Why the Owner Chose Cielito, Santa Barbara, CA, USA:
After a worldwide search for the perfect destination for active retirement, we found Paradise in Santa Barbara.

The home, cottage and town has everything needed for active retirement while providing visual beauty and intellectual stimulation. We can help YOU relocate too!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The varied view of coastline, ocean, night lights and mountains is unique. You will enjoy being away from the fog which is typical at the beach until noonish. You'll be away from the noise and dense neighborhoods, instead, revel in the quiet heart of hiking/biking/paragliding areas, and still close-in (10 minutes to beach, 5 minutes to mission, 10 to galleries, museums, shopping, theater, etc.), enjoying Santa Barbara which is a world-class vacation destination, and finding space and nature to enjoy and relax. Within just two separate detached resident buildings on this gated estate away from the crowds, you can rest assured of privacy, whether for your honeymoon, a healing retreat or filming a Hollywood movie (yes, its been done, quietly). And, after 20 years in luxury resort management and catering to discerning guests, we truly enjoy sharing our piece of paradise. We can also facilitate concierge service and share info about the hidden gems in the region beyond that shown in your rental, its deck, gardens, and hot tub.
