About Jennifer Jory

We both went to college in Santa Barbara and always wanted to return and our dream has come true with our vacation home.

Jennifer Jory purchased this house in 2013

Why Jennifer Jory chose Lower Riviera

The views were what we have always dreamed of and the location is amazing as it is a 10 minute walk to State Street and right around the corner from the Mission and its spectacular grounds.

What makes this house unique

The charm of the Riviera inspires us to find new walks and hikes along old public stairs and trails that meander throughout the Riviera. The historic sites and parks are an attraction as well, not to mention the newly renovated El Encanto hotel & restaurant that is just 2 blocks away.

Tranquil Santa Barbara Gem!

  • 5 of 5

Such a sweet home in such a peaceful neighborhood. This was the perfect place to unwind and relax, far above the city lights of bustling Santa Barbara, just a short stroll to the Mission or beautiful El Encanto. If you want quick access to the beach and city but a refuge away from it all, this is the spot! Cozy and charming. We have stayed all over Santa B and Montecito. Our favorite neighborhood by far!

Santa Barbara Lower Riviera Home

  • 5 of 5

Tucked into a hillside neighborhood, this house is fully equipped with two full bedrooms, two bathrooms and an enchanting cabin in the back garden. The open kitchen is built to entertain and to comfortably prepare any of your meals. The living area is composed of a grand room where dining room, kitchen and indoor living area combined provides a pleasant, relaxing atmosphere to share and engage in one or many conversations, yet also allowing you to retreat in a chaise lounge and read your favorite book. From the living room you can step outside into a fabulous deck overlooking the east side of the city and the ocean. Just a few blocks away, is Franceschi’s park, an 18-acre park donated to the city by a renowned horticulturist by that name. We drove up to the park to see the full moonrise, to find out the next day that it’s equally enjoyable (if not more) to watch it right from the house’s deck while you sip on a glass of wine with homemade h’ordeuvres. A separate gated terrace sits on the right side of the property as you step out of the main door, providing a perfect place to take in the view while being undisturbed by others. We highly recommend staying at this property. It’s a quick drive into town, the harbor and many of the beaches. We really enjoyed Santa Barbara from this private haven. It is home away from home, which is why we’re coming back again this spring. Whether it’s a UCSB graduation, a wedding, or just because–staying at this lower Riviera home in Santa Barbara is great for a romantic getaway, a family reunion or a vacation with friends.

Beautiful serene view

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this very comfortable and charming home. We were able to check into the house early which was a life-saver after a very early morning and long drive. The home is beautifully decorated and kitchen was easy to cook in and serve my family. The house provides private eating/entertaining in the backyard and two front patios. The ocean view from the master bedroom, living room and front decks are gorgeous. The beds were super comfortable. This was our second time here and would loved both visits.

Santa Barbara Gem!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this wonderful home. It was beautifully furnished and very comfortable. We really enjoyed the spectacular view. Lounging on the front patio and watching the sunrise and sunset was such a treat. The neighborhood was very quiet and well maintained. This property was also in close proximity to all the sights, great restaurants and beaches that made it very convenient. The elegant and five-star Belmond El Encanto Hotel is within walking distance about two blocks away. We actually dined under the stars on the terrace of this hotel restaurant and it was a wonderful and unforgettable experience. We would definitely recommend this property!
