Midweek: 1 night minimum, so inquire.
This property and setting is unlike any other VRBO. This is an amazing property on a huge piece of land with a lawn as big as a soccer field, yet close to the beach. There are tons of tree swings throughout the immense property, a Zipline, Tarzan rope, gardens, trees, open acreage. The place is stocked with all sports equipment for fun on the amazing lawn as big as soccer field! Footballs, soccer balls, wiffle ball, Zarts, Bocce Ball, you name it, the equipment is there! Plan your family competition! Oak trees, an arboretum, 33 specimen roses, fruit trees, with expansive views from the large balcony overlooking your park like yard. Great for dogs, kids, and kids at heart.
2 minutes to Arroyo Burro/Hendry's Beach one of the very best in Santa Barbara, 5 mins to downtown, the Pier, the Wharf, State Street, Court House, and Mission. 10 minutes to the SB Airport next to UCSB.
The property is well maintained and very clean. Dogs are allowed, and great care is taken so you'd never know it! If you have a dog or dogs to bring along, they must be housebroken and not bark excessively.
There is a Zipline, tree swings, a Tarzan rope, cross train rope to climb, hammock, tetherball, and more---. It's a huge play land. FAMILIES WITH KIDS.
The rental is a 2 bedroom, 1 bath. 2 Queen Beds, 1 Rollaway and two futons so you can decide the sleeping arrangements. Maximum is 5 people, but I offer extra sleeping choices if people in your party want to sleep separately. There are extra linens and towels for ultra comfort during your stay, so you don't run out. HD TV's with DVD's in every room, high speed internet, and Cable TV. The layout is 2 private bedrooms separated by a hallway. One of the bedrooms has a full bath adjoining, and there is a kitchenette -- a microwave, 1/2 fridge/freezer, coffee maker. There is NOT a full kitchen.
The property is very near an amazing expansive sandy beach, Hendry's, framed by beautiful cliffs. A Dog beach is on the left side, Boathouse Restaurant and miles of beach to walk on the right. The Wilcox/Douglas Preserve is 5 mins away, a great dog park overlooking the ocean.
The property is extremely private in a very rural area, which is unusual since it's close to the beach and downtown. No neighbors can see in. The lawn is about one acre and is bordered by 27 acres of wild land. It is mainly fenced.
This rental is above the yard and overlooks it for a breathtaking view. There is a flagstone staircase to take you on a garden walk down to the yard, with the huge lawn, the zipline, rope swings, and relaxing time in the hammock.
Upon arrival, you will see a Butterfly Garden with special plants to sustain the life cycle of the endangered Monarch Butterfly. Caterpillars, and Chrysalis and flying Monarch's abound. Hummingbirds visit daily!
The specimen trees are amazing! Pick fruit for you stay: apples, plums, avocados, oranges, lemons, peaches, loquats.
There is a specimen rose garden of 33 never to be bred again roses saved from a historic garden. Enjoy their beauty and cut them for your stay to fragrance your property.
For larger groups, there is a second unit below (the entire structure is built into a hillside. The second unit is VRBO 401412, and is a 2 bed/1 bath. The yard is shared with the unit below. The yard is as big as a park, so there is plenty of room. People often ask about the sharing of the yard, and from my experience as a vacation rental manager there isn't much crossover. The entry to each unit is completely separated, private, and you may not see the other party except maybe on the driveway, which is shared, or in the play land yard. The yard is as big as a park. Manager/owner, if not traveling, may stay on site in a completely separate and private unit. In case of questions or issues, there is always a contact person to help.
For stays of 3 days or more, a housekeeper will come one of the days to clean and do wash and fold personal laundry, all included in the price.
The management of the unit is done by a good owner/manager, on site, with a 5 star rating.
Maximum occupancy for unit --- 5 people.
No students with wild parties. This is a special property for peaceful stays for romance, families, kids, puppies, reunions, but absolutely not a 'party' house.
Use of tree swings, ropes, hammock, zip line, all at your own risk, so parents tell your kids to be careful, and please supervise! It's a lot of fun for all, but be careful!
No events. No weddings.
Property is not childproofed inside or out. If you have a crawler, or toddler, please be advised that this property is not set up for the safety features necessary for young children. All electric is like a normal house - there are no toddler safety features added to this house, the deck outside was built before child safety codes, so openings in the fencing are larger than 4 inches apart.
NON SMOKING UNIT IN THE INSIDE, FEEL FREE TO SMOKE ON THE BALCONY AND OUTSIDE.
