  • Quaint stone cottage

    "We loved this quaint little stone cottage on a beautiful property. The owners live just next door but we didn't see them and felt like we were in our own place. The inside is beautiful and everything is new. Loved the bottle of red wine as a welcome gift. It's a few miles outside of Solvang but it's quick to get there by car and we prefer to be out of town anyway. 3 times as we came up the driveway we saw a family of 6 deer. That's when you know you're in the country!"

  • Ballard FarmHouse is the most charming, historic, welcoming, beautiful setting located in Santa Ynez

    "This home is the most charming, welcoming, beautiful setting located in the historic town of Ballard in Santa Ynez Valley. We just spent a few days here and loved every moment. Since we raised our family in Ballard many years ago, this little historic township has had special meaning to us. The Ballard Farm House was like stepping back in time with the history, beauty, serenity, and peaceful feelings surrounding us during our stay. The home is so comfortable with big rooms, wood floors, wood burning fireplace, big family style kitchen with lots of amenities and whatever you need for preparing meals. The dining room will seat a very large family at the oval shaped table in the oversized dining room. The king size bed downstairs was SO comfortable. There are lots of big windows throughout the home that look out to the views, beautiful oak trees and grassy fields. The big old fashioned front porch is so inviting for sitting and enjoying the view, or just reading, or enjoying some quiet time. We highly recommend this home anytime you are in, near, or around the Santa Ynez Valley area. The location is perfect, as it is so centrally located for wine tasting, visiting art galleries, trail riding, hiking in the mountains, the Theaterfest, or many of the gourmet restaurants, or shopping in the many boutique shops. Santa Barbara is just a short drive away and all the activities there. Everything about the Ballard Farm House is calling us to come back for more as soon as possible. And in addition to all the above, the owner was very responsive with any questions we had and offers suggestions for places to go and things to do. Everything was perfect for our stay."

  • Exceptional vacation rental

    "My husband and I wanted to get away for my birthday, and Rancho De Los Colores was the perfect place. We stayed in the large guest house with kitchenette and full dining table, pullout leather sofa, queen bed with luxury linens, and full bath also with luxurious towels and robes (one of my favorite amenities - makes you feel like you're at a spa resort). The house sits far back from the road and allows for privacy. Sitting out by the pool is like heaven, especially on a 75 degree February day! The location is amazing - close to wineries (Roblar is a favorite), Los Olivos, Santa Ynez. There are some great restaurants nearby if you don't feel like cooking in the well-appointed kitchen (everything you could need to create a gourmet meal, including a Frozen Concoction Machine). I particularly liked Sides Hardware and Shoes in Los Olivos (yes, that is the name of the restaurant) and SY Kitchen in Santa Ynez. Cannot wait to get back to Rancho De Los Colores!!"

  • Lovely home in Santa Ynez

    "We loved everything about our visit. The property is beautiful with lots of room for kids to run around and play. Quiet, safe neighborhood that was just a short drive from Mission Santa Ines, Solvang, and various stables, and about 35-40 minutes from Downtown Santa Barbara. We're already looking forward to our next stay."
