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.
