Mission Canyon apartment description
Located in the hills above the city, you are only 1.2 miles from State Street, (the main artery for shopping and restaurants) and four miles to the beach, pier and art walk. The closest stores and restaurants are less than 1.5 miles away, though you may feel nicely removed from the city in this hilltop suite surrounded by spectacular views of the ocean, islands, mountains, oak trees, plenty of nature and by night - a span of glittering city lights visible through nearly wall-to-wall french doors that lead to a private stone-paved patio. Enjoy the morning views of rolling hills, orchards and mountains that look like the Tuscan countryside.
Charming pathways lead you a large, solar-heated pool, spa and 'petting zoo' of one very friendly goat. The zoo is located at the farthest end of the fully-gated two-acre property.
This one bedroom suite plus curtained alcove with daybed has been newly remodeled and designed to be light, refreshing, airy, stylish and comfortable. Romantic for a couple and cozy for a small family – it sleeps up to five. Feel your spirits lift the moment you walk in the door.

More amazing than any pictures
More amazing than any pictures
As good as it looks in the pictures, this property surpasses all of your great expectations of it. Our stay there was so nice that if we could we would probably stay there another week(we stayed for a week). On top of its excellent location and setting(It sits on top of a hill and it's both close to every attraction in Santa Barbara if you want it to be and isolated from everything if you just want to stay home and relax. We rented a bike and rode around town for several days of our stay, and every time we came back we had a nice work-out climbing the hill on our bikes), the house is extremely well put together. The owners thought of every detail and daily minutiae(for example all the spices and cookware that you possibly would need to cook were there), and everything in the house is done at a world class level.

Owner response: Thank you so much for your kind and thoughtful review, Alina. We enjoyed having you both here - you are delightful guests and we hope you will visit again soon. We really wanted people to feel comfortable, cozy and thoroughly enjoy themselves. Thank you for letting us know that we achieved our objectives. We are more than happy to meet the needs of our guests and to make new friends. Thanks for the pie and thank you for making all of our neighbors think we are bike-riding, exercise enthusiasts. They all admire us now ;).

Why the Owner Chose Mission Canyon:
We instantly fell in love with this property because of the beautiful views and grounds –two acres of nature. We always call it our bit of heaven. We named our suite the 'Tuscan Vista' because of the rolling hills and the orchards that lead up to the mountains. You will feel you are in a rural setting but everything is just a few minutes away.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Glorious views everywhere, peaceful setting, newly remodeled suite with brand new appliances and furniture. Bird-watching and stargazing. Kids and adults will love the pool (nice and warm), hot tub and plenty of yard (fully gated) in which to play, visit the goat, swim and be creative. Outdoor seating and lounging provided. The suite is all one level from off-street parking to your suite - only one step. There is a bathtub/shower combination. A very clean suite with comfortable mattresses and linens. There is a daybed (twin) alcove that can be made private by closing the curtains and a sleeper sofa full/queen in living room. It is bliss.
