Mission Canyon 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!

The perfect, serene Santa Barbara get-away

  • 5 of 5

We loved this home. We did a family vacation with our two sons and their fiancé a group of six. It was perfect. The house is immaculate and well-kept. The owner provided for every detail, including soaps, plenty of towels and a well-equipped kitchen. We enjoyed long family meals in the dining room, relaxing afternoons playing boche ball and ping pong in the large, peaceful yard and evenings playing cards and games. We used the hot tub every evening before going to bed. The house is nestled in the hills above the mission. It provides a feeling of seclusion yet it is located close to downtown. It is an inexpensive Uber ride to downtown and the Funk Zone. We took a day trip to Solvang and Los Olivos....a wonderful excursion. We highly recommend this property.

A very special place, conveniently located

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely gorgeous home that feels like your own private resort. Our family (two adults, three children) had an amazing vacation staying here. The huge yard with amenities like basketball court, bocce ball court and ping pong table was a hit with the kids. The house is filled with natural light throughout the day, and at night, the outdoor lights make the property feel absolutely magical. We really appreciated the abundant supply of fluffy white towels and the basket of beach towels ready to go. The kitchen is HUGE and incredibly well-stocked (there was a Vitamix! We made smoothies every morning!). In short, we loved Lisa & Nick's house and hope to return again on a future visit to Santa Barbara.

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.
