Property description

A sweet and comfortable little guest house w/ a full kitchen and garden on our half acre in a quiet cul-de-sac. Located above the SB Mission in Mission Canyon. You hear more birds than traffic--yet you're only 10 minutes from the heart of downtown...

Well behaved dogs are always welcome, but we really must know about your pet before we confirm your booking. Please, please, please don't bring your dog(s) without telling us in advance.

The Space:
The cottage has a quiet & peaceful bedroom that sleeps 2 in a comfy new queen sized bed, a small (see picture) private bath with shower, and a small living room. There is a full kitchen for your exclusive use that is equipped with full sized stove/oven, microwave, full sized fridge, small appliances, place settings and all that you might need to prepare and serve meals. Living and dining spaces are cozy, clean and comfortable. We've also just installed a jacuzzi/hot tub next to the cottage, and guests have access anytime.

There is also a queen air-bed that can be easily set up in the living room for children or extra guests. The cottage is ideal for a couple, and fine for parents with children, but it will be snug for 3 or 4 adults. However, it 'can' work for travelers in a pinch and it's quite comfortable for families with small children.

There's lots of outdoor space on our property and we are in a quiet, very walkable neighborhood. Behind the cottage our guests have a private, secluded garden with native plants and succulents, and a small dining area with a Weber grill if you'd like to cook outdoors.

We're a short walk to the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden or to the Tunnel & 7 Falls trail heads and many miles of scenic hiking or biking. Being a bit up the canyon, we're usually above the coastal fog, and we're often clear and sunny on mornings when much of Santa Barbara is still cool and grey.

It's just a few minutes drive to Mission Santa Barbara, the Natural History Museum and downtown Santa Barbara with sightseeing, restaurants, tasting rooms, shopping, theaters, parks and beaches.

The way the cottage and it's off-street parking are situated at the back of our property you'll be able also come and go with complete privacy day or night. However, we also like meeting new people and interacting with our guests and are happy to share whatever local knowledge we have or be of any help we can throughout your stay.

Off street parking & high speed WiFi included.
We love well behaved dogs.
Non-smoking only please.

Guest Access:
There is a private garden behind the cottage for the tenants exclusive use, and access to an outdoor hot tub/spa next to the cottage that is shared with the main house.

Interaction with Guests:
We love to meet new people and share whatever we know of Santa Barbara with them, but we also know how wonderful privacy can be. We're always glad to be of help, but your time here is all your own...

The Neighborhood:
We live in a quiet neighborhood in the lower foothills above Mission Canyon. There's not much traffic so it's a great area for evening strolls or dog walking. We're about a 5 minute walk to the gorgeous Santa Barbara Botanic Garden, and about a mile from the 7 Falls/Tunnel trailhead which brings you into to the extensive network of hiking and biking trails in the National Forest above us.

Getting around:
Since we're up in the foothills a bit you'll need a car (or a bike and strong legs) to get around while you're here. The nearest city bus is over a mile away.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: We love hiking, biking, gardening, animals, food, wine, travel and the beach. Have been lucky to live in this wonderful community for 20 years and happy to share everything about it with our guests.

Why the Owner Chose Mission Canyon:
We looked for a year for a house we could agree easy. Until we saw a dilapidated 1940's 2 bedroom, 1 bath nestled under the most spectacular 80 foot Italian Stone Pine in all of Santa Barbara. We undertook a very major remodel of the home and somehow our marriage survived it. We've been here for 15 years. Sadly the 65 year old Stone Pine is gone now, the ocean view is much better, but we miss it...

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The quietist part of Santa Barbara we've ever found. No streetlights, no sidewalks, yet we're only 10 minutes from the heart of Santa Barbara's downtown. Up in the hills above the coastal fog and close to miles of fabulous hiking trails and 180 degree views of the coast.
