Carmel Valley estate description

Nestled in the hills of scenic Carmel Valley, lies the historic Holman Ranch. Built in 1928 as one of the first resorts of the area, Holman Ranch has been completely restored over the past 3 1/2 years. Complete with vineyards and horses, Holman Ranch is a true working ranch.

Our property is very unique and set up like a guest ranch. The 10 bedrooms are contained in 3 buildings built in 1940s and recently remodeled in 2009. 8 of the rooms are designed as hotel rooms with a separate entrance and en-suite bathroom. There is also a 2 bedroom, 2 bath house on the property complete with a kitchen and living room. Catering can be arranged for and there are plenty of restaurants in nearby Carmel Valley Village.

Enjoy peace and quiet, while surrounded by modern amenities. Sip margaritas by the pool while you bask in the Carmel Valley sun. Revive your sense of adventure with a private trail ride through our vineyards or a skeet shooting adventure. Have movie night in our game room or challenge family and friends to a friendly game of billiards, darts or horseshoes. We specialize in special events like weddings, corporate retreats, teambuilding and family reunions. We are happy to customize a package to meet your specific needs.

Like many early CA estates, the rustic and natural beauty is accentuated by a grand estate on the hillside. Holman Ranch is a rustically elegant oasis complete with all the modern amenities one would expect from a private estate rental.

We are a 400 acre ranch that has been recently restored and offers all the high end amenities that your guests would expect. We have cable television, wireless internet, phones with voicemail, full housekeeping, continental plus breakfast served every morning, swimming pool and fitness center.

The 10 guest rooms were restored in 2009 and 2012 and are part of the original guest ranch addition in the 1940s. Celebrities like Charlie Chaplin, Clark Gable and Joan Crawford stayed in them back in their heyday. We do have an ADA accessible room as well, should it be needed. In addition, the house also has a handsome Game Room, high-tech Conference Room, stately Great Room, horseshoe pit, bocce ball court and many other amenities.

In addition to our lodging, we also offer special event packages for your wedding, corporate event or any celebration. We look forward to hosting you soon. At Holman Ranch, the past is always present.

Holman Ranch is also proud to be one of Carmel Valley's premier bottlers of Estate Grown Wines and Olive Oil. Located at the northern most end of the Carmel Valley Appellation, our ranch resides approximately 12 miles inland from the Pacific Coast. Our wine varietals are unfined and unfiltered to protect the true varietal of the grape from harvest to bottle. We grow on approximately 19 acres of undulating terrain. Our 'Tuscan' Olive Trees produce a savory oil, with a hint of spice which is perfect for dipping, on salads or in any of your favorite recipes. Wine and Olive Oil Tastings are available 7 days a week. Please visit our website or call for more details.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2006

                  About the owner: My name is Hunter. My parents purchased this property and I run the special events department at this historic, newly restored Hacienda. We hope you'll come visit us soon!

                  Why the Owner Chose Carmel Valley:
                  For anyone who has visited Carmel Valley, they know why one would buy a vacation rental in this area. The weather is phenomenal, almost always sunny and 10-15 degrees warmer than our coastal cousins. We rarely get the fog in Carmel Valley, making it the perfect retreat for those that still want to enjoy the amenities of the Monterey Peninsula and lounge in the sun at the same time.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
                  We are an historic 392 acre ranch. We have horses, cattle, vineyards and olive orchards. Although we keep our agricultural traditions alive, we have fully restored this 1928 Hacienda back to its original grandeur. Now guests can enjoy a trip back in time, complete with all the modern amenities.
