AS FEATURED ON FINE LIVING CHANNEL

Nestled in the foothills away from coastal fog this peaceful, mission style home is only minutes by car from the center of Santa Barbara.

This is a tranquil, private retreat with tropical landscaping, large swimming pool and panoramic views from mountains to ocean. Besides the pool, children can enjoy the swings or climbing in the tree-house. They will be safe from through traffic because the house sits on almost two acres at the end of a private road in a quiet, residential neighborhood.

Because of the setting it is not suitable for loud groups or raucous parties. Amplified music is not allowed.

The pool is heated entirely by the use of a solar blanket which increases and maintains the water temperature. Typical summer water temperature is in the mid 80's. Pool cover is required by City of Santa Barbara drought ordinance. The pool is not heated in winter.

Weekly rates $3,565 summer, $2,850 off season. Please ask for details.

A 12% hotel tax is collected directly by owner, in addition to rates above, and paid to the County of Santa Barbara.

Please note, July - August 2018 weekly bookings only, Saturday - Saturday.

2 night rental occasionally.
Holiday rates, $697 per night, $3,965 week.
Holidays include Memorial weekend, June graduation weekend, Labor Day weekend, Thanksgiving, Xmas, New Year.

Cleaning charges of between $75 - $150. Minimum charge of $75 for less than 5 nights, minimum of $100 for more than 5 nights.

Due to the residential neighborhood this property is not suitable for loud groups wishing to party. Amplified music is not allowed.

The house scenery is beautiful. Great place for photos. The swings at the top of the frontyard had a great view of the city. They also have a treehouse at the back but it has been closed off so you can't climb it. Overall, you're very close to nature, we even saw deers in the bac…

Response from Hilary:
The key to the front door is on the kitchen table inside the house manual folder. The guests were provided with this information before they arrived.. Nine rolls of toilet paper were provided for a two night stay. We could have supplied more had we been asked. Possibly this group was bigger than expected and permitted. The floor mop was inside the broom cupboard in the kitchen. Guests are requested to leave the home in a clean and tidy manner and not to mix trash and recycling to avoid additional charges. They are aware of this in the rental agreement they have signed.
