Manager info

About: We lived in Santa Barbara city for many years and moved to our current property to enjoy a rural setting with clean air, blue skies and star-filled evenings. We find the bucolic ambiance peaceful yet close to all the charms of nearby towns. Our vineyard is on the known cycling road of Ballard Canyon. The movie "Sideways" was filmed only 1.5 miles from our front gate. We have lived on our cherished property for over 25 years and wouldn't consider living anywhere else.

Why Solvang, CA, USA:
We wanted more land and gardens and thought it would be wonderful to have our own vineyard. When we saw the breathtaking views from the homesite and cottage we were hooked.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Los Angeles and Santa Barbara airports are readily accessible. Driving to Disneyland takes about three hours, but gorgeous Refugio Beach Park is about 30 minutes and is a broad safe beach with picnic areas. There are opportunities for a variety of sporting activities, a movie theatre, restaurants, and fast food are only 2 miles away.
