For a rustic destination with a coastal breeze, there is Leo Carrillo Ranch. It is a historic hacienda-style property with Spanish desert charm and brilliant peacocks that call Leo Carrillo Ranch home. The Old Rancho, a historic private estate in North County offers a similar Spanish essence to our Leo Carrillo venue, with Secret Garden feel. Finally, for a breathtaking waterfront view, there is Harbor View Loft. Located on beautiful Harbor Island, our stunning venue provides a 360-degree view of San Diego's Harbor, Coronado Bridge, Marina, and City Lights.
