Take a deep breath and cherish the moment when you first arrive at this gorgeous 4-bedroom, 4-bathroom hillside home. The true definition of panoramic views, choose your spot to relax and take in breathtaking sights of the sparkling blue ocean, the quaint area islands or the rolling mountains that surround you at every turn. Looking to become at one with your surroundings? Enjoy the calming effect of your very own infinity pool and spa as you unwind in luxurious seclusion.

Thirty days may not be long enough once you and your family discover how close you are to all the area’s activities…and just how far from ordinary this residence truly is. From hiking and shopping to golfing and beachcombing (beach chairs provided) and more, the leisure activities are certainly at a premium and surprisingly just minutes away.

But with an address like this one, you may be content just kicking back the property. Decorated in rich golds and russets with Brazilian cherry floors and fine Oriental rugs, the home is reminiscent of those in the Tuscan countryside. The living and dining rooms feature arched windows and French doors leading to the terrace. And the kitchen is a gourmet's dream with authentic wood cabinetry, granite countertops and top-of-the-line appliances to make your family delicious meals for the whole clan to enjoy in the family room with a gas fireplace, large-screen TV, a cozy eating area and French doors to the terrace.



Up an open curved staircase, the spacious master suite features a terrace with a private ocean view. You’ll also enjoy a marble bath with soaking tub, an over-sized glass-enclosed shower and double vanity for maximum convenience. Three other spacious main-floor bedrooms each have en-suite baths. Two are furnished with hand-painted European king beds and antique chests or armoires. The third has an antique iron queen bed plus a trundle daybed that sleeps an additional two persons.

And finally, what destination would be complete without colorful gardens where you can pick your very own avocados and limes, and then retreat to the tree-shaded deck to recap the day’s events. At this Montecito destination, you have found your one-of-kind home.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about your home. It is so incredibly beautiful! We loved every minute of our stay. The house is gorgeous. Every room is so lovely and a beautiful surprise! I loved every one. I delighted in just being there. A very serene environment. I could have gotten lost in reading the beautiful books on all the tables and gazing out the windows at the magnificent view! We both love to cook and thoroughly enjoyed your meticulously organized kitchen with everything and a fabulous stove. I went to the French Culinary Institute, and feel inspired to cook in a great kitchen like yours. I was delighted by how wonderfully organized everything was. I am a total neat freak so this always gives a feeling of immense calm and joy. The property is absolutely magnificent. My husband and I both love to garden so we were intrigued with the beautifully executed landscaping which has been so lovingly maintained. Your gardener came one morning and was so quiet that we would not have known he was there had we not seen him glancing out the window while having our morning coffee. He made every attempt to be respectfully out of view. Everything bit our your property is meticulously groomed without a leaf out of place. I was in awe. I loved all the little paths and rose gardens on the side of the house that one might miss if not looking. The trees and plantings are incredible. The birds of paradise were brilliant in bloom. I adore the vine on the wall at your wonderful front door. I did not remember how absolutely stunning Montecito was. It was always very quiet and understated. Your neighborhood is spectacular. I would never want to leave!

Tremendous Time

We had a tremendous time and followed lots of your recommendations. The kids loved the seal lion sanctuary particularly. You house was lovely and we missed looking out to the islands in the evening the first day we got back.

Outstanding Home

We spent a month at this house. It was a first class house in a first class neighborhood. The rooms were spacious and well appointed. The amentities more than met our need. The back patio was superb, with a spectacular view, great landscaping, a gorgeous pool that was reasonably big, and several seating options including a full size table and chairs to eat at. We found many great restaurants and a few good golf courses in the area. The only shortcoming was that you can't heat both the pool and the hot tub at the same time, and the pool takes 20 to 24 hours to heat up. We eventually decided to just heat the hot tub, and swim in the cooler pool which was generally about 68.

Christmas in Montecito

The Holidays worked well for us and the family loves being there. We would like to lease Mariposa again next year for the holidays, and leave the door open for a longer term.

We have loved the area so much and have adored our time in your beautiful home. We're heading out tomorrow. My boys want to get back from spring break and have a few hours to recover! Recover from what I'm not sure as their stay in El Capitan and Santa Barbara has been pretty darn mellow. We would love to come back sometime. It's been a fantastic week and my 9th grader is ready to go to UCSB. We have really enjoyed our stay. Thank you!

Santa Barbara Beaches The Ultimate Guide
To say there is no shortage of beaches along Santa Barbara County’s coast, just might be the biggest understatement we’ve ever made. No matter what neighborhood you stay in, chances are, you’ll be just minutes from beautiful sandy ...shores that Santa Barbara is so well-known for. But just because you’re vacationing close to one of Santa Barbara beaches, doesn’t mean it’s necessarily the right beach for you or your family. Below, we explore some of our personal favorite locations, along with what are the best Santa Barbara beaches for kids, for dogs, for privacy, and for unlimited activities. Take a little tour with us, won’t you? (see less)

Whale Watching Santa Barbara
If you always wanted to go on a whale-watching tour, there’s no better place to do it than Santa Barbara. Santa Barbara whale-watching season is pretty much anytime of year. But there is one caveat. You must decide what species of whale you ...want to see most. Not all migrations take place at the same time. So if you’ll forgive the pun, let’s dive a little deeper. (see less)

The Restaurant Guy's Santa Barbara Recommendations
November 11, 2016 The A-team at Good Bar has put their best fall foot forward, offering half a dozen sippers for everyone. Sweet Corn is the winning ingredient in PILGRIMAGE SOUTH, a blend of Herradura Reposado, sweet corn, creme de cacao, fresh lime, chocolate ...bitters and egg white. The result is a colorful and velvety rich drink worth coming in for. The funky and fresh EJECTION SEAT consists of High West double rye, Damoiseau 110 Rhum, Amaro Lucano, green tea pineapple gomme, fresh lime, cinnamon syrup, and tiki bitters, while the GUN FOR HIRE awakens your palate with black cardamom infused Bombay Sapphire, Creme de Noyeaux, cardamaro aromatized wine, sasparilla and angostura bitters.
