General overview

Our home is located in a quiet neighborhood on a beautiful street close to parks, a large open space with a lake and 3 miles from the beach. We are less than 12 miles from downtown Santa Barbara, 7 minutes to UCSB and in walking/biking distance to grocery stores, coffee shops, etc. Our home has 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a nice outside space with fruit trees and a covered patio. This is an ideal space for families with children as we have a crib and a playroom, flat streets for bike riding and a park/playground very close by. Goleta is just north of Santa Barbara up the 101 freeway. It is a laid-back town that surrounds UCSB and has many beaches, open spaces, parks and restaurants/coffee shops. It's easy to explore the Solvang/Santa Ynez Valley which are just over the mountains from us.

The space

We have five bedrooms and two baths. The master has a king size bed and attached bathroom. Our second bedroom is used as a nursery and has a crib. Bedroom #3 is a kids room with a regular sized twin bed. Room #4 is used as an office and has a double sized futon. Bedroom #5 is a guest room with a queen bed.

Guest access

The house is a single story with an attached garage.


This is a great house for kids as we have a nursery and older kid's room plus a designated "playroom". Plenty of toys, beach equipment (umbrella, chairs, sand toys, towels, boogie board....)

Our house is a 2 minute walk to a large park with a playground and baseball area. Down the street the other direction is another park with public tennis courts and a dog park. 4 blocks away is the entrance to a large open space that includes a lake with ducks and swans, walking paths and great bird watching. There is a small train museum and historical home-turned-museum attached to the open space that feature free weekend events and summer outdoor concerts. We live three miles from Goleta Beach, a free public access beach with a pier and restaurant. We are close to mountain hiking trails, large open spaces (Ellwood features beautiful cliffs over the ocean), 7 minutes to UCSB and a 12 minute drive to downtown Santa Barbara.

Getting around

20 minute walk to a Sprouts Grocery Store, Starbucks, Bed Bath & Beyond, etc. 5 minute drive to Target, Costco and other big box stores. 12 minute drive to downtown Santa Barbara. 5 minute drive to the closest beach.
