Lovely Home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a lovely stay over the holidays, the home was modern yet totally comfortable, the location was ideal, the views were stunning, and getting to swim in a perfect pool on Christmas day was a great bonus. The hosts were gracious and helpful, meeting us at the home when we arrived and showing us around. A perfect stay in Santa Barbara, highly recommended.

This is a beautiful home with amazing views.

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful modern home with great views of Santa Barbara and the surrounding mountains. There were just two of us, so my husband and I used the guest bedroom with the television. We found the bed to be very comfortable. Janet the house manager was friendly and gave us good suggestions for resturaunts and events that were going on the week that we were there. We loved this house!

Beautiful Oasis in Santa Barbara

  • 5 of 5

The four of us savored every minute of our stay at this lovely, quiet and private property. We love to cook and we found the kitchen to be perfectly stocked and organized. The beds are super comfortable and the pool is heavenly. We loved sitting outside in the morning with coffee and the newspaper, sipping wine in the evening, and just taking in the great view. The home is perfectly situated to quickly get to great gourmet supermarkets, a wonderful independent book store, the beach, and lots of dining. Janet, the house manager, was super responsive and helpful. We'll definitely stay again!

Fabulous views over the valley

  • 4 of 5

This house has a very arty feel to it and has a lot of open space. The garden is beautiful, with large pool and veranda looking out onto the spectacular views of the valley. We had a nice stay in this house but I would say that it would probably more suited to a couple or couples sharing. The house was pristine and I was conscious of the children accidentally making a mess or dropping something during our stay.

Owner's Response: Andrew, Thank you for staying at the house and your review. Your family left the house in very good condition, and we appreciate the care you took to maintain its pristine look. We concur the house may be better suited to adults given the white carpet and furniture. Families continue to be drawn to our property because of the pool primarily, and our proximity to the ocean.
