We stayed in Santa Barbara overnight, but didn't know about S. Ysidro ranch. We discovered it unexpectedly. Only after our driver told us about it.
This is a place to see! The beautiful gardens, with little bungalows hidden in the blooming trees is somewhat an unusual landscape for this area, adding even more enjoyment to the experience. Everything is perfectly polished, creating the best first impression possible!
The reception staff was very friendly and highly efficient, encouraging us to explore the property, by giving us a map and pointing out interesting places. The interiors of the lobby and the stone house, where we went for drinks were very homely and thought of.
If we ever happen to arrive to Santa Barbara again, there's a strong possibility that we'll eventually take up S.Ysidro as accommodation.
