About Wolfgang

This 1949 Louis Lancaster designed home, was renovated in 2000 in a Mediterranean style to provide guest quarters and a ceramic artist studio. As an ceramic artist, onsite potter and teacher I find this bit of paradise inspirational.

Wolfgang purchased this apartment in 1983

Guestbook comments from the owner

A beautiful location: fantastic views of gardens and a very well equipped and comfortable apartment. A great place to celebrate our son's graduation as a family.

Thanks-we had a wonderful stay.

Great

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a comfortable stay at Villa Luna. The apartment is attractive and well supplied. There is a private patio that looks out to the Channel Islands and downtown Santa Barbara. If you enjoy taking walks there are plenty of opportunities. We will definitely stay here again.wolfgang was a friendly, helpful and gregarious host.

We loved our stay at Villa Luna !

  • 5 of 5

This property is amazing, beautiful views and garden area. We were only there for a few days and didn't get as much time as we would have liked to just hang out at this property. The apartment was perfect, everything you would need, spacious, clean and comfortable. Location is great with easy access to downtown. Very much looking forward to returning one day soon!! Highly recommended !

Above and beyond

  • 5 of 5

Wolfgang and Dienna went well above and beyond in making this trip memorable and making us feel welcome.

My wife and I travelled to Santa Barbara for our honeymoon. Wolfgang had welcomed us with a bottle of champagne. The weather is great in August, around 70s. Santa Barbara is a clean fun city with plenty to do. There is a plethora of restraunts for ranging from sea food to Mexican.

The activities in the city include hiking, bike rentals in town and for trails, the beaches, shopping, wine tasting, and a historical mission.

Villa Luna is located on the upper end of a mountain with an outstanding view of the ocean. The garden is secluded and well maintained. The privacy it afforded was a welcome change to staying in hotels.

I would recommend this location and the Villa Luna to any who wish to have a relaxing and entertaining vacation.

Relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

This well appointed cottage was perfect for my husband and I. It is located in a beautiful neighborhood overlooking Santa Barbara. It feels very private and secluded yet it is within 10-15 minutes of the beach, state street with shopping and restaurants and all Santa Barbara has to offer. Lots of amazing restaurants to choose from or you can enjoy the cottage and Barbecue. Wolfgang was very easy to work with and very accommodating. Lots of little extras. We loved eating outside on the patio and watching and listening to the chipmunks and the birds. Deanna supplied bird food and I was able to fill the bird feeder to get a free nature show. The shower had just the perfect water pressure and temperature after venturing out all day. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. There isn't any air conditioning but we didn't need it. We kept the windows open to allow the cool breezes in. It is such a nice cottage we hated to leave. We also enjoyed the fireplace on our anniversary. We hope to return and stay in this home away from home cottage in the future.
