It's a little bit of a drive, but well worth it to see the countless number of beautiful orchids!! we were there 2 weeks before the orchid festival so many of them were in bloom. it is a must-see if you love orchids!

Lovely orchids for miles! A literal feast for the eyes. You can buy plants or cut orchids or just revel in the beauty. Always a fun place to visit and even more so during the annual Orchid Show time.

It was my birthday and the kids and grand kids stopped her and got me a orchid as a surprise. It is awesome and very healthy and beautiful.

The Orchid Estate sits near More Mesa and is open for visitors. They've been hybridizing and growing orchids for year; the place is teeming with orchids. It is an explosion of color and kind, and a fun place to walk around. The staff are friendly,...More

I like orchids..... maybe not passionate about them.....but if I lived nearby Santa Barbara Orchid Estate, it could become an addiction. Prices are quite reasonable for some beautiful specimens, starting around $25 and going way up for rare, one-of-a-kind plants. It's worth a shopping trip........More

The most amazing collection and variety of orchids available to the public. It was fun just walking through it and photographing the flowers. We bought a very special orchid and had it shipped home. If you like orchids, don't miss this place!

Based on previous reviews I thought this would be something like a botanical garden. But when we arrived the owner seemed frustrated with us because we were just there to look and not buy. Most areas had signs that said "no admittance". We left after...More

Unfortunately, we visited the estate when barely anything was in bloom. However, the orchids we did see were really incredible. We expected the entire estate, though, to be better cared for. It seems disorganized and downtrodden. If someone spiffed-up the place a bit, I think...More
