Great little cottage
We stayed for 2 nights with another couple. The location of the house is fantastic, about equal distance to Solvang and Los Olivos (<10 mins). The layout of the house is a bit awkward as there is a door that connects the 2 bedrooms and I don’t think there is a lock. The bathroom is sort of a jack-and-jill but the second door connects to the pantry. It’s very strange and waking up early or in the middle of the night, we were walking into each other’s bedrooms instead of the bathroom or out the room because there are so many doors that all connect to each other. Also one of the 2 doors to the bathroom didn’t have a lock which made sharing the bathroom a bit uneasy. The pizza oven was a lot of fun. Unfortunately we didn’t realize that all of the supplied fire wood was stacked BEHIND the oven and we didn’t see it until the morning when we were checking out. Our pizzas didn’t really come out because we couldn’t get it hot enough. They leave detailed instructions on how to use it, but not about the location of the wood. The house is very well stocked and we weren’t missing anything – olive oil, salt, pepper, flour, corn meal, coffee, tea, etc. They have a pitcher water filter in the fridge too. The day you check in, make sure you swing by the amazing Finley Farms Farmstand (1702 Refugio Rd) to stock up on organic fruit and veggies!! They are AMAZING!!
Have stayed at this place with my family many times over the years and always love it! Mark is exceptional at taking care of all the details and various things we've needed.
Thank you Santa Ynez Vacation Rentals! My new husband and I spent our wedding weekend in the charming hacienda and couldn't have had a more perfect stay. We enjoyed having our coffee and taking in the beautiful front porch view of Lincourt's vineyards and the gorgeous cacti surrounding the property. We felt right at home in this beautiful place and are excited to come back for another getaway! We loved all of the windows in the house that allowed for a cool breeze at night. would recommend this place to friends and family looking for a cozy at home feel in wine country.
Our little girls call it “our cabin”. We’ve rented it numerous times and have grown to love it tremendously. Off the main road, next to Lincourt, great neighbors, close to Los Olivos, what’s not to like? Mark does an excellent job making sure everything is taken care of. :)
Thank you so much for sharing your home – it was the perfect place for a weekend of wine tasting, pizza making, and bicycle riding! This house had a wonderful location with so many wineries just a few minutes from this house and the town just down the road. The house was in great shape, and the pizza oven was easy to use as it came with very clear instructions! (We love the pizza oven!!!)
Fantastic location right on Lincourt! We woke up both morning to views of the grapes. We liked it so much we joined the wine club! The pizza oven is fun, too.
We had a great time at the hacienda and it was the final step in deciding to retire in the valley when the time comes. The house and setting were beautiful, the amenties well thought out and the pizza oven fun! We’ll be back.

Thank you for another wonderful stay at your properties! We absolutely loved the house and loo forward to staying again in the future! Thank you again!
We very much enjoyed the cottage and would definitely rent it again! Our only complaint was that the trundle bed mattress is a little too soft (the daybed mattress is better as it is very firm and new) Otherwise, we enjoyed the kitchen, pizza oven and relaxing. We hope to visit again soon.
Hope you have a nice weekend.
Had a great time. Loved the house.
We had such a wonderful time this weekend, I just wanted to let you know that the property was perfect!! Thanks so much!! We can’t wait to come back next year :)
We loved our stay at the house. It was beautiful. We would definitely rent the house again.
I just wanted to say thanks for the Hacienda. We had a wonderful vacation. The house was in a top shape, perfectly located right in the wine region and the kitchen was a dream for a foodie family like mine. Family dinners and lunches every day with wine from the local producers. Perfect.
I just wanted to let you know that we had a great time at the house and in Santa Ynez. We hope to do it again!
I wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful stay at the Hacienda. The place was great, very peaceful and quiet. And, you also might like to know that two people that had been casually dating fell deeply in love there over the weekend, and best of all, one of them was me:)
Thanks for all your help
Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed staying at Hacienda Alamo Pintado this past weekend. My husband and I had a great time.
The rental home location adjacent to the Lincourt Vineyard made us feel part of the whole wine/vineyard experience. The home was very clean and comfortable.
We had a blast at the Hacienda! What a charming place.
Thank you again!
I’m writing to thank you, very belatedly, for sharing your beautiful home in Solvang with me and my husband back in August. It was the best vacation we’ve had in many years, and we simply adored the house and its surroundings. We hope someday to have such a lovely vacation home, but until we do, I hope we will be able to enjoy yours again. Also, thank you so much for sending back the battery charger that we left hehind.
