Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Michael first came to Santa Barbara to attend UCSB and has never left since. Michael purchased this location in 2011 and because of its prime location has decided to turn the home into a vacation rental so others could enjoy the property and this beautiful city!

Why the Owner Chose West Beach:
When I first saw this property I knew I was going to purchase the home because of the location and how beautiful and historic the cottage is. Finding a home for sale that is blocks from Paseo Nuevo Shopping Mall and State Street is very rare; making this investment that more obvious!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Unique benefits is that you can park your car on arrival and walk around the rest of your vacation. Conveniently located in the 'heart' of downtown SB and very close to multiple beaches and the pier and much more. We also have discounts at local businesses so for example, if you like to surf or would like to learn how to surf we can get you a discount at a local business. All you have to do is ask me what discounts you will receive by simply just staying at The SB Cottages.
