vacation rental description

The most amazing, totally-unobstructed views of the ocean and the beautiful Channel Islands! This is a romantic and gorgeous home--perfect for entertaining a few guests or just relaxing and forgetting all the stress of life! Beautiful, park-like 1.39 acres of vast lawns, fruit trees, trellis covered terrace overlooking the lush gardens and sea. Conveniently located on Cliff Drive, one minute to the Arroyo Burro State beach, a "local's favorite", this home is just five minutes to world-famous State Street and Santa Barbara Harbor, and 40 minutes to the wine country.

Completely private, this single level home offers a spacious living room with abundant picture windows, hardwood floors and fireplace, ocean view dining, gourmet kitchen, and three bedrooms, including a master with private bath. There are three full bathrooms in all. There is only one room that does not have a fabulous ocean view, but even that one has views over the lovely front garden with so many blooming rose bushes and colorful flowers. There is a detached two-car garage with lots of private parking. Open and airy, this inviting beach home is as refreshing as a gentle breeze on a lazy summer’s day.

Enjoy romantic sunsets alone or entertain friends on the lush 210-foot lawn overlooking the ocean. Putter in the gardens for hours or drift off into an afternoon nap on the hammock or the sun-drenched terrace. Create a fresh fruit salad from the orchard, which includes apple, apricot, plum, fig, nectarine, orange, lemon and lime trees (seasonal). Play croquet, bocci ball or just listen to the ocean. Dolphins, whales and pelicans are all included.

Truly, this is the Santa Barbara lifestyle at its best! Welcome to the American Riviera.

traveler reviews for this santa barbara house rental

Instantly relaxing...

Review submitted: December 28, 2011   Date of arrival: December 22, 2011

This property is truly lovely and the home delightfully comfortable. The grounds are expansive with breathtaking 180 + degree views. Our family found the setting instantly relaxing which isn't always accomplished on the first day of arriving to an anticipated "relaxing" destination. I highly recommend for easy going, uncomplicated relaxation.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with teenagers, girls getaway, romantic getaway
