Overview

Hope Ranch House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

No minimum stays mid week so inquire with a note.

This is an amazing property on a huge piece of land with a lawn as big as a soccer field, oak trees, an arboretum, 33 specimen roses, fruit trees, with expansive views from the large balcony overlooking your park like yard. Great for dogs, kids, and kids at heart.

2 minutes to Arroyo Burro/Hendry's Beach one of the very best in Santa Barbara, 5 mins to downtown, the Pier, the Wharf, State Street, Court House, and Mission. 10 minutes to the SB Airport next to UCSB.

The property we well maintained and very clean. Dogs are allowed, and great care is taken so you'd never know it! If you have a dog or dogs to bring along, they must be housebroken and not bark excessively.

There is a Zipline, tree swings, a Tarzan rope, cross train rope to climb, hammock, tetherball, croquette --- and a lawn as big as a football field. It's a huge play land. FAMILIES WITH KIDS, I have referrals for babysitters if you like, and there are TONS OF TOYS AND GAMES FOR KIDS for hours of entertainment.

The rental is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath, with a wood burning fireplace, wood provided, all newly done with new carpet, drapes, furniture, bedding, and floors. There are luxurious hotel linens and towels for ultra comfort during your stay and plenty of extras so you don't run out. HD TV's with DVD's in every room, high speed internet, and Cable TV.

The kitchen is made for cooks! All utensils for cooking and serving with platters and all, as well as a full kitchen of built in and counter appliances.

The property is by an amazing expansive sandy beach, Hendry's, framed by beautiful cliffs. A Dog beach is on the left side, Boathouse restaurant and miles of beach to walk on the right. The Wilcox/Douglas Preserve is 5 mins away, a great dog park or walk along the cliffs overlooking the ocean.

The house is extremely private in a very rural area, which is unusual since it's close to the beach and downtown. No neighbors can see in. The house is built into a hill so it's naturally quiet. The lawn alone is about one acre and is bordered by 27 acres of wild land. It is mainly fenced. The top deck has a gate to contain your dog for your stay in the house, so your pup can go in and out. This rental is above the yard and overlooks it for a breathtaking view. There is a flagstone staircase to take you on a garden walk down to the yard, the zipline, rope swings, and relaxing time in the hammock.

Upon arrival, you will see a Butterfly Garden with special plants to sustain the life cycle of the endangered Monarch Butterfly. Caterpillars, and Chrysalis and flying Monarch's abound.

The specimen trees are amazing! Pick fruit for you stay: apples, plums, avocados, oranges, lemons, peaches, loquats.

There is a specimen rose garden of 33 never to be bred again roses saved from a historic garden. Enjoy their beauty and cut them for your stay to fragrance your property.

This is an artist's house with original French impressionist oil paintings throughout. The scenes in the paintings are landscapes from the area.

For larger groups, there is a second unit below (the entire structure is built into a hillside. The second unit is VRBO 401412, and is a 2 bed/1 bath. The yard is shared with the unit below. The yard is as big as a park, so there is plenty of room. The entry to each unit is completely separated, private, and you may not see the other party except maybe on the driveway, which is shared, or in the play land yard.

For a group, you can rent both units based on availability and a passage to open both up to one another will be made available.

For stays of 1 week or more, a housekeeper will come one of the days to clean and do wash and fold personal laundry, all included in the price.

The management of the unit is done by a good owner/manager with a 5 star rating for the lower unit and a 5 star rating for this upper.

PLEASE NOTE:

Maximum occupancy for unit --- 8 people.

No students with wild parties. This is a special property for peaceful stays for romance, families, kids, puppies, reunions, but absolutely not a 'party' house.

Use of tree swings, ropes, hammock, zip line, all at your own risk, so parents tell your kids to be careful, and please supervise! It's a lot of fun for all, but be careful!

No events. No weddings.

Property is not childproofed inside or out. If you have a crawler, or toddler, please be advised that this property is not set up for the safety features necessary for young children. All electric is like a normal house, there is a fireplace not secured for kids, the deck outside was built before child safety codes, so openings in the fencing are larger than 4 inches apart.

NON SMOKING UNIT IN THE INSIDE, FEEL FREE TO SMOKE ON THE BALCONY AND OUTSIDE.

About Rebecca Brand

I am an oil painting artist, a TV producer, and a You Tube Cooking host of the channel Rebecca Brand Recipes and Santa Barbara California - a tourist channel. I have managed another listing with a 5 star rating, so I'm very responsive and caring about my guest's stay. I went to UCLA, (MBA), and grew up in Northern California.

