About Candice

We have lived in Santa Barbara for 20 years, this city has captured our heart. We are a family of five and love swimming, hiking, biking, shopping and the farmers market.

Candice purchased this house in 2004

Why Candice chose Santa Barbara

We bought our home because we wanted a safe place for our children to grow up, a quiet neighborhood with beauty and charm. We love to spend our time in our yard, swimming, gardening, and sunbathing. When the sun starts to set dinner on the deck, light up the BBQ, the frogs start singing, the stars light up the sky, and we end the night with a dip in the spa taking it all in. Our children are having so much fun growing up here.

What makes this house unique

We feel lucky to get to surf and hike all in the same day, we take great pride in our home, its location. We feel lucky to be able to raise our family here and it would be our pleasure to share our paradise with you.

SB Gem: Immaculate home with every amenity

  • 5 of 5

Our Bay Area Family of five just spent an idyllic week at this lovely, well appointed, and well located home. We woke up every morning to fresh eggs from the hens that live on the property (so fun for our kids to feed them!), and spent the days biking the adjacent bike trail, exploring the downtown and beaches of Santa Barbara (a short drive away) and the afternoons floating in the pool or relaxing in the hot tub.

This super clean home has everything; soft and comfy sheets and beds you sink into with a sigh, fluffy towels, a well stocked kitchen, and the perfect floor plan for a family. The master suite/wing is a bonus with a fireplace and huge double shower and tub. At night when the kids went to bed, my husband and I felt like we were on a separate vacation!

For kids there is an idyllic rope swing, pool toys, craft supplies, and books to enjoy during the stay. And a large yard and outdoor ping pong table add to family fun time.

Thank you C and R for opening your home to us and being such wonderful hosts. We will definitely be back!

Amazing home in a beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 (4 adults, 3 kids ages 14, 12 and 3) spent a wonderful week at this home. I can honestly say that while there is a ton to do in Santa Barbara, we rarely left the house and the area nearby! The home is gorgeous and very well laid out. We used all 4 bedrooms, but never felt on top of one another. The kitchen is incredibly well equipped, and we ate the vast majority of meals at home. There is even a wine fridge! The pool and hot tub are amazing, and the pool has an easy to use cover so we were never worried with our toddler. The pool area and patio were great for reading and relaxing. There are bikes in the garage, and a 5 mile bike trail less than 100 yards from the house. This was also a plus for running, which we did daily! While this is a primary home (vs. used only for rentals), there was plenty of room for our belongings so we could fully unpack and embrace the space. And our girls LOVED that there were chickens and bunnies in the far back yard. The care was a cinch, and my girls loved feeding them each morning. Such a great stay, and we thoroughly enjoyed the home!

Fantastic Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great stay at this house. It's not only beautiful, spacious & close to everything, but has high end amenities and really feels like a home away from home. We used the pool every day & had a hard time getting the kids to even leave!

We've stayed in many homes through the years & this was by far our best stay yet.

I'd highly recommend this property!! Looking forward to coming again next year!

Charming, Luxury Cottage in great location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this home. It was very warm and inviting and had all the amenities.

It is well-located on a quiet road and has the charm of a high-end, country cottage.

A high-light for us was collecting chicken eggs each morning and sitting out on the lovely deck having a breakfast while overlooking the pool and grounds.

We also invested in electric bikes and enjoyed the bike path which is located just around the corner.

I would recommend this home to any couple —young or old—and to a family with kids.

The house is well done and landscaped beautifully.

It won’t disappoint.
