*** When booking a Friday or Saturday night stay, there is a three-night minimum. No minimum for weekdays. ***
The winter season is the best time to find a last minute weekday check in.
King bed in the master bedroom, a queen bed or two twin beds in the second bedroom, and a queen sleeper sofa in living area. Full kitchen. Maximum occupancy 6.

Velkommen to Solvang, the Danish Capital of America. Located in the breathtaking Santa Ynez Valley of California, Solvang is a quaint village of flower-lined streets featuring old world architecture highlighted by thatch, copper and tile roofs. This resort puts you in the heart of the lovely village.
Find a treasured keepsake at one of Solvang’s many unique shops, which offer an assortment of imported European wares, including porcelain, collectibles and handicrafts. Savor fine authentic Danish cuisine—perhaps some frikadeller (meat balls), medisterpolse (sausages) or rodkaal (red cabbage)—and make sure to save room for some baked goods.
The Santa Ynez Valley also is known for producing some of the finest wines in the world—boasting more than 18,000 acres of grapevines and more than 60 wineries. The area is especially known for producing outstanding Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, but produces a number of other varietals, including Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. And Solvang is home to a number of area tasting rooms, many of which welcome visitors year round.

Other things to note
WEDDING GUESTS: Check-in begins at 4pm. While it is possible, it is not likely that you would be able to check in early because the staff must clean all of the units from those guests checking out at noon...even if you need to get ready for an afternoon wedding rehearsal. If you need the room to prepare for a wedding rehearsal, you are encouraged to add the previous night to your reservation request. I will do my best to work with your schedule :)
Parking is limited at Solvang and the resort is not able to accommodate the storage of boats, RVs and trailers. Please contact the front desk for options.
Pool & Hot Tub Information
Pool and hot tub: 8 a.m. - 10 p.m., with first and last hour reserved for adult swim. Pool towels are located under the bathroom sink in your unit. Children in diapers must wear waterproof diapers designed for swimming. There are no lifeguards on duty. Please refer to the posted pool signage for more specific information.
I rent out my WorldMark timeshare -- 120+ resort locations all over the US, Mexico, Canada, Australia, Fiji, New Zealand, and England.
While last-minute short-stay accommodations are sometimes possible, please be smart about your expectations. Keep this helpful hints in mind:
1. Holidays and summer weekends book up months in advance.
2. If it's less than a month before any kind of holiday, concert, or event, it's likely already booked up. Accommodations in Indio and Palms Springs sell out within the HOUR of Coachella tickets going on sale, but it's the same two weekends every year, so plan ahead and you'll get what you want.
3. You can book as far as 13 months out.
4. If you book more than 10 months out, there is a 7-night minimum.
5. If you want to book a Friday or a Saturday, there is a three-night minimum -- unless you are booking within 48 hours of check-in (4pm). Very occasionally I am able to accommodate shorter weekend stays. It doesn't hurt to ask, but please don't be disappointed if I must say no.
I have units that can accommodate as many as eight people. Have more than eight? You can rent more that one unit! The Maximum Occupancy listed on the listing is as true as gravity and cannot be adjusted for any reason because the Fire Marshal said so. Respect the Fire Marshal's wisdom.
Almost all units have a complete kitchen. In addition to full-size appliances, you'll find plates, glasses, silverware, and other kitchen items. All linens, including towels, are included. You have access to all resort amenities -- that means the pool, the hot tub, the gym, free parking, etc.
Sadly, the resorts do not allow pets.
Wifi is $4.95/day or $15.95/stay. This is 100% a resort fee that I have 0% control over.
This is a timeshare. Someone at the resort might (but probably won't) try to talk you into buying a timeshare. They'll even give you a present if you say yes! Saying yes means dealing with them for the next two hours, and that's *not* why you went on vacation. BE SMART - SAY NO - GO ENJOY YOUR VACATION! :)
We've had too many bad experiences with guests from Orange County, California. If you are a current or former resident of Orange County and would like to rent from us, kindly be kind in your messages; we'll get the hint that you're a decent person and will welcome you with open arms.
