About the property

Two-story, 3,450 sq' home, 3 bedrooms, 4 baths, mountain views.

This 3,450 square foot, two-story home is centrally located in Santa Barbara and has beautiful mountain views. The lower level was remodeled within the last 5 years, with new hardwood floors, paint, and kitchen.

The $5,500 per month rent includes the utilities. A pet would be considered but the yard is not fully fenced. The garage is not included.

Downstairs, the formal living room is a south-facing, bright and sunny room gracefully appointed with plush furnishings in a quiet palette of sky blue and earth tones, all complimented by a gas fireplace.

The adjoining dining area, which faces the mountain views, has a generously-sized dining table and a buffet that is filled with table cloths and dinnerware. The kitchen and informal dining areas have newer, custom cherry cabinets and cesarstone counter tops, and is fully stocked with everything you need for cooking. The kitchen is complete with a gas stove and oven, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, garbage disposal, hot and cold filtered water, and a planning desk.

The den/movie room has a large TV with Apple TV. It also has a futon that opens to a double size bed and can sleep one or two people.

The game room is the largest room in the house and has a ping pong table and game table, plus an extra futon.

There is a laundry room off of the kitchen.

Upstairs, there are 3 bedrooms and 3 baths. The master suite is the largest bedroom with a queen-sized bed, and has a separate sitting area and fireplace, two balconies (one to the south and one to the north), television with cable, and a dressing area has a fold out twin bed, and there is a full bathroom.

The front, south-facing bedroom is generously sized with a queen size bed, television with cable, and has a full bath across the hall.

The rear bedroom is a suite that has its own attached bathroom and two twin beds, which can also be put together to make a king.

The entire home is on wifi, there are telephones for local calls, and has gas heat, air conditioning, and a water softener. There is an attached garage but it is not included in the rental. There is room in the driveway for two cars to park side by side, and off-street parking as well. The front porch is covered and has bench seating.

Originally built in 1969 and still owned by the original family, the style of the home is ranch and with stucco exterior and a tile roof. This home has much to offer and is ready to be enjoyed by friends and families.

Wonderful Santa Barbara stay

  • 5 of 5

This is the 4th year our family gathered for a post-Christmas reunion at this home. Wonderful location with a stunning mountain view. The house has lots of room and is very clean and well kept. Four of us are sisters who were born and raised in SB, so this is a "coming home" experience. We are sad that a city ordinance will require a 30-day minimum stay from now on.

What a fantastic property!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for our son's wedding weekend, and this home was very well appointed, clean and perfect for our needs. Folks had plenty of privacy while also providing wonderful common areas for eating, talking, games, etc. The master suite is very large, and the upstairs bedrooms are spacious -- each with their own bathroom. The views off the back of the property are wonderful. The owner is very easy to work with and attentive to renters' needs.

Unfortunately we were there for my brother-in-laws memorial service but Vicky's home gave our family an opportunity to all be together at this time.

It was perfect in every way and we plan on returning again under much happier circumstances ....

Perfect home for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this home in Santa Barbara. The spacious floor plan accommodated our family very well. The teens loved the ping pong table, card table and piano in the game room. The adults gathered in the beautiful backyard( backs up to a green belt) or front room. The large kitchen is laid out well and with the bar, table and another table in the dining room it was easy to feed everyone. We found everything we needed and more. Including crock pots, pots and pans, serving dishes, spices ect. Vicky was very friendly & helpful yet didn't hover or make us feel like we were being watched. The home is located in a quite neighborhood on a hill yet it is only a few minutes drive to the beach, the zoo, & shopping. Everything was clean. There were plenty of towels and bedding. The master suite has a beautiful collection of classic books. Loved having the washer and dryer to wash swim suits and towels after a day at the beach. This was the perfect vacation home for our family! (Bring your own reusable grocery bags~ Stores in this area charge you if you need any type of bag~even paper~ to carry your groceries out of their stores. Baby oil takes tar off of your feet ;) )

Great house in beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family. We all had a wonderful time. The kitchen was large and well stocked so we had some great meals during our stay. We seated 10 people at the dining room table without a problem. The backyard was fantastic with great views. It was nice to relax out there after a busy day of activities. Vicky, thank you so much for making our family vacation a great success.

Car: recommended

Bel Air Knolls is a hilltop neighborhood centrally located 5 minutes away between the ocean and the 101 freeway, and 7 minutes from Downtown, and Uptown, and is very close to the Mesa. A very short car drive on city streets will take you to the beach, foothills and mountains, restaurants, shopping, and many of the beautiful sight-seeing opportunities Santa Barbara has to offer.
