Beautiful Spanish Villa with Spa & 360 View on 1.6 Acre


Property Details

Updated: Oct 17, 2016
House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

During Summer months - weekly stay is recommended.

This amazing home was built with the 360 degree view in mind. Walk out on the veranda in the morning, with a hot coffee and paper, and you will catch the early morning animals beginning to stir. Hummingbirds, deer, eagles, coyotes, etc. are just some of the wildlife all around. Relax in a soothing spa and enjoy peacefulness and tranquility with mountains and nature surrounding you.

With 1.6 very private acres, beautiful landscaping, and huge grass areas perfect for croquet or badmitton, it's hard to imagine downtown Santa Barbara only 2 miles away. At night, enjoy a fire in one of the two outdoor fire places either next to the jacuzzi or outdoor dining area and kitchen. Or toast up some 'smores around the huge firepit and stargaze at the black sky unobstructed by city lights. Let yourself go and feel a lifetime away.

Go inside and open some of the 10 french doors and unite the indoors and out. Every room in this incredible property has amazing views. The home is tastefully decorated in similar motifs as the Biltmore hotel. Huge vaulted celings throughout, profesional grade appliances, slate kitchen counter tops, tumbled marble bathrooms, fireplaces in master suite and great room, high quality linens as well as high speed wireless internet make this home first class. The newly added game room includes ping pong, air hockey, piano, etc. Children can enjoy the trampoline and swing set, scooters, games and toys. Our pet Turkey and his five best friend chickens are friendly and fun. Enjoy fresh eggs every morning for breakfast. No care is needed for them. Our gardner cares for them weekly. There truly is something for everyone!

This is a once in a lifetime place, with access to everything you need for a memorable visit. Hiking and world-class cycling trails are within a mile of the property. Watch paragliders and hang-gliders land in the adjacent meadow. Enjoy a horseback or mountain bike ride in the 200 acre park across the street. Walk only steps to tennis courts. For a small fee, use of our private tennis club with pool, jacuzzi, work out classes and machines can be arranged. The Santa Barbara Tennis Club is only one mile away.

Pristine beaches and downtown shopping only 2 miles away. Nestled between Montecito and Santa Barbara, it is the perfect location to experience the shopping, restaraunts, beaches, wildlife, sporting activities, and tranquility the entire area has to offer. Experiance the FULL Santa Barbara lifestyle in this amazing home.

This house is perfect for entertaining and relaxing with the feeling of seclusion yet close to everything.

We do not allow weddings or parties of any sort. Only a maximum of 8 guests on the property at any time.

We love hiking, biking, traveling, and all kinds of sports. Snow skiing and snow boarding fill many Winter days. Summer days, we spend a lot of time at our Lake house on Lake Nacimiento, wake boarding and water skiing!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at this home over UCSB graduation weekend. Everything was as beautiful as advertised, and the views were stunning. The landscaping is beautifully maintained with a big variety of seating areas from which to enjoy the beautiful outdoors. Just a few minutes from downtown Santa Barbara, you get the town at your fingertips while relaxing in what feels like your own ranch. Loved the fresh eggs!! We hope we get to go back to this place sometime!!

The most amazing views!!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at Jill's place thinking the photos of the views couldn't be more spectacular and they were,we turned the bend of the driveway and could not believe how beautiful it was,the house is very charming and had everything we could possibly need for our 3 night stay.The living areas were comfortable although we barely spent any time inside as the outdoor areas are fantastic,there are 3 levels to choose from and all have stunning views,I keep going on about the views but honestly they are lovely ,friends kept messaging me where are you? How did you find that house?

The hot tub on the bottom level was great nice and clean and easy to work.Our dogs had the time of their lives chasing the chipmunks and roaming the yard.My brother in law who was visiting from Scotland hired a bike and Jill filled him in on trails he could easily access straight from the house which he took advantage of daily.

Its about a 15 minute drive to Hendry's beach which lets dogs go off leash so this was a fave of ours The Boathouse restaurant there is pretty good too for lunch,the Ahi Tuna sandwich was fabulous.We honestly didn't spend a whole lot of time in Santa Barbara as we couldn't wait to get back to the house.

We did go shopping on State Street and lunch at Bucatinis on State which was great too.

We have wonderful memories of the house and wouldn't hesitate to go back, our visitors from Scotland got to see another part of California as we are from Northern California and our kids drove up from LA to be with us for a night so was ideal for us,don't hesitate to book this one its special we have booked on VRBO for years all over the world and this has been our favorite so far,thanks for sharing your lovely home with us Jill. :)

Beautiful home with view and plenty of gathering areas

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 8 girls stay at this home for a bachelorette weekend. It was absolutely beautiful. Great view of the valley with different areas outdoors for gathering. Trampoline, bbq area, pergola for outdoor dining, grassy area for relaxing, jacuzzzi, and many different firepits. It was hard for us to leave and venture out! Jill was super sweet and accommodating. Overall we had a blast and wish we could have stayed longer.

Amazing Girl's Weekend in SB

  • 5 of 5

Every year a group of moms (who meet when our babies were in diapers) get together for Mother's Day weekend to celebrate and have a truly relaxing Mother's Day. This year we chose Santa Barbara. Four of us arrived on Thursday afternoon and were met with Jill at the house. We were blown away by the view. The house is set-up to take advantage of the rolling hills views. It felt like we were in the hills of Italy yet we were 5-10 minutes from restaurants and stores. Everything was clean and the pictures do not do the house justice. The patio areas had multiple fire pits. We picked up two more friends from the train station and decided to order food and enjoy the house and patios. We hiked to Parma park right from the house and took the view trail to get a panoramic view of Santa Barbara, Montecito and the ocean. We also went wine tasting and to an adult event at the zoo. Getting fresh eggs from the chicken and making meals in the well-stocked kitchen was also a highlight of our weekend. I especially appreciated how clean the house was and the little touches like the twinkling lights and flameless candles. We haven't visited the same place twice yet, but if we do- it would be here.

From the Owner

We love the location of our home. It feels as if it is in a serene Oasis far from the hustle and bustle of city life, yet it is close (2 miles) to downtown with restaurants, shopping, and beaches. We love to hike. Many hiking trails are a stones throw away! World class biking, running, and walking outside the front door.

From the Owner

There is Santa Barbara's raw natural beauty as far as the eye can see. Viewing all kinds of wildlife is amazing. We are visited regularly by deer, bunnies, and distant howls of coyotes. Bird watching over the canyon is spectacular. Hawks, Eagles, Owls, and even para gliders are a common experience.
