Rancho Santa Fe CovenantTrying to see homes in the Rancho Santa Fe Covenant can be a real challenge.

Most of these lovely estates sit far back from the winding roads, and are shielded by native and tropical landscaping. If the property is located in the Rancho Santa Fe Covenant, real estate signs are not allowed. Nor are street lights, open house signs, or mailboxes. If a Realtor holds an open house, the only outward sign of any real estate activity might be a single balloon floating near the driveway.

The retrieval of mail is done at the Village Post Office, which sometimes becomes a casual social event where neighbors and friends meet and catch up with life events. A morning stroll from that Post Office might take one to the nearby Library, or the Garden Club, or perhaps the Inn at Rancho Santa Fe for a cup of coffee or glass of lemonade. Heading back home, one might pass friends on horseback, riding past the historic Golf Club.

With a population of less than 3500, this elite Rancho Santa Fe community in coastal San Diego offers a private lifestyle where neighbors aren’t elbowing one another, yet might pass each other on extensive horse trails or one of its lovely golf courses.

If you wish to join the Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club, though, you must live inside the Rancho Santa Fe Covenant and its geographically set boundaries.
