Enjoy gracious indoor and outdoor living in our updated ranch-style home, with a guest house included! We are very centrally located in beautiful Santa Barbara, 3 miles from the beach and less than that to downtown. We sit just below the gorgeous foothills with great hiking trails within walking distance. The neighborhood is quiet and safe yet you can walk to the grocery store, restaurants, and the fantastic local bookstore. Just 30 minutes away is the stunning Santa Ynez Valley with world class wineries and restaurants.
The kitchen is a cook's dream with a large Wolf range, Sub Zero refrigerator, warming drawer, two sinks, espresso maker and barbecue outside.
The guest house has living space, bedroom, full kitchen and 1 and 1/2 bathrooms. Great for parents, in-laws or staff. Please inquire if guest house only is desired.
We have a large yard with lots of space to relax, read, swim and play in our heated pool. Clean off the sand in our outdoor shower after the beach. Kids will feel right at home in the kids' playhouse!
San Roque is a lovely neighborhood just north of downtown that has a mix of Tudor, Spanish Colonial, and Ranch style homes. We enjoy a microclimate that tends to be be sunny and warm when the beaches are still foggy. There are parks, shopping centers and restaurants within walking distance.
Just minutes away are our beautiful beaches where you can surf, stand-up paddle board, swim, kayak, or just soak up the sun!

I came here for a destination wedding. Stayed with my family and brother's family. Plenty of space. Liked the fact that there was separate guest room. Bummed we didn't use the pool but it looked inviting. It was close to town but tucked back in a beautiful neighborhood with lots of trees.
Great home for a family getaway!
This is a lovely home with perfect ammenities.
The pool is terrific. And there is even a complete guest house on the property. Highly recommended for a family getaway. Only drawback was no air conditioning (but plenty of cross circulation) in guesthouse.
Great time in Santa Barbara
We had a great time in Santa Barbara. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood. The house is very conveniently located to the beach and to State street. The pool is great and the chickens were a blast. The kitchen is well equipped and was easy to use. The only negatives that we found were that the master bedroom does not have an en suite bath. The bath is in the hallway and is the main bath for the main house. The second negative is the guest house is not air conditioned. It was very warm during the day and it took a long time to cool down. Everything else was great and I would recommend this house.
Thank you so much for your feedback. Unfortunately, Santa Barbara was experiencing unseasonably warm weather during your stay. The guest house usually stays very cool, and cools down even more at night. We have since purchased a portable air conditioner for the guest house to avoid this in the future.
Perfect setting for a family get-together. We thoroughly enjoyed our week - seven family members ranging in age from 15 to 75. Great pool, plenty of conversation/sitting areas. Lots to do in the greater Santa Barbara area.
