We are 1 block to our beautiful East Beach. East Beach has a locals favorite for breakfast, called 'East Beach Grill' This is nothing fancy and we prefer their breakfast over lunch menu. Pete's coffee, simple breakfast menu but right on the beach and thats the best part. The Santa Barbara Zoo is within walking distance and we are next to Dwight Murphy Park if you have children and they love baseball,soccer, par course etc... The Hyatt is a hop,skip and jump and they have a cozy bar if you want to walk and have a drink and appetizer in a nice setting. You can walk on the beach to the 'World Famous' spa and dining room at the Biltmore Hotel in Montiecto. The Sunday morning brunch is stunning and the Thursday night Seafood Buffet is so fresh and clean. Reservations suggested. The SB bird refuge is within walking distance and the beauty of our location is that it is somewhat out of the craziness of state street. We are about a 20-30 minute walk to state street (in less if your a power walker) or you can take the little electric bus for .50 and return for .50.
Great Location,great accommodation,great town!!
About the owner: Work: Paul is in Yacht Sales and Jane is a Personal Banker About: Paul and I have been living in New Zealand for the last 9 years. We were both in the hospitality industry and know how to meet your high expectations. We love fly fishing,cycling and family. We have relocated to Santa Barbara and have created a beautiful,peaceful,unique space for you to enjoy your time in the area. We can't wait to make you feel comfortable and invite you to enjoy all Santa Barbara has to offer.
Why the Owner Chose East Beach:
We were originally from California. After making a huge international move to New Zealand for 9 years we knew when we returned we wanted to land in Santa Barbara. The area offers everything we love to do. Paul is a paraglider and we love cycling and family. Our real passion is fly fishing which we can't get enough of.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We chose this property because we loved the unique floor plan. The kitchen and bathroom are large and the bedroom is so romantic and roomy. The wow factor from the minute we walked in made us fall in love with our home. Not to mention the 1 block walk to beautiful East Beach where dolphins cruise through the water with grace and beauty. We never want to leave this place.
