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

Why Connie Chackel chose Santa Barbara County

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!

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!

Great Getaway to Escape from it all

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented the house with a handful of our friends for a vow renewal weekend. The location was perfect - near El Rancho Market and a few wineries. The pictures don't do the Country Dreamer justice either. We walked into the house absolutely in awe of the size, the amenities, the privacy, the huge kitchen and outside grill, the indoor/outdoor living, and the great pool & hot tub to relax in. We fully utilized each space of the house and never once felt cramped.

The house was in very good condition and very clean when we arrived. The house rules and instructions were clearly laid out and easy to understand.

Connie was also very helpful in suggesting wineries for our venue. We ended up booking our private party with Sunstone and it did not disappoint! The wine was incredible and so was the staff.

Overall it was a great experience and made for some very special memories with our close friends. Thanks Connie and David!
