Hello! We want to give Portland a 3 month test drive. We have a beautiful and private home in Montecito (arguably the best neighborhood) in Santa Barbara that is walking distance to the beach and the Biltmore Hotel. We are young seniors who love life (great wine and food). We have a very sweet 8 year old Golden/Spaniel and are accustomed to all that that requires. We love the NW but are pretty flexible. We'd like a neighborhood where you can walk to parks and restaurants. If that sound like something you might wish to explore, let us know!
