Guest House!

Needing some fresh air and space to think? The beauty is you can experience the California countryside and be only 15 minutes from the beach and less than an hour from Santa Barbara.

Jalama Road is the 14 mile windy road that meanders past checkered fields and golden valleys through the oak-dotted hills of the Santa Ynez Mountains ... reminiscent of California back in the early part of the 20th century. The road leads into Jalama Beach, a beach of great beauty and solitude, known for its world famous surfing spot, Tarantula Point and "The Ranch". This cottage is the granny quarters of the 110 year old original Jalama Ranch headquarters house. It sits on mile 2 of Jalama Road in the middle of a butterbean field on our cattle ranch and butterbean farm only 15 minutes from Jalama Beach. The ranch has been in the movie "Grindhouse" by Quentin Tarantino and the Daniel Day-Lewis Movie, "There Will Be Blood".
