About Mindy Rosenblatt and Evelyn Jacob

We are artists, business owners, software developers and currency traders. We have each lived in Santa Barbara for over 35 years and have owned retail gift stores, restaurants and bakeries in that time.

We love this town and have carved out a very special area of it for you to call home during your visit. We have lived in many areas of Santa Barbara, Montecito and Carpinteria - yet find Mission Canyon, where we now live, to be one of the best places in the entire area. When other parts of the coast are foggy and cold, our little piece of paradise basks in warm sunlight.

We love being close to downtown, UCSB (The University of California Santa Barbara) and the Music Academy of the West in Montecito - so all the cultural wealth of the town is easily within reach.

Mindy Rosenblatt and Evelyn Jacob purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Mindy Rosenblatt and Evelyn Jacob chose Santa Barbara County

Mission Canyon is known as one of the best places in Santa Barbara because it's almost always sunny here, far enough from the beach to avoid the morning fog and close enough to the mountains for great hikes & day trips. It's also close enough to downtown that you can easily walk to all the great shops, theaters and restaurants Santa Barbara has to offer.

What makes this apartment unique

We think of our property as an evolving, living spiritual abode, and we are constantly 'feeding' it with our creative energy, as we bring more artistic inspiration into every aspect of it. We often have garden groups come for private tours - even the docents of the famous Lotusland in Montecito - and artists from around the country come to see what lies 'behind the magic gates'.

Don't stay anywhere else :)

  • 5 of 5

I genuinely can't imagine staying anywhere else in Santa Barbara. Equally, I genuinely can't imagine more welcoming, thoughtful hosts than Mindy and Evelyn:

*The apartment is clean, very well appointed, and extremely comfortable. It feels like your home, away from home (coffee machines x 2, fridge, Apple TV, wifi, super comfortable bed with multiple pillow options, ample space to hang clothes, beautiful skylights and ample natural light)

*The back garden is tranquil and the rear patio is the perfect spot for a glass of wine and quiet reflection

*Location is just minutes from everywhere (cafes, restaurants, the water etc). That said, its outside the centre of all the hustle so you can relax in the quiet. Easy if you have a car, equally easy to jump in an Uber

*Your hosts give lots of space and privacy but are always at the end of a phone, email or door knock if anything is needed

I can't say enough good things. I enjoyed my stay so much I'm trying to plan a sneaky work trip back to San Francisco so I can squeeze a mini vacation in Santa Barbara at Suite Peas :)

It is a beautiful property, filled with beauty, ambience, and life,

  • 5 of 5

We were totally hooked the minute we drove in the beautiful gate. Evelyn and Mindy greeted us warmly and took us on a tour of their impressive property. Their artistic talents and eye for detail are reflected inside and out. The result is a lovely retreat where you can relax and feel pampered. We honestly were sad to leave.

Beautiful, magical garden apartment complete with all the amenities and finishing touches

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Suite Peas garden apartment with Mindy and Evelyn. They are very gracious and kind hostesses. We were more than impressed with the apartment, The layout, the included amenities, and the quiet. There were several things that surpassed our expectations, we enjoyed the massage table every day we were there, the coffee bar was great, the bed is very comfortable. We also enjoyed the fireplace and the music with surroundsound. We could not have asked for anything more, everything was included in our stay. They even invited us to eat from there beautiful and delicious hydroponic garden, what a treat. Personally enjoyed sitting by the koi pond/waterfall. Every square inch of their place was well thought out, very Zen, artistic , whimsical. Would go back there again and again. Oh, and don't forget… The coffee pod art is not to be missed! :-)

Private, spacious, and cozy luxury apartment

  • 5 of 5

Stunning apartment and patio overlooks beautiful gardens, koi pond, and bird sanctuary on property in desirable Mission Canyon location. And it offers a peak at Inspiration Point! We enjoyed our stay immensely and found it difficult to leave this lovely retreat. Our hosts Mindy and Evelyn were gracious and treated us like good friends. They provided a detailed handbook and a guided tour of their wonderfully unique property. The apartment kitchen was fully stocked with coffee, cereals, breads, and slices of bundt cake from a local baker. We can't wait to stay here again soon.

Luxury accommodations, botanical gardens, and art gallery rolled into one

  • 5 of 5

Suite Peas was a wonderful, unique place to stay. The suite is spacious, comfortable and private. Mindy and Evelyn have thought of everything a visitor might from snacks, beverages, coffee, bathrooms amenities, and entertainment options. The extremely comfortable bed is better than beds in high-end hotels.

Mindy and Evelyn add to the charm. They have created a yard that is both botanical garden and art gallery filled with joyful, fun objects they have created together. We look forward to our next visit.
