About the property

house, 3000 sq. ft., 4 bedrooms, Sleeps 8, 4 bathrooms

There’s much to see and even more to do at this scenic Santa Barbara estate. So what do you feel like doing today? Relaxing on the patio or in your private jacuzzi while enjoying a panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean? Taking a leisurely stroll through the expansive garden in your backyard or one of the nearby foothill trails? Maybe take a daytrip to wine country just 30 minutes away. The possibilities are endless when you’re at Ocean Vista Retreat.

The modern, spacious, well-appointed interiors and patios provide relaxation in whichever room you're enjoying. So kick back and relax. And the expansive windows overlooking the water certainly don’t hurt either. With 3,000 square feet of home and 1.25 acres at your disposal, your whole family will love the run of the place. Featuring 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths, you can comfortably sleep eight. But sleeping will be the last thing on your mind as you’re just 5 minutes from La Cumbre Shopping Mall and 10 minutes from Hendry’s Beach. And, of course, the easy access to wine country is always welcomed.

This home is beautifully furnished and tastefully decorated, complete with a Great room and a kitchen that has an island with additional seating perfectly suited for breakfast or enjoying a glass of wine. So gather the family around. The living room is just off the main area with two sofas and a leather chair with a large flat screen television mounted on the wall (useful when you’re not enjoying your gorgeous view). The main floor of the home has a queen-sized master bedroom and two queen-sized bedrooms, fully furnished of course. Head downstairs and you’ll find a king-sized guest suite studio with access out to the private patio. But you may just want to keep that room to yourself. Because this is truly California comfort at its best.

Pets are welcomed at this home with appropriate screening and accompanying pre-authorization.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My family spent 2 months last summer at the Ocean Vista Retreat while our home here in Santa Barbara was undergoing renovations. We were immediately at home with the huge kitchen and great room and it's panoramic views from the entire upstairs/main floor. We enjoyed nearly every meal on the deck and still talk about dinners watching the sunset over the ocean. We could have stayed anywhere in SB, but chose this beautiful home for it's quiet neighborhood, convenient location and incredible views! Our family enjoyed hikes starting from the neighborhood trail head, and the central location made getting anywhere in town easy. The entire home is beautifully decorated and great room and outdoor spaces make it perfect for entertaining even large groups.

Wonderful home for a family get away!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time celebrating my Mom's 70th birthday in this beautiful home! The views are stunning and the layout allowed our family to enjoy time together while still having plenty of space for people to engage in separate activities and conversations. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook an elaborate meal, and the hot tub was clean and easy to use with a gorgeous view.

Relaxing Get Away

  • 5 of 5

The Ocean Vista Retreat has a floorpan that is very nicely spread out and comfortable to live in. It is beautifully landscaped with gorgeous views.

We had reservations at restaurants for two of the nights we were there but cancelled them once we got to the home since it was such a great place in which to hang out.

There is a gas grill on the patio which has a roomy table for meals, market lights and a heater that throws out a lot of heat.

The neighborhood is quiet and pretty and hiking trails are minutes away.

The house was very clean and well stocked with all items you would need to cook and eat.

I would rent Ocean Vista Retreat again and highly recommend it to my friends.

Beautiful Family Home in the Foothills

  • 4 of 5

Ocean Vista Retreat was a perfect gathering place for our family birthday party. The location just off Foothill Rd, is close to downtown and Goleta. Hiking trails are right out the door and getting around Santa Barbara is easy. The deck has a gorgeous view to the Channel Islands with a bubbling fountain below. The home is spacious for groups, very clean and comfortable. The AC was a welcome relief after hot days at the beach. Everything was perfect, a very nice home for a family to enjoy Santa Barbara.
