East Beach cottage description

Seashore Cottage is a newly remodeled and beautifully maintained beach house in one of the best locations in Santa Barbara. The circa 1940 art nouveau style has been carefully restored to its original charm while offering the comforts of first class accommodations. It is one block to Santa Barbara's East Beach, and just around the corner from the world renowned Santa Barbara Zoo. It is a short walk to the Fess Parker Hotel, the Funk Zone, State Street and Stearns Wharf, and Montecito. It is also very close to a scheduled stop on Santa Barbara's Electric Bus Route that takes you to the wharf and downtown (25 cents, includes one transfer!).

The floor plan includes three bedrooms: two bedrooms with queen beds and one bedroom with a bunk bed (single on top and double on bottom). There are two sleeper sofas which convert to queen beds. The house is equipped with new appliances, a private washer and dryer, good quality linens and bedding, and attractive furnishings. The cottage is filled with light, decorated in a beach motif and welcomes you to relax, kick your shoes off and make yourself at home.

The property offers a lushly landscaped private rear area, which is very rare for beach properties and includes a jacuzzi, a vine-draped pergola for shady lounging next to a gurgling fountain, and a BBQ conveniently located next to the larger of two kitchens in the cottage. Play ping pong while the kids make chalk drawings on the pavement. Whether traveling solo, with friends, or with small children, Seashore Cottage will insure a wonderful time in Santa Barbara.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2009

              About the owner: We have lived in Santa Barbara for over 30 years. My husband is a well-known and popular ophthalmologist and I am a retired attorney. We have raised three children in Santa Barbara and now that they are all off doing their own thing, I have embarked on a new career owning and operating my two vacation rentals (the other one is near the Biltmore Hotel in Montecito - VRBO #382419.) Although we have traveled all over the globe, we are always so glad to come home to this magical place. We think you'll feel the same! I manage my vacation rentals with the same care that I have devoted to our own home on the Riviera, and they are both impeccably maintained. We have enjoyed staying in properties like ours that offer the comforts of a first class hotel, with a lot more space and convenience. Santa Barbara offers the most fabulous lifestyle, and Seashore Cottage will give you the opportunity to 'live like a local.' Welcome to paradise!

              Why the Owner Chose East Beach:
              Location, location, location! A short block to Santa Barbara's East beach, walking distance to downtown Santa Barbara, the Santa Barbara Zoo, and Montecito. A great market on the corner, Trader Joe's two blocks away. Easy freeway access. Three hotel spas, bike rentals, visitor information all within walking distance. This is the place to be.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              Seashore Cottage is a 1940's era art nouveau style single story cottage that has been lovingly and painstakingly restored and renovated to its original charm. We have salvaged all original hardware and there are hardwood floors in the bedrooms and living rooms, slate floors in the kitchens and carrera marble in the bathrooms. Rare for the area, Seashore Cottage features a beautifully landscaped and fully enclosed rear yard with an indoor/outdoor playroom which is wonderful for small children. Every interior surface has been re-finished, without sacrificing the unique appeal of an older home. The layout of this property is great for two families or multi-generation extended families with plenty of separation for the youngsters to play while the adults relax. The primary kitchen is adjacent to the backyard and the BBQ, and there is a secondary 'entertainment/wet bar' kitchen in the front living room area.
