Property Description

Palomino Paradise

In the early 1970s, Willard and Dorothy Beanland ventured north to Solvang from Los Angeles. They settled and built their retirement ranch called Goldie Acres. The reason for the name was that they bred, raised and trained Tennessee Walker Palomino horses. Yes, only Palominos here! The Beanlands’ passion for their horses had them riding them in the Pasadena Rose Parade for 34 years in a row! In addition to the Rose Parade, they rode in countless other parades displaying the incredible “silver saddles” they designed specifically for their Palominos. They were a fixture in parade riding community. Willard passed at the age of 82, leaving Dorothy the task of caring for the horses until she could no longer ride. Dorothy passed away in the late 1990s and the one remaining Palomino on the ranch, Tequila, was given to a gal that rode with the Ladies Mounted Sheriffs, and they continue to ride in local parades today.

As the Beanlands aged, the ranch became tired and worn from the 30 years of their Palomino passion and ranch dream. The property was sold to only the second owner in 35 years – a real cowboy – who has attempted to keep the traditional feel of the ranch but has modernizing the home, its surrounding barns, arenas, pastures, and landscaping. The traditional California Board and Batten home has been remodeled, adding all modern amenities including pool, pool house, outdoor pizza oven, landscape and outdoor lighting and custom landscaping. Restored and updated with luxurious Western Theme Décor, natural stone and hard wood floors throughout. With all of these changes, the name change to “Circle L Ranch” was appropriate. Come and join us for a stay and enjoy the feel of the Old West. You may even spot a Palomino horse in one of the pastures.

Property Reviews

Western Oasis

I've stayed at Circle L twice, both times with large groups of family in town for weddings, and it's been fantastic both times. The over the top Western style is a bit kitsch, but it works. The master bedroom is over the top, with en suite luxury bath, a small den, and a bed that can only be described as cloud like. Don't mind the canoe (you'll see). The second master is also fantastic, not to sell short the other bedrooms. Water pressure is great, towels are fantastic, and the comp soaps are even fancy. Overall, a great place to spend the night.

Amenities include a fabulous pool, hot tub, massive garden, ample parking, quiet neighbors (and be respectful in return), a pizza oven, WiFi, laundry, and a completely stocked kitchen. If you're planning to cook at this house, you don't need anything but ingredients. Amazing, pro kitchen that I was able to effortlessly cook 2 dinners for a crowd out of.


Highly recommended!

Our stay last weekend was amazing! I would absolutely recommend this property to friends and family. The decor was perfect and we loved the western vibe. Thank you again for helping set this up. I can't wait to come back next year and stay again.

Truly fit the bill for us!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, as the property is perfect for our needs. Wine tasting in the area is always nice, but our group loves to kick around the pool, BBQ & cook, so it truly fit the bill for us. Only negative we came away with was our decision to just do two nights instead of three. Hope to come back again, so thank you.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Great house for a couples get-away weekend. Spacious and comfortable inside & out. Excellent kitchen for those who like to cook, including the pizza oven & gas grill out back. Private and quiet. Made the decision to venture out for wine tasting... a hard sell when you're so settled at the ranch. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend the Circle L Ranch.

Spacious and very clean

Just wanted to let you know that we really enjoyed our stay at Circle L Ranch. It was spacious and very clean. Everyone loved the pool and the outdoor eating area. I was thrilled that there were so many dishes and pots and pans as we cooked just about all our meals at the house. And the delicious coffee was an added bonus.
Thank you and I would recommend your place.


Perfect in every way!

From the gorgeous home and spectacular views - our stay was perfect in every way! You've created a special place for "an experience" for all who enter your doors! We enjoyed every inch of the Circle L Ranch and hope you'll let us come back again!

P.S. We had pizza ingredients shipped in from Biga Lova in Detroit and highly recommend others to do as we did, and celebrate good times with the pizza oven!

Thank you!

Once again, Leanne and the rest of the staff at Santa Ynez Vacation rentals coordinated an absolutely perfect New Years holiday for my family and friends at the Circle L Ranch.

