Property description

Everything you need and nothing you don’t. Perched above the city of Santa Barbara, looking out past the red tiled roofs, to the boats in the harbor and the islands beyond.

For Guest who stay one Month or longer we have a reduced price, contact us for your personalized monthly rate. Reservations more than 6 Months in advance receive special payment terms. We keep our Calendar up to date and there is no need to ask if the Apartment is available if it shows so in our Calendar.

The Apt. is a short walk to the Mission, Rose gardens, Botanical Gardens, Natural History Museum and Riviera Theatre. Also, don’t miss Alice’s garden (read the book in the Apt.), Lotus Land (must make reservations ahead), the many hikes (book in Apt.), Seal Sanctuary (checking birthing months), walking along the Shoreline Park (watching the surfers, sea lions, & whales), Brophy Bros. (a locals hangout) & the Fish Market at the Marina (freshest fish in town), Downtown Farmer’s Market (Tues. eve. & Sat. morning) the Courthouse and Arlington Theatre.

A day-out’s bounty- local spotted prawn, farmers market finds, and local pinot. Take it back to the gourmet kitchen, pop the cork and cook up something good while looking out through the French doors to see if you can retrace your steps from the day.

You’ll want to rise early to see the magnificent sunrise and be home in the evening to enjoy the sunset with a glass of wine. Break bread at the yacht-style booth that has the best seat in the house- or any house for that matter- and let the nautical scene unfold before you. Cheers!

One of four restored and upgraded units in a Craftsman style building circa 1915, this apartment has a sophisticated yet comfortable feel. Located on the second floor, the sun-drenched unit looks south out across the city and ocean and west toward the Mission. From the kitchen French doors lead to panoramic ocean and city views. A built-in booth seats six for dinner and provides a spot for entertaining or sitting down with a cup of tea and a book. Features include all new cabinetry, honed granite counter-tops, stainless steel appliances, and butcher block topped island. Custom tile work surrounds the new shower/bath tub in the good sized bathroom. Dual pocket doors and an interior window give the bedroom an open feel. Custom millwork adds to the historical feel of the space.

The unit has its own private laundry/storage room and weekly maid service is available upon request. The convenient location is around the corner from the historic Riviera Theater, 0.5 miles to the Santa Barbara Mission, across the street from Orput park and near public transportation and within walking distance to downtown.
