Exceptional home and location

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I had a fantastic stay at this beautiful home. It's a quiet, peaceful location with a gorgeous view. Our stress just melted away as soon as we arrived. The owners take great care of this home, and are thoughtful enough to leave welcome gifts with hand written notes, bottled water, and amenities in the bathrooms and bedrooms that make you feel like you're visiting a close friend's house.

It's a great location for touring the local wineries, or just visiting Los Olivos, Santa Ynez and Solvang.

I highly recommend this home, and hope to return again soon.

Wonderful Girls stay at beautiful Ranch property

  • 5 of 5
This property was absolutely amazing. We spent a girls weekend at Mark's beautiful house in Santa Ynez. This is the perfect place for local wine tasting, and relaxation with friends and loved ones. The property itself is wonderfully decorated and sits atop a hill with a breathtaking view of nature surrounding it. Everything you would need for your stay is available in the house from new appliances to extra pool towels to local soaps and lotions. Mark and his lovely wife have prepared for everything a guest would need and have paid very close attention to every detail of the house-- including a "welcome" bottle of local wine and lavender sachets (I assume the lavender was from the local lavender farm across the road) upon arrival. A very thoughtful touch that helped start our weekend stay off right!
Our group spent one of the days wine tasting, but the place is so amazing, it was just as nice to be on the property and enjoy the pool and the beautiful surroundings.
Mark was available and very helpful both before and after our visit. He answered all of our questions and had many useful suggestions for our stay.
I would absolutely recommend this place to everyone...and hope to come back for another visit as well. Maybe next time for a couples retreat!

charming home, stunning views

  • 5 of 5
I just returned from a weekend at this lovely mountaintop retreat and must say I'm feeling pretty sad that I'm no longer there. We couldn't have found a better home for a girls getaway weekend.

The home is perched up in the Santa Ynez hills - it's close to the little town of Santa Ynez, Solvang, and numerous wineries, but most everything feels lightyears away once you're up on the property. The property itself is charmingly bucolic and incredibly quiet, and the views of the rolling hilltops from the back deck/pool area are amazing - feels just like Tuscany. We laid poolside in the heat of the day, and during the cooler evening hours sat out on the back of the hill munching cheese, sipping wine, and enjoying the landscape.

Inside is just as lovely as the grounds. 3 well-appointed bedrooms, several bathrooms, and a roomy living room made it perfectly comfortable for our group of 6. Features that especially standout: the elegant simplicity of the decor, the large and full-equipped kitchen (was great to cook a big dinner in), the bathroom in the master bedroom that looks out over the hills, the super comfortable beds and linens, the iPod decks. And beyond that, there are sweet touches from the owners throughout, like free coffee and 1/2 and 1/2 and bottles of water.

The fact that the owners were so friendly and easy to work with during the rental process was icing on the cake.

We have already discussed making this an annual trip. I hope to be back sometime in the near future!
