Need a break? Beautiful Santa Barbara, California, could be the answer!
Come stay in this luxurious furnished Mediterranean-style second story casita (or guest studio) in Santa Barbara. The casita includes such details as gorgeous reclaimed Canadian Douglas Fir wood floors, French doors, and custom maple kitchen cabinets with granite tile countertops.
At 450 square feet inside, it offers a spacious comfortable feeling and tons of amenities. There are windows all around with amazing views of the City and mountains, or enjoy the views on your own generous balcony. You can also wander through the garden to rest and relax, or perhaps enjoy a picnic, in the sunny back yard! And the casita is conveniently located approximately one mile from downtown or two from the beach, Stearns Wharf and the Harbor.
The casita encompasses the entire 2nd story of a free-standing garage at the back of a 1/4-acre property -- no shared walls, no living spaces above or below! This is a perfect home away from home for business and vacation!
