Oak trees, an arboretum, 33 specimen roses, fruit trees, with expansive views from the large balcony overlooking your park like yard. Great for dogs, kids, and kids at heart.
2 minutes to Arroyo Burro/Hendry's Beach one of the very best in Santa Barbara, 5 mins to downtown, the Pier, the Wharf, State Street, Court House, and Mission. 10 minutes to the SB Airport next to UCSB.
The property we well maintained and very clean. Dogs are allowed, and great care is taken so you'd never know it! If you have a dog or dogs to bring along, they must be housebroken and not bark excessively.
There is a Zipline, tree swings, a Tarzan rope, cross train rope to climb, hammock, tetherball, and more--- and a lawn as big as a football field. It's a huge play land. FAMILIES WITH KIDS, and there are TONS OF TOYS AND GAMES FOR KIDS, inside too, for hours of entertainment.
The rental is a 2bedroom, 1 bath, with a wood burning fireplace, wood provided. There are extra linens and towels for ultra comfort during your stay, so you don't run out. HD TV's with DVD's in every room, high speed internet, and Cable TV.
The kitchen is made for cooks! All utensils for cooking and serving with platters and all, as well as a full kitchen of built in and counter appliances. It's well stocked with spices and basic pantry items, depending on other guests' use, but so much, so help yourself!
The property is very near an amazing expansive sandy beach, Hendry's, framed by beautiful cliffs. A Dog beach is on the left side, Boathouse Restaurant and miles of beach to walk on the right. The Wilcox/Douglas Preserve is 5 mins away, a great dog park overlooking the ocean.
The house is extremely private in a very rural area, which is unusual since it's close to the beach and downtown. No neighbors can see in. The lawn is about one acre and is bordered by 27 acres of wild land. It is mainly fenced.
Your top deck is huge for dining, relaxing and BBQ's. This deck has a gate to contain your dog for your stay in the house, so your pup can go in and out. This rental is above the yard and overlooks it for a breathtaking view. There is a flagstone staircase to take you on a garden walk down to the yard, with the huge lawn, the zipline, rope swings, and relaxing time in the hammock.
Upon arrival, you will see a Butterfly Garden with special plants to sustain the life cycle of the endangered Monarch Butterfly. Caterpillars, and Chrysalis and flying Monarch's abound. Hummingbirds visit daily!
The specimen trees are amazing! Pick fruit for you stay: apples, plums, avocados, oranges, lemons, peaches, loquats.
There is a specimen rose garden of 33 never to be bred again roses saved from a historic garden. Enjoy their beauty and cut them for your stay to fragrance your property.
This is an artist's house with original French impressionist oil paintings throughout. The scenes in the paintings are landscapes from the area.
For larger groups, there is a second unit below (the entire structure is built into a hillside. The second unit is VRBO 401412, and is a 2 bed/1 bath. The yard is shared with the unit below. The yard is as big as a park, so there is plenty of room. People often ask about the sharing of the yard, and from my experience as a vacation rental manager there isn't much crossover. Many travelers sightsee, but sometimes, with children, it's a great advantage if other children are nearby playing! The entry to each unit is completely separated, private, and you may not see the other party except maybe on the driveway, which is shared, or in the play land yard. The yard is as big as a park.
For a group, you can rent both units based on availability and a passage to open both up to one another will be made available.
For stays of 1 week or more, a housekeeper will come one of the days to clean and do wash and fold personal laundry, all included in the price.
The management of the unit is done by a good owner/manager, on site, with a 5 star rating.
Maximum occupancy for unit --- 6 people.
No students with wild parties. This is a special property for peaceful stays for romance, families, kids, puppies, reunions, but absolutely not a 'party' house.
Use of tree swings, ropes, hammock, zip line, all at your own risk, so parents tell your kids to be careful, and please supervise! It's a lot of fun for all, but be careful!
No events. No weddings.
Property is not childproofed inside or out. If you have a crawler, or toddler, please be advised that this property is not set up for the safety features necessary for young children. All electric is like a normal house - there are no toddler safety features added to this house, there is a fireplace not secured for kids, the deck outside was built before child safety codes, so openings in the fencing are larger than 4 inches apart.
NON SMOKING UNIT IN THE INSIDE, FEEL FREE TO SMOKE ON THE BALCONY AND OUTSIDE.

About the owner: I am an oil painting artist, a TV producer, and a You Tube Cooking host of the channel Rebecca Brand Recipes and Santa Barbara California - a tourist channel. I have managed another listing with a 5 star rating, so I'm very responsive and caring about my guest's stay. I went to UCLA, (MBA), and grew up in Northern California.
Why the Owner Chose Hidden Valley, Santa Barbara, CA, USA:
When I first saw this house I walked straight from the front door through the home as the breathtaking view drew me to the balcony. I was overwhelmed with emotion as I saw a park below (the huge lawn and trees!) that my children could play in. I had never seen, and still haven't seen a house central in Santa Barbara with an expansive yard like this property has.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house is unique for it's large parcel of land, yet a moment from the beach. It's ultra private. I watch birds, hummingbirds, robins, little yellow canaries, fly through the garden every day when I'm there.
