Our spacious house captivates the essence of the Santa Barbara lifestyle!
The deck and hot tub look out over the gorgeous mountains that turn purple at sunset. Walk on the beach or sample the international flavor of downtown just minutes away.
The house is on 1.3 acres of privacy. We are up a long driveway and the house overlooks the Santa Barbara mountains. We live the alfresco lifestyle here.
Large glass sliding doors open onto an expansive deck and grassy area. There is seamless living between the gleaming douglas fir floors and the sunny space outside.
The bedrooms are on the second floor and all are sunny with views. We love comfort here, and know you do also. All the beds have high quality mattresses, luxurious sheets, soft pillows and down comforters.
Enjoy the hot tub after a swim in the ocean, or with a glass of local wine under the stars.
MAIN HOUSE: 6 ADULTS + 2 CHILDREN
We comfortably sleep 6 in beds (+ 2 Children are welcome as extra guests on a Queen air mattress) in the MAIN House.
COTTAGE: 4 ADULTS
We have beautiful modern Guest Cottage on the property that sleeps 4. It has a King bed in the downstairs Master, and a Queen in the upstairs sleeping loft if you need room for 10 people.
- The Cottage is an additional rental fee, and is offered at a reduced rate when the entire property is booked. See the link below for more information:
There are 3 available off-street private parking spaces for guests for the Main House and 2 spots available for the Cottage.
We overlook the beautiful Santa Barbara mountains. It is idyllic and quiet here. All of the homes are on large lots which lends itself to an abundance of tranquillity and privacy.
Other Things to Note
Please note: During the Summer Season from June 12 - September 6, 2015, the minimum stay is 3 days.
The main RETREAT House has 3 bedrooms plus a great Queen air mattress for 2 (preferably for kids), for up to 8 people.
For parties of 7-10 adults, we have a beautiful 1bedroom+Loft guest Cottage on the property that has a King bed downstairs, and Queen bed in the loft, that can be rented along with the main Retreat House for extra room.
Please note that Santa Barbara is now on a water moratorium and our water prices have increased 103%. We have reflected this in keeping our prices the same, until your party exceeds 6 people. We then charge for the extra water usage. We hope to be back to regular water use this winter!
We live in a beautiful, quiet and tranquil neighborhood. Our house is meant for families and adults looking for a retreat. Loud parties are not allowed.
What a lovely home and a great place to stay for our getaway in Santa Barbara. It had everything we wanted and needed, including a spectacularly equipped kitchen, comfortable living room and bedrooms, and a hot tub that was perfect for beating the cold snap that hit as we arrived.
Stunning views over the canyon, an incredible property with a terraced garden running up the side of the hill, and a perfect tranquil setting.
Everything was perfectly lined up for us when we arrived, and we had no issues at all during our stay.
This place is better than the photos. It is so perfectly quiet and gorgeous. Better than a 5 star hotel. Beds are amazing as is everything else I love it here.
Die Gastgeberin hat sich wunderbar durch Nachfragen darum gekümmert, dass wir gut angekommen sind und ob alles in Ordnung ist. Das Haus war bestens vorbereitet mit einer Beschreibung, wie alles zu bedienen ist, alles sehr sauber und erstklassiges Bettzeug und Handtücher. Das Haus liegt in fantastischer Umgebung, die Einrichtung aller Räumlichkeiten ist hervorragend und von herausragender Qualität. Die Beschreibung stimmt 100-prozentig. Wir (eine 7-köpfige Gruppe) haben uns rundum wohl gefühlt und hoffen, bald zurückkommen zu können.
"The hostess was wonderful, and bothered to ask if we had arrived safely and that everything was in order. The house was well prepared with a description of how to use everything. Everything is very clean with premium bedding and towels. The house is situated in fantastic surroundings, all of the furniture in the space is excellent and of outstanding quality. The description is true 100 percent. We (a group of 7) felt ourselves very well and hope to come back soon."
Chris! Thank you so much for visiting! It was wonderful to have you and all of your friends in our home. You were so warm and friendly and communicative. I expect you back for your reunion again!! :)
This lovely home could not be better, between the grand kitchen, comfy bedrooms and magical sunny deck, it was the perfect space for Our Santa Barbara vacation. Andrea was unbelievably helpful in every way between coordinating before, suggestions and every day questions. The house and her are so accommodating, you feel as though you are in your own home! We all felt so lucky to have had a chance to stay here! I would recommend to anyone who needs a good relaxing weekend!!
The photos do not do this amazing house justice, the kitchen felt so comfortable and was so fun to gather around and cook our meals together. Waking up in those sunny hills was magical and eating our breakfast and drinking coffee al fresco was such a special treat. Our group shared a lot of lovely memories at this home. Don't look any further! This is where you want to be. :)
Our experience with Andrea's lovely home could not have been any better. The house is located in one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in California, and the views are spectacular. In fact, we believe that the photos do not do her home justice. It is far more amazing in person.
Andrea took the extra mile in communicating with us, and helping us feel at home.
We especially loved the kitchen layout, as our friends were able to gather around the island while dinner was prepared. Her dining table accommodated 8 of us comfortably. From the Viking range to the Le Creuset cookware, there is everything you could every possibly want and need in Andrea's kitchen.
Everything in the home was neatly organized and easy to find, and immaculately clean. The beds were extremely comfortable, and we all noted how luxurious the linens were in each bed room.
The outdoor area was just as wonderful as the inside of the home, and we made sure to make use of the hot tub. We especially loved the lavender bushes lining the entry way, and the garden area which was perfect for morning quiet time.
You'll be pressed to find a more amazing place, and a more gracious host.
Thank you Andrea for helping us coordinate a wonderful stay, we look forward to returning!
