When it comes to location, Secret Jungle ticks all the boxes. This renovated ranch enjoys total peace and quiet in the tranquil setting of the Mission Canyon while being less than a fifteen-minute drive from Santa Barbara's vibrant restaurant and bar scene. The beach is also less than a twenty-minute drive away.

At night, we recommend you sit out and delight in the bright stars as they light up the sky.
