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 condo in 2013

Why Lisa and Steve Cox chose Solvang

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 condo 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.

A wonderful hideaway in the heart of Solvang

  • 5 of 5

It is rare these days to find a property that exceeds expectations, but this property did just that. Everything was as described and better. The location is unbeatable, a short walk to the main downtown area in the picturesque town of Solvang.

For a 3 level home, the property felt spacious and comfy. The appliances were well maintained and plentiful. Having a washer and dryer was a huge plus.

The yards were very well kept with gardeners coming once a week to maintenance the yards and grounds. The privacy afforded by the surrounding trees and hedges made us feel like we had our own shangri la in Wine Country.

Lisa and Steve were wonderful and they made the entire experience stress free. We never had any issues but it was comforting to know that they were only a phone call away. All and all it was an amazing experience that we look forward to repeating next year. Thanks Lisa and Steve, you are the best!

Solvang is Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Solvang. The condo was clean and roomy and loved all the closet space to hide empty suitcases and my overpacked wardrobe! Spacious master bath really nice as well.

There are several levels so if very tired legs might not be the best spot for you. The farm nearby had some animal noises at times but the sunset view from the deck is really lovely!

The kitchen is lovely and well equipped but lots of suggestions left in folder to eat! Our favorite nearby spot was "Eats" on Industrial Way in Buelton and can bring your own wine, though they do serve beer and some wine!

Our favorite winery was Presqu'ile Winery in Santa Maria. But so many and the countryside was so beautiful in March with the earlier rains preparing Spring with lush greenery.

Best part was walking distance to town and several nearby golf courses that were reasonably priced to golf!

Solvang is worth the trip. Week-ends town is busy so more relaxing during the week and look for mid week special Happy Hours at some of the finer restaurants!

Enjoy Solvang! We did!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay. Will have to try that winery. There are so many, we have not seen even half of them and we have owned the condo for 5 years. We love Industrial Eats. We hope you will come again! Lisa and Steve Cox

A great stay at the Cox's condo in Solvang!

  • 5 of 5

Lisa and Steve have a convenient, more than adequately furnished, comfortable condo. Everything is easy for a long stay. Well stocked kitchen with easy to use appliances and supplies. There is privately designated parking for the unit and it is located on a cul de sac which cuts down on the traffic. You realize quickly that the location makes all major routes, the communities of Solvang, Buellton, Los Olivos and Santa Ynez and their respective shopping, dining and winery/tasting rooms very accessible. Solvang can be bustling on weekends and quiet on weekdays...being able to walk from the condo throughout the town is perfect regardless of the day! I highly recommend a stay here!

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.
