Point of View-Relaxed Elegance in Montecito

NOTE: We do not use the availability calendar on this website. Please visit Paradise Retreats website for availability information. Use the 'For Property Information and Availability Calendar' link located at the bottom of this page.

Point of View offers a unique perspective on the vacation experience, creating a perfect balance of relaxed elegance and designer style. Located in the lower foothills just above Montecito Country Club, the home sits perched on gently sloping grounds offering views that span from the majestic foothills to the blue coastal waters below .

Formerly equestrian trails on an old Montecito estate, the quiet streets wind through this beloved neighborhood of flowering gardens and graceful architecture. The homes here actually date back to the 1920's.

Completely remodeled to perfection, the home has a peaceful and regenerative energy. Many of the architectural elements of the house were created using salvaged, reclaimed, and antique materials from France, Spain, Switzerland and farms of the mid-west. The use of old materials in new construction adds character, elegance and a relaxed grace to this home.

The main living space is a bright open room with soaring ceilings featuring rustic barn beams and railroad trestles. The Living and Dining Room blend together seamlessly with a game table and linen covered armchairs dividing the two spaces. The fine furnishings of the home are first and foremost designed for comfort.

The large stone fireplace with 18th century mantle from France welcomes guests to gather and relax in the Living Room, but can also be enjoyed as a warm and welcoming backdrop to elegant dinners in the adjacent Dining Room. A wall of glass doors open to the expansive deck with ocean and garden views.

The Kitchen and Family Room offer yet another special place to relax and and unwind in front of a 2nd marble fireplace adorned with a salvaged mantle from Paris. The kitchen is well appointed with professional appliances, soapstone counters, wine cooler, and a large walk-in pantry filled with picnic items and serving pieces. For those who bring their work along, the Office offers a quiet place to set up a laptop, make phone calls and stay connected even while on vacation!

The romantic Master Suite with soaring ceiling and king-size bed faces backyard and ocean views. Amenities here include a soapstone desk with antique marble balustrades, flat screen TV and antique corbel night stands. A balcony offers a serene spot to begin or end the day.

The spacious Master Bathroom adds to the luxurious feel of the Master Suite. Walls of smooth marble, glass top vanity, unique cast-iron and steel soaking tub, walk-in shower and large walk-in closet complete the smart design features of this spa-like space.

A south facing Guest Bedroom offers a queen-size bed facing the ocean views, shares the balcony with the Master Suite, and has a private full bathroom.

Two north-facing Guest Bedrooms share another balcony facing the entry. One room offers a king-size bed and flat screen TV. The other Guest Bedroom offers two luxurious and comfortable full-size beds. Both rooms offer sliding glass doors to their shared balcony. These two rooms, plus the Hall Bathroom, make the perfect area for a second family or older children to enjoy some privacy in their 'wing' of the home.

A large deck is the unifying feature of this wonderful family home. A generous sized teak table overlooks the back yard, with coastal and mountain views. as the backdrop to every meal. This space is complete with an outdoor Living Room with deep sofas, gas heaters and market umbrellas for all kinds of weather. For the amateur grill master, the outdoor kitchen is generously equipped with a top of the line gas grill and Big Green Egg Smoker.

The surrounding gardens offer guests the opportunity to enjoy culinary treats from several fruit trees including avocados, lemons, limes, olives and figs. There is an edible garden with herbs and seasonable vegetables. Enjoy a game of bocce ball on the lawn. A host of recreational toys have been generously provided, while a warm water outdoor shower offers returning beach combers a place to rinse off before coming inside.

Point of View is relaxed and luxurious, with an ease and informal grace that is sure to have guests exclaiming, 'C’est magnifique. Point de Vue es perfection!'

Lovely Donation

  • Submitted: Feb 27, 2014
  • Stayed: Jan 2014
(Transcribed from the guestbook at the property)

Dear Owners,
As you know, chairing our school auction is a big task and it could not have made it a success without generous friends like you! Your donation of this lovely home not only made a significant contribution to our Auction, but as promised a wonderful reward for me this week as we enjoyed the beauty of the area and Santa Barbara Charm. We were so comfortable and seeing everything so wonderfully appointed. We felt pampered and had a ball! Thank you for your generosity and friendship!

(Transcribed from the guestbook at the property)

We are enamored of your Point of View! Thank you for opening your home to us and our guests. We enjoyed a cozy and magical thanksgiving week and we are so grateful.
Your home is comfortable, interesting in the detail and a pleasure to use. We walked to the beach, the village, shopping through Santa Barbara in general took advantage of your many suggestions and always at the end of the day sighed and thought "good to be home." You have created a very special place. Thank you!

Something Very Special

  • Submitted: Dec 6, 2013
  • Stayed: Nov 2013
(Transcribed from the guestbook at the property)

It seems many of us have picked your home for special occasions or celebrations, and we were not the exception. I brought 3 of my dearest friends to celebrate my 50th birthday. And to thank them for their long and loyal friendship. I had wanted something very special for this getaway and when I saw your home on the website and knew it was "the" place! I kept it as a surprise for them until the day they arrived. It was as good as Christmas waiting for them to arrive and see your home. We haven't left the house in 3 days... when your are hear you have found paradise. We have walked your home like a museum, almost arrived we will miss one of the spectacular decorations you have so carefully chose. We wanted you to know we appreciated every inch of it. And we can only assume your are a wonderful family because of what this house reflects of you. Thank you for sharing with us! We will cherish our memories together here for the rest of our lives!
