We passed up staying at this magnificent hotel and chose the Four Seasons instead because they required full payment in advance and we never know when a trip will have to be cancelled..Saying that we made reservations for lunch one day and how spectacular it was. The grounds are like your in France. The gardens are amazing and the lemon... More

San Ysidro Ranch is an absolutely stunning, scenic property dotted with lovely cottages..all different and uniquely charming. We went for a week this past August and stayed in the magnificent Warner cottage. It was breathtaking and luxurious yet so cozy. Perfectly decorated with exquisite antiques everywhere. Incredible attention to detail was evident from the immaculate housekeeping to the terrific snacks... More

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights on a road trip up the coast. Without a doubt, this is the nicest hotel I have stayed in in 58 years. I could go on, but the combination of location, accommodations, and service were outstanding. I can't wait to return.

When they found out it was our honeymoon they upgraded our accommodations to a lovely cottage with a fireplace and a jacuzzi. We had complimentary champagne waiting for us in the room and a very comfy bed! Our dinner at the Stone house was superb and the service perfect with just the right attention and knowledge of the menu.

The grounds were gorgeous. The cottages were beautiful, and the outdoor private hot tub was used frequently due to the cool weather. We can't wait to go back. From arrival to departure this was everything and more than expected.

I just got back from a week at the San ysidro ranch in Montecito. I look forward to going there every year at this time with close friends. It is such a unique setting in California that it reminds me of the east coast and makes you feel like you are completely out of Los Angeles . Because all the... More

This is our second stay here and it won't be our last. For us, it's perfect. We stayed in the Citrus cabin on each visit, which we highly recommend. Since our last visit, the outdoor shower on the private back patio, which we didn't use, has been replaced with a wonderful hot tub, which we used and enjoyed. The bed... More

I recently returned to the San Ysidro Ranch around the holidays for a blissful weekend getaway. I could not be more elated with my experience. As usual the ambiance, the decorations, the service and attention to detail were impeccable.
