Step through the gates of Spring House and you will be welcomed by a serene fountain and Zen statuary. Enjoy secluded privacy in a lush tropical setting. Step outside the gates and you are a mere 5 minute walk from Butterfly Beach - the most beautiful beach in Santa Barbara, the historic Four Seasons Biltmore Hotel and Spa, and Coast Village Road - the exclusive heart of Montecito with a wide variety of dining options, boutiques and gift shops, and business and banking services. Enjoy that vacation cocktail without the worry of driving home!

The layout of Spring House allows maximum flexibility for multiple families or families traveling with a nanny. This property is owner managed and we are committed to ensuring you have the vacation of your dreams, so please ask us if you have any special needs. We will respect your privacy: Spring House will be ready and waiting for you with no management contact unless you initiate it.

Spring House exceeds customary expectations, and is a luxury experience from original art to thread count to Viking appliances. The living room contains two separate conversation areas which lead to an enclosed terrace through two sets of French doors, where a second fountain provides background music for your dining or lounging pleasure. The formal dining room seats six with room for additional tables and an adjacent bar with five bar stools. The first kitchen is adjacent to the dining room in an open floor plan style sharing the warmth of a gas fueled fireplace and a flatscreen tv. The kitchen is appointed with Viking appliances, granite countertops and a soaring ceiling with skylights. A glass door and pass through windows over a farmhouse sink give way to a gracious brick patio decorated with potted plants and dense landscaping where the third of four fountains gurgles while you dine or relax. The BBQ is located here. The media room also serves as a fourth bedroom with complete privacy; it houses a 47' flatscreen, a second fireplace, and a queen sleeper sofa with additional memory foam feather bed. The studio contains a queen bed, an abbreviated kitchen (sink, microwave, mini-fridge), and a full bathroom. The wall of windows in the studio folds open to a lanai with treadmill, fountain, jacuzzi and sauna.

The master bedroom is furnished with an exotic teak king bed, a fireplace, and flatscreen. It includes a huge walk-in closet with built-in dresser, an en suite bathroom with travertine counters and floors and a dressing table. The second bedroom also has an en suite bathroom, a queen four-poster, and a private balcony. The third bedroom is charmingly decorated with a seating area, and contains a king size bed and a daybed with trundle to sleep four people comfortably. A fourth full bathroom is adjacent to the media room and the third bedroom. The house is well stocked with iPod docking stations, movies, books, games, and puzzles.

The multiple cooking and dining options make Spring House a perfect location for major holidays or multi-family vacations. The extensive landscaping is well-lit for leisurely al fresco evenings in Santa Barbara's year-round temperate climate. The outdoor experience at this compound is a fantasy of light, sound, water and tropical foliage. Expect the very best...You will get it here!

Perfect for family reunions and close to all

The home is spacious and well-maintained, lots of space. The lush grounds invite both play and relaxation, something for everyone. Although having neither beachfront nor mountain view, the location is ideal for walking to the beach (across the Biltmore) or to Montecito town for a morning coffee or a short drive to East Beach, the zoo, funk zone, State St. Our kids and young grandkids enjoyed our stay and would definitely consider returning just to see our hosts' "Welcome to Paradise" sign!
