Lovely Ballard home

  • 5 of 5

We used this home for a getaway with our adult children. It is very well stocked with anything you could possibly need and well located. The Ballard Inn (great dining) is but a few yards away. We had to reschedule due to some unforeseen issues and Henry was very easy to work with. We would definitely stay again!

Convenient location and fantastic back yard

  • 5 of 5

I was skeptical to reserve this property because they do not accept payment through VRBO but Henry was very responsive and easy to work with. He worked with me on payment and we confirmed the rental. We met his cleaning lady at the property to pick up keys and wow does she do a great job keeping this home in beautiful condition. The furnishings are unique and definitely a conversation piece. The best part of the home was the French doors leading to a private backyard. Unfortunately we didn't get to enjoy it due to cold weather but we all agreed we would come back another time to sit out back with a glass of wine.

A perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

Prior to this rental, my last couple of house rentals were sorely lacking - nothing in the kitchen, not enough bedding... so I completely overpacked for our girls' weekend getaway. Imagine my surprise when I arrived and toured the property with Leticia (who's super sweet!) - it had everything we needed! From sugar cubes for our coffee to wood for the firepit, Henry thinks of everything his guests may need for a relaxing and wonderful stay.

The house is perfectly appointed, and the right amount of space for the 6 of us to cook, eat, relax, and enjoy each other's company. And the LOCATION! We could walk to the wineries on Alamo Pindado, and everything you want to see is within a 5 minute drive.

We couldn't be happier with our stay, and hope to visit again the next time we're in the area. Thanks so much for a great home base!

Christmas in Santa Ynez Valley

  • 5 of 5

Our Group consisted of four adults and one teenager. The sleeping arrangements were perfect for us with our daughter using the twin that was in our room that also had a queen. My parents had their own room and bath at the other end of the house. The bathrooms were large with a nice offering of sample size shampoos and lotions. Dinning room had a large table to accommodate large gatherings. Kitchen was extremely well stocked, the only thing we couldn't find were steak knifes. We did buy a few miss matched ones at a thrift store and left them. The house was nicely decorated for Christmas including a tree and lights. My only complaint about the décor was the furniture in the living room looked attractive but was not very comfortable.

The back yard is large, private and full of unique and eclectic playful décor items hidden in the trees and bushes. One of my favorite memories is sitting in the backyard at night with the fire pit going and a big beautiful chandelier lit hanging from a old tree. We made friends with a black kitten who loved being around the fire pit. Plenty of red oak wood was available for the fire pit and live fire grill to cook on. The house is located in a very quiet area with a supermarket about 10 minutes driving distance. A miniature horse ranch just minutes away and a miniature donkey farm walking distance. A bottle of local Clairmont Farms lavender lotion in the bathroom prompted a short trip to the local farm to purchase my own along with pure oils. Chumash Casino is about 15 minutes away offering free play money to Los Angeles visitors who sign up for their playing club, I was given $100.00 in free slot play money (still Lost:( )

Owner Henry was quick to respond to any questions I had.

We would definitely recommend this house for a family or two couples looking for a nice getaway.

We arrived the Day after Christmas

Amazing Thanksgiving!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here last thanksgiving. It was great because we had every kitchen utensil we needed and were able to have a great thanksgiving dinner. The yard was so beautiful to sit in at night. There are wineries that are walking distance and also there is a cute miniature donkey farm that we walked to. I'd definitely stay here again!
