About Our Location
Have you ever considered living in one of the most beautiful cities in California? Santa Barbra is ideally located on the Central Coast just north of
Los Angeles in between the Pacific Ocean and the Santa Ynez Mountains. The climate is as beautiful as the scenery, with amazing sunshine all year long. Santa Barbara is known for its small beach town feel, but provides all the amenities you would
expect from a much larger city. Nestled between the ocean and the mountains, Santa Barbara offers breathtaking vistas, beautiful flowers, an abundance of Spanish Colonial architecture and a mild climate. Once you come home to Santa Barbara, it’s hard
to imagine living anywhere else.
