“Oh My Gosh!!!” are the words most often spoken when people first enter El Amarre through it’s Gaudi inspired foyer overlooking the sea. The Spanish Colonial architecture will transport you back to California’s romantic era of the 1920’s. The sumptuous interiors beckon you to relax and enjoy the tranquil space, with the sound of the sea as your constant companion. From the black and white tiled sweeping stairwell, to the powder room that gives a nod to its classic Santa Barbara architectural roots, no detail has been overlooked.

In a city known for its views, and its amazing beaches, you will overlook one of Santa Barbara’s most beautiful and gentle surf spots, Leadbetter Beach. You can surf, boogie board, kayak, stand up paddle board, swim, bike, or watch others from sunrise to sunset. There are 3 luxury appointed bedrooms. With weekday maid service.

Sub Zero, and Fisher/Paykel dish drawers, and every imaginable culinary gadget to make your stay feel like home. Exquisite dining table seats 10 or 2, overlooking the ocean, with outdoor dining for the same. Gracious iron doors allow access to the outdoors from all rooms.

The sandstone fire pit with panoramic views is where everyone will want to meet at the end of their inspired day to watch the sunset with a glass of famous Santa Barbara wine.

The family and media room are a cozy spot to play board games overlooking the ocean, or watch movies on a system designed by Chris Pelonis of Sony Studios on a 70” screen. DVD player, cable and Apple TV are available for your use.
There are 2 other televisions in the house. 1 in the master bedroom, and one in the living room. Both are 32” flat screens with cable and Apple TV.
