About the property

house, 4732 sq. ft., 7 bedrooms, Sleeps 14, 7 bathrooms

Take the guilt out of traveling to wine country with your kids by staying at Villa Chaparral. While you plan a vineyard tour of Santa Ynez, the kids will be happily exploring nearly 4 acres of fully fenced, beautifully landscaped grounds featuring an in-ground pool, trampoline, and ping pong table. Located in Santa Barbara, but close to the route to wine country, this spectacular gated French Country Estate is close to everything but feels worlds apart. With soaring beam ceilings and large expansive rooms, each with en-suite bath, this home is ideal for extended families and groups of friends looking for luxurious accommodations.

The main house is beautifully furnished and tastefully decorated, complete with formal dining room, sitting room and separate great room offering a gourmet kitchen, breakfast nook and comfortable seating area. The downstairs master bedroom is light and spacious with French doors leading out to the pool area. A bonus room just outside the master features extra sleeping options as well as a crib and changing table. Children will delight in the playroom upstairs, complete with books, toys and a TV for watching movies. A wisteria arbor leads to the separate guesthouse, offering two bedrooms, one bath, and a shared living area with kitchenette.

The charming, elegant grounds beautifully compliment the graceful interior of this property. Multiple seating areas and lounges are available for sunbathing, as well as tucked away areas in the shade. The outdoor fireplace is wonderful during the evenings, and the swimming pool can be enjoyed all day long. This lovely property provides an excellent experience of Santa Barbara life, just 5 minutes to La Cumbre Shopping Mall, 10 minutes to Hendry’s Beach, and half an hour from the best that Santa Barbara wine country has to offer.

Pets are welcomed at this home with appropriate screening and accompanying pre-authorization.

We had our mom's 80th birthday family reunion at this house. We filled it to full capacity of 14. This weekend was beyond wonderful with plenty of food, love and laughter. Everyone in our group agreed that it was really somthing very special. Come Sunday no one really wanted to leave. Don't hesitate to consider this as a vacation option. Santa Barbara and Monticito are wonderful towns but you might not want to venture too far from this property!

Absolutely stunning, secluded paradise!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough wonderful things about this lovely property. I rented it to celebrate my 38th birthday with 9 of my closest girlfriends. We are a mature group of professional women and we do this annually as a way of getting away from the busyness of everyday life and enjoy some grown-up girls time. This property was the perfect retreat for us. The home and guest house were so clean, the linens and beds are top notch and very comfortable. We love the huge kitchen island and the vintage stove where we prepared lots of delicious meals and salads. The surround sound music (indoors and outdoors) was fantastic! The jacuzzi and outdoor seating areas were our favorite areas to gather. The appliances, dishes, utensils and silverware were of great quality and we enjoyed them. And the dishwasher and washer/dryer were the icing on a beautiful cake! There are so many great things I could say about this property but then my review would be way too long. This was certainly an unforgettable experience thanks to this wonderful home. It exceeded our expectations beyond measure.

If there was one thing that I could say was a small problem it was that the pool never heated up even though it says it would and due to recent storms there were lots of worms and bugs in the bottom of it, but that wasn't a big issue considering we rented during winter time. We enjoyed the jacuzzi instead, which was perfectly clean. Also, the television in the great room went out a couple of times, but we are a smart group and were able to get it going again. Other than that everything was perfect!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your feedback! We're so glad you had a great stay overall. We're sorry you ran into some issues with pool. We will definitely look into that, but it may have been an issue with the outdoor temperature and all the rain we've been having. We'll ensure that there is nothing wrong with the heating device. Again, thanks so much for the review and we'd love to have you again!

This is a large French Country style home on a gougeous property. .

  • 4 of 5

10 family members had plenty of space to enjoy this beautiful property. The beds are extremely comfortable. Room off master bed room has a trundle bed that is best used for kids. Not comfortable for adults. Kitchen & great room were fun gathering spot. We did not use pool, but patio area with outdoor dining & fireplace is lovely.

Perfect Home for Friendly Gathering

  • 5 of 5

This property is amazing. My wife and I, along with 4 other couples had an incredible stay. The pool and hot tube were a great addition along with the workout facility. Upon arrival it was well maintained and very clean. The toughest part about the trip was leaving the Villa to explore Santa Barbara. Would highly recommend this rental to anyone looking for an immaculate property to host friends and family.

Stunning Chateau for Families

  • 5 of 5

My family of 10 stayed at Villa Chaparral for 3 nights and wished we could stay for months! We have stayed in many vacation homes over the years and this by far was the best place ever. There was something for everyone here. My parents loved the outdoor fireplace and gorgeous property, my kids LOVED the play equipment and trampoline, and we loved how well appointed everything was.

The property and house were extremely well maintained. From the cleanliness of the pool, to the landscape surrounding the entire property, to the gorgeous bedrooms and bathrooms and to the fully stocked kitchen.

We cannot wait to come back and will definitely recommend it to our friends.
