Beautiful scenery with great drives and walks/ hiking.
Owner, Peter, was welcoming and informative. A perfect host ! Even provided us with fresh eggs, oranges and persimmons, all from the gardens. Wonderful! What a treat that was!

Plenty of space
Beautiful home. Very helpful hosts. Has everything you will need and more.

A lovely place with beautiful gardens and outside space
We stayed with family and had two young children- peter was so sweet to put toys out with them in mind and he let them feed the chickens. A nice place in a great setting. Well stocked - highly recommend!
Peter and Bev were perfect hosts. We had everything we could possibly need, including fresh eggs from their chickens, juice, coffee, and bagels. Wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy the backyard patio, and will definitely return the next time we're in town.
From beginning to end, everything about this HomeAway experience was perfect.
Peter and Beverly are incredibly gracious hosts; we felt welcomed from the moment we stepped on to the property. The home is clean and comfortable, the gardens are lovely, and the family chickens are friendly. I have stayed in many vacation homes, and in my experience, this one is by far the most well-stocked. The kitchen has every kitchen tool imaginable!
Thank you so much Peter and Beverly. We will be back!
Great place to stay
I endorse what has already been said on the recent 5 star reviews below.
This is a spacious, clean, well set-up and good value place to stay in the Santa Ynez Valley.
Communication with Peter during the booking process was completely smooth and responsive and when we arrived we found Peter and Bev to be thoughtful and gracious hosts.
We are a family of four with two kids (eight and six years of age). The accommodation had plenty of space for us, and all the amenities that we required. The fridge was kindly stocked with a few of the basics to get us started - fresh eggs, juice, milk, bread and butter - which was much appreciated. The kids enjoyed meeting and feeding the chickens, which were no trouble at all and a pleasant idiosyncracy of the site.
We would certainly recommend this place.
