This private, serene 3BR/2BA vacation home, affectionately called Casa del Sol, is the perfect getaway with its great outdoor areas, beautiful gardens, panoramic ocean and mountain views, and a private hot tub. Walking distance to Santa Barbara Botanic Gardens and several hiking/biking trails off of Tunnel Trail, our sunlit house is located in the foothills of Santa Barbara and has spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean, coastal islands and mountain peaks. The living room has large floor to ceiling glass windows looking out to beautiful gardens, a four person hot tub, and a delightful ambiance. The combined kitchen/living room is spacious (36ft x 16ft) and has a fireplace and breathtaking mountain and ocean views. The adjacent dining area is an ideal place to watch the sunset or enjoy a family lunch. This space opens up to the back garden with outdoor dining and a gas grill. The master bedroom has a queen size bed and sliding doors which lead out to the patio and hot tub. The second and third bedrooms (queen and full) also have sliding glass doors, lots of natural light, and great views. There is also a separate home office with fax and free WiFi, but we doubt you will want to work when you’re in this paradise retreat. Please note propane is not provided for the grill and outdoor heater.
You will feel totally private in this retreat-like setting for a romantic holiday or Santa Barbara getaway. The property is located on a horseshoe street with no through traffic. The Santa Barbara Botanic Gardens are within walking distance, as are many hiking/biking trails off of Tunnel Trail. Mission Santa Barbara is only 1.5 miles away. The house is less than ten minutes from downtown Santa Barbara which is a very sophisticated, walkable town in the Spanish Colonial style with theaters, cinemas, and the type of restaurants and shops one usually finds only in large international cities.

We rented this home for our family of 5 adults to attend a wedding in Santa Barbara and it was wonderful. It was very clean and well equipped. The views from most windows are amazing including ocean views of the islands, mtns from the kitchen window, sunset from the street and city night lights as well! It's quiet, the beds are great and it's roomy, light and airy. Trader Joes and major grocery stores are just down the hill. Owners manual is clear and concise. We would love to return if we are in Santa Barbara again. We preferred to eat in at the home because it was so pleasant...
There were three couples in our party and the property suited our needs in every way. The house was clean and comfortable, the outdoor areas were enjoyable, and the views were excellent. The property management company was top notch - extremely professional and always available. We would not hesitate to rent this property again.
I rented this place for some friends and part of my bridal party, the weekend of my wedding. They loved it. As others have mentioned, the home was comfortable and clean. I would definitely recommend it to any one that wants to visit SB or wants to get a place for friends and family visiting the area. The place was easy to access and the property management company did a great job providing all needed information upfront.
We absolutely loved the property, nested just into the hills in Santa Barbara. It was clean and had nearly all the amenities we were looking for. And working with Turnkey Properties was really fantastic. We had a power outage our first night there and they got back to us with what was going on in the neighborhood, then called the next day to give us a Starbuck's gift card. The only downside is that the heat wave was in full effect in the area and the house has no air conditioning. The fans they did have meant our guests and us had three nights of little sleep with wet towels on our foreheads. But we still loved the property!!
The property manager was more than helpful.
The vacation rental was very clean.
I was more than happy with the location.
I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
We were here for a wedding weekend near the end of September. There was a heat wave and unfortunately, no air conditioning. We didn't think that it would be necessary at this time of the year, but it was hot.
Two couples just spent a lovely 4 days in this beautiful home. Everything was very comfortable and clean. This is a great house for entertaining as the kitchen was well equipped (except no dishwasher) and the dining table quite large. The front and backyards had plenty of room for resting/meditating and enjoying the lovely scenery (views of the water!!!). We really loved the hot tub which was big enough for four. The house also had a gas grill which we took full advantage of. The only downside was it was very hot the days we were in Santa Barbara, so the house was quite warm. There were a couple of fans but we would recommend that the owners have fans available in each room for times when the weather gets as hot as it did. Otherwise we would highly recommend and go back to enjoy again!!!
