About owner/property manager

Born and raised in Santa Barbara, I returned a few years ago after living all over the world thanks the the US Navy! Having spent time on both coasts, England, Turkey, Germany, Costa Rica, Alaska...I'm thrilled to be back home! As a local I went to high school here and then on to UCSB, later graduating from California Western School of Law in San Diego. I currently split my time between Santa Barbara and Whitefish, Montana. I'm lucky that I have these two gorgeous places to call home, the best of both worlds!

owner/property manager purchased this apartment in 1953

Why owner/property manager chose Santa Barbara

Privately owed and operated, this property has been in my family for over 50 years. Uniquely undeveloped and private setting over looking Santa Barbara has always provided an oasis in paradise for me and home to many landscape artists over the years. It's a magical spot in a beautiful city.

What makes this apartment unique

Location, location, location! Where else can you enjoy panoramic views of the city, mountains and beaches and be in the center of a 15 acre oak grove in the middle of Santa Barbara?

View and area were great but rental not as expected

  • 2 of 5
The rental was very outdated, stove and oven I found very unclean and very outdated. I never used them. Whole kitchen really outdated. Owner never greeted or contacted me, only called to make sure I would be out by 11am for the next guests, this after I spent two weeks there! Can hear neighbors above walking and flushing toliets... wish I had known before hand as I find that very annoying and would have never rented as I have a problem with this. Great view from patio as advertised and nice area to walk your pet. Lots of pets in complex. Tom, the apt manager was very nice.

Best friends meeting up for a weekend get away

  • 5 of 5
It was rough trying to find a suitable place on graduation/fathers day weekend.
We could not believe how lucky we were to land this find!
The owners made everything super easy and were available at the drop of the hat for any questions.
The apartment was very clean, had lots of light and extremely comfortable.
That doesn't even touch the view...WOW!
We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Hilltop beauty in Santa Barbara

  • 5 of 5
Part of a smallish apartment complex in The Mesa (beach) area of Santa Barbara, this place was a gem with a spectacular view out the living room and balcony. Nothing terribly elaborate, but very well located, comfy, on the ground floor, with a nice bedroom and plenty of closet space. We're a senior couple who have visited SB many times over the years (kids went to UCSB), and rate this place highly. Not immediately convenient to walking trails but plenty to find a short ride away and we much enjoyed our week's stay.
