About Colin and Rosi

Colin - a sailing and golfing enthusiast.

Rosi - speaks English, Dutch, French and German

Colin and Rosi purchased this house in 2007

Why Colin and Rosi chose Santa Ynez

We love the people, the weather, the facilities. We have lived in many parts of the world and Santa Ynez is one of the very best. We have been in the valley for over 20 years. It is also warmer and drier here than at the California coast.

What makes this house unique

Peaceful, secure, beautiful, great pool and spa, fully fenced, quiet road, a short walk or drive down to the village of Santa Ynez. Walking, golfing, horse riding, tennis, gliding, cycling, all available nearby. Many great wineries and restaurants as well :)

Terrific time!

  • 5 of 5

My family (2 adults and 2 kids 10/12) had a great time. Colin and Rosi were wonderful hosts, and the property was clean and well-kept. It was precisely what we needed for visiting this remarkable location for the long weekend. We couldn't have asked for anything more. Thank you!

Wonderful stay!

We loved the beautiful home in Santa Ynez and the hosts were very gracious! We enjoyed exploring the area and appreciated having access to the pool to cool off in the evenings. We hope to stay here again when we are headed this way. Thank you again for your wonderful hospitality.

A perfect spot for relaxation and wine tasting

  • 5 of 5

We made a stop in Santa Ynez on our way from Sequoia National Park to Las Vegas. Colin and Rosi were excellent hosts, the house was spacious for four persons, there was everything we needed, it was quiet, and the beds were very comfortable. We chilled out in the pool during the day and enjoyed the food and wines in local restaurants in Santa Ynez and Los Olivos. You can buy bread/pastry for breakfast and anything for the barbecue in the supermarket close by.

Owner's Response: A truly delightful family coming all the way from Denmark, who we would have loved to host longer, but they were going to explore a bit more of California and Arizona. We would be very pleased to have them return again one day, and we really appreciate their kind review.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a great little house! Pretty views, nice outdoor space, fun pool and hot tub, great hosts. Two couples stayed three days and had a great time. We used the grill, ate outside every evening, and had a swim in the pool. It was everything we needed and more. Thanks Colin and Rosi!
