Summer Hill Retreat - Contemporary Ocean-View Comfort

Perched on the scenic hillside in Summerland, Summer Hill Retreat is a contemporary jewel on the coast just south of Montecito. In 2012, this 2-story home was completely redecorated in a sleek yet comfortable aesthetic, but it is the sweeping coastal views that ground this home in natural beauty.

Two Master Suites make practical sense in the smart floor plan of this versatile home. The 2-level design offers two separate but connected living spaces, each with it's own private entrance.

Interior colors ranging from cool nautical blues to sandy neutrals echo the natural tones of the sand and surf of this beachside town. The main floor is bright with high ceilings, and a wall of glass doors is the only separation between the Great Room and the blue coastal waters and Channel Islands beyond. On a clear day you really can see forever!

A wood burning fireplace is the focus of the Living Room and faces comfortable seating on the large sectional sofa or the double-wide chaise. For working professionals, the large desk space in the adjacent entry is the perfect place to stay organized on a working vacation, while still enjoying the camaraderie of the main living spaces and the beautiful views. The glass Dining Room table seats 8 and, surrounded by corner windows, feels as though you are dining outside high above the ocean.

Step through the sliding glass doors of the Great Room to the wrap-around deck with its several different vantage points to enjoy the views. A seating area with barbecue is conveniently located near a side door to the kitchen, and another long stretch of the South facing deck is just perfect for seasonal whale-watching.

The galley Kitchen, with blue color-washed cabinets is equipped with all the necessary culinary items for great meals and entertaining. A Breakfast Bar adds additional seating and opens the space to the social life that may be enlivening the Great Room.

Cool colors of the ocean create a calming effect to soothe the mind and calm the spirit when you enter the Master Suite. This airy space is furnished with a king-size bed and has a full bathroom. Glass doors open to the more private side of the wrap-around deck; a great place to enjoy morning coffee or afternoon tea.

The second upstairs Bedroom has a queen-size bed with a twin trundle. Sliding doors offer convenient access to the wrap-around deck. A hall bathroom serves this bedroom and is also convenient to the main living area.

Downstairs, an apartment-style design offers the perfect set-up for a second family to have a great space all their own. The Master Suite has a queen size bed, sitting area, full kitchen and bathroom. Sliding doors open to the large lower covered balcony where guests may enjoy dining al fresco or relaxing on the hammock or comfortable seating areas.

A second bedroom on the lower level has a queen-size bed tucked quietly away in a private alcove that can be closed off with canvas curtains. The adjacent sitting area then becomes a great sitting room or an additional bedroom for overflow sleeping arrangements on the day bed . This room also opens to the lower balcony, and a convenient hall bathroom is nearby.

Summerland is a quaint seaside town full of life and charm. Just down the hill from Summer Hill Retreat are great local restaurants, beach shops, antique stores and unique fine mercantile. Treat yourself to a hearty breakfast on the porch at Summerland Beach Cafe, sip local wines at the Summerland Winery, stroll down to the beach and kick back for the day or, if it's more your style, for a glorious sunset picnic. Whatever activities you choose, Summer Hill Retreat will be the perfect beginning and ending to a memorable seaside vacation.

We had an awesome time in this house! I was comfy, beautiful and great quality! I wish we could come back for every vacation. Now we are going to our home in Chile but we are never going to forget the good moments we had in here!

Summer Hill Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had the most delightful time! Our married daughter was happy that the weather kept us indoors, as we were able to just relax, eat, play games, and be together. It was a gift to our 8 children. (I actually wanted to write a personal note in the Guest Book, but in the hustle to zip out the door, forgot.) It was comfortable, had a well-supplied kitchen, lots of nooks to have small visiting spots, a wonderfully open living/dining/kitchen for all of us to hang together, plenty of counter space to prepare meals, great dishes/silverware, easy to use tv/dvd player, and way more! We had such a quick response when we had an issue with the heater, and were even given some wood to burn to keep us warm while we waited. I would love to stay here again. Thank you to the owners for opening your home for us to rent.

Breathtaking!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here to avoid the expensive hotels in Santa Barbara and it was well worth it! We had 4 couples stay here and the price per night per couple was the equivalent to a Motel 6! Not only was the place phenomenal with all 4 rooms having their own bath but 3 of the 4 had their own panamoric view of the ocean and island across the way. With that being said the views were phenomenal! Also, two houses down was a public trail where it would take you right to the main road to the beach but that same path goes up into the hills for some of the most beautiful views you'd ever see! It's easily accessible to the highway and a short commute to Santa Barbara (15 minutes)! Anyone considering traveling with friends this is well worth it!

Wonderful home, location, view off porch, and time!

  • 5 of 5

Six of us thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay at Summer Hill Retreat last weekend. With four spacious bedrooms, each effectively with their own bathroom/shower combo, it was like we had our own micro hotel. All we could have asked for was found in the kitchen, and living spaces inside and out were perfect for the nice 72 degree days. And what a view of the ocean Channel Islands off the huge decks. Santa Barbara was not far away, and we enjoyed the wine district as well as the State Street - definitely tons of fun. Also great was the Summerland Cafe, just down the hill - a must stop for breakfast. There is a nice trail from the house right down to it! And not much more walking from there to the beach. All and all, a wonderful time for all.

A wonderful place for a getaway

  • 4 of 5

The layout of the house was perfect for both sets of grandparents and our family of 5. A bright, spacious and extremely clean place... We have rented a number of homes over the years and this one is the best stocked with kitchen supplies and nice towels. The only issue we had was the downstairs had a musty smell that I suspect was from previous water damage. Management responded right away and had a dehumidifier and air purifier installed but the smell was still quite present in the carpeted downstairs bedroom. If the water damaged areas are completely removed and repaired, this home would get 5+ stars in my book.

Perfect for our group

  • 5 of 5

We all had our own bed and bathroom, a big plus for us. Getting out of the driveway was a bit troubling. This house was exceptionally equipped. Our weeks stay was excellent. We would recommend this property to everyone . We would come back to this rental again.

Great Time in Summerland

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Summer Hill Retreat was absolutely great. There was nothing we wanted for as the house was fully equipped. Our group consisted of four adults, but having separate bedrooms and baths gave everyone their privacy which was important to each of us. The common areas were great with plenty of room both indoors and outdoors. I would definetly recommend this property to others.
