Description of the Santa Barbara vacation villa rental
This original 1920s George Washington Smith (GWS) estate was built for Mr. Irving Wright in 1923 and has beautiful ocean and city views of Santa Barbara. GWS is considered the finest architect of his time practicing in the Spanish Colonial Revival Style and has come to be known as the Father of Santa Barbara style. This home is famously published and is one of a handful of GWS estates still in original condition. Located in the heart of the world famous Santa Barbara Riviera, it is minutes to the City and beach yet has country side privacy and ambiance. It has retained the original beauty and charm that makes GWS homes the most recognized and architecturally appreciated homes in Santa Barbara. With stunning ocean views, pool, spa, BBQ, and original outdoor stone courtyard dining area, this home will make for a memorable family experience. The completely remodeled chef's kitchen with ocean views has it all from large Viking oven and refrigerator to custom cabinets and stone counter tops, to the hand painted tile throughout. The house has been lovingly restored to its original elegance and offers 4 bedrooms: 3 king,1 queen and a bonus twin room in an accompanyying room off the master. It offers 3 full baths and 1 half bath. The large living room with soaring wood beam ceiling and fireplace has commanding ocean views and walks out onto the outdoor entertainment area with pool and spa. The large dining room with table for 12 guests is a perfect place to host a family dinner with sparking views of the Santa Barbara coast. There is a library off the living room with a desk to work or enjoy a quiet place to watch the flat screen TV. The home is approximately 4500 sq ft and sits on nearly 2 prime acres in the heart of Santa Barbara.

Great house with a great location in Santa Barbara

January 9, 2014

This was a great location and we enjoyed our stay. it was the perfect vacation. except we should have stayed longer than 7 nights!!! We were 3 families ( 6 adults and 4 teenagers). The house was large, and very clean with great bathrooms. It had lots of seating areas indoors and outdoors. We loved the swimming pool/hot tub and ate lots of avocados and oranges from the trees surrounding the property.We loved the large flat screen TV's. The beach was a bonus, so easily accessible with it's private locker for towels and chairs. The shops were quite close too. We all want to come back and stay longer, there is lots to do and of course just to relax by the pool or beach!!
