Description from owner

Relax and enjoy ocean and harbor views from this beautifully landscaped California cottage style home situated on a very quiet half acre on Santa Barbara's famous Riviera.

This warm and family friendly four bedroom and three bath home offers the luxury of a fine hotel and all the comforts of home. A little more than one mile from East Beach and State Street you are moments away from both the ocean and the heart of downtown Santa Barbara.

The beautifully decorated living room boasts hardwood floors, an Italian Marble fireplace, with all the firewood you will need, and a Baby Grand piano. The living room opens up to a casual dining room that easily accommodates eight for dinner. Both of these rooms offer a beautiful ocean view. The separate entertainment room is great for the kids with large 52 inch Sony flat screen, Blue ray DVD, Apple TV, NetFlix and surround sound, its also at the opposite end of the house so Mom and Dad can enjoy the Master Bedroom which has its own top of the line entertainment center. There are hardwood, tumbled marble and tile floors throughout keeping the home cool and comfortable throughout the summer months. The large bay windows and four sets of French doors provide plenty of natural interior light. The bathrooms and laundry room have recently been beautifully remodeled and upgraded.

Too tired to go to the beach? Stay home and enjoy the large heated saltwater pool (20' X 40') and flagstone spa. The large front yard and backyard with a Vintage 52" gas grill and searing unit make this the perfect setting for BBQs and family gatherings!

Beds: 1 King Bed, 2 Queen Beds, 4 Twin Beds

“Great Views!”

Reviewed 21 Apr 2016

We stayed at this home for 5 days and really enjoyed it. The views are killer and the home was large and comfortable enough for all 7 people. I know a few reviews of this home say there is a musty smell in the lower level but it's gone as we did not smell anything. Each bedroom has it's own deck. There is a path near the house that takes you right down to the small town of Summerland for dining and access to the beach. Overall great time and great rental.

“Ideal for a family”

Reviewed 16 Jan 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!

“Incredible Vacation Experience!”

Reviewed 8 Jun 2014

My family and I had the privilege of staying in this beautiful property last week for vacation. The house was spacious and immaculate, the neighborhood was quiet, and the pool was fun and refreshing. Our family is already planning our next summer's vacation in this same location! I highly recommend this property!!!

Owner's reply: Thank you Mike for your review!

“Wonderful condition and location!”

Reviewed 9 Dec 2013

We really enjoyed our short week at Casa Riviera. Charming yet beautifully updated home, the large kitchen was perfect for a family Thanksgiving. Views from the deck were great and downtown was a pleasant walk or drive away. Well equipped kitchen and home. Very clean and modern. It is perfect for a party of 6- our large party of 8 was a bit cramped (as the manager told me it would be) since the den with fold out couch is on the way into the master bedroom, so does not make a great bedroom for adults. I would go again!

“Family vacation”

Reviewed 8 Apr 2013

Chris was a very attentive landlord. , the house was very much as billed and the only problem that we had was with the clothes dryer and he took care of it immediately. The pool and hot tub were wonderful and my children loved the trampoline. We would definitely stay here again

“Great Weekend Getaway House”

Reviewed 9 Sep 2012

I rented this house in the summer for a girls weekend getaway and it was perfect. The backyard was great for BBQing and hanging out in the pool and spa. The inside is comfortable and had everything we needed. I would definately recommend this house!

“a lovely place to be”

Reviewed 9 Jun 2012

My family rented this home for 4 days. The house is perfect for a large group, the space is very comfortable, the pool, spa and BBQ were perfect, the view spectacular. We hope to stay again! Prior to our stay we had checked out a few other options and drove by them. This seemed the best before we arrived, and it more than fulfilled out expectations.

I chose this property for our family Thanksgiving get-away and we were all very pleased with the choice. The website photos are great yet the actual experience exceeded our expectations. The decor in this spacious home combined with quality furnishings exude warmth and comfort. A great single-level floor plan! I especially appreciated that some of us could enjoy the family room with entertainment without disturbing those who chose quiet conversation around the living room fireplace. It truly is the perfect family get-away as my young grandsons were just as happy here as their parents and grandparents. The front and backyards are just as pleasant as the indoors. While most of our ourdoor time was in the back with pool, spa, BBQ and trampline, we were also able to play badminton in the spacious front yard. View of the ocean beyond; pleasant lighting inside and out; I couldn't ask for more.

“great family time”

Reviewed 10 Nov 2011

Our family of three generations gathered here for three days to attend a family wedding. There were ten of us and we all thoroughly enjoyed staying in this beautiful house. Even though it was the end of October, we had sunny days and used the pool, the hot tub, the trampoline and the barbeque. Christopher was very helpful in quickly fixing a little glitch with the hot tub. Except for the wedding itself and a trip to the beach and trick or treating in the neighborhood, we just enjoyed staying put, and as we were leaving we all fantasized about how we could all meet here again.

“Gorgeous home!”

Reviewed 24 Oct 2011

My girls and I stayed at this house for a weekend gateway and we couldn't have been happier! The house is super spacious and has an excellent location; the house was spotless. The pool and Jacuzzi were a huge hit with my group. The pictures on this website look EXCATLY the same as the house. The owner was super responsive to my many emails and it was a pleasure dealing with him. We will definitely stay here again :)
