A serene and secluded horse ranch on the legendary Gaviota Coast of Santa Barbara, CA. With its lush grounds, and Hawaiian flare, this private, yet luxurious property is behind 2 gates, and has amazing views of the Pacific Ocean and the Santa Barbara mountains. The parcel was originally part of the historic Rancho Dos Pueblos, yet it is only 11 miles from the Santa Barbara airport, and 14 miles from downtown Santa Barbara. The Bacara Resort and Sandpiper Golf course are only 2 miles away, and Solvang is a short 20 minute drive to the North along the coast. This modern masterpiece home offers the ultimate in comfort, with high quality linens and beds, and 2 indoor jacuzzis. The open concept floor plan has 2 master suites, with a 3rd bedroom/bathroom that can sleep a total of 6 guests, or 3 couples. Additionally, there is a fold out queen bed that can comfortably sleep another 2, and an attic loft that can sleep an additional 3 guests if necessary. There are IPE decks surrounding the house, with an outdoor barbecue and natural waterfall to enjoy the outdoor surroundings. There is also a covered stable that can house horses for that next local polo match. Celebrate your family wedding, college graduation, or special occasion in style and comfort, while maintaining privacy and peace.

About Naples Ranch
We live in Southern California and have 3 grown children. We eventually want to retire to Naples. We've been married for 24 years, and hope to have more time to travel and enjoy the outdoors.
Naples Ranch purchased this House in 2016
Why Naples Ranch chose Goleta
We graduated from University of California at Santa Barbara in the 1980's, and have wanted to retire here ever since. We found the remote ranch property by chance, and fell in love with it immediately. It's beautiful, modern, spacious, and has the most amazing views of the ocean and mountains. There is no other property like it in all of Santa Barbara, so we hope to retire there someday, but also share the natural and beautiful serene setting with others.
What makes this House unique
The property is situated in between 2 private ranches, so there is always a view of grazing cows on the hills surrounding the ranch. The house overlooks a lake, which makes you feel like you are on a boat, watching the sun glisten across the water every afternoon. There are many outdoor spaces to enjoy the surroundings, including a hiking trail to see the 180 degree ocean view, and a waterfall that trickles through the lush Hawaiian gardens.

This is a truly spectacular and very special property on all fronts. I will be yet another guest who says the pics, which are GREAT, don't capture all this lovely property has to offer. The property itself is huge, with a hiking trail around the lake, and lots of lovely little pathways. The location is totally private (as well as gated) and although you are "away from it all," you are actually close to everything. Freeway access is close so you can be in town within minutes.
The home is perfection with 360 degree views of the ocean and lake. The design is flawless and everything is modern & impeccably maintained - this home was clearly well planned down to the smallest details and the owners skimped on NOTHING. We took the advice from other reviewers and brought in food to cook-- each couple taking one night. The kitchen is a foodie's dream with top end appliances and cookware (Calphalon), tons of space to spread out, two sinks and EVERYTHING you need to cook a spectacular meal, including panty basics like olive oil, spices, condiments, etc. We particularly loved the beautiful serve-ware which made food presentation amazing. And we loved having our Nespresso in the morning out on the patio.
Andrea, the homeowner, was so welcoming and totally responsive to questions. We were greeted with a beautiful bouquet of red roses, such a nice touch. She has clearly put her heart into this property and is so generous to share it. There were so many little touches-- games, movies, cozy blankets, super comfortable beds and linens- we lacked for nothing.
We feel so fortunate to have stayed at Naples Ranch. We will DEFINITELY want to stay here again!
Beautiful secluded home
This was a perfect home for our short family getaway. The views from this house are beautiful and the home itself is an architectural wonder! Just as the other reviewers stated, the photos do not do this place enough justice. You feel completely secluded with only the gorgeous surrounding nature in view. With 360 degree views of the ocean to the mountains opposite you'll feel like you're in a perfectly enveloped glass bubble. Our host Andrea was amazing and very responsive throughout our stay. They were very accommodating of our requests and even set up a crib for our baby. Our family had a wonderful time using the kitchen and backyard grill. We only wished there was a pool or hot tub! I cannot recommend this place enough! Thank you Andrea!
360 degrees of view: ocean, lake and mountains. Beautiful and natural.
The Architecture is well thought out. Many design details. It has a waterfall which is a beautiful place to enjoy a cocktail or meditate. I loved it.
Most wonderful place to stay. The views are astonishing. The house is a dream.
We could not have asked for a better place to stay. We have a big family and went to Santa Barbara for my daughter’s graduation from UCSB. The house was the perfect place to spend time with our family. Beautiful views. We saw deer and a fox on our walk around the area. Lots of places to venture out. We will definitely come back to this place.
Fantastic Upscale House in Amazing Setting
We had a great time at this property - my family and I spent a couple of nights here on a spring break getaway. The place was very upscale with a modern layout (pictures did not capture just how nice the property is), immaculate, and thoughtfully appointed and stocked with everything we needed. By far the nicest vacation rental at which we have stayed. The grounds were huge and very private, with amazing ocean and lake views. Very close to Santa Barbara and the Santa Ynez Valley / Solvang. Honestly, hanging out at the house was one of our favorite activities on the trip. Andrea was terrific with communication, and gave us great tips for our stay. We will be back!
Beautiful escape at Naples Ranch!
We really appreciated staying at Naples Ranch!
Andrea was so thoughtful and communicative both before and during our stay. From the directions (the ranch is a little ways west of Santa Barbara/Goleta and set back from Highway 101 by two gates) to our personalized welcome letter, to all the thoughtful details (including a crib and high chair set up for our baby!), she made us feel so welcome.
All the pictures are accurate-- this home is really done to perfection! I would characterize it as three master suites, each with its own spa bathroom. The master bedroom is on the main floor, and the two other suites are on the lower level. Full-size laundry, spa toiletries, and beautiful, fresh linens made our trip easy.
We enjoyed the outdoor space even more with its gorgeous tropical landscaping and phenomenal views of the Pacific Ocean and mountains. There was even a telescope in the living room to see the goats on a nearby hill by day and all the stars at night. The barbecue outside was great for grilling. We only wish it had a hot tub or pool! :) We would definitely recommend and stay again.
