Summerland is a quaint little beach town nestled between the mountains and the ocean! This little town has it everything you need for a fabulous vacation retreat.
You can walk to Outlook Park, the portal to the beach, which has a playground for the kids, sand volleyball court, horse pit, formal picnic areas, restrooms and parking is Free. Outlook Park is operated by Santa Barbara Parks and Recreation, so it is very well kept and clean. The beach is a hidden gem. It is rarely busy, so you can have plenty of room to spread out and enjoy yourself.
Summerland also has plenty of restaurants that are all within walking distance from the Summerland Double Dolphin. The Nugget is a “locals” delight and offers a full menu and bar. Summerland Café is wonderful for breakfast and lunch. If you are in the mood for “beach fare” then we would recommend Tinkers or Stacky’s. Both have great burgers, chicken sandwiches, fries, shakes and much more. Stacky’s also offers a fabulous breakfast burrito but you better be very hungry.
If you want to do a little wine tasting, there is the Summerland Winery. The winery has 14+ different varietals from 9 renowned vineyards. Some of their wines were recognized by The Wine Advocate's Robert Parker.
You can also spend time shopping in Summerland. The town has clothing stores including the Bikini Factory as well as other unique boutiques. You can also find plenty of jewelry at the Sacred Space, Wax Poetic and other stores. There are also a variety of antique stores that have an abundant array of unique items.
Summerland has it ALL and the Summerland Double Dolphin is ideally located in the midst of it all. We are far enough from the highway yet close enough to town to walk to everything. You can park your car and never have to get into it again.
We are close to many neighboring towns (Santa Barbara-5 miles, Montecito-2 miles and Carpinteria-4 miles). There is public transportation available to all the neighboring towns and is easily accessible within 3 blocks from the vacation home.
The Summerland Double Dolphin is private and is all on one level. It is not connected to any other unit. It offers a great view, clean interior, off-street private parking, fully equipped kitchen, customized bath complete with towels and toiletries, beach accessories (beach towels, umbrellas, chairs), full on-site private laundry, private BBQ gas grill, private patio area which is great for entertaining or intimate dinners.
We, the owners -Rick and Debby, are readily available if you need us. We want to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: We have been in Summerland for about 10 years moving here from Arizona by way of Massachusetts. Rick has been in construction for over 30 years and we designed and custom built the Summerland Double Dolphin to be the ideal vacation home that it is. We put our heart and soul into a place where people could come to relax, enjoy the beach and the town that we fell in love with 10 years ago. We are very proud of our home and we think it shows. A special thanks to family, friends, subcontractors, suppliers and the County of Santa Barbara that made this dream possible! Please read all our guest reviews that we just started to get this last July, we really do care about our guest having a great vacation stay at the Summerland Double Dolphin! Debby and Rick
Why the Owner Chose Summerland:
We chose this location because it allowed us to build a second home on the property to fulfill our vision of one day being able to build a new custom home that family and guests could enjoy for many years.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Being that we built this home in 2014 from the ground up we were able to truly choose the amenities that are important to us and to our guests as well. These amenities include a great ocean view allowing you to relax and watch the boats and sea life pass by. We also incorporated hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings, comfortable furniture, and a kitchen dinette in a place that gets magnificent natural light. We know that everyone congregates to the kitchen so we built a great extended seating counter with backed bar stools that allow for everyone to come together and enjoy each other’s company. The home also has a customized bathroom with a large inlay glass walk in shower. The bedrooms are roomy and offer plenty of light. All the switched lighting throughout the home is customized so you can create your own mood through dimmer switches and we included ceiling fans in all the rooms. The home is very quite as it has all double pane windows with screens and solid interior alder wood doors. We put a lot of thought into the footprint of the home so that it would be very private including the patio off the master bedroom and the seating area in the backyard. We have even installed a complete fire sprinkler system for your safety.
