My wife and i have been staying at Villa Elegante,twice a year, for the last 10 years.Mel and Tim Werner are excellent Hosts along with manager in residence Janice Elsma.
The location is outstanding with the beach and grocery/food shopping within easy walking distance.The on and off exits to the #101 freeway are within two blocks. The villas are in a very special area that allows you to walk to the zoo,kid's playground,bird sanctuary and volleyball courts.Running and biking paths are literally out the front door of your unit.
For families the beach access couldn't be better with a kid's area at the East Beach Community building;which also has a great cafe that allows you to have breakfast/lunch on the beach.
Most of the villas have decks or patios that face the beach or mountains or both. Sitting on your deck or patio watching the Santa Barbara sunset-it just doesn't get any better than that.Great shopping and Restaurants are within a 10 minute drive to the State St. area. We often walk the 15 minutes to the Stearns Wharf area which has a bunch of good Restaurants to choose from.
By car you are only 50 minutes from the Santa Ynez Valley,Buelleton and Los Olivos. Great wine tasting and recreation areas. Santa Barbara has developed an area for wine and beer tasting in the "Funk Zone'-which is a short walk from the villas as well.
The units are fully equiped ,have maid service and the even supply beach chairs and towels.All the units have washers/dryers.Great for extended stays.
One would be hard pressed to find a time share or rental in a better area with a better climate than VIlla Elegante.

Room tip: The 2 newest Units have a roof top deck with a fantastic view of the Harbor.