Rebecca Brand purchased this house in 2005

Why Rebecca Brand chose Hope Ranch

When I first saw this house I walked straight from the front door through the home as the breathtaking view drew me to the balcony. I was overwhelmed with emotion as I saw a park below (the huge lawn and trees!) that my children could play in. I had never seen, and still haven't seen a house central in Santa Barbara with an expansive yard like this property has.

What makes this house unique

This house is unique for it's large parcel of land, yet a moment from the beach. It's ultra private. I watch birds, hummingbirds, robins, little yellow canaries, fly through the garden every day when I'm there.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5
Our group was 3 couples and the house was absolutely perfect. Rebecca was very helpful and prompt in her responses. The property is amazing, I wish we had more time to explore! All of the beds were super comfortable and the whole house was just so cozy in general! Tons of towels and anything that we needed was available to us. We had a great stay and would love to return!

Perfect family property

  • 5 of 5
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our week long stay at Rebecca's VRBO. The home was 100% comfortable. My grandchildren played in the yard for hours of fun. They also enjoyed beach toys, inside toys and games. This location is ideal for functions at Elings park, we had a wedding there. The beach is down the street.
Rebecca is the most welcoming VRBO owner I have ever met. The house has an abundance of linens and towels. The bedding and beds were luxurious and comfortable.
More family members rented the lower unit for part of our stay. That is a great options for large families. Staying in a home, where we could cook meals, saved us money and is easier with young children.

Great meeting place to hang out

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Rebecca's as a birthday get away weekend for my family with 6 adults and 2 kids. The house was amazingly comfortable and a really nice place to just hang out and relax. The zip line and swings were fun for kids and adult kids, the kitchen was extremely well stocked that it made it very easy to cook in and there was no shortage of towels in the bathrooms. The location was quiet and convenient, just far enough away from the busy downtown and beach areas. Rebecca was extremely hospitable and friendly. We look forward to planning another gathering with extended family and renting the bottom unit, too.

Great place for family and dog lovers

  • 5 of 5
It was our first time using VRBO rentals for our family vacation. We all had a great time staying Rebecca's beautiful, playful and pet friendly house. We especially loved a huge yard and a large deck. Very close to shops, beaches and downtown SB. We ended up renting her other 2ned/1bath unit downstairs too! We definetly recommend to stay Rebecca's vacation rentals!!!

Family of 5 adults, 1 toddler and 1 baby

  • 5 of 5
We loved staying in this home for 3 nights and 2 1/2 days. Absolutely wonderful. Huge back yard with a multitude of swings, all a little different, a hammock, a zip line. Our little 3 year old was too little to play on most of the swings, but we all went down to this beautiful back yard, played tether ball, ran around, swung in the hammock, sent a play parachute over the deck to watch it fall into the garden/yard, to our 3 year old's delight. The deck was super, enough room for everyone to fit, eat dinner, have hors d'oeuvres and cocktails. Bedrooms were so nice, very comfortable beds, a TV in every bedroom. Never watched them. Too much fun to be had. The kitchen is dated, but very adequate. Absolutely no problem cooking; great BBQ on the deck. The owner knew we were bringing a 3 year old little boy, and she left a basket full of trucks and cars and beach toys. We used them all! Pictures accurately represent property. Owner was very helpful in all aspects. We have been home for 1 day, and have already recommended this property to friends. Property very clean and well maintained. We HIGHLY recommend the Hendry's Beach, about a 3 minute drive from the house. Great for kids....great for dogs! We will be booking next year, for sure!

Owner's Response: Dear Susan,

I was so happy to read your review, it makes me feel so good to hear you enjoyed the yard so much! I'm a mom of 3 boys, all grown, and it was my life's most joyful moments to see them having fun in that backyard! It gives me so much happiness to hear your children enjoyed all those fun things. Glad you liked the BBQ, and the house too! Thank you so much for staying and for the great review! Rebecca

Great Weekend Stay

  • 4 of 5
Great house with upper and lower units, amazing space and great accessibility. For someone returning to the area, it's in a pretty good location for Santa Barbara. The house has great cots with memory foam pads for extra sleeping accommodations. The porch is a great hangout spot as well as the backyard (which includes a hammock). We were a group of 8 there for an alumni gathering and it comfortably fit us all. I couldn't have been happier with the rental, and hopefully can stay here again!
