Overview

Santa Barbara Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath Suite, Sleeps 4 - 5

Located in the hills above the city, you are only 1.2 miles from State Street, (the main artery for shopping and restaurants) and four miles to the beach, pier and art walk. The closest stores and restaurants are less than 1.5 miles away, though you may feel nicely removed from the city in this hilltop suite surrounded by spectacular views of the ocean, islands, mountains, oak trees, plenty of nature and by night - a span of glittering city lights visible through nearly wall-to-wall french doors that lead to a private stone-paved patio. Enjoy the morning views of rolling hills, orchards and mountains that look like the Tuscan countryside.

Charming pathways lead you a large, solar-heated pool, spa and 'petting zoo' of one very friendly goat. The zoo is located at the farthest end of the fully-gated two-acre property.

This one bedroom suite plus curtained alcove with daybed has been newly remodeled and designed to be light, refreshing, airy, stylish and comfortable. Romantic for a couple and cozy for a small family – it sleeps up to five. Feel your spirits lift the moment you walk in the door.

About Caroline Plasencia

Caroline Brand is an art director, graduate of Art Center College of Design who sometimes works from home and sometimes travels. She shares her home with her husband and kids who are mostly away at college.

Caroline Plasencia purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Caroline Plasencia chose Santa Barbara

We instantly fell in love with this property because of the beautiful views and grounds –two acres of nature. We always call it our bit of heaven. We named our suite the 'Tuscan Vista' because of the rolling hills and the orchards that lead up to the mountains. You will feel you are in a rural setting but everything is just a few minutes away.

What makes this apartment unique

Glorious views everywhere, peaceful setting, newly remodeled suite with brand new appliances and furniture. Bird-watching and stargazing. Kids and adults will love the pool (nice and warm), hot tub and plenty of yard (fully gated) in which to play, visit the goat, swim and be creative. Outdoor seating and lounging provided. The suite is all one level from off-street parking to your suite - only one step. There is a bathtub/shower combination. A very clean suite with comfortable mattresses and linens. There is a daybed (twin) alcove that can be made private by closing the curtains and a sleeper sofa full/queen in living room. It is bliss.

wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Caroline and Mike welcomed us and we had a lovely stay. The apartment is below their home and is bright and white. They had a bottle of wine, fresh flowers, and cookies waiting for us as well as all the basic spices, oils, coffee and fresh milk. The view from the pool was amazing and we really enjoyed the hot tub. My 5 year old son enjoyed the water slide as well as the very friendly goat. We would absolutely come back here and would highly recommend it to our friends. You will surely love a stay here!

Stunning views and gracious hosts.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I travel frequently to Santa Barbara and always do the typical hotel setting. My daughter had found this hidden gem Tucktaway in the Santa Barbara hills with stunning views warm pool and great Jacuzzi. The amenities were exactly as listed the bed was nice and soft and the refrigerator had a small amount of amenities milk , Coffee and a few other nice things. The owners were very gracious hosts, they were there when you needed them and otherwise the privacy was perfect. The resident Billy goat was a fun addition to the trip. The property was good size and really nice to walk around. Very close to downtown and the beach it was just the perfect setting very very comfortable nice to relax go and take a nap make something to eat watch TV barbecue just like home. The next trip to Santa Barbara we definitely hope there's an opening for us thanks again for making our trip wonderful and memorable,

Sincerely,

JL

Tuscany in the US!

  • 5 of 5

This was an outstanding rental! The views were to die for and the apartment was darling and came complete with Valentine heart candy and fresh flowers upon our arrival. The owner could not be more gracious and a joy to work with. We loved the surroundings, great pool and jacuzzi, and Goatee, their goat, was a real hoot. Downtown was very close along with restaurants and sites. This was one of the nicest places we ever had the honor to stay at and can't wait to come back!

Goatee really likes to visit with people - she's quite social and especially loves sweets. Take care and be sure to look us up again! Sincerely, Caroline and Mike

best apartment of all

  • 5 of 5

We are close to Review of Guy S. of Montreal and all others.

We have booked the apartment when there was no review and we were not disappointed.

We traveled 5 times to Santa Barbara and it is the best apartment of all.

We spent four unforgettable weeks in the apartment and we would always love to come back.

The only thing we want then pleasant terraces furniture outside for dinner. The white chairs are uncomfortable for a long time we lived in the apartment.

Owner's Response: Thank you Marianne and Heinz, It was a pleasure having you as our guests. We cherish everyone who stays with us. It has been such a rewarding experience for us. Thank you for letting me know about the chairs - I had no idea, I just thought the chairs were so cute but never tried sitting them for long periods. I am definitely looking for something more comfortable, so I appreciate your suggestion. Thank you for lovely review. I hope to see you both again. Best, Caroline & Mike P.s. The roses look amazing! Thanks for taking care of them.

Incredible Views - Beautiful accommodation.

  • 5 of 5

This property is very clean, and there are great views over the valley. The heated pool is ideal for a swim after being out and about and the jacuzzi has an adapter for plugging in your own music.

The owners are very friendly, but respect your privacy at the same time.

Santa Barbara is a wonderful place, and this accommodation is ideally situated and is very peaceful.
