Fiona FitzHerbert purchased this house in 2009
It's utterly beautiful! We wake in the morning and just go ahhhh... We step out on the decks and are continually captivated by the beauty of our home. We are health enthusiasts, and have created our oasis to be just that. A big private fresh water Jacuzzi bath tub under an old olive tree with ocean views to soak up. An ozonated hot tub to relax in pure warm water without the need for chemicals to toxify our bodies. An outside infrared sauna under our giant pepper tree, to sweat out the impurities. Fountains and gardens and views and privacy – just lovely! All the walls of our home inside and out are covered with natural old-world Venetian plasters, stucco and limewash. Walls that are natural and actually breathe. We love color, and as you can see in the pictures, we brought a whole slew of them into our perfect retreat property. We welcome you to come and experience our taste of ‘wonder’ and comfort when you come to Santa Barbara. We just had a recent guest from a competing website that had to say... 'Fiona's Santa Barbara Hillside Oasis is spectacular in every way. The posted description is accurate, but does not begin to describe the beauty of the home- the architecture, the decor, the landscaping, the neighborhood; the house is 5 star hotel clean, comfortable with silky sheets and fluffy absorbent towels, lovely scented body wash is available in all bathrooms. The 'Love Shack', set slightly uphill on the property, provides a fourth bedroom of equal comfort and amenities to those found in the main house. It is so pleasurable to sit outside on one of the many patios, balconies and terraces and just take in the splendor of the terraced gardens on the property. The house feels quite remote but is only a 5 minute drive to great hiking, the best beaches and the downtown Santa Barbara shopping and dining district. Fiona was wonderful to work with prior to our booking, providing prompt and comprehensive responses to our many questions. The welcome basket...'
This is just a stunning location. Close to the beach and town with everything that you can possibly need and more. Beauty, Ocean views, Island views, Harbor views, City views... it's all here to just enjoy. And our 5 year creation to make this home such a wonderful retreat for us, and for those that we love sharing it with.
We spent a wonderful week in this lovely Oasis. The view is exceptionnal. the place inspires calm and serenity. The garden is a small paradise for lovers of nature and meditation.
We had a wonderful time over the fourth of July weekend at this stunning home. We were four adults, three small children and two dogs and the house felt spacious and open. Though the pictures posted here adequately show the interior (which is really incredibly lovely), they do not do justice to the outdoors of the property and the care and detail given to the landscaping. I think we spent as much time enjoying the grounds as we did playing with the kids in the living room and cooking dinner together.
We had a few questions about the house upon arrival, and contacted the people provided as the homeowners were traveling. Within an hour, the homeowners themselves called us back to answer our questions which seemed over and above to us!
We are looking forward to making it back as soon as we can.
This was the perfect getaway oasis for our week long trip to Santa Barbara. Nestled in the hills of SB it's quiet yet accessible to the main town. The rooms are spacious and charming with lovely decor. You can tell the owners have put great thought into this home rental. They communicated all of the nuances of the property which made it very easy to enjoy our stay. We enjoyed the outdoor patio and lounges overlooking the Pacific along with the hot tub. The gardens are impressive and mature - truly making you feel as if you are in a luxury resort. The style of home is one of my favorites - Mediterranean design - charming entry ways, french doors, wrought iron details that add to the many charms of this magnificent home. We cannot wait to return next year! We feel so fortunate to have had this opportunity to stay in this lovely hillside oasis!
As well as being very close to the beach, the property is 2 minutes from world famous Lotusland, and minutes from many nearby natural parks and hiking trails.
