West Beach apartment description

An ideal location, no need for a car. We are only 1.5 blocks from West Beach, State Street, Stearns Wharf, Cabrillo Boulevard, and the Amtrak Train Station. Hop the Electric Shuttle at the Wharf and explore the waterfront and downtown State Street for shopping and dining.

We are a scenic five minute walk to the Yacht Harbor for boating, kayaking, fishing, and dining. This is a lovely spot to enjoy a meal or cocktails while taking in beautiful views of the harbor and the Santa Barbara 'Riviera' mountain scape. Visit us for our annual Harbor & Seafood Festival. Also within walking distance to Santa Barbara's Funk Zone, a sub-culture of artisan shops, hip eateries, nook wine tasting rooms and award-winning microbreweries.

Come enjoy year-round music festivals, wine and food festivals, art shows, and cultural celebrations. We are also a very active community with many sporting events throughout the year. We are close to the start of the Santa Barbara Triathlon.

Santa Barbara is one of Old California's most charming and romantic cities which boasts Mediterranean climate, miles of beaches, palm tree lined streets and beautiful Spanish architecture. If this is your first trip to Santa Barbara, 'The American Riviera', it certainly will not be your last!

West Beach Retreat is a lower, single-level unit of a lovely triplex. No smoking allowed. Note for those with pet allergies: No pets allowed so we are free of those types of allergens.
