Casa Blanca - Exclusive Elegance on the Beach

NOTE: We do not use the availability calendar on this website. Please visit Paradise Retreats website for availability information. Use the 'For Property Information and Availability Calendar' link located at the bottom of this page.

Casa Blanca is a one-of-a-kind oceanfront home built in dramatic Moorish style just beyond the outskirts of Montecito. Its unique location in an exclusive enclave of 6 homes, is surrounded on three sides by water, creating wonderful views of the ocean, the mountains and the ever-changing natural wonders of the adjacent Carpinteria Salt Marsh.

Entered through massive iron gates, the courtyard is elegantly replete with a classic fountain. Lavish furnishings, art and sculptures set the tone of this unique luxury home. With grand scale and impeccable attention to detail, the home's ambiance speaks of fine quality in well maintained excellence.

Eighteen-foot ceilings and a wall of sliding glass doors which open to sea views, invite visitors into the dramatic living room. Adjacent to the living room is the formal dining room that can be closed off, if desired, by sliding doors.

The bright Kitchen, with butcher block center Island, is fully equipped with everything needed to entertain including 2 different sets of dishes for casual or formal dining. A sunny breakfast nook with bistro table for two offers access to the beach just outside.

Perfect for the working professionals, the home boasts two offices. Throw open the doors of the comfortable first floor office to enjoy the tropical ocean breezes while you work. Upstairs, the formal office offers a large antique desk, TV, and fireplace. Take a break from a busy working vacation on the view balcony.

The Master Suite is conveniently located on the first floor with sliding doors to the oceanfront patio. The space is gracious and serene, designed in warm natural tones, exotic fabrics and accented with fine detail. A fireplace with marble hearth and a flat screen TV add to the amenities one would expect in a home of this caliber.

The main features of the Master Bathroom include a generous size walk-in marble shower, lighted vanity, and private outdoor patio with a large custom tile spa.

A grand curving staircase leads to the guest bedrooms on the second floor. The front bedroom facing the ocean is luminous in bright sunny yellows with a full bath, private balcony, and pristine ocean views. A warm and sophisticated second bedroom has a full bath. The third guestroom with mountain views is a blend of convenience and flexibility with 3 Murphy beds that can be folded up or down to create the perfect room configuration. A balcony overlooking the spa below and exercise equipment are added features of this smart room.

It is the expansive oceanfront Lanai that offers guests more than just a taste of beach living in grand style. A clever and private sandy 'beach' has been carved out with lounge chairs, umbrellas, and unobstructed views over the massive sandstones to the blue coastal waters. Other outdoor features include gas barbeque, oceanside fire-pit and grassy lawn. The public beach just steps from the property remains underutilized as general public access is difficult due to a huge seawall on one end of the beach, and the water flow at the entrance of the Salt Marsh at the other end.

A truly unique feature of this property is access to the historical pool house built by renowned architect George Washington Smith in 1927. The structure houses an indoor pool (not heated in the winter months), locker rooms and recreational room with pool table that is shared by the other homes in this coastal enclave. A tennis court is also available for guest use, rounding out the amenities list of this amazing home.

Indulge in a unique and unforgettable vacation experience. Come to Casa Blanca.

Very peaceful retreat. Lovely gardens. Love all the windows and doors. Visited every beach from 1000 stairs (Hendry's/Arroyo Burro) to Rincon. Gorgeous beaches!
