A luxurious and private retreat with an open floor plan for families & friends
About Naples Ranch
We've been married for 25 years, and have three grown children. We hope to eventually retire to Naples and have more time to travel and enjoy the outdoors together.
Naples Ranch purchased this House in 2016
Why Naples Ranch chose Goleta
We graduated from University of California at Santa Barbara in the 1980's, and have wanted to retire here ever since. We found the remote ranch property by chance, and fell in love with it immediately. It's beautiful, modern, spacious, and has the most amazing views of the ocean and mountains. It's the same authentic view from more than 200 years ago, so there is no other property like it in all of Santa Barbara! We're happy to share this natural and beautiful serene setting with other people who also like to travel.
What makes this House unique
The property is situated in-between 2 private ranches, so it appears as if you are surrounded by hundreds of acres. The house also overlooks a lake, which makes you feel like you are on a boat, watching the sun glisten across the water every afternoon. There are many outdoor spaces to enjoy the surroundings, including a hiking trail to see the 180 degree ocean view, and a waterfall that trickles through the lush Hawaiian gardens. It is so relaxing that you immediately feel your stress level and blood pressure drop when you arrive.

I had reserved this rental for my wife’s birthday weekend. Communicating with the property manager was easy and pleasant. The property was clean and impressive. All of the beds were comfortable and clean. The restrooms were immaculate. The views were beautiful. All in all, we had a FABULOUS time! I would definitely consider this place again in the future. I would highly recommend this place.
Beautiful home, wonderful personal touches. Lovely stay, highly recommend this place! Host very easy to communicate with, helpful and friendly.
An amazing home and location
From the photos, you can see that the interior of the home is beautiful and modern. What you can't really see/determine from the photos are the wonderful views. The home is about 1.5 miles east of the Pacific Ocean, sitting on top of a (fairly steep) hill. The views of the Pacific Ocean and the surrounding mountains are EXCEPTIONAL. You will soak in the nature and the views, when sitting outside. You can even take a hike around the property and lake (although the lake trail is not for the faint of heart). The true beauty of this property is the location itself. That is what I and my family will truly remember about this trip. A+, all around. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
Wonderful home and property
Everything from the stunning views and landscape to the decor and layout of the home is perfect.
Beautiful house set in a stunning, tranquil location.
We had a wonderful time at Naples Ranch. The check in process was quick and efficient, good communication from the manager.
The location is very convenient (just off the highway) but you would never know as the house is tucked away over a couple of hills and sits looking out onto a serene valley, with a lake in the foreground and the sea around 2 miles in the distance. Local wildlife abounds (deer, ground squirrels, rabbits etc).
The house itself is stunning and has every creature comfort. The designers made the most of the scenery with panoramic views on every side through large picture windows.
Waking up to the Californian sunrise was very special.
Santa Barbara is only a few exits down the highway (20 mins max) and Goleta itself is a nice little town with plenty of restaurants/supermarkets etc.
There is a large choice of nice beaches either 20 mins north or 2 mins south.
Santa Barbara is a lovely town and we also really enjoyed Solvang and Montecito.
We had an awesome time at the ranch with the kids. The place is charming, clean and with beautiful views to the mountains and ocean. The kitchen is very well equipped and overall we had a great stay there.
