West Beach house description

Completely renovated in 2008 and newly furnished, this unique two-level unit is part of a historic triplex in the desirable West Beach area. Your doorway is just 1-1/2-blocks from the sands and volleyball courts on West Beach near Stearn’s Wharf, and easy walking distance to downtown State St. shops and restaurants. Also very close is the Amtrak station; no need for a car at all if arriving by train!

**A second unit in triplex has recently been refurbished for vacation rental, too. See vrbo #395242

The main-floor Living Room has a top-quality queen pull-out sofabed by AU for additional quests, and a 32' flat-screen HD-TV with HD-DirecTV and DVD-player. The small galley kitchen has a full fridge and stove/oven with granite counters, and is outfitted with microwave, coffee-maker, NutriBullet blender, toaster and cookware/dishware. French-doors off the living area lead to a spacious, private outdoor deck area beside Mission Creek with patio table/chairs. Lots of birdlife.

Upstairs the sunny bedroom has a plush-top queen-size bed with down duvet & pillows, top-quality large dresser, desk and vanity, with whirlpool tub and shower in a white-tiled bathroom. Exotic walnut floors extend throughout. WiFi internet coverage is free.

Bicycle(s) are available for shared use. Laundry facilities are on-site. Non-smokers only please.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2007

                  About the owner: We are new residents of Santa Barbara, having recently moved from the Sacramento area and Canada before that. We had occupied the front main unit of this beautiful tri-plex by the beach until late-2013, and we oversee the property ourselves, including a unique rooftop aeroponic garden. Health-conscious and fitness oriented, our family enjoys beach volleyball, bicycling and running right here in West Beach with its nearby amenities.

                  Why the Owner Chose West Beach:
                  West Beach is THE place to stay in SB for both beach and downtown access. Very few properties become available here.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The historic building and charming unit are unique in SB. The privacy offered by the backyard enclosed patio by Mission Creek is special. The rooftop Tower Garden and patio are open to guests upon request or during set hours.
