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.

The space

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.

Guest access

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.

Great place to escape! The house was gorgeous and Peter was very friendly. Getting us everything we needed and giving us a tour of his place. A little noisy due to holiday weekend but people were respectful and the noise died off at a reasonable hour.

The place exceeded our expectations in every way possible. The Mountain Suite was clean, very comfortable and aesthetically beautiful!!! Our Host was friendly, witty, entertaining and very accommodating in every regard with excellent communication. He made sure our stay was "Memorable" spoiling us with French pressed coffee every morning for starters. He even offered to smoke a tri-tip for us but we declined due to our busy schedule. We will recommend this experience to one and all in the beautiful Santa Barbara Mountains overlooking Paradise!!!!

Beautiful place, lovely room, lovely pool. Peter was very accommodating and generous. Our family was very comfortable and happy, and we will stay here again. It is off the beaten path, but close enough to get to Santa Barbara in about 15 min.

Peter was a great host! He was very welcoming and helpful. He helped us with wifi and the stove. It is bit of a drive from state street, but it's nice to be away from the city. It is legitimately in the mountains so don't be scared about where you're driving. Thank you!!

This incredible spot, tucked away in the Chumash region of Santa Barbara, was gorgeous with spectacular views, swimming pool and hot tub all surrounded by the gracious sounds of nature. Peter we loved staying at your beautiful property for out quiet get away. Cant wait to come back. Thank you!

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!
