Property Details

Updated: Mar 31, 2015
House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

During Summer months - weekly stay is recommended.

This amazing home was built with the 360 degree view in mind. Walk out on the veranda in the morning, with a hot coffee and paper, and you will catch the early morning animals beginning to stir. Hummingbirds, deer, eagles, coyotes, etc. are just some of the wildlife all around. Relax in a soothing spa and enjoy peacefulness and tranquility with mountains and nature surrounding you.

With 1.6 very private acres, beautiful landscaping, and huge grass areas perfect for croquet or badmitton, it's hard to imagine downtown Santa Barbara only 2 miles away. At night, enjoy a fire in one of the two outdoor fire places either next to the jacuzzi or outdoor dining area and kitchen. Or toast up some 'smores around the huge firepit and stargaze at the black sky unobstructed by city lights. Let yourself go and feel a lifetime away.

Go inside and open some of the 10 french doors and unite the indoors and out. Every room in this incredible property has amazing views. The home is tastefully decorated in similar motifs as the Biltmore hotel. Huge vaulted celings throughout, profesional grade appliances, slate kitchen counter tops, tumbled marble bathrooms, fireplaces in master suite and great room, high quality linens as well as high speed wireless internet make this home first class. The newly added game room includes ping pong, air hockey, piano, etc. Children can enjoy the trampoline and swing set, scooters, games and toys. Our pet Turkey and his five best friend chickens are friendly and fun. Enjoy fresh eggs every morning for breakfast. No care is needed for them. Our gardner cares for them weekly. There truly is something for everyone!

This is a once in a lifetime place, with access to everything you need for a memorable visit. Hiking and world-class cycling trails are within a mile of the property. Watch paragliders and hang-gliders land in the adjacent meadow. Enjoy a horseback or mountain bike ride in the 200 acre park across the street. Walk only steps to tennis courts. For a small fee, use of our private tennis club with pool, jacuzzi, work out classes and machines can be arranged. The Santa Barbara Tennis Club is only one mile away.

Pristine beaches and downtown shopping only 2 miles away. Nestled between Montecito and Santa Barbara, it is the perfect location to experience the shopping, restaraunts, beaches, wildlife, sporting activities, and tranquility the entire area has to offer. Experiance the FULL Santa Barbara lifestyle in this amazing home.

This house is perfect for entertaining and relaxing with the feeling of seclusion yet close to everything.

We do not allow weddings or parties of any sort. Only a maximum of 8 guests on the property at any time.

We love hiking, biking, traveling, and all kinds of sports. Snow skiing and snow boarding fill many Winter days. Summer days, we spend a lot of time at our Lake house on Lake Nacimiento, wake boarding and water skiing!

Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5
This house was like being in a villa in Tuscany - The views were breathtaking - mountains of Santa Barbara. There were many different places to sit outside and for my grandchildren to play. The photos online were accurate but in person the setting is breathtaking. The owner was easy and a delight to work with and very generous with her children's dolls/toys/games and equipment. The chickens added to our fun - AM egg retrieval for breakfast. We went to nearby wineries, berry picking, beaches, farmer's markets, the carousel. I never wanted to leave this very comfortable beautiful family home.

This was our first time using VRBO for a vacation and we couldn't be happier with our choice. The home is absolutely gorgeous, the location was perfect , and the views were unreal! The rooms were perfect for our family as we were traveling with two teen girls and a teen boy. There was something for everyone to do, from playing air hockey and ping pong, to shopping on State St. and going to the beach, to just sitting outside and taking in that phenomenal view. We hiked some lovely trails at Parma Park which was just down the road, and also made a quick trip to the zoo, about a 10 minute drive. My husband and I were able to take an evening away and go about 2 miles to the El Encanto Hotel and sit outside and have cocktails while looking at the lovely ocean. It is very close to everything! The house was spotless when we arrived and Jill was so very helpful throughout the process, always quick to answer a question as it arose. I would highly recommend this property to any family traveling to Santa Barbara. My kids are saying that it has been our best vacation in years! I am missing it tremendously.....

A slice of Tuscany in Santa Barbara

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we walked in to this beautiful home we were surrounded by the beauty of the decor, landscaping and the extremely breathtaking views of the mountains in the distance. It was the perfect place for a get away to relax and take in nature. Every morning we ventured to the trail head just at the bottom of the road for a cool morning hike into the mountains. The views from the top of that trail looked out onto the Pacific Ocean. Stunning.

The house is centrally located and a quick drive to the Santa Barbara Mission proved to be another wonderful experience followed by wine tasting in Los Olivos - even the cool temperatures did not hamper our trip. That night we made dinner at home, enjoyed wine, good food and friendship in the comforts of your home. I loved the dining table! I have to admit - there were so many rose blossoms that I cut a full bouquet to take home with me for a nice dried flower arrangement. We will return - like I said, it was a slice of Tuscany in Santa Barbara.

From the Owner

We love the location of our home. It feels as if it is in a serene Oasis far from the hustle and bustle of city life, yet it is close (2 miles) to downtown with restaurants, shopping, and beaches. We love to hike. Many hiking trails are a stones throw away! World class biking, running, and walking outside the front door.

From the Owner

There is Santa Barbara's raw natural beauty as far as the eye can see. Viewing all kinds of wildlife is amazing. We are visited regularly by deer, bunnies, and distant howls of coyotes. Bird watching over the canyon is spectacular. Hawks, Eagles, Owls, and even para gliders are a common experience.
