Viewpoint - A Breath of Fresh Air on the Riviera

Offering a fresh perspective with color, sophistication and fun, Viewpoint will make a lasting impression in the minds of every guest, surrounding them in luxury and thoughtful comfort. The stunning architecture combines industrial elements of glass and steel with more natural choices of wood, slate, and grey-toned stucco, creating perfect visual balance.

Keeping the design eye focused clearly on comfort and quality, the home's interiors have been carefully selected. A color palette of bright hues is set against a background of rich wood, creamy linen fabrics, and buttery neutrals; every room tells a unique story. Ultimately, it is the unsurpassed coastal views from nearly every space that solidifies the home as a World Class vacation destination.

Immediately upon entering, guests will be drawn out to the glass-enclosed deck suspended above the city lights and coastline below. An outdoor Living Room with fireplace, barbecue and dining table is truly the heart of the home. Stairs lead conveniently down to the lower level, where guests will be delighted by the championship style Bocce Ball court. The playing surface of crushed oyster shells makes this a clever and playful opportunity for a little healthy competition amid the relaxing elements of the well-executed landscape. Those not engaged in play can stroll the walking path through the hillside lavender garden, or harvest from the herb garden filled with culinary inspiration!

The Formal Dining and Living Rooms continue with the opulent, colorful theme of jewel tone colors and distinctive style that is unique to this home. An enclosed patio with tranquil water features adds a peaceful, Zen-like quality to the modern space.

The Family Room and Kitchen create an informal gathering place, again with more spectacular views as the backdrop. The Kitchen, as expected in a home of this caliber, is fully equipped with all new professional-style appliances and gourmet gadgets to create delicious meals while having fun in the process.

Nearby, the Office is the perfect escape for working professionals needing a quiet, secluded space. With the addition of a sofa sleeper, TV and private outside patio, it becomes a practical guest retreat as well.

With two luxurious Master Suites, the home is an ideal choice for 2 families or vacationing couples. Through a wall of windows, the Master Suite on the main level offers a luxurious king-size Tempur-Pedic Cloud Supreme bed and fireplace. From sunrise to sunset, guests will enjoy ocean and city views. The Master Bathroom, with pass through walk-in closet, is spacious and bright with a private door leading to the ultra private spa patio.

Downstairs, the second Master Suite is equally luxurious with fireplace, king-size bed, 60" Smart TV, refrigerator, and en suite marble Bathroom. A wall of bi-fold doors disappears to create a seamless blending of the suite and the waiting ocean view terrace. The 3rd Bedroom on this level offers ocean views, en suite Bathroom, and doors leading to the terrace with tranquil fountain and seating just outside.

Absolutely no detail has been overlooked in the transformation process that created this one of a kind vacation experience. This home is nearly too good to be true; guests will have an impeccable and unforgettable experience on America's Riviera. Viewpoint does NOT disappoint!

Guestbook comments from the manager

(Transcribed from guestbook at property)

What a comfortable, delightful few days we enjoyed here! This was a perfect home base for our two families to celebrate Father's Day, two birthdays and a graduation. We will remember this get-away for its laughter and relaxation - Bocce Ball "tournament" with our daughters were especially memorable highlights. How fortunate we feel that you've made available your spectacular home for others to appreciate. Besides the bacce ball court, we loved the view, the sliding doors, the variety of books to browse, the well organized and well stocked character of every room and the peaceful family-friendly atmosphere. Fantastic!

The best rental home I've seen

  • 5 of 5

This home was incredible! Not sure how this was possible, but it lived even better the pictures. The views are amazing and the home is tastefully decorated and stocked with everything you need. It was in such pristine condition it's hard to believe it's a rental. Santa Barbara has a lot of options but I'm pretty sure I'd stay here again on next visit. It was perfect!
