Hope Ranch

Tranquility comes easily when you live in paradise.

Welcome to Hope Ranch

2,000 acres of Pacific Coast paradise

Tranquility comes easily when you live in paradise. Tucked between the Pacific Coast’s crystalline waters and the stunning hillsides of the Santa Ynez mountain range, Hope Ranch is surrounded by natural beauty. This exclusive, private community is defined by its serene landscape and bountiful sunshine that make outdoor activities the norm. Lesser known than neighboring Montecito, Hope Ranch offers the same luxurious appeal without the notoriety. With a median home value of $2.6 million, Hope Ranch estates range in size from comfortable 1 acre lots to secluded 50-acre ranches.

People & Lifestyle

Favored by established career men and women, there is a sophisticated character imbued in Hope Ranch that creates a strong sense of community. Residents in Hope Ranch are granted access to the city’s private beach, which requires a residential keycard, as well as access to private tennis courts, equestrian trails, picnic areas, and the La Cumbre Country Club’s golf course. Twenty-two miles of equestrian trails intertwine with city roads, making this community ideal for anyone craving a slower pace of living.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

With Hope Ranch’s 300 sunny days per year, brunch doesn’t get better than at Boathouse at Hendry’s Beach. This upscale, oceanfront seafood restaurant is crafting gourmet dishes from breakfast through dinner, with sumptuous twists on longtime favorites, like eggs Benedict with house-cured salmon and crispy pork belly and sea scallops. Plus, the patio is heated so that it can be enjoyed at all hours year-round. 

Things to Do

La Cumbre Golf and Country Club is a distinguished social club that is imbued with all the charm that the American Riviera has to offer. With a clubhouse designed by notorious Santa Barbara architect George Washington Smith and an eighteen-hole golf course created by Captain George Thomas, La Cumbre Golf and Country Club was integral to Hope Ranch’s history and continues to bring people together today. Laguna Blanca Lake is surrounded by La Cumbre Golf Course and Country Club, and it lends its name to one of the Santa Barbara area’s most esteemed private schools, Laguna Blanca School. This basin is a focal point of the golf course and provides a beautiful challenge to the course. Community members enjoy access to the club’s course, six championship tennis courts, and a stunning restaurant.


Some of Santa Barbara County’s most prestigious schools can be found in this intimate enclave. A few of Hope Ranch’s most notable educational facilities include: 

  • Laguna Blanca School, K-12
  • Vieja Valley Elementary School, K-6
  • Hope Elementary School, K-6
