Rancho de la Vista
Rancho de la Vista
Enjoy the expansive beauty of the Santa Ynez Valley and the surrounding mountains from this beautiful 7 acre, gated ranch property situated atop one of the highest points in the Valley. With fully panoramic views and a plethora of cozy outdoor seating arrangements, it’s easy to take in the glory and brilliance of Rancho de la Vista.
Rancho de la Vista includes fantastic landscaping that compliments the natural flora of the area with lovely Manzanitas and Palo Verde. Rose bushes surround the patio featuring a large fire pit that makes for a great gathering place in the afternoons and evenings. A very mature oak tree provides ample shade for the dining deck, which includes an outdoor grill, wood-fired pizza oven and large, rustic wooden dining table.
There’s certainly no shortage of outdoor entertainment for you and your guests here. Enjoy a friendly match on the private tennis court, get a competitive game of horse shoes or corn hole, or enjoy the many hiking opportunities in and around the valley!
Indoors, you'll find plenty of enjoyment as well. The game room features a large flatscreen tv, foosball table and a pool table. Six heritage breed chickens live nearby and if you’re lucky, the caretaker might even come by and drop off a handful of beautiful blue eggs. Combine the eggs with some fresh herbs from the raised garden beds on property and and you have yourself a perfect ranch breakfast!
Inside, this thoughtfully curated Mediterranean style home reflects comfort and inspires whimsy around every corner. Textiles have been gathered from around the world and uplifting messages are tastefully displayed in art and décor.
The bedrooms are large and comfortable with premium linens. The kitchen is well appointed as well and has everything you need to cook up a great family dinner. With close to 3,600 square feet, you'll find more than enough space to spread out and plenty of gathering areas to enjoy. You'll find that this home has been very tastefully appointed and updated, while remaining true to the local aesthetic.

A Delightful Home in the Santa Ynez Valley
We couldn't have been happier with out stay at Rancho de la Vista this July. Somehow, the photos don't fully convey the spaciousness,, comfort and quality of the home. No photo can capture the vista of the Santa Ynez Valley from the back porch without experiencing it under the large oak that provides wonderful shade. During our visit there always seemed to be a cool breeze in that wonderful spot. The home's caretaker, Genaro, was available most days to help us locate a handful of things, and he was very personable. Our hostess, Kathy,, was quick to respond to text and email. When we couldn't locate a complete cocktail shaker or a citrus juicer, she had both to us the following day. We greatly enjoyed the fresh eggs and vegetables from the property. Getting out on the tennis court was fun--none of us had played in decades--but it is worth noting that the court's condition would not satisfy serious players right now (I believe resurfacing may be planned). We most definitely hope to return. Thank you, Kathy.”
Fabulous Estate in Santa Ynez!
This home is absolutely stunning!! Fabulous place to social distance yourself with 360 degree views of Santa Ynez wine country! Our kids were thrilled with the alpacas, rooster and all the space to explore. We feel lucky to have stayed in such a special place. Thanks again❤️”
This home is beautiful and sits on top of a hill with stunning views of the rolling landscape. The ranch style home has plenty of room and the backyard is perfect for playing bocce ball, tennis or leisure walks. We cooked pizza in the outdoor wood fired pizza oven while enjoying the sunset. Relaxing by the fireplace at night and enjoying the hot tub were highlights! The alpacas were a bonus and fun attraction. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and were sad to leave. It was the perfect place to rest, reflect and restore. With much gratitude, we say thank you for allowing us to experience your beautiful home.”
Serenity at it's finest!
There are not enough great things to say about this property! Kathy was an incredible host and left no detail to the imagination. Waking up in this beautiful home and stepping on the patio to the alpacas enjoying their breakfast provides a serenity like no other. They were such a fun part of our stay! The furnishings in this home are top notch. The views from the property are indescribably beautiful. And the town itself was such a nice break from regular life -- it feels like you've stepped into Europe when you walk through the streets of Solvang (and the food is just phenomenal). There is no shortage of entertainment or relaxation! If you're provided the opportunity to stay at Rancho De La Vista, don't let it slip away! ”
We loved our stay! The owner was wonderful to work with, not one detail was overlooked. Janet”
