Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: I moved to Santa Barbara 25 years ago after spending a mere four day vacation here. I now, and have for the last 20 years, sell real estate and manage my own rentals. All are long term, except for Caza de Coco which I converted to a vacation rental recently. It is too cute and located in an A+++location

Why the Owner Chose Downtown:
This property was converted to a vacation rental because of the location. It sits in the heart of downtown Santa Barbara. Everything is steps away, yet it fronts on one of the coolest streets in Santa Barbara. The house was built in the early 1900s so it is extremely charming with very large windows and beautiful natural light. There are fenced yards and viewing porches both front and back. It is an oasis, a secret spot, a hold-out, a gem peaking out of a downtown corridor. You won't want to leave Santa Barbara and ESPECIALLY Caza de Coco.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The proximity of Caza de Coco to everything that is Santa Barbara is A+. You can walk for an evening at the theatre, stroll for a little live music and wine tasting, shop till you drop, partake in two weekly Farmer's Markets steps away, or dine from coffee, breakfast, to 5* restaurants. The lovingly chosen eclectic decor, friendly floor plan, and sun filled room will warm your heart. Caza de Coco will wrap its arms around you and make you feel special and welcome in her fair city.
