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.

Why Caroline Plasencia chose Mission Canyon
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.

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!
This is one of the sweetest reviews - thank you. We love that we can offer a clean, safe and beautiful retreat for our guests. We love all of our children and knowing that they can freely explore and enjoy nature is the ultimate reward for doing VRBO.
We would love to have you and your precious family anytime.
All good things,
Caroline and Mike
The apartment was very comfortable and the owners could not have been nicer.
Lovely and peaceful. Very private. Have to admit I was hesitant to stay at a guest suite was we usually rent a house but this could not have been more perfect. The owners were available but not intrusive. Loved the goats and their dogs. Cannot say enough good about this home away from home.
The views from the guest suite are breathtaking and the accommodations were very comfortable and spacious for my family of 4 for 5 nights. The location is a very short drive to downtown, yet far enough away to feel a sense of calm in such a peaceful setting. Our 2 school aged children enjoyed the pool, tree swings, and greeting the goats and dogs. Caroline and Mike were incredibly kind and wonderful hosts. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to return.
Thanks, Jessica! We enjoyed meeting you and your charming family. Mike and I are glad you enjoyed yourselves. We love to see families enjoying the premises and the sounds of children laughing - it's absolute joy for us!
We hope you'll be back and thanks again for your kind review.
A perfect place for a relaxing vacation.
A wonderful, peaceful place, yet handy to all the major sites. Well appointed and equipped, with a wonderful view. Owners are a lovely couple. Highly recommend this place for your visit to Santa Barbara.
Thanks Kay! We enjoyed having you here and we'll see you next year!
Looking forward to your next stay!
Caroline and Mike
Location, location, location (and a goat)
This place is incredible. We went with our kids and, while we didn't take advantage of the pool and hot tub, the kids enjoyed hanging out with a sweet goat and swinging from a beautiful old tree.
Not only is the view spectacular, everything you might want to do is conveniently located. The owners are also lovely, super nice people who welcomed us warmly and responded quickly to questions that we had. We'll return for sure.
Yes, come back because we have two new baby goats and they are as charming as Francie!
Thank you for your review and look forward to your next visit!
Caroline and Mike
The place is clean and that modern look with welcoming appeal is spot on. Gorgeous sorrounding too!
The whole experience summoned all those artistic inspirations flowing. Goatie was an excellent model for my husband’s sketches and I thoroughly enjoyed the swing and the early morning stroll about the property. Those Santa Barbara sunsets were spectacular!
Mission Canyon has a rural setting only minutes from downtown and the beach. On one side you have the majestic mountain range; on the other you have the ocean, island and city views. It has everything.
