Montecito house description

Our spacious house captivates the essence of the Santa Barbara lifestyle!

The deck and hot tub look out over the gorgeous mountains that turn purple at sunset. 5 minutes away you can walk on the beach, or sample the international flavor of downtown.

We are located in one of the rare places in Santa Barbara where there is no freeway or train noise. It is truly tranquil and quiet here.

The house is on 1.3 acres of privacy. We are up a long driveway and the house overlooks the Santa Barbara mountains.

(The Main House sleeps 6 people plus 2 on an air mattress. We prefer the Main House hold 6 adults maximum, plus 2 children. If you have more than 6 adults and need more bedrooms, we have a separate guest cottage, 1 bedroom+Loft, with a private courtyard on the property available for rent as well that sleeps 4 people. VRBO listing #426964. We offer a discount on the Cottage when the entire property is rented).

We have just planted 25 fruit trees and have started a bio dynamic vegetable garden. We are looking forward to sharing the bounty of fresh produce with our guests!

We live the alfresco lifestyle here. Large glass sliding doors open onto an expansive deck and grassy area. There is seamless living between the gleaming Douglas fir floors and the sunny space outside.

The bedrooms are on the second floor and all are sunny with views. We love comfort here, and know you do also.

All the beds have high quality mattresses, luxurious sheets, soft pillows and down comforters.

Enjoy the hot tub after a swim in the ocean, or with a glass of local wine under the stars.

There are 3 available off-street private parking spaces for guests of the Main House. The Cottage has 2 parking spaces.

We overlook the beautiful Santa Barbara mountains. It is idyllic and quiet here. All of the homes are on large lots which lends itself to an abundance of tranquility and privacy.

Our house is a bright, open and sunny contemporary style home. All of the floors in the living spaces are laid with warm Douglas Fir wood floors.

The house is spacious, with three sides of the downstairs opening up with glass doors to the outside deck, hot tub, and lawn, with a beautiful view of the Santa Barbara mountains beyond.

It sleeps 6 people comfortably in three bedrooms plus 2 in a comfortable queen travel bed. All beds are made up with down comforters and white luxury bed linens.

Please note that Santa Barbara is now on a water moratorium and our water prices have increased 103%. We have reflected this in keeping our prices the same, until your party exceeds 6 people. We then charge for the extra water usage. We hope to be back to regular water use this winter!

LOCATION

Santa Barbara is known as the American Riviera with a mild and sunny Mediterranean climate. The house is located in the beautiful enclave of Montecito in Santa Barbara.

Montecito is home to some of the most spectacular estates in the world, owned by celebrities such as Oprah Winfrey.

We have mountains with beautiful hiking trails and world class wineries, that meet miles of gorgeous coastline with sun-drenched beaches.

We have fantastic farm-to-table organic cuisine that pleases even the most discernible palate, while reflecting our commitment to sustainable living and agriculture.

The house within minutes of Downtown with its red tiled roofs. It is lined with shops, restaurants, art galleries, theaters, coffee houses, specialty groceries and a weekly farmers market.

Parking is easy where ever you go. Visit the Mission or the various adobe buildings that have been preserved downtown.

You can also head to Coast Village Road in Montecito for a relaxing sidewalk breakfast and coffee, then walk to the beach in front of the 5-Star Biltmore hotel on Butterfly Beach.

Take a winery tour to taste local wines in the afternoon and visit Solvang, our local “Danish Capital” where you can buy wooden clogs and eat aebleskivers, and take in an outdoor Shakespeare play while eating dinner on the lawn.

There is an abundance of outdoor activities including surfing, cycling, climbing, horseback riding and hiking that are available.

Cultural events occur all year-round with our local symphony, opera, ballet, theater, outdoor music and indoor venues boasting the best in entertainment.

THE HOUSE
All the rooms are bright and spacious. The bathrooms are big and sunny. Upstairs there are two full baths, one for the two guest rooms, and one attached to the Master bedroom. Downstairs there is a half bathroom.

The downstairs living space is surrounded by glass doors that open onto a long deck and a big grassy area. You feel as if you are perched on a private hill with 240 degree panoramic views.

We have a gourmet kitchen for you to cook in. There is a gorgeous granite kitchen island to put appetizers out and to enjoy a glass of local wine around. Sit around the long wooden dining table and enjoy the views and each others' company.

We look forward to having you here at StillPoint Sanctuary!
