Private Homes house description

Casa das Palmas – Luxury Vacation Retreat and Spa by the Ocean.

As you approach this property, you know a special Santa Barbara Experience is about to begin. Set amid a lush palm grove with exotic and fragrant gardens, this expansive California Hacienda has a pool, spa and lighted tennis court.

An open central fireplace that warms both the living and family rooms, a fully outfitted gourmet kitchen, and large rooms with Cathedral ceilings and skylights throughout are just some of the features of this luxury home.

Just three blocks from the ocean in Santa Barbara’s Coastal Zone, you will breathe clean Pacific air, relax in year round moderate temperatures and witness stunning sunrises and sunsets.

Outdoor living is fun at Casa das Palmas with day beds, Brazilian wedding hammocks, and an outdoor eating area complete with gas fireplace. You can join friends on the newly refinished doubles tennis court, take shots on the basketball hoop, swim in the therapy pool or bathe in the spa.

The gourmet kitchen is a chef's dream (and a private chef is available upon request). Twelve-foot cathedral ceilings and skylights create a feeling of total spaciousness. Granite counter tops have plenty of working space and twin sinks.

Pull up a stool for great family times at the large center island. Enjoy breakfast at the large breakfast nook overlooking the gardens and crystalline pool. Appliances include Sub –Zero fridge and freezer, 2 Decor broiler/ovens, Bosch dishwasher and ample cabinetry. French doors open up to an outdoor dining area with fireplace.

The master suite has its own fireplace, en suite bathroom and French doors that open onto lush fragrant gardens. A short pathway connects to the heated spa at night or an invigorating swim in the morning. Pastel blues and greens promote peace and wellbeing in the open and spacious master suite.

The living room is lovely with front and back French doors, a faux stone fireplace and fully stocked honor wet bar. With its 13 foot pitched beam ceiling and no two walls parallel, the acoustics are outstanding. The living room quickly converts to a large open area great for yoga, dance, or gaming area.

Casa das Palmas is filled with interesting furniture, artifacts and books from South America and South East Asia. The property is located walking distance to the famous Hendry’s beach (a local's favorite with a nice restaurant), the Douglas Family Preserve, and it is next door to the elite estates of Hope Ranch. Casa das Palmas offers the perfect private sanctuary for you and yours to relax, enjoy and rejuvenate.
