A Christmas we'll never forget!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the California Ranch style home! It was a perfect setting for our large family. It was comfortable, warm, and cozy with the fireplace in the main room. We had everything we needed to have a wonderful time plus a Christmas tree to make it even more perfect! We particularly liked playing tennis OK n the court and playing soccer in the large grass area.

The toddlers Enjoyed picking some tangerines from trees and the play gym. The ping pong and pool table was a hit for the adults. It truly is the best place for a large group. We will book again! Thank you Benson Family for sharing your home.

Wonderful home for family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted to find this comfortable home situated only a couple of miles from a family wedding. Four related families gathered from Wisconsin, Santa Barbara, and Long Island. We each had our own bedroom and bathroom and made great use of the spacious home and back yard with a beautiful swimming pool and tennis court. While it felt quite a responsibility at first to make sure we all followed the (quite extensive) house rules, we soon learned that Chris was readily available to help us out and answer any questions. He sincerely wanted to make our stay a successful one. The kitchen was well-equipped, and we used the outside barbecue. The home is furnished with a homey rather than a luxurious ambiance, but that perfectly suited our crowd. Should the occasion arise we would certainly choose to stay there again.

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.
