History of Seven Oaks Ranch
Greg and Susan Reaume retired from occupations in the Los Angeles area approximately five years ago. Greg was an attorney/building contractor and Susan an executive medical secretary. They are avid boaters and have cruised on their 53″ motor sailing ketch, “Tavana”, located in Long Beach, California, throughout the gold coast of Mexico and the Baja, Sea of Cortez. Summer months often find them, in Southern California waters, sailing between the Channel Islands, Catalina Island, and down the coast to San Diego.
Currently they reside in Central California on Seven Oaks Ranch. The central coast has captured their hearts and they now spend a lot of their time improving the ranch property. Their love of the area has nurtured a desire to share their wonderful ranch with others while developing new friendships. Hence, the vacation home rental idea was conceived.
Having first acquired the interest in the ranch over 20 years ago, it has always been their plan to create a compound for their family. The vacation home rental idea seemed the perfect solution–creating a place where the extended family could congregate on holidays and reunions, while simultaneously generating some income to service and maintain the property. Since Greg and Susan love meeting new people and establishing new friendships, vacation rentals became the perfect vehicle.
The VRBO business is just now getting underway. The initial guests enjoyed the Great Oak House in the first two weeks of June, and gave “A+” reviews in spite of the fact that some things were not finished.
An outdoor jacuzzi, horse shoe pits, a bocci ball court, and miscellaneous landscaping is currently underway at the Great Oak House. Four RV spaces with water and power, four horse corrals and extensive 3-rail white fencing adorning the ranch property is scheduled to be completed before the November 2010, the hi-rental season.
Why the Owner Chose Santa Margarita
Central California is, in our opinion, California’s best kept secret. Low density living in an incredibly clean, clear and green environment gives the area and the people a comfortable, secure feeling where stress and tension seem virtually non-existent. The area offers just about every type of life style experience and adventure all within about a 30-40 mile radius. Beaches, bays, lakes, mountains and streams along with great wine and horse country make San Luis Obispo a spectacular place to live or visit and vacation. We’ve traveled extensively and find this place to be among the top spots in the world.
Come and enjoy.
