Riviera Canyon - Views and Romance on the Upper Riviera
Situated high above the city lights and blue coastal waters of Santa Barbara, Riviera Canyon embodies a comfortable and relaxed style that invites guests into an unhurried appreciation of a slower pace. It is all about the views here, with newly renovated spaces that are fresh and welcoming. The owners of Riviera Canyon are the same clever owners who transformed another Paradise Retreats property, Riviera Cottage, into a truly special place, and have recreated much of the same ambiance in an even more ideal setting.
Entering the home, the Great Room is relaxed and comfortable. For added convenience, the sofa converts to a sleeper. French doors lead to the view deck just outside, where the southwest orientation of this wonderful home offers warm sunshine all day long, and amazing sunsets in the evening.
The Dining Room blends with the Family Room, where a stone top table seats 6 to 8 guests with ease. A sliding door leads to a private enclosed Patio with bistro table and barbecue.
Spacious and bright, the Kitchen has all the amenities needed for simple family meals or holiday entertaining, with an abundance of serving pieces and decorative dishes. A breakfast bar between the Kitchen and Living Room is the perfect perch to enjoy morning coffee and the daily news.
The Formal Living Room is bright and sunny, decorated with soft cotton fabrics in floral prints that give the space a romantic garden feel. The fireplace keeps things cozy and warm on chilly nights and adds the perfect amount of ambiance for fireside chats.
For those who enjoy al fresco dining on the Deck, the outdoor dining table seats 6-8 guests and provides stunning views of the adjacent canyon and city below. This expansive Deck also has an outdoor living room area with comfortable couches and shade umbrella. Step down into a separate and sunny area where chaise lounges invite sun worshipping and offer more great views. Below is yet another spot to perch and enjoy the sunshine and peaceful breezes that roll though the quiet canyon far below.
A large romantic Master Suite is a central feature of the home. A comfortable king-size bed is the focal point of this lovely room, with sliding doors opening to the Deck outside. The full Bath offers a large step-in shower.
The west facing Bedroom #2 is highlighted by a charming four-poster canopy bed with more sliding doors to the Deck. The quaint Bedroom #3 offers a queen-size bed. The hall Bathroom includes a shower bathtub combination.
With this Riviera location, guests are assured spectacular coastal views from sunrise to sunset. The bright lights of the city below will entice visitors to explore the busy nightlife of downtown.
The hillside landscape includes larger than life Century Agave plants and other indigenous flora. Exciting daytime activities can include hikes on nearby local trails, a day of shopping in the unique shops of State Street or visits to the historic Santa Barbara Mission or other local points of interest. It is important to note that there is no hiking or walking on the hillside or surrounding property below the home, but the foothills of Montecito and Santa Barbara offer amazing groomed trails to explore for hours.
Riviera Canyon is a perfect home base for venturing out to experience all that Santa Barbara has to offer. Or if you prefer, just 'kick back' and relax, and enjoy the calm and quiet of this hillside location. Wrap yourself in peaceful comfort, and accept this invitation to experience life on what has appropriately been named "The American Riviera."

Terrific Views and Comfortable Living
Second time renting this property, House is extremely well equipped, comfortable, and has beautiful views of city and ocean. Also faces beautiful canyon where several deer romp around daily.
Everything we Expected
The rental property was very well maintained - fully equipped with every possible kitchen utensil and appliance. Neighborhood was convenient and very quiet.
Views are spectacular. Not great for small children as there is no yard and a deck that is not child proofed. House is perfect for 1 or 2 couples, or 3 individuals.
Spectacular location in a world class city!
Having a large family coming into town for a wedding, we didn't really know what to expect when someone suggested using this service to locate a home. Needless to say, we were not disappointed!! You couldn't have asked for a better view - and the home was roomy and comfortable; well appointed and filled with all of the amenities that you would need for a long stay (even though ours was short!). We would definitely choose to stay here again. What was best, was that this was a high end property at a reasonable price! In a town where you pay a lot of money to stay at a modest motel, here you got a million dollar home and a million dollar view for the same price. This was a very pleasant surprise and great treat!!
Pictures do not do it justice
The unit exceeded our expectations. Very well equipped with everything our family needed for the week. The views of the city at night were amazing and the ability to have a enjoyable dinner on the deck was a highlight of the trip. The unit is well managed and the rental process was stress free.
Comfortable and inviting
Eight adults and one baby fit comfortably into this beautiful home without feeling a bit cramped. The view from the deck is a highlight. It was a wonderful retreat with the family.
Quiet, comfortable, amazing
When we first set fppt in the house everyone was just stunned. The interior designer/decorator did an amazing job everywhere. There are so many small things to discover, and averything just fits. The most stunning part is the outside terrace for sure. We enjoyed every breakfast outside (even when it was a bit chilly), just for the amazing view on Santa Barbara and the ocean. And the view gets even better at night. There was even a lot of wilflife (birds, deer, hummingbirds) do watch in the canyon.
The beds were good, and its unbelievable quiet at night. I always use earplugs at night when I`m at hotels, but there was no need here. There are some neighbors, but nothing to hear from them.
We didn`t use much of the amenities, just the gas fired fireplace and the basic kitchen stuff (fridge, coffee, toester) because tested the local restaurants in the evenings.
Overall we really enjoyed our stay there and would book again (it`s even cheaper then booking 2 hotel rooms in the area). Thanks for all.
