Welcome to our bright & sunny 1 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.
