About Lisa and Steve Cox

We live in Seattle, love to golf, and wanted a place to escape the gray and rainy times in Seattle. We happened on to the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley, and fell in love.

Lisa and Steve Cox purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Lisa and Steve Cox chose Central Coast

A good walking score is the most important thing to us. We wanted to be close in to town. Just steps to wonderful bakeries, restaurants, shops and nightlife. Foodies will love it here, we sure do! Car trips to the beach, SLO, Santa Barbara and more....tons of hiking and biking options too!

What makes this apartment unique

The Santa Barbara Airport could not be any easier to fly into...then only rent a car, and you are in The Valley within 35-30 minutes. Easy to find, but worlds away.

Very conveniently and centrally located and short walk to town. Good value for dollar.

  • 4 of 5

The condo is clean and comfortable and the owner Lisa Cox is very responsive and good to deal with. The condo is best suited for 2 couples or 4 friends wanting to spend some time in the Santa Ynez Valley at a reasonable cost. It is also near excellent golf courses.

Peace and quiet, with the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here, and it truly was a retreat. All the comforts of home, in a very quiet location with a lovely view of trees and mountains. We particularly enjoyed having a sliding door and balcony off the living room, as it let it in a wonderfully refreshing breeze. We would happily return, and would definitely recommend friends & family to stay here. Also, Lisa was very responsive and accommodating, and a pleasure to communicate with. If you are looking for a place that is very conveniently located but so comfortable and relaxing that you may never want to leave, this is the place!

Solvang retreat

  • 5 of 5

Lisa and Steve have provided a beautiful, comfortable, homey, clean and modern condo in the Solvang area. What a treat it was to stay here! The condo was lovely and the surrounding area was beautiful. Solvang is a place that is good for visitors as long as you are out and about there during the day. It's fairly sleepy at night. However, we were primarily there to hike and enjoy the outdoors. The neighborhood is quiet and the neighbors are kind. We did many day trips to go hiking. I would highly recommend staying here. Lisa and Steve provided great directions and were very easy to communicate with. A great experience all around.

In the Heart of Solvang, Wine Country Retreat Condo

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful two weeks in this lovely, comfortable condo. The accommodations and location were perfect for us. Lisa had all the information and instructions we needed to us before we arrived. Lots to see, do, and travel to. Located on a nicely quiet street and an easy walk right up to the Solvang main street. Plus, easy travel to a lot of great spots: 45 minutes to Santa Barbara, 2 hours to both Hearst Castle and Reagan Library, and of course quick and easy access to lots of neighboring wineries and drives through the countryside. We hope to get back there again someday and highly recommend this wonderful opportunity to others!

Loved this condo from day one- had a 31 day visit.

Solvang is a darling town and the Santa Ynez area is beautiful with plenty of activities to see and do. It is also an easy drive to beaches.

The condo is tastefully decorated, clean, and well cared for. I do a lot of home cooking and had all the kitchen gadgets needed- loved the weekly farmers market.

Lisa was extremely helpful and provided detailed instructions and a great resource for the area.

The neighbors and neighborhood was nice and an easy walk to and around town.

We had 2 groups of family visit who too loved the condo.

We could not have asked for a better experience at this condo or in the overwhelmingly beautiful Santa Ynez valley.
