About This Center
La Casa de Maria is a beloved sanctuary for heart, mind, and spirit, nestled gently between mountain and sea. Come experience 26 acres that the New York Times has proclaimed as “pure splendor.” La Casa is located in Santa Barbara, just 90 miles north of Los Angeles. We offer full-service retreat and conference packages for groups and individuals attending our La Casa programs. La Casa provides excellent retreat and conference facilities to spiritual communities and non-profit organizations, sponsored retreats and programs open to all, serene guest accommodations, well-appointed meeting rooms, a full-service dining room, and gardens with outside gathering places. Whether you are experiencing La Casa de Maria for the first time, or returning for a conference or retreat, you will find rest, renewal, a connection to your soul, and deeper purpose.
