Top-shelf luxury is all around you with a comfortable and casual atmosphere to eat, drink, play & stay. I would suggest you arrive early if you can. There are so many beautiful places to relax and enjoy on the property and in your room. The staff will take great care of you and make sure you have memorable stay.

Santa Barbara is a place I’ve been wanting to visit for years, it seemed every time I spoke to someone who had visited they only had wonderful things to say about America’s Riviera. I’ve never heard anyone say that Santa Barbara didn’t suit them well. San Ysidro Ranch is a gorgeous resort that is truly meant to give you a... More

Perhaps it was the Monday/Tuesday night stay, but my wife and I were sadly unimpressed with our experience at SYR. Even though the grounds are peaceful and picturesque our first room Fig was small, noisy (couples on both sides and thin walls) and emitted a sewage smell that led to us having to switch. The second spot we liked (lavender)... More

This property, in the mountains, and looking at the ocean is magnificent. The flower gardens are beautiful and the vegetable gardens are beautiful and show up in your meals. Our room was charming, bedroom, living room, and private garden. We ate breakfast in this flower filled garden each morning, and read in the very comfortable lounge chairs each afternoon. Hiking...

My husband and I came here on our 10 year anniversary. We thought this was heaven! The grounds are immaculate, flowers everywhere. Huge beautiful trees everywhere, and the restaurant's organic vegetable garden is also in the garden area. Sitting out in the gardens is such a tranquil experience, that you just want to meander around the grounds all day. The... More

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
