If your ideal vacation home is one that is folded into the landscape, one that allows you to be in tune with nature without having to worry about poison oak, then you can't do much better than Creekside Haven, a home that is so much a part of its surroundings that the rocks in the stone fireplace actually come from the creek that runs alongside the house.

Elevated among the ferns and surrounded by tall oaks, this creekside home provides a welcome respite from the bustle of daily life and the crowded neighborhoods of the waterfront district. Though you’ll feel a world apart, this gorgeous, custom-designed, radial home is centrally located, with the downtown area only two miles away and the Santa Barbara Mission and Rose Gardens within easy walking distance. A nature lover’s dream, this unique property is located just minutes from Santa Barbara’s most popular hiking trails. For those looking for something more than a cookie cutter vacation rental, this beautiful one-acre property is a paradise found.

With 2000 square feet of living space and multiple outdoor seating areas, this home is well suited for small families and couples traveling together. The great room downstairs features plush sofas and armchairs centered around a huge stone fireplace, creating a comfortable area for enjoying a glass of wine in the evening or watching a movie at night. The guest bedroom downstairs features patio doors leading out to the deck and spa in the backyard. A beautiful spiral staircase (with rope handrails) leads up to a small landing with a double futon that precedes the master bedroom, which features a private deck with lovely creek views when it's flowing. A separate studio offers a large custom desk in the entry and a daybed for extra guests. Enjoy your escape to Santa Barbara in this exquisite home and you’ll find yourself eagerly planning your return to our Creekside Haven.

                                                            Peaceful relaxing home in a great private setting!

                                                            Dan F.

                                                            Creekside haven was a nice place for our short time in Santa Barbara. Great location to many of the areas we wanted to see. Well stocked kitchen and comfortable interior settings. Outdoor decks could have used a little more cleaning, decks were dirty but truly not the end of the world by any means. Lots of spider webs both inside and out... girls didn't like that! overall we would recommend this home to anyone visiting Santa Barbara who is looking for a quite, private setting, close to so many of santa Barbaras attractions. We will be requesting this home again the near future!

                                                            Jennifer W.

                                                            Loved everything about our stay - the open area, kitchen, gorgeous grounds, hot tub and more! The linens (not the ones on the beds, but the extras) smelled a little musty and had some dust on them. I probably wouldn't have noticed if I hadn't had to make up the sofabed/futon, and the only reason I had to make that up is because my son wouldn't stay in the 3rd bedroom, because it's completely detached from the home. That wasn't completely clear to me when renting, but it didn't matter in the slightest, as he loved the futon, and we had an extra room for an overnight guest! The whole place is so uniquely done and private, private, private!! We just loved our time here - we would come back!!

                                                            Thanks so much for your feedback. We're so sorry about the confusion on the detached guest house. We've added a room layout to our website to remedy this and hopefully prevent others from the same confusion. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and we'd love to have you again.

                                                            Lovely custom home in a central location

                                                            Our family of six thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Creekside Haven. The home is unique, well-kept and beautifully landscaped (even without the grass!). It is within walking distance of the historic Santa Barbara Mission, the Museum of Natural History, and the Santa Barbara Botanical Gardens. Many other amenities and activities are a relatively easy drive from the house. Would have been nice to be a bit closer to the coast (just for the kids' sake) but we made it work! Management was great in answering questions we had and in helping us secure our reservation. Would definitely recommend this property to others looking for a quiet, peaceful get away to the Santa Barbara area.
