Surround yourself with true Santa Barbara beauty as you find total relaxation at this peaceful and tranquil Mediterranean Villa located on over 13 sprawling acres of impeccably landscaped gardens including exotic flowers, sunken gardens and avocado and fruit trees. Take in the unbelievable views of the Pacific Ocean, Channel Islands and incredible sunsets, which can be seen from almost any room in the residence. The villa features over 14,000 square feet of living space including eight-bedrooms, eight and a half baths, grand scale entertaining areas, formal dining room, recreation room with a poker, black jack, air hockey table, pool table, wet bar and an adjacent 27 seat movie theater. The elegant living room and formal dining room have soaring wood-beamed ceilings, and the two walls of French doors provide dramatic ocean views and access to beautiful terraces and fountain courtyard. These elements expand the living room and dining room for alfresco entertaining.
We had our children , spouses & 14 grandkids ages 1 to 24. The house couldn't have been more perfect . If you want a relaxing, peaceful, beautiful place to go, this is the house for you
This home is beautiful and even more grand in person. We had a large group from ages ranging from 70 to 5 and all of us found something new to do on the property everyday. From watching movies in the theater, swimming in the heated pool, reading a book on the labyrinth, to having a glass of wine on the patio overlooking the city as the sun was setting, we all enjoyed every moment spent on the property.The staff was courteous and respectful and the home was incredibly clean and the grounds were very well maintained. We definitely plan to come back again next year as a family and relax on this incredible estate.
The property is not really 8 bedrooms so be sure to confirm your needs before booking. (A bedroom is a room with both a bed and a closet ... three of their "bedrooms" have no closets.) The pool house supposedly houses two bedrooms but a loft room with no closet hardly qualifies.
Also, with a property as big and expensive as this one, you would be surprised to find all the missing elements. There is no sound system that allows you to enjoy your playlists throughout the house and entertainment areas. The screening room is great but a broken delivery system leaves much to be desired. The house in general needs new carpet (placing area rugs over dirty carpet is just gross) and a good cleaning. We lowered a shade in the master suite bathroom only to have much dirt (years worth) fall to the floor. There should be daily housecleaning like in a five star hotel and that should be included in the price. There should be loads of pool towels for guests use. The game room is great until you realize that the jukebox does not work and the air hockey table is subpar at best.
Beware. The pictures are nice but they were taken years ago and the bedroom situation is not at all accurate. There are FIVE bedrooms. And these 5 should all have KING sized beds in them. Only two of them have king beds is them. Also, two of them have little beds for kids I guess but unless your kids are tiny, they would never sleep there. The sleeping arrangements listed are terribly misleading.
Overall, until they do some major upgrades, keep looking. Four nights was enough to allow this review to be taken very seriously.
Could not have been better. Incredible location, spotless, elegant facilities, and activities for all ages. Claudia made the rental process a breeze. Not going to wait 50 years to get the family together there again.
We found new nooks, crannies and hideaway places everyday, including the last one...and all were intriguing, lovely, fun and offered something for everyone in our very large party.
It was headquarters for our family and wedding party and within easy reach of downtown and the Montecito CC, where we held the reception.
All our guests were amazed and delighted with the house, the pool area and the expansive grounds. The view was breathtaking, overlooking the sloping hills to the sea.
The perfect setting for any event with room to spare.
