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 Brand is an art director, graduate of Art Center College of Design who sometimes works from home and sometimes travels. She shares her home with her husband and kids who are mostly away at college.

Caroline Plasencia purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Caroline Plasencia chose Santa Barbara County

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!

Owner's Response: 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

Amazing ❤️

  • 5 of 5

After a hectic San Francisco visit followed by hiking in Yosemite it was an absolute bliss to experience the tranquil getaway this place is. Loved it! Kids loved the pool, feeding the goat, petting the dogs and catching lizards. We loved the view and the welcoming environment of the place and its owners. We will be back I'm sure! Thanks ❤️

Now THIS is a Vacation with a capital V

  • 5 of 5

There are only good words to describe this experience. Mike and Caroline have something bespoke - truly exclusive and special, perched up high in prime Santa Barbara terroir. They really know how to take care of guests in good taste while allowing luxe privacy. The amenities of this villa are top notch featuring a fabulous pool, high-grade utilities and furnishings, and unbeatable, peaceful views. Visitors must take advantage of the surrounding hiking trails, amazing people, and world-class food and wine options throughout Santa Barbara County and Santa Ynez Valley.

Relaxing, private, and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Caroline and Michael were respectful of our privacy , yet easy to reach if we needed anything. We were greeted with fresh flowers, cookies, coffee, and fresh picked peaches. Couldn't ask for more hospitable hosts! Thank you for a memorable weekend in Santa Barbara with a gorgeous, private setting- tastefully decorated! Your goat and dogs were a fun, addition to our stay.

The dogs are always happy to make new friends and Goatie loves all of her visitors here on our little farm in the hills. We hope you come back and visit us here in Santa Barbara! - Caroline and Mike

Hilltop view

Looks like the photos and it was a joy to experience this home. Great view looking down on Santa Barbara. So clean and sleek. A few footsteps from above but barely noticeable. Would definitely come back
