Captain William Dana’s adobe was once known as the most hospitable place in California. His life filled with travel, adventure and style provided great inspiration for this unique resort-style community which is part of Dana’s original 37,997 acre Rancho. Later the area became a monarch butterfly habitat because of a eucalyptus tree plantation that inspired the name for the Monarch Club. Surrounded by seasonal butterfly flocks the community enjoys some of the most elegant hospitality on the Central Coast, featuring Adelina’s restaurant and market that was named after Captain Dana’s beloved daughter, the Sandalwood Spa named after the imported sandalwood that the Dana Rancho was famous for, and an unparalleled events center – truly in line with the festivities of the original Dana adobe.
