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 two-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.

Why Caroline Plasencia chose Mission Canyon
We instantly fell in love with this property because of the beautiful views and grounds –two 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.

The views from the guest suite are breathtaking and the accommodations were very comfortable and spacious for my family of 4 for 5 nights. The location is a very short drive to downtown, yet far enough away to feel a sense of calm in such a peaceful setting. Our 2 school aged children enjoyed the pool, tree swings, and greeting the goats and dogs. Caroline and Mike were incredibly kind and wonderful hosts. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to return.
A perfect place for a relaxing vacation.
A wonderful, peaceful place, yet handy to all the major sites. Well appointed and equipped, with a wonderful view. Owners are a lovely couple. Highly recommend this place for your visit to Santa Barbara.
Location, location, location (and a goat)
This place is incredible. We went with our kids and, while we didn't take advantage of the pool and hot tub, the kids enjoyed hanging out with a sweet goat and swinging from a beautiful old tree.
Not only is the view spectacular, everything you might want to do is conveniently located. The owners are also lovely, super nice people who welcomed us warmly and responded quickly to questions that we had. We'll return for sure.
Very relaxing retreat for a couple or small family
We were very comfortable and loved the views and pool. Close to everything yet felt so remote like our private resort. Caroline and Mike were very accommodating
The place is clean and that modern look with welcoming appeal is spot on. Gorgeous sorrounding too!
The whole experience summoned all those artistic inspirations flowing. Goatie was an excellent model for my husband’s sketches and I thoroughly enjoyed the swing and the early morning stroll about the property. Those Santa Barbara sunsets were spectacular!
Wonderful place to stay
The property is fantastic and Caroline is the consummate host! I highly recommend it.
Mission Canyon has a rural setting only minutes from downtown and the beach. On one side you have the majestic mountain range; on the other you have the ocean, island and city views. It has everything.
