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.

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.

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.
