Property Description

Breathtaking views of ocean, islands, mountains and city from this magical three-story redwood home at the end of a cul-de-sac on 1.38 acres! Walls of glass & 4 decks let you enjoy the spectacular views from sunrise to sunset. Offering privacy in a tranquil mountain setting both dramatic and romantic, this 2,400 sq ft. Home is filled with light. Soaring 25’ wood ceilings, an open floor plan, faux walls by vVvencio, wooden floors, hand-painted tiles and a balinese fireplace mantel are a few extras that make this home unique. This is the home of an artist and writer and is elegantly furnished with art from around the world. Here is an opportunity to stay on top of the world, only 20 minutes from state street, 25 minutes to the beach and 30 minutes to the famed santa ynez wine country. Quail, wild pigeons, soaring hawks and hummingbirds make this home a bird watcher’s paradise. Surrounding roads are a mecca for hiking and bicycling. This area was sacred to the Chumash indians. The California state monument, the Chumash cave known as 'painted cave' famous for its petroglyphs, was once owned by my husband's family and is a short walk away. Fishing, boating and nature cruises are available at Cachuma Lake, 20 minutes to the east. Santa Ynez is wine tasting country and only 30 minutes away. Nearby historic cold springs tavern offers excellent cuisine and Sunday afternoon concerts. Note: the top level of the home, a loft open to the floors below, has a double futon and can function as a third bedroom. The second bedroom has a queen size bed and the master bedroom has two twin beds. The homeowners live in a separate apartment with a private entrance on the property--Homestay housing. You won’t know they are there unless you need them. We will be available always by phone or email and generally in person; however, we respect the privacy of guests and will be invisible unless otherwise desired. I am happy to extend check-in and check-out times if there are no other guests booked for the dates you request. We have a satellite internet connection; consequently we are unable to download or upload videos but all regular use of the internet is fine. We have a video library for your use. *if you want to bring a pet, please ask first. Thank you.

Beautiful views

We rented this house for our weekend stay in Santa Barbara. It is very spacious and offers great views of the city.

Beautiful, Amazing and rejuvenating place

We stayed here for two nights and we felt like we are staying in clouds. Amazing experiences of sunrise, sunset, valley, mountains and ocean views. It was an unique experience to see multiple views from the same place. The house is beautiful architecturally. The photos do not do justice of this property. If you are looking for mountain retreat, thi... Read More

View of the Gods!

Though just a brief, getaway 2 night stay in our own community, we were enchanted w/our booking in the mountains overlooking the Santa Barbara Coast. The house located in the Painted Cave Community, which actually has some ancient cave paintings nearby, welcomed us with an ambiance that both embraced us with its' ethnic & eclectic art & fur...

Cosmic! Truly a awesome experience. Exquisite location and the house itself WONDERFUL.

I have traveled a great deal in my life. I have visited many knock out locations in the United States. I also have sought out the unique power spots of the earth with big-big international travel over the past two decades. This spot will stay with me for a LONG time. I hope to return in the not too distant future. The actual location is perched on... Read More

Don't pass this one by.

Sooo beautiful. It is a sanctuary. I slept like a baby there. The interior design is enough reason to stay there. It is lovely, interesting and oh so comfortable. I felt as if I'd entered into a place very different from home, a place where one goes to be inspired. The view is panoramic and breath taking. I spent lots of time sitting on the deck dr...
