The Downtown Victorian Villa is a couples and family friendly property. Please: No Smoking, No Pets, No parties or weddings.

You will love staying at the Downtown Victorian Villa! It was built in 1905 and is full of Victorian details and charm. There is unique Victorian architecture throughout! There are many large windows and high ceilings in each room and hardwood floors in some rooms.

The Villa is so large that the 1st time I walked through it I got lost!! It is meant to accommodate large groups of up to 14 guests. Leave your car parked in the garage and walk everywhere!! There are parking spots for 4 cars: 2 in the garage and 2 on the gravel parking. You can also park cars on the long driveway, if needed.

Walk 3 blocks downtown to shops and restaurants on State Street. Walk to Paseo Nuevo shopping center just 4 blocks away! You can also walk to the gorgeous East Beach with it's Sunday market along Cabrillo Blvd. and then stroll down the pier at the end of State Street!!

As you approach the Villa, walk up the steps onto the front porch and in through the front door where you will find the Princess Suite bedroom, the living room, the kitchen, the breakfast sun porch, a full bathroom and the large elegant dining room!

The Princess Suite is on the left as you enter in through the front door. It is a large beautiful room with a Queen bed and gorgeous furnishings. It faces Bath St with a large bay window and 2 other large windows with high ceiling and hardwood floor.

Ascend the staircase to the 4 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms on the 2nd floor. The Bay room faces Bath Street with Queen sized bed. This room is large with a bay window, 2 more large windows and hardwood floor. Go down the hall to the Yellow room. This room is good sized and bright with 3 large windows. It has a queen bed and carpeted floor. The next room across the hall is the Pink room. It is darker, good sized and has 2 large windows and carpeted floor with a Queen bed. At the end of the hall you will find the Pee Wee Room. This is a small room with a small window, full sized bed, small dresser and night stand with a lamp. Perfect for 1 guest! There are 2 full bathrooms on this floor.

Take the next set of stairs up to the gorgeous Artist's Loft on the 3rd floor! This room is approx 500 sf with 2 partially separated areas. There is a queen bed in 1 area and a double bed in the other area. This room has a small living room with TV, dining room table with 4 chairs and a small refrigerator.

Downstairs again as you enter in the front door of the Villa, walk through the foyer, past the Princess Suite and enter into the bright and comfortable living room and beyond to the magical kitchen with the breakfast sun porch to the left. From the living room enter through the beautiful antique doors on the left to the incredible dining room with seating for 12 and seating for another 4 on the adjacent sun porch!

                      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 and walking distance to everything! It is also unique because it has 7 bedrooms!
