Rancho Santa Fe Reviews
Rancho Santa Fe is absolutely beautiful! The people are warm and friendly, and there is a great sense of community in the Covenant (the historic part of RSF) with many activities and traditions that bring everyone together. Residents have great appreciation for RSF's special history and support the outstanding R. Roger Rowe School (elementary and middle.) Most homes are on large lots so have great privacy, the weather is perfect (out of the fog belt but not really hot), and it's just 10 minutes to great beaches.
This area is nice, but it’s quite exclusive. It caters primarily to the wealthy, conservative, white, retired upper class of San Diego County. Unless you meet that criteria, you probably won’t be welcomed in this area.
Quiet, removed and sunny. This community east of the 5 freeway yet accessible enough for most commuters has everything you would want in a neighborhood/suburb. Friendly people, great community. Down side is the cost though. Rather prohibitive for people who are just starting out.
