About Meagan Tambini
Originally from Santa Barbara, we've lived in Ballard for 17 years, raising our kids who are now in College. We are graduates of Santa Barbara City College and UCSB. We enjoy the outdoors and walking, hiking and biking regularly.
Meagan Tambini purchased this apartment in 1997
Why Meagan Tambini chose Santa Ynez
We moved to Ballard when my Geologist husband took a job at a local water district. We searched for homes throughout the Santa Ynez Valley, but when we saw Ballard School it sealed the deal. Our eldest daughter was entering kindergarten and we couldn't have imagined a more idyllic childhood experience than life in Ballard.
Several years ago I became a licensed Real Estate agent and saw first-hand the trend of investors buying vacation rental properties in our area. It occurred to us that we had the ability to do the same thing with our attached - but private - apartment. We had been asked for years if friends and family could rent the apartment for the Summer or various holidays. We've finally decided to give it a try.
What makes this apartment unique
We loved Ballard from the moment we drove through town and, as luck would have it, it has become one of the most desirable areas in the Santa Ynez Valley. The specific location of Ballard appealed to us for so many reasons including it's proximity to biking, hiking, and restaurants throughout the Valley. From the doorstep, you are on a premier touring route - perfect for biking enthusiasts, wine tasting, and as a launch pad for day trip excursions to such places as Cambria and San Simeon (Hearst Castle), and Whale Watching in Santa Barbara. You are 15 minutes drive from hiking Gaviota Peak, Tequepis Trail and so much more. It's the perfect location for an active couple's vacation getaway, or just relaxing with a great bottle of local wine.
Ask us about your options for interesting hikes, scenic bike routes, or day trips by car - you'll find Maps in the apartment. We're here to enhance your stay in the Santa Ynez Valley where you'll consistently find the best weather in the Country!
