Welcome to Casa Foresta, a unique Santa Barbara experience tucked away in the heart of the stunning Mission Canyon area, yet minutes away from all that Santa Barbara has to offer!
Newly renovated, eco-friendly, and bursting with nature at every turn, this two-bedroom, two- bath home has everything you need for a romantic getaway, extended stay, or creating family memories. Located on a private drive off of Mission Canyon, Casa Foresta backs up to Rocky Nook Park, a local favorite for peaceful walks surrounded by California Oaks and nature galore. A 10-minute walk will bring you to the historic Old Santa Barbara Mission. Pack a picnic lunch and walk across the street to the public rose garden, where you'll find people taking in over dozens of rose varieties, lounging, or tossing a frisbee. Another 15 minute walk and you're at Alice Keck park, a favorite spot for turtle watching and strolling through the gardens. Across the street is Kids World, a dream come true playground for the young ones. Downtown Santa Barbara, with iconic State Street, is minutes away, with more restaurant choices and shopping than you can imagine! Step out into the Funk Zone, SB's trendy wine, beer, and restaurant zone, or take the house umbrella and chairs to the beach for the afternoon! The Botanical Gardens and well-traveled Inspiration Point hiking trail are also a stones-throw away.
If you'd rather stay close to home, enjoy the privacy of three patios of your choice, read under the shade of the surrounding oaks, happy hour poolside on the sun drenched patio, cozy up to the warm fire from the chimenea, barbecue, swim, and above all, relax. The native landscaping attracts hummingbirds and butterflies. Huge natural boulders dot the property; there are new discoveries at every turn!
Once inside, you'll feel right at home. The newly-remodeled kitchen with its many amenities is a chef's delight, and is part of a great room with an entertainment system, vaulted ceilings, and a big bright skylight ceiling. There are two roomy bedrooms one with a full-sized bed one off the living room with an entrance to one of the patios and one with queen-sized bed up the cool spiral staircase. There are two twin air mattresses for your use in the home as well.
We invite you to nestle and cozy into Casa Foresta, for your memorable Santa Barbara vacation!
