This home is for sophisticated five star travelers who wants their own private San Ysidro Ranch Hotel to themselves. A gated English tudor estate on 1.3 acres, our guests and friends refer to it as the ‘Sanctuary’.. The home and gardens are expansive yet intimate, and are surrounded by rugged mountain views, large Oak trees, and exceptional landscaping. If you consider yourself a green thumb and enjoy gardens, this is your home.
The electronic wooden gates and enclosed fence line around the property make for a Dog lover’s paradise. I know. I witness my sixteen year old Golden Retriever turn into an 8 year old while my Boxer gallops for glee across the yard. Inside, cool Mexican pavers allow for perfect napping conditions as well. This is important because any holiday traveler knows how much we worry about the well being of our pet while we dine at restaurants, play golf or tennis, attend a Polo match, mountain bike or surf or receive a much deserved spa treatment. We prefer sophisticated travelers, preferably a mature couple, who enjoy traveling with their beloved pet. We do not rent to large groups. The master bedroom has a a California King, fire place, walk in closets, vaulted wooden ceilings and is surrounded by trees. The reading room downstairs is perfect for morning coffee and the morning paper while the living room with fire place is the ideal couch potato spot. (The Los Angeles Times Sunday Edition is included). Two guest rooms down stairs have their own private bathrooms with french doors that open out to a patio overlooking the expansive yard. The kitchen is equipped with 5 Star Appliances. It also comes with a Nespresso machine, coffee machine, blender, fine dish ware and china, wine glasses and tumbler glasses for an afternoon gin and tonic or evening scotch. A private detached laundry room with side by side washer/dryer machines is across the kitchen entrance. Above the garage, the guest room has been converted to a state of the art gym with ellipitcal machine and bike. Free weights, stretch cords and a mat to stretch out are also included. French doors open to a beautiful view of the gardens while you do your morning cardio. A stereo and wireless internet also allows you to turn on music of your choice. Beneath the gym is an indoor ping pong table and two mountain bikes if you choose to hit the trails which are right down the street from us off the famed Romero Canyon. The Sundance Jacuzzi is brand new, state of the art, powerful and spotless. Set it to 102′ or 103, slip off your robe at night, and stare at the stars through the canopy of trees as the crickets and owls serenade you under the moonlit sky. An outside barbecue and large deck space with rod iron chairs and plush cushions surrounds an antique tiled dining table. Chaizze lounges also allow for napping or reading the great novel that has escaped you for quite some time. Manicured gravel trails lead to an outdoor fire pit surrounded by four chairs. The gravel trails will remind you of a provincial French Chatteau. The neighborhood exudes charm and is excellent for long walks, jogs or bike rides. Alisos is adorned by a canopy of trees and exudes that classic rustic flavor where you can hear the crunch of leaves and smell the cool, crisp air mixed in with the rich aromatic branches. I enjoy that the streets are flat which allows easy walking or bike riding. Yet, walk two blocks over and you are on the base of LILAC street and you can walk the steep hills for more excercise and look at more of the prestigious estates of Montecito. This is your own private oasis it is for the sophisticated traveler who understands 5 star living and wants the solitude of a charming home for themselves and their pets over hotel living.
