We have offered our ranch to host family and friends to beautiful, relaxing, activity filled vacations. We have also hosted horse clinics, lectures, English and Western Summer Horse Camps. We are now offering our piece of Paradise for your enjoyment.

Janet Wilczak purchased this estate in 2006

We chose The Santa Ynez Valley for the exquisite weather, scenery, and rural setting which reminds us most of Tuscany. It's the perfect place to keep our 5 horses and they love it here. We love the country and rural feeling with the convenience of a 30 minute drive to Santa Barbara beaches and only 90 minutes to Los Angeles.

Our family is very active and we try to enjoy everything the ranch has to offer. We also like to unwind at the end of the day and relax in the hot tub while gazing at the star filled sky.

DOUBLE J RANCH

  • 5 of 5
What a fantastic home! My experience is pictures of rentals don't always show the real home. The Double J Ranch was just the opposite. Beautiful well cared for property. Our family stayed for just a weekend, for my daughter's wedding. I couldn't have asked for more. So much room for all 5 families. Our only regret is that we couldn't have stayed longer and because of the different festivities we weren't able to sit and enjoy while we were there. Definitely going back!!!

RESPITE RETREAT FROM THE CITY. LUXURY RANCH WITH A COUNTRY FEEL

  • 5 of 5
This property offers the WOW factor. We came for a family reunion/60th birthday party. This property offered something for everyone: pool and playground for children. Activities for the active ones: tennis and basketball. I brought all this equipment and never needed my tennis racket and balls. BTW - balls, tennis rackets and ball machine are all there. Even small tricycles for the toddlers. The exercise room was great! This house is equipped with every detail. The little ones loved retrieving fresh eggs from the chicken coup and contributing to our breakfast feasts.
We never left the house to explore Solvang and all the wineries that are literally down the road. I suppose we will need to make another trip and excuse to re-visit this house.
I was thrilled that the owner's allow for 2 night minimum. Owner's were very accommodating to allow our furry friends to join in the party (pet addendum - of course)
The massage chair was a major hit that we had to use a sign-in sheet and time limit.
Overall, wonderful home to enjoy family and friends. Priceless.

AMAZING RETREAT !!! EVERYTHING YOU COULD ASK FOR AND MORE...

  • 5 of 5
Exceeded our expectations on all counts... Comfort, luxury, amenities... Wish we'd had more time to take advantage of the home. Janet was so gracious and accommodating ... The gourmet chef's kitchen was a delight to cook in , so well stocked. Janet even put FRESH EGGS FROM THE CHICKEN COOP in the fridge for us! We had our annual girl's wine weekend here. The house easily accommodated the 11 of us. We hope to come back next year. Great for families and groups of friends or couples. This is a 5 star experience....

BEST WEEKEND EVER!

  • 5 of 5
Double J Ranch is a gem! My husband (then fiancé) and I booked the property for our wedding weekend and had a small celebration with close friends and family. Everyone was blown away by the beauty of the ranch and we couldn't have asked for a better place. The pictures are accurate, but it all looks so much prettier in person with some stunning views. Janet (the owner) is very helpful and accommodating. She answers all emails promptly and even corresponded directly with our caterers to answer questions. She even offered to have her horses put out in the pasture near the driveway so our friends and family could enjoy them. The karaoke room was a BIG hit as was the tennis/basketball court. We were so pleased with everything and would definitely come back for another weekend. I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone looking for a fun and relaxing stay.

WONDERFUL STAY

  • 5 of 5
We brought our family here for a family reunion. The younger crowd enjoyed the karaoke. The very young crowd the play equipment. And all of us the pool, tennis and unbelievable kitchen. We'd love to come back again.

WONDERFUL, PRIVATE PROPERTY FOR ENTIRE GROUP!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed at the J&J Ranch with a few couples for 4 nights over the July 4th weekend. Much better then staying in a hotel! We had perfect weather and had a great time. The photos really do not do the property justice; the home is perfectly set up for entertaining with all the features you could want: kitchen is fully equipped, rooms are very large, lots of seating inside and out, great music system inside and out. We enjoyed the pool and tennis and the guest house was perfect for the younger adults. Huge home and property, lots of privacy. Grounds are beautiful; lots of lawn area to enjoy and the view from the patio is awesome. All enjoyed coffee in the morning on the patio and wine in the evening around the fire pit. A perfect home for relaxing; plan on cooking in, the kitchen is great and you will not want to leave. Very close to Solvang, Santa Ynez and all the wineries, but you will not want to leave!
