Santa Ynez House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms - 1 Bath - (Sleeps 4)

This is a newer Mediterranean Style guest house extension. It is located on five acres, one mile from the little village of Santa Ynez-a nice walk to the local coffee shops and restaurants. You will pass horse ranches and an Alpaca ranch. It is totally private with it's own driveway and entrance. A peaceful retreat with beautiful views and a seasonal stream at the bottom of the property, but with many activities nearby.

Our neighbors in Santa Ynez have: wine tasting and winery tours, at the over 70 local wineries. These include Firestone, Fess Parker, Gainey, Sunstone etc.

Also found are the Miniature horse, Alpaca and Ostrich Ranches, and the Chumash Casino. There are also the Vintage Motorcycle and Elverhoy Museums, the Maverick Saloon, and several famous horse ranches with Andalusians, Arabs, Thoroughbreds, Peruvian Pasos and many more. Monty Robert's famous 'join up' program is only 15 minutes away. Great cycling trails, used for training by Lance Armstrong.

Wonderful tranquil location - close to SY: We are located on a private partly unpaved road, only 1 mile from the village of Santa Ynez, with very little road traffic.

A safe and quiet area of horse ranches and an alpaca ranch on the road to the town.

There is lots of off road parking on the property, private separate entry gates and driveway, and an outside patio and gas barbecue

Santa Ynez boasts great restaurants, a coffee shop, a historical museum, post office, bank, gas station, pharmacy, florist, wine tasting rooms, an art gallery, a cycling shop for rentals and tours, and even a tiny library!

About Colin

We are a retired couple who have travelled extensively and love the Santa Ynez valley and the friendly people here.

Why Colin chose Santa Barbara County

The property is in a quiet safe area but quite close to small town with all it's facilities, great restaurants, post office, historical western museum, great golf courses, many horse ranches, gyms, and many more attractions.

5 stars!

  • 5 of 5

Colin and Rosie really make you feel at home! The guest house ist bright, spotless clean, very well equipped and updated. It's wunderfull to sleep in a such a peacefull setting. Pool and hot tub are the icing on the cake (not only for our teenage boys, but also for those who want to swim). We wish we could have stayed much longer, but we couldn't change our planning! Santa Barbara and the beaches are a short 30 minutes drive. Santa Ynez is a very charming little town and makes you feel a bit in a western film. Also there are very good supermarkets in Santa Ynez or Solvang so that you can have a great barbecue on the terrace. Wineries and plenty of restaurants are just around th corner. We can definitly and warmly reccomand this property. Colin and Rosie: it has been a pleasure meetting you and we hope to see you again .... Greetings from Switzerland!

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We visited Santa Ynez to see family in the area and do a little sightseeing ourselves. We could not have asked for better with Colin and Rosi. The guest house was perfect for our family of three (and a cousin or two having sleepovers with our daughter) We were close to everything- beaches, wineries, Santa Barbara and Solvang. Colin and Rosi could not be more welcoming and friendly. The house is connected to the main but has it's own entrance and driveway- so very private. We loved the pool and hot tub and the peacefulness of the setting. We will definitely be back- we are already making plans for next year!

Triple Diamond Gang

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at Colin & Rosi beautiful guest house as we attended a wedding in Solvang. House was perfect for our group of 5 and had everything we needed plus extra as Colin and Rosi ensure you have the best holiday experience. They are so helpful and even offered to pick us up after the reception if we needed a ride. We will definitely return when we get a chance to get back to that area. Thanks again for everything Colin & Rosi.....

Lovely weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We visited Santa Ynez to celebrate our anniversary and could not have picked a better place to stay. Colin & Rosi were so friendly and welcoming. The guest house is good size, very clean and the entrance is completely separate from the main house, so very private. We floated in the pool during the day and relaxed in the hot tub at night. The house is only about a mile from the town, so we walked into town for breakfast and dinner. Also, they have installed an AC unit (saw an earlier review that said they didn't have one), but we didn't need to use it at all. The house stays nice and cool. We can't wait to come back again!

Perfect mini-Vacay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a delightful stay at Colin and Rosi's lovely guest house. We were celebrating our 7-year wedding anniversary and are already making plans for next year! The property is large, clean and inviting. Colin and Rosi are gracious hosts, and Rosi was even so generous as to lend me her shawl since I did a poor job of packing. We always love to escape to Santa Ynez, and going forward this will be our number one rental. Thank you Colin and Rosi for your attention to detail and making our visit most enjoyable!

A Perfect Anniversary Get Away in Santa Ynez

  • 5 of 5

Colin & Rosi are absolutely wonderful people and hosts. The property is perfect for time away and provides a great level of privacy as it is faced away from the main house and located on such a large lot, with it's own gate and driveway that you would never know anyone else is there.

Colin & Rosi were friendly without being intrusive and our dogs (Rhodesian Ridgebacks) loved the property more than we did. It's large and grassy with a pool and Jacuzzi (fenced off) with plenty of room to relax, unwind and enjoy time away. We were so comfortable with the house and it has 2 bedrooms with comfortable linens and furnishings.

We were able to cook and enjoy fresh food/snacks as well as great wifi and cable programming for relaxing on the couch. It was almost better than being at home. We are very familiar with the area as we visit regularly but Rosi & Colin left us a list of area restaurants and recommendations.

Everything was immaculate and clean which is always a must for us to be comfortable. We were even comfortable to leave our dogs while we went wine tasting and out to dinners. Our furry friends did not want to leave actually....and were very welcome to visit our hosts.

We can't wait to return to visit again. Colin & Rose made us feel like family and their hospitality made our 15th Anniversary so special and memorable. Thank you for a wonderful experience!
