Beautiful home with gorgeous views. The house is cozy and welcoming. Everything we needed to make our stay even more comfortable Kris provided. Truly an amazing host. Located a short WALK to an excellent winery. Thank you Kris for opening up your home. We loved our stay

Kris was a wonderful host and he made us feel welcome. The house is very comfortable and beautiful, furnished with everything you would need for an enjoyable stay--even down to salt and pepper and coffee! The views are stunning and the location is perfect--within walking distance of three wineries. There are only three houses in the area, so it is very peaceful and quiet. Bikes are available, as well as a barbecue grill. I would definitely stay here again and would have no hesitation in recommending this home to anyone.

Great house at the entrance of a winery, in the hills of Los Olivos close to town. Bikes, darts, lovely layout, modern and very well appointe house. Would like to return for a month! Highly recommend Kris' place. Kris will guide you prior to your visit and leave a bottle of wine to enjoy. Top Notch!

The views are amazing! We got to enjoy the sunsets. Perfect place for a family. We stayed with a 11 month daughter. Kris provided us with a highchair and pack and play. The place is cozy, modern, clean and has high end appliances. We really enjoyed the pond. We captured some amazing pictures there. The big plus about this place is that is right next to Ridea Winery, walking distance! Overall, great place, great host and great location! thanks Kris!

Hi, my name is Kris, am happily married to my wife Hilde, have one son and live in California now for 20 years. Hilde and I feel very fortunate to call Ballard (Solvang), Home since 2012. Our cute little Dash hound (Buckey) and recently adopted Boxer (Ozzy) complete our family here! They stay at our home on the property, not at the rental home, are eager to meet you, but only if you are up for it! We enjoy life, Friends and Fine Cuisine accompanied with a glass of local wine or a delicious Beer!
We are looking forward to meet and welcome you!
