Location

Solvang, California, United States

Ballard (Solvang), the center of the Santa Ynez Valley was the first town that settled here in the late 1800's!
Surrounded by vineyards, mountains, horse ranches, farms and schoolhouses, you feel as you have arrived in a time warp of sorts where simple pleasures, mossy oaks, grassy fields, and warm sunny days are found.
We feel so fortunate to live here and closely guard its quiet serenity and are grateful for all the beauty, amenities, world class wineries, restaurants, breweries, and shopping this Valley has to offer.
A Beautiful route to the charming towns of Los Olivos, Santa Ynez, Solvang or Buellton takes only 5 to 10 minutes by car or make a loop and enjoy the scenery on one of our bicycles, provided to you at no charge!
30-45 minutes by car through scenic Hwy 154 or 101 takes you to beautiful Santa Barbara to enjoy its awesome shopping, ocean views and beaches!

Hi, my name is Kris, am happily married to my wife Hilde, have one son and live in California now for 23 years. Hilde and I feel very fortunate to call Ballard (Solvang), Home since 2012. Our pooches Ozzy and Rocco complete our family here! They stay at our home but run around on the property, keep the coyotes out and all off us safe. They are very sweet and Rocco is eager to meet you, but please let me know if you are not up for it. Rocco is super social. Ozzy is a bit more shy and won't come to close to you without me being with him. 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! Cheers! Kris.
