We moved to Santa Barbara in 1988 when our daughter was born, wanting a smaller, less hectic lifestyle than Los Angeles offered. Living here has been the smartest thing we've ever done - our 2 grown children love coming home and we've even lured a few of our Minnesota relatives out here.

KENNETH & LAUREN BERRIS purchased this house in 2001

Why KENNETH & LAUREN BERRIS chose Santa Barbara

After selling a larger home in Montecito where our children grew up, we downsized to this lovely property. It's perfect for getaways and celebrations. With views of the ocean and mountains you'll often catch us toasting the sunset in the evenings. Lots of places to sit and read outside on the beautiful courtyards and balcony. 3 TVs, a fireplace in the living room, lots of room to spread out and relax and a fully equipped kitchen - it's perfect for entertaining and celebrating.

What makes this house unique

Walking distance from downtown (about 1 mile) and to two restaurants recently mentioned as some of the best in the country (Las Agaves and La Taqueria Superica) give our location its special appeal. Flowers bloom around the courtyard, water splashes in our two fountains, and a gas fireplace in the living room make our home the perfect hideaway for you and your family.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We highly recommend this family. This was our first experience renting out our home and they left it as clean as we gave it to them. And although there were a couple of minor mishaps, they fixed them and also left a lovely bouquet of flowers for us.

lower rivera santa barbara

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely time in Santa Barbara, this property severed our needs well. The location was perfect for everything we did.

The Home is beautiful inside and out, we especially enjoyed all the great outdoor space. We needed a 4 bedroom house this one had 4 but you have to walk through the 4th bedroom to get to the upstairs, so this room isn't private and made it uncomfortable for the ones using it. Everything else in the home was perfect, lives large. Having 4 full Bathrooms was a Plus.

Kenneth met me and walked me through his home and shared all the happenings in the Santa Barbara area, Loved the Wine and goodies he left for us to enjoy. We would recommend this rental and would stay there again.

Everything that you want want in a vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

My experience renting this lovely home for our family of five (including an adult daughter and two teenagers) was perfect from beginning to end. The owners quickly responded to all of our inquiries and left detailed instructions/recommendations which enhanced our stay. This beautifully decorated home is located in a quiet neighborhood but is only minutes away from the downtown and beaches. The gorgeously landscaped patios and balcony were a great place to sip coffee or read a book. The comfortable couches and beds, fully equipped kitchen, three televisions, board games, and ample closet space further added to our enjoyment. I already miss our mountain view!

Our time in the Lower Riviera Refuge

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a marvelously enjoyable time in this wonderfully appointed refuge. What magnificent patio areas front and back, as well as the deck off the second floor master bedroom suite. We walked everywhere, including to the State Street boardwalk and the parks and beaches. Highly recommend to anybody seeking a house that can support some serious R&R.

Fantastic getaway

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home offers a peaceful, tranquil setting. The owners thought of everything to make our stay comfortable. The owners personally toured us through their beautiful home, which was appreciated. They made us feel like family, rather than guests. A binder was provided with helpful household information including how to work remotes for TV & VCR (which came in handy). A welcome note was left for us, as well with some delicious cookies & a bottle of wine. Nice touch. This home offers three tranquil courtyards with picture perfect landscape. Privacy provided by greenery & flowers. The bedrooms and beds were large and very comfortable. Driving to State Street shopping and night life, a 5 minute drive. Our family was very happy to be together making memories in this beautiful home.
