About Christie Hopper

We moved to Santa Ynez in February of 2012. We used to live in Santa Barbara. My Husband, Myself and my Mother moved in together after my Dad passed away. We bought this nice house with some acreage and it came with this nice guest house which we decided to set up as a vacation rental.

Christie Hopper purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Christie Hopper chose Santa Barbara County

We really like this area because it is a small community and feels like a town from 50 years ago where times were not so hectic. It's a nice slow pace here.

What makes this cottage unique

We love our property because of the country feel, the spacious lawn and the feeling of being surrounded by trees and a beautiful view of the mountains. Lots of nature around too. Squirrels & birds, just saw a family of Quail's crossing the road the other day, so cute!

Lovely Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed in Christie's lovely cottage in Santa Ynez over a weekend. It was the perfect size for two people. Extremely comfortable and cozy. Would look into staying there the next time I visit SY. Christie, thank you very much for opening your home to us. We are truly grateful for your hospitality.

Great dog-friendly spot!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful spot to stay, especially if you have dogs. The yard is fully fenced with so much space! Dog items such as bowls, poop bags and bed were thoughtfully left for us to use.

The space itself is a small studio with 2 twin day beds. No problem for me, but a little less comfy for my 6'3 husband. It was clean and neat with lots of items to use. I really appreciated the bug spray. It's a studio, so it's small, but there is so much space in the yard with plenty of seating. Our first night we got takeout and ate at the picnic table in the yard and later enjoyed some local wine on the patio.

Christine and her husband were lovely hosts, very friendly and thoughtful. We would absolutely stay again! A great value right in Santa Ynez!

Incredible way to experience wine country

  • 5 of 5

This place is incredible. Bill and Christie (the owners) are the nicest people we've ever encountered using VRBO. The property is great for dogs. We brought ours with us and he loved running around in the huge open areas. Also Christie is a true dog lover, and you can tell with the way everything is set up. If you're going to go up to the Santa Barbara / Santa Ynez area, we can't recommend this place enough.
