Lower Riviera cottage description

CASA DEI NONNI-(Our grandparents' cottage)

This charming 1920's original Santa Barbara cottage has been in the same family for over 80 years and for the first time is open to the discerning public to experience Santa Barbara of yesteryear.

This inviting and peaceful cottage has been completely renovated and is located on Santa Barbara's famous Riviera. It is walking distance to downtown, the Santa Barbara County Bowl and biking distance to the beach 9 blocks away.

Enjoy your morning cappuccino on the brand new front garden deck overlooking downtown Santa Barbara and the blue Pacific or relax in the back garden gazebo surrounded by a spectacular 100 year old climbing heirloom rose. Cut stone steps, planters and ancient Santa Barbara sandstone walls line brick pathways through a stucco archway to the old world garden.

Every square inch of this charming casa has been restored with great respect for historic detail.

The owners are trilingual (English, Spanish and Italian) third generation Santa Barbarans and will happily assist you to make your stay in Santa Barbara as enchanting as their property.

                        This home was just CHARMING and perfect for our girls weekend! The home was all of the history, detail and charm you would want from Santa Barbara, with all of the modern amenities as well. There was Wi-Fi, a flat screen with a DVD player, and convenient access to anywhere we wanted to go. They even left a book full of helpful information should we need anything at all. The home was extremely clean and had all the appliances we would possibly need (coffee maker, iron, toaster, kitchen supplies, etc). I will definitely be staying again, and hope to stay longer next time! Thank you again SO MUCH for hosting us!

                        The house was perfect for us. It's adorable and charming and very comfortable. The backyard is awesome and we also loved the front patio area. The house had everything we needed and more.

                        My stay here was extremely enjoyable. My favorite part of the cottage is the backyard and the overall attention to detail that the owner has put into this house. The location is perfect as it is a quiet neighborhood and a short drive to the beach or downtown for shopping and dining. The experience from the time of booking to the check out went smoothly and we had a great time in Santa Barbara.

                        Recommended for: Families with teenagers, girls getaway, families with young children, sightseeing, romantic getaway, tourists without a car.
