  • Seriously, It Couldn't Have Been Better

    "Our little family does a lot of these 1-week stays at people's vacation homes, particularly to this area (Santa Ynez Valley), and I can honestly say this was probably the most perfect visit for our family (hubby, wife, and 3-year-old explorer) so far. First of all, if memory serves me correctly, this probably the least expensive option that I found in Santa Ynez, but that had nothing to do with the size and quality of the home. Upon my initial inquiry, Colin immediately got back to me and was very helpful and easygoing with the set process. It's a unique, private setting, yet still close and convenient to most areas of the Valley. Colin had the private gate open and was ready for us, and was just super, super nice right off the bat. He gave us a quick tour, and I can tell you it's a tremendous value for what you get. The 2 bedroom private residence is really clean, good sized, and very well appointed. It's a REAL 2-bedroom; not some scrunched up little converted version of one, and it's supplied with everything you need to have a smooth trip. The the grounds were a real highlight for us. We went swimming every day, and our little Tornado was just having so much fun terrorizing every nook and cranny of the 5-acre lot. But what really made the property special were the hosts, Colin and Rosi. We've met a lot of nice owners over the years, but these two were the first ones that I personally felt like I wanted to go out of my way to talk to and hang out with. I tend to want to just be left alone on our trips, but every time I saw Colin and/or Rosi it just made me smile. Don't get me wrong; they're not hovering over you and invading your space or something. They are just really, really nice, sweet people. I can't imagine anyone NOT liking them. If we stay in Santa Ynez again, there is no doubt we will be staying with them (if it's available, of course)."

  • Fabulous weekend in Santa Ynez

    "Amazing was the word that came to mind when I first found this property on line. Almost to good to be true. Absolutely Amazing when I drove up the driveway. As you enter from the country road on the right you are greeted by a horse and two goats (adorable, and we enjoyed feeding them each day). The house looms larger than ever as you approach. Beautiful manicured lawns and garden surround the property, with fabulous hill side views. The pool and spa sit toward the back of the property along side an adorable pool cottage. The interior of the house was decorated like something out of House Beautiful. Absolutely lovely, fully stocked with every thing one need. We had a large group of 14 and there was plenty of room for everyone. We spent a lovely days around the pool and had a family style dinner on the large patio outside. The next day we all enjoyed a wine tour of three local wineries with a lovely luncheon served under oak trees on a horse farm. A little pool time before heading out for a wonderful Italian dinner at Trattoria Gruppolo in town. We ended the night with a little dancing at the Maveric Saloon next door. It was easy to get cabs into town so no one had to drive. Dan and Annette are lovely friendly people that made sure everything was ready for us and made our stay very memorable . I would recommend this property highly."

  • Closest thing to paradise!

    "We were drawn to this property by the beautiful photos in the listing, but those photos don't do justice to what you find once you arrive at this slice of heaven. The owners are thorough, communication is great, and the home and surroundings are simply indescribable. Nothing is left to want. My wife and I spent eleven days in this outstanding home, and we hated to leave. We already can't wait for our next stay."

  • An Amazing Stay

    "The Casita is an amazing place- beautifully decorated, serene and impeccably kept. I stayed here for 6 weeks before moving into a long term rental in Santa Barbara and could not have asked for better hosts. Jeanne and Leo did everything to make me (and my dog) feel most comfortable. We loved every minute of our time there and gained wonderful friends!"
