Minutes from Montecito and Rosewood’s Miramar, staying at Valhalla is like having your own private San Ysidro Ranch with Lotusland gardens. Located along the Santa Barbara coastline, a mile from the sparkling Pacific Ocean, Valhalla is a hidden gem that's sure to take your breath away. The estate sits on 4 flat acres of manicured grounds and is tucked behind a privately gated entry down a long olive tree-lined driveway. Nestled among neighboring estates, horse stables, orchards, and polo fields, this is a prime location that offers both seclusion and accessibility.

Valhalla has a rich history, having first been a ranch before becoming one of the esteemed estates of "El Montecito" in the 1920s. The main house is a Spanish Monterey Colonial built in 1920, which has been thoughtfully updated to provide modern comforts and amenities while maintaining its old-world charm. With expansive upper and lower decks, the house invites you to soak in the stunning surroundings and enjoy the timeless elegance of a bygone era.

Whether you're looking for adventure or relaxation, Valhalla offers both a sanctuary to unwind or easy access to countless activities and excursions. Just steps away from the driveway, you can access the Montecito Trail system, with postcard views around every corner, or rent horses for a trail ride among the hills or along the coast. Nearby beaches offer something for everyone, from family-friendly options to world-renowned surf breaks. Charming shops, restaurants, and cafes in Summerland and Montecito are a lovely way to spend an afternoon exploring. And if you prefer to stay close to home, Valhalla has plenty to offer - enjoy the saltwater pool, read a book in the upper balcony hammocks with views of the Channel Islands, play cards or dominoes on the veranda, or sip your morning coffee in the front porch rocking chairs.

Whatever your heart desires, Valhalla is a luxurious oasis offering privacy and accessibility, an ideal retreat for family gatherings with a wealth of activities for all. This is a destination that's sure to leave a lasting impression.
