A look behind the Hollister Ranch gatehouse...

Hollister Ranch offers a rare opportunity for privacy and seclusion on the California coast. As the coast becomes increasingly crowded, the natural beauty and unspoiled beaches of The Ranch stand out. The Ranch's owners value and preserve the classic California beach lifestyle, with the ability to enjoy the beach with only family and friends, perfect waves for surfing, reefs for fishing or diving, and private sandy coves and points to escape the crowds. The Ranch beaches are unique, un-crowded, and truly special. It's a place where you can connect with nature and enjoy the coastal life to the fullest!

"Where California still is as it once was."—Rick. This is the California that so many people have heard of but few have had the privilege of experiencing. But at Hollister Ranch, you can be one of those few to bask in the glory of this natural wonder. The time is now to see for yourself the last vestiges of the California ideal and create memories that will last a lifetime.

As you stand before the splendor of Hollister Ranch, you cannot help but be transported to a bygone era. A time when California was a place of unspoiled beauty, where the hills were covered in sagebrush, the roads were dirt, and the groves were filled with eucalyptus. The small, cold kelpy waves crashing upon the points and shore, the crisp offshore winds, and the fiery red sunsets setting in a Western sea all combine to create a truly special place in California.
