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

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.

Gorgeous views drive intensive

  • 4 of 5

I found the property to be stunning views and fun animals and small pool. The price you pay for the sanctuary is that it is a bit of a drive up in the hills. My only complaint would be that the interior is over decorated. Difficult to cook with the island counter loaded with large wooden items. It also blocks the view to the living room to converse with the others in the group. So as long as you are clear on the drive back to town and alittle thinning out of Lrg items in the kitchen it is great!

What a place to ring in 2017. The ranch was stunning, the home was perfect, & the hot tub was awesome. Not enough positive adjectives to describe this great place. Highly recommend!

Amazing view and serene location

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to have the opportunity to stay twice during the month of September. We were looking for a tranquil, private getaway. We got that and more. The hot tub was great! The kitchen has all you need to prepare a meal plus plenty of staples are on hand, in case you forgot something. All communication with Kristine was pleasant.

We look forward to staying again soon.

The sounds of silence

  • 5 of 5

One of the things about this property is that the pictures don't do justice to what your eyes and soul will experience: total calm, listening to the sounds of nature, the wind brushing the oak trees, the endless views, the stunning sunsets. The house has everything you need and it was pristine and clean. It was a delight staying here. We got a call from the neighbor, asking us if everything was ok and that if we needed anything, she would try to help. She even offered if we needed anything from town, as she was driving down the following day. Yes, it is a drive to the nearest town, but...that's exactly what we wanted: get away from it all. Enjoyed lounging on the deck, sipping on rose', enjoying the views and listening to the sounds of silence.

We will be back.

Kristine, thank you for making our getaway a breeze.
