Kick off your shoes and relax! Seascape Retreat is a perfect blend of luxury and comfort with year round panoramic views of the blue coastal waters.
Located just outside the gates of Hope Ranch in Santa Barbara, this single level ranch-style home on 1.5 acres offers sweeping coastal views from sunrise to sunset.
The large deck overlooking the ocean, pool and spa sets the mood; it almost feels as if you are on the view deck on a private yacht! Breathe in the crisp salty air and feel transported to the open sea. Whether enjoying the sparkling pool, sitting around the fire pit, or just relaxing 'on deck', there are plenty of places to sit, dine, relax and play!
Inside, the fresh white walls offset colors of the sand and sea that create a cool backdrop for the comfortable furnishings. The home is bright and light with nautical touches in nearly every room.
The Family Room, with sliding doors to the pool terrace, is just off the Kitchen, making it convenient for the chef to stay connected to all the activity and conversation nearby. Ice blue ultra suede couches make this a great spot for comfortable reading or family movie night. Enjoy fresh squeezed juice everyday , or a margarita at sunset from the abundance of fruit trees on the property that include tangerine, orange, lemon and limes.
In the Formal Living Room, scoop up a pair of binoculars and sit in the captain's chairs to observe the migrating activity of water fowl, seals and whales against the ever changing horizon. On cooler nights, curl up with a good book in front of the fire.
Visit the Farmers Markets in Santa Barbara or Montecito and bring home fresh local produce, cheeses and wines. With this local bounty, experiment in the well equipped Kitchen, or hire a private chef to cook a fabulous feast that will be served to you in style in the formal Dining Room where there is seating for eight.
The home has been conveniently designed with families in mind. The Master Bedroom not only has great views and a king-size bed, but also a day bed with trundle offering convenience for junior travelers to stay under the watchful eye of their parents. Stay as long as you like; there is abundant closet space for long term guests.
The Master Bathroom provides a luxurious soaking shower experience with a large rain shower head in the glass walk-in shower.
The south facing Bedroom #2 looks past the pool terrace and down to the ocean below. The north facing Bedroom #3 faces the front yard where a great swing hangs lazily from the sturdy branches of an old elm tree in the center of the flat grass lawn. A hall Bathroom with a sun drenching skylight is shared by these two Guestrooms.
Seascape Retreat has been designed for fun, with something for everyone. The garage has been cleverly converted to a great Media Room with theatre style seating. Pop some popcorn, turn out the lights, turn on the Surround Sound and enjoy a night 'at the movies'. For the more competitive guest, roll out the Ping-Pong table and get a tournament going. Other toys for guest use include boogie boards, pool toys, beach chairs, umbrellas, games, puzzles and more!
Local beaches are nearby, or take a drive through the winding roadways inside Hope Ranch that reveal a lush landscape dotted with quaint cottages, sprawling ranches, and fabulous estates. Located just a 2 minute drive to Santa Barbara's famous Boat House Restaurant at Hendry's Beach and a 7 minute drive to Downtown Santa Barbara.
Set your compass! A stay at Seascape Retreat with its playful casual ambiance, great amenities, and proximity to activities on land or sea promises smooth sailing with the wind at your back!

Thank you so much for the use of this awesome house. The wedding was the best ever, partly thanks to this place. The bride dressed here, the attendants had their makeup done looking at your view--it was fantastic. We'll be back, I hope, to visit the happy memories.
