About Wolfgang

This 1949 Louis Lancaster designed home, was renovated in 2000 in a Mediterranean style to provide guest quarters and a ceramic artist studio. As an ceramic artist, onsite potter and teacher I find this bit of paradise inspirational.

Wolfgang purchased this apartment in 1983

Guestbook comments from the owner

A beautiful location: fantastic views of gardens and a very well equipped and comfortable apartment. A great place to celebrate our son's graduation as a family.

Thanks-we had a wonderful stay.

Santa Barbara perfection !!

  • 5 of 5

The Villa’s views of Santa Barbara, the ocean and Channel Islands beyond are amazing. At night it magical. The gardens and patio area are so relaxing and inviting, that one feels privileged to have the opportunity to experience this part of the Santa Barbara life style.

Wolfgang and Deanna are the perfect hosts.

The apartment is charming and well stocked with all those items you never thought to bring like bandages and spices, as well as the items you would hope to find. A great start up basket so you don’t have to run to the store first thing.

The whole experience was so wonderful that we leased an apartment 4 blocks away!

My husband and I had a comfortable stay at Villa Luna. The apartment is attractive and well supplied. There is a private patio that looks out to the Channel Islands and downtown Santa Barbara. If you enjoy taking walks there are plenty of opportunities. We will definitely stay here again.wolfgang was a friendly, helpful and gregarious host.

We loved our stay at Villa Luna !

  • 5 of 5

This property is amazing, beautiful views and garden area. We were only there for a few days and didn't get as much time as we would have liked to just hang out at this property. The apartment was perfect, everything you would need, spacious, clean and comfortable. Location is great with easy access to downtown. Very much looking forward to returning one day soon!! Highly recommended !
