With contemporary Mediterranean design, Rancho Maroma is an architectural masterpiece built by noted vineyard architect, Robert Mehl. Situated on a hilltop overlooking the entire Santa Ynez Valley, the serene 270-degree views simply take your breath away. Relax in the beautiful courtyard next to the fireplace or sunbathe by the pool and hot tub. Either way, you will surely enjoy every minute spent at this completely private estate.
Rancho Maroma is a green home 50 percent powered by solar panels and uses eco-friendly paint. Its thick adobe plaster is an energy efficient material that absorbs energy from the sun and radiates through the home when the weather gets cool, and in warmer months the material helps hold the coolness in the home from the previous night.
For the adventurer in you, take a walk down the country road surrounded by the property’s 20 beautiful acres. Once you return, shower off outside in the master bedroom’s outdoor privacy shower if you wish. Only six minutes to Los Olivos and surrounded by renowned vineyards such as Roblar, Bridlewood, and Brander, there is no excuse not to get out and sightsee! Cozy and inviting yet clean and modern, this five bedroom, three and a half bath home was built to make nature and artwork be seen through every window and door as you relax and take it all in.

“Beautiful, serene property. We had a great time celebrating my Mother In Law’s 75th birthday. Amazing house for a big family. ”
"Really lovely house. Very good kitchen and the views are incredible. May just be one of the best places to enjoy a sunset in the valley."
"We have stayed here numerous times with friends and family, but sometimes just on our own and every time we're amazed at how beautiful this place is. The house and property are so well maintained and the surrounding grounds are great fun to explore. Even in the heat of summer, the nights here are cool enough for an outside fire, and in winter, a late night hot tub is not out of the question. Some of the best sunsets in the Central Coast and you have a view of the whole SY Valley. It's just a short drive to Solvang, Downtown Santa Ynez or Los Olivos, all of which have great restaurants, wine tasting and shopping. You are right in the middle of wine country here, so book a car or, if you're feeling active, book wine tour through Santa Barbara Wine Country Cycling Tours! We can't wait to book again!"
"Thanks so much for a seamless visit! The house was obviously exceptional in and of itself, but the setting makes it truly unreal. Some weary travelers who'd left JFK that morning at 6am had their minds blown upon arrival!"
"We had a great time this weekend, the house is absolutely beautiful!!!! It was perfect, what a retreat......... we hope to be able to use it again sometime..... I already have another girlfriend that is interested in possible renting it out for a weekend this summer for a group of girls."
"We would like to thank you for providing us with such an exquisite and unique property. Rancho Maroma, as you indicated, is a gorgeous property with breathtaking views and we had a wonderful time. Hopefully we will be back in the near future."
"Just wanted to thank you for arranging our time at Rancho Maroma and tell you, not surprisingly, that we thought it was a magnificent property. Just gorgeous. The attention to detail is wonderful, and the views and sense of privacy unparalleled. Unfortunately, we visited during a heat wave, so we probably didn’t take advantage of all we could have done (we spent a fair amount of time just staying out of the heat!), but we got a sense of how lovely the Santa Ynez valley truly is. I’m wondering who the interior designer was? Whoever it was did an impeccable job – I wouldn’t change a thing. I was surprised that a house that is so high-end would be rented as a vacation home. Happily surprised! I can certainly imagine coming back for a return visit, when it’s not so hot."
I just wanted to let you know, we had such a wonderful time at Rancho Maroma over the weekend.
The house was just stunning with the most amazing view. It was perfect for 10 people."
"Thank you very much for an amazing time this past week/weekend. We had a GREAT time in an amazing house."
"Leanne- Just wanted to let you know that the property exceeded everyone’s expectations. It was stunningly beautiful and perfect for our weekend. We’ll definitely be renting it again in the coming months for a long weekend."
"I’ve been busy the last few days but finally found a few minutes to say how much we all enjoyed our stay at Rancho Maroma. We had a few architects in our group (me included) and we all thought the house (and location) was great. Especially the quality of the fixture and fitting (we notice things like that). Many thanks for helping make the weekend so memorable. We’re already looking forward to our next stay. Thanks again!"
We had an AMAZING time in Los Olivos for Christina and Josh’s wedding. It was filled with good laughs and memories. The house was absolutely incredible and provided the perfect place to catch up."
"I wanted to thank you so much for the amazing Rancho Maroma weekend! The house is spectacular, beautiful architecture and design, comfortable, accommodating, and we couldn’t believe the views. Completely breathtaking! I just can’t say enough about it! We had an awesome girls weekend and decided without a doubt we are going to return each year for an annual trip! The house couldn’t have been more perfect and the way you have everything set up and user friendly was incredible! The fact that we arrived Friday afternoon and never left the house until Sunday morning when we headed back to LA is a testament to how wonderful it was just to be on top of such a beautiful hill with everything we could have asked for! Thank you again so much! I can’t wait to return!!!"
"Rancho Maroma exceeded our expectations and it was the perfect retreat for our wedding party. The views of the valley from the pool were stunning! We would love to come back and stay at Rancho Maroma with friends/family in the future."
"Leanne, Rancho Maroma was perfect — we had a great time. The pictures on the website don’t do the place justice. Thanks again for everything. We really loved the house and hope to make coming up there a regular thing."
