  • Absolutely beautiful place to visit. The owners are very attentive to the plants and excited to talk to you about them should you have any questions.
  • The most diverse and interesting variety of orchids on the west coast. Great value and selection.
  • A real hidden gem most locals don't know about. Worth the drive to Goleta. Such a lovely place to spend an hour or three! So many amazing orchids ranging from tiny to big and showy. So much variety here, it boggles the mind. The wonderful ocean breezes there make this a little piece of paradise even more serene and inviting.
  • I am a long time customer and have sent many people to Santa Barbara Orchid Estates over the years. I have received nothing but exemplary service and incredible product. All of my friends have had similar experiences. I have never received a negative comment. They ship to me frequently and the product arrives in incredible shape and extremely well packaged. I've never had any damage or loss. I would recommend this business to anyone. I have no financial or familial connection, just reporting on an excellent business. he will be pleased.
