This country ranch is located in the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley. This valley is unique because of its moderate climate, fantastic scenery and extraordinary wine. Wonderful location to enjoy the valley!

Our ranch house is situated on 10 acres offering magnificent views of the valley and foothills. The property, surrounded by vineyards and Arabian horse farms, is a magical place to unwind and spend time with your closest friends and loved ones.

Our home is furnished with comfort in mind with something to offer everyone. The kitchen is well-equipped for all your gourmet cooking needs. The dining area seats large groups and families comfortably. Our living room has a cozy fireplace with satellite TV, stereo system, and a great selection of movies, music and books. There is a recreation room with a bar, card table and Foosball table.

Outdoors there are several patio areas with fire pits for good conversation, hammocks for relaxing and reading a good book, gas and charcoal BBQ grills, and regulation bocce ball court for friendly competition.

A typical day might include a morning hike or countryside bike ride, a picnic lunch in an idyllic setting at one of the wineries, some wine tasting in the tasting rooms, & then back to the ranch for a sunset bocce ball tournament. The day concludes with an evening BBQ while unwinding with a glass of one of your amazing wine purchases.

The Santa Ynez Valley is surrounded by the Santa Ynez and San Rafael Mountains with the Santa Ynez River flowing through it. This area provides a setting for a wide variety of outdoor activities such as biking, hiking, golf, fishing, and horseback riding. The small communities located here have many unique local restaurants, art galleries, boutique shops and, of course, vineyards and wineries. With all that the Santa Ynez Valley has to offer, you are guaranteed to have a fabulous vacation!

                                                              My family stayed at this "Amazing 10 acre ranch" for the weekend during the double century bike race in March 2018, and had a blast!

                                                              We all felt comfortable on the very first day, totally enjoyed all this home/game room and property had to offer.

                                                              My adult kids and grandchildren had an awesome time using the game room.

                                                              Were definitly coming back to stay here again!

                                                              We enjoyed the property. It worked well for us.

                                                              William L.Piedmont, CA

                                                              We had a few challenges: 1) Hwy 101 was closed driving up from LA, so we went I-5, SR 166 and down SR 101 fro Sant Maria; 2) There was some smoke and haze, particularly the first day but not enough to dampen our spirits; and 3) We could see the picture but never could get the sound on the TV to work. Otherwise, the house worked out great.

                                                              Happy Holidays,


                                                              A great house in the valley

                                                              This was our third visit to this ranch. We once again had a great time. The house has plenty of space and a bunch of games. Thanks!

                                                              Great location

                                                              Great quiet location. Perfect converted garage into a game room. Easy access to the wineries.

                                                              Perfect place for extended family to stay and enjoy!

                                                              My siblings & I were in Santa Ynez for a family wedding. We decided to stay together and found this property on VRBO. It was absolutely perfect. The location, the grounds, the home are all just amazing. Having spent a few times now at different VRBO homes, I can honestly this was the best property I've experienced thus far.

                                                              The home is very well equipped and very clean. We BBQ'd the first night and so appreciated a really good grill. The game room in the converted garage was so much fun. The grounds are beautiful; quite rustic and peaceful.

                                                              The owner was pleasant and responsive when asked if we could have a slightly later check out time. All in all an excellent stay as well as good value.

                                                              Great property.

                                                              Great place to spend time with your family. Very spacious, clean and in an excellent location. Will definitely be back
