We are an English family and moved here in 1993 as an experiment, and have been here ever since!

Owner purchased this house in 1996

We bought this property because we loved its situation and knew that after renovations it would be the house of our dreams. We extensively remodeled little by little and now its turned into more than we ever imagined.

What is unique about this property is that it is tucked away and is quiet, private and peaceful yet close by to everything ....shops, restaurants, beaches etc. Its wonderful to relax by the pool and see the mountains behind, or read in the hammock under the incredible oak tree., or dine by the fire on the patio ...

This house in a word is .... stunning. The photos don't do it justice and it far exceeded our expectations in every way! It is beautifully and tastefully decorated. Colette has thought of absolutely everything and made us feel at home as soon as we walked in. We spent our days lounging by the pool, playing tennis, ping pong, croquet and eating outside at night by the fire on the fabulous patio. The bedrooms are all comfy and cosy and the kitchen is fantastic - a chef's delight! We have rented many houses and this is the best yet. If you can't have fun at this house, good luck having fun elsewhere!

Can't recommend this house highly enough. It's great value and Colette was wonderful to work with, can't wait to come back. Thank you Colette for making our vacation so special!

My family and I stayed here one year and the next year I came back with some friends - which should pretty much say it all! It is a truly fabulous home and in a fantastic setting. To swim laps looking up at the mountains is wonderful.

It is a perfect place to gather the family (or a bunch of friends), to stop and recharge. The amenities are amazing - swimming, tennis, ping-pong, croquet. And when the lights go down the terrace fireplace and outside dining comes alive.

The beach is just down the round – Santa Barbara is just up the road and if you fancy a trip to L.A. its only an hour and a half away. There’s hiking in the mountains, kayaking on the Pacific, and wine touring in the Santa Ynez valley.

Thank-you Colette for sharing your beautiful and much loved home with us - it had everything we wanted and more.

This is a beautiful but also very comfortable home ... well equipped kitchen, comfy beds, great sheets, Colette has thought of everything down to the last detail. Tennis, ping pong, and a great pool kept the kids busy. Our evenings were spent out side sitting by the fire and eating under the stars. We have rented many homes and this has to be the best. We have already rented it for 2 of our family vacations and plan to come back again - we would highly recommend it to anyone coming to Santa Barbara.
Thank you for sharing your piece of paradise with us.

We stayed at this fantastic house for part of our vacation in USA. It is absolutely stunning and far surpassed what we were expecting. It is a gorgeous home, so comfortable and beautifully decorated -the pictures don't do it justice! We spent our days relaxing by the pool looking up at the amazing mountains, playing tennis, fighting for the hammock under the beautiful oak tree, playing ping pong and croquet and eating outside by the fireplace on the wonderful terrace.

This is the perfect location for visiting Santa Barbara. It has everything - we cant wait to come back!
