There is parking for 2 cars. Once you are here, you feel miles away, but are minutes to everything. The garage is not available for parking.
The lower part of the property is covered with 100 year old oak trees, paths that wind in the shade down a hillside, to a lower flat area. There are many trees overhead, making this area private and almost totally shaded most days. Its green in the winter and spring, and browns up in the summer and fall. A nice little get away right on the property.

We’ve stayed at this beautiful home before. I use the word home because it really is like staying at home. It is so friendly and well laid out that you instantly feel comfortable… at home. It’s hard to believe but they improved the house since our last visit. While the house is great the pool is amazing. Whether you want to silently float in the warm water while watching the sun set and the stars rise over the city of Santa Barbara or play all day in the water, this pool and spa are everything you need. The birds sing in the nearby trees while you gaze out over the infinity edge at the city, Mission, ocean and Chanel Islands. The privacy is amazing, you truly feel like you are all alone. The home has plenty of places inside and out to relax and enjoy the view. The rooms are all updated and modern with very nice finishes and high end appliances. One of the true advantages to renting this property is the people you get to work with. I’ve never had anyone so concerned that everything is perfectly ready for your stay. They are friendly and attentive and have thought of every last detail. You will not find a better place to stay in this area, and you will not find better people to deal with. Stay here once and you’ll want to stay again. We’ve stayed twice and we would love to stay here again. Trust me, this place is fantastic and you will absolutely love it.
A big Thank you to this wonderful family for staying agin. Glad the whole family could come this time. Hope to someday meet you, but in the meantime thank you for being so great to work with, and the review we will have a hard time living up to.
Best to all of you.
This home is a dream...we stayed a week and already wish we stayed longer. When you pull down the drive and see the view you will be amazed. You can see both the ocean and mountains...all from the infinity pool. Total relaxation and peace. We spent many moments drinking coffee and just taking in the view.
The home is beautifully kept and clean as was the pool. All the amenities you need for your stay. Terry was a pleasure to work with. Patiently answered all my questions and checked in with us to make sure we had everything we needed for our stay. The security deposit was a bit of a shock but as another reviewer wrote once you see the property it makes sense. You want to make sure this home stays beautiful! Terry was quick to process the return of the deposit so don't worry about any delays.
Santa Barbara was lovely--we look forward to returning and staying again in this home!
Thanks again to wonderful people. You make doing what we do easy. Not only were you patient with sending deposit during the worst snow storms ever in the east, but you did it twice. You left the property beautiful. Hope you can come again !! Thanks
Just Do It!
We are just wrapping up a week long yoga retreat with four friends that wanted a beautiful peaceful spot for yoga, wine and relaxation...when we stumbled across the owner Terry's house... we knew we had to book it...too often there are disappointments and the pictures oversell the actual property... Not here, Terry's house is everything, and more... A couple things that don't come out in the pictures are, the location is close to everything but sits high on top the mountain and at the end of the road.. A scary drive the first time, but the WOW of the view...worth it! The master suite is huge with a giant walk in closet, double sinks, and spectacular direct access to the pool. The layout of the house lives much bigger then the size. There are really 2 master suites. The kitchen is set up for conversing over dinner prep, morning coffee, or the dreaded work responsibilities..Terry is a host that makes the experience feel like your at a 5 star resort, offering suggestions for restaurants, shopping, and concerns over our comfort... The view in the pictures, 100% real!! don't think, just book it!
Thanks to all of you. Your were so great to work with, and this was a fun group. The weather was cool that week, and they were just as happy as if it were 80'.
Thanks for treating the place like your own, and once again, it nice to work with fun people with such a great outlook on life. Best to you all !!
Fabulous place to spend New Year's 2015
What a wonderful house to spend the week of New Year's 2015! The view from this house is spectacular. We made sure to be home every afternoon to watch the sunset from the pool. The house is nicely decorated and very clean. We enjoyed cooking in the beautiful kitchen and relaxing on the deck. The owner, Terry, and his staff are very responsive. I had a question about the TV remote and got a response immediately! I would highly recommend this house to friends or family wanting to visit Santa Barbara!
We are glad you had such a great Holiday. We are lucky it seems to always work with such nice people who like and care for the property. The place is not perfect by any means, but glad you see the great things that we do. Thanks you for such nice words, and hope you can come back.
