              Year Purchased: 1999

              About the owner: I grew up in Santa Barbara, and appreciate the beauty and history that this town offers. I have also travelled all over the world, and after staying in a multitude of hotels, I am commited to making your visit at Casitas Vista la Riviera enjoyable and at a top quality level.

              Why the Owner Chose Downtown:
              I fell in love with the property based on its location and potential. An original 1919 Craftsman house, I have spent the past 13 years rebuilding and expanding as a historic reconstruction. Keeping the historic charm but also adding the conveniences and cleaniness of a modern property.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Stunning views of the Santa Barbara Riviera, and a steady ocean breeze make for a relaxing stay. Once here, you will see why I have choosen this property and why we work hard to make your visit memorable.
