Welcome to The Ranch

What’s it like to live on a 23,000-acre ranch and community nestled between Cleveland National Forest and the historic town of San Juan Capistrano, five miles from the beach? It rocks.

Playing around, from sunup to sundown

There are tons of cool spots to stir up some fun in your new neighborhood, with play spaces built for all ages, including exclusive 55+ amenities for Gavilán® residents. Of course, we have the epic pools, fitness centers, community farms and parks locals love. But part of being connected to the land is enjoying truly unique outdoor experiences in your own back yard.

The Land

Homes with a 130-year history

Living on the last working ranch in Orange County is certainly a one-of-a-kind experience. That’s because the community vision has always been to protect and honor this amazing land. And with The Reserve at Rancho Mission Viejo, residents can enjoy 21,000 acres of nature right in their own backyards.

The Life

Unbridled fun lives here

Rollicking around the neighborhood is always encouraged at Rancho Mission Viejo. It’s called RanchLife, and it’s the community’s ever-growing list of ways to have fun, together. With weekly gatherings like trail hikes and resident-led gatherings, plus special 55+ events like Taco Nights and Burgers at the Bar as part of the incredible intergenerational lifestyle, it’s easy to see why #TheRanchRocks.
