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.

Each's entry are very apart from each other. The above property is available too, and sometimes the owner occupies the above unit, or a separate apt on the property when not traveling. 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.

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'.

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.

I am an artist and a You Tube producer of travel, cooking and have a TV show about Santa Barbara lifestyle. I've lived in SB for 15 years, and was born in Calif. I travel often and have been many places. I enjoy hosting guests. I have caretakers and wonderful cleaning help so the unit is always super clean.
I love to garden, and have a special butterfly garden to save the Monarchs at the property.
