Why John Michael , Manager chose Santa Barbara

It's truly ono of a kind. Growing up in the area, this property is native Chumash land. The property is where they came to collect oak corns to make their masa,(bread) Hunt and gather, they were a peaceful

community of native Americans Santa Barbara is the only South facing coastline on the Continent of North America, which gives it it's mild climate.It's been called the American Rivera. .Before the Spanish Conquistadors arrived, there was no desise. A true paradise, Now te Chumash have a Casino 25 min. from the villa.The villa was built with old world tecnics. All the stone used in the construction was hand quarried, and hand chilsed from the ground it rests on.The roof tiles are over 100 years old, by Mexican women by forming the sheets of red adobe clay over their legs, you can still see the strokes from their finger tips on several of the tiles.All the wood beams are hand carved and 30 percent of the wood used in the villa is from dismantoled old public buildings from the area.The pizza oven's main inner components are from Florance, Italy, as well as the granite and travertne used throughout the villa.

What makes this villa unique

Serenity, complete privacy, and spectacular 360 degree views. Transforms your state of mind.Any resources requested can be provided.Your privacy and experience will be diligently protected and facilitated. Sincerely,

Why HomeAway

Magical intimate wedding

  • 5 of 5
The Tuscan Villa perched high atop a mountain with views forever was the perfect venue for our daughter's truly memorable wedding. The couple opted for a small intimate wedding with immediate family only (20 people), although the venue can accommodate much larger groups. Both the wedding ceremony and reception were held there and most of the relatives stayed in the well-appointed rooms. We rented the estate for three days, which was great because it avoided the chaos of a hurried set-up before and take-down after the wedding. If you are looking for a stress-free wedding then this is it.

Although a newer building, Villa Cielo emanates the old world charm of a century old Tuscan estate, complete with a wood-burning pizza oven in the kitchen. The majestic views, infinity pool, sightings of deer in the woods, and excellent accommodations topped off our stay. The property manager was friendly, very helpful, and accommodating. We looked at many venues before selecting this one; it is truly one of Santa Barbara's best kept secrets!! I give it a 10.

First Class Relaxation

  • 5 of 5
I hosted a good old fashioned Irish family reunion with people coming in from all over the globe. Everyone was stunned by the beauty, privacy and peacefulness of this location. The home was in perfect condition with high quality furnishings that gave the place a real sense of occasion. We cooked every night in the kitchen, including using the pizza oven to great effect.
The pool and hot tub let you relax with the stunning vista before you. We chose not to heat the pool and didn't need to as it was ideal for cooling down without being too cold.
The owner was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. Everything he told us before we arrived was factual and he offered to help with our stay in any way he could since he knows the area so well.
The house was a convenient distance to stores and to the town/beaches.

We definitely considered this a home away from home and will be back there the next time the Irish family can all be in the same place at the same time. A wonderful location for a California getaway.

Beautiful Excluded Estate

  • 5 of 5
12 of us rented Villa Del Cielo in mid May for a golf trip. The infinity pool with the view of the downtown and the pacific ocean is what sold us and we were not disappointed. This estate is great for large groups and there is no need to worry about noise complaints. All the bathrooms were very nice and there was more than enough parking for everyone.

John (landlord) was very punctual during our stay and would respond right away if we had any issues. One thing to keep in mind, it is a 15 minute ride to any grocery store so come prepared, getting a cab at 1am to make a trip down there is not easy.
