The living area looks through a wall of glass to the decks, the 40 by 12' infinity pool, the city and ocean/island views beyond. At night, the lights of Santa Barbara make a wonderful back drop. The master bedroom and bath share the same view. Oaks and palms, amid the lush landscape, make this property very private. Hot and cold outdoor shower, 4 42' flatscreen televisions, stereo with I-pod connection, Wi-Fi internet connection, and two car garage as well. This is a nicely maintained property. 80% Rental Guest return for the past 2 years

The Infinity Pool and Spa: are Salt Water rather that clorine treated, which means the water is much easier on your skin and eyes. It does not dry the skin like clorine. The pool is 40 by 12, is 3' deep in the shallow end and 8' deep in the deep end. The water stays at the infinity edge while swimming, as you watch the Santa Barbara Harbor and Marina, and the coastal Islands in the distance. At sunset, the sun goes right into the Pacific Ocean. The spa seats 6, and has 16 jets. Its great under the stars, or as the sunsets. Pool and spa are heated with a new, Efficient Gas Heating system. The pool faces directly south, so gets sun Morning to Sunset, and gets the direct sun all day long. This pool is right out of a Magazine cover. The 60 miles of coastline, and the City of Santa Barbara Below is Stunning. The views just get better after dark. The lights of the city, over the illuminated pool and spa, as well as white Cristmas Lights in the trees above, make this home Classic California

Located on the lower part of the property are 3 Orange Trees, One Grapefruit, and one Avacato Tree, and most of the year, you can enjoy fresh oranges or grapefuits, or juice in the mornings. The avacato tree is old, and not predictable, but when it does produce, the fresh avacatos are great. Please use caution while picking as you can damage the trees, and yourself with the sharp branches..

This home is located on a hillside above Santa Barbara, at the end of a quiet and private street in Mission Canyon. Houses along the street range from multimillion dollar view homes to funky 60's california ex hippie retreats. Its classic Santa Barbara. At the very end of the lane, you will find a long driveway down a hill to this private and wooded property. The house and property are not visable from the street or any where for that matter. There is parking for 3 cars, including the garage.Once you are here, you feel miles away, but are minutes to everything.

The lower part of the property is covered with 100 year old oak trees, paths that wind in the shade down a hillside, to a lower flat area. There are many trees overhead, making this area private and almost totally shaded most days. Its green in the winter and spring, and browns up in the summer and fall. A nice little get away right on the property.

This place is fantastic. No, it’s perfect. Perfect home, with modern upgrades, perfect pool with stunning views, and a perfect owner who goes out of his way to make certain that your stay in his home is, well, perfect. We’ve never rented from anyone who takes such great care and who honestly wants your stay to be the best and to feel at home. Terry and his staff were terrific to deal with and so helpful and friendly. I would rent again in an instant. As for the house, well it is exactly as presented. It is beautiful, well laid out and comfortable. The finishes are all modern and high-end. Then there is the pool. What can I say, it was perfect. My favorite part was quietly floating in the pool, with the ocean to all sides of me, the Mission and all of Santa Barbara below while the beautiful smells of the many citrus trees wafted up on the gentle breeze. Beyond perfect. You feel so secluded here but you are just moments from all the great things this area has to offer. It was just my wife and I this trip, but we would love to come back and bring our two adult children and their spouses with us. We will be back!

Owner's Response: This is a hard review to live up to. These guests are hard to beat. Once again, we are so fortunate to have such nice people to work with. The house has flaws, and is a California cottage from the 60's, but it does have its character and upgrades, and does sit on a great piece of property overlooking the city.
We sincerely hope all of you can come back on the next trip, and we will look forward to hearing from you in the meantime.

Just Do It!

  • 5 of 5
We are just wrapping up a week long yoga retreat with four friends that wanted a beautiful peaceful spot for yoga, wine and relaxation...when we stumbled across the owner Terry's house... we knew we had to book it...too often there are disappointments and the pictures oversell the actual property... Not here, Terry's house is everything, and more... A couple things that don't come out in the pictures are, the location is close to everything but sits high on top the mountain and at the end of the road.. A scary drive the first time, but the WOW of the view...worth it! The master suite is huge with a giant walk in closet, double sinks, and spectacular direct access to the pool. The layout of the house lives much bigger then the size. There are really 2 master suites. The kitchen is set up for conversing over dinner prep, morning coffee, or the dreaded work responsibilities..Terry is a host that makes the experience feel like your at a 5 star resort, offering suggestions for restaurants, shopping, and concerns over our comfort... The view in the pictures, 100% real!! don't think, just book it!

What a wonderful house to spend the week of New Year's 2015! The view from this house is spectacular. We made sure to be home every afternoon to watch the sunset from the pool. The house is nicely decorated and very clean. We enjoyed cooking in the beautiful kitchen and relaxing on the deck. The owner, Terry, and his staff are very responsive. I had a question about the TV remote and got a response immediately! I would highly recommend this house to friends or family wanting to visit Santa Barbara!

Amazing and perfect holidays in Santa Barbara

  • 5 of 5
We are Swiss and we spent 3 weeks holiday's in California. One week we spent in the nice Ocean Island view house in Santa Barbara. We all were excited about the house after we arrived. The location of the house is great. It's in quited road with a lot of privacy. The view over Santa Barbara and the ocean is fantastic. The house has a lot of charme, with furniture in modern and old style. The owner had a good taste for the decoration. The Kitchen is as well good equipped with all you can imagine. Another dream is the outside area, A nice deck with a quite big infinity pool and chairs to relax. The ambiance in the evening was really nice with turned on pool and tree light's. From the owner we got the permission to take the orange's from his garden. So every morning we collected orange's and we made freshly squeezed orange juice. Never had so nice orange juice in my life. So overall we all had a happy time in this nice house. Even the process to rent this house was a little strange to me, it worked everything fine and today I understand why the owner have so strict rules and terms.

