitchen. We'd love to come back again.

                        My wife and I stayed at the J&J Ranch with a few couples for 4 nights over the July 4th weekend. Much better then staying in a hotel! We had perfect weather and had a great time. The photos really do not do the property justice; the home is perfectly set up for entertaining with all the features you could want: kitchen is fully equipped, rooms are very large, lots of seating inside and out, great music system inside and out. We enjoyed the pool and tennis and the guest house was perfect for the younger adults. Huge home and property, lots of privacy. Grounds are beautiful; lots of lawn area to enjoy and the view from the patio is awesome. All enjoyed coffee in the morning on the patio and wine in the evening around the fire pit. A perfect home for relaxing; plan on cooking in, the kitchen is great and you will not want to leave. Very close to Solvang, Santa Ynez and all the wineries, but you will not want to leave!

                        My group of family and friends had the pleasure of visiting Double J ranch this past weekend. The only bad thing about the trip is that we had to leave.We seriously had so much fun we want to keep going back over and over again. The pictures do not do the property justice. It is much more spacious when you get there. The tennis court was by far our favorite part as we love playing. We set up a round robin tournament and everyone sat at the viewing area cheering for the people playing. SO MUCH FUN... Then at night it was all singing and fun in the karaoke room or out in the hot tub. We could not find one bad thing about the property or the overall experience. Janet is SUPER helpful and very good at communicating. I really hope we can go back there as soon as possible, but the word must be out because it looks like every weekend until September is booked. Hopefully we can get back soon. It is a dream house and you will not be disappointed by every fine detail put into the house. Thanks again Janet, we had so much fun, and the pictures will last a lifetime. P.S. It was for my wifes 40th birthday and we surprised her, it could not have gone better. PPS. We stayed at the house the entire trip, there is really no reason to leave, something new to do everyday and so relaxing, great views too!!!

                        This is the perfect place for a large active group looking for a place close to the wineries. There is so much to do at the house that you almost don't want to leave. The pool and hot tub are great for large groups and all of the other toys (Karaoke, basketball, tennis) are just as advertised. The property is actually bigger than it looks in the pictures. The kitchen can easily accommodate 12 people hanging around and cooking while the dining and living areas are huge as well. The house was also very clean and all of the features were easy to use. I will be back!

                        I cannot say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay at this home! Janet was so easy to coordinate with, gave great suggestions and made us feel very welcome. We had a group of adults and we never ran out of things to do on the property. Everything in the home is top of the line - it felt like we were staying in a 5 star hotel. We will definitely be coming back again next year!

                        Recommended for: Girls getaway, adventure seekers, age 55+, romantic getaway, families with young children, families with teenagers.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About the owner: We have offered our ranch to host family and friends to beautiful, relaxing, activity filled vacations. We have also hosted horse clinics, lectures, English and Western Summer Horse Camps. We are now offering our piece of Paradise for your enjoyment.

                      Why the Owner Chose Santa Ynez:
                      We chose The Santa Ynez Valley for the exquisite weather, scenery, and rural setting which reminds us most of Tuscany. It's the perfect place to keep our 5 horses and they love it here. We love the country and rural feeling with the convenience of a 30 minute drive to Santa Barbara beaches and only 90 minutes to Los Angeles.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
                      Our family is very active and we try to enjoy everything the ranch has to offer. We also like to unwind at the end of the day and relax in the hot tub while gazing at the star filled sky.
