Description

Greg has described his/her home in English.

What you will love about this home

Surrounded by nature with 180-degree ocean and mountain views, our dog-friendly property offers guests a serene and private retreat. Enjoy our hot tub, hammock, and deck chairs overlooking the Channel Islands, Pacific Ocean, and National Forest.

Walls of windows and french doors give our home a breezy, welcoming feel. From the hot tub and hammock to our updated kitchen, we encourage you to make yourself at home and enjoy our peaceful mountain retreat as much as we do!

`The master bedroom is appointed with a full size bed with memory foam mattress topper. There is a view of neighboring mountains, valleys, and the Pacific Ocean. French doors open to the patio. The second bedroom also has a full size bed and memory foam, but without the stunning view. We have an air mattress available to put on the floor of the living room as well.

The one bathroom has a shower, or you can soak in the hot tub on our deck overlooking the Channel Islands. We are sorry but our home does not have air conditioning - during the hot summer months we include a fan in the rooms.

Please note that the last 1.7 miles to reach our property is up a narrow, winding paved road. There are many pullouts to enjoy the grand vistas of Santa Barbara and the Pacific Ocean, but it is definitely a road you need to drive slowly and carefully.

What you will love in the neighborhood

Our property is adjacent to Chumash Painted Cave State Historic Park, up a winding paved road about 5 miles north of the 101 in the San Marcos Pass. The Painted Cave neighborhood is a mixture of rustic cabins and grand retreats tucked into the hills above Santa Barbara.

By car, we are less than 20 minutes from downtown Santa Barbara. We are also 20 minutes from the Santa Barbara airport, UCSB, and several different beaches.

Additional information

Our home is lived-in and comfortable and not a sanitized hotel. We have two friendly dogs , Winter (flat coated retriever) and Smudge (husky mix). They are both soft and sweet and shed like crazy. We happily host fellow dog owners without charging an additional pet fee! If you would like to bring your dog to stay with us, please message us before booking (age, breed, temperament, etc.) so we can discuss details. We are sorry that we can only host guest dogs as long as you are on the premises to supervise them.

We are in a serious drought so water conservation is very important to us. We collect rainwater and use grey water from our shower and laundry to responsibly irrigate our garden and fruit trees. Fire danger is also very real, so no cigarette smoking is allowed on our property.
