Overview

Santa Barbara County Estate Rental Photos and Description

Located just outside of Solvang, California, this updated ranch style home is nestled on 10 quiet and wooded acres where you'll feel like you're a hundred miles from civilization.

Our home is situated in the country with spacious lawn areas, a comfortable open and spacious floor plan with open-beamed ceilings, large stone-topped island in the kitchen and French doors opening onto multiple patios for relaxing, dining and entertaining.

With 3 bedrooms (King, Queen & two twin beds) and two and one half bathrooms, this vacation rental includes a fully equipped kitchen located on one end of the great room, three wood-burning fireplaces, large living room with formal dining area, outdoor barbeque, private spa and two large flat-screen televisions.

Our home is about a mile and a half from Solvang (a twenty minute walk). Solvang hosts many fine restaurants, lovely shops and outstanding activities to enchant young and old alike. Solvang has more than a dozen wine tasting rooms and there are 80 wineries in the Santa Ynez Valley. Our home is just down the road from Rusack Vineyards. As for restaurants and shopping, our home is a short drive (or walk) to Solvang, Los Olivos, Santa Ynez and Buellton, offering a wide variety of five-star choices!

If bicycling is of interest to you, our home is a great jumping-off point for many great cycling routes. In fact, the Amgen Tour of California individual time trial has rolled by the front of our home on several occasions.

Come escape to the country. We invite you to enjoy the best of Santa Ynez Valley country living. Don't miss this opportunity for a great get-away.

Our home awaits you.

Why Andy Trabucco chose Santa Barbara County

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.

Wish we had a longer stay!

  • 5 of 5

Had an absolutely amazing weekend. Our group explored Solvang and Los Olivos during the day and enjoyed having such a nice place to come back to for visiting in the evening. A truly gorgeous home, with very comfortable sleeping quarters. The home was spacious, yet so so cozy. Loved how close to town we were, but felt very private and secluded up in the hills. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to stay in the area!

Pictures don't do this home justice!

  • 5 of 5

The Rocking R Country Retreat was absolutely beautiful! It's in such a serene location, yet only a couple of minutes from town. The home is beautifully decorated, and while it's a very large house, it still feels cozy. The owners were very flexible with us and took our needs into consideration. This is the perfect vacation home - although I wish it could be my all the time home. We will definitely be back!

A gem

  • 5 of 5

absolutely beautiful home! My girlfriends and I had the most relaxing weekend there. We especially appreciated all the high-end products in the bathroom and cozy decor around the house. The location is convenient; you feel like you're in a secluded ranch yet it's close enough to the wineries and just a short drive into Solvang. We will definitely try to stay here again!

Wonderful Stay at Rockin R

  • 5 of 5

We rented Andy's beautiful home for the month of February and had a fabulous stay. The decor of this home is both elegant and comfortable; every day I admired some newly noted chandelier, rug, or other detail of the upscale furnishings. The kitchen was well stocked so it was easy to prepare meals in the lovely kitchen area. When we first arrived it was quite cold, so we got a lot of pleasure - and warmth - from using two of the three fireplaces. There was a large supply of chopped wood on the property. In addition, the hot tub was a real treat, especially for an East Coast person like me who had never had my "own" private hot tub. This tub is off the master bedroom, so not all that accessible for other guests. Btw, that mattress in the master bedroom was the most comfortable I've ever had! Wow, I had a whole month of sleeping really well. The only thing we might have wished for was a little more closet space for unpacking our things - maybe not an issue if you are only staying a few days.

Another favorite about this house was the outdoor lounging areas in front and back of the house. We spent a lot of time basking in the sun in each location during the February heat wave. The house has a very nice view of hills off to the west. Finally, we loved the convenient location. We enjoyed many walks into Solvang, which was just 1.5 miles away. Shopping in Buellton was almost as close by. And of course Ballard Canyon Road is just around the corner - possibly the most beautiful road in the area, even if it is roughly paved in places. I have many happy memories of our bike rides starting on Ballard Canyon Road each day.
