Mira Vista exceeds expectations!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I hosted 3 other couples who are friends from TX, NY, & AZ. Mira Vista was the perfect setting for our reunion. The location in the Mesa overlooking Santa Barbara is breathtaking. The home is lovely... well appointed for a group to share common areas as well as king or queen bedrooms with en suite bathrooms for privacy. The kitchen is fully equipped for entertaining inside and out. We had a fabulous local chef come in the first night...made for a wonderful, relaxing evening. Massages for all the next day at Mira Vista was also a highlight. Much of our time was spent outside enjoying the natural beauty around us. Santa Barbara & Montecito are both charming, offering great restaurants and specialty shops. We will definitely return to Mira Vista or one of the other properties offered by Invited Home. Of all the sites that I researched, Invited Home is the most professional and has personnel who are both knowledgeable and accommodating.

Absolutely Amazing

  • 5 of 5

When my girlfriends and I pulled up into driveway and hopped out of the car, we started jumping up and down like we were 13 years old and going to our first dance. The views are incredible and the layout of the house is perfect for relaxing or entertaining. I was here with my daughters, sister and closest friends to celebrate my 50th birthday. The location is perfect and close to everything. We rode our bikes all the way to Montecito for lunch one day. The outdoor fireplace was the perfect way to unwind at the end of the day. The linens on the beds were some of the most coziest I've ever slept in, it was hard to get out of bed. The only thing that was a drag was the theatre room, we couldn't get the projector to work. (this part of the house needs a little updating), but it wasn't that big of a deal because the tv in the family room is plenty big. I will recommend this place and will definitely book again. Thank you for sharing your little slice of paradise, I will never forget my 50th bday.

Until next time, Michele K. from Mammoth Lakes

Beautiful, spacious and quiet retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay here and this home exceeded our expectations. Great, spacious indoor and outdoor spaces for hanging out. The bedrooms were extremely quiet and had blackout shades, so we all got great sleep. The location is just a few minutes drive to downtown Santa Barbara and the view can't be beat!

Clean and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful memory filled week at this estate. The house is well designed and every need was available. Owner has insane taste from decor to the amount of amazing dishes and stemware available. Many a night was spent by the outdoor fireplace overlooking a stunning view. The location was perfection. Not one thing was amiss and loved having two laundry rooms!!

Beautiful home, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Mira Vista for our daughter's graduation from college and were thrilled! This is an incredible home with beautiful yet comfortable furnishings, stunning views of Santa Barbara, and a great location near State Street, the beaches, and grocery stores. It was very well stocked with amenities, such as towels, sheets, dishes, and kitchen supplies. We also loved the theater room, outdoor BBQ, and spa. With 4 separate en-suite bedrooms, this was a perfect choice for 8 adults, and was much more enjoyable then renting hotel rooms. We hope to return soon!

Fantastic home and great location!

  • 5 of 5

First off, when walking into the home, you feel like you've just walked into a Restoration Hardware showroom. The house was clean, very well furnished, and very comfortable and spacious. The bedrooms all have their own bathrooms, and allowed for an appropriate amount of privacy.

There were plenty of towels to use after jumping out of the hot tub (which was just perfect during the brisk Santa Barbara evenings).

The outdoor fireplace created the perfect ambiance while having drinks and overlooking Santa Barbara in the evening.

We rented some Red Box movies and watched them in the theater room, which was easy to set up using the provided instructions found on the projector.

Plus, there is an avocado orchard with countless trees on the property!

This house was <2 miles from all the activities that we had planned in downtown, so it was always just a short 5-10 minute drive to get to wherever we wanted to go. This location really couldn't be any better.

I would definitely stay here again if I were to go back to Santa Barbara with a group of friends or family. It really felt like home.
