Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: I am a chiropractor and practiced 16 years. During the time I had my chiropractic office I began to purchase Santa Barbara real estate and began my experience with rental properties. I now manage my rentals and my vacation rentals and have done so for 20+ years!!

Why the Owner Chose Downtown:
Originally I bought the Villa as a fixer in 2000. I upgraded and fixed the Villa and It has been a full time rental for a number of years. I have currently decided to create a new vacation rental with the Villa. I have found that there is a demand for large houses for guests with extended family!

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
This property is unique because it is right downtown Santa Barbara and walking distance to everything! It is also unique because it has 6 bedrooms!
