About the property

Charming guest cottage in the heart of Santa Ynez Valley.

Charming guest cottage in the heart of Santa Ynez Valley. The one bdrm cottage is separate from the main house with a private patio located at the back of it. It is situated on 4 acres and shared with dogs goats, 6 friendly geese, 3 turkeys, chickens and a tortoise! Animal Lovers Welcome

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!

A Samsung 42" flat screen tv with Directv premium channels is provided for your viewing. A full bath with a shower and tub awaits you. There is also a workspace if you need to do some work while here. The place is airy and bright with lots of windows and doors to let in the natural light.

On the back of the cottage is a brick outdoor patio with BBQ, table & chairs and two lounge chairs. The patio faces a vegetable garden. 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.

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..

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 Central Coast

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!!

Perfect Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a wedding. It was perfect. We loved having our own little space and being able to enjoy all that St Ynez has to offer. We were able to walk to a neighborhood Winery where they took excellent care of us. Kris was an amazing host. Fresh eggs every morning and the most delicious bread upon arriving. The home was clean and had its own l quaint backyard to rest in the sun. The location was perfect and central to all of our needs. Can't say enough. We highly recommend.

The property was fantastic. Secluded and quiet, but close to everywhere we wanted to go.

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was an excellent choice for us, and anyone who wants to spend time in this area. The owner Kris was so incredibly nice. She showed us around and brought us her delicious fresh baked bread, along with eggs from the chickens around the property. The animals roaming about (geese, chickens, goats) were an absolute delight and did not disturb in the least and the scenery around the cottage was so relaxing. The cottage interior was roomy and again, perfect for our stay. It was great to sit on the back porch of the cottage and relax with a glass of wine. Kitchen, comfortable bed, everything you need for a great weekend or longer. I'm so glad we found this cottage, it will be our go-to for our future stays. Thanks much Kris for everything!

Animal Lover's Paradise

  • 5 of 5

From the dogs to the chickens, goats, turkeys, geese, and the fabulous tortoise Mr. T, all are wonderful beasts. We enjoy feeding the chickens, and finally getting Mr. T to let us touch his head and pet him! This is the most unique place we have ever stayed and will be back! Thank you Kris and Francisco for sharing your special place with all of us!

A delightful getaway at this charming country cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay and we found the cottage to be cozy, well-equipped, enhanced by the chickens, roosters, tortoise, etc., plus the fresh eggs, milk and other personal touches provided by our hosts. The location of the cottage is perfect and close to Solvang and Los Olivos, which are great areas to explore. Kris and her husband are so friendly and welcoming and do everything to ensure a positive vacation experience.

Loved the cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect cottage. We spent three nights and enjoyed relaxing on the property. Many animals to enjoy and they are quite entertaining: chickens, including roosters; goats; geese; dogs; and a giant tortoise! The Heidi bed is adorable as a reading nook or bed. Make sure you look up to see the star filled sky. Cottage is conveniently located to everywhere you would want to go in the Santa Ynez Valley: Ballard, Los Olivos, Solvang, Santa Ynez, Los Alamos, and Figueroa Mountain Recreation Area. Kris and Francisco, thank you for you warm hospitality!
