About Connie Chackel

My husband and I purchased this property and raised our family in this home. Throughout the years, the home has been completely remodeled to include a pool, spa, two master suites and gourmet kitchen. It has been an ideal home for family gatherings and entertaining.

Connie Chackel purchased this house in 1991

The home is centrally located in the Santa Ynez Valley; close to all wineries, tasting rooms, restaurants and the Chumash Casino. The home is tastefully decorated with a warm family feel.

Guestbook comments from the manager


I have been meaning to email or call you as well. The place was absolutely amazing for us. The group was so impressed with your home – I think that was the biggest difference to all of us, it felt like a real home, not a vacation property if that makes sense.

Everything about the place was perfect – the beds were amazing, we had so much room inside and out, the kitchen appliances were like a fine restaurant, the pool was great, and the hot tub was the best – it heats up so fast! Overall, your place made the trip so relaxing and enjoyable, we think we’ll be back for sure.

Thanks again for renting it to us!

Fantastic House!

  • 5 of 5

I believe there is a reason The Country Dreamer has all 5 star reviews--because it's worth it. We booked the house for my brother in laws 40th Birthday and it couldn't have been more perfect. It was close to Los Olivos where many wine tasting rooms and restaurants are, as well as Solvange. Not to mention the pefectly stocked kitchen (we only ended up making breakfast) if you want to eat at the house. There's plenty of room for 4 couples. If you want to bring the kids, they have an amazing play set and pool toys.

Outside it is absoultely gorgeous and we were spent most of our time. We bought stuff to make smores at the grocery store right up the road and used their outdoor bar b que pit.

This is the most important thing for me so I need to mention it. I travel quite a bit and having a comfortable bed is extremely important. I have never stayed at a property that has had a more comfortable bed. Everyone who stayed all agreed with us. Extremely comfortable.

If we ever come back this way again we will rent this place again, without hesitation.

Outstanding Property!

  • 5 of 5

As a former vacation rental owner myself, I think I have pretty high standards and this home surpassed my expectations. The house was spacious, clean and very well appointed. Our group of 8 women found the kitchen was big enough for several of us to be cooking in at once, the proximity to the wineries was great and the owner was very attentive and communicative. Perhaps our favorite thing about this property though was the outdoor living space. The great layout provides 2 lounging areas, 2 dining areas, pool, hot tub, an outdoor TV, wet bar and fire pit to boot. We would all definitely recommend this property!

The perfect escape!

  • 5 of 5

I agree with another visitor, the pictures online are nice but the house is even better in person! We decided to cancel our dinner plans the first night just so we could stay at the house and enjoy it. It's clean, spacious for our family of eight, and beautiful. The outdoor space is incredible! The home owners were near by and very helpful with any questions. There is a grocery store just minutes away which is also very helpful. I'd love to stay here again!

Awesome house!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures are great, but the house is even better! Once we saw it we tried to make sure we spent some additional time there so we could enjoy the house. It is so beautiful and comfortable. I would stay again in a heartbeat.

Perfect rental!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful home with everything you could possibly need during your stay. Home owner is very accessible and helpful in answering any questions. The house is much larger and more beautiful than photos show! It was the perfect place for our girls weekend getaway. We enjoyed every aspect of the home we hardly left to go into town!
