Vista Dorinda is located on once acre at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac in Montecito. There are four bedrooms: one king, two queens and a children's bunk room. The home has a perfect set up for a family vacation. When the weather is lovely, eat outside on the patio and enjoy the tranquility of the area. In addition to the four bedrooms, the house has a living room, dining room, kitchen, laundry and office. As well, there is an outdoor grill. Explore the grounds and play bocci, or just relax in shade while reading a book.

Marci Symington purchased this house in 2003
We fell in love with this property for its accessibility to the Upper and Lower Villages of Montecito, while at the same time being peaceful and remote. We wanted to find a piece of property that would give us a feeling of seclusion, and the house is perfectly situated on an acre of land next to the retirement community of Casa Dorinda. Since we have a nice view of the belltower of Casa Dorinda, we have playfully dubbed the house Vista Dorinda.
My extended family enjoyed a beautiful week at Vista Dorinda near Santa Barbara last summer. We were immediately comfortable in the spacious, beautifully decorated home. Upon first glance we thought we had stumbled into a page out of Architectural Digest! All the appointments are top notch and the kitchen is fit for a picky chef. I've stayed in many VRBO's over the years and have never seen one with all the nice amenities as this one. Everyone was looking at the sheets to figure out the brand so we could buy them at home. The rooms were very comfortable and our younger gals even enjoyed the bunk beds. The weather was stunningly beautiful and this wooded lot with inviting outdoor dining allowed us to enjoy the week listening to the birds during all our meals. With this prime location we walked to many places, including the 4th of July town parade and afterparty as well as the beach a time or two. I would go back in a heart beat!!!!
Located in between the upper and lower villages of Montecito, Vista Dorinda is a quiet retreat down a private lane that is near all the major attractions of Santa Barbara and Montecito, and only a 45 minute drive from the beautiful vineyards of Santa Ynez valley. The drive from the Santa Barbara airport is only 20 minutes, and two hours from Burbank and Los Angeles airports. Winter is a perfect time to enjoy whale watching, while in the summer take advantage of the long days to soak in the sun on the various nearby beaches. Take long hikes on the mountain trails, only a few miles away, and take in the spectacular views of the coastline. There is so much to do...or so little, if that is your goal.
