San Ysidro Ranch

San Ysidro Ranch is a luxurious property in Montecito, Santa Barbara. It’s where JFK and Jackie had their honeymoon. It’s something of a magnet for the American elite.

Montecito is the most upmarket neighbourhood in Santa Barbara. Your neighbours will include Oprah Winfrey. It’s just a 20-minute drive to central Santa Barbara, where you’ll find plenty of excellent bars and restaurants. San Ysidro Ranch is an ideal choice for a staycation in California. Its gardens are deservedly famous – you’ll be greeted with one of the finest views in California.
