This property is absolutely beautiful. It is perfectly situated and meticulously maintained. The property's caretaker is a great guy who is there whenever you need him and he keeps everything looking fantastic. It was a wonderful place for a special getaway.

Wonderful memories made at this gorgeous estate!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great, great time together at this one of kind, thoughtfully and tastefully designed estate. We felt truly privileged and right at home. The property is so beautiful, you won't believe it until you see it! The kitchen is a cook's dream. The property manager was so responsive and gave us a great recommendation for a Mexican restaurant, Casa Blanca. The mornings are gorgeous and the pool and pool cabana are perfect!

Can't stop thinking about our vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this wonderful home and would love to call it ours. We had some travel issues getting in and so our timing got thrown off by several hours, but the caretaker graciously met us very late and welcomed us to the property and answered any questions we had. It was magical to wake up in the morning and see just what kind of place was ours for the next few days. The views in every direction are gorgeous and the landscaping is so tasteful--we just couldn't walk around without taking a picture of something. The house is very comfortable, clean, spacious and quiet. The birds come to the fountain in the morning and the sun sets on the flowers and stonework in a new and artful way each day. We enjoyed the pool and especially took advantage of the hot tub with the full moon. The view of the city at night competes with the view of the ocean and the islands in the day. Particulars: the kitchen is well-equipped, the pool house is equally so, the beds are comfortable, and bathrooms are clean and plentiful. The drive up to the house lets you know you are someplace special and it's nice to be able to hike right out of the front door. The drive down to amenities --area grocers, shopping, good breakfast spots--is quick and scenic and the drive into town is pretty painless. It was nice to go to the beach and take in that scene or walk the shops on State Street but even nicer to come home to peace and quiet. We wouldn't hesitate to book this home again or recommend it to anyone.

Stunning Property

  • 5 of 5

We live in Southern Calif, and wanted a place within driving distance, as we were meeting friends from east coast. This place is absolutely stunning, views to die for, amazing pool, cabana, top of the line appliances, and soooo relaxing but within 10 minute drive to downtown Santa Barbara. Hiking and biking from the ranch, great for couples or families. The kitchen is very well appointed, lots of basics spices, etc.., in the kitchen. We were blown away by the architecture and landscaping, and the outdoor entertaining spaces. You will not be disappointed.

Newport Beach, CA

Our family gives this property 10 stars! !

  • 5 of 5

A family vacation within driving distance from our home in Newport Beach was our goal since traveling long distances with our two year old grandson could be challenging. This property was beyond all our expectations in all aspects...the views, the layout of the house and all high-end touches could be found throughout the home. The views were beyond amazing, and we all felt at home immediately upon entering the luxurious and tastefully decorated home. We brought our three small dogs, and there was even a dog bed provided! If you are a cook, you will not be lacking for any kitchen utensils, dishes and beautiful serving dishes.

We hardly left the property since we had all we needed here. There were even toys, books and games for all ages to enjoy. Greg, a most helpful manager, met us at the property and gave us a tour and he was always available to answer any questions we had. The pool and pool cabana were incredible...even has a high-end comfortable murphy bed that lowers with the switch of a remote! We had guests that stayed in the pool cabana that had a full bathroom, kitchen, seating areas, dining room table, washer/dryer, large screen TV and beautiful window seats that could be converted to single beds. The salt water pool and spa were heated and we used this on a daily basis as we looked out enjoying the 360 Want to sit out on a patio, not a problem, many patios and stone picnic tables are available throughout the property. As you can tell, we all had the best time and will definitely stay here again.
