The house accommodates parties of up to 6 adults, or 4 adults with up to 4 younger children and rents for a minimum of one week.
Designed by local santa barbara architect David Vanhoy, this light-filled modern beauty is located next to a historic nature preserve (Douglas Family Preserve) and two blocks from the steps that go down to Arroyo Burro Beach.
It was just remodeled in January 2013. Some of the improvements included the installation of ceramic tile flooring throughout the house, new bathroom glass tiles and fixtures, and a steam shower to indulge in a relaxing steam bath in the master bathroom.
In addition it has been furnished anew following a modern aesthetic with focus on simplicity, comfort, and beauty. Some of the furnishings are high quality modern european imports, and some are made by californian artisans using reclaimed materials.
There are examples of Mr. Vanhoy's clever architectural implements throughout the house, like the sliding bathroom cabinets that pull out from behind the master bathroom mirrors. But the main architectural attraction of the house is a breathtaking great room, spacious and flooded with light, with a high ceiling that seems to float above glass walls.
The house has three bedrooms and two bathrooms and will sleep comfortably 6 adults or up to 4 adults and 4 children.
In addition there is a tranquil separate office with a view of the front yard, couch, and a desk with an imac.
A lovely backyard with a patio area appointed with a professional grade BBQ and inviting adirondacks adds a final compliment to this beautiful home.
Convenience stores are nearby (within a mile you'll find a shopping square with large organic and gourmet grocery store, pharmacy/drugstore, cafe, restaurants, etc.) the many attractions of downtown and the wharf and harbor area are just a 10 minute drive away. But you come back home to the quiet of this mesa neighborhood and the beauty of its cliffs overlooking the ocean.
This house was a perfect 10 for us. It was like living in a DWELL Magazine spread!! We had a great time relaxing in the yard and also lounging indoors. Every amenity was there. Anything you could think of. Awesome seafood restaurants or just hit Lazy Acres grocery store and cook in. Perfect space for cooking and entertaining friends. It's close to a great beach with perfect whale watching. Watch the tide charts and walk at low tide for maximum beach real estate. And also just a short drive or bike ride from state street. We were 2 adults, a 3 year old and a dog. We loved it! It was a designer's paradise!
a great house, very clean and modern, lots of natural light, super quiet neighborhood, great walks right out the front door, run to the beach, walk to a good beach restaurant, friendly neighbors, just a nice place to spend a few days to unwind and enjoy the ocean and beach. whale watching too! 7 minutes to downtown and to the harbor....
The house was SUPER and very kid friendly! I will not hesitate to stay here again- you should not either.
This place is everything it promised to be: an immaculate modern home with all the necessary conveniences, located right beside a beautiful preserve overlooking the ocean. We enjoyed cooking big meals, gathering with family, walking and tide-pooling, and venturing out into town . . . all so easy from this superior spot.
Wow! What a fabulous home in a beautiful area. This place was perfect for our family of 5, spacious and has everything your own home would have and possibly need. Perfect location to beach, preserve, and shopping. Thank you for a wonderful month stay. Hope to be back next year.
a very comfortable modern home, close to the beach and an open space for walks. good shops close by and a very quiet neighborhood. Immediate response from the owners when we had a small concern.
