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.

traveler reviews for this santa barbara house rental


Review submitted: April 7, 2014   Date of arrival: March 29, 2014

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!

Owners 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.

It is as it appears, awesome… what a view!

Review submitted: April 4, 2014   Date of arrival: March 7, 2014

We look forward to our yearly trip to Santa Barbara and have stayed at many homes throughout the city. Blending in with the locals, visiting our favorite stops, our family of four has enjoyed the welcoming flare of this coastal city and the needed break from the Midwest winters. It is not often that you stumble upon a home that so quickly allows you to settle in as though it is yours, one that simply provides the best of Santa Barbara in location and comfort.

When we first arrived we didn't even enter the house because the view was so awesome. We all sat on the patio and deck areas surrounding the pool and took in the sites which stretched for miles.

We stayed close to home as we found everything we needed from sun up to sun down… sunrise with coffee poolside, afternoon swimming (hotdogs on the grill - why not!) and lounging, cocktails and dinner on the deck at sunset, and a nighttime jacuzzi to finish the day off under the stars. Inside we found the home to be very clean, comfortable and well appointed. Even though the bathrooms were beautiful with spacious showers, we all chose to shower outside with the view.

Terry's attention to detail in all aspects of the rental process is genuine as it is evident that he truly cares about his property and your enjoyment of it.

Thank you for a wonderful week.

Owners response: Once again, we have been so lucky to have such nice people as guests. It is gratifying to us when families like these appreciate the things in this property we do. This wonderful family texted a picture of themselves shortly after arriving, which we found unique and sincere.
Thank-you for being so great to work with, and treating the property as if it were yours, (and for raking a few leaves as well!). Also, thanks for the kind words in this review. Best to your family, and I hope our paths cross again. T

These pictures don't lie...Absolutely Perfect Home

Review submitted: March 3, 2014   Date of arrival: February 15, 2014

We decided to go to SB for kids east coast winter break and this home was everything you could hope for. The pictures show EXACTLY what you get when you walk through the a model home. The pool and spa are breath-taking and the view is not to be believed. Terry, our host, was so gracious and attentive to every detail making our vacation so easy and relaxing. We used the pool every day and often ate in to take advantage of the sunsets. Don't let the vetting process or security deposit scare you. It was worth it! Went whale watching, toured wine country, took LA studio tour, and walked along the beach in Montecito. So much to do for adults and kids. The weather perfectly warm and sunny everyday. Thanks Terry for a much needed vacation!

Owners response: Thanks so much to an exceptional family. Although we never met, its as if I have known these guests from before. They were so easy to work with, and we are glad they had the perfect vacation. They also, according to our housekeeper, left the property in very nice condition.

Thanks also for your kind words on the house. We see the flaws at times, and try our best to deliver a great house and property, at a fair price. We care that guests get a good product, and it is maintained as we would like while on vacation.We care about what our guests think, and that they look back and are happy with their choice of this property.

Thank you again to a really wonderful family. Please come back again !!!!
