Located in a very quiet, private residential neighborhood at the end of a cul de sac, yet only minutes to downtown and all beaches. We have a wonderful relaxing 1/2 acre backyard, overlooking Santa Barbara and the mountains! The perfect private getaway with absolute great views! House is totally updated!

The space

Long Term cancellation policy applies to our listing!!
This is our private home, and we only rent it out a couple of times per year, when we are on our own vacation, or when staying for an extended period of time in the Bay area, to be closer to our son and family. Everything that you could possibly need or want will be available, since it is our private residence, rather than only a vacation rental.
We have a master bedroom with a California King size bed, a walk-in closet and a flat screen TV. There is an en-suite bathroom with a walk-in shower and two sinks. From this bedroom you can get to the backyard and patio through a large sliding glass door.
Our second bedroom, being used as a guest bedroom/office, has a Queen size bed, a closet, a computer desk as well as two chairs. Next to this room is the second bathroom, also with a walk-in shower. Both bathrooms have no bathtubs, only large showers.
The bright and spacious living room has a 42" HD TV, 2 leather couches and 2 separate reclining chairs in the fireplace area. There are very large sliding glass doors to access the backyard and patio area, making this room real bright and open.
The good sized kitchen has all brand-new stainless steel appliances, plenty of granite counter space, tile floors, and a separate dining room with beautiful views opening to a patio area with a barbeque. Everything you might need to cook with is in our full equipped kitchen (however the Espresso machine and coffee grinder as shown in the pictures will not be available).
The backyard is super private, has beautiful custom pavers, a great large shade tree, turf grass and two sitting areas, as well as a small barbeque off the dining area. There is also a fruit and vegetable orchard in the back (help yourself), with additional chairs and seating areas.
The unobstructed views overlook the city of Santa Barbara and the Santa Ynez mountains. We have a very private, completely fenced in backyard and outdoor area to relax in; great for viewing our beautiful sunsets with a glass of wine! Vacation at its best!!

Guest access

The entire house and yard will be yours. Since this is our own home, you have to accept that some of our own personal items are in the house; however, some of the decorative items show on the pictures will not be left in the house when rented.
We will make all closets and bathroom vanities available, so that you will have plenty of your own personal space to make this a perfect vacation or stay.
The third bedroom is currently being used as an office, has no bed, and will be locked during your stay, since we will store our personal belongings in this room, so that you have plenty of space for your own things.

You will have access to our washer and dryer in the garage, as well as space to park one car. Additionally, there is parking for 2 or 3 cars in our driveway, and there is also plenty of off-street parking, which is always available.

Interaction with guests

We will be available by cell phone, text or via email, and will try to get back to you as soon as feasible. We will also make additional contact names and cell phones available in case of an emergency.
If you would feel more comfortable, we could meet with you at the day of your arrival, provided we have not already left for our own vacation.

Other things to note

If your heating bill during our winter months exceeds our normal average, or in the summer due to excessive use of the AC, we will ask you to pay for the difference.

Monika and her husband are amazing hosts! Excellent communication, clear directions, they are very accommodating and helpful, and very nice people. They made some great suggestions for things to do in SB, restaurants etc. Their house was exactly as described, very comfortable, spacious and welcoming; its in an excellent location a short drive away from everything but yet in a quiet neighborhood. It is very clean, comfortable and with breathtaking views! We had a wonderful stay and would return in a heartbeat. Thank you for everything!
