San Ysidro Ranch~Montecito




San Ysidro Ranch is nestled in the jasmine, sage and lavender scented foothills of the Santa Ynez Mountains. The 500-acre ocean view paradise is rated America's #1 hotel by Forbes Traveler.

Jack and Jackie Kennedy spent part of their honeymoon in one of the resort’s luxurious bungalows. And when I lived in Montecito--long before security became tighter--I regularly jogged through The Ranch, which is a setting for scenes in my novel ‘French Heart.’
