Imagine warm tropical breezes, the shimmer of water falling into a crystalline pool, lush exotic plants, and quiet music emanating from every corner of a private oasis. Welcome to Tropical Paradise – a artful departure from the ordinary, a serene escape.
Upon entering through private gates, it is uniquely evident that a zen-like experience is in store. From the careful attention to landscaping details and countless water features, to the impeccably fluid interiors that blend with the tropical grounds, this property is a one-of-a-kind experience centered around renewing the mind and body.
In Pan-Asian style, indoor and outdoor spaces meld seamlessly. The use of natural fabrics, earthy textures, and rich colorful hues creates an organically harmonious family escape or a romantic getaway in the heart of Montecito.
The Living Room, with bamboo beams and fabric wall coverings, centers around the stone fireplace. Through French doors, a private dining patio sits adjacent to a soothing water feature, where a happy Buddha presides – a perfect romantic space al fresco.
With culinary genius in mind, the open Kitchen is fully equipped for gourmet chefs to create masterpiece meals. Artful bamboo cabinets house a plethora of gourmet tools and professional appliances, unique “earth friendly” cookware, and serving pieces make meal time a true pleasure.
The Dining Room centers around the large distressed Balinese teak table that sits under a pagoda lamp - walls painted in earthy tones of terra cotta add to the welcoming warmth of this room.
The Master Bedroom is a sanctuary that hugs the soul and instantly has the ability to calm even the most weary traveler. The queen-size bed is a tribal refuge, with vibrant pillows and duvet from the owner’s home bedding line. As with all the rooms in this home, outdoor and indoor spaces blend perfectly. With the bedroom doors flung open, one can see straight through the entire home, and French doors open to the backyard pool terrace.
The Master Bathroom is a work of art with a custom mosaic over the spa tub and large walk-in shower. A generous walk-in closet completes the space.
Two guest bedrooms offer different vantage points to enjoy more serene views of the backyard oasis. On the north side, a bright and airy room with custom platform queen-size bed faces the backyard and pool. The intimate setting of the south guest bedroom offers twin day bed with trundle and access door that leads to a hidden spa and one of two outdoor warm showers tucked under tropical palms just outside
A Balinese bungalow is artfully tucked into the landscape. In South Seas style, a queen-size bed rests beneath the Alang Alang thatched roof with walls of windows that that when flung open feels as if the space is suspended among the trees.
As with all destinations in paradise, it is time spent in the sunshine, or resting in the shade, that creates that “endless vacation” feel. A music system throughout the property offers guests the opportunity to create their own backdrop to this magical place. A charming Thai Princess adorns a tiered fountain that pours tranquil water into the river rock lined pool and spa that feels as if one has stumbled upon a jungle swimming hole.
Two thatched roof palapas offer opposing experiences. One meant for meditation or relaxed outdoor gathering. The other, a private Spinning ™ palapa with several Spinning ™ bikes and Krankcycles ™ to get the blood pumping and body in motion. Yoga mats are thoughtfully provided.
As expected at any fine resort, there is plenty of outdoor seating and chaise lounges to enjoy staying connected to poolside activity. Dining and seating options dot the landscape with a variety of areas for every mood. Under a large shade tree an informal picnic table flanks a tribal council gas fire pit creating a festive location after dark.
Location is the final punctuation to this amazing property, centered between the Upper and Lower Villages of Montecito and just minutes to local beaches, great shopping and fine dining.
The owners have thought of everything—and spared no expense—to create a sensual paradise that’s both warm and exotic. This is not merely a home, it is rare blend of luxury and casual comfort. Escape to the tropics, in Montecito. “Om Swastiastu” - Welcome!
