Very comfortable and well appointed home on one half acre with lots of trees, grass, beautiful landscape-all the comforts of home without any of the usual responsibilities.
Located just 2 miles from the beach community of Carpinteria and an even shorter distance to the quaint little beach town of Summerland, and about 5 miles from downtown Santa Barbara where you will find 'fine to funky' dining, outdoor cafes, a great zoo, museums, street musicians, beautiful beaches, and plenty of outdoor activities for everyone in the family.
Enjoy relaxing afternoons around the pool and jacuzzi (pool is heated June-Sept. and jacuzzi is 'good to go' year round) on your large redwood deck where you will find plenty of sun or shade to read that book you have not found the time to get around to. There is also an outdoor fire pit for night time camp fires-just steps from the jacuzzi.
If you are a horse lover (even if you aren't!), take in an afternoon polo match played by the top polo players in the world (May-September). This is where Prince William played in the summer of 2011-for what ever THAT'S worth!
Or if you are more inclined to a more active stay, take a run, walk or bike ride on several trails that are near by.
Make this your home away from home for all your get-away trips to beautiful Santa Barbara!

About the owner: We are a semi-retired couple who travel quite a bit. When in town and our home is rented, we may stay in the cottage that is also on the 1/2 acre property. However, it is in the front part of the property, while the pool, spa, bar-b-que and deck are in the back part of the lot and well secluded with all the privacy our guests desire. In fact, we have often gone an entire week without seeing-or being seen-by our guests, since when we are in Santa Barbara, we are usually out and about from early morning till night time-working or playing.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Your own private back yard beach! See pic's.
