About Lynda A Ente

Having resided in the Santa Ynez Valley for over 30 years, Lynda is a knowledgeable concierge. After initially training horses on local ranches, she then founded (upstairs-downstairs) a domestic maid service, providing service to the community and many local celebrities. Originally from England, as a single mother of two teenage children, one with special needs, Lynda fully understands that in order to have a great family vacation it is imperative that the children are also entertained and happy.

Lynda A Ente purchased this estate in 1986

Why Lynda A Ente chose Santa Ynez

The Santa Ynez Valley is one of the most sought after vacation spots north of Los Angeles. Desirable not only for it's proximity,(2 hours), but also for its wineries, horse ranches, and incredible beauty and diversity. The ranch lies in the Santa Rita wine corridor, the daily cooling breeze from the Gaviota coast provides for the best micro-climate in the valley.

What makes this estate unique

The house is ideally suited for family get togethers and reunions. Having the two abutting apartments one guests can be together yet still have their alone time

Enjoy the View of Santa Ynez Valley

  • 4 of 5
This ranch was particularly great because Lynda was kind enough to allow our horses and trailer on her property. The 10 acre ranch is just 2 miles west of the 101, on the 246-so it is easy to get to and close to stores.
Looking at the aerial picture--drive down the long, flat driveway lined with eucalyptus and pass a couple houses. Look to the left to see the huge sand arena, fully shaded pastures, and paddocks. Tucked beyond one treed pasture is a large rectangular pool and cabana. Pass more paddocks, shed barns and Lynda’s residence--the driveway begins to climb where the Eucalyptus turn left. The steep driveway leads you up to the far left where the ranch home is perched at the top of the hill and looks straight down at the wooded and property.
The immaculate, bright, sky-lighted home has the most beautiful, relaxing view of the valley and mountains, seen from the long front porch and large dining - living rooms.
Two sets of bedrooms are on either side of the central living-dining-kitchen rooms.
On the right: 2 great "kids" rooms share a full bath in the hallway. (Toys and books for kids!)
On the left is a huge master bedroom-bath suite. A mini kitchen in the hallway separates it from a large "rec" room with a fireplace, and small 3/4 bath-laundry space.
The whole house is nearly surrounded by porches or patios. There is a large patio off the kitchen that connects to a private triple suite apartment: bedroom, living room, and bath-kitchen. There is more than enough space for 3 families. Lynda continuously works hard and comes to the rescue to make your stay comfortable. You will enjoy meeting her horse and find out about her amazing England equestrian background. This is convenient lodging as you tour all the attractions in the Santa Ynez Valley.

Family reunion from Los Angeles, Sab

  • 5 of 5
My daughter got married in one of the vineyards on weekend of 8/9/2014 and we rented the house for our family & relatives to stay @ bond together. The house has plenty of space for 12 people, the living room, dining & kitchen are spacious plus the huge refrigerator. It feels like homey & relaxing. The bedrooms & linens are very clean, with enough toiletries. It's much better renting than a hotel. You enjoy family togetherness & privacy and very close to Solvang, Los Olivos, Chumash Casino, Santa Ynez Misssipn Church, very close to the freeways. Thank you Lynda for the opportunity to stay in your house. For sure it will be recommended to family & friends

Everything was amazing! The house is big and roomy, lots of natural light. We made the front porch our main area because the view is amazing! Extremely private at the top of a big hill, this was truly relaxing getaway. We utilized the fire put every night, and moved the patio table out front and enjoyed all of our meals there. Lynda the owner was incredibly accommodating and hospitable. She gave us everything we needed and more! Book and enjoy :)

Beautiful Location

  • 2 of 5
Beautiful location was the nicest title I could come up with, but that's where it ends. I don't want to sound to negative, cause the Owner of the house is extremely nice and hard working. But the issues with the house outweigh the beautiful location. My family rented this house for our family get together, we came from California, Arizona and Washington. We rented this house because the size was perfect for our family.

First off the septic tank has probably never been cleaned out, because raw sewage was coming up in the master bathtub and shower. Needless to say we were unable to use it. We had to take very quick showers. Felt like we were camping! The bedroom next to the master smelled like mildew, but we were unable to open the window, cause of the smell from the septic tank. Second of all there were ants crawling all over the entire house inside and out. These two issues need to be taken care of by a professional and I wouldn't rent this house unless you have proof that they were taken care of.

The owner said she had internet access, but she never brought the modem up to the house, so we did not have internet access during our stay and my husband was working while we were there and needed to get on the internet.

Overall we did enjoy our trip to the Solvang area as best we could, but personally I was unable to relax.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review and I do want to say how very sorry I am that this unfortunate incident occurred.
Unfortunately septic systems are more fragile than sewer service and more likely to back up if anything other than T.P. is flushed.

My septic tank is pumped on a regular basis however I later found the cause to be an accumulation of roots in the line from the bathroom to the main tank and also a broken pipe from the dry well to the leach field.
I have since had the lines hydro-jetted, the tank pumped, and the pipe to the leach field has been fixed.
As far as the ants are concerned they are a seasonal nuisance and they are now being abated on a regular basis.
My apologies for not setting up the modem.

Great property for our family reunion.

  • 4 of 5
Our family needed a spot to accommodate adults, kids and dogs for our family reunion and Lynda"s ranch house worked perfectly for us. The setting is serene and the view is majestic. And Lynda went above and beyond to welcome us and to make the stay pleasant.
As in any hilltop property with a septic system, the plumbing presented some minor challenges.

Best Family Vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5
Eight to ten adults, three children and three dogs, a fine house at the top of a hill during the middle of summer with breezes, sunshine and an outstanding view, a proprietor who responded to every need – what more could we ask for? The house was clean, comfortable and quite suitable for our extended family retreat. Lynda brought her beautiful horse so that we could ride. We found her so personable that we had her join us for drinks and dinner too -- loads of FUN. We could easily visit again and we highly recommend this abode. Thank you so much, Lynda, and until we meet again.

Owner's Response: Janine and her Family were the kind of guests one dreams of, they took such good care of the house that I felt that I should be paying them!!!
I loved that they enjoyed the house and made good use of the kitchen, dining area etc.
The house is so well set up for family reunions because of all the space you can be together but not on top of each other.
The pleasure was surely mine , and I would be indeed honored if a return visit was to planned.
Thank you for your review,
Fondly Lynda

This mountaintop ranch is situated in Santa Ynez Valley Wine Country along the wine trail for the Santa Rita Hills.

Approximately two hours driving time from Los Angeles and five hours from San Francisco.

The Ranch is unique in that although secluded, it is not remote, only 2 miles from Hwy 101, and the nearest town of Buellton with all the amenities of a small town, supermarkets, restaurants,cinemas, etc.

This proximity makes a weekend away in wine country feesable especially if you are coming from the Los Angeles area. The nearest beach (Gaviota) is 20 mins away, Lake Cachuma is a 25 minute drive and the much sought after villages of Solvang, Santa ynez and Los Olivos are all within 10-20mins driving distance.The famous Hitching Post restaurant (featured in the award winning movie Sideways)is 2mins. away,and the Chumash casino is 10 mins. from the ranch.

Other Activities: HIKING, MOUNTAIN BIKING,BACKPACKING, STAR GAZING
