A TASTE OF TUSCANY - PANORAMIC VIEWS-2 MASTER SUITES-2.4 ACRES

Santa Barbara Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

Are you yearning for a taste of Tuscany in your own private residence to enjoy for a special occasion, family reunion, holiday or vacation? Is your preference a private, serene retreat yet in close proximity to all that Santa Barbara and Montecito have to offer?

This vacation rental has it all and more! Nestled in the mountains between Montecito and Mission Canyon, this is the perfect location to take advantage of Santa Barbara’s pristine beaches, downtown shopping, gourmet restaurants, wildlife, sporting activities, wine country and the full Santa Barbara experience.

This brand new, two level Mediterranean home was completed in January, 2011 and has a sprawling 3300 square feet of living space including 2 master suites, breathtaking views, casual elegance and comfort. Take your morning coffee out on the deck and experience the early morning glimpses of our local wildlife including deer, eagles, and hummingbirds. Have your breakfast al fresco on the spacious deck and enjoy the peace and quiet of this serene neighborhood while nature unfolds before your eyes, or curl up on the cozy window seat perfect for reading in the morning sun.

Our home has 4 large bedrooms, 3 down 1 up, each with French Doors opening up to the incredible views. The home is tastefully decorated with Spa like motifs and includes vaulted beamed ceilings in the Master Suite and Living Rooms. The kitchen is a cook’s delight and features Marinache Gold granite counter tops imported from Brasil, huge amount of workspace, 8 burner gas stove w/ 2 ovens, 2 dishwashers, wine cooler and additional freezer/refrigerator units. The large butcher block island is ideal for food preparation and additional workspace. The dining room seats 8 comfortably and can seat 2 more if needed.

There are 2 working fireplaces, one in the living room and one in the master suite, wonderful for getting cozy on the cool evenings. HD TV in all bedrooms and living room. This house provides that special something that makes for a memorable visit. You have instant access to everything including downtown Santa Barbara just 2 miles away, hiking and world class cycling trails within 1 mile of the property or just sit back on the deck with a cocktail and enjoy watching the paragliders and hang-gliders take off and land just across the way, or enjoy a horseback or mountain bike ride in the 200 acre public park just across the street. Our home is ideal for relaxing and/or entertaining for a group of 8 or more and still has the ability for a couple to be off by themselves. We have a tankless water heater so there will be no shortage of hot water regardless of how many showers you and your group should want.

This home provides all the elements for entertaining and relaxing and still maintains that special feeling of seclusion. From the moment you arrive you are relaxed and feel at home! The perfect spot to return from day trips to the wine country, exploring the coast, shopping, dining or just enjoying the peace and tranquility our home offers. We look forward to having you experience it for yourself and welcoming you soon!

MAJESTIC & TIMELESS

Majestic & Timeless
  • 5 of 5
The home was our hub for our family to celebrate our daughters wedding. The home was absolutely stunning and well maintained.The amenities were amazing! The kitchen was fabulous for those gourmet cooks such as our family. We had such Majestic views from the deck each morning as the sun rose and set! There were plenty of blankets for the cool evenings. The outdoor yard was beautiful with trails leading to a children's play yard and the grand fire pit. The home was that of a 10 star resort! Karen was very attentive and available to answer any questions we may have. We were so thankful for such a glorious stay!

COULD NOT HAVE BEEN BETTER!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 9 stayed there for a reunion and it was perfect. The house was beautiful. We enjoyed the décor and the huge kitchen. The view from the back porches was amazing. We all sat outside and enjoyed watching the hang gliders float down into the canyon. The house was close to the downtown and local attractions. We enjoyed exploring the area. I would highly recommend this house to anyone looking to stay in Santa Barbara.

SPECTACULAR HOME/PROPERTY WITH IMPECCABLE TOUCHES AND STUNNING VIEWS

  • 5 of 5
We brought 3 families (14 people - all slept comfortably) to attend our daughter's wedding in Santa Barbara this past weekend. After lots of research and discussion among us, we opted to rent Karen's tremendous home as opposed to doing the traditional, confining and limited "high-end hotel" deal. Boy, did we make the right decision!

From the initial discussions/emails with Karen leading up to our stay, we immediately knew we were dealing with a very experienced and courteous homeowner and someone who was extremely organized and considerate as it pertained to provide a special visit with all the comforts of being home. Karen has done an amazing job of creating a unique ambiance with the furnishings, appliances, pictures, electronics, etc. all tastefully done with quality and convenience at every turn. The home oozes both class and warmth, a very rare combination. The variety of useful features: 2 decks, fire pit, fire places, jacuzzi tub, dreamy mattresses, flat screens, chef's kitchen, wine fridge and more ensures both a highly comfortable experience with a touch of feeling spoiled for good measure.

The location is ideal to the area's most commonly visited attractions and just a few turns (albeit windy ones, coming down the breathtaking mountain) from Highway 101. The views from the decks are, simply, awe-inspiring. Our party often found themselves simply staring hypnotically out at the vast canyon landscape which is a view and vision we will not soon forget. Beautiful and so serene....

I would unquestionably recommend this home for virtually all occasions and for a wide variety of families, couples, friends, etc - I do not think there is a better value out there and it is tremendously beneficial to be virtually guaranteed a memorable stay at a lovely home and property.

We will definitely make every effort to return, once was not enough!! THANK YOU again, Karen, for your hospitality and consideration and for sharing your most special house and property with us. It really added to a wonderful weekend and helped make my daughter's wedding nearly perfect.

WONDERFUL HOME!

  • 5 of 5
My oldest daughter chose to be married in Santa Barbara on August 3, 2013. We are from Texas and I've always used VRBO for our travels. I was not disappointed in this amazing property one bit! The home is lovely, spacious, fabulous kitchen, wonderful views, and just perfect for our wedding week. Karen had everything ready for our arrival and graciously agreed to allow us to host an extended family dinner one night, a bridal brunch, and hair and makeup the morning of the wedding. We have such lovely memories of the week and this comfortable home. Thank you Karen!

FAMILY GATHERING

  • 5 of 5
This beautiful house was perfect for our celebration of my mother's 80th. The beautiful main floor master bedroom made my mother feel like a queen and she was able to avoid any stairs. The rest of us were very comfortable in the three master bedrooms downstairs. Every room had a view and sitting out on the deck was so enjoyable. We were able to see hang gliders and many different kinds of birds. We all loved it!

A PERFECT EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
I was looking for a home in the Santa Barbara area so that our son and daughter-in-law from LA could join us, son and daughter-in-law from Chicago could join us and daughter and son-in-law from San Francisco could join us. This home with 4 bedrooms filled the bill.....and then some. A beautiful setting, the home was in tip top condition. Everything was there...the kitchen was fully equipped, firewood was ready to go...you name it and it was there. A very comfortable setting....we found ourselves sitting around the island in the gourmet kitchen and talking and laughing in the living room while the fire burned. It was a bit cold to be on the deck or at the fire pit but they would be great if the temps were a bit higher. If you are looking for a place for a family vacation with or without teenagers, a reunion, etc. where you want space and privacy yet want to be together look no further.

The home is up in the hills in a very quiet neighborhood. The local roads are nice for walks, but you will definitely need a car to shop, see the sights, etc. The owner was very easy to communicate with; she anticipated our questions and made the process seamless. The experience reinforced my belief in VRBO.
