About the property

The guest cottage is set up for two adults, sorry no children. The one bedroom guest cottage is approximately 750sf. with 2 separate sleeping areas. One is in the bedroom with a full size bed and the other is located in the living room. It is a cubby hole that has a queen size mattress in it. It is very cozy!

During the day we have free roaming chickens, 6 friendly geese and a big tortoise that you may encounter. Everyone is friendly. We let them out about 7am and they go to bed at dusk. The hens can make noise when laying an egg. Their new coop is out in our field near our barn. The rooster sleep area is insulated but it is possible to hear our roosters or any of the neighbors. This is the country! We also have 2 pygmy goats and 4 small dogs under 20 pounds. The main house with two adults and the 4 dogs is located on the same property. The garage is approximately 50ft from cottage and the house is attached going the other direction.

Please help us conserve resources and turn lights out when not home

I should not have to say this but due to a few folks not being respectful and taking care of our place I have to...

This is our home, not motel 6, please be respectful of it and take care of it and keep it tidy. Your cleaning fee is for the bedding, linens and sanitizing the bathroom, the basics. You need to wash your own dishes and keep the place neat. I know for 99% of the people it is common sense and I appreciate that. This is just for those few who need it spelled out for them..

Bookings canceled at least 60 days before the start of the stay will receive a 100% refund.

Bookings canceled at least 30 days before the start of the stay will receive a 50% refund.

Bookings canceled 30 days or less before the start of the stay are non refundable. Booking fees are at the discrepancy of VRBO

About Kris

We love animals and love to travel! We moved to the country from the big city and are enjoying this new life! Lots of projects but we enjoy them! We are hoping to become self sustainable at some point. We are a work in progress!!

Why Kris chose Santa Ynez

You get a true farm experience! You can visit with the animals and feed them if you like! Lots of great wineries and cycling areas near by. We are in a quiet area. The cottage is separate enough where you have your own privacy.

What makes this cottage unique

Great backyard with patio and grill! Lots of animals you can visit with including a 90 pound tortoise! Great price too!!

Magic!

  • 5 of 5

Kris and Francisco were perfect hosts, and we couldn't have asked for a better spot to enjoy our vacation in wine country. The location, the vibe and feel of the house, the comfort and quiet was exactly our style. We loved all the animals and the opportunity to feed the birds! Everything we wanted and needed was a short drive, but still felt like we were secluded and away from it all. We would definitely recommend the house to anyone else, and would stay there again!

Weekend in the Country

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at Kris' farm/ranch in Santa Ynez. Kris and her husband were wonderful hosts who made us feel very welcome, and were very accommodating to all of our questions and needs. Although my wife and I are "city" folks, we loved our time in our cottage surrounded by farm animals including dogs, chickens, geese, horses, and a giant tortoise. The cottage is very cozy and has just about everything you might need. Kris also provided coffee, tea, oatmeal, fresh milk, eggs, butter, and baked bread. Every morning breakfast was a treat. We also loved the location of the cottage. It was 5-10 minutes to Los Olivos, Santa Ynez, and Solvang. Wineries were only slightly farther. Lake Cachuma and Santa Barbara and its surrounding beaches are also within easy driving distances. Our getaway was a great break from the bustling Bay Area. We look forward to return for another stay if we have the opportunity.

Love it here!

My husband and I love staying in this guest cottage! It is cozy and comfortable. Kris and Francisco are excellent hosts. It's a wonderfully relaxing location, and we love getting to interact with all of the animals on the property. We liked the fresh eggs so much we bought some extras to take home with us. We look forward to coming back soon!
