Designed by Michelle Kaufmann, an award-winning green architect, and located on Santa Barbara’s Upper East Side, the Upper East Retreat is located in a safe and quiet residential neighborhood within walking distance of the historic Santa Barbara Mission and Rose Gardens. Explore State Street with a bike ride or leisurely stroll to the downtown area. Or bask in the sunshine in the beautiful backyard, where indoor space and outdoor living effortlessly merge into an idyllic backdrop for the ultimate Santa Barbara getaway.
With recent articles in Seasons Magazine and Better Homes and Gardens, this eco-friendly home has earned substantial praise from the press for its “green” construction and design. Multiple indoor and outdoor seating areas create a wonderful environment for families and friends to gather and enjoy each other’s company. Beautiful, brand new furnishings and original artwork accent the modern contemporary aesthetic of this spectacular Santa Barbara home.
Pets are welcomed at this home with appropriate screening and accompanying pre-authorization.
At InvitedHome, we aim to please. But because many Santa Barbara homes do have minimum stays, we may not be able to accommodate your preferred length of visit. However, current schedules and bookings change all the time. So please don't hesitate to reach out to a vacation consultant to discuss your desired dates today!
