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 Santa Barbara County

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'.

Magical, serene, beyond comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at SuitePeas almost three weeks. We felt immediately at home - the bed was even more comfortable than ours! We love the space and volume and the super comfy chaise-lounges. The thoughtful attention to every detail in the apartment is exceptional. We also enjoyed all the explanatory notes.

The location is very quiet and with the gardens and pond it feels like a paradise. Every aspect of the apartment and grounds feels like an outgrowth of Evelyn and Mindy's warmth and creativity and care. It was a treat to be there and we hope to return.

Another Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay at Suite Peas was even better than the first time. There’s nothing they could do to make it better. It’s five stars. They have beautiful and luxurious accommodations including, champagne and treats. We enjoyed feeding the koi and listening to the waterfall. They’re there when you need them but also give you complete privacy. We’re looking forward to our next stay.

The suite pea apartment and the entire property are amazing. The gardens are enchanting.

  • 5 of 5

The location is perfect. We walked and biked throughout downtown Santa Barbara and along the water. The bikes and helmets provided were excellent.

It was obvious that Mindy and Evelyn take pride in their property and making the experience perfect for everyone that stays with them. We could not have had a more perfect experience

Best place in Santa Barbara

  • 5 of 5

A friend asked me to send pics of 3 awesome things we saw in SB. I didn't even have to think. #1 was a photo of Evelyn and Mindy. #2 a photo of their garden. #3 a photo of the koi in the pond.

Santa Barbara is delightful, but without the wonderful surrounds and energy created by our wonderful hosts, it would have been just another picturesque place in California...lovely in itself!

The apartment is gorgeous. There is nothing that has not been thoughtfully considered and offered to guests. Snacks, coffee...3 kinds, tea, refrigerated items, luxury towels and bedding, even wipes for cleaning feet after walking the beaches. The space is artfully decorated, open, light, airy, inviting, and even though a main road runs right in front of the property, one would never know it once through the gates. The back patio overlooks the garden where hummingbirds hover and sip nectar from the vines and feeder. The sound of the waterfall as we sip a glass of wine lulls us into peace and relaxation.

Thank you ladies for all your lovely touches of kindness and care. You made our week one to be remembered.

A little slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

From the beautiful gardens, to the gorgeous koi pond with waterfall to the most calming wind chime we've ever heard. This artfully decorated home is the perfect get away for a truly relaxing vacation. It was a pleasure meeting both Mindy and Evelyn and we look forward to our next visit.
