About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, preferred minimum stay 31 days!

Care for a view?

Located at the charming hills of the Santa Barbara 'Riviera', right above the city lights and humming downtown, this piece of retreat offers you all the amenities you deserve. A private beautiful brick patio in a California garden provides the most spectacular views: The harbor, Stearn's Wharf, the Pacific Ocean, and the beautiful Channel Islands under the blue skies of Southern California greet you every morning. After sunset, the city lights wave a friendly 'Hello' while you are enjoying a barbecue or just relaxing from your vacation adventures....

The house was beautifully and completely remodeled in 2008 and 2009. (Hardwood floors, new windows, kitchen, bathrooms, furniture etc.) Three bedrooms, two modern baths. Brick fireplace. Beautiful patio (barbecue and stylish patio heater) in a tropical garden overlooking Santa Barbara and the harbor. From the private twin carport, a 2014 built, stylish designer stairway takes you up to the house and the beautiful patio. Sorry - no wheelchair access, yet ...

Breathtaking ocean- city- and island views. Fully furnished and equipped in european contempory style, the house very comfortably sleeps four (two queen size beds in master bedrooms) or even up to six people (modern guest sofa bed in study): perfectly suited for families and friends. Two luxurious bathrooms help to avoid any possible morning traffic jams.....

Pots and pans, plates and forks in a stylish kitchen with granite counter top. Washer, dryer, modern appliances ....

Cable flat screen TV, CD/DVD, multimedia computer (MacMini), complimentary SKYPE(c) and Netflix(c) accounts, high speed internet WLAN....

What else do you need?

We prefer longer stays (minimum 31 days). HOWEVER, if you are planning on a four day week or so, please let us know!

Love the place and its spectacular views.
