About the owner: We are artists, business owners, software developers and currency traders. We have each lived in Santa Barbara for over 35 years and have owned retail gift stores, restaurants and bakeries in that time. We love this town and have carved out a very special area of it for you to call home during your visit. We have lived in many areas of Santa Barbara, Montecito and Carpinteria - yet find Mission Canyon, where we now live, to be one of the best places in the entire area. When other parts of the coast are foggy and cold, our little piece of paradise basks in warm sunlight. We love being close to downtown, UCSB (The University of California Santa Barbara) and the Music Academy of the West in Montecito - so all the cultural wealth of the town is easily within reach.
Why the Owner Chose Mission Canyon (Santa Barbara, CA, USA):
Mission Canyon is known as one of the best places in Santa Barbara because it's almost always sunny here, far enough from the beach to avoid the morning fog and close enough to the mountains for great hikes & day trips. It's also close enough to downtown that you can easily walk to all the great shops, theaters and restaurants Santa Barbara has to offer.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
We think of our property as an evolving, living spiritual abode, and we are constantly 'feeding' it with our creative energy, as we bring more artistic inspiration into every aspect of it. We often have garden groups come for private tours - even the docents of the famous Lotusland in Montecito - and artists from around the country come to see what lies 'behind the magic gates'.
