Overview

Summerland House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, sleeps 10

Perched on the scenic hillside in Summerland, Summer Hill Retreat is a contemporary jewel on the coast just south of Montecito. In 2012, this 2-story home was completely redecorated in a sleek yet comfortable aesthetic, but it is the sweeping coastal views that ground this home in natural beauty.

Two Master Suites make practical sense in the smart floor plan of this versatile home. The 2-level design offers two separate but connected living spaces, each with it's own private entrance.

Interior colors ranging from cool nautical blues to sandy neutrals echo the natural tones of the sand and surf of this beachside town. The main floor is bright with high ceilings, and a wall of glass doors is the only separation between the Great Room and the blue coastal waters and Channel Islands beyond. On a clear day you really can see forever!

A wood burning fireplace is the focus of the Living Room and faces comfortable seating on the large sectional sofa or the double-wide chaise. For working professionals, the large desk space in the adjacent entry is the perfect place to stay organized on a working vacation, while still enjoying the camaraderie of the main living spaces and the beautiful views. The glass Dining Room table seats 8 and, surrounded by corner windows, feels as though you are dining outside high above the ocean.

Step through the sliding glass doors of the Great Room to the wrap-around deck with its several different vantage points to enjoy the views. A seating area with barbecue is conveniently located near a side door to the kitchen, and another long stretch of the South facing deck is just perfect for seasonal whale-watching.

The galley Kitchen, with blue color-washed cabinets is equipped with all the necessary culinary items for great meals and entertaining. A Breakfast Bar adds additional seating and opens the space to the social life that may be enlivening the Great Room.

Cool colors of the ocean create a calming effect to soothe the mind and calm the spirit when you enter the Master Suite. This airy space is furnished with a king-size bed and has a full bathroom. Glass doors open to the more private side of the wrap-around deck; a great place to enjoy morning coffee or afternoon tea.

The second upstairs Bedroom has a queen-size bed with a twin trundle. Sliding doors offer convenient access to the wrap-around deck. A hall bathroom serves this bedroom and is also convenient to the main living area.

Downstairs, an apartment-style design offers the perfect set-up for a second family to have a great space all their own. The Master Suite has a queen size bed, sitting area, full kitchen and bathroom. Sliding doors open to the large lower covered balcony where guests may enjoy dining al fresco or relaxing on the hammock or comfortable seating areas.

A second bedroom on the lower level has a queen-size bed tucked quietly away in a private alcove that can be closed off with canvas curtains. The adjacent sitting area then becomes a great sitting room or an additional bedroom for overflow sleeping arrangements on the day bed . This room also opens to the lower balcony, and a convenient hall bathroom is nearby.

Summerland is a quaint seaside town full of life and charm. Just down the hill from Summer Hill Retreat are great local restaurants, beach shops, antique stores and unique fine mercantile. Treat yourself to a hearty breakfast on the porch at Summerland Beach Cafe, sip local wines at the Summerland Winery, stroll down to the beach and kick back for the day or, if it's more your style, for a glorious sunset picnic. Whatever activities you choose, Summer Hill Retreat will be the perfect beginning and ending to a memorable seaside vacation.

Guestbook comments from the manager

(Transcribed from guestbook at the property)



What a great place! The view was amazing. It was also a great place for kids because of the swing down on the lower deck that entertained them, also a wide space in the the front of the house to roller skate, scooter or bike ride. It also had a great a hammock that was a nice place to read. The deck couches were too. The house was very neat and had everything. The sheets were so soft and comfy. There was a lot of space to lounge around. We enjoyed playing board games and watching the movies they had. Overall, this was such a nice home that we hope to come back again. I hope whoever is reading this likes this house as much as us!

Perfect Family Vacation House

  • 5 of 5
We came to Summerland/Santa Barbara to gather our family (2 adults and 3 kids plus 2 grandparents) to wrap up the summer before our "kids" returned to college. It was the perfect home for our family. My parents enjoyed having the upstairs master suite, we took the second bedroom upstairs and let the kids take over the rooms downstairs. The wonderful ocean view and fresh ocean breeze were delighful. To be within walking distance of the beach and the quaint town of Summerland were terrific. It was just a short drive to Santa Barbara and Montecito (be careful to avoid morning traffic into town and the afternoon traffic out and you will be fine!)
Paradise Retreats was very helpful in the reservation process and our deposit was returned promptly. We would definately return here again.

Great home but downstairs unusable

  • 3 of 5
The home is very nice upstairs, and we absolutely loved the location. Walking distance down the trail to the quant beach town of Summerland. That being said, the bottom floor is basically unusable because of the strong musty odor. No one was able to sleep downstairs because the smell was so strong. We were afraid it was mold or mildew. We called to have the management company bring a dehumidifier or something to help but no one returned our call. We also called to have the grill replaced as it would not heat over 300 degrees but after 2 calls, again, no return. A real bummer to have to grill for hours each night because the grill won't heat and you are on vacation. For the price and the basically 2 useable bedrooms, we won't return.
