Bacara Resort and Spa

When visiting the Gaviota area in order to see Hollister Ranch, those who prefer upscale accommodations could do no beter than enjoying a stay at the Bacara Resort and Spa.

El Capitan Canyon Resort

When coming from out of the area, some Hollister Ranch Realty clients will spend an evening at the El Capitan Canyon Resort. This upscale campround is about 15 minutes from the entrance gate to Hollister Ranch and is a very comfortable location for a natural experience with all the amenities at one's disposal.

New Hollister Ranch Listing

The west end of Hollister Ranch is the most unvisited and unaffected part of the Ranch. Other than parcel owners in the area, few venture into essentially undeveloped Cojo Canyon.

Before purchasing Rancho Cielo in Santa Barbara County, Ronald and Nancy Reagan considerd property at Hollister Ranch. Wendie and I were fortunate to be there for the visit and take some photographs.

Incoming Storm

Hollister Ranch is in the cross-hairs of an incoming storm. February was pretty dry, but the forecasters are telling us to fasten our seatbelts for some significan precipitation in March.

Clearing winds at Hollister Ranch

After the passage of a low pressure rain event at Hollister Ranch, the following high pressure cell can kick up a stiff breeze in the Santa Barbara Channel for a day.

Hollister Ranch horse country

It's the season for newborns, and the Hollister Ranch horse owners often see additions to their family. Many clients of Hollister Ranch Realty purchase property here in order to enjoy riding in the backcountry as well as along the 8 1/2 miles of Common Area sandy beach away from any negative influences. Rancho San Augustine will board owners' horses when such facilities are unavailable on their own Hollister Ranch parcel.

Sea Lions

Sunrise at the Hollister Ranch found these sea lions basking in the rising sun in the east as the full moon sets in the west. Not just the land, but the shoreline at Hollister Ranch is also a wildlife preserve. For almost 20 years, Hollister Ranch Realty agent Wendie Kruthers has served as the coordinator for the Hollister Ranch Conservancy's Tidepool School for local elementary school students from Santa Barbara to Santa Maria.

Hollister Ranch Sunset

Last evening the Astronomy Club of Santa Barbara came out to Hollister Ranch and set up their magnificent telescopes at our Bulito Cabaña. Not only did their telescopes enable us to see so many more stars, the Club members were also a wealth of information and fun facts about all we saw. Since all of this event took place in the dark, photos wouldn’t be very useful. So, I’ve attached a photo of the visual from Hollister Ranch Realty that we enjoyed looking over Point Conception on the Western end of the Gaviota Coast a couple of nights ago.
