Just south of Montecito rests the quaint beach town of Summerland that graces the central coast with a rich history dating back to the oil boom of the late 1800s. Originally founded as a spiritual community, today Summerland is dotted with vacation bungalows, funky beach cottages and elegant hilltop estates; its hills command a quiet presence facing the Pacific below.

With expansive ocean views and a convenient location along Hwy 101, the town attracts visitors and locals seeking a scenic ocean-side setting with small town point of view.  Summerland boasts a small town center with a cache of distinguished antique shops, local boutiques and lively restaurants like Summerland Beach Cafe, and The Nugget (where President Clinton once played his saxophone!)

Summerland’s personality is still as alluring as its vibrant past, with eclectic architecture and a slow relaxed pace. Quaint California bungalows, condominiums, and clapboard cottages cozy up to larger modern residences thoughtfully oriented towards the stunning coastal backdrop with the Channel Islands front and center on the horizon. With Montecito right next door, home values here are a bit more affordable with views that more than rival its upscale neighbor.

This coastal gem is everything one could wish for in a peaceful seaside community.
