Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath Suite, Sleeps 4 - 5

Located in the hills above the city, you are only 1.2 miles from State Street, (the main artery for shopping and restaurants) and four miles to the beach, pier and art walk. The closest stores and restaurants are less than 1.5 miles away, though you may feel nicely removed from the city in this hilltop suite surrounded by spectacular views of the ocean, islands, mountains, oak trees, plenty of nature and by night - a span of glittering city lights visible through nearly wall-to-wall french doors that lead to a private stone-paved patio. Enjoy the morning views of rolling hills, orchards and mountains that look like the Tuscan countryside.

Charming pathways lead you a large, solar-heated pool, spa and 'petting zoo' of one very friendly goat. The zoo is located at the farthest end of the fully-gated three-acre property.

This one bedroom suite plus curtained alcove with daybed has been newly remodeled and designed to be light, refreshing, airy, stylish and comfortable. Romantic for a couple and cozy for a small family – it sleeps up to five. Feel your spirits lift the moment you walk in the door.

ASK ABOUT our LAST-MINUTE-BOOKING SPECIAL RATE. If you make a last minute booking ( up to 7 days before the stay) I will offer you a discounted price TBD. Thank you for looking!

About Caroline Plasencia

Caroline Brand is an art director, graduate of Art Center College of Design who sometimes works from home and sometimes travels. She shares her home with her husband and dogs, rabbits and goats. We are empty-nesters.

Caroline Plasencia purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Caroline Plasencia chose Mission Canyon

We instantly fell in love with this property because of the beautiful views and grounds –nearly three acres of nature. We always call it our bit of heaven. We named our suite the 'Tuscan Vista' because of the rolling hills and the orchards that lead up to the mountains. You will feel you are in a rural setting but everything is just a few minutes away.

What makes this apartment unique

Glorious views everywhere, peaceful setting, newly remodeled suite with brand new appliances and furniture. Bird-watching and stargazing. Kids and adults will love the pool (nice and warm), hot tub and plenty of yard (fully gated) in which to play, visit the goat, swim and be creative. Outdoor seating and lounging provided. The suite is all one level from off-street parking to your suite - only one step. There is a bathtub/shower combination. A very clean suite with comfortable mattresses and linens. There is a daybed (twin) alcove that can be made private by closing the curtains and a sleeper sofa full/queen in living room. It is bliss.

Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

This home feels like heaven on earth, it is so beautiful! Everything about our stay was absolutely perfect. The home itself is roomy and clean and had everything we could need or want. My kids and I adored the goat and the dogs and Mike and Caroline are the sweetest people you'll ever meet. Their property is absolutely stunning with its tree swings and orchards and incredible views. I can't say enough good things about it, we loved every minute there and can't wait to go back!

Owner's Response: This is one of the sweetest reviews - thank you. We love that we can offer a clean, safe and beautiful retreat for our guests. We love all of our children and knowing that they can freely explore and enjoy nature is the ultimate reward for doing VRBO. We would love to have you and your precious family anytime. All good things, Caroline and Mike

Perfection

  • 5 of 5

Perfection. I’m sorry for such a bold description, but it’s true. Caroline and Mike are the perfect hosts. They make you feel that it’s your beautiful home not theirs. Really. Then there is the hilltop setting for amazing sunsets from your own private veranda. And the smartly designed, immaculate suite, the hot tub, and a full length pool to swim real laps in. A REAL FIND.

Amazing hilltop location - beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Caroline and Mike are wonderful hosts, they couldn't do enough to make sure we had a fantastic stay. Both the property and the location were perfect with amazing views both inland and across the city. This was an ideal place to both relax and spend time exploring Santa Barbara and the area. Thank you both!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. We enjoyed hosting you and your family and so glad you all had fun. Thank you for your very kind words about me and Mike. We really do enjoy meeting people and seeing them enjoy the grounds is rewarding. Our kids have grown so seeing precious children laughing and having fun is joyful for us. Also, thank you for your "thank you" note. Very sweet and we love getting them. :) We certainly hope you will be back! Warmly, Caroline and Mike

Pure perfection in every way

  • 5 of 5

So much to say but the highlights are that this property and the owners are just an amazing place to stay. We fed the goats almost daily because our 4-year old loved it. We swam in the pool surrounded by gorgeous views (felt like France or Italy) everyday. The dogs on property were super sweet and well trained. We bought them a bag of treats so they would visit everyday just so we could have the dog experience while on vacation. The property itself is well-appointed including coffee, condiments, beach towels, and everything you need to cook a meal (which we did quite a bit). Mike and Caroline are fantastic hosts and are around if you need them but you have total privacy at the same time. Loved it here. Our daughter now wants to move to Santa Barbara. :)

Owner's Response: Hi Shivani, Thank you for your kind words and the glowing review. We are so thankful for the wonderful experience we get from hosting. Your family makes it all worthwhile. I am glad to hear your daughter had fun with the goats and the property - she was so charming. I thoroughly enjoyed talking to her and eating her yummy foods made in her kitchen. ;) We do hope you will move to Santa Barbara. It would be great to have you in the community! Thanks again and hopefully we get to see you again! Warmly, Caroline & Mike and all of the critters!
