Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Upstairs the master bedroom provides a panoramic view of the former Ocean Meadow golf course* and beyond that the Ellwood Mesa Preserve. The guest bedroom, with two single beds, has views of the Santa Ynez Mountains. The full bath has recently been remodeled with tumbled stone details.
Community pool and spa.

This is a non smoking unit.
This condo is verified by UCSB's KITP.
*On March 14, 2012 the Trust for Public Lands (TPL) announced it was in negotiations to acquire the Ocean Meadows Golf Course. Once escrow in completed, expected to be after October, 2012, the land will be transferred to UCSB's Cheadle Center for Biological Diversity and Ecological Restoration. As stated on the TPL website:
'The Trust for Public Land is working alongside the California State Coastal Conservancy and the University of California at Santa Barbara to purchase the Devereux Slough and restore it to its natural splendor.
Located at the eastern gateway to the Gaviota Coast, Ocean Meadows is the final acquisition in an open-space strategy known as the Joint Proposal that will link more than 600 acres of land together for people and wildlife to use and enjoy. When it is restored, the site will be used for environmental education, research and gentle recreation.'
Restoration is expected to commence in 2017.
However, both the Glen Annie and the ocean front Sandpiper Golf Courses are within 3 miles of the condo.

About the owner: Born during Fiesta, I would roll my eyes when my Dad said 'this is the most beautiful place in the world'. Having now lived abroad and traveled extensively my husband and I have to agree Dad was right. We love it here and take pride in our hometown. We are now raising the 4th generation of south coast locals. We would love to share it with you as we know you too will fall in love.

The condo provides a perfect balance between quiet country with city closeness. Steps from 100s of acres of public nature preserve and uncrowded beaches yet only a few miles from the airport, UCSB, shops, restaurants, movies theaters.
