Property description

Comfortable remodeled Bungalow with 2 bedrooms and a bonus room with 2 twin beds, sitting on half an acre in a quiet cul-de-sac. Located above the SB Mission in Mission Canyon. You hear more birds than traffic--yet you're only 10 minutes from the heart of downtown...

The Space
Beautifully finished and detailed. Lots of natural wood and stonework inside and out. Hardwood floors, gourmet kitchen, large inviting covered porch.

The house has a peaceful master bedroom with a king sized Tempurpedic bed, connecting to the master bath with an extra large tub, seperate shower and water closet. The second bedroom has a queen sized bed and its own bathroom with shower. The full kitchen is equipped with a large stove/grill/oven, microwave, fridge, small appliances, cookware, place settings, utensils and all that you might need to prepare and serve meals. The house is ideal for a family with children, or for 2 couples.

There's lots of outdoor space on our property and we are in a quiet, very walkable neighborhood. Surrounding the house is a garden with native plants and succulents, dining areas on the deck and covered porch, and a Weber grill if you'd like to cook outdoors.

We're a short walk to the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden or to the Tunnel & 7 Falls trail heads and many miles of scenic hiking or biking. Being a bit up the canyon, we're usually above the coastal fog, and we're often clear and sunny on mornings when much of Santa Barbara is still cool and grey.

It's just a few minutes drive to Mission Santa Barbara, the Natural History Museum and downtown Santa Barbara with sightseeing, restaurants, tasting rooms, shopping, theaters, parks and beaches.

The House has 2 off-street parking spaces, high speed WiFi, cable and Apple TV.

Smoking is not permitted anywhere on the property.

Guest Access
There is an outdoor hot tub/spa behind the Main House that is shared with the Guest House.

Interaction with Guests
We love to meet new people and share whatever we know of Santa Barbara with them, but we also know how wonderful privacy can be. We're always glad to be of help, but your time here is all your own...

The Neighborhood
We live in a quiet neighborhood in the lower foothills above Mission Canyon. There's not much traffic so it's a great area for evening strolls or dog walking. We're about a 5 minute walk to the gorgeous Santa Barbara Botanic Garden, and about a mile from the 7 Falls/Tunnel trail head which brings you into to the extensive network of hiking and biking trails in the National Forest above us.

Getting around
Since we're up in the foothills a bit you'll need a car (or a bike and strong legs) to get around while you're here. The nearest city bus is over a mile away.

Other Things to Note
We are quiet, kind and respectful and appreciate the same in exchange. It's a quiet neighborhood where sound travels remarkably far so we'd like you to be considerate, especially at night. Please do not use the Hot Tub before 11am or after 11pm. No parties or gatherings of more than 6 people allowed on the premises.

We have off street parking and we live on a narrow road so please park in the spaces behind the house or on the gravel at the left side of our driveway and never on the street.

Smoking is not permitted anywhere on the property.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: We love hiking, biking, gardening, animals, food, wine, travel and the beach. Have been lucky to live in this wonderful community for 20 years and happy to share everything about it with our guests.

Why the Owner Chose Mission Canyon:
We looked for a year for a house we could agree easy. Until we saw a dilapidated 1940's 2 bedroom, 1 bath nestled under the most spectacular 80 foot Italian Stone Pine in all of Santa Barbara. We undertook a very major remodel of the home and somehow our marriage survived it. We've been here for 15 years. Sadly the 65 year old Stone Pine is gone now, the ocean view is much better, but we miss it...

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The quietist part of Santa Barbara we've ever found. No streetlights, no sidewalks, yet we're only 10 minutes from the heart of Santa Barbara's downtown. Up in the hills above the coastal fog and close to miles of fabulous hiking trails and 180 degree views of the coast.
