Property Reviews

Jeffrey K.

"We booked the Goodgame Ranch to accommodate 9 adults for our wives 50th birthday celebration. The ease of booking the Ranch was incredible. The house, guest house, and property are absolutely stunning. We were all amazed at how beautiful and well-kept everything is. The house is so inviting and exudes warmth as soon as you enter. It was the perfect place to return to after wine tasting and sight-seeing. The location put us in close proximity to everything we had planned out. Thank you SYVR for this wonderful weekend."


"I can’t even begin to tell you how wonderful our stay at the Goodgame Ranch was. It was truly a spectacular home. I would absolutely love to stay there again sometime. Everything worked perfectly; we did not have any issues at all. When you feel so at home in a place you tend to take care of it as you would your own home. I found myself vacuuming and cleaning as if I was home. Not that I wasn’t relaxing, but because I felt like it was home. Thank you again for your assistance in getting us a place with AC. We actually only used it a couple of times, but it was nice to have. Thank you again, and I look forward to using your organization again soon."


"We loved the Goodgame ranch. Thank you! It was so pretty!"


"Thank you again for your help with our accommodations this weekend. We absolutely loved Goodgame Ranch and enjoyed another perfect weekend in wine country. We will be in touch soon to plan our return and will definitely recommend your service to friends. Thanks again!"


"I wanted to thank you and tell you how much we enjoyed our stay at the Goodgame Ranch. Thank you again for a lovely stay!"

"We had a fantastic time at the Goodgame Ranch and hope to return some day. Thanks for all your help."

Guy C.

"Thank you so much for recommending Goodgame Ranch – what a beautiful property… so comfortable, you made it feel like home from the moment we arrived. We normally stay in the larger resort hotels – particularly Bacara in Santa Barbara; but your service has really changed that! We can’t wait for next time – there’s no place we’d rather stay. Thank you again so much for a great memory!"

Rhea and Henry

"We just wanted to thank you so very much for the last couple of days we spent @ Goodgame Ranch! What a great place! The home is so comfortable, the views spectacular! How wonderful to greet the New Year there. Have a blessed New Year!"

Yolanda H.

"We had a great time!"


"Goodgame is a delightful property with lovely outside living areas and beautifully appointed home. It is a perfect place to stay in the SYV if you want accessibility to restaurants and the villages, but still have a quiet country environment. Thank you for recommending Goodgame Ranch."


"Our stay at Goodgame Ranch was absolutely fantastic. The accommodations were perfect, the grounds were immaculate, and it provided the perfect getaway for our annual retreat with good friends. You were once again wonderful to deal with and made everything smooth and easy. You all have once again reminded us why we turn to you for these wonderful long weekends with friends. I will certainly add to your testimonial page and we all look forward to booking another long weekend with you in the near future. Thanks again."

"Thanks for the great girl’s weekend at Goodgame Ranch. We loved the house and beautiful setting. Thanks again for the ride into town on Thursday night. Thanks so much! Hopefully we’ll run the half marathon next May and be renting from you guys again."

Declan R.

"Just got back from a wonderful weekend at Goodgame Ranch. We arrived late on Friday night & had fun trying to find the ranch in the dark ….. ! But what a thrill to wake up to such a beautiful home in the morning. We had friends from Ireland visiting and thought it would be great to show them Santa Ynez & do some wine tasting. It was such a wonderful experience, having all the amenities of the ranch amid the beautiful surroundings. We’ll definitely be back!"


"Over Labor Day weekend, our group of 13 friends rented Goodgame Ranch and Fancy Hills Farm for a reunion. Both properties were wonderful — comfortable, well-appointed, clean and in beautiful surroundings. We slept with windows open to enjoy the cool, crisp air and loved hearing the roosters in the morning. Both properties easily accommodated all of us for meals — the kitchens were stocked with every pot, pan, dish, utensil and glassware anyone could need. We had one minor issue with an erroneous lock-box code, but it was resolved in less than a minute with a phone call. I can’t say enough about the professionalism of Santa Ynez Vacation Rentals. My only reluctance about recommending these properties is the fear that too many people will find out how great they are and it will be impossible to book them again. Thanks Leanne and Mark for making it a great weekend."


"Hi Mark and Leanne, We had an awesome time, what a lovely house!!! Thank you!"

The Jacobs Family

"I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Goodgame Ranch. We rented the house for an easy commute to our daughter’s wedding at the Lincourt Vineyard. The location couldn’t have been more perfect. We will forever talk about how much we enjoyed our stay. The younger children spent hours in the pool and exploring the big yard. We utilized every nook and cranny. Each room provided the comforts of home. It is such a wonderful quiet house for relaxing and spending quality time together. Thank you, thank you!"

Travis B.

"We rented this house for the bridesmaids in our wedding to stay and prepare for our wedding. It was the perfect fit for our country themed wedding as that is exactly what the property is. It’s truly a classic style farmhouse with modern amenities. We enjoyed it so much we actually refused to leave and stayed an extra night. Oh and did I mention, we only live a mile from the house…"


"We really enjoyed our stay at Goodgame Ranch. This charming house and beautiful yard are perfect for families looking to get away and have some downtime together. We didn’t even leave the property because we were having such a good time. The yard is incredible and fulfilled all of our needs. We spent all day outside and there was lots to see and explore. The house is comfortable and had all the amenities that we needed. You will enjoy your stay at Goodgame Ranch."


"We had a great time at this property celebrating my wife’s birthday with friends and family. The house and grounds are lovely and provide many comfortable, picturesque spaces for guests to gather, visit, and have fun."

Christian Z.

"Just wanted to drop a quick email and say how lovely it was staying at the Goodgame Ranch in August 2014. Although we were not inside much, it was a very comfortable home. The outside area at night is just spectacular. Listening to music while swimming under the stars is just magical. I wish I could have slept outside. Thanks again."
