SPECTACULAR ACCOMMODATION IN HORSE, WINE AND GOLF REGION W/POOL

Santa Ynez House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms - 1 Bath - (Sleeps 4)

This is a newer Mediterranean Style guest house extension. It is located on five acres, one mile from the little village of Santa Ynez-a nice walk to the local coffee shops and restaurants. You will pass horse ranches and an Alpaca ranch. It is totally private with it's own driveway and entrance. A peaceful retreat with beautiful views and a seasonal stream at the bottom of the property, but with many activities nearby.

Our neighbors in Santa Ynez have: wine tasting and winery tours, at the over 70 local wineries. These include Firestone, Fess Parker, Gainey, Sunstone etc.

Also found are the Miniature horse, Alpaca and Ostrich Ranches, and the Chumash Casino. There are also the Vintage Motorcycle and Elverhoy Museums, the Maverick Saloon, and several famous horse ranches with Andalusians, Arabs, Thoroughbreds, Peruvian Pasos and many more. Monty Robert's famous 'join up' program is only 15 minutes away. Great cycling trails, used for training by Lance Armstrong.

Wonderful tranquil location - close to SY: We are located on a private partly unpaved road, only 1 mile from the village of Santa Ynez, with very little road traffic.

A safe and quiet area of horse ranches and an alpaca ranch on the road to the town.

There is lots of off road parking on the property, private separate entry gates and driveway, and an outside patio and gas barbecue

Santa Ynez boasts great restaurants, a coffee shop, a historical museum, post office, bank, gas station, pharmacy, florist, wine tasting rooms, an art gallery, a cycling shop for rentals and tours, and even a tiny library!

Another memorable stay

  • 5 of 5
Our (my husband and I and our two dogs) Jan - March winter sun break at Colin and Rosi's was IDEAL! A neat & hospitable home base for relaxing, sunny sits on the patio, exploring the region, ambling with our dogs & greeting neighbors along the way, and generally feeling very much at home. At the heart of such a positive experience was/is the extraordinary hospitality and ability of the hosts to be both welcoming, helpful, accessible and yet non-intrusive. Over the years we've stayed at many spots; Colin and Rosi's is exceptional!

Seriously, It Couldn't Have Been Better

Seriously, It Couldn't Have Been Better
  • 5 of 5
Our little family does a lot of these 1-week stays at people's vacation homes, particularly to this area (Santa Ynez Valley), and I can honestly say this was probably the most perfect visit for our family (hubby, wife, and 3-year-old explorer) so far. First of all, if memory serves me correctly, this probably the least expensive option that I found in Santa Ynez, but that had nothing to do with the size and quality of the home. Upon my initial inquiry, Colin immediately got back to me and was very helpful and easygoing with the set process. It's a unique, private setting, yet still close and convenient to most areas of the Valley. Colin had the private gate open and was ready for us, and was just super, super nice right off the bat. He gave us a quick tour, and I can tell you it's a tremendous value for what you get. The 2 bedroom private residence is really clean, good sized, and very well appointed. It's a REAL 2-bedroom; not some scrunched up little converted version of one, and it's supplied with everything you need to have a smooth trip. The the grounds were a real highlight for us. We went swimming every day, and our little Tornado was just having so much fun terrorizing every nook and cranny of the 5-acre lot.

But what really made the property special were the hosts, Colin and Rosi. We've met a lot of nice owners over the years, but these two were the first ones that I personally felt like I wanted to go out of my way to talk to and hang out with. I tend to want to just be left alone on our trips, but every time I saw Colin and/or Rosi it just made me smile. Don't get me wrong; they're not hovering over you and invading your space or something. They are just really, really nice, sweet people. I can't imagine anyone NOT liking them. If we stay in Santa Ynez again, there is no doubt we will be staying with them (if it's available, of course).

Absolutely Loved it!!!

