Luxurious home located in the hills with a beautiful view of the ocean. The home accommodated our families and grandchild, providing comfortable place to live while swimming in the over sized pool.
The home had numerous amenities including a chef's kitchen, large den, and game room downstairs by the pool, allowing our family to watch a football game while swimming.
Ten minute drive to numerous restaurants & grocery stores in Montecito, thus very convenient. The pictures of the home were accurate, and reflects a "show place".
We have been fortunate in staying at VRBO properties throughout the US and Europe. The Babcock House has to rank as one of our favorite locations! We all know, when you get family an/or friends together, the people are the main reason whether it is a ' 'wonderfully' memorable occasion or, not as much. It does help if you have a wonderful 'character' residence with comfy beds, a big enough fridge, awesome cooker (as well as high capacity BBQ) and plenty of space to either gather, or have some alone time with a good book (paperback or iPad). Well if you're looking for these things, then this is the property for you! I forgot one last important item helpful and charming hosts, which Lisa certainly was!
We had two families, totaling 10, between the age of 18 and 'older'. We hadn't seen each other for some time, we left CA for GA three years ago and our very good friends moved to OR 6 months ago. We have known each other for 21 years. Most importantly all the kids got back together, with their respective partners and the venue became a marvelous backdrop for 5 days of reminiscing, catching up and making some new wonderful family memories.
Highly recommend this location!
