Successful Girls' Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The first thing that I should mention is that the property manager, Michelle, went above and beyond for me in securing this rental. I had a big weekend planned with 14 girlfriends to go wine tasting in Santa Ynez. Plane tickets were booked; schedules were cleared. Then, to make a long story short, about a month before the trip I wasn't able to stay there anymore. Michelle, who had been my point person for the original trip, said that I could stay at this property instead, which was way better than the other, both in terms of location and amenities.

The property is located on a working ranch and it's a bit of a drive to get to it, but it didn't confuse any of the rideshare drivers that picked us up. We stayed in the casitas and the smaller guest house, and that was more than enough room for 14 of us. Our original plan was to be out most of the time wine tasting, but we ended up staying in a little more than planned just because the pool was so amazing! The kitchen was not ideal to cook in, but you're so close to good places to eat you might as well just grab some wine and cheese from the Funk Zone on the way back from lunch or dinner out to tide you over. All in all, an excellent rental. Thanks Michelle!

Everything you need in one place for a perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion here and it was a fantastic experience! I will try and be systematic is what we loved and what could be improved (spoiler alert: not a lot needs to be improved). What we loved: we were greeted by the groundskeeper who lives just down the road and is available anytime you need with any questions. He was very kind and patient anytime we had a question. He showed us around the property and all of its amenities, how the pool and hot tub worked, where all the lights were located, how the outdoor speakers worked, and answered all questions. We loved the sprawling estate and that there was plenty of room for our 14 guests. All of the beds were very comfortable with nice bedding. The pool and hot tub are definitely the focal point of the estate and we spent most of our time there. All the rooms were clean, and the bathrooms were well kept and stocked with shower toiletries.

Some small things that could be improved upon is that the kitchen could use a utensil update- the knives were dull and there just wasn't enough serving utensils, it also didn't have a whisk. Another small thing is that we wished the pool and hot tub lights worked for night swimming. It also looked like the pool had a waterfall feature but it didn't work. Other than those small things, everything was wonderful! We loved staying here and will likely stay here in the future!

Captures the Magic of the Central Coast

  • 5 of 5

Had a big group of cyclists to entertain for three days, and the ranch was perfect. Not only situated at the foot of the region's most spectacular rides, it was also perfectly laid out to comfortably accommodate everyone in our group, and had great post-ride amenities (fireplace, pool, hot tub). The location is undeniably incredible, but if you're riding a bike, you'll be earning the amazing view with every pedal stroke back up that super-steep driveway. Many thanks to Michelle and Eddie for their flexibility and fast, reliable communications.

Beautiful home for larger group

  • 5 of 5

We had our bridal party stay at this magnificent estate for our wedding. The owner Eddie was nice enough to let us take some photos on the property, and was flexible with all of our bustle on the wedding day. Michelle was a great help as well with communication. We took full advantage of all 6 rooms and found everything to be excellent.

Perfect weekend escape

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Santa Barbara estate was nothing short of amazing. We went for a girls getaway weekend and this property was the perfect fit for the occasion. There was a minor miscommunication regarding our arrival time the morning of, but the owner, Eddie, and the property manager, Michelle, were very accommodating and willing to make it work which was greatly appreciated. Eddie was on the property at all times since it is a fully working estate, but he made sure to give us our space and he was very responsive and right there whenever we needed anything (more trash bags, getting the speakers to work, etc.). We had a large group of 11 people so we rented the Chestnut Villa and one pool casita. Michelle was very helpful in figuring out which parts of the estate we needed to rent in order for us to sleep comfortably and not be stepping over one another. The views are spectacular and it was only a 15 minute uber ride to downtown Santa Barbara which made the location very ideal. We highly recommend this property and would definitely go back in a heart beat!

Ideal family gathering place

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay which provided the ideal familial gathering place. The communal setting, well kept grounds, beautiful views, pool and spa were excellent amenities for our water friendly family. The property manager, Michelle, and owner, Eddie, provided excellent customer service. We strongly recommend this property and appreciate the quick response to any questions we had.