First of all, the property is impeccably kept up and the owners have outdone themselves decorating the home in a Western theme. There are two spacious master suites and two good size additional bedrooms. Each of the 4 families in attendance had plenty of room to place their children (ages ranged from 1.5 to 7) on air mattresses or sleeping bags and still be very comfortable in their sleeping quarters. The kitchen, large dining area, and living room (with a great wood-burning fireplace) are in one large, open room allowing our guests to spread out and enjoy each other’s company. The kitchen had every utensil we could possibly think, the home had Wifi throughout the property (including the backyard), satellite television, a speaker system that played Sirius/XM radio throughout the property, and an intuitive smart home system that made playing movies for the kids or music for the adults very easy. The backyard is beautifully landscaped and has a good sized pool (not heated unfortunately), hot tub, and large grassy area that was perfect to the play around with the kids. The highlight for our group was huddling around a firepit in the backyard called the Cowboy Cauldron in the evenings. We liked the setup so much, I ordered one online after our first evening at Circle L.

We had another incredible experience renting a home through Santa Ynez Vacation rentals and can’t thank Leanne, Mark, and the owners enough.

We recently stayed at this property for 3 days at the end of July. It is an amazing property and worth every penny. The grounds are beautiful and the pool/exterior eating area was fantastic. The interior is immaculately maintained and was spotless upon our arrival. We have rented many vacation homes in the past and this is truly one of the best we’ve stayed in. We will we back for sure.



I had the luxury of staying at Circle L Ranch recently with a few girlfriends and the trip was nothing but amazing. The house was even better than we could have imagined. It was pristine, unique and gorgeous throughout, yet cozy at the same time. The inside was decorated to fit the Santa Ynez cowboy lifestyle to a “T” and the outside was built for entertaining. We were able to relax and enjoy the gorgeous pool in the daytime and then wind down with some homemade pizzas in the outdoor pizza oven at night. We had planned to go out and see the town after dinner, but we were enjoying the house so much we just stayed in. There were plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms to fit us all, and then some. The spacious layout was perfect for a group and let us cook together in style.
I woke up feeling refreshed as the beds were extremely comfortable. Having coffee and tea set out for us by SY Vacation Rentals was an extra bonus. I will definitely be back. Hopefully sooner, than later.



A group of friends enjoyed a weekend here. We lounged by the spacious pool, cooked in the well appointed kitchen, ate dinner under the stars, and slept like babies in the comfortable bedrooms. It is an amazing property and has everything you would ever need. I would highly recommend this property. It is perfect for a weekend getaway with family or friends.

This is a fantastic house and property. My wife and I often rent houses for short getaways and this is one of the best we’ve experienced. Fun, comfortable, great location… We will be back for sure.



We stayed at the Circle L Ranch over Labor Day Weekend. It fit our 2 Couples, 2 Toddlers and 2 Grandmas perfectly. We were super impressed with how well stocked the house was—-having everything you can imagine needing for your stay. This especially stood out to us because we have stayed in other ‘luxury’ houses that were pretty bare bones as far as what was available to use in the house (toiletries, towels, kitchen stuff, extra fans/heaters, candles, etc.—even coloring books & crayons for the kids). The inside of the house was decorated beautifully, really making you feel like your on a luxurious ranch and the outdoor living space (pool/hot tub area, pizza oven, etc.) was a beautiful oasis. We would be thrilled to stay at the Circle L again. Mark and Leanne were great to work with and made our experience memorable.



This house is an ultimate jam! Super spacious, comfortable, high end all around. Perfect for family getaways especially if you have kids which can run around and play in the pool. The house is not cheap but in our opinion was great value. Mark and Leanne were responsive to our needs and very easy to deal with. We came across this house searching for a rental in Santa Barbara which we could not find – it worked out great because the weather in Solvang was so much better than SB. The only negative feedback was that the water in the hot tub wasn’t hot. Looking forward to going back.



Our group of 8 (5 adults and 3 children) stayed here in July for 4 nights and we absolutely loved every minute of it. The house is well laid out and so beautifully decorated that you feel like you’re staying at a luxury hotel. It’s close to Solvang, but yet far enough away from other properties to make you feel like your miles away. The pool was beautiful, kids loved swimming all day and adults and kids alike loved the hot tub. We hope to be back.

Thank you so much for this amazing property. We are having the best time!

The property is beautiful, we don’t ever want to leave & we are already looking forward to coming back!

We have left the ranch. What a lovely property — beautifully appointed and comfortable. We were so happy to have found and really enjoyed it.
