Amazing, totally-unobstructed views of the ocean and the beautiful Channel Islands! This is a romantic and gorgeous home--perfect for entertaining a few guests or just relaxing and forgetting all the stress of life! Beautiful, park-like 1.39 acres of vast lawns, fruit trees, trellis covered terrace overlooking the lush gardens and sea. Conveniently located on Cliff Drive one minute to the Arroyo Burro State beach, a 'local's favorite', this home is just five minutes to world-famous State Street and Santa Barbara Harbor, and 45 minutes to the wine country.
Completely private, this single level home offers a spacious living room with abundant picture windows, hardwood floors and fireplace, ocean view dining, gourmet kitchen, and three bedrooms, including a master with private bath. There are three full bathrooms in all. There is only one room that does not have a fabulous ocean view, but even that one has views over the lovely front garden with so many blooming rose bushes and colorful flowers. There is a detached two-car garage with lots of private parking. Open and airy, this inviting beach home is as refreshing as a gentle breeze on a lazy summer’s day.
Enjoy romantic sunsets alone or entertain friends on the lush 210-foot lawn overlooking the ocean. Putter in the gardens for hours or drift off into an afternoon nap on the hammock or the sun-drenched terrace. Create a fresh fruit salad from the orchard, which includes apple, apricot, plum, fig, nectarine, orange, lemon and lime trees (seasonal). Play croquet, bocci ball or just listen to the ocean. Dolphins, whales and pelicans are all included.
Truly, this is the Santa Barbara lifestyle at its best! Welcome to the American Riviera.

Better than I could have imagined
The pictures just do not do justice for how beautiful and perfect this view is. The front and inside of the house has a welcoming cottage feel that made me feel at home. The backyard just leaves me speechless. A luscious green lawn that sets the picture for the unobstructed ocean views. We're from San Diego so the ocean is nothing new, but we literally spent hours sitting in the backyard enjoying the view. We saw tons of dolphins and a whale on our last day. I highly recommend this home as a perfect vacation spot to get away.
The owner of this home is friendly and easy to work with as well. A wonderful experience overall and I'm already dreaming of coming back.
Well worth it.
Thanks for the wonderful review. My own sister was just staying at the property and she too saw a whale (actually two) on her last day. The whales must be clued in to our itineraries.
We rented this property for our family to stay in for a week as our son was getting married in Santa Barbara. We had a small rehearsal dinner there outside in the back yard. It was absolutely stunning. The view is unbelievable and we would find ourselves sitting out back at all times of the day to look at or listen to the ocean. You cannot tell how gorgeous the view is from these pictures!! The house had everything we needed and Sam and Paula were so great to check on us to make sure everything was in order. They were very wonderful to work with. We would definitely stay there again if we visit SB again. We made wonderful memories there and are so thankful that we happened on this house to make them in!
After a year of grueling treatment for breast cancer, my husband and I found this to be a place of joy and serenity for a week. My favorite memory is lying sitting under the gazebo, gazing at the expansive view of the Pacific Ocean with the Channel Islands in the distance, pelicans flying in formation, the soft breeze, and warm sun. The beautiful twisted trees can be seen from every window with the ocean view in the background. When it was time to go to bed, the bunnies and birds seem to appear on cue outside our bedroom window which I watched with delight. (We are from the east coast so it was light at bedtime.) The house quickly felt like home. It is exquisitely decorated for beauty, comfort, and convenience. It is about 15 minutes from the airport, there are trails and parks close by. Sam and Paula are warm, helpful, and easily accessible. We have already booked it two more times this year and cannot wait to return!
My husband and I recently stayed at this house for 11 nights. Every morning when I woke up I looked out the window and said, “this is unbelievable.” It felt like a dream. The owners are amazing, and the house has everything you could possibly need! We had a long list of things we wanted to do while on vacation in Santa Barbara. However, we chose not to do a lot of them because we did not want to leave the backyard! We shared pictures with friends and family of the house, backyard, and ocean views and they all said, “this looks like something out of a magazine!” This vacation was definitely the best vacation we have ever been on, and this property played a huge role in that. We can’t wait to go back!
Wall to wall views!
Loved the totally charming home in its amazing setting. What more could you ask for -- gorgeous wall to wall ocean views -- spectacular sunsets -- and a ten minute walk to the beach. The hosts thought of everything to make this cozy home the perfect vacation destination!
You won't want to leave!
We spent a relaxing 2 weeks at this wonderful house enjoying the views, sunsets and the Santa Barbara area. The house is very comfortable with everything that you need. The house is fully stocked and it was so enjoyable to sit in the back garden and enjoy sunset dinners. It was a great place to grab a book and simply relax.
The plums were ripe when we were there, they were delicious. The owners were very pleasant to deal with and very accommodating. We would certainly return to this property and I miss the amazing views and the dolphins swimming by!
