Peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

We traveled with 6 couples to this wonderful house for a weekend getaway to wine country. The house easily accommodated our group and had all the amenities we needed, including an open kitchen and family room/dining room area for cooking and socializing. Stuart, the property manager, was very responsive and helpful with any questions we had.

Private and Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We take our family on vacation every year - 8 adults and a gaggle of 6 boys plus our youngest grandchild - a two-year-old little girl. Our boys range in age from four to seventeen, and this wonderful property and the surrounding area provided activities to interest every age. The little boys loved wandering the property, feeding the goats and chickens, and searching for miscellaneous wildlife. The bigger boys swam and lounged in hammocks, reading books and relaxing. The house provided plenty of room for all to feel comfortable while eating and sleeping. Solvang was adorable and close, and we took advantage of the nearby beaches and parks. The children also loved the ostrich farm at the end of the road, and we went to the zoo in Santa Barbara one day, which was delightful. It was a wonderful experience and everyone wants to go back!

Beautiful place

  • 4 of 5

Great setting, nice pool, could have had a few more directions on where supplies were. Cute animals on the property, dogs, chickens, goats, saw deer and squirrels. Big rooms, good beds. Pool bathroom was not clean, really nice jacuzzi. Solar Lighting on the steps down to pool would be nice. Lots of stairs, so may not be as good for people with limited mobility

Amazing multi-family retreat

  • 5 of 5

Stuart's home was well appointed, very relaxing and extremely accommodating for our weekend away with multiple families. The kids enjoyed the expansive property, beautifully maintained lawn and swimming pool. The adults loved the indoor/outdoor living, abundance of space and ability to create separation when needed.

This is a beautiful home that I'd both recommend and stay in again.

Great property for group gathering

  • 5 of 5

Such a great property! Worked wonderful for our group with several couples/kids. Bedrooms are far enough from each other so you have tons of privacy. Terrific main room with comfortable furniture and plenty of seating for everyone to watch the giant TV!! Some fun additions like the trampoline and 2 basketball goals along with playset gave the kids (and adults) plenty to do. Nicely stocked. Stu was super easy to work with and on-site staff very helpful and friendly. Just a few minutes from Solvang so you can head into the wineries or load up on groceries and never leave the property!!

Great house and staff

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. Beautiful ranch and super helpful folks that worked there to help with any issues. Would highly recommend it.

The only thing I wish they were clearer on is that the pool is not heated. (Even if you select the option to heat). The hot tub is heated, but not the main pool. Otherwise the place was perfect for us.
