About this listing
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.
*PLEASE NOTE: We have 5 night minimum rental for the Summer months.
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 5 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.
1) The minimum rental age of the primary renter who will be residing on the property for the duration of the rental period must be at least 30 years of age. This property does not allow parties or large gatherings.
2) 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.
Maison exceptionnlle. Les photos ne lui rendent pas justice. Vue magnifique super grande, bien equipee, chambres spacieuses voire immense pour la masterbedroom. Pour trouver une critique:il mnque un seche cheveu dixit ma femme. Jill nous avait donne toutes les indications pour trouver cette retraite de luxe ds les montagnes. Les enfants ont adore le jacuzi et les parents le barbecue et les aperos sur les terrasses.
Jill was the perfect host! Everything was clear and simple. Our stay was absolutely lovely. The pictures don't do the property justice, it was breathtaking. I would recommend this home and this host to anyone!
Wonderful host and fantastic place to stay for a relaxing Santa Barbara getaway!
The house was absolutely lovely, with comfortable bedrooms, great bathrooms, a spacious living room, extremely well-stocked kitchen, and beautiful scenery. Plus, Jill was a very warm and inviting host.
Our stay was super relaxing and perfect for a weekend away. Could not have been better. Absolutely recommended!
What a terrific host, home and location! We rented the main house in Montecito and could not have been happier or more comfortable. Jill (and Andrea) were both very responsive both before and during our stay. We were 6 adults with our canine companions and the home was the perfect size for our group. Well stocked kitchen, comfortable multiple seating areas, terrific outdoor spaces, lovely neighborhood to walk and literally just minutes from the beach and downtown Santa Barbara. Great beds! Even though there is another cottage on this property, the home is situated for privacy. We also felt that the home was very special - it felt like a home rather than a rental and we so appreciated all of the beautiful art, special furniture and warmth of the decor. Our dogs loved the yard and respected the "non-fence" low wall that makes the lawn area feel like it is fenced. We would love to return to this lovely home.
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!! :)
