This house was very nice and worked well for us. Beautiful views of the Pacific and the Channel Islands. Easy access to Santa Barbara and a comfortable spacious home. Perfect for families as there is room to spread out and the pool to enjoy. Staircases may be a bit of a challenge for kids under 4-5 but otherwise very kid and family friendly.

Perfect family reunion house

This house was an excellent place for 9 of us to be together for a week long family gathering. Very comfortable, amazing view, huge pool and the best equipped kitchen of any home I've rented.

What You Should Know

What We love

  • Playing in the pool with the kids all day long because that's all they want to do
  • Relaxing because you know the little ones are kept safely away from the gated pool.
  • Enjoying a romantic dinner on the balcony with views that stretch on for miles

What to know

  • The entry level is the upper level, where the living room, kitchen, dining room and two of the bedrooms are located. The lower level contains three of the bedrooms, each with patio doors leading out to the deck and pool area.
  • The neighbors are close enough that they will notice if you decide to skinny dip.
  • Like most homes in Santa Barbara, it doesn't have Air Conditioning and relies upon the open air breezes of Santa Barbara.

What to expect after booking

  • You'll receive a confirmation email shortly after booking.
  • If you've booked more than 60 days prior to your arrival date, we'll send you an email requesting your final payment as that date gets closer.
  • Once you're paid in full, we'll send you an email with the check-in information for your stay, including property access and who to call in case of a problem.

  • We encourage you to double check everything before you book to make sure you've selected that perfect home, at the ideal time. And while we're on the subject of peace of mind, ask us about our travel insurance package. It's just another amenity we offer to make booking your stay as relaxing as possible.
