Also found nearby are the Miniature horse ranch, Alpaca and Ostrich Ranches, and the Chumach Casino. There are also the Vintage Motorcycle, the Elverhoy Museum, the Maverick Saloon, and several famous horse ranches with Andalusians, Arabians, Thoroughbreds, Peruvian Pasos and many more. Monty Robert's famous 'join up' program is only 15 minutes away.

Great cycling trails in the area. There is cycling store for rentals and cycling tours, at the beginning of Solvang on Hwy 246.

Coffee maker, coffee, sugar, olive oil, vegetable oil, vinegar, assorted condiments and spices, salt & pepper, paper towels, dishwashing liquid, shampoo, hand soap, toilet paper, and a variety of other cleaning and laundry products.

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 :)

The bottle of wine was much appreciated :) and thank you for teaching us the intricacies of our new heating unit which is much needed at present at night. We hope to see you again for another family get-together. Greetings from Santa Ynez, Colin & Rosi

Simply the perfect balance of location, charm, hosts, and value

  • 5 of 5

A great location for venturing out in all directions. It's a charming, attached, 2-bedroom house that was just perfect for the four of us on a 3-day weekend excursion. Colin and Rosi were there to greet us and show us the lay of the place and make recommendations on restaurants and shopping. The teenage girls enjoyed the use of the pool and spa at the end of each day. We will return.

A lovely, peaceful stay! Great property in a gem of the delightful town, Santa Ynez!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is lovely, bright and airy, well stocked and comfortable. Pretty pool and jacuzzi, nice walking areas, close to sweet little town.

Hosts are very sweet - close by and accommodating but gave us complete privacy.

Perfect family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Rosi's and Colin's place. We have 4 y/o twins and 2 dogs -yellow labs- and we all enjoyed our time here very much. The house is very well equipped and while most of the time we were doing things outside, the house stayed cool enough to rest and hang out in the middle of the day when it was too hot outside. There's an AC but we didn't need to use it. The swimming pool is great for playing, laps and relaxing. Dogs were very excited to have such a big yard to run out. When tired, they would come with us in the swimming pool area and rest in the shade. There's a lot of activities to do in the nearby towns for both kids and adults. We took kids to the mini horse ranch and to ostrich land where you can feed ostriches. The Sunny Fields Park in Solvang has a beautiful playground for kids. I highly recommend it. Rosi and Colin are super nice and while we didn't see them that much, they were always available with great suggestions and making sure we were having a good time. We'd love to come back next time we plan a family trip to this area.
