Overview

Property Details

Updated: Jun 11, 2014
1 bed, 2 bath with beautiful views and gardens

Get a taste of Santa Barbara living at this luxury retreat. One bedroom, two baths with a gourmet kitchen, elegant furnishings, private patios, and views from every room. This home is close to downtown restaurants, but in the privacy of a canyon. Hear historic mission bells, see resident deer, and relax and recharge your life. Take an afternoon to visit our superior wine country, then come back and cuddle by the living room fireplace, enjoy the ocean views at sunset, and stroll the lavish gardens. The Stonehouse is on the property of an owner-occupied historic Santa Barbara adobe, however it is completely private, with separate drive and entry, and use of the gardens. This property can sleep two people comfortably with a king bed in the bedroom, while the sleeper sofa in an alcove can serve as an additional bed when needed.

Charming, Unique hideaway

  • 5 of 5
The photos of this cottage, while accurate, do not do it justice -- it's hard to imagine how this gorgeous round house actually fits together from 2 dimensional photos. This cottage is a gem! Beautifully constructed of stone, set on the edge of a canyon with a distant view of the city and ocean (and sunset!), it is both spacious and cozy and VERY romantic. The furnishings and decoration are classy and comfortable. The modern kitchen is well-equipped with good quality cookware, knives, dishes and glassware. The king bed has fine linens and is very comfortable with way more pillows than one would need. Two full bathrooms have eye-pleasing fixtures and showers big enough for two. There is a real wood-burning fireplace and plenty of wood, which came in handy once the weather cooled off post-Christmas. There's plenty of privacy. Lots of outdoor seating areas, to take advantage of the sun as it shines on different areas throughout the day.

One definitely has to have a car to rent this place, as it's up in the foothills, not anywhere near public transportation or shopping or anything, really -- that's part of the attraction. Yet, it's less than 10 minutes to the beach, shopping, downtown, the "Funk Zone" or the mountains.

The place was hard to find in the dark, but the management company gave us good directions. The management company was pretty responsive to our needs, including fixing internet issues over the holidays (but see below).

Just a couple of complaints: One: the management company misquoted the price (too low), on the basis of which we let other options go, and when we were ready to book, they gave us a higher price. Two: there was an infestation of tiny ants in the master bathroom, which we were told by the management company to keep at bay by spraying Windex -- it was a temporary fix, and left a bad smell. Three: it did take over a month, and a reminder email, to get our security deposit back.

All in all, I'd definitely go back, and recommend it to couples without children who want a unique cozy getaway.
