Why The Owner chose Santa Barbara

We fell in love with Santa Barbara and realized our dream by acquiring this fantastic view home with a swimming pool. We've spent many happy days here with friends and family and now also enjoy sharing it with our guests.

What makes this house unique

Our guests call it a mini resort because of the privacy of the location, and the many separate areas of the property.

The view is the main event, but the pool area (also with an ocean view) is an easy second. The open air pool house with 1/2 bath offers a shaded alternative to relax, read or play board games while others swim.

So peaceful you can't help but relax here. A barbecue on the rear patio is a must as is a crackling wood fire in the cool evenings! A stroll in woodsy rear yard beyond the patio is fun way to explore and also see the fantastic views.

The spacious and private location affords guests secure off street parking and a feeling of seclusion rare in this close to town Rivera location.

Wonderful Home!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time at your beautiful home. The kitchen was well stocked, the pool was perfect, and the beds were very comfortable. However, the view from the deck and outdoor space is second to none! The home was perfect for the three of us, as we only used the upper level. However, it would be great to host a large group as well. The above grade basement is a great set up for another family/additional kids. The home sits high above town, but it was only a ten minute drive to the beach. We will be back!!!!

Perfect House and Wonderful Host

  • 5 of 5

I apologigize profusely becuase this review is LONG OVERDUE. My friends (4 women) and I stayed at Charlie amd Pat's wonderful home from October 8-12, 2015. Three of us suprised our friend with a trip to Santa Barbara for her birthday (she's always wanted to go to Santa Barbara). The House is exactly as described if not better. It's clean, has lots of space especially when four women are getting ready in the morning and the views from every room are amazing especailly at night. The house is a short driving distance to everything you need and want (shopping, grocery store, beach, restaurants and nightlife). It was very hot in October which made having the big pool a real plus. The pool area is large, relaxing, private and a was a huge hit. The house has all the amenities you will need including a fully stocked kitchen for cooking (pots, pans, silverware, glassware, plates, spices and etc). The house is located in a very nice quiet neighborhood, we all felt very safe. I had the plesure of dealing with Charlie while booking the trip. Charlie was very responsive, answered all my questions wihtout making me feel as if I was bothering him, he treturned my deposit quickly, made booking this trip very easy and stress free and is a very nice gentleman. Thank you so much Charlie and Pat for opening your home to VRBO for us vactioners who enjoy all the comforts of home while being on vaction. We would definately book this house again and I would recommend this house to anyone who wants an enjoyable stay in Santa Barbara.

Glorious View, Spacious Home, Fabulous Poo - Great for Family

  • 5 of 5

Our family of two children, two parents and a grandma had a fabulous time at Charlie and Pat's beautiful home. The view is breathtaking from almost every room (including the bathroom!). The house had all typical amenities and was neat and comfortable. There is a great master, two large bedrooms downstairs, and the office acted as the fourth bedroom for my 10-year-old son. They have an extensive DVD library and loads of board games if you get tired of swimming in the lovely pool. The location is close to State Street, but also nicely tucked in the hills so you feel you're above it all when you're ready to chill. The decks are well appointed with lots of chairs/tables, and did I mentioned the VIEW!!! Charlie was super responsive and even stocked the kitchen with some welcomed snacks and wine when we arrived. I highly recommend the house!

Absolutely Wonderful Christmas!

  • 5 of 5

This house was such a wonderful surprise! Perched high above the neighboring homes this house has views of the city and harbor that are amazing and interesting. Pat and Charlie were gracious hosts and even decorated the house and left a bottle of wine for us. The house is clean, beds comfortable, kitchen has everything ( and more)needed to cook a Christmas dinner, great fireplace with wood supplied. Location is private and quiet yet close to the downtown attractions. We could have stayed at the house all day, just admiring the view! We will be back! Thank you!

Great Find on The Riviera

  • 5 of 5

This house and location cannot be beat. The owners have thought of everything - fully stocked kitchen, BBQ, games, puzzles, TVS (which we never even turned on) and plenty of seating inside and out. The beds are very comfortable and there are plenty of towels for the house AND pool. The pool is located in a protected area of the large property. We were even able to use it over Thanksgiving weekend due to the option of having the heat turned on. The views are spectacular in every direction both day and night. Our family of 5 adults and 2 small children had a most

memorable time. We are long time and previous residents and vacation renters in Santa Barbara and this property is definitely on our repeat list. It was a pleasure dealing with Charles who was most attentive and responsive to our requests and questions. We even received out deposit back within hours of checking out!
