With great intention, creativity & love, an exclusive 3 acre realm invented for those seeking a quiet, sensual nature connection experience! A unique retreat experience that is playful, soulful & beyond belief EPIC. Consists of private whimsical free standing cottage, outside lounge kitchen, redwood outside shower/ bath house, pool, hot tub, hammocks & fresh eggs from the chickens. Off the grid yet minutes to beach, trails, wine tasting & downtown Santa Barbara. Renew, be happy!

The space
The ENCHANTING FANTASTICAL CHICKEN HOUSE COTTAGE is a playful, soulful, warm and wondrous thing designed to be both modern and vintage. The cottage looks out to an epic view of the Santa Barbara mountain range and the grove itself. Two collaged walls of vintage windows give you a stunning view of the surrounding trees of Oak, Sycamore and lemon. Organic feeling.. this space brilliantly brings the inside and outside worlds together in beautiful harmony day or night.. starlit or moonlit. Birds chirping and the sweet sounds of wind through the trees, hang in the hammock with air feel divine, sun supreme. Off the cottage is a beautiful hammock taking in one of several giant Sycamore trees and of course the majestic oaks!

This 3 acre grove area is a private gated realm for people looking for quiet retreat... which contains two incredible cottages situated about 150 feet apart and facing opposite directions for the most privacy possible while maintaining their own unique views. This listing is for the ONE FANTASTICAL COTTAGE. If you'd like both (+ Glass house), you can reserve under the listing NATURE CONNECTION SANCTUARY w/ 2 GLASS COTTAGES (listings under my hostess profile page).

If just reserving the one cottage, to note, I designed this so visitors could have both privacy, but also enjoy common spaces like the pool/ hot tub area (on the other side of the property/taking turns only.. so you have it to yourselves when you're up there) and the grove outside kitchen/ lounge area and gorgeous redwood outside shower bath house (shared with the other cottage (1-2 people) in the grove. PERFECT for those wishing for their sleeping house, but also some common community space.. keeps the price nice while having wonderful sharing spaces.

There's another page devoted to the "GLASS HOUSE" (listed as Dreamy Glass Cottage in Nature Paradise) which has a gorgeous modern design with two walls of thick solid glass which gives the illusion of being outside, but the feeling of cozy protection. A strange and wonderful juxtapostion of moods! The space is creekside under giant sycamores, native oaks. Outside mirrored walls give the illusion of being invisible as it reflects the surrounding woods and grove The glass house has a very luxurious, organic feeling.. as does the chicken house but each is totally unique!

Besides the private cottages, the grove consists of a colorful covered outside kitchen/ hang out zone and an extra spacious redwood outside shower and bath house. All spaced about 100-300 feet apart. And of course the house of the hens who lay fresh organic eggs for your breakfast! (Yes there is a rooster. Yes he sounds! Yes it's a wondrous thing!) Not to mention the grand trampaline! and pool/ hot tub access accessible on the other side of the land.

Now, those are the man made things. The "hallway" is the land itself.. which is something I really can't capture visually here. There's a quality of this place that profoundly nurtures the senses.. smell, site, sound... reorganizing your central nervous system in all the ways we so desperately need in this modern world!

One of the incredible things about this property is that it's a mere 2 miles to shopping malls, Whole Foods and restaurants (5 minutes) and 10 minutes to downtown Santa Barbara, wine tasting rooms, hip funk zone, shopping... 5 minutes to an amazing preserve/ trail head that leads out to the ocean, 10 minutes right to the beach. We're also just 30 minutes from Santa Ynez, Los Olivos, Solvang (wine country).

The land is unique because it feels like you're very remote and off the grid out in nature (which you are) but then it's just minutes to get anywhere in Santa Barbara. Very find rare to find such a spot with so much surrounding private serene land!

The setting is ideal for 2-4 adults (4 if you're taking both cottages (Nature Sanctuary w/ 2 glass cottages under my hostess profile page) and 2 if you're occupying just one) or one solo soul looking to retreat. I totally welcome pets $30 extra cash/vnmo (+ $20 per extra pup) and some doggy ground rules so please let me know if you're planning to bring your beloved animal.

This has been such a passion of mine, sharing my land... letting nature be of benefit to people who are making their beautiful memories here. It's an honor to have visitors part of the unfolding story of my home. I've marveled at the care and respect people bring.. so a place like this can exist for the enjoyment of all.. including the trees, the critters, the intact ecosystem I get to be a hostess to. Makes my heart glad!!!

I live on the property in my "own neck of the woods" (so I'm around by text or in person if needed). If possible love to welcome visitors briefly with a hug and all the info so the experience goes smooth and safe. We are not too likely to cross paths as this is a very large property, but I have "your back" for anything you might need!

The photographs... I have to say, DO NOT GIVE JUSTICE.. You'll know what I mean when you get here...the stillness... the open, natural setting, nurturing and safe feeling. It's a very special zone in which to unravel, revise and renew. To get a deeper sense of peoples experiences of coming to this 11 acre paradise I'm so blessed to have and share... please read the reviews for my "Stunning exclusive YURT on 11 acres" & "Magic Retreat HOME on 11 acres" which I've been opening up to people these last 3 years. These reside a world away from the grove, as this is a very large property! Anyway, hundreds of FIVE STAR reviews!!.. whoohoo!! will give you a sense of peoples experiences. Awesome and an honor being a superhost. Hope to share in it with you!

p..s. as this is a nature connection offering, to understand the full range of the ecosystem. Birds cannot exist without insects, growing things cannot exist without Earth. As I long for you to get exactly what you need, please be sure you are one who can welcome nature as a whole understanding this before you book. While we do everything in our power to remove daddy long legs and certainly the space is CLEAN, still the occasional spider or moth can enter the spaces especially with doors open (i DO recommend doors open!). And to understand it is benign and safe here to do so. IF you prefer a sterile hotel room, do go that route. Nature connection is not for everyone and I want you happy wherever you land! Thank you!

Where you’ll be

Santa Barbara, California, United States

My private property is a very large land, 11 acres, which is surrounded by other large private properties and national forest. We are outside neighborhood zones, a half mile off a private road, so it feels very much off the grid. Amazingly we are a mere 5 minutes from uptown shops in Santa Barbara, 10 minutes to dog friendly leashless beaches, airport and train station, 30 minutes to Santa Ynez wine country and 10-12 minutes anywhere in the heart of Santa Barbara shops, restaurants and entertainment. Truly best of ALL worlds!

During your stay

I love to greet guests with a hug and warm hello, fill you in on things so your stay goes smooth. Otherwise we are likely to not cross paths as this is more of a place to get a wonderful remote, private experience.
