I've been at San Ysidro Ranch quite a few times; usually over Christmas. For an extra cost, they provide the most beautiful Christmas tree for us. This time I was there by myself, to visit frineds in the area. The summer is even more glorious because of an increase in flowers. Although there are plenty in winter, as well. Each... More

Wow! This must be one of the most amazing hotels in the world. From the moment we checked in I knew my husband wanted to wow me for our anniversary week vacation in Santa Barbara.

It has to be one of the most beautiful properties in the United States. You instantly feel transported to another part of the world where Tuscan rolling hills and natural stone architecture engulf you in a warm and tranquil oasis as you look out over the pacific ocean in the distance. The restaurant is terrific! They had a special event... More

I've stayed at a great many 5 star wonderful hotels, but San Ysidro Ranch will always stay at the very top. The fresh cool breeze, the linens, the Pacific view from the front porch, the fresh fruit to pick from their backyard garden, the days of privacy with never seeing anyone, the flowers, the long hikes, the JFK story (he...

I stayed here with my husband and dog in March. From the moment we checked in until check out, it was a 5 star experience. We had a dog friendly room, one of the Lavender cottages. The cottages are freestanding and supremely private with a gate surrounding the cottage. The front deck and a lovely table and umbrella, and the... More

We have been to the ranch several times, as it holds a very special place in our hearts. Private, quiet, beautiful surroundings and such phenomenal staff. The food is exquisite at both restaurants - the chef knows how to handle and prepare a steak! WOW! We will certainly return for the rest of our lives as this is truly a... More

We stayed here for a wedding, and from the moment we drove onto the property I knew this place was amazing. We each had our own cottage with sweet touches. There isn't one thing that the management hasn't thought of for your pleasure and needs. The bed was the most comfortable I had slept in! We also enjoyed sitting outside... More

Private spaces. Gorgeous property. Great staff. Fabulous food. Just about perfect. Highly recommend. Expensive but worth it. Very romantic. This is The place to go in Santa Barbara. Such places are often over-rated, but that is not the case here. It is 5-star.
