This was our 2nd time staying in one of Benny and Regina's cottages. Their property is peaceful, charming, and relaxing! The Inn Through the Back Door was like having own apartment-- kitchen with cooking utensils, refrigerator, and organic coffee, a good size bedroom with a great mattress, and a full bathroom. There were even fresh flowers in each room! Regina is a diligent communicator, and she always answered texts promptly. No disappointments-- only pleasant surprises!

We wanted a nice quiet getaway to celebrate my husbands birthday, so we booked the Inn Though the Back Door. This was our first time using Airbnb and it won't be our last! Regina & Benny were great hosts, very welcoming and hospitable. The cottage was clean, bed super comfy. We loved being out in the country away from everything. Great location, close enough to Solvang, short distance to Los Olivos and numerous wineries/tasting rooms. Regina graciously provided fresh organic orange juice, fresh ground organic coffee and biscotti. Highly recommend staying with Regina & Benny! Thank you guys for a wonderful stay!

We thoroughly enjoyed the "Inn through the backdoor" and the heart-warming welcome and hospitality of Regina and Benny. Very clean and well-decorated place, with good supplies, and all these little touches that made us feel well taken care of. The only problem was a rather weak internet in some spots, but Benny said he was working on it, and that did not detract from a wonderful stay. Highly recommended.

We really enjoyed our stay at Regina and Benny's (Inn through the back door). They really did go out of their way to make sure that we felt comfortable and welcome. It almost felt like visiting old time friends. Loved the biscotti and the organic coffee and orange juice! Hope to be back very soon.

Benny and Regina are wonderful. All accommodations were very clean and private. Additionally, they left organic coffee and fresh orange juice aside for us in the morning, had a beautiful outdoor seating area, and were easily accessible for any questions or concerns. We will defiantly be staying with them the next time around.

I've stayed at Regina and Benny's place twice. They are the most gracious and attentive hosts. I tell all my friends about this little gem. Beautiful location, comfy, clean, insanely affordable, and the very best hosts! What more can you ask for? Will definitely stay again.

Regina (Or Benny) User ProfileRegina (Or Benny) is a superhost.

We are private individuals who enjoy meeting new faces! What a contradiction! Regina is a psychotherapist and physical therapist, and Benny a retired Chiropractic physician, so we were with people all day long. But we LOVE welcoming new guests and sharing our space, which is "privately" away, with private entrance and free, on premise parking, though close to us. But don't come in case we should cross paths and you don't like friendly, open people. Heck, we have been in the people-business for many decades and LOVE folks!

There is, however, entertainment all around in a few minutes' time. This is beautiful country living close to the city, so please don't come if you think harmless Daddy Longlegs, which are flying right now, for instance, are "wasps in your room". (Ever so very often in our own house, even with my German wash-everything-all-the time attitude, gasp, ....mice that have come in from outside.)

Also: We speak a little French and a little Spanish besides fluent German, Danish and of course English.

So many people who need a friendly, clean, safe place to stay. So here it is: A friendly, clean, safe place you want to afford. (No Hilton-expectations at YMCA prices, please! We work exhaustingly hard as it is to get these places ready for you - but OBVIOUSLY for Love, not for money!

(But NO, do NOT be proud you discovered that there is "no microwave", only toaster-ovens (and a double-burner in the "Inn...") We have not allowed a Microwave unit on the property for decades since research has proven beyond any doubt that it is harmful to your health and the integrity of your food! (7-11 has one.)

And NO, Airbnb, we do NOT want to appeal to the business community with its attaché-cases, even though we DO sneakily have a hair-blowers and shampoo in both units! We are one of the last, old rural S. Y. properties so centrally located and are actually happy the photos are so bad, so that your intuition has to find us, not some anxious PR! (We'll fix them soon, I promise!)

P.S.: We have spent over an hour trying to change Airbnb's default cancellation policy with instructions, which is supposedly flexible. NO, ours is what's called "Moderate", which means you give us more than one day's notice for a refund so someone else could still book it. Sorry, but it's just too much work for nothing, not even Love! So please, make sure you can/want to come! We would LOVE to have you.
