About the property

Paradise Valley Retreat - Wine Country Resort-Style Living

Escape to a fantastic wonderland in Santa Ynez Valley! Situated on a 1-acre corner lot in a beloved neighborhood, Paradise Valley Retreat is sure to satisfy anyone's need to escape, relax, and have fun. Once here, Guests may never want to go back to a fast-paced world! The speed of life in the Valley is a little bit slower, the stride easy and uncomplicated.

The home received a masterful makeover in 2014; with casual-chic furnishings, and every creature comfort considered. The gracious floor plan is a well-conceived design, and the rooms flow together effortlessly. Every detail has been considered for a luxury experience.

The Family Room has soaring ceilings and promises to be the gathering place for most indoor activity. A game table, robust 80" flat screen TV w/surround sound, and Sonos music system will keep everyone entertained. As an alternative to this relaxing space, enjoy some healthy competition in the Billiard Room with more Sonos music, and a 50" flat screen TV.

A fully-stocked gourmet country Kitchen features traditional style hand-waxed distressed pine cabinets, granite counters, and a massive center island. Every possible amenity has been included in this inviting space! Nibble on tasty treats from local artisan growers, cook a fabulous holiday meal in grand and effortless style, or just hang out and watch the outdoor activity around the pool.

The Bedrooms are stylish and romantic, each offering high quality memory-foam mattresses. The Master Suite offers a 60" flat screen TV, king-size bed, full Master Bathroom, and sliding door access to the backyard.

The three additional guest Bedrooms feature chic furnishings, luxurious linens, and front yard views. Two of the rooms offer king-size beds & 50" flat screen TV's, and the third bedroom is outfitted with two twin beds. Two more Bathrooms, and an efficient Laundry Room, complete the room amenities.

The property itself is a virtual playground. Like an island-style vacation resort, the massive stone design of the lavish pool will easily draw out the kid in everyone. Even the most reserved adult won't be able to resist the pool's water slide, nor the temptation to splash around under the dancing water features. A Sport Court w/basketball, a horseshoe pit, a sandbox, and an outdoor BBQ Island all combine to make the backyard a recreational dream; just waiting for year-round fun and outdoor activity.

Even guests vehicles have been considered, with a luxurious place of their own in the spacious 4 car garage!

If one can pull themselves away to venture offsite, it will be well worth it. Tour local estate wineries, or sip and savor at numerous wine tasting rooms in downtown Los Olivos and Solvang. Take a glider ride, sample Danish pastries, try your luck at the Chumash Casino, or hike and bike just about anywhere. The possibilities are endless!

Pack plenty of sunscreen, an excellent book, and a desire for adventure and fun! Plan to stay for a while because once here, you may never want to leave this amazing resort-style retreat in Paradise. Welcome to Wine Country Resort-Style Living!

Terrific home in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Our second time staying at this beautifully maintained home, in a perfect location, just minutes from Solvang and wineries and a terrific market. There is so much for my family of eight to do, from the gorgeous pool and spa that we all enjoyed to the swing and sand box for my 22 month old grandson. Kitchen a cook's dream, with everything available. This year we visited the ostrich farm with two of the grandchildren and all of us were delighted in the excursion. Lots to do in the area, too. Highly recommend this home.

Amazing Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect house for all ages: pool, sandbox, and swing for the kids, basketball, hot tub, and billiards for the adults. It was like a dream! There was so much fun to be had at the house that we almost felt like we didn't need to leave. But the nearby shopping, wineries, and great restaurants eventually drew us out from this oasis. The house was elegant, cozy, and well stocked. We loved the fireplace in the dining room and the Apple TV. Everything worked and the management was very responsive. Can't wait to go back!

The property is great but DO NOT rent it !!

  • 1 of 5

If you are looking to have a good time, relaxing time and enjoy the overall beauty of this home? DO NOT RENT THIS PROPERTY!!! Never ever in our many many rental experiences have we had a more disappointing disservice done to us. They were completely inflexible to a 2 hour early check in, really? There were multiple and I mean multiple signs posted on every wall in every room of what NOT to do and what you can't do, how loud you may or may not speak. How to flush toilets, how much paper to use. How far open or closed you MUST leave the blinds so the neighbors are not affected by the TV glare. There is a fire pit on the property that they advertise for enjoyment, but you can't use it (see the sign) because of people talking while out there it is permanently shut down for use.

There are security cameras all around the house, including one inside the attached garage, which we know for fact is illegal. Pointing directly at the entrance into the house, I walked into the garage to retrieve something from my car in my under ware and noticed this camera so my husband covered it with a towel. Within several hours I received a text to remove it, which means they are spying on the guests without their knowledge or consent. Upon arriving back at the property later that evening, someone had entered the home, removed the towel and angled the camera to a different area in the garage. There is a 4 car garage and a huge driveway but there are signs posted everywhere NOT to park in the driveway under any circumstances or you may forfeit your deposit.

The listing description is somewhat accurate, the customer service is awful and entirely rigid, I would NOT recommend this property to anyone looking to have a nice time, because you won't. You will be recorded and watched via the security cameras on and in the property, that was clearly proven to us.

This rental is not worthy of the one star I gave it. We have recently discovered that all VRBO, Homeaway and other related sites in the Santa Barbara County area will no longer be available for rentals after Jan 1 2017. If you are a future renter of this property and committed with a payment in full, beware of having your privacy and all other activities being recorded and monitored without your permission, complete inflexibility by the rental office, and your time spent there will be reading the numerous ridiculous signs every ten feet dictating your behavior. Our deposit was returned in full.

Owner's Response: Dear Joyce, Thank you for being our guest at Paradise Valley Retreat, and thank you for taking the time to review this property and our company. We do our best to accommodate an early arrival time if at all possible, however, sometimes we must stick with our 3pm check-in policy because of many moving parts in our company, including our housekeeping crew, inspection team, homeowner, maintenance team, etc., who are all working to prepare the house for your arrival and make everything look clean and tidy for your stay. We do post many signs throughout the property, and the majority of our guests are happy and satisfied that we have explanations on how to operate appliances, how to access certain areas of the house, who to call in an emergency, etc. Thank you for providing this feedback. The fire pit is not advertised, as it is inoperable at this time because of high fire dangers. We do disclose that there are outdoor cameras at the property; 1 at the front of the house, 1 at the back, and 1 in the garage, all of which are for security reasons. We inform our guests to please park in the garage so to not disturb any neighbors as much as possible. We of course want our guests to enjoy their stay, and we also want our neighbors to enjoy their right to quiet privacy in their homes. The City of Santa Barbara does not allow rentals of fewer than 30 nights, however, the County of Santa Barbara has not made this decision yet. They may make this policy starting September 2018, however, this house and others in Santa Barbara County are still able to be rented for fewer than 30 nights. Thank you, again, for your feedback. If any future guests have any questions for us, please contact us directly and we are happy to help you! This is a wonderful property and our guests thoroughly enjoy staying here. Sincerely, Tera Neumann Guest & Tenant Relations Manager Paradise Retreats

We just left left this property yesterday after a 3 night stay with my husband and son, my sister, her husband and her 2 kids. I can't wait to go back again next year! We had so much fun playing in the pool with the kids, cooking, watching movies and just relaxing reading a book. We only left the property to go to the El Rancho Market to pick up food. The house is beautiful with an open layout which makes it easy to hang out with family, the beds are comfortable, and the pool with waterslide was so much fun. The property manager, Smith, was so helpful. He met us at the property upon check in and gave us a tour of all of the gadgets that control the house. Thank you!!!
