Mission Gardens - Natural Treasure near the Mission

NOTE: We do not use the availability calendar on this website. Please visit Paradise Retreats website for availability information. Use the 'For Property Information and Availability Calendar' link located at the bottom of this page.

Located on a private lane in the historic old Mission District of Santa Barbara, this single level ranch style home reflects a pride of ownership and an appreciation of the beauty of nature that surrounds it. With proximity to the grand neighborhoods of the upper east, the Santa Barbara Mission, and downtown, the location is ideal. Comfortably furnished with natural fabrics, colors and textures, it presents a serene and welcoming environment in a charming and quiet neighborhood.

The home includes two Master Suites, each with French doors leading to the central back patio and the lush landscaping of the backyard. The West Suite has a king-size bed and full bath featuring a soaking tub and walk-in shower. The East Suite, with king-size bed, includes a comfortable seating area in front of the flat screen TV. The addition of an outside door adds convenient access to both the front and back yards.

A 3rd guest bedroom facing the front yard garden is spacious and handsome with a coffer ceiling and curved windows providing an abundance of light. A handsome Mission-style bookcase holds an extensive collection of books ranging from decorating and gardening to local history, art and architecture.

A nearby hall bathroom is shared by this bedroom and the 4th bedroom, which has 2 twin beds, mirrored closet doors, and a flat screen TV. The Living Room is decorated in warm natural tones and features a stone fireplace. Large windows facing the front yard flood the room with light, and French doors lead to the central backyard patio as well. The Dining Room has seating for 6-8 and is conveniently located between the Living Room and Kitchen. Large sliding doors open to create an 'indoor-outdoor' experience that seamlessly incorporates the colorful gardens and outdoor spaces.

A bright and efficient Kitchen includes an abundance of counter space and a generous central island with guest seating. Professional appliances, like a Dynasty 4-burner stove and Dacor double ovens, add to the smart design. With the backyard gardens filled with culinary treasures available for the taking, clever cooks can effortlessly create healthy California-style cuisine.

A wonderful outdoor experience is guaranteed with dining and lounging options on the central patio. The large outdoor spa tub is privately tucked away behind hedges, and a nearby fountain adds to the tranquil ambiance. A whimsical shady outdoor picnic area hidden under tall trees turns magical after dark with twinkle lights and great landscape lighting. Another sitting area in the center of a colorful flower and vegetable garden offers a great spot for an afternoon cat nap or quiet conversation. The owners' love of organic gardening is evident in this canyon retreat, and guests can help themselves to fresh herbs, roses, fruit, avocados, blueberries and vegetables when in season. This south facing back yard provides sunshine all day long!

Daily, the Mission bells are a friendly reminder to take the short creek-side stroll to the Santa Barbara Mission and Rose Gardens, stopping along the way at the Museum of Natural History. Downtown shopping is an easy 5 minute drive. The nearby hiking trails offer a variety of experiences from those that will challenge the seasoned athlete, to those that provide a leisurely pace for the casual bird watcher.

This ideal property will appeal to anyone who seeks a quiet refuge from their busy everyday life. With its obvious attention to every detail, Mission Gardens promises to be a favorite choice for a romantic getaway, a writer's retreat, or a memorable family vacation. Surrounded by nature and well-kept gardens, this is truly the perfect place to stop, relax, and smell the roses.

Ideal Location

Review submitted: July 27, 2014   Date of arrival: July 21, 2014

(Transcribed from guestbook at the property)

Four generations of our family stayed at the beautiful Mission Gardens. We were here to marry our daughter at Our Lady of Sorrows Church with a gorgeous reception at the University Club of Santa Barbara. The house was perfectly suited and its location was ideal for all our activities--just minutes away from everything! The neighbors were friendly, the grounds were an amazing adventure, the hot tub a treat for relaxation after exhausting, busy days. Thank you so much for making our beautiful wedding trip so much more comfortable.