"What can we say about Rancho Maroma that doesn’t have superlatives in every sentence! We loved our stay at this incredible wine villa looking across the Santa Ynez valley. The home was beautifully appointed. We enjoyed all the area has to offer with the reward of coming back to our little gem on top of the hill. Thanks for your description of the property. It exceeded our expectations.
Warmest Regards until next time."
"I had the absolute time of my life at that gorgeous home!! I hope to return again soon. Rancho Maroma is simply spectacular."
"Thank you Leanne! We had such a great time, the home was even better than the photos, we will definitely stay again sometime soon."
Oh my gosh, we had such an amazing time at Rancho Maroma!!!!! The house was AMAZING, just perfect for all of our needs. My family LOVED staying there – we all said we would definitely come back again!
Thank you SO SO much for all of your help and support!"
"I would describe our stay at Rancho Maroma as magical. It was a surprise 40th anniversary trip for my parents and they were blown away to the point of tears when we arrived. We hit great weather and spent the bulk of the weekend around the pool enjoying the majestic views and incredible sunsets. The property exceeded our wildest expectations, we never wanted to leave. We did manage to pull ourselves away from the house and pool and get out to visit Los Olivos and the surrounding area for a great meal and fun wine tasting. Thank you for a truly amazing experience. We would love to rent the property again (and again, and again) and have recommended Santa Ynez Vacation Rentals to ALL of our friends and family."
"Rancho Maroma was a great choice for our group’s wine weekend in Santa Ynez. Situated in a lovely neighborhood of rolling hills and ranches, we were isolated enough to feel like we had really ‘gotten away from it all’ yet close enough to town and local vineyards that it was very convenient for everything we wanted to do. The house and surrounding grounds and vistas were gorgeous and the house was very spacious and private, just what we needed."
We loved the house and had a great time. We all have children and so it was a great get away from them.
"Thank you we had a great stay and loved the house. I’d like to rent it again for next year at the same time! Thank you!"
"We all very much enjoyed our stay! The accommodations were very comfortable and were perfect for our needs. I know that we all would love to book this house again very soon and I hope to be able to. Many of the girls have asked for the link to the house to send to friends who are planning events. I’m sure we’ll be in touch soon and thanks again for such an easy process."
I want to commend you on the whole rental process, all were very efficient – from booking, contracts, to the perfect directions to the house. Love the attention to details on providing coffee, laundry detergent and plenty of large beach towels for the pool. The house and the views were spectacular…one early morning we even saw deers eating grass by the pool. We had some kids with us and they enjoyed the large grass areas. We’ll definitely return."
"We had such an amazing weekend at Rancho Maroma. The house was perfect for my 40th birthday celebration and my friends and I truly had simply the best time! Also, I have nothing but the highest praise for Susie Clemens and her husband Fred, who did a little birthday dinner party for me on Saturday night. The food and atmosphere they created were tops!
Like other testimonials I’ve read, the house really exceeded our expectations and we had the most wonderful weekend. We look forward to renting from you again! Thanks for all of your help."
"This is a great property with a location that is secluded and quiet. Terrific views! This is the second time I’ve rented from Santa Ynez Vacation Properties and both times the homes have been very clean. I’ve stayed in some vacation properties that haven’t been clean and it affects the experience. Thanks!!!"
"Wow – what an exquisite home! The views are amazing and are reminiscent of the rolling hills of Tuscany. The property was immaculate and had every luxury. Design aficionados will love the interior, and creative types will be blown away by the natural beauty. It was the perfect place! Thank you Santa Ynez Vacation Rentals!"
"I recently stayed at Rancho Marona for a girls weekend. I can easily say it could be any more perfect than it was. Everything from booking the house through Santa Ynez vacation Rentals to the house itself and the plentiful accommodations were wonderful!! The house was very clean, bright, welcoming and cozy. My friends and I enjoyed a lovely evening in Santa Ynez and then cooked a great meal in the spectacular kitchen. The views were to die for and the pool and spa were just an added bonus. Thank you for making our weekend so memorable and special. I will definitely be back as soon as possible!!!"
We recently stayed at Rancho Maroma for a small get together with close friends for the weekend and had the absolute best time ever at this lovely and amazing home! Not only was it beautiful on the inside, with all the latest decorating styles and amenities, but the view were simply astonishing. If I was lucky enough to visit one of your vacation homes again I surely will be coming back to Rancho Maroma. Thank you for the warmest hospitality and all the comforts of a home for a small get away to the valley. A truly amazing business you have going and a new favorite customer in me!"
"Just wanted to thank you again. Rancho Maroma is such a dream. We all had an amazing weekend and it’s depressing to leave!! ;)"
"Thanks for checking how our stay was. It was incredible and I have already told people about your services. We will definitely use you again."
"Hi Leanne and Mark-
I just wanted to let you know how much my group enjoyed our weekend. The house was so beautiful and everything was perfect. I have rented a lot of homes like this, and this one was by far the best. We will all definitely be back. Thank you again for making everything easy and being so accommodating."
"Our stay was beyond wonderful! 🙂 Thank you!"
"This was one of the best vacation places I have ever rented. I organized a 'Sideways Bike Tour' for 7 of my friends and we had a ball. This home is a beauty and within close proximity to miles of great road biking."
