With great intention, creativity & love, a magical 3 acre realm invented for those seeking a quiet, sensual nature connection experience! A unique retreat that is playful, soulful & beyond belief EPIC. Consists of a private stunning glass cottage, outside lounge kitchen, redwood outside shower/ bath house, pool, hot tub, hammocks & fresh eggs from the chickens. Off the grid yet minutes to beach, trails, wine tasting & downtown Santa Barbara. Renew, be happy!

The space
The GLASS HOUSE is a gorgeous modern design with two walls of thick solid glass which gives the illusion of being outside, but the feeling of cozy protection. A strange and wonderful juxtapostion of moods! The space is creekside under giant sycamores, native oaks. Outside mirrored walls give the illusion of being invisible as it reflects the surrounding woods and grove The glass house has a very luxurious, organic feeling.. brilliantly bringing the inside and outside worlds together in beautiful harmony. Birds chirping and the sweet sounds of wind through the trees, hang in the hammock with air feel divine, sun supreme. Off the cottage is a beautiful red wood deck perfect for yoga or hanging out.

This 3 acre grove area is part of a larger 11 acre land though is like it's very own property, gated in and exclusive to the 4 guests residing in the grove. The meadow consists of two incredible cottages situated about 150 feet apart (both separate offerings) which face opposite directions for the most privacy possible while maintaining their own unique views. I designed this so visitors could have their own "house", but also have some potential for awesome community overlap at the outside kitchen/ lounge area. The redwood bath house is also a shared beauty between the two cottages. You can think of this unique realm as an amazing nature connection resort exclusively for 4 people. Pretty epic! There is also the beautiful common space of the pool/ hot tub area (acres up) on another portion of my property.

There's another page devoted to the "fantastical cottage" which is a super whimsical, airy, soulful cottage looking out to the epic Santa Barbara mountain range through a collage of vintage windows and an awesome partially enclosed deck. A truly amazing space.. very different than the glass house but equally wonderful in it's own unique way.

If you'd like the entire grove to yourselves for up to 4 people, please book: "Nature-Sanctuary dream land with 2 glass cottages" which is the GLASS HOUSE + FANTASTICAL in one listing.

Besides the private cottages, the grove consists of a colorful covered outside kitchen/ hang out zone and an extra spacious redwood outside shower and bath house. All spaced about 100-200 feet apart. And of course the house of the hens who lay fresh organic eggs for your breakfast! Not to mention the grand trampaline! and pool/ hot tub access accessible on the other side of the land.

Now, those are the man made things. The "hallway" is the land itself.. which is something I really can't capture visually here. There's a quality of this place that profoundly nurtures the senses.. smell, site, sound... reorganizing your central nervous system in all the ways we so desperately need in this modern world!

One of the incredible things about this property is that it's a mere 2 miles to shopping malls, Whole Foods and restaurants (5 minutes) and 10 minutes to downtown Santa Barbara, wine tasting rooms, hip funk zone, shopping... 5 minutes to trailhead that lead out to the ocean, 10 minutes right to the beach. We're also just 30 minutes from Santa Ynez, Los Olivos, Solvang (wine country).

The land is unique because it feels like you're very remote and off the grid out in nature (which you are) but then it's just minutes to get anywhere in Santa Barbara. Very find rare to find such a spot with so much surrounding private serene land!

The setting is ideal for 2-4 adults (4 if you're taking both cottages (Nature Connection Sanctuary w/ 2 glass cottages: under my hostess profile >> listings by this hostess) and 2 if you're occupying just one) or one solo soul looking to retreat. I also love to welcome pets, but do let me know so we can chat doggy ground rules! It's $30 extra cash all together for the furry friends + $20 after the 1st.

This has been such a passion of mine, sharing my land ... letting nature be of benefit to people who are making their beautiful memories here. It's an honor to have visitors part of the unfolding story of my home. I've marveled at the care and respect people bring.. so a place like this can exist for the enjoyment of all.. including the trees, the critters, the intact ecosystem I get to be a hostess to. Makes my heart glad!!!

I live on the property in my "own neck of the woods" (so I'm around by text or in person if needed). I love to greet visitors briefly with a hug and all the info so the experience goes smooth and safe. We are not too likely to cross paths as this is a very large property, but I have "your back" for anything you might need!

The photographs... I have to say, DO NOT GIVE JUSTICE.. You'll know what I mean when you get here...the stillness... the open, natural setting, nurturing and safe feeling. It's a very special zone in which to unravel the revise and renew. To get a deeper sense of peoples experiences, reading peoples reviews is great for that. Hope to share in it with you!

Where you’ll be

Santa Barbara, California, United States

My private property is a very large land, 11 acres, which is surrounded by other large private properties and national forest. We are outside neighborhood zones, a half mile off a private road, so it feels very much off the grid. Amazingly we are a mere 5 minutes from uptown shops in Santa Barbara, 10 minutes to dog friendly leashless beaches, airport and train station, 30 minutes to Santa Ynez wine country and 10-12 minutes anywhere in the heart of Santa Barbara shops, restaurants and entertainment. Truly best of ALL worlds!
