Custom creekside home in beautiful natural setting: Creekside Haven


Property Details

Updated: May 22, 2015
house, 2000 sq. ft., 3 bedrooms, Sleeps 7, 2 bathrooms

If your ideal vacation home is one that is folded into the landscape, one that allows you to be in tune with nature without having to worry about poison oak, then you can't do much better than Creekside Haven, a home that is so much a part of it's surroundings that the rocks in the stone fireplace actually come from the creek that runs alongside the house.

Elevated among the ferns and surrounded by tall oaks, this creekside home provides a welcome respite from the bustle of daily life and the crowded neighborhoods of the waterfront district. Though you’ll feel a world apart, this gorgeous, custom-designed, radial home is centrally located, with the downtown area only two miles away and the Santa Barbara Mission and Rose Gardens within easy walking distance. A nature lover’s dream, this unique property is located just minutes from Santa Barbara’s most popular hiking trails. For those looking for something more than a cookie cutter vacation rental, this beautiful one-acre property is a paradise found.

With 2000 square feet of living space and multiple outdoor seating areas, this home is well suited for small families and couples traveling together. The great room downstairs features plush sofas and armchairs centered around a huge stone fireplace, creating a comfortable area for enjoying a glass of wine in the evening or watching a movie at night. The guest bedroom downstairs features patio doors leading out to the deck and spa in the backyard. A beautiful spiral staircase (with rope handrails) leads up to a small landing with a double futon that precedes the master bedroom, which features a private deck with lovely creek views. A separate studio offers a large custom desk in the entry and a daybed for extra guests. Enjoy your escape to Santa Barbara in this exquisite home and you’ll find yourself eagerly planning your return to our Creekside Haven.

Wonderful, Serene, Convenient Location!

We decided to rent this wonderful house instead of booking two hotel rooms to celebrate our father's 90th Birthday. It allowed the three of us plenty of space and privacy but also spacious common areas to spend time together as a family. Wonderful private grounds and the hot tub was a great bonus! Believe the pictures! We found this to be an excellent base location to explore Santa Barbara and the surrounding wine country. Downtown was a quick ten minute drive; so much to see and do. Invited Home/Home Away was great to deal with, giving us detailed check-in information and instructions and answering all our questions. We loved the home and the peaceful, natural setting.

We wintered for the second year in this amazing property. The setting is peaceful and wonderful, the common spaces are inviting and spacious. The architectural design unique. The bathrooms are small, particularly the downstairs guest bath. I can't for the life of me figure out why there are no bath facilities (not even a porta- potty) in the separate casita. In the lower hills above the Mission- make sure that's where you want to be.

Well-appointed home in a gorgeous setting

Our five-member family had a wonderful Thanksgiving stay at Creekside Haven. The location was both convenient and private. When you sit on the expansive deck, overlooking the ferns and oaks (and, when there's no drought, the rushing creek), you feel so secluded that you'd never guess State Street was only a few minutes away. The house was architecturally interesting, and its open floor plan was very well set up for a family. The kitchen was unusually well-equipped: a boon for a multi-course holiday meal. The hot tub was fun. I couldn't imagine a more perfect choice for our family than this well-designed, well-appointed, and distinctly non-cookie-cutterish home.
