Settle in at this 550-acre paradise and you’ll see why John and Jackie Kennedy spent part of their honeymoon here, at this resort tucked away in the foothills of Montecito. The San Ysidro Ranch’s lushly planted acres are filled with fragrant flowers and plants, and stunning vistas of the Pacific Ocean and the Channel Islands can be seen in the distance. The bungalows, with their cozy blend of overstuffed chintz armchairs, oriental rugs and vaulted, wood-clad ceilings, provide luxuries like wood-burning fireplaces and specialty linens. Exceptional cuisine is a hallmark of the property, and the two restaurants here provide charming settings for the imaginative food.