  • 5 of 5
My Husband, myself and our three boys absolutely loved it here! We loved the small cute town of Santa Ynez that was just a few minute down the road! Also the many other little towns close by! We loved that the kids had lots of room to run around the yard and ride their bikes! The house itself was bright, comfy and had everything we needed! The best thing about this house though were the owners Colin and Rosi! Right from the start, they were so kind, thoughtful and willing to help in every way! We would definetly go back to stay! We had such a great time, we wish we could have stayed longer!

No Place Better!

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for a special place to relax and enjoy the Santa Ynez Valley then this is it---a beautiful 5 acre setting, quiet, clean and well-maintained 2 BR 1 BA accommodations, Pool/Jacuzzi/BBQ, and best of all terrific hosts in Colin and Rosi (their homemade apple pie was the best!). A perfect place to stay and visit nearby Santa Ynez, Los Olivos, Solvang and all the great wineries, restaurants and shops. We will be back!!!

Cycling paradise!

  • 5 of 5
First of all, I'm the type of person who always tells herself I should write a review about my stays. However, I never end up doing it, but this time, I couldn't pass on this one!

My husband, my 7 month old baby, the 2 grandmothers and I, passed our last 2 weeks in the beautiful village of Santa Ynez. The main reason of our visit was to train for the triathlon season. At first, we were debating if we should stay in a hotel or rent a house. As we never stayed in a VRBO before, we were a little sceptical. And as we were comparing the hotels and the properties in the surroundings, we really liked the vibe and the GREAT REVIEWS about Rosi and Collin's guest house.

After a few e-mail exchange with Collin, we opted for the beautiful guest house on Meadowvale Av. Let me tell you, I don't think we could of made a better choice.

Overall, the experience was great. The hosts are very welcoming, politer, discrete and funny! I just love Rosi's sense of humour. They simply are authentic.

As for the guest house, we couldn't ask for more. All the basics are there; it is clean, well-maintained and the beds and linen are comfortable. Being 4 adults, the dishwasher was very appreciated, as well as the washing and drying machine. We also used the BBQ a couple of times.

It is also well located on a peace and quiet road, but at the same time, not too far from the cute little town. For most of our meals, we went to El Rancho's market (the Café Latte are pretty good at the Coffee house) and prepared them at home. It was much easier with a little baby. However, I do recommend Panino, situated in Santa Ynez, Los Olivos and Solvang. They make great sandwiches and salads. We also tried out Root 246 in Solvang, a modern restaurant serving farm-to-table cuisine. The service was a little awkward, but the food was great!

Finally, this VRBO experience was overall amazing. I would definitely recommend it to anyone without hesitating. Again, the property is great, but the owners make it even greater.

Merci beaucoup Rosi et Collin!

Another wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely month long stay at this Santa Ynez home again this year (and plan to go back again). The homeowners, Colin & Rosi are ideal hosts. A stones throw away if you need anything and yet highly sensitive to not intruding on your vacation time - so no need to worry at all about being on the same property as a VRBO homeowner. They are wonderful people and time spent with them is a joy. The home itself is perfect for our needs... an adult couple wanting some rest & relaxation while being technologically in contact with home/work.

The proximity to town is great (nice walk to restaurants and shops), a short distance to the services of pretty Solvang and Buellton (more great restaurants, shops, movie theatre, fitness centre and golfing), lots of wonderful wineries, and a stunning 25 minute drive through the mountains to Santa Barbara.

We have had friends and family (single/couple) come visit for a few nights and the second bedroom serves perfectly. The new bigger tv's were a bonus this year. The house is spotless, well laid out, has onsite laundry (critical for an extended stay), a bbq that works (novel concept amoung VRBO's in our experience) and homeowners who want you to make the place your own... right down to starting up the hot tub for you and encouraging you to use the pool. (As Canadians, we are not accustomed to pools after September, Rosi however can be found in it in December! Nuts).

We can't recommend the place highly enough, but discourage anyone from wanting to visit in December... we're hoping to keep that month to ourselves for annual visits. Rosi & Colin, thank you once again for a wonderfully relaxing vacation.
