Beyond Excellent

  • 5 of 5

For a long time my wife and I wanted to bring our relatives from Ohio to get a taste of California life. Problem was, our modest mid-century ranch home would not even begin to accommodate even a small percentage of them when we considered the children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. And so we searched and searched until we found the perfect location in Santa Barbara.... Rancho Vista De La Playa. Our gathering numbered about 30 people some of whom traveled from places further away than Ohio like South Carolina and even Belize. Our ages ranged from 3 months to 93 years. There was absolutely something for everyone here. Whether one wanted to swim in the salt water pool, relax in the hot tub or kick back in the pergola and read a book, this was a terrific venue for us. There is even a putting green.

Nearby there are many fine restaurants and shops as well as the necessary grocery stores and filling stations. The property is laid out really well with the pool up by the guest houses and the main house is positioned so that it takes advantage of the sea breezes that make sitting outside so much more comfortable as well as allowing the temperature inside the home to be naturally more comfortable. The grounds are impeccably maintained. Michelle is very helpful in preparing you for your stay and making sure that everything is perfect when you arrive. Eddie is a very gracious host and very responsive when needs arise. Buddy, the dog, is a great ambassador. The artwork in the main house deserves your attention as it includes many items that you may never see anywhere else, and as you browse if you are not careful you just might learn a few things. My personal favorite has to be Eddie's guitar collection which is beautifully displayed. The kitchen in the main house is spacious and well equipped. There are very nice outdoor grills on the patio as well. I had to really think hard to find something to comment on that could be improved upon. The only thing I could come up with is that the water pressure at times was a bit low in the main house, not in the guest cabins though. The pictures of the property really don't begin to capture the beauty of this estate. When you arrive you are literally transported to another realm. I highly recommend this ranch to anyone who is looking for a nice, relaxing vacation with all the conveniences you might want, close to town, yet secluded enough, and large enough for a big family gathering.

A weekend with Friends that was Peeerfection!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I organized a weekend with our oldest friends and are so happy that we rented Eddie's estate. The location is perfection! While you are on the actual property you feel like you are the only people in the world but in actuality you are about 3 miles from restaurants and even less from stores and gas stations. Michelle and Eddie were so incredibly easy to work with - they were very responsive. Eddie stays on the property during the weekend, which I preferred. He left us to ourselves, but it was really helpful to have him close by when we needed something or had a question. Eddie recommended an amazing pizza guy that brought a pizza oven right to the house. 99% of the weekend took place in the pool. It's big and saltwater, and we loved it! I wouldn't have changed a thing! We did need to be conscious of the noise after 10 PM. We were still able to have a good time, but we had to be considerate of the neighbors at the bottom of the valley as sound travels. So music at the pool had to be turned down around 10 PM on the evenings. Michelle and Eddie answered any questions we had immediately and were so helpful. We had people staying off property and Michelle recommended a PERFECT hotel that was close, affordable and adorable. Ahhhh what a weekend.

Santa Barbara Estate - perfect for family reunions - Dorothy S.

  • 5 of 5

We reserved this beautiful estate for a family reunion over the Thanksgiving holiday. We couldn't have been more pleased. We ranged in age from two years to eighty five. Everyone was comfortable, the children had ample play areas, the views were spectacular. The adults enjoyed all the amenities, and felt like we were in a hideaway but were able to be in Santa Barbara in fifteen minutes. Our hosts, Eddie and Michelle, were always available and tended to our every need. I whole heartedly recommend this beautiful home for any gathering.

Owner's Response: Hello Dorothy, So happy to hear you Thanksgiving turned out great. The property truly is a gem, hidden away in complete serenity. Private, yet so close to the airport, and downtown Santa Barbara. Giving our guest the best experience possible is our number #1 goal. Delighted to hear your family enjoyed themselves. Cheers, Michelle

Our group had a wonderful time at the Villa. Eddie was a great host, and both he and Michelle were quick to accommodate any requests that we had. The property is stunning and has lots of great amenities to go with the views. I would definitely stay here again.
