This family house is spacious and set in a beautiful garden. The pool was ideal for the adults while the heated spa suit d our grandson. Nice large table for eating outside and plenty to do in the area. It is an easy distance from downtown but quiet and peaceful in the garden which smells of orange blossom and roses.

Management response:

Tricia, You were a delight to host! It is such a beautiful spring in Santa Barbara. So glad you enjoyed all the wonders of the garden. Please visit us again.

About the neighbourhood
Santa Barbara known as the 'American Riviera' is known for its beauty, architecture and the incredible flora of the area. Something is always blooming and the mountains and ocean provide a rich diversity of natural environments to explore. You can swim at the beach and hike in the mountains in the same day!!! This property is close to it all and yet with the benefit of having it's own outdoor area to enjoy the beautiful weather in privacy.

Go whale watching, take in the wine country nearby, kayak the ocean. Ride the many bike trails, hike the many mountain hiking trails, or just relax at the beach. There is something for everyone. Santa Barbara has it's own Art Museum, and the Botanic Garden, Natural History Museum are within walking distance of this property. There is...
