    About this property

    Family Friendly Home With Lovely Garden and pet Hens

    Family-friendly holiday home in Santa Ynez with fitness centre
    Ideally located within the Santa Ynez/Solvang/Los Olivos area. A roughly 1200 sq ft guesthouse that can sleep up to 6 adults comfortably: Lots of toys geared towards the very young and under 18 crew. There are two queen size beds and two twin xl day beds. Fast wifi internet and cable TV. We place age appropriate toys in the home . We provide eggs from our pet friendly hens, milk, bread, coffee, tea, juice and seasonal organic fruit from our garden for your meals. The space is arranged to provide our guests (families, couples, & friends) a wonderful experience that is memorable. There is a large living room that has been decorated to provide a restorative environment with comfy furniture, a large TV with cable, a dinner table that has seating for 6. There is a well appointed kitchen, with pots, pans, plates, to commonly used cooking items such as cooking oil, spices, and breakfast items. There is a washer and dryer for use. The bedrooms are furnished with luxury linens. An immaculate clean home. We maintain a high standard regarding providing a clean home with a spotless bathroom that is supplied with toiletries. The guests' area has its own private patio space if guests want privacy away from the shared meditation garden. The private patio area has a gas grill for BBQ; and there is also a casual outdoor dining area. Fantastic space to view the night sky infused with stars. No light pollution, so if there isn't any cloud cover, this area is wonderful for viewing stars. There is plenty of room for children to play within the home, the private patio area, and in the meditation garden. We encourage guests to engage in chalk art on the concrete floors in the patio area. A relaxing activity for both young and old. We provide lots of toys, games. and crafts for children, an indoor tent with panda sleeping bags; and we even have an electric car (10 and younger) for children to tootle around the property. The highlight for most of our guests would be our very friendly chickens that roam around in the shared meditation garden. Our chickens are social, they know their names, and they love to be fed and cuddled. All our guests, young and older, tend to enjoy their contact with the chickens; and they feeling infused with joy and amazed at how personable the chickens can be. We often hear from guests how they loved the ability to hug a chicken and to hear them trill (like a cat's purr). However, if you fear chickens, or are not quite an animal person, then you can also ignore the chickens and still be able to enjoy the garden and home without any contact with the chickens. There is a large driveway so we allow our guests up to three cars to park in our driveway while staying at the home. Exceptional Wifi quality (not easily found in the valley ) is via speedy cable. If you are a young family with an infant, we have a pack and play with linens, a stroller, baby bath, high chair, play items. We encourage young children to engage in crafts, board games, and chalk art on the driveway or patio area. If you are a group of girlfriends or couples, we provide adult board games, and we encourage you to enjoy wine and meals in the garden and engage in chalk art in the patio area. We have lots of suggestions for places to visit, wineries to consider, places to eat, areas to hike, bike, and swim. There is also plenty of space for storing any large items during your stay such as bikes. Cyclists may use the garage to store bikes, stands, and other equipment and to use the garage as a work space. If you are coming into the area for bike riding, we can suggest many local trails. If you are coming into the area for wine tasting, we can make suggestions for boutique wine venues. If you are coming for a friend or family member's wedding, then we are very likely located near the wedding venue. We have been told by nearly all of our guests how central we are to everything in the Santa Ynez valley. In order to provide safety for our chickens, we do not allow our guests to bring their pets without discussing the size and temperament of their pet. We do not allow pets bigger than 30 pounds, dogs that shed their fur or have a strong prey instinct. There is an additional $50 per day for owners who bring their pets to cover cleaning costs. We will waive the cleaning fee if after the guests leave we note that there isnt any damage or additional cleaning needed. Our focus and goal is to support you in having a wonderful restorative time while visiting our fantastic Santa Ynez Valley. Thank you for considering staying at our home.

      5/5 Excellent

        All That and More

        Peter was so welcoming and made our stay feel like home. The house was equipped with everything one would need. Truly relaxing!

        5/5 Excellent

          The Owners, The Property, the Chickens and Jaayze were all AMAZING.

          What a wonderful Girls getaway. Plenty of room for all of us and a great place to relax outside or in with your glass of wine. Bev and Peter were amazing host. Our refrigerator was packed with Milk, coffee creamer, fresh fresh eggs, bread homemade apricot preserves and more, Our host always wanted to know if they could get us anything else just let them know and it appeared. We are all laughing because we all miss the chickens and beautiful surroundings, The beds and the linens were wonderful. We are all looking forward to coming back in Nov. or Dec. Our Security Deposit was refunded the day we left. Thank You so much for making this a really enjoyable trip. Can't wait to come back All the Girls say Hi and what a great experience this was. Loved It! Carlene and the Girls

          5/5 Excellent

            Great place to stay

            I endorse what has already been said on the recent 5 star reviews below. This is a spacious, clean, well set-up and good value place to stay in the Santa Ynez Valley. Communication with Peter during the booking process was completely smooth and responsive and when we arrived we found Peter and Bev to be thoughtful and gracious hosts. We are a family of four with two kids (eight and six years of age). The accommodation had plenty of space for us, and all the amenities that we required. The fridge was kindly stocked with a few of the basics to get us started - fresh eggs, juice, milk, bread and butter - which was much appreciated. The kids enjoyed meeting and feeding the chickens, which were no trouble at all and a pleasant idiosyncracy of the site. We would certainly recommend this place.

            4/5 Good

              Best choice all things considered

              Relaxing, convenient, delightful! We looked around in the area. This was convenient to the things-to-do in the area (Solvang, wineries, etc.). It was charming, calm, quiet and private. The chickens were tame and added an enjoyable aspect. Were there possibly better places to stay? Very likely yes: But they would have cost at least twice as much per night. For the cost of a one-room motel in Solvang proper, we were treated to a more spacious two bedroom private home in a quiet neighborhood, with a 4-minute drive to Solvang central. And with 2 teenage kids along for the ride, the choice was pretty simple. Next time we go to the area, they will be first on our list. (Unless we win big in the lottery, in which case we'll buy one the local wineries).
