About Janet Wilczak

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

Why Janet Wilczak chose Santa Ynez

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.

What makes this estate unique

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.

A Wine Country Paradise

  • 5 of 5
What an amazing find this property was, and what an incredible setting for my husband's surprise 40th! The home is stocked with everything you can imagine (and more) and the pantry alone was enough to take your breath away. The owner has also taken great care to make it feel like home, from the beautiful furnishings to the little details like shower products and pool towels. Equally important was the fact that during our stay, the five couples in our party never once felt cramped or bored. There was so much to see and do on the grounds and so many different spots where you could hang out and relax. And, if you appreciate good wine, there are some amazing wineries within walking distance. I would highly recommend this home to others and I hope to come back - maybe next time with my kids and parents.

Wonderful Family Reunion at Santa Ynez Estate

  • 5 of 5
We selected this property for my family reunion and could not have been more pleased with our stay! We had a variety of ages - kids, teenagers, adults - and dogs, and everyone loved the property. The kids loved visiting the horses and the chickens and we all took advantage of the tennis courts and pool (the only downside was the jets were broken in the jacuzzi but that was our only complaint for the whole weekend!). The kitchen was also a highlight - incredibly well equipped and perfect for cooking big family dinners each night. But the majority of our time was spent just outside the kitchen on the sprawling grounds, taking in the beautiful view. When we were able to drag ourselves away from this gorgeous property, we enjoyed visiting Los Olivos, some of the surrounding wineries and the guys hit up one of the local golf courses. We fell in love with this house and are already planning a trip back for our family reunion next summer!

Amazing home - total relaxation!

  • 5 of 5
Our group of 8 guys, all immediate or extended family, visited this amazing private gated country estate for the 2nd time this past June. The home is so beautiful and well maintained that we actually never left during our 3-day stay. On our previous trip we did leave for a few hours to visit one winery. You can see the pride of ownership that Janet has for her home and we feel privileged to visit. It's a very private and secluded property on many acres with horses and chickens...very peaceful to sit outside, relax, drink wine and socialize. The large grass area also allowed us to enjoy bocci ball and other games. Lastly, we had Chef Kurt who was recommended by Janet, come in to cook for our group on two nights...wonderful food. Overall, it's a great home and we'll continue to come back every year.

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....
