Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: We live in Vail,Colorado where we work as ski instructors and volunteer as mountain hosts and tour guides. We love to escape to Santa Barbara during the 'mud seasons' in the spring and fall, where we enjoy scuba diving, sailing, beach tennis, hiking and wine-tasting. Prior to retiring in Vail, we both practiced law in Denver, CO. Our adult children live in LA and Denver and love visiting us in both Vail and Santa Barbara. Jim & Bobbie Ruh

Why the Owner Chose West Beach:
We initially purchased our vacation cottage because one of our children was attending school in this location, but we quickly fell in love with this beautiful city and all of the cultural and outdoor activities that it offers.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love the Spanish Colonial charm of our cottage, our private garden with orange trees and our quiet neighborhood. We especially love the fact that we can walk everywhere! We take daily walks along East and West Beaches to Shoreline Park or out on Stearns Wharf. We love to walk to our favorite restaurants, Brophy Brothers and Enterprise Fish Company. We often walk to the movie theaters on State Street or to the Farmer's Markets on Tuesdays and Saturdays. We walk to the Santa Barbara Sailing Center, where we can rent a sailboat by the hour or take whale watching cruises. We walk to our Athletic Club to work out, to East Beach to pay beach tennis or volley ball, or to West Beach for swimming or tennis. We often picnic at Shoreline Park. We love the proximity of Santa Barbara City College and the opportunity to take classes there. We also love all the cultural events offered at the Lobero and Granada Theaters and other venues accessible by foot. It is truly a dream come true to spend time in this city.