Owner's Response: Another great family. These fine folks were from the Zurich Switzerland, and were fun to work with by phone and email. I guess the legal drinking age is 16 in Switzerland, and 21 in California. Our contract [ due to ins ] says no alcohol can be served to minors. They had kids in their late teens I guess, and did not understand the contract. It was no big deal.
Glad you loved the Oranges and Grapefruits. You hit them perfect as far as ripeness.
Thank you for being so easy and fun to work with, and for treating the place so well. Hope to have you again.!!!

Great House, Great Owners/Managers!

  • 5 of 5
This is the second time we've (my husband and I) rented this house (last time was 3 years ago), and we once again greatly enjoyed it!

The owners/managers are extremely hands on, and work hard to ensure an excellent rental experience from initial inquiry, to contracting, to the actual stay, to the post-stay wrap-up details.

They are quite particular about everything, which is great if you, as a renter, are also particular, which we are.

The house, including extensive grounds, and pool/spa area are all immaculately maintained and clean. The owners have good staff (e.g. housekeeper, pool staff, gardener) whom they've carefully developed strong relationships with that help greatly in this regard.

The kitchen is unusually well-equipped with respect to the kinds of things in the cupboards.

The view is stunning.

We had a fantastic time using this as our home base while visiting friends in Santa Barbara. Great house, great owner/managers, great city!

We will definitely try to rent this house again when we return to SB.

Thanks to the owners for your part in helping make our week in Santa Barbara fantastic!

Owner's Response: Thanks again to wonderful couple who were so nice to work with. We hope you can visit again in the future. These folks were not only easy to work with, but were fun as well. They left the place according to our housekeeper almost as nice as they found it. Thank you again. Hope to have in the future for visit # 3.

Stunning Views! Immaculate Hime!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week in late June/early July in this beautiful Mission Canyon home. The views were amazing and the pool spectacular. Our every expectation was met, inside and out, and in the convenient location with 180 degree views from the patio/pool area, including jaw dropping sunsets to the west, Mission Santa Barbara below and the ocean along the Santa Barbara beaches in the distance. Nothing that we wanted to do was more than 10-15 minutes away by car, including walking along State Street, the Tuesday night Farmers market, swimming in the ocean on East Beach, and great restaurants. We initially thought of a vacation in Italy or Hawaii, but didn't have the time. This was a great alternative, just a 5 hour drive from the Bay Area and you enter paradise. Our group comprised of 5 adults, two couples and one single, with the 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms suiting just perfectly. The house was immaculate, high end finishes in the kitchen and bathrooms, and comfortable seating inside and out. We barbecued several nights and ate out on the beautiful deck watching the sun set as the little white lights in the tree above set the perfect scene. My husband and I have rented many homes and apartments over the years, and this vacation home ranks up there with our other two favorites in the English countryside and New York City. The deposit was surprisingly steep, but once we got there we realized that this was a great protection for the owner to ensure appropriate care of this beautiful home by renters. Go and enjoy! You will create great memories and Facebook photos that will make all your friends jealous! The only downside was how much I missed the pool when I arrived back home.

Nearest Airport : Santa Barbara at 8 Miles Nearest Barpub : at 1 Miles Nearest Golf : at 1 Miles Nearest Train : at 3 Miles Nearest Motorway : at 3 Miles Nearest Restaurant : at 1 Miles Nearest Beach : at 3 Miles Car: necessary

This wonderful view home is located just 5 to 10 minutes from Trader Joes, Potterybarn, Vons, and lots of great Restaurants. Downtown and State St shops and Restaurants are close as well.

The Santa Barbara Harbor , Brophy Brothers, and the Marina are aprox. 10 minutes away as well.

Downtown Santa Barbara offers world class shopping, Dining, Theater, and almost anything you could ask for on Vacation or Buisness.

Within minutes of the property are some of the most amazing hiking trails to be found in California. 5,000 foot Mountain Peaks rise above Town, for some of the most dramatic views of the Pacific Ocean, Coastal Islands, from the Malibu Coast to Point Conception.

Summerland Beach is our favorite Beach walking spot. It is the best beach as far as Sand, and usually not crowded. The Town of Summerland has some good Resturaunts, and fun Antique shops.

Our Favorite place to eat and Have a Beer is Brophy Brothers at the Santa Barbara Marina. The boats, the Ocean, and the fishing boats, as well as the view of Santa Barbara and the Santa Ynez Mountains, are great from the Bar and outdoor Resturaunt..... Carlitos, on State St is another that we like. It has great outdoor dinning with a true Santa Barbara Feel.

After a day out and around the Santa Barbara area, you will always love returning to the peace and quiet,and the private retreat like feel that this home and property offer.

Sunset in the spa overlooking the City below, as the Lights become more visable with dusk. is a memory of Santa Barbara at its best.....

Sunrise and sunset can be highlights of the day, as the sun rises over the Santa Barbara Harbor, and sets into the pacific, with the Santa Ynez Mountains in the distance as well. It always seems to be a good time to have the BBQ ready to go for dinner as well.
