Best Place for Families and Friends. 5 Days Between Guests

Family-friendly vacation home in Santa Ynez
We allow 5 days between guests to ensure Covid-19 safety. Fast Internet service! Work from home environment. We are 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. 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

Enjoyed the cottage and feeding all the chicken!
We spent the long Thanksgiving weekend at Peter and Bev’s property as we explored Solvang and the surrounding hiking trails and beaches (as recommended by Peter). The check-in process was so easy and Bev greeted us upon arrival. The cottage was so cute and perfect for my brothers and I. The fridge was stocked with fresh eggs, juice, water and fruits. We also enjoyed using the grill in the backyard. We spent our mornings in the meditation garden and we were able to feed all the chicken. The place was immaculate and the restroom was fully stocked with great products. The beds were so comfortable with clean linen and we definitely recommend this property if exploring Solvang.

5/5 Excellent

Perfect spot
Great little getaway spot. The property is beautiful. Our daughter loved feeding the chickens. Very close to downtown Solvang. Quiet, very peaceful. We had a great time!

5/5 Excellent

Great house and great location!
We loved staying here, it was the highlight of our road trip. The gardens/property was beautiful, our kids especially loved the chickens, the owner introduced us to them and gave us food, they were very friendly and had tons of personality. The house was very nice and spacious, the food and drinks left for us in the refrigerator were a really nice touch that you don't find many places and enough for breakfast for us for several days. We were also close driving distance to Los Olivos and Solvang and visited several wineries in the area as well, all within short drives. We would definitely stay here again!

5/5 Excellent
