Entering this property gives you a hint of what's to come. Besides a warm welcome at Reception, our cottage was charming as we walked through beautiful gardens on a stone path. The cottage was decorated as if a well-traveled owner from Europe and Asia lived here. Comfortable beds, a porch/patio giving us glimpses of the ocean, chirping birds in the...

Reviewed 14 February 2017

From the moment you check in with a warm welcome at the Hacienda you feel like a beloved family member. The service is like no other..... attentive, friendly and courteous. The cottages are cozy, private, and impeccably kept. We have stayed in Pepper and Iris on separate occasions and both were simply amazing. The grounds of San Ysidro are what...

I have always wanted to stay here, so I booked our 21st anniversary getaway. I can tell you that they made us feel like royalty! We were surrounded with the most beautiful gardens and they upgraded us to our own cottage with private patio and Jacuzzi. It looked and felt like we were staying in the French countryside. The cottage...

Lydia and I went to San Ysidro Ranch for champagne brunch after attending mass at Santa Barbara Mission on Sunday April 2nd. We found the welcome tepid, the food adequate but overpriced at $75 per person and the physical environment distracting in that flies buzzed around our table (which was indoors) throughout the meal. We had visited other properties belonging...

I’m terribly sorry the Stonehouse Brunch did not live up to your expectations on your recent visit. Our team strives to provide the highest quality of service and we will utilize your observations to make improvements. We hope to have the opportunity to demonstrate this commitment on a future visit to the Stonehouse Restaurant. Mark Muratori Managing Director

First visited SYR over 30 years ago as a child. It was magic then & still is now. I stayed in a lovely room - Magnolia- with outdoor shower, hot tub & four poster bed. All very homely and yet immaculate - lots of nice individual touches of decor in room, this is very definitely not a chain hotel. The...

Thank you for making our visit so special, we really appreciated the fabulous service and lovely location.

Stayed here for a work function and it did not disappoint. The whole cottage experience is so unique. Fabulous bedroom set-up, very spacious bathroom, quaint family room with nice fireplace, and nice outdoor patio & splash pool/hot tub. For whatever reason, could never get 1 of my 2 TVs to work, but then again, I wasn't there to watch TV....

Great getaway to relax and be pampered. From the moment we arrived on the property we knew this was something special. Starting with checking in at the Hacienda. The staff is very welcoming and attentive. We stayed in Wisteria, one of 41 uniquely beautiful cottages. The cottage offers luxury, comfort, and privacy.

Call it a hotel or a resort or heaven. Call it magical. Call it beautiful and relaxing. One would have to look far and wide to find a better place to spend time. SYR doesn't miss a trick in making their guests feel welcome and special. Couple that with a beautiful property ( ours was a cottage called Creek) excellent...
