Can't stop thinking about our vacation!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this wonderful home and would love to call it ours. We had some travel issues getting in and so our timing got thrown off by several hours, but the caretaker graciously met us very late and welcomed us to the property and answered any questions we had. It was magical to wake up in the morning and see just what kind of place was ours for the next few days. The views in every direction are gorgeous and the landscaping is so tasteful--we just couldn't walk around without taking a picture of something. The house is very comfortable, clean, spacious and quiet. The birds come to the fountain in the morning and the sun sets on the flowers and stonework in a new and artful way each day. We enjoyed the pool and especially took advantage of the hot tub with the full moon. The view of the city at night competes with the view of the ocean and the islands in the day. Particulars: the kitchen is well-equipped, the pool house is equally so, the beds are comfortable, and bathrooms are clean and plentiful. The drive up to the house lets you know you are someplace special and it's nice to be able to hike right out of the front door. The drive down to amenities --area grocers, shopping, good breakfast spots--is quick and scenic and the drive into town is pretty painless. It was nice to go to the beach and take in that scene or walk the shops on State Street but even nicer to come home to peace and quiet. We wouldn't hesitate to book this home again or recommend it to anyone.

Stunning Property

  • 5 of 5
We live in Southern Calif, and wanted a place within driving distance, as we were meeting friends from east coast. This place is absolutely stunning, views to die for, amazing pool, cabana, top of the line appliances, and soooo relaxing but within 10 minute drive to downtown Santa Barbara. Hiking and biking from the ranch, great for couples or families. The kitchen is very well appointed, lots of basics spices, etc.., in the kitchen. We were blown away by the architecture and landscaping, and the outdoor entertaining spaces. You will not be disappointed.

Our family gives this property 10 stars! !

  • 5 of 5
A family vacation within driving distance from our home in Newport Beach was our goal since traveling long distances with our two year old grandson could be challenging. This property was beyond all our expectations in all aspects...the views, the layout of the house and all high-end touches could be found throughout the home. The views were beyond amazing, and we all felt at home immediately upon entering the luxurious and tastefully decorated home. We brought our three small dogs, and there was even a dog bed provided! If you are a cook, you will not be lacking for any kitchen utensils, dishes and beautiful serving dishes.
We hardly left the property since we had all we needed here. There were even toys, books and games for all ages to enjoy. Greg, a most helpful manager, met us at the property and gave us a tour and he was always available to answer any questions we had. The pool and pool cabana were incredible...even has a high-end comfortable murphy bed that lowers with the switch of a remote! We had guests that stayed in the pool cabana that had a full bathroom, kitchen, seating areas, dining room table, washer/dryer, large screen TV and beautiful window seats that could be converted to single beds. The salt water pool and spa were heated and we used this on a daily basis as we looked out enjoying the 360 Want to sit out on a patio, not a problem, many patios and stone picnic tables are available throughout the property. As you can tell, we all had the best time and will definitely stay here again.

The pictures don't give this lovely estate justice. Everything is immaculate and the views are spectacular. The property manager is beyond helpful. The only place to stay in Santa Barbara

The Best Vacation Yet

  • 5 of 5
We met in Santa Barbara with out-of-state family for a long weekend trip, and this was the perfect place for our special vacation. From the youngest to the oldest, each family member LOVED this place and wasn't ready leave. This place provides something everyone will love, whether it be the pool, hiking, relaxing in front of a nice television, or grilling out steak for the family to enjoy. I agree with the other reviewer - the photos don't do the place justice. I think we were all a little stunned after our tour of the home! The landscaping is top-notch, and it's plain to see this place was built with a lot of thought. I honestly loved being here more than I did in town! I would recommend at least a five night stay to take it all in! When we did venture into town, our family enjoyed eating at Jane and Anderson's. We felt very privileged to stay here and hope it wasn't our last visit.

This is by far one of the nicest places I have ever stayed. After traveling the world and staying in numerous 5-star properties this one tops the list. Sitting atop the hills of Santa Barbara, the home provides incredible views of downtown Santa Barbara, the Pacific ocean and the evening sunset. From lounging poolside, to afternoon croquet on the lower lawn, to an evening bbq with wine on the outdoor terrace the photos simply don't do this property justice. The interior is classically furnished and the appliances and fixtures are all top of the line. The bedrooms are comfortable, cool, and quiet and the morning light is stunning. The pool house cabana provides a nice escape from the sun and the hiking trails are great for a morning workout. Everything you need has been provided and no detail has been overlooked. You will feel at home the moment you arrive. I fear my only complaint is I won't be back soon enough!
