About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bath & Private Patio Overlooking Koi Pond, Waterfall & Gardens

A Truly Luxurious Guest Suite Awaits You Beyond The Magic Gate...

[NOTE: We are in a completely different region of Santa Barbara than the area many miles to the south that was impacted by last December's fire and mudslide. We are in a wonderful part of town that remains pristinely beautiful].

Discover the spacious 750 sq. ft. studio apartment with 13 ft. high cathedral ceilings, expansive mountain view window and 2nd floor outdoor covered balcony overlooking the koi pond, waterfall and luscious gardens. Located next to the main house where the owners live, you'll have your own private entrance and experience complete privacy. This extraordinary space is used exclusively for vacation rentals, so it's appointed with truly luxurious furnishings and amenities which you'll love. All of this combines to make your stay in Santa Barbara unforgettable.

Our tropical backyard and waterfall makes you feel like you're in Bali. Whimsical and creative gardens that will have you talking about them for months afterwards - especially the innovative hydroponic beds.

Perfect for 1 or 2 people here on business or a romantic getaway. Fireplace, Cal-King size bed with heated mattress pad & deliciously soft linens. Ceragem - far infared massage bed with jade rollers to ease your back and help you forget about any stresses. Fully equipped kitchenette with refrigerator, stove and counter space. Full bath with shower & luxury robes. Set your own combo to the in-room safe. Well equipped gym and free weights available on the premises. Borrow bikes & helmets for exploring town. Beach towels, chairs and sand pail. Free private parking behind secure closed gate.

Free super-fast Wi-Fi internet & large flat screen HD TV.

If you are looking for a very special retreat space that is secluded yet close to town, then this is for you. Stay a weekend, a week or a month and indulge yourselves in a trip you'll remember forever.

We work from our home office and are on the property almost 24/7, so we will be available to offer assistance or any help you may need. We will of course also completely respect your privacy.

About Mindy Rosenblatt and Evelyn Jacob

We are artists, business owners, software developers and currency traders. We have each lived in Santa Barbara for over 35 years and have owned retail gift stores, restaurants and bakeries in that time.

We love this town and have carved out a very special area of it for you to call home during your visit. We have lived in many areas of Santa Barbara, Montecito and Carpinteria - yet find Mission Canyon, where we now live, to be one of the best places in the entire area. When other parts of the coast are foggy and cold, our little piece of paradise basks in warm sunlight.

We love being close to downtown, UCSB (The University of California Santa Barbara) and the Music Academy of the West in Montecito - so all the cultural wealth of the town is easily within reach.

Mindy Rosenblatt and Evelyn Jacob purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Mindy Rosenblatt and Evelyn Jacob chose Mission Canyon

Mission Canyon is known as one of the best places in Santa Barbara because it's almost always sunny here, far enough from the beach to avoid the morning fog and close enough to the mountains for great hikes & day trips. It's also close enough to downtown that you can easily walk to all the great shops, theaters and restaurants Santa Barbara has to offer.

What makes this apartment unique

We think of our property as an evolving, living spiritual abode, and we are constantly 'feeding' it with our creative energy, as we bring more artistic inspiration into every aspect of it. We often have garden groups come for private tours - even the docents of the famous Lotusland in Montecito - and artists from around the country come to see what lies 'behind the magic gates'.

Beautiful Property with gracious hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Pictures do not due this property justice. It is beautiful in a great location for easy access to anything in Santa Barbara. It is well furnished with everything being 5 star including the gracious owners Mindy and Evelyn. They were always very careful not to invade our privacy but were always willing to take the time to explain their gardens, grounds and provide useful information about the city and surrounding areas. We would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a beautiful, upscale, well furnished place to relax in Santa Barbara.

Really special place!

  • 5 of 5

Evelyn and Mindy were exceptional hosts, and their property was perfect for us! We could not have felt more at home, and the location was great for walking, biking, etc. Their garden was beautiful and unique, and the suite was as well. Five stars!

Practical Enchantment

  • 5 of 5

This place is magical, as are Evelyn and Mindy, who have created a most beautiful home away from home for their guests (and for themselves). From the moment we entered through the gate, we knew we were in for a special experience. We were so right. The space we lived in for 5 nights (and would have happily stayed longer) is private, spacious, intelligently designed and appointed, and outfitted with every needed appliance and toiletry, and then some; including a wonderful sound system, a heated massage table, a comfortable bed and well planned lighting. Wine, bread and snacks awaited us, as did Evelyn, who made us feel immediately welcome, and who went out of her way to offer assistance and share the history and wonder of their evolving gardens and her art. We came away with new ideas for our own home, and with hopes of returning. If you stay there, you will congratulate yourself for finding it. Barbara & Henry

Suite Peas is the best

  • 5 of 5

Our four night stay at Suite Peas was perfect. Evelyn and Mindy have created a very special place for themselves and their guests. The luxury garden apartment has everything one needs for a relaxing and enjoyable stay. This was our first trip to Santa Barbara and Suite Peas but it won't be our last. We whole heartily recommend Suite Peas and concur with all of the previous reviewers...there is nothing not to love about this amazing place.

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

We've been using VRBO for almost 20 years. Suffice to say we've now had several dozen rental experiences all over the country. The space that Mindy and Evelyn offer has found itself at the very top of the list. Clean, quiet, inspiring and restful. I cannot imagine needing anything more than what they've provided.

The hosts themselves are only noticed if you are interested in engaging; which is mostly my preference. However; they are some of the most authentic people I've ever come in contact with. They are honestly very special people who have created a very special place. I am in love with Santa Barbara now. Even more with Suite Peas Garden Apartment.

Thank you Mindy and Evelyn. We appreciate the healing space more than we can say. We hope to return this year. Be well!
