Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Steve and Diane worked in management, law and luxury destinations in Alaska for 35 years before retiring to beautiful Santa Barbara. For fun, Steve writes and plays a variety of music and loves hiking, music and fitness. And Diane enjoys gardening, hiking, fitness and jazz. Both have served on many community boards. Steve is now retired and still writing and singing, and Diane provides relocation assistance to Santa Barbara area, is a certified wedding consultant, and has a California real estate license. The same attention to detail is evident in Pacific Peace vacation/corporate rentals in Santa Barbara is what won our former inn, Pearson's Pond Luxury Inn and Adventure Spa in Juneau most travel journals' designation as 'Best of' in accommodations, destination wedding, honeymoon, and adventure vacation destination, and which was featured in hundreds of magazines, dozens of films and much more including Sunset, BackRoads, AAA, CNN, 1,000 Places to Stay Before You Die, etc. We want to host you so you can ensure you get the best quality and value. With our extensive experience, we can help guide you in creating your ideal vacation! And we look forward to serving you.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
After a worldwide search for the perfect destination for active retirement, we found Paradise in Santa Barbara. This specific property called Pacific Peace, which translates to 'Little Heaven', captured their hearts and their exact vision of paradise on earth. The expansive scenic views of ocean, islands, coastline and mountains will take your breath away. The home, cottage and town has everything needed for active retirement while providing visual beauty and intellectual stimulation. We can help YOU relocate too!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The varied view of coastline, ocean, night lights and mountains is unique. You will enjoy being away from the fog which is typical at the beach until noonish. You'll be away from the noise and dense neighborhoods, instead, revel in the quiet heart of hiking/biking/paragliding areas, and still close-in (10 minutes to beach, 5 minutes to mission, 10 to galleries, museums, shopping, theater, etc.), enjoying Santa Barbara which is a world-class vacation destination, and finding space and nature to enjoy and relax. Within just two separate detached resident buildings on this gated estate away from the crowds, you can rest assured of privacy, whether for your honeymoon, a healing retreat or filming a Hollywood movie (yes, its been done, quietly). And, after 20 years in luxury resort management and catering to discerning guests, we truly enjoy sharing our piece of paradise. We can also facilitate concierge service and share info about the hidden gems in the region beyond that shown in your rental, its deck, gardens, and hot tub.
