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.

Amazing and perfect holidays in Santa Barbara

Review submitted: August 24, 2014   Date of arrival: July 26, 2014

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.

Owners 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!

Review submitted: August 5, 2014   Date of arrival: July 5, 2014

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!

Owners 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.
