West Side house description

Come, relax and be our guests at this lovely vacation home in the heart of Santa Barbara and all the amenities the 'American Riviera' has to offer. Located in a quiet residential area, this two-story updated 1925 California Craftsman style home is cozy and comfortable, a perfect spot for you to getaway, recuperate or enjoy a family vacation. It has 3 bedrooms each with new queen size plush beds and a full size futon couch in the living room, so it can sleep 6+ people comfortably.

Tastefully furnished with mission style furniture and antiques, the upstairs master suite features a romantic gas fireplace, jacuzzi, and private balcony. The country kitchen comes with a dishwasher and gas range with dishes, glasses, and cooking utensils, coffee maker, microwave and all you need to prepare meals, if you don't feel like going out to one of the many excellent restaurants downtown.

There is a private outdoor hot tub on the deck, a stone patio with BBQ, and a large yard where you can enjoy seasonal fruit. Bike or take the nearby public transit into town or to the beach. This is an ideal vacation or short term rental.
