Valley View Ranch - Relaxed Elegance in Santa Ynez Valley
Surrounded by rolling green pastures dotted with white fences and majestic horses, Valley View Ranch sits proudly on over four acres in the World renowned Santa Ynez equestrian community. In a quiet neighborhood, hawks soar against expansive blue skies to create a spectacular and serene backdrop for a memorable vacation.
Recently remodeled to perfection, this 6 bedroom ranch home offers all the amenities expected in a first class luxury vacation rental.
The Great Room and Media Room are centrally located between two separate wings of the home. With a large country kitchen, sitting area, fireplace, and casual dining, this room will quickly become a favorite gathering place. Step through French doors to the outdoor dining patio conveniently located near meal preparation in the kitchen.
The adjacent Media Room is comfortable and ready for movie nights with a large flat screen TV, Blu-Ray technology, and stereo system. Two built-in desks make it possible for busy professionals to stay connected while on vacation yet remain close to family fun.
The south wing consists of the Formal Living and Dining Rooms, Master Suite, 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The Formal Living Room with comfortable furnishings and natural tones centers on the fireplace and stone hearth. French doors open to the expansive backyard and pool area allowing streaming sunlight to flood the space. The Formal Dining Room with full size wine cooler and butler's pantry is conveniently located between the Living Room and Kitchen.
The romantic and serene Master Bedroom is a place to calm the mind and renew the spirit. A large and very comfortable 4 poster bed invites lazy mornings and breakfast in bed. Throw open the French doors to allow valley breezes to fill this bright and private haven.
Step into a luxurious spa-like experience in the Master Bathroom. With wall to wall marble the ambiance is cool and serene. An elegant chandelier is suspended above the double spa tub. The large walk-in glass shower also has an exterior door to access a second shower outside. Indulge in a few more minutes of restful quiet time on the double chaise lounge on the adjacent private patio.
Two more bedrooms are located in this wing. A smaller Master Bedroom with full bath is equally as comfortable as the main Master Suite and has corner views of the front yard. A charming room with twin beds is next door with access to a shared hall bath with walk-in shower.
The north wing is located off the Media Room and consists of 2 bedrooms, hall bathroom, large laundry room and attached Guest Quarters.
The side by side bedrooms with queen-size beds share the hall bath. Walk through the large, well-equipped Laundry Room and continue through to the Guest Quarters with queen-size bed, full bath, sitting room and private door to access the pool patio just outside.
The most enticing feature of this rambling property by far, is the vast backyard playground. Relax poolside on comfy lounge chairs, while the younger set enjoys the curved pool slide, or the charming kids tree house. Nearby, a garage has been converted to a game room with ping pong table, darts, exercise equipment and games for more fun.
The large outdoor kitchen will become the central gathering place year round. The refrigerator and automatic ice maker will keep all the necessary beverages cold from kick-off to the final whistle! Suspended over the outdoor teak dining table nearby are restaurant style gas heaters to warm diners on cool valley nights.
Should you decide to venture out away from this perfect vacation home, Santa Ynez Valley is rich with activity and adventure. Sign up for a private wine tasting at local vineyards, hike to Figueroa Mountain to see the wild flowers, pick local apples, or relax in fine dining establishments in historical locations. The lifestyle in the valley is relaxed and inviting no matter what your interests may be.
This home was truly meant for family fun, outdoor living, and long lazy days. Welcome home to Valley View Ranch.

The Shultz Family reunion, Mary, Cathy and Scott enjoyed your lovely home and all the amenities . What a beautiful way to spend quality time with family. November 3rd will be our 65th wedding anniversary- doesn't get any better than that!
A truly beautiful home, it's warm and welcoming and the perfect place for a family getaway. Wineries, restaurants & markets are all minutes away - but you'll want to spend as much time as you can here. The kitchen is the center of the home. It's big & well-equipped enough to feed a small army. There is a formal dining room, a living room, a breakfast area (in the kitchen) with a big table and a separate media room - all in this single-story home - creating a great deal of space without ever being too far away from each other. The six bedrooms are split equally between the two ends of the home - allowing for some additional privacy, if so desired. The master bedroom and bathroom are spectacular and all the other rooms are also exceptionally nice and well outfitted. The only common complaint among our group were the pillow tops on the beds - as they were all a bit too lumpy. Every common room opens up to the backyard, which is where we spent the majority of our time. There is an outdoor dining area with gas powered heat lamps to keep warm in the evenings. There is a huge outdoor kitchen, equipped with a nice BBQ, a smoker, a mini fridge & an ice machine. There is a fire pit with sofas & chairs. There are lounge chairs & umbrellas all around the pool and Jacuzzi. The pool has a wide first step - large enough for young kids to play in waist high depth. Bonus feature was a hole in the center of that first step that allows you to insert one of the umbrellas, creating a huge amount of shade while our kids splashed in the water. The pool also includes a fun, twisty water slide, which is activated by a remote control. (In fact, the entire yard is operable from the remote - space and pool heaters, pool lights, etc.). When our kids weren't in the pool, they were in the tree house, which had a ladder going up and tube slide going down. The tree house had real doors and windows with screens. Amazing. The entire yard overlooks the countryside - which couldn't be any more serene. As for negatives, there really are not many. Other than the beds mentioned above, the only other improvements I'd look for is much better wifi (couldn't get a signal unless I was in the same room as the router) and the outdoor shower needed to be repaired (or at least we couldn't get it on). Bottom line, this home was awesome and we'd come back again in a heartbeat!
Smith was very professional and helpful on our arrival to the home. We loved the expresso maker. It was a big hit with the family. Lots of space for everyone to enjoy their stay.
This home very comfortably can sleep 12 people. It was an amazing find and we were given great service when we arrived. So much space and everything is very well kept.
I have experienced some of the most lovely rental retreat properties in the Central Coast and Valley View was right up there with the best. I lead a womens' business retreats and we are always looking for luxury, relaxation, beauty and nature - and this property met all those desires and more. So wonderful to be in a gorgeous rural environment - hear the mockingbirds and the horses and watch the red tail hawks circling above. This is a wonderful home with spacious rooms and a delightful energy. I know you'll love it. ~ Lindsay
Valley View not only had a sweet spanning valley view, but this incredible home and gorgeous setting gets a five star from our group! The pool area was fantastic with plenty of lounge chairs and pillows, and the water slide was a bonus plus! This house had everything we needed and there was much to love, including a super deluxe wall coffee maker, a chiller for our wine, and a full sound system through out. We were there for the full moon and the view was truly insane! So beautiful and peaceful. Our bed was so comfortable that I am hoping to recreate it back home, best night of sleep ever! Smith was really nice and got us checked in with full property details. We look forward to sharing more good times here in the future with family and friends, this property comes highly recommended.
We had a family gathering here this August. Working with Paradise Retreats was very easy and everything went smoothly as far as the paperwork and check-in process. I loved the personal service of having one of their agents, Smith, walk us through the ins and outs of the home and to answer any questions we had. During our stay we came across a few quagmires but didn't bother to call their 24-hour number. It would be nice if they put more detailed instructions in the guest book for kitchen appliances or maybe an FAQ. We thoroughly enjoyed the exquisite home. The kids did not want to leave the salt water pool that was warmed to the perfect temp. I loved our evenings in the formal living area, I felt we utilized the majority of the features like the game room, outdoor grill and pool. We didn't know until the last day about the horseshoes out front! Wish we could have stayed longer! Thank you for sharing this beautiful home with us!
