Nadine and I retired in 2003 from the hectic life of Aerospace and are now enjoying life as ranchers. We raise all natural grassfed beef, pasture raised organic chicken, eggs and pork. We love the country lifestyle and are blessed with having our daughter and 2 grandkids live on the ranch with us. We live approximately 6 miles from Hilltop and are available for resolving any and all issues in short order.

John de Bruin purchased this farmhouse in 2006

The Shady Oaks Ranch is an amazingly unique property. Upon arriving, you feel a sense of peace and tranquility permeate your whole being. It is like being transported to another world or dimension. Complementing this sense of tranquility are the views and vistas of Buellton, the Santa Ynez Valley and the surrounding mountains. Do you enjoy the outdoors? Cachuma Lake or Gaviota State Beach are excellent places to go picnic and hike. Enjoy wine tasting? The valley is filled with amazing boutique wineries as well as some that are quite sizeable and offer a great variety. Shopping? Enjoy history? Visit the two Missions established by the origianl Spanish Settlers. Visit Solvang for a real shopping experience from clothing to knick knacks to the world's softest socks. Hilltop at Shady Oaks Ranch provides you with a means to escape and yet have a diversity of activities to complement your time away from the hustkle and bustle.

When Nadine and I first saw ( I really mean experienced) this property we were awestruck. We just could not leave. Located on 31 acres with means to hike up and down, challenged us to experience the entire range of views as well as the natural habitats of the majestic oaks and wildlife. You literally feel transported to another dimension. Can't say that enough. Come and experience it for yourself.

Hilltop Serenity

  • 5 of 5
We had a great 4th July weekend at the Hilltop. Great space, big enough for families with small children. Our kids loved the bunk bed room! Great outdoor space to relax and enjoy a 360 view. Nice welcoming fresh fruit and Starbucks coffee. Close proximity to beaches, Solvang, and wineries.Mosby winery less than 1 mile! Thank you John for sharing your home!

Comfort and convenience!!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great stay at the hilltop house. John was a gracious host who was easily accessible when we had a small problem with the directv. The house was big and comfortable for a family or could be for 2 families. Convenience was a nice plus as it was located central to the freeway, a lot of good wineries, and to a major grocery store. We were also able to take our dog which was so convenient. It was secluded and very quiet. Would definitely stay here again!!

Great place for a large group!

  • 5 of 5
This house was wonderful. Perfect kitchen and room for 8-10 as promised. It was clean and well kept, and the view from the backyard was lovely! The homeowner sent special directions to help us get there (very necessary) and he quickly responded to a question I emailed him once we were all settled into the house. Overall, great house, great owner, and a great weekend! Thank you!!

A Great (grape) Escape!

  • 5 of 5
The home is great for groups and we especially loved the dining table with the great lazy Susan! John and Nadine delivered everything that was promised and also, had other thoughtful touches, such as good coffee and fresh fruit. The home has that “far away” feeling that we were seeking, without actually being very far from the activities we had planned in both Solvang and Santa Ynez. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to doing so again soon!

Perfect Getaway for Girl's Weekend!

Perfect Getaway for Girl's Weekend!
  • 5 of 5
Not only was the house the perfect size with all of the amenities we needed, but John greeted us there with fresh eggs and steak! Amazing! All 5 bedrooms were spacious with comfy beds, soft sheets and lots of privacy. The kitchen is upstairs and big enough to have all 10 girls in one space while lots of cooking and dancing took place. : )
The adorable village of Los Olivos is only a 10 min. drive north and a perfect place to park a car, do some wine tasting and relax.
We'll definitely be back! Thank you John and Nadine. It was my favorite birthday weekend!

The Hilltop at Shady Oaks Ranch is located just minutes from the Santa Rita Appellation, a region first discovered by Richard Sanford to have similar soil and weather to the Burgundy region of France. Since Richard built the first winery in the area, many others have sprung up and we are now famous worldwide for our Pinot Noir's and Chardonnay's. There are many ways to visit the wineries from self guided tours to arranged tours to wine tasting rooms that have an excellent selection of the local wines without the need to travel.

In addition, lake Cachuma is a wonderful resource for fishing, picknicking, and guided nature tours. Other features include Ostrich Land, Firestone Brewery, the Chumash Resort and Casino and a myriad of fine eateries to delight anyone's tastes. In addition, two of the orginal Spanish Missions created here in California are within 20 miles.
