The Sunshine Ranch was so interesting! If you love animals and want to learn about ranch life or farm life this is the place. They're definitely built around community. Luba, our host was so kind and one of the ranch volunteers Leiloni was such a wealth of information and a great tour guide around the farm. We got to pet the animals and hang with all the free range everything!

Great spots under some extra coverage. Literally, every animal on the ranch is a delight!Free range and hungry for grass!I had some great conversations with a nice couple from Germany on this lovely porch! The Ranch lights up at night and is so warm.

My boyfriend and I stayed here’s one night in a tent and it was a pleasant expierence. Luba was a great host! Funny ears, the dog, was also very friendly and hung out at the bonfire with us. Keep in mind, this is a family friendly place and it is not very secluded. We were next to young babies and it was very cold at night so pack properly. Overall a good expierence here!

Animals Wonderland!! You will enjoy the hospitality of Luba , Charlie ( the Turkey ), Carlos and Devitt . We spent 2 nights at the ranch and really enjoyed feeding the animals and the ranch . We went to Blue Spring and Rock spring . The ranch is 15 mins away from downtown Sanford which has many restaurants. Our 2nd night, our host set up bonfire ;) . We love it!!

Luba and Devitt were wonderful hosts! They greeted us upon arrival, gave us a tour of the property and introduced us to the animals. Luba was kind enough to offer recommendations for springs to travel to when we were looking to explore for the day. The spring she sent us to was wonderful and we were thankful for her help. Brian, the caretaker of the animals and property manager was kind and hospitable. He checked in with us a few times. This is a great stay for any animal lover! The animals are free to roam...we were greeted by a goat in front of our tent one evening and a few came to visit while we were cooking dinner! Overall, we had a wonderful experience and would love to return.

We ended up at SunShine Ranch because nearby state park sites were all booked. I’m so happy we did because we had a truly unique experience at the ranch. Luba and Devitt were excellent hosts and gave us great advice on what to do nearby. We had a wide range of places to choose from depending on how much privacy we wanted. We chose a spot in the back of the property, far from the main circle, near a pond. It was secluded enough, but still an easy stroll to the common areas. We enjoyed being close to the animals and witnessing a bit of the ranch life, especially at feeding time and appreciated the bathing facilities and communal kitchen, equipped with everything needed to store and prepare meals. The ranch was within a 15 minute drive from Blue Springs State Park which was our reason for visiting. Unfortunately, it was a rainy day so we couldn’t take advantage of the bike trail one can also use to access the park, but we would have loved to using the bikes available for people staying at the ranch! SunShine Ranch is a great place to get closer to nature without being too far out of the way!
