  • My Romantic Wedding

    "Rancho del Fresco was the perfect venue for my wedding. I'm from Oregon and my husband's family is from Northern California. We wanted a unique intimate destination wedding with our family and close friends. There were 30 of us at the home and another 18 guests stayed in nearby hotels. We arrived on Friday, settled in and had a casual rehearsal dinner on the main patio that evening. Saturday was perfect weather for our outdoor ceremony. We set up round dining tables in the main courtyard and had dancing down on the large terrace by the pool. Our wedding was more beautiful and easy than I ever had dreamed and Rancho del Fresco's dramatic views were the ultimate backdrop. The home was definitely built for easy flow and entertaining. It was great to have the two families together staying at one property, yet there was plenty of privacy for everyone. We relaxed on Sunday and stayed until Monday morning. I'm so glad I chose this estate for our wedding. It was the perfect start to our new life together."

  • Breathtakingly beautiful, wonderful owners to work with, all-around positive experience

    "My family and I had the pleasure of staying at the property this past August, and it was amazing from the moment we pulled into the driveway. Lea takes great pride in a friendly and informative welcome - after arriving after a long day of travel, we were delighted to see snacks and home-baked goodies waiting for us, as well as a personal tour of the property that was insightful and helpful. There were four of us and one toddler, and we never felt crowded, each with our own bedroom and bathroom. Major positives of the home that is by far the best in the area (as far as luxury appeal, where it sits in the neighborhood, and scenery) besides the obvious included a deluxe, easy-to-use sound system that you could personalize and control in all areas of the house, dimming lights throughout every room and pool, state-of-the-art kitchen and appliances, wonderful landscaping and areas to read/relax throughout the property, and location was perfect (just far enough away from it all, but still within a few miles of anything you would need). The neighborhood was quiet, peaceful and a great place to just wander around - there are a lot of trails for hiking, and it is also a great home to just roll out of bed and be able to go on a great, challenging (uphill mostly) morning run. The decor (including a piano, a few fireplaces, a great media room, and personalized touches) was nothing short of classy, beautiful, and very appropriate for a luxury home. Well-thought through amenities included fully stocked beauty supplies (nail polish selection, organic shampoo and conditioners, lotions, etc.), necessities (paper towels, paper plates, well-stocked kitchen with blender and all tools, etc.), spices, and cleaning supplies. Additionally, the owners are so friendly and great communicators, and they made it clear they would be at our disposal if we ever needed them for anything (which, we actually did not need them for anything anyway!). We will certainly return here and are already missing it, even though we only have been away for less than two weeks! We had looked at several different properties in the area to compare and are so happy we had the privilege to enjoy this property. As a well-traveled family, we have stayed at five-star properties around the world and would rate this home as top-of-the list for sure - you won't regret booking this property!"

  • Tuscan Villa in Santaluz, 284825

    "We had a wonderful vacation in Julio and Lindsay's Tuscany inspired villa. The home was clean, comfortable, relaxing and has great character and awesome panoramic views of the Rancho Santa Fe countryside. It really felt like home and was stacked with all basic essentials to make our stay fulfilling and enjoyable. The owners are very nice and accommodating people who take great pride in their home and are proactive in ensuring that their guests are getting everything they need to feel welcome and satisfied. And the Santaluz community has an old world architectural feel with natural beauty and topography - a real treat for walking. We highly recommend this place."

The children lived in the pool and theater room. Plenty of space to gather together and yet lots of privacy too. My grandchildren want to move there. We would go again in a heart beat."
