About Christie Hopper

We moved to Santa Ynez in February of 2012. We used to live in Santa Barbara. My Husband, Myself and my Mother moved in together after my Dad passed away. We bought this nice house with some acreage and it came with this nice guest house which we decided to set up as a vacation rental.

Christie Hopper purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Christie Hopper chose Santa Ynez

We really like this area because it is a small community and feels like a town from 50 years ago where times were not so hectic. It's a nice slow pace here.

What makes this cottage unique

We love our property because of the country feel, the spacious lawn and the feeling of being surrounded by trees and a beautiful view of the mountains. Lots of nature around too. Squirrels & birds, just saw a family of Quail's crossing the road the other day, so cute!

Just Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

What a great experience! I couldn't have found a better place. Peaceful, private, and absolutely charming. Far enough away from the hustle and bustle of Solvang, but close enough to be practically staying in town anyway. The hosts are so nice and welcoming. I feel like I've made new friends. I can't recommend this place highly enough!

Thank you...Tricia J.

We had a nice, peaceful stay at the Birdnest

  • 5 of 5

Super clean and fresh, the cottage was cozy without feeling cramped. We had a very comfortable stay there, and the hosts are friendly and helpful, and seem to enjoy meeting new guests. The neighborhood is very quiet but not far from Solvang and a health food store.

Perfect Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the Cottage to attend a wedding in Los Olivos. The Cottage was perfect for our needs. The area is beautiful and perfect for an early AM jog. Christine, the host, could not have been more friendly and accommodating. She and her husband have put in a ton of love and care into their home and landscaping. We brought our little 13 yr old mutt terrier with us and Christine watched her while we explored nearby Solvang (LOVELY) and attended the wedding. We will definitely be back!!! Highly recommend!!!

Relaxing Retreat

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful spot in a wonderful area! The cottage itself feels warm and has everything you'd need for a brief stay. Christie was super hospitable, and kindly kept an eye on our dogs who swiftly became part of the dog pack. We had a great stay and would definitely recommend it.

Located 5 minutes from Solvang. A quaint Danish town. Lots of shops, restaurants and great bakery's. Also many winery's in the vicinity that offer tours of their operations and wine tasting. Also soar high in the sky in a Glider plane, shows off the beautiful landscape of the Santa Ynez valley from a birds point of view. If you like night time action the Chumash Casino offers gambling and great concerts. Past performers include; Kenny Loggins, Huey Lewis & the News, Fleetwood Mac, LeAnn Rimes. Usually a show every Thursday evening.
