Rancho Maroma Estate - Mediterranean Masterpiece

Bedrooms 5
Half Baths1
Property type estate
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 10)

With contemporary Mediterranean design, Rancho Maroma is an architectural masterpiece built by noted vineyard architect, Robert Mehl. Situated on a hilltop overlooking the entire Santa Ynez Valley, the serene 270-degree views simply take your breath away. Relax in the beautiful courtyard next to the fireplace or sunbathe by the pool and hot tub. Either way, you will surely enjoy every minute spent at this completely private estate.

Rancho Maroma is a green home 50 percent powered by solar panels and uses eco-friendly paint. Its thick adobe plaster is an energy efficient material that absorbs energy from the sun and radiates through the home when the weather gets cool, and in warmer months the material helps hold the coolness in the home from the previous night.

For the adventurer in you, take a walk down the country road surrounded by the property’s 20 beautiful acres. Once you return, shower off outside in the master bedroom’s outdoor privacy shower if you wish. Only six minutes to Los Olivos and surrounded by renowned vineyards such as Roblar, Bridlewood, and Brander, there is no excuse not to get out and sightsee! Cozy and inviting yet clean and modern, this five bedroom, three and a half bath home was built to make nature and artwork be seen through every window and door as you relax and take it all in.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Really lovely house. Very good kitchen and the views are incredible. May just be one of the best places to enjoy a sunset in the valley.

A little slice of Tuscany in the Santa Ynez Valley

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here numerous times with friends and family, but sometimes just on our own and every time we're amazed at how beautiful this place is. The house and property are so well maintained and the surrounding grounds are great fun to explore. Even in the heat of summer, the nights here are cool enough for an outside fire, and in winter, a late night hot tub is not out of the question. Some of the best sunsets in the Central Coast and you have a view of the whole of the SY Valley. It's just a short drive to Solvang, Downtown Santa Ynez or Los Olivos, all of which have great restaurants, wine tasting and shopping. You are right in the middle of wine country here, so book a car or, if you're feeling active, book wine tour through Santa Barbara Wine Country Cycling Tours! We can't wait to book again!

Wonderful with friends.

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing. It was so relaxing to hang out in the beautiful hot tube taking in all the stars at night. The location is great, private but close to charming resturants. There were 3 couples in our group and we enjoyed staying in this house so much. The floor plan is perfect, the kitchen is a dream and it just feels like you stepped into a place you never want to leave. Decorated in a Mediterranean style, my husband and I loved it and will be back!!

A Truly Spectacular Place

  • 5 of 5

I have vacationed in some of the most beautiful spots in the world – from Europe to the Caribbean to Fiji, Hawaii, and Costa Rica – and can honestly say that this is one of the most spectacular locations I’ve ever been to. It’s that good. The home is warm, inviting, well-laid out, and very comfortable – perfect for a weekend getaway or an extended family gathering (we’ve stayed there multiple times, with as few as 4 people and as many as 10). The views will literally take your breath away: sit in the hot tub watching the sun go down, or take in the views from the quite private outdoor shower, and thank me later. The woodsy property is great for exploring, hiking, or just communing with nature – and the surrounding towns (Los Olivos, Solvang) are charming and teeming with fun shops, top notch wineries, and a number of very good restaurants. It’s close to LA, but feels like a million miles away. Fantastic home base for biking, hiking, horseback riding, or just sitting around doing nothing. This is a very special place you’ll want to come back to again and again.

Breathtaking views of the Santa Ynez Mountains with luxury accomodations!

  • 5 of 5

My family has stayed at this property multiple times. We are blown away by the views around the property, as well as the privacy and beautiful home. Located only minutes from some of the best restaurants and great boutique shopping in some of the quaint small towns, it also provides a sense that you are far out in the countryside. There is great bike riding in the area, as well as horseback riding, hiking, and even gliders nearby that take you out over the ridge to see the ocean. You can drive or bike to wineries in the area, visit the lavender fields, or the local farmers market. We spent many nights cooking in the well equipped kitchen and ate on the patio overlooking the pool or in the courtyard with a nice fire. The home is laid out nicely to accommodate our large family while still providing many spaces to sit quietly and read alone. I highly recommend this property and we will continue to vacation here often.

This is one of the finest places I've EVER staid. And the surrounding areas and restaurants are amazing even though once there, one does not want to leave. Bring a bike and a camera and plan to truly rest and have fun.

Beautiful, well-equipped and very clean mediterranean home. It has plenty of space (we had 4 adults and 4 kids). The pool and hot tub over look the Santa Ynez Valley, but the best part is the outdoor shower. It's private, but hidden amongst a garden filled with rosemary bushes. It's also just minutes car drive away from down town Santa Ynez and Los Olivos (great restaurants ). We also love how close it is to some of the best wineries in the valley. Great location if your into hiking or cycling. Management was very friendly and helpful.
