About this listing
You found it!! The ideal place for a romantic getaway, a break-from-the-stress-of-life getaway or the luxury-resort-in-your-own-private-home getaway in the heart of Central Coast Wine Country! Nestled in the rolling hills above Solvang, your home base will feel a thousand miles from civilization, yet you will be centrally located, just minutes away from activities, great restaurants and award winning wineries of Los Olivos, Santa Ynez, Solvang and Lompoc.
Whether for one or two couples, this is exceptional personal comfort in a relaxed environment. Your home is an immaculate, fully appointed, 2 bedroom, 2 bath home. The bright and open living room with vaulted ceilings has a 45" flat screen TV (service by Direct TV), DVD player, a remote controlled fireplace and Wi-Fi throughout the house. For a single couple, you have more than in a suite in a luxury hotel, given the special amenities on the property and the privacy you enjoy. For two couples the home is ideally designed, as each bedroom and bath are on opposite sides of the house, allowing for optimum privacy for all.
The Master bedroom offers a luxurious king sized bed, 32" flat screen TV, en suite bath and walk-in closet. The second bedroom has a luxurious Queen bed, 32" flat screen TV and is adjacent to a full private bathroom, complete with washer and dryer.
Both beds provide ultimate comfort with plush mattresses and hypo-allergenic pillows covered by Egyptian cotton sheets. The King bed has a dual controlled electric blanket and the Queen bed a microsoft thermal blanket. Rooms are both incredibly quiet and private.
The fully equipped gourmet kitchen has a Keurig coffee maker, a full array of coffees pods as well as gourmet teas and a selection of spices and seasonings for those who want to "dine at home". Guests are welcomed with a basket of fresh fruit and bagels and cream cheese, so your first morning can be enjoyed relaxing with your coffee and bagel at one of your two private patios: either enjoying the beauty of the gardens and private grounds or overlooking award winning vineyards, imagining yourself sitting at a Villa in Tuscany!
The front patio also has a large table for dining and relaxing and a BBQ for those who just want to hang out. Finally you can enjoy afternoon cocktails watching magnificent sunsets over the Infinity Bocce Court or sit in the gazebo under a sweeping willow next to one of the rose gardens.
This is the place to choose if you are a discriminating traveler. If you have traveled well and appreciate the comforts of finer hotels, you will feel right at home.
The property affords you the resort experience: enjoy playing Bocce on a regulation-sized Bocce Ball court, dine al fresco at a picnic table, relax with coffee or drinks in a garden gazebo or on either of your two private patios. Harvest fresh veggies (when available) from the organic garden outside your back door.
We frequently have Sunday morning Bocce games with friends that you would be welcome to join. Please be aware that all players are required to wear flat bottom shoes on the court. Unfortunately, the Court is NOT usable for several days after it rains as it needs to thoroughly dry out.
If you happen to be a duffer, we have a 3-hole putting green and can provide you with putters and balls.
For guests who have electric vehicles, we have the ability to charge an RV or a Tesla. Please let me know in advance if you need these conveniences.
Guests are welcome to explore the property, but the Main House and its back patio are excluded.
Interaction with guests
We have had a wonderful time socializing with our guests and when possible, many have joined us for drinks and hors d'oeuvres prior to going out for dinner. This is totally at the discretion of the guests, as we always want to respect their privacy and leave them to enjoy their vacation without disturbance from us. However we are always available for any questions or assistance a guest may need.
Other things to note
A Welcome Basket of delicious goodies and a bottle of local wine will be waiting for your arrival. Your Gourmet kitchen is fully equipped and ready to go - unlimited coffee, tea and cocoa are always complimentary as well as the seasonings in the pantry when guests choose to use the BBQ and dine at home. Prepare yourself to have the most glorious experience of the absence of noise, as you learn the meaning of "peace and quiet in the country."
As a special note, our Ambassador of Love, Rocky, is a Golden Retriever who is positive that all guests have come here especially to see him! If you DO love dogs, he will be thrilled to shower you with his attention. If you DO NOT love dogs, please be assured we will absolutely keep him out of your way!
We have included all fees for the required 12.5% SB County Occupancy taxes for guests who use Air BnB, so there are NO additional charges to you.
Pricing for one week bookings includes a free night; pricing for one month can be arranged.
We will be happy to assist you with information about local wineries, places to eat and popular attractions.
Reservations for weekends require a 2 night minimum stay. However, weekdays are flexible.
We are flexible about arranging arrival and departure times for our guests if pre-arranged.
This is a quiet, private community. We live among ranches and vineyard properties and out of respect for neighbors, request no loud noises after 10:00 pm. (sound carries in the country!)
Cancel up to 5 days before your trip and get a full refund. Cancel within 5 days of your trip and the first night is non-refundable, but 50% of the cost for the remaining nights will be refunded.

I am a psychotherapist, my husband is an attorney and we have lived in the Santa Ynez Valley for over 20 years. Transplanted from Los Angeles, we have traveled the world over - yet we never cease to be amazed at the joy we experience in the peace and beauty of returning to this incredible valley. We love our property - it is like living in a park surrounded by vineyards! - and have a fabulous two bedroom guest house that we would love to share. There is a regulation sized Bocce court and guests would be welcome to join our Sunday games which are times of laughter and mimosas with good friends.
Rocky is our 2 year old Golden Retriever that we recently rescued who LOVES to be with people. How or why anyone was able to give up this incredible boy is beyond us, but we know how lucky we are to have him!
Our desire is that our guests enjoy the luxury and serenity of living on 20 acres surrounded by gently rolling hills and vineyards. They will have total privacy, yet as we live here full time, we would be available for any assistance they might need.
