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.

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.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful, cozy, spotlessly clean apartment in an absolutely gorgeous location. The property owners are onsite and available to answer questions, but are not at all intrusive. The apartment is very tastefully furnished with lovely antiques and art, and the view from the private patio is breathtaking. Can't wait to return!

Beautiful and Peaceful Santa Barbara retreat

  • 5 of 5

My adult daughter and I spent 4 nights at this lovely home. Located in the Upper Riviera section of Santa Barbara it has amazing views of SB and the ocean. The unit is very clean and cozy. Plenty of linens, pots/pans/dishes, paper products and a lovely welcome basket with coffee and other goodies.The beds are comfy and the loft with its own sitting area and view is wonderful. Wolfgang, the owner lives on the premises and is there to help you with whatever you need. However, he is also completely unobtrusive if you don't! It is about a 10 minutes drive down to State Street and the ocean. We didn't mind the quick drive down (its beautiful) and loved coming back to the peace and quiet after the hustle and bustle of downtown. We took an Uber several times at night with no problem (about $8.00 one way). Have your morning coffee and evening wine on the patio looking at the ocean and red tile roofs, go to the ocean, visit the historic sites, eat at amazing restaurants. If you are thinking about visiting Santa Barbara (and you should!) and want more than a sterile hotel room, then stay at Villa Luna.

A piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The place was comfortable, well kept, very clean and had everything we needed for our 4 day/3 night stay. The view of the city & ocean were spectacular from this location. Wolfgang and Deanna were so helpful and friendly; they really made us feel welcomed. We will return.
