Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath Suite, Sleeps 4 - 5

Located in the hills above the city, you are only 1.2 miles from State Street, (the main artery for shopping and restaurants) and four miles to the beach, pier and art walk. The closest stores and restaurants are less than 1.5 miles away, though you may feel nicely removed from the city in this hilltop suite surrounded by spectacular views of the ocean, islands, mountains, oak trees, plenty of nature and by night - a span of glittering city lights visible through nearly wall-to-wall french doors that lead to a private stone-paved patio. Enjoy the morning views of rolling hills, orchards and mountains that look like the Tuscan countryside.

Charming pathways lead you a large, solar-heated pool, spa and 'petting zoo' of one very friendly goat. The zoo is located at the farthest end of the fully-gated two-acre property.

This one bedroom suite plus curtained alcove with daybed has been newly remodeled and designed to be light, refreshing, airy, stylish and comfortable. Romantic for a couple and cozy for a small family – it sleeps up to five. Feel your spirits lift the moment you walk in the door.

About Caroline Plasencia

Caroline Plasencia purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Caroline Plasencia chose Santa Barbara

We instantly fell in love with this property because of the beautiful views and grounds –two acres of nature. We always call it our bit of heaven. We named our suite the 'Tuscan Vista' because of the rolling hills and the orchards that lead up to the mountains. You will feel you are in a rural setting but everything is just a few minutes away.

What makes this apartment unique

Glorious views everywhere, peaceful setting, newly remodeled suite with brand new appliances and furniture. Bird-watching and stargazing. Kids and adults will love the pool (nice and warm), hot tub and plenty of yard (fully gated) in which to play, visit the goat, swim and be creative. Outdoor seating and lounging provided. The suite is all one level from off-street parking to your suite - only one step. There is a bathtub/shower combination. A very clean suite with comfortable mattresses and linens. There is a daybed (twin) alcove that can be made private by closing the curtains and a sleeper sofa full/queen in living room. It is bliss.

Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

This home feels like heaven on earth, it is so beautiful! Everything about our stay was absolutely perfect. The home itself is roomy and clean and had everything we could need or want. My kids and I adored the goat and the dogs and Mike and Caroline are the sweetest people you'll ever meet. Their property is absolutely stunning with its tree swings and orchards and incredible views. I can't say enough good things about it, we loved every minute there and can't wait to go back!

All good things, Caroline and Mike

The perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This property was simply amazing. Extremely clean and cozy when we arrived with little treats waiting for us on the kitchen table. Mike and Caroline are very easy-going and kind people. If you have any questions or need help with anything they are easily reached. You can walk the secluded property and say hi to their family goat! Relaxing in the pool and hot tub was perfect. At night, you can relax and watch the sun go down over the city, or watch the stars appear over the awesome mountain views! I highly recommend this property to anyone staying in Santa Barbara!

Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every minute of our time in Santa Barbara! The suite was so clean and comfortable. We loved sitting on the patio with our coffee each morning and our kids couldn’t get enough of the pool. Wish our stay could have been longer!

First Class

  • 5 of 5

Many thanks to Caroline and Mike for making my daughters, wife and myself extremely welcome during our stay. The property was impeccably clean and tidy and the pool was just perfect. My daughters had a fantastic time playing with Mike and Caroline's two dogs and they loved walking down to see the resident goat whose name escapes me. All in all, faultless and we plan to return again next year.

Delightful Family Get Away

  • 5 of 5

We really loved our stay at Caroline's place. It's well appointed, and has everything you need to have an amazing stay in Santa Barbara. The unit is even more beautiful in person than the photos; from the pretty balcony with it's sweeping views, the gorgeous white interior, and the very well thought out bathroom, to the super comfy beds, we were impressed. Our 6 year old loved the pool, and loved meeting Goatie. I loved that there was a cute sleeping nook for him, and a dresser for his clothes.

We also appreciated the small gracious touches that Caroline thought of - small things in the fridge as a welcome, a few little necessities like Q-tips and great smelling soap in the bathroom - we really felt welcomed and pampered, and very well taken care of.

I highly recommend this beautiful unit for your vacation. We'd love to go back. Thank you to Caroline and Mike for the amazing hospitality.
