Property description

City living at its best. The romance and charm of the Mediterranean, set on one of Santa Barbara's quaintest streets, in the most desirable part of town. An easy stroll to sidewalk coffee shops and cafes. The historic Mission is only 4 blocks away. Less than a mile to the heart of the shopping, dining, theater, and historic area. Two miles to East Beach - one of top 10 beaches in United States.

This Mediterranean style home is close enough to enjoy easy access to the downtown, but also provides a quiet respite after a busy day. Totally renovated and elegantly furnished throughout. The home is filled with antique elements, carousel animals, and wonderful details not found in typical rental homes.

The bright, new, hand crafted country kitchen is a gourmet's delight, with Viking range, granite counters and French sink. The Italian floor tiles flow through the large dining room, out the French doors to the secluded and quiet courtyard. The two fountains, canvas umbrellas, with dining facilities for 8-10, make for enchanting entertaining. Garden lights and portable gas heater extend the cooler evenings.

The second floor master suite with king sized bed, has an adjoining marble tiled bath with extra large shower. The suite's private, 20 foot covered balcony is ideal for reading or relaxing.

The generous first floor bedrooms contain a queen sized and two single beds respectively. A bath with shower and tub is between these bedrooms.

Beach chairs and beach towels, as well as a boogie board, are included.

Comments from past renters:

'In the 13 years of vacation rentals in Santa Barbara, this home is the best.' Minneapolis, MN

'Thanks for letting us stay in your beautiful home...wish we could live here.' Chicago, IL

Santa Barbara is unique. Almost everything, from world class shopping and dining, to performances and historic attractions, are within walking distance or a short shuttle ride. There are typically more activities to explore on a weekend than you can take in.

The city is noted for its abundance of restaurants - highest per capita ratio in the country (just ahead of NYC and San Francisco). The Lobero Theater, Civic Light Opera, S.B. Bowl, Arlington Theater, UCSB Arts & Lecture Series, and The Music Academy of the West, are unique in supplying a constantly changing array of famous entertainment - truely unusual in a city of this size.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1993

About the owner: We've been renting our totally remodeled Santa Barbara home through VRBO since 2001. It has given us a chance to travel the world. We still have new countries to visit and out of the way places to explore. We've walked 500 miles in England, spent 2 months in India(and stayed healthy), and traveled throughout SE Asia. Our renters always comment on our great location and enjoyable house with great amenities. They are never disappointed, hate to leave, and of course, want to move to Santa Barbara!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Santa Barbara is a city of micro climates. Our location does not suffer the coastal fog of some other locations around town and of course we enjoy an abundance of sunny days. We are able to walk to State St., the main shopping, dining, movie, coffee house area of Santa Barbara as well. The Santa Barbara Mission is also a short walk away as is the beautiful citizen maintained public rose garden.
