A stone's throw from Montecito, the small seaside hamlet of Summerland is terraced along a magnificent hillside overlooking the Pacific Ocean. From their graceful perches, many of Summerland's homes enjoy breathtaking ocean and island views. In the distance, larger homes and ranches are sprinkled among the rolling hills. Along its main avenue below, there is an impressive collection of shops offering antiques, home furnishings, and garden accessories. Charming cafes, spas, and Bed and Breakfast Inns complete this idyllic setting.
