Spanish Mission Style Home with Pool - Away from Coastal Fog

Spanish Mission Style Home with Pool - Away from Coastal Fog


Property Details

Updated: May 23, 2015
House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)


This is a peaceful Spanish Mission style home on a spectacular site with a large, private pool in the foothills of Santa Barbara. It has magnificent views, wonderful sunsets, and a tropical landscape that gives an exotic resort feeling.

The property is at the end of a private road with no through traffic.

This is a family home of English design professionals. With its tree house, pool and swings it is an ideal place for families.

However because of the residential neighborhood the property it is not suitable for loud groups wanting to party.

Mission Santa Barbara is only one and one-half miles away. It is less than ten minutes from downtown Santa Barbara which is a very sophisticated town in the Spanish Colonial style; a beautiful town to walk in. There are theaters, many cinemas, and the type of restaurants and shops one usually finds only in large international cities.

This artistic house is light, open, and comfortable. The combined kitchen/dining room is large, 26 feet x 16 feet. The adjacent poolside dining area is an ideal place to watch the sunsets or enjoy lunch sitting in swimsuits in the warm sunshine. The large living room, 20 feet x 25 feet, has a wood burning fireplace and wonderful mountain views. There is a home office and wireless internet. No smoking and no pets, please.

The Santa Barbara Botanic Gardens are within walking distance, as are many hiking trails.

We had such a relaxing, restful time. Your home is amazing. We loved it and Patricia was thrilled with everything especially after she found the knife sharpener!

Spanish Mission Style Home W/Pool-Fantastic Experience!!!!

  • 5 of 5
Three couples stayed at this amazingly beautiful home and property. The hosts were gracious, amenable and accessible when needed. The pool was great and the aesthetics and comfort of the home was fantastic.
We all strongly recommend this property and would definitely consider staying there again in a heartbeat.
A great time was had by all.

Perfect Oasis in Santa Barbara!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay here could not be more perfect! The house oozes of Spanish charm and was more than enough space for our group of 8 ladies. The property is gorgeous and we loved exploring every inch of it. The views are incredible; everything was just as pictured. We enjoyed using their great sized pool and huge kitchen to cook our meals in.

For our convenience, we took taxis down to the town and Lyfts back. One-way fare was about $25. Be sure to keep the directions that the owner Hilary provides with you, as it is a bit tricky to find your way to the house.

Hilary and her husband Michael live in the cottage across the driveway and were extremely friendly and Michael would help us cover the pool each night. The booking process was very smooth and rates were more than reasonable. I would definitely stay here again.

Great Get-away!

  • 5 of 5
this was a fantastic spot for a private - but close to everything - location in the hills above Santa Barbara. The description is accurate - the house is charming and quirky. It has everything you could want in terms of amenities - pool, views, seclusion. There were ten of us enjoying a girls' weekend and we had plenty of room. It was relaxing, yet some good work-out hikes are close-by. We coupled our stay with Yoga on the Beach and a wine tour. It couldn't have been better. The owners are nearby, in the event of any questions. You wil need your GPS/mobile app to find the place, but once you do, you won't have any trouble. Defintely a 5-star!

It is with some apprehension that I write this review. I'm not sure it's a good idea to bring too much attention to this beautiful, tranquil haven. Sigh, but alas.... Our family of 6 vacationed here and it seemed tailor-made to our specifications:
1. Beautiful Surroundings
2. Squeeky Clean and Comfortable
3. Plenty of Privacy
4. A Cool, Refreshing Pool
5. Spectacular Sunsets.
It had all of the above, plus the art and decor within the home was amazing. Our every need was anticipated and Hilary was extremely gracious and professional. My favorite bits were: morning walks down to visit the horses, evening swims, preparing meals in the large kitchen and sipping wine once the dishes were done. We had such a lovely time in this "classic" Santa Barbara home. Thanks for everything Hilary, we will return....soon, i hope.

Mountain Shangri-la

  • 5 of 5
All four of us, known as the "Bandon Brother Boys," due to our annual golfing treks give the property our highest marks and accolades. The home's "rusticity" charmingly blends into the matchless resort-like setting. With our leverage of having four "buying units," so to speak, our cost was far less on a nightly basis than a "boxy sheet-rocked" small hotel room. It is so spacious inside and out that we luxuriated in and capitalized upon the total environment. The owners were effervescent, polite, responsive, and ultra accommodating. They did everything they said they would. We are unequivocally appreciative of having had the opportunity to vacation in "Shangri-la!
