Very comfortable beautiful home with million dollar view! Great family friendly rental with pool and Jacuzzi and grotto area. Lots of steps, be careful with little ones! We had a wonderful, memorable weekend.
Down-side: House was not very clean when we arrived, floors were very dusty and dirty. Not enough flatware for six people to have a meal! Broken blender. We contacted the company responsible for the rental and were told they would get back to us, which they did...three days after we left!
We have stayed in many homes in and around Santa Barbara, but this Riviera retreat is by far the most beautiful. It is located on a private drive perched on its own bluff top. There's practically no neighbors around so very private. The home itself is a classic Mediterranean red tile roof, white stucco beauty with fine details throughout. High wood beam ceilings and plenty of gathering areas. The views are stunning in all directions. My sister in-law is a realtor in SB and has never seen a property with views like this - no obstructions at all - no trees, other houses, power poles... just views of the ocean, City and canyon. There's a stone walkway into this canyon that makes you feel like you're in a magical mountain home. The salt-water pool is lovely and the Master has a sauna and steam shower. We had 8 in our group and there were many times when we all had our own outdoor space and felt completely secluded. 4 Fireplaces at the home. The owner has done a fine job with the furnishings and amenities. I HIGHLY recommend this property for a family or friend experience to be treasured.
