The space


Located in the hills above of Santa Barbara between the city and the sea, this authentic adobe was built in the mid-1950s by master Adobero, Senor Aguilar. With panoramic views of the city and mountains and a peek of the harbor, this welcoming home will provide you with the quintessential Santa Barbara vacation! You enter the property through old Mesquite Gates and descend to the private courtyard, complete with fountain, citrus trees, and barbecue. This is a perfect spot for morning coffee, afternoon naps or a casual dinner. The main house has two bedrooms, each with a queen bed and private bath. The kitchen is beautifully appointed with a Viking range and professional appliances for any discriminating cook. On the view side of the property, you will find a terrace and "sit in" stone fire pit with stunning vistas of the city and mountains. The property also has a guest cottage that can accommodate two more persons. It contains an extra long twin trundle, private bath, and secluded terrace with mountain and city views. (Please note that the guest cottage is only available upon request. Additional rates may apply.) The home is less than a 7 min drive to the beach or downtown and has three flat screen TV's with satellite HD TV service, internet access, central heat and off street parking.
Long term stays and special rates are available. All guests must agree to a 31-day lease term. Please contact owner for details.

Everything about Mark's place is spectacular. I was fortunate enough to spend 4 nights here with my wife in December before the holiday and we could not have been more impressed with the location, views, and amenities. The Hilltop Adobe is a short drive down the hill to State Street in one direction and the beach in the other. Mark provided a very detailed list of instructions on how to operate things throughout the house - lights, audio system, fireplaces, etc. Mark's forward thinking and attention to detail on this place is nothing shy of exceptional. One helpful tip is to remember that if you're planning on cooking meals think ahead on what you may need. Mark has a fully equipped kitchen with any appliance, cutlery, and utensil you can think of but in terms of condiments and ingredients you're at the mercy of what's left by previous renters. Maybe plan on taking stock after check-in and heading to the nearby Lazy Acres. I bought a big bottle Lazy Acres olive oil and left it as my way of paying it forward. I would 100% stay here at a moments notice any time in the future. In fact it would be very hard to remove Mark's Hilltop Adobe as my top choice in SB.

House is cozy and well appointed. Kitchen nicely stocked with spices and most everything you would need as far as appliances, etc. If you are planning on entertaining, there is no kitchen table, but the bar stools work just fine for informal eating. Fireplace is great (gas). It was chilly while we were there, so only ate breakfast outside one morning, but in warmer temps, there are a couple different places to relax outside. Located close to Santa Barbara city center and the mesa. Once you get the directions down, it is no problem. Beautiful views of the hills and city.

Marks house is lovely, quiet, with truly spectacular vistas of the city below. We enjoyed every minute here. And we were greeted with a generous gift basket (yummy lemon cookies Mark) as well as a serene four days.
