Property description

Welcome to our bright & sunny 1 king bedroom & 1 bathroom Affordable Beach Getaway. We are located 2 blocks from the Beach, Stearns Wharf, Public Pool, Harbor, world-class dining, and downtown shops, including our own local Farmers market. Leave your car and parking worries behind.

See our independent Reviews to help you decide!

Within blocks are a European deli and market, bakery and sandwich shop, three wineries and a grocery store leaving little need to leave the neighborhood. In addition there are bike rentals, Segway rentals, peddle surrey rentals, a skate park, the Chase Palm Park with a merry-go-round and the site of a craft fair each Sunday that lines the beach boardwalk. The Santa Barbara Zoo and the Bird Sanctuary are an easy mile and half walk. If you are traveling to Santa Barbara by train the Secret Getaway is two blocks from the train station and there is a car rental agency two blocks away in case you want to explore the Santa Ynez Valley wine country. If you are tired of walking, all of these attractions can be reached by a local 25 cents-a-ride shuttle bus that runs up State Street and along the ocean front from the harbor to the zoo.

Our Affordable Getaway is about 700 square feet and offers a fully equipped kitchen, bedroom with king bed, clean full bathroom with limestone throughout,a large living room with full size pull out couch, Waterford fireplace, 42' high definition TV and DVD, and sliding glass doors leading to a large private balcony complete with chaise lounges, table and chairs, gas grill and potted plants.

We are located in the best area of Santa Barbara, the Historic West Beach area, a high end residential neighborhood, not on a commercial thoroughfare or adjacent to the railroad tracks or highway.

There are 700+ vacation rentals in the 'Santa Barbara Area'. Vacation rentals pricing follow the same trend as real estate pricing - location, location. The farther out you go out of Santa Barbara, the less expensive the real estate and the better the vacation rental pricing.

We are located in the best area of Santa Barbara - the Historic West Beach Area - 2 blocks to the Beach and downtown Santa Barbara, yet not on a commercial thoroughfare, not next to the railroad tracks or not adjacent a highway. And we offer private reserved parking.

In addition to location, look at our property and compare amenities and pricing. We are unmatched.

About the owner: My husband and I own and manage each of our properties. We have pride of ownership and when you call with questions regarding the properties or any concerns you speak directly to us. Because of this attention to detail we are fortunate enought to have over 50% repeat business. We hope to host you as well.

Why the Owner Chose West Beach:
There are so many Santa Barbara properties available for rent. The number one difference between all of them are location, location, location. The closer to the beach and the closer to Santa Barbara the more expensive the real estate. We are 2 blocks to the beach and downtown, not on a commercial thorough fare, not next to the highway or railroad track and not a bus ride or car ride away from downtown. We combine our location with the best pricing and the best amenities. Finally, we are immaculately clean
