Rancho Pescadero is an independent, non-corporate, labor of love. This is the story of how this remarkable place came to be.
When owner Lisa Harper opened the hotel in 2009 she did so after drawing her vision on a scrap of paper a mere 18 months earlier. Lisa had owned the beachfront property for years and one morning in 2008 at her home in Sonoma, she woke up with the urge to sketch what was to become the 28 room resort that exists today.
When Lisa first opened the doors she was lucky in that she found people who shared her vision of creating a simple yet sophisticated resort, one that would be comfortable and casual, and yet stylish and luxurious at the same time. Many of those first hires are still working here today. Another bonus was that many locals in the area have worked in the hospitality business further afield and working here was a way to bring their expertise home.
Whether you’re a couple taking a few days to get away, newlyweds, or a group of old friends catching up, they here at Rancho Pescadero make it their priority to see that you have a good time, and most importantly whatever your version of a good time looks like.

Ahh the joy of food. At Rancho Pescadero they are beyond fortunate. It is plainly – foodie heaven. You drive through basil and strawberry fields until they give way to the sand. And, there they are! Their slapping fresh fish comes out of the water just a few minutes away and is delivered daily. Their Garden Kitchen Restaurant is surrounded by their own organic gardens. If you’ve not been to Pescadero and Todos Santos before then you may not know that the region is one of the largest producers of organic produce in Mexico. So; what they do not grow themselves they can confidently source locally. They have found regional farms to procure their beef, lamb, chicken and pork from. It is a labor of love to bring to the Rancho responsibly grown, fresh items with which to create tasty, yummy delicious dishes and cocktails!
As they are fortunate to be located in a delicately balanced and beautiful locale, they recognize their green efforts are critical to the evolution of Pescadero and Todos Santos. All of the rooms are tied into a grey water system. The water used in showers and tooth brushing and our laundry provide irrigation for many of the plants on the property. All of the water in the rooms is filtered with a particle filter and a UV filter. The water in the restaurants and bars are triple filtered – adding a reverse osmosis system. Their water comes from a underground aquifer that flows from the rains in the Sierra Laguna mountains. Even though it doesn’t rain near the beach very often, it rains more often in the mountains and that keeps the water flowing. In order to conserve precious water: they change towels every day and sheets every other day unless otherwise requested.
They offset the energy used for our pool pumps and heaters with solar power.
They recycle paper, plastic and glass and hand separate all refuse into these categories.
They try not to use too many plastic water bottles and have large containers of filtered water located outside of all rooms to refill water pitchers that are in the guest rooms. They also have large water dispensers at all pools and restaurants to cut down on the use of plastic bottles of water.
All food grown on-site is done using organic techniques.
Scraps from the kitchen are used in the garden and given to local people for raising pigs and chickens. They use organic fertilizers (chicken poop from non-steroid chickens) instead of chemical fertilizers.
They also support local efforts for the Turtle Rescue, beach clean-up, spay & neuter clinics, local lifeguards and youth scholarship programs.
