About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-2)

Enjoy the western way of life in a cozy guest cottage on a five acre horse ranch in Santa Ynez. This new little cottage has one bedroom with a queen size bed, one bathroom with tub and shower. The living room has a wood burning stove and cable TV. There is a full kitchen and wife throughout. Easy access to the washer and dryer. Quiet, clean and private, it's only one mile from the town of Santa Ynez, with its cute cafe's and shops. Solvang and Los Olivos are both a 5 minute drive.

Santa Ynez Valley sits just inland on the Central Coast halfway between Santa Barbara, to the South, and Santa Maria, to the North. The valley is a hidden gem with wine tasting, road biking, mountain biking, horse-back riding, hiking, and golfing. There is a small airport one mile away, which offers glider rides and is friendly toward general aviation.

The cottage is available by the month. There is an additional bunk house with beds for four available on request. Horse boarding available by request as well.

The owner lives on the property full time.

Spent 3.5 months there with my family. Audrey is one of the most amazing person we have ever met! The ranch is beautiful, clean, organized, the cottage is very well equipped (has wifi and A/C as well).

That was a pure joy to live there!

Private, Quiet, Comfortable, Beautiful, are terms that apply. Wonderful climate, scenery, close to everything and the feeling of belonging, applies to this VRBO. Audrey is a wonderful Host that meets your every need.

We have never felt so comfortable and secure. She deserves a 6 star rating for allowing folks to enjoy her horse ranch in Santa Ynez, ca.
