Magical!

  • 5 of 5

A truly spectacular bit of property. 2 acres of usable land, wonderfully tucked away for privacy. I stayed with my 5 year old son and he and I always had lots of things to do. Between basketball, tennis, riding bikes in the totally private/secure driveway, playing on the big playground, swimming in the pool/jaccuzi, checking for eggs from the chickens, picking fresh stevia and lemongrass from the garden. Magical!

The interior of the house could certainly use some updating, but that's fairly par for the course in Rancho Santa Fe, and ultimately didn't detract from our enjoyment.

We've already scheduled our next visit for a much longer stay!

Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Great location, plenty to do for kids and adults. Very comfortable, lots of space. We had 8 adults and 5 kids staying at the house, and some days 10 or so relatives visiting. Chris was very pleasant to work with and went over all the details of the house when we arrived. The kids loved the pool, hot tub, basketball goal, tennis, fruit trees, riding toys, and indoor tents and tunnels. The adults played a lot of pool and ping pong, and sat outside enjoying the scenery. We had a variety of ages from 15 months to 88 years old and everybody had a great time.

Extremely comfortable, a relaxed place for the entire family from 73 year old to 1 year old.

  • 5 of 5

The Ranch is a perfect family vacation, and one feels that families have enjoyed it over the years to the fullest extent. The layout is perfect for our combined families with sufficient privacy for grandparents, parents and children. Large, comfortable bedrooms, each with its own bath was a huge bonus.

Outside and physical opportunities abound with tennis, ping pong, jungle gym, and just enjoying the beautiful grounds. Picking up the eggs each day was something to look forward to, and the plum tree yielded delicious treats each morning. We had no problem with wi fi connections at all.

The central living room is a haven in the evening, and we would very much like to come back. Our entire family think it was the perfect choice of accommodation, and area.

Private Rancho Estate Indeed -- Lived Up to Its Billing

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was a six-star experience in accommodation, privacy and amenities. The premises are well-maintained - the house, rooms, swimming pool, tennis court, and even the sprawling ground with various mature fruit-bearing trees, which the Landlord encourage us to pick for personal and on-premises consumption.

And adding extra dimension is the presence of two prolific egg-laying chicken which produced about two eggs a day, available to guest for consumption. A memorable highlight!

The house lay-out afforded individual room privacy. On the other hand, the well-placed well-placed public or shared rooms accorded easy, relaxed and dynamic group interaction.

The landlord was very gracious and took time and effort to familiarize guests with the facilities' features and operation.

The location offered various access points to Freeway 5, for a choice on best way to go to desired destination.

We'd highly recommend the accommodation for a great group or family experience!
