Hi, I'm Christopher!

I am a dual national French American who has traveled extensively and lived in many beautiful places around the world, including Paris, NYC, Vermont, Connecticut, and South Africa-- but Santa Barbara is truly special and it has been my home for the last 26 years. I have 5 children, my wife is a retired actress, and a great cook. We love to travel and have dinner with friends, and spend time with our family. I surf, place tennis, hike, bike and go for runs-- all of which you can do almost every day in SB. There are wonderful restaurants within 10 minutes of this property; you are close to the downtown area and to the beautiful (and exclusive) community of Montecito. In the summer, you escape the beach fog since the house is on a small hill about one mile away for the East Beach (famous for beach volleyball). I am on hand and hands on, so if there is anything I can do to make your stay more enjoyable, do not hesitate to call me.

Here is my property:

Ideal for a family

“ Excellent ”
January 16, 2015
Our family -- two adults and three young adult children -- found this to be the perfect home for our holiday get-away. The home is spacious, excellently maintained and the kitchen well-furnished. Each child (ages 19-24) had their own room -- a real plus! And the master bedroom is delightfully large. All of the beds were very comfortable. We enjoyed: playing games and reading in front of the fireplace, cooking, watching TV in the family room and relaxing in the Jacuzzi. The home is in a quiet, lovely neighborhood. We enjoyed taking morning walks and chatting with several friendly neighbors. Grocery stores, restaurants and the downtown are just a few minutes drive away. We'd love to come back another season to see the garden flowers in full bloom!
