OAK CREEK, IN THE HEART OF SANTA YNEZ WINE COUNTRY. CHEERS!

Santa Ynez House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

If you are planning a trip to the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley to relax, do some wine tasting, reunion, honey moon or to take part in a bicycle race, Oak Creek is the perfect place to use as your vacation get away.

The 2,525 square foot home was built only ten years ago. It features an open air, indoor/outdoor floor plan. Enjoy spacious rooms with large windows, bamboo floors, carpeted bedrooms, ten foot tall ceilings and all stainless steel kitchen appliances. The kitchen, located in the center of the home, is fully equipped for any chef. Herbs can be harvested in the garden and enhance your meal! The view of the waterfall and garden while cooking will give you great energy.

An inviting wood burning fireplace with plush seating all around add extra comfort on those cozy nights. You can also hide in the reading room, full of books, and relax with candle light. The inviting dining room is always ready to share laughter and cheer and it is also a perfect place to play board games!

Each bedroom is decorated with the ultimate relaxation in mind. Lush feather bedding may leave you wanting to stay in bed all day long! Each mattress is therapeutic so that you sleep rested and sound.

There are two bathtubs for those guests who want to relax their muscles. From two of the three bedrooms there is a sweeping view of the garden.

The landscaped garden is amazing both during the day and at night. A curly Willow has over time formed a shaded garden roof and provides for a nice area during the hot Santa Ynez Valley summer days and perfect for bird watching. The bamboo keeps the garden green during all seasons. Grapevines, blackberries, blueberries, lime tree, peach tree, plum tree, apple tree and olive tree keep our guests taste buds happy! The gorgeous waterfall attracts extensive birdlife that is enjoyable to watch. For you sun lovers, relax in the chase lounge chairs.

The charcoal BBQ is ready for any menu along with an outdoor fire pit that may excite the smores enthusiast in you.

The front porch is perfect for you early risers. Brew a cup of coffee and pick up the daily Santa Barbara News Press and the Wall Street Journal delivered to you every day. Relax under the Wisteria covered porch while covered under a cozy blanket and watch the sunrise with cup in hand . The house cat Hurley might join you in hopes of a belly rub. He stays outdoors for most of the day but likes to come inside from time to time. No matter what your reason for coming to the Santa Ynez Valley, Oak Creek will make your stay all the more relaxed and enjoyable. It is the perfect home for couples, friends and families alike.

My husband Warren and I met in Buellton and a local restaurant some 30 years ago when I was visiting the area. Born and raised in Sweden, Solvang seemed like the right place to be. There I could find some Scandinavian home cooking if needed. One thing led to another and after a few years, Warren and I ended up setting our roots in the beautiful Valley we all know as Santa Ynez. A lot has happened since. Our two now grown children grew up in a safe and amazing environment where neighbors care for one another. The towns of Santa Ynes Valley are all close to each other. Where ever you go for a stroll, you are sure to run in to someone you know. It is small town living at it's best. My husband is in the resaturant business and I am a Landscape Designer. When staying at our homes (Costa Rica, VRBO 340019) we always feel we are on vacation. Since moving to the Valley, we have lived in two homes. Solvang 'The Sunny Valley' has changed quit a bit since I first arrived. The Danish community has grown into an extensive and flourishing wine and equestrian industry. Not too many years ago the bicycle racing teams found what a fantastic place Santa Ynez is to train in their sport. Every day you see teams of colorful bicyclists riding every scenic road.

It is a unique place.

Eva Powers purchased this house in 2001

We choose to move to the Valley when we found the right home to raise our family. The schools are top notch, people care for one another, every day is a gorgeous day. We are only minutes away from mountain trails, gorgeous beach, parks, friends and shopping. Santa Barbara is only 1/2 hour away and it is not far to San Francisco or LA. The five cities just north of us is another vacation spot to visit, only an hour away. We live in and are surrounded by the best of the best.

Our home in Santa Ynez Valley is open, light and spacious. I have a tough time leaving it every time we do and can not wait to return. It is functional and oh, so comfortable. The garden is my sanctuary where I loose myself in gardening. Or I find myself on one of the lawn chairs with a book in hand, catching up on a little sun tan. From there I watch the migratory birds taking a refreshing bath in the waterfall. We spend many evenings entertaining out doors with a fire going in the wood burner. The three bedrooms are of to one side of the house. When there, you have total quiet privacy from the rest of the house. The ceilings are ten feet high through out the home, creating more sense of space. The bamboo floors warms the home. The home is 2,525 sq. feet. We did not want a home that is too large to handle, keeping us away from the things we love to do. We did not want to stay in a house where we felt crowded. We wanted the social life of good neighbors. We have so many fun times together. And I needed a garden small enough to notice every delicate detail that would be a joy to maintain. Not a chore.

We were looking for a home that is perfect for entertaining. Oak Creek has all of this and we are so happy to be able to share the home with you.

Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5
Oak Creek was absolutely outstanding! I had high expectations based on the photos and description, and I was surely not disappointed. The house was immaculate and beautifully furnished. No detail went unnoticed, down to chocolates left on our pillows. We traveled to Oak Creek for a bachelorette weekend, and the girls (all working professionals) were thoroughly impressed with our accommodations. Not only is the property beautiful, but it's comfortable and welcoming as well. We all found room to lounge around either inside on the plush furniture, or outside in the delightful garden. The house is also well stocked with dinnerware and glassware, more than enough for all of us who ate all our meals in. The owner, whom I had never met before, treated me like I was family or a life-long friend. She was so helpful in getting to know not only her property, but the entire area as well. She set us with some excellent recommendations. Thank you Eva and Oak Creek. I hope to be back

Oak Creek: an outstanding experience

  • 5 of 5
Our family as visiting Santa Ynez Valley to attend our nephew's wedding. Although we had never rented a vacation house before, our experience with Eva and Oak Creek made the process seamless from our initial communications to checking out. Oak Creek is wonderfully appointed, perfect for three couples, and was a great place to relax and recover.

Perfect Women's Retreat

Perfect Women's Retreat
  • 5 of 5
Oak Creek was the perfect setting for our women's retreat. Eva welcomed us with warmth and kindness. Situated in the heart of wine country, Eva offered informative suggestions to excellent wineries and also to wonderful local ones that are only a walk away!
Ending our evenings cooking in the spacious and well equipped kitchen then relaxing in the comfortable and beautifully decorated home was a great way to end a fun packed day visiting the wineries. We also took advantage of the lush little jewel of a garden created by Eva who is a talented landscape designer. (Here I must add that Eva has great tips and advice to all aspiring gardeners as she generously, and patiently, answered all our questions as we stood slightly spellbound in her beautiful garden.) In short, it was a perfect women's retreat--and the beginning of a new tradition!

Could not be a better place!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I were visiting our daughter in LA and were looking for a nice place to stay in the valley for a getaway weekend. We two couples found this home to be absolutely beautiful! Eva could not have been more gracious with her suggestions and pointers about great places to visit in the towns nearby. . The home is perfectly appointed and has everything one could ask for. We enjoyed dinners on the patio and cthe peace and quiet of a most beautiful garden.There are great wineries all around in the nearby towns. Do not pass this home up! The pictures do not do it justice, it is even more beautiful.
