Santa Barbara County House Rental Photos and Description

Panoramic views of the Riviera, Ocean and Islands set on an acre that feels like you are in a Santa Barbara Park.

Coveted for the rural feel of the area, close to downtown, the El Cielito neighborhood is a magical place. Hiking, biking and walking trails make it easy to enjoy some of the most beautiful scenery and views in Santa Barbara. It is here that you will find this meticulously maintained property infused with golden light. This architecturally interesting home displays a wood and glass theme nestled in privacy and serenity. With over an acre of land and more than 100 trees and stunning sandstone boulders.

This Mid Century Modern home is defined by the quality of light and shadow and the casual lifestyle, modernism is a perfect style for Santa Barbara promoting harmony between shelter and nature. It offers an environment that is both relaxed and sophisticated…dramatic and beautiful. Ideal southern exposure brings the morning sun at daybreak and magnificent sunsets at day’s end. An atmosphere of warmth and coziness is created by the redwood interiors and amber tones of light with tall 10 ft ceilings throughout. Surrounded by windows, the inviting living room has a magnificent marble fireplace. The kitchen is spacious enough for both cooks and guests to congregate around the center island or breakfast table. And the kitchen has its own fireplace for warmth and ambience.

The house has 3 bedrooms and 3 baths, Living Room, Office and Den. One room has a King, the other two rooms have Queen beds as well as one room has an additional couch bed. There is a Futon bed in the office/den. Flat screen TV’s in the living room, den and kitchen with cable, Netflix, DVD players and WIFI. There are hardwood floors in the living room, bedrooms, kitchen and formal dining area. It is bright and clean. We aim to please! You will find fresh crisp linens in all rooms, soft white towels in the bathrooms and nice kitchenware to prepare your meals.

The outdoor space is very inviting with a brand new Jacuzzi brand jacuzzi with great massage jets and plenty of seating. There is lovely outdoor patio area to enjoy meals al fresco. There are plenty of fun activities on the property for all ages including Bocci Ball, Basketball, Ping Pong, Frisbee golf or just climbing rocks and trees on a private acre. It's like being at your own destination resort!

From this location you are less than 2 miles to the Mission, 3 miles to the center of Town and the Beach is about 3.5 miles away. You are two blocks from Sheffield reservoir and Parma Park and some of the best hiking trails are above us near Scholfield Park and the Rattlesnake hiking trail.

Enjoy an amazing home and make memories to last a lifetime in this spectacular get away!

Best of Both Worlds!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing home, even more beautiful than the website photos show! Just a short drive from the beach, we loved making the drive to and from the house during our week's stay, with its winding curves and scenic views. Having stayed at several VRBO homes, this one rates at the top of our list for a return visit. We loved the peaceful setting, attention to detail in all the amenities, and the warm and inviting environment. It all gave us a true sense of feeling right at home. Lisa and Nick went above and beyond to make sure we fully enjoyed our stay at their beautiful home!

Stunning Property in Amazing Town

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough good things in our stay at this property. Had kids and grandparents and everyone had such a fantastic time. Best stocked kitchen I've ever stayed at of a VRBO property. Superb communication with owners. Hot tub, ping pong, bocce court, wildlife...this house has it all. And in a great vacation spot. I have worked in Santa Barbara for close to 3 years but never 'stayed' there....between restaurants, beaches, outdoor family is begging to go back.

Amazing home and property

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely beautiful home with amazing property and plenty to do to keep the family entertained - perfect if you have teenagers. Large kitchen, huge fridge, wonderful bbq, big jacuzzi, lots of seating, and comfy beds. We had 8 folks and lots of cars and there was plenty of space for all of us. The house had everything you could possibly need. Our host was easy to reach if we had questions. We all said we'd love to come back again.

Southern Calif.

Wonderful tree top home with spectacular views.

  • 5 of 5

The property description, location and amenities are all accurately provided in the VRBO web site. Large home with great space for all. Beds are super comfy and the home is very clean. We were in Santa Barbara for our daughter's wedding and were only able to spend 2 nights. Would have really enjoyed all the outdoor activities if we had more time. I hope we can return again to relax and take in all the beauty this home has to offer.

Gorgeous, Clean, & Serene

  • 5 of 5

I booked this reservation for a girls weekend in March 2016. The property was perfect! Lisa was accommodating and responsive throughout the process as this was my first VRBO rental. She also provided detailed instructions that were easy to follow regarding operation of many of the home's features (including: hot tub, fully lit outdoor space, fireplace, etc.). She also provided a number of pamphlets and recommendations for activities in the area. The entire process was no fuss - simple, easy, & predictable.

The house is very close to downtown Santa Barbara, but feels worlds away from the hustle and bustle. It is extremely serene with comfortable beds, great linens, clean modern bathrooms, and a great kitchen for prepping meals and hanging out. There is ample space in the driveway for cars to park which was a big bonus for us as we had 6 vehicles to park.

My favorite part: The windows! There is natural light throughout the house that makes it feel like you are staying in a treehouse...with mid-century modern decor and updated amenities. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
