About Us

Eye of the Day first opened in 1995 in the Santa Ynez Valley when Brent and Suzi Freitas began selling used oak wine barrel planters supplied by the growing wine industry. They opened a small retail shop and began adding other garden décor items including fountains, tables and benches, statuary and garden gift items. Their interest in finding the highest quality products for their customers led them to Europe where they began to build relationships with some of the leading manufacturers of terra cotta pottery.

Today,  Eye of the Day Garden Design Center is the leading purveyor of European garden furnishings including Italian terracotta pottery, French planters, traditional Greek pottery and one-of-a-kind antique pieces for the garden. The Santa Barbara showroom features a wide selection of merchandise, providing the opportunity to choose pieces from around the world to create a perfectly unique garden. Whether using aged garden pottery from Greece, Italy or Spain or new pottery from Europe or the U.S., Eye of the Day can help you bring paradise home.

My husband and I have just had 3 nights at Castro House ... having stumbled on this piece of paradise for the last part of our 4 week trip around the US ... a great way to finish! The recently renovated Castro House has been masterfully and tastefully done. The fittings, appliances and colour scheme are so complimentary and relaxing. Our days have been filled with beach walks, bicycle rides, SUP boarding, local coffees, beers and eateries ... all in walking distance from the Castro House. Jess was amazingly generous and hospitable .. wine and chocolates on arrival ... and a late check-out to co-incide with our departing flight from LA. You are a true gem Jess and I hope to be back!!
