Nestled in the Montecito foothills of Southern California’s wine country, San Ysidro Ranch has provided a tranquil vacation destination for discriminating travelers for over a century. Guests are drawn to the Santa Barbara hideaway for its blend of natural beauty, romantic heritage and classic luxury. Myth and history mingle in the lush garden where Vivien Leigh and Sir Laurence Olivier exchanged vows; in the setting of John and Jackie Kennedy’s honeymoon retreat.

Is there a playground or activities for preschool children?
As most rooms and cottages have water features, the Ranch is not the best choice to get away to with small children. We went a little further north to Santa Barbara for a more family friendly resort/hotel.

How good the spa is?
The San Ysidro Ranch now offers all treatments in our new Spa, which was recently opened. In-Cottage treatments are still available if guests prefer.

"Cottages along creek are nice, but don't get a lot of sun. If u want sun, request a cottage on the opposite side of the property from creek"
"All the rooms are good. They differ only in accordance with the size of your treasury."
"The higher up on the hill, the better the view."
"Splurge on a water view, it's worth it."
"We had one of the "Citrus" cottages - a 2-bedroom with beautiful views. Staff I talked to ranked these units among the best."
