Connectivity and rare beauty – Islay Hill embodies them both as the ninth in an ancient string of volcanic peaks stretching across California’s Central Coast. Once part of the 31,000 acres Corral de Piedra land grant, Islay Hill overlooks La Lomita Ranch’s bed and breakfast, wedding and events venue, inviting visitors to connect with its roots.
Originally a farm that spanned 700 acres, La Lomita Ranch was first developed by Princess Marieta and Prince Zourab. Hailing from the Spanish island of Mallorca, the enchanting Marieta earned international acclaim for breeding Arabian horses here at La Lomita Ranch.
It was her, Princess Marieta, who sparked the flame of California Romantica at La Lomita Ranch. Exquisitely beautiful with an understated elegance, her luminous spirit is embodied throughout the property, charming guests with a promise of romance and the echo of nostalgia.
Decades later, La Lomita Ranch is a canvas for couples from around the globe to paint new memories. Each custom crafted room exudes the elegance of California Romantica—colorful Talavera tiles accent the architecture indoors while vibrant gardens brighten the surrounding grounds. Every space is a rare masterpiece with a charm all its own, a styled tribute to our Spanish founders.
In a lush setting where love grows wild, begin your legacy at La Lomita Ranch.
