Walking to town, only one block away. Great dining, shopping, hike trails are very close. We provide bicycles to cruise around town along with beach chairs and umbrellas to enjoy at the beach. We are in a residentail/commerical area that is tucked away and quiet. Amazing patio with nice art and plantings. Also have a fire pit for evenings outside under the stars.

Note: We are just adding a new unit, which is now ready on the same property. Please see our website below.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1991

About the owner: Caron and Doug are fabulous hosts, and details are very important to them. They have gotten nothing but rave reviews about their property and what they offer. Caron is women's accessory designer and Doug is an architect and their place emits both of their love and talents.

Why the Owner Chose Downtown:
Best location to downtown and the beach. It's really in the heartland of active part of Santa Barbara that includes theatre, great dining, great museums and shopping. You really don't need a car if you stay at this location. Very safe neighborhood and quiet.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We upgraded the front unit in 2012 adding another unit to our location, which is great if 2 couples or 2 family groups want to be close but not in the same space. Front unit has amazing patio, middle unit has great garden area to hang in, read and enjoy an amazing succulent garden with water features and cozy furniture. Each unit have their own VRBO number. This place is impeccably clean; the level of standards and attention to special details that are kept by the owners makes this place so special.
