Overview

Overview

Hope Ranch House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths

The house accommodates parties of up to 6 adults, or 4 adults with up to 4 younger children.

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.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5
We had an incredible experience and fully enjoyed this gorgeous home. The house is immaculate, the amenities are plentiful, and there were even fabulous toys for our 2 year old to enjoy the entire week. The location is fantastic-- walking distance to world class sunsets, a quick jog to shoreline park, and an easy drive to so many activities. This house was ideal for our family and a lovely place to relax. We are already looking forward to coming back. Thank you to the owner, who was responsive and available.

Two months in Santa Barbara

  • 5 of 5
Fortunately me and my family (two adults, three kids aged 9 to 14) could stay at this wonderful place for round about two months of our sabbatical. Located in a nice and calm neighborhood and close to the Mesa Steps it had been very easy to get down to the beach and enjoy watching the surfers and walking to the Boat House, a nearby restaurant. The house itself is so beautiful and elegant, a place inviting you to stay longer like the especially comfortable beds. Once you get up you can have your first coffee in the yard, which is sunny the whole day. You might enjoy the hummingbirds and a nice barbecue. In addition to the gas grill the rest of the house is very well equipped, too, and the owner appeared to be very helpful and supporting in any needs. We left with a heavy heart and say thanks again for sharing that awesome place with us. We will be back!

Enjoyable month

  • 5 of 5
We (a family of four) spent a great month in this house - it is beautifully modern, spacious and really well equipped. The Mesa neighbourhood is tranquil, scenic and a really nice place to be. The house is a few steps from the Douglas preserve where you can sit on the clifftop and look at dolphins, whales and paragliders launching and landing. We spent alot of time in the garden which connects easilty to the huge kitchen/dining/living room with large glass sliding doors. I can't think of anything negative to say about the house- we were sad to leave!

This place is amazing!

  • 5 of 5
We just spent a month here and loved it. Normally we like to be close to State St but this house and surrounding neighborhood totally changed our mind. We plan to be back here next winter.

The cool, ultra-modern, minimalist design and decor proved to be surprisingly warm and comfortable. The fireplace, the leather sofa, the first-class appliances all made for a great vacation experience.

The layout of the bedrooms and bathrooms allowed for easy privacy when we hosted friends for a week. The beautifully landscaped backyard served as our own little private oasis.

Our Border Collie loved the proximity - 1/2 a block - to the Douglas Family Preserve, an off-leash park directly over the ocean where we regularly enjoyed sunsets.

Finally, the owners went out of their way to accommodate and expedite our last minute rental request, a real pleasure to deal with.
