We stayed here for two nights last week as part of a two week trip to the USA. It is pricey but worth it as it is a unique place with the highest quality staff, accommodation and scenery.
We stayed in the Brazil tree house which was fantastic in every way. The small touches made it - such as the binoculars to watch wildlife, complimentary but #good# minibar/snacks and Bose sound system (though we did have to unplug this at night as it made a hum!) We didn't have a view of the sea but sleeping in a treehouse with a view of the Cali woods suited us just fine - it was MEGA!
The weather was foggy while we were there but the sun burned though in the day and we had some great walks around the ranch, dips in the infinity pool and good sized swimming pool and even a chi-trail run! We didn't have any treatments or go to the free yoga so if you're into those so much the better.
The only possible let down was the food at dinner (breakfast was great) - we would have expected Michelin-star quality in a place like this but it was just below that in our opinion, though still nice. A larger selection of wines by the glass would be good too.
The staff deserve a special mention-in particular all the maids, drivers and helpers as well as the great lady running the dining area. This contributed to the overall feel of calm and welcome that pervaded the ranch.
Yes it's expensive but it is still good value for money-if you want a unique experience go here for at least two nights if you can!
