The SpaceThis property is an amazing nature retreat. It is located near the beach, yet is adjacent to 27 acres of wilderness with hawks, amazing birdlife, wildlife, trees of all kinds, and foliage to make you feel like you are away in a private park. You look onto a lawn of about 1 acre with tree swings, hammock, zip line, tether ball, all at your beckoning. You have a private entry, down a stairway for your treehouse stay amongst an oak grove on your left and the expanse of the yard to your right and before your feet. There is a historic rose garden of 33 specimen roses saved from extinction, cut them for your stay. Some, never to be bred again. Oranges, lemons, avocados, apricots, plums, and more are planted around the expansive yard. Hummingbirds and butterflies abound.
Beautiful 2 Bedrooms and 1 Bath (Sleeps 4-6) The Master bedroom has a king bed, the other bedroom is on the opposite side of the property with a Queen bed.
For parties of more than 4, there is a rollaway bed, and a fold open futon in the closet in the master bedroom for 2 more sleeping spaces (or the big couch). Lots of extra linens.
The living room is in between both bedrooms. HD TV's in each bedroom and in the living room, Free Internet, DVD players in each bedroom and in the living room.
There is a spacious deck with a BBQ and Table for outside dining adjoining the oak grove and over looking the rose garden and magnificent lawn. Nature in all it's glory.
The property is the downstairs floor that is completely separate from the upstairs floor. There are two units on the property. This unit is the lower unit by the oak grove. Each are separate units. Each's entry are very apart from each other. The above property is available too, and sometimes the owner occupies the above unit. Each unit has a gated deck for pets to be contained so doggies can go in and out, and have a gate to keep them from wandering into trouble. The yard is mainly fenced, but not 100% for escape artist puppies! The yard is in a bowl which keeps it far away from the street for kids or pups.
The kitchen has a full refrigerator, gas range/stove, dishwasher, fully equipped for you to cook, blender, coffee pot, dishes, cooking equipment are all there. Lots of spices and dry goods.
Terrific comfort, very clean, in a rural upscale neighborhood, between Hope Ranch and the Mesa, very close to the beach at a great value.
The neighborhood is very low density houses.
This unit is very children and pet friendly, original impressionist oil painting collection. Toys, games and books are there for kids of all ages. No neighbors can see into unit, quiet, peaceful. Birds and wildlife viewable from every window.
Enjoy playing in the expansive yard! Great for croquette, and other sports, equipment provided for you, your children and pets - it feels like a park, yet so private -- the property is unique in it's very large size and setting. It overlooks 27 undeveloped acres of wildlife, trees, and just beyond the beautiful hillside view is the beach.
Behind fog line, so SUNNY! If you have ever been to Santa Barbara, you know it can be foggy, but this property is just beyond the fog line, so we get less coastal morning fog!
Very quiet area, and very quiet unit. There is another unit above this unit on the property. The property is built in a way that each unit, this one your inquiring about is the lower unit, and the upper unit, are completely private with separate entry ways, and built into a hill, so they are quite well insulated for sound.
A caretaker is available to help if needed.
It is a 2 minute drive, 10-15 minute walk, to a scenic surfing beach that has on one end a dog beach, and one of California's most scenic oceanfront restaurants 'The Boathouse'. It is 5 minutes to downtown by car, the harbor, pier, etc., and 5 minutes by car to Montecito, 10 minutes to the Santa Barbara Airport.
King & Queen beds, with 2 futons with bedding for 6 sleeping total. The bedrooms are on opposite ends, with the living room in between the bedrooms. The bath has a shower/tub combination. Relaxing is easy with all the serenity around you and in the unit itself.
For stays of one week or more, there is a cleaning helper that will come one day to clean your unit and do wash and fold laundry for free. It really makes your stay a vacation...!
DOG RUN: Newly installed chain link secured dog run so you can let your doggie (s) rest comfortably while you sight see. Shaded area, big enough for multiple dogs.
This is a very special unique property which makes your vacation stay here special - very very few properties in Santa Barbara have this type of amazing yard, (URL HIDDEN) really like a private park, it's a wow.
