About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Welcome to The Dragonfly Ranch

Imagine waking to a vision of tranquil beauty... Stepping out onto a vast 3,000 square foot deck as your eyes take in the luxuriant view of horses grazing, wild flowers blooming, endless sky and an ocean view with not another house to be seen. Just you and the natural world nestled in the rolling hills of the central coast..

The Dragonfly Ranch was originally a portion of a historical 6,000 acre Spanish ranch named Asuncion (or to rise up), the Asuncion took it's name because of it's high elevation (1800 feet). The view is very similar to the Hearst Castle's as it is the same elevation, just more rolling mountains. The amazing thing is that half of the 6,000 acres is not even fenced so you can hike for hours without ever touching pavement or just walk the private 3.5 mile winding road.

This property is so unique that it is truly something one has to experience to believe just how magical it is.

About Kristine Brown

Hello, my name is Kristine and I am holding one of my two daughters in this photo. We live in Manhattan Beach and own two rental properties, a condo in Aspen and Dragonfly Ranch on the Central coast. I love it when guests arrive at the ranch and they call me, sounding mesmerized and almost speechless. It makes me feel good to be able to share such an amazing place.

Kristine Brown purchased this house in 2002

Why Kristine Brown chose World

We bought this rental property because some day we would like to live there full time. It is our dream property and I think it will be yours too.

What makes this house unique

The relaxing quality that the ranch has is unlike any other place. It is the perfect Central Coast getaway, a meal for your soul. One can't help but feel the strength of the land when they are there and everyday problems seem to not seem so important. It is a private getaway that will take your mind off anything in 'real life'. The only problem is, you won't want to go back.

Secluded ranch with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

Dragonfly Ranch is an amazing and unique property. If you are lucky enough to spend time there you will see why there are so many repeat visitors. The location is completely private, yet also close to many activities the area has to offer. And the view is simply fantastic. The photos don't do it justice. We very much enjoy the hiking available just out the front door of the property. But it's the animals -- including the friendly ranch cat -- that are the biggest hit with smaller visitors. The home itself is incredibly comfortable, with a well stocked kitchen and decor that fits the property perfectly. Places like this remind you why a vacation rental can be so much more relaxing than staying in a fancy hotel. Don't miss it!

Stunning views, comfortable and relaxing rooms, a true treasure of a vacation spot. We celebrated our daughters's graduation and had plenty of space for our extended family to gather, a kitchen big enough to make big meals and everything we needed to cook and share meals. There is so much natural beauty to discover here, but my favorite might just be the amount of stars to be seen at night! Amazing!!

A little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

Dragonfly ranch was our getaway from it all - memorial day weekend trip and it was more than what we could have asked for!

The views - are stunning to say the least - add to that the peaceful surroundings and you have yourself a wonderful morning!

The horses, alpaca's and gollum the cat - are all super friendly and a joy to be around! The kids all had a lot of fun learning to be up close to these lovely, friendly creatures

Finally - Kristine was a wonderful host. The house was clean and had everything we could have needed. She was readily available on the phone to answer any questions we may have had and was helpful in pointing out where the trails were!

All in all a great vacation! I hope to be back

Thanks Kristine!
