This private guest house is located in a beautiful mountain side estate, only 20 minutes from downtown. The guest house is the bottom level of the main estate. It is completely closed off with it's own separate entrance.
It includes a private living/dining area with a kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom. There is also a terrace overlooking the mountains and city all the way to the coastline.
This unit has a living room with dining area and kitchen. There is a comfortable queen size sleeper sofa for additional guests (fee required) and dining table for four. There's a four burner stove, oven, refrigerator, and microwave. The living room has a 55" TV with DVD player along with a small library of DVDs to choose from (no cable). The separate bedroom has a queen size bed and comfortably sleeps two. The updated bathroom includes a walk-in shower. Both the living and bedroom areas are flooded with natural light and have views of the ocean in the distance. There is plenty of parking and if renting additional rooms upstairs (see additional listings), access to the rest of the house is provided via spiral staircase. This access can be locked off as well for complete privacy from the main home.
Upon request, the swimming pool and hot tub offer beautiful city views. The home also includes access to a variety of activities such as ping pong, bumper pool, and darts. There is Asteroids as well as Super Mario Bros. available in their original arcade housing. We also have two BBQ grills, one at the pool and on a the balcony. There is a basketball hoop as well as a punching bag, in addendum to a treadmill and other various workout equipment.
The home gives you beautiful elevated views of the stunning California coastline and Santa Ynez Mountains. The estate offers a unique location being close to both, Santa Barbara as well as Santa Ynez, while also giving you the feel of being many miles away at the same time.
The estate is located within close proximity to the Chumash Painted Cave State Historic Park. There you will be able to view the beautiful cave, which is filled with ancient paintings drawn by the Chumash Indians. There are also many hiking trails nearby. Santa Barbara and Santa Ynez has many amazing restaurants, wineries, beaches and many, if not all, of the wonderful outdoor activities California has to offer in arm's reach.
Access to the pool and hot tub is available upon request. Beach chairs and boogie boards are available upon request, first come first served.
Interaction with guests
If you are around and social, Peter is always happy to visit! He also understands that people like their privacy and retreat time. He's very easy going as well as a lovely host, great chef and a unique personality.
Other things to note
The 154 and Painted Cave Road are very curvy mountain roads with beautiful scenic views. Painted Cave Road is not a road for fast travel, it's recommended to drive up during the day for your initial trek up here.

Hello welcome to Peter's house! He's an outgoing, energetic, friendly guy, whose also a great cook. With little persuasion, you might get him to rustle up a great breakfast or terrific BBQ. He's also not a bad bartender. (You'll to discuss $$ for food and drink separately). He's a bit of a neat freak so the house is always clean and tidy. Come check it out! You won't want to leave!
