Overview

About the property

This beautiful home can sleep up to 6 persons with use of Guest Cottage.

Located in the hills above of Santa Barbara between the city and the sea, this authentic adobe was built in the mid 1950's by master Adobero, Senor Aguilar. With panoramic views of the city and mountains and a peek of harbor, this welcoming home will provide you with the quintessential Santa Barbara vacation! You enter the property through old Mesquite Gates and descend to the private courtyard, complete with fountain, citrus trees and barbecue. This is a perfect spot for morning coffee, afternoon naps or a casual dinner. The main house has two bedrooms, each with a private bath. The master has a king bed, and the second bedroom has a queen. The kitchen is beautifully appointed with a Viking range and professional appliances for any discriminating cook. On the view side of the property you will find a terrace and 'sit in' stone fire pit with stunning vistas of the city and mountains. The property also has a guest cottage that can accommodate two more persons. It contains an extra long twin trundle, full bath, and secluded terrace with mountain and city views. (PLEASE NOTE THAT THE USE OF THE GUEST COTTAGE IS AVAILABLE FOR RENTALS OVER 30 DAYS AND UPON REQUEST, EXTRA CHARGES APPLY. ALSO, IT IS NEVER RENTED TO A SEPARATE PARTY FROM THE MAIN HOME. ) The home is less than a 7 min drive to the beach or downtown and has three flat screen TV's with satellite HD TV service, internet access, central heat and off street parking. All guests must sign a 31-day lease term. If for some reason you are not able to book your dates, please contact me for other availabilities and any special offers or discounts.

Welcome to Santa Barbara! Imagine London, Sydney or Buenos Aires - great food, great shopping, great culture. Now shrink it to about 20 square miles. Delete traffic and noisy, crowded streets. Keep the pedestrian-friendly, easy-to-get-around part plus the great architecture. Add wine. Now surround it with beautiful mountains, rolling valleys and miles of beautiful beach. Don't forget beautiful hotels and outstanding restaurants! Welcome to the American Riviera®.

Whatever your passion, there's always something to do in Santa Barbara, which combines big city culture with backwoods outdoor adventures, all set off by a culinary tradition that puts its name and flavors on the lips of food and wine critics across the country.

Love the outdoors? Ride horses, wind or waves! Patron of the arts? Explore our galleries and year-round arts events. Shopping? Food? Wine? Wellness? Family fun? It's all here, to explore on your own or with guided tours, served up in a laid-back elegance that's distinctively Santa Barbara.

This charming adobe is located above the Bel Air Knolls and at the edge of Elings Park. Very private and quiet but only minutes from the beach or downtown. The exact address will be given once booking is confirmed.

Wow, what a special property

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for five nights in mid-August. It is absolutely as lovely as it appears in the photos, except that the photos don't quite capture the remarkable character and charm of the place, and the view from the back porch is even better than it looks in the pix. It very much feels like a home, rather than a typical rental property. The house is extremely well equipped, with a terrific cook's kitchen and has so many lovely, comfortable places to park yourself that it's hard to decide where to relax with your book - will it be the back patio with the expansive view overlooking Santa Barbara, the lovely courtyard with the fountain and its resident hummingbirds, the outdoor fire pit or that comfy sectional couch in front of the great room fireplace when the evening cools down?

This was our first visit to Santa Barbara and the location was a bit of a question mark for us, but we ended up extremely pleased with it - the house is beautifully sited on the hill, very private and peaceful but a quick drive to downtown. Downtown is fun but it was nice to get away from the crowds at the end of the day.

Highly recommend an afternoon at the wineries around Los Olivos (we especially loved Beckmen Vineyards), the farmers market and hitting the historical sites including the local history museum, which we stumbled upon while doing the red tile walking tour - the museum doesn't seem to get any ink but we enjoyed it quite a bit. We also enjoyed hiking in Gould Park although that is one of the most confusing, anonymous public spaces I have ever been - one of the area's best kept secrets, and I think they want to keep it that way.
