Why Andy Trabucco chose Solvang

We purchased this property because we fell in love with the peace and quiet we experienced as we walked around the home. We completely remodeled the home and made it our own.

What makes this estate unique

The bright morning light in the kitchen, the open airy feeling of the yards, the relaxing nature of the patios and the sunsets off the front porch are some of our favorite aspects of our home.

Believe The Hype!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for my family to stay in for my mom's 70th birthday. We had old people, we had tired parents in their 30's wanting to relax, we had toddlers, we had babies. I feel like the value of this home and experience was extremely high and we'd totally go back in a heartbeat. Here are some of the highlights:

Location- if you're doing Solvang, there is NO better location. And it's 15-45 minutes from anything you'd want to do in the area

Layout of home- amazing and separate. Two separate wings! Kids were asleep and heard nothing at night. Old people were asleep in the morning and heard nothing, even with TV's on and talking at full volume.

Fixtures and decor- top notch

Tv and Sound- awesome for a movie night (not a "honey grab a tv at BJ's for the rental home")

Outdoor sitting areas- beautiful

Grounds- beautiful

Front gate and circular driveway- so fancy and cool!

Hot tub- didn't even get to try it but what a nice touch!

Kitchen- great for cooking! 6 burners + 2 ovens, good cookware

Showers and plumbing- awesome, didn't want to get out (of the shower that is haha)

Pack of deer upon arrival in driveway- uh... what?!

Privacy- perfect!

Fireplace- awesome and so easy to use!

As you can see, I really have nothing bad to say about this lovely home. The best part of it was the warm homey feeling you get. It was as clean and sterile as you'd want a vacation rental to be but it felt like you were staying at a really old friend's house. The Trabucco family's warmth honestly fills the whole place- I'm not a sappy guy but I really mean that. It was nice to be there with my family AND I DON'T EVEN LIKE MY FAMILY! jk jk Dad if you're reading this, luv ya ;)

Fantastic!!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing home and property to truly enhance your trip to the valley! My wife and I and our friends stayed for a weekend and found ourselves coming back a little early each afternoon from wine tasting to enjoy the property! It is such an ideal setting. Close to town, close to wineries and just far enough outside of town to enjoy nature. The home itself is so tastefully done and very cozy. Just has a great family feel and openness to it. We could not have imagined staying in a better place for our trip and really hope to return! Andy was very attentive throughout the booking process and right up until we checked in. Very welcoming and had great information for us prior to our arrival for things to do and information about the property! It could not have been any smoother. Thanks again Andy and Family!!

A Retreat Indeed!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most incredible stay at Rockin' R. Ranch. Everything was fantastic, including all the interactions we had with Andy (who was beyond accommodating), to the clean, comfortable, gorgeous home- it was perfect. My now husband and I stayed here the weekend of our wedding & it was absolute bliss! From the beautiful backyard, spacious rooms, hot tub, etc. It was so welcoming. The home is so well-cared for and feels loved. Thank you so much for giving these newlyweds a home to aspire to! Many thanks!

Loved It Just As Much the 2nd Time

  • 5 of 5

We had a chance to revisit this property for 2 nights this past weekend for a family celebration. Just as wonderful as we remembered from a couple years back except even better with the addition of a bocce ball court. Such a great game for all ages! This home has an amazing design and such a great feel to it inside and the landscaping around it, too. The owner is terrific with communications and so welcoming. Highly recommend for a place to find a little joy, peace, and some very luxurious home comforts in this area.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house. The outdoor areas are beautiful and comfortable. Had fun playing bocce with great views everywhere you look. Master bedroom is huge and great bathroom. The kitchen is great and well equipped. Very close to towns but you feel removed. Good outdoor hot tub. We'll go back.

Perfect for a relaxing girls weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great visit--the house was lovely and perfect for a girls trip. We spent our time outside enjoying the garden, walking to the nearby winery, and taking in the beautiful scenery. Very clean and comfortable property!
