The SpacePURE MAGICAL LAND & WELL LOVED HOME off private drive. Extremely serene, quiet setting with peaceful gorgeous energy, green growing things and fine air. This stunning 11 acre property graced with oak, pepper, sycamore and walnut trees is surrounded by horse trails, more land and national forest. Santa Barbara is stunning ALL year round! The incredible thing about this place is that it's a mere 2 miles to shopping malls, Whole Foods and restaurants (5 minutes) and 10 minutes to just about anywhere downtown Santa Barbara. We're also 30 minutes from the wine country... Santa Ynez, Los Olivos and Solvang. The land is unique because it feels like you're very remote and off the grid out in nature (which you are) but then it's just minutes to get anywhere in Santa Barbara. Very find rare to find such a spot with so much surrounding private serene land!
Bringing people to my home is a total love and passion of mine.. this isn't just some financial exchange.. but something that comes from my heart and it's a great honor to be blessed with this amazing piece of Earth and get to share it with people. I take great pride in my home and making the experience incredible for those who visit! To play a small role in creating the setting for peoples life memories.. eloping or having their first romantic get away after having children etc.makes my heart glad! I think because I truly LOVE, love opening my home and land up to others, it makes for a very different kind of experience energetically. It's been a real honor for me to be hostess!
PLEASE NOTE: If you are interested in staying, I always like to connect by phone for a brief hello, answer questions and make sure it's all feeling in alignment. I want people getting just what they need, wherever that may be. In order to do this PLEASE BE SURE TO SELECT 'VOICE CONNECT' when you make your inquiry for a reservation so I can call you directly.
Now, back to why this place is UTTER PARADISE!...
The house has it's own private gated entrance and parking.. it's a beautiful, very open, light 1 bedroom, 1 bath space with a modern living room/kitchen, mountain views and a wood back deck with a wonderful claw footed bath tub under a sweet pepper tree. Modern, bright, soulful and homey with skylights, Bose surround system for phone input or CDs, a full sized projector/ full screen movie theatre in the bedroom, glass french doors and numerous windows (very open and light) looking out to the Santa Barbara mountain range, beautiful hillsides and open nature... all STUNNINGLY GORGEOUS!
The open door ways expand out to the land which becomes an extension of the living space. The birds that land on the outside fountain are amazing.. birds of every kind.. sparrows, humming birds, blue scrub jays.. there's the sound of hawks, crows, laying chickens (fresh eggs for you!) and horses. The sun is supreme here, the air quality medicinal and the weather has a habit of being a perfectly kind 73 degrees and sunny. Hang out by day or by moon with the countless places to dwell.
There is a true home feeling here... clean, soulful and modern with gorgeous wood floors, a two headed hand tiled shower, organic California king mattress, claw foot bath tub off the back deck outside, a chef's kitchen and other good things you'd want in a dwelling, not to mention an UPRIGHT ACOUSTIC PIANO in the bedroom!
We also happen to have on the top tier of the property a beautiful POOL (minimally fenced in/ NOT childproof!) and an awesome HOT TUB surrounded by a canopy of gorgeous oak trees. Incredible under the stars!! For kids (of all ages), there is a great playground on the property, a little playhouse outside the main house and a large trampoline looking out to an open forest of trees.
Wireless internet yes... for your laptop. And cell phones usually work great.. internet etc....though you might need to find the sweet spots ... a good break for the nervous system! The setting is ideal for two adults + up to 1 maybe 2 little ones which I can provide pads for if needed. ($40 extra per child per night to support setting them up properly!) I also consider pets, so feel free to inquire on that!
Again, I so love having people here.. part of the unfolding story of this special dwelling and have appreciated how everyone has treated this place with honor, respect.. all of us taking good care with it so it's here for everyone's enjoyment. Makes me glad!!!
I am present on the land in my 'own neck of the woods' (so I'm around if needed by text) or it may be that you have the 11 acres to yourself or with 2 other guests who reside on the other corner of the property (they enter from another gated entrance).. not likely you'll cross paths with them except at the common spaces like the pool/ hot tub. Remember 11 acres is A LOT of land! If you are interested in sharing the property with your people, they could rent the yurt (also a stunning space.. very different from the house/ you can find it's description under "STUNNING EXCLUSIVE YURT ON 11 ACRES" or (go to my profile for my listings). I always do my best to welcome people in person briefly, a soulful hello and fill you in on a couple things so your stay goes smooth.
As beautiful as the images show.. there are aspects of being here.. the beauty that can't be captured in photos.. the stillness, the very open, natural setting but with a feeling of complete safety. It's a very special zone in which to unravel the nervous system, revise and renew. The reviews will give you a deeper sense of peoples amazing experiences here. Hope to share in it with you!
