An Absolutely Wonderful Retreat
We recently returned from our fantastic trip to San Luis Obispo and our equally fantastic stay at Higuera Ranch. What a lovely home and such a perfect location for 15 of us to meet up on an annual reunion trip for people coming primarily from Los Angeles and the Bay Area. The experience of driving onto the property and passing the old rustic barn, the olive trees and the vineyards, and then arriving at the beautiful home is unique and breathtaking. The main house is gorgeous and has a welcoming feel with comfortable furnishings and a great kitchen. You'll immediately see the pool and spa and the kids went crazy for the water slide. The outdoor grill is something special too, it's the kind you see at big ranches where they barbecue for tons of people at once. The property is huge with fun amenities like a horseshoe court and it's own freestanding gym. We spent a lot of time in the pool, playing games, cooking great meals, and just plain hanging out. We took advantage of the other house on the property as well, which is a five minute walk up the road and gave everyone in our group the chance to have their own bed and in most cases, their own rooms and bathrooms. There were trips to the nearby beach, visits to wineries, and some hiking excursions as well; all within just a few minutes of the property. Markets, coffee shops, and restaurants, were all close too. There is plenty to do in SLO, but to be honest, it is hard to leave Higuera Ranch because it is so beautiful and comfortable. Kristin made the process of booking her property easy and painless. Something we've come to appreciate more and more. And the groundskeeper Chris was equally as pleasant and helpful. Anything that we needed, Chris was there within minutes. If something needed fixing, he did it himself or called someone immediately to come sort it out. In trying to put this trip together, we had a lot of challenges with other homes. But it was meant to be that we discover Higuera Ranch and we all agreed that we may have just found our permanent place that we come back to every year.
