Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

AS FEATURED ON FINE LIVING CHANNEL

This is a peaceful Spanish Mission style home on a spectacular site with a large, private pool in the foothills of Santa Barbara. It has magnificent views, wonderful sunsets, and a tropical landscape that gives an exotic resort feeling.

The property is at the end of a private road with no through traffic.

This is a family home of English design professionals. With its tree house, pool and swings it is an ideal place for families.

However because of the residential neighborhood the property it is not suitable for loud groups wanting to party.

Mission Santa Barbara is only one and one-half miles away. It is less than ten minutes from downtown Santa Barbara which is a very sophisticated town in the Spanish Colonial style; a beautiful town to walk in. There are theaters, many cinemas, and the type of restaurants and shops one usually finds only in large international cities.

This artistic house is light, open, and comfortable. The combined kitchen/dining room is large, 26 feet x 16 feet. The adjacent poolside dining area is an ideal place to watch the sunsets or enjoy lunch sitting in swimsuits in the warm sunshine. The large living room, 20 feet x 25 feet, has a wood burning fireplace and wonderful mountain views. There is a home office and wireless internet. No smoking and no pets, please.

The Santa Barbara Botanic Gardens are within walking distance, as are many hiking trails.

Keywords: Private, tropical, views, large pool.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had such a relaxing, restful time. Your home is amazing. We loved it and Patricia was thrilled with everything especially after she found the knife sharpener!

Great Santa Barbara Experience

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful house that had everything we could have wanted - we fixed lots of meals there. The swimming pool is great with beautiful views of the mountains and toward the ocean. The grounds around the house are beautiful, it is like having your own personal botanical garden. The house also provides easy access to town and to beaches. If we ever get back to Santa Barbara, this is the place for us.

Very Quiet Property with Outstanding Views

  • 5 of 5

Retro Santa Barbara hills home is very private, quiet and comfortable with large living room, interesting artwork, and great views of the city below and ocean beyond. The house is on a very large piece of property with lots of succulents, paths to wander, and even a tree house. Hilary was very responsive and went out of her way to accommodate a couple of special requests we had. We didn't have time to enjoy the pool but it was nice to have it availalbe.

Incredible Property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a quiet family memorial for my father-in-law. He and his wife had lived just a few blocks away for 50 years before moving to a retirement community. He was 98 when he died, we took his ashes to a favorite hiking spot. Everyone who came up was so impressed by the 360 degree views and the eclectic décor. The owners were nearby and very helpful. Would highly recommend this property.

Casual, comfortable and convenient

  • 5 of 5

The property is nicely situated, close enough to downtown Santa Barbara and well placed for front range hikes, a trip to the Botanical Garden or to other areas of interest. Stunning views to the southwest, with lovely sunsets. The house was a good place for us -- 6 family members and friends for meals.

The property is very well described in the VRBO description. The owner's instructions on how to find the property (it's at the end of a private road) are accurate...and necessary. The owners are responsive and helpful, but did not need to do much as the house was well appointed, clean and ready for us when we showed up.

Our hosts: Hilary and Michael were outstanding. Our kids and grandkids were very happy. The pool and the lovely backyard became an extension of the of the house. We will be back!

Thanks Hilary and Michael