Amazing and perfect holidays in Santa Barbara
We are Swiss and we spent 3 weeks holiday's in California. One week we spent in the nice Ocean Island view house in Santa Barbara. We all were excited about the house after we arrived. The location of the house is great. It's in quited road with a lot of privacy. The view over Santa Barbara and the ocean is fantastic. The house has a lot of charme, with furniture in modern and old style. The owner had a good taste for the decoration. The Kitchen is as well good equipped with all you can imagine. Another dream is the outside area, A nice deck with a quite big infinity pool and chairs to relax. The ambiance in the evening was really nice with turned on pool and tree light's. From the owner we got the permission to take the orange's from his garden. So every morning we collected orange's and we made freshly squeezed orange juice. Never had so nice orange juice in my life. So overall we all had a happy time in this nice house. Even the process to rent this house was a little strange to me, it worked everything fine and today I understand why the owner have so strict rules and terms.
Another great family. These fine folks were from the Zurich Switzerland, and were fun to work with by phone and email. I guess the legal drinking age is 16 in Switzerland, and 21 in California. Our contract [ due to ins ] says no alcohol can be served to minors. They had kids in their late teens I guess, and did not understand the contract. It was no big deal.
Glad you loved the Oranges and Grapefruits. You hit them perfect as far as ripeness.
Thank you for being so easy and fun to work with, and for treating the place so well. Hope to have you again.!!!
Great House, Great Owners/Managers!
This is the second time we've (my husband and I) rented this house (last time was 3 years ago), and we once again greatly enjoyed it!
The owners/managers are extremely hands on, and work hard to ensure an excellent rental experience from initial inquiry, to contracting, to the actual stay, to the post-stay wrap-up details.
They are quite particular about everything, which is great if you, as a renter, are also particular, which we are.
The house, including extensive grounds, and pool/spa area are all immaculately maintained and clean. The owners have good staff (e.g. housekeeper, pool staff, gardener) whom they've carefully developed strong relationships with that help greatly in this regard.
The kitchen is unusually well-equipped with respect to the kinds of things in the cupboards.
The view is stunning.
We had a fantastic time using this as our home base while visiting friends in Santa Barbara. Great house, great owner/managers, great city!
We will definitely try to rent this house again when we return to SB.
Thanks to the owners for your part in helping make our week in Santa Barbara fantastic!
Thanks again to wonderful couple who were so nice to work with. We hope you can visit again in the future. These folks were not only easy to work with, but were fun as well. They left the place according to our housekeeper almost as nice as they found it. Thank you again. Hope to have in the future for visit # 3.
This wonderful view home is located just 5 to 10 minutes from Trader Joes, Potterybarn, Vons, and lots of great Restaurants. Downtown and State St shops and Restaurants are close as well.
The Santa Barbara Harbor , Brophy Brothers, and the Marina are aprox. 15 minutes away as well.
Downtown Santa Barbara offers world class shopping, Dining, Theater, and almost anything you could ask for on Vacation or Buisness.
Within minutes of the property are some of the most amazing hiking trails to be found in California. 5,000 foot Mountain Peaks rise above Town, for some of the most dramatic views of the Pacific Ocean, Coastal Islands, from the Malibu Coast to Point Conception.
Summerland Beach is our favorite Beach walking spot. It is the best beach as far as Sand, and usually not crowded. The Town of Summerland has fun Antique shops.
Our Favorite place to eat and Have a Beer is Brophy Brothers at the Santa Barbara Marina. The boats, the Ocean, and the fishing boats, as well as the view of Santa Barbara and the Santa Ynez Mountains, are great from the Bar and outdoor Resturaunt.....
After a day out and around the Santa Barbara area, you will always love returning to the peace and quiet,and the private retreat like feel that this home and property offer.
Sunset in the spa overlooking the City below, as the Lights become more visable with dusk. is a memory of Santa Barbara at its best.....
Sunrise and sunset can be highlights of the day, as the sun rises over the Santa Barbara Harbor, and sets into the pacific, with the Santa Ynez Mountains in the distance as well. It always seems to be a good time to have the BBQ ready to go for dinner as well.
