Tranqui-la - Resort Living on the Riviera
NOTE: 30-NIGHT MINIMUM STAY EFFECTIVE 1/1/17
Tranqui-La is an architectural masterpiece reminiscent of the style of Frank Lloyd Wright. Beautiful natural materials come together in harmonious design elements that give the home its peaceful and serene quality. This dramatic property is located at the end of a private cul-de-sac, and overlooks all of Santa Barbara. The home was designed on 3 separate levels so all major living spaces face breathtaking views of the city, harbor and coastline beyond.
A sense of peace will welcome you on entering this special property. Immediately, the ocean and city views draw you out to the cantilevered balcony - the signature element of this exceptional home. Here is where you will want to spend much of your time while vacationing in this homey resort.
The bright living room has a wall of sliding glass doors that extends the living space onto the flagstone balcony. The massive sandstone fireplace and hearth is the anchor of the main-floor great room. The soaring and multiple angled ceilings with restrained oak beams give the rooms a clean and contemporary feeling. Inside the antique Tansu hutch is a stereo operating system that controls speakers throughout the home. The living room, dining room, family room and kitchen have a natural and open flow with oak and natural stone flooring throughout the main level.
The clean and beautiful lines of this state-of-the-art kitchen will impress everyone and the well designed layout and amenities will make the most exacting chef ecstatic. Soapstone counters make a wonderful work surface. Natural rift oak and graphite laminate face the sleek German cabinetry and large center island. 3 Wolf ovens, 2 Miele dishwashers, a Sub-Zero refrigerator, 2 additional refrigerator drawers, 2 prep sinks, and a separate ice machine provide an abundance of convenience. The owners have generously stocked the kitchen with cooking tools and supplies; inviting you to begin creating fabulous meals. When you look up from your chopping, the views from the kitchen are quite spectacular, too.
The family room with flat screen TV and fireplace becomes a great hang-out place. The soft leather sofa reclines, inviting guests to relax in front of the fireplace. A private patio just outside offers access to the barbeque and another outdoor dining area. A bedroom suite, with twin trundle bed, is adjacent to the family room.
The Master bedroom suite (located on the main level) is sleek, warm and inviting. It has another wood burning gas fireplace with raised hearth, and convenient reading lights are located over the king size bed. The windows and sliding doors make this room feel part of the balcony just outside and gives direct access to the spa below. With privacy intact, design choices include the intentional absence of window treatments in this and other areas, creating seamless views. Warm summer evenings here have a nice ocean breeze to cool you as you drift off to sleep. The master bath has the feeling of a spa resort with a large walk-in shower and luxurious soaking tub designed with a seamless glass corner window for ocean viewing.
Even while on vacation, sometimes it's important to keep up with work or just look up local restaurant reviews. A studio loft upstairs offers more spectacular views, built-in desks, a large work space, and the convenience of modern office equipment. This is the perfect space to take care of business, so bring your laptops.
Indoors and outdoors easily merge throughout the home, but especially once you descend the open staircase to the lower level. The common area between the two bedroom suites, with stone fireplace and refreshment bar, creates a feeling of a separate residence with privacy from the main level. The triple glass sliders open the indoor recreation area to the pool deck, and to the serenity of the infinity pool and spa. Musical instruments, games, and a large library of books, CD's and Videos are provided for guests to enjoy.
From the inviting pool area, practice yoga on the lawn, read a novel or just quietly allow the beauty and tranquility of this place slow the pace of your life. For ease of entrance to the lower level of the home, there is convenient parking accessed from the street below.
Tranqui-La is a unique retreat for an unforgettable stay above Santa Barbara's spectacular south-facing coastline. It promises a welcome respite from daily stress, and real quality time with loved ones, in a beautiful and warm setting. Come. Enjoy

We loved your beautiful home. The view was outstanding and the layout of your home was great! The kitchen was amazing as well. The proximity to Montecito and downtown Santa Barbara was certainly a plus. The bathroom were very nice and the entire house was great all together. The temperatures were above average while we were here, but when we opened the windows at night, the cool ocean breeze cooled the house down and kept it cooler during the days when we shut the windows and doors. We are looking forward to coming back!
The house was set up very nicely for 7 adults or 4 adults and 4 kids. The kitchen, family and dining rooms were wonderful centers of family gathering and there was plenty of space for people to find their own spot to read or hang out.
Unfortuntately, no one had been to the property before our arrival to be sure the house was ready. The pool was not heated or cleaned and worst of all the heat wasn't operable in the downstairs for two days. The company was responsive to our requests for assistance with very nice maintenance people, however it required two days for the heat to come up through the floor.
Wonderful property in the hills just above Downtown Santa Barbara. Short trip to the Mission, downtown, hiking or to the beach. Great inside/out feel to the property since all back rooms open with large sliding glass doors to the decks. Nice play pool with a large, very comfortable hot tub. Quiet neighborhood location with lots of privacy. Would love to come back again!
We love our stay!!
The house is very comfortable, space, charming and has an optimal energy!
Kitchen is wonderful, fully equipped. Pool área is also great !
My only consideration is the absence of curtains, which takes away some of our privacy. And quality of Matress and bedding could be better.
Our season was fantastic! o
We stayed here with a mix of adults and young children. This house offered something for everyone! The adults enjoyed an array of amenities from fully equipped kitchen (even a state of the art espresso machine!), incredible views, comfortable bedding, and amazing sound system all while the kids where have a blast in the pool and playing any one of the many games that was supplied in a closet full of toys and fun for the kids! This house is far enough away from the hustle and bustle to wind down and relax but close enough for a quick drive to shopping, beach, zoo, and many others that surround this beautiful area. We would stay again in a heartbeat!
This house with its tremendous hilltop views of the Santa Barbara harbor and coastline was the perfect setting for my wife's surprise 60th birthday party. Our family thoroughly enjoyed all of the amenities - huge, spacious kitchen, fantastic music sound system, hot tub, pool, etc. The modern architectural design, wide-open balconies, made everyone feel comfortable and relaxed. Just a real special place.
We stayed at Tranqui-La for 5 days during my daughter's destination wedding in SB and it will forever be a wonderful memory as part of the celebration. The architecture is one-of-a kind and views were spectacular. The house was luxuriously appointed. The kitchen was equipped for entertaining with two dish washers and extra fridge space. We had many guests during the 5-day stay and they all wanted a tour of this spectacular home. The salt-water pool was great for the kids. Beds were very comfortable. If we have another family rendezvous in SB, this will be our house of choice.
