Our first time back in about 5 years. Took the wife for her birthday. Arrived on Sept 20 for two nights. The property was even nicer than I remember (we go to Stonehouse at least 2 or 3 times a year). Last visit we were in "Orange." This time Daisy. The shared bungalow was as expected. Only complaint was one... More

Beautiful and private...a step back into the past with all the quality amenities of the present. Gardens are spectacular with lots of walking areas to explore. Both restaurants were wonderful with personal service.

SYR has a unique blend of California luxury, western history and european sensibility complete with sublime gardens and relaxed comfort amongst quality furnishings and surroundings. It is romantic, peaceful and I highly recommend it!

We recently spent several nights at the San Ysidro Ranch to celebrage our wedding amniversary and didn't find it met our expectations. The grounds are lovely and the general ambiance is peaceful. While our room was cozy and roomy, the bathroom was tiny. The floorboards and bed were very creaky and the proximity to the next room was anything but... More

A well run property in an idyllic setting, this is just the place if you want to escape from the hubbub of some of the busier tourist destinations of the west coast. The property comprises a number of eell appointed cottages spread out over an amazing landscape with mountain backdrop. There is also a fantastic restaurant (The Stonehouse) with an... More

Even when compared to the other very high quality hotels I have enjoyed, SYR is at the very top of my list. When I travel, I look to stay somewhere I feel as good or better than at the home I love. SYR is that place. Having stayed there before, I had very high expectations and was not disappointed. It... More

My wife and I loved this hotel! This stunning property is located just a mile or so off the main highway but you feel so much further from life. It's serene and beautiful with blue water views of the Pacific Ocean. The cottages are quaint and well appointed with all the amenities required for a pleasant stay. Very romantic but... More

We have been coming back to the SYR for nearly a decade. For us, it is the American equivalent of the Aman hotels in Asia; on every occasion reliably delivering a beautifully styled room, hotel and experience without being formal and stuffy. The hill-side French provincial style cottages and gardens are absolutely perfect to relax for a few days where... More

Well I call myself a hotel snob - this hotel must be the nicest place I've ever stayed at!! I was slightly apprehensive travelling with three teen boys, but they LOVED it. We took a two bedroom cottage for three nights and frankly I could have moved right in there!! The whole place is serene, quiet, peaceful and really quaint.... More
