WELCOME TO YOUR LUXURY HOME: Villa Vista Bella – Classic Tuscan Estate in the Montecito Foothills

Please email or call Karen at 213.400.8511 to schedule your stay! SORRY, WE DO NOT ALLOW WEDDINGS AT OUR ESTATE.

Enjoying spectacular views overlooking the azure blue Santa Barbara Harbor and the Channel Islands, Villa Vista Bella is set in an area of outstanding natural beauty that sits on top of a mountain in the exclusive village of Montecito, California. At the end of a private lane is an impeccable Tuscan Villa nestled in the foothills of Montecito. This brand-new home (completed in 2010) was designed to take full advantage of the beautiful ocean, island and mountain views. From the rushing waterfalls and ponds you pass as you enter the property, to the commanding views from the veranda and infinity pool area, this property provides tranquil ambiance in grand style. The Mediterranean influence is evident in every detail of this notable property. A custom stone staircase from the motor court leads to the ten-foot-high arched iron and glass front door entry. Curved lines, Italian marble, hand painted frescos, and custom tile work all combine to create an authentic Tuscan experience.Sweeping views from the elegant living room become the backdrop for the upstairs living space. The living room boasts soaring ceilings, a robust fireplace, and a unique floor of inlaid Italian Nosiette tumbled marble and distressed Brazilian walnut hardwood. Enjoy the coastal view which melds into the waters of the infinity pool. The gourmet kitchen offers ease and convenience for family meals and entertaining. It has new professional-quality appliances, a prep sink, an Advantium microwave convection oven, and a spectacular double oven Thermador range. Adjacent to the kitchen is the family room with wet bar, casual dining table, 50” flat screen TV and fireplace. It promises to be a comfortable gathering place for everyone; complete with games and books.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay at Villa Vista Bella was the perfect way to spend our holiday week as a family. The amazing views and serene beauty provided the perfect setting to relax and enjoy ourselves. We enjoyed the city views, coastal views, mountain views, and views of the Channel Islands. We watched sunsets and admired the changing colors in the sky at dusk. The kids loved the pool, the spacious rooms, and especially the Christmas tree so that Santa did not forget them. My husband and I loved the fireplaces in so many rooms and spent many nights cozying next to them while watching the twinkling city lights. We enjoyed unwinding after a day of hiking or sightseeing in the spa every night. We filled up the home with a lot of laughter, love, and fun. Thank you for your wonderful service at your lovely estate!

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fantastic weekend at Villa Vista Bella. The house and grounds are beautiful. It was very nice to relax by the pool and to enjoy meals on the loggia while savoring the view. The property manager was very personable and professional. The home is very well-equipped including pool towels / toys. Thanks so much for allowing us to spend time in your wonderful home.

Wonderful time at Villa Vista Bella

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fantastic long weekend at Villa Vista Bella while in town for a friend's wedding at the nearby San Ysidro Ranch. The house is absolutely beautiful and the views down into the valley and out to the ocean are spectacular. The area is quiet and we enjoyed relaxing in the pool and dining on the lovely outdoor terrace. The house was luxurious, spacious, immaculately clean, and well-equipped with everything you might need. We hosted an impromptu dinner party for some fellow wedding guests and appreciated that the house was equipped enough to serve a large group. Our kids loved that even the pool came stocked with pool toys. It was wonderful time and we look forward to visiting Villa Vista Bella again soon!

The Best of Santa Barbara

  • 5 of 5

Pictures of this place do not even come close to describing this wonderful estate. I spend a lot of time traveling to the LA area and have had extended stays in various places and homes. This place, without a doubt, now heads the top of my list. The photos give you only a glimpse into this tranquil paradise. Every amenity that you expect from a 5-star place is here. The estate manager (Robert) is helpful and available for all your needs without being intrusive. The views (from nearly every vantage point in the home) down the canyon overlooking the coastline and Santa Barbara are unbelievable. The only negative about this place is having to leave. I will surely return!

Feel like a princess (or a prince) in this multi-million dollar estate

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the beautiful villa two separate times in April and May, for a total of about a month. Everthing was great. It is hard to imagine a more picturesque location. After a one mile drive up a scenic road, you enter between two waterfalls to the courtyard with its fountain. Everything is very Tuscan. Lots of TV's with cable, fireplaces, en-suite bedrooms, and a beautiful and well-maintained infinity pool with a view of the ocean and -- on a clear day -- the Channel Islands. We only had guests a couple of nights, but our guests appreciated their bedrooms with ensuite baths including a jacuzzi tub in every ensuite bath. Robert, the manager, always was around to help with any repairs or requests. Likewise, the owner responded immediately to any questions. Robert even found us a babysitter for one night. Really above and beyond the call of duty. Thanks so much for a lovely stay.
