This recently updated 2 bedroom, 1 bath with vaulted ceilings and wood floors, circa 1938, offers charm and comfort. The kitchen has been beautifully renovated with granite & stainless appliances, and is open to a bar where guests can relax and pour wine for the chef. The kitchen, dining, and living room are all open to each other, creating an inviting space for hanging out and relaxing. There is a dining table which seats 4-6 (2 extra chairs available if needed), a couch and loveseat, and a 60' flat screen which is visible from the couches as well as from the kitchen and bar. There is an outdoor patio which is very private. We call this the Hideaway because it is off the street down a narrow driveway, and so it is very peaceful and quiet, yet it is only moments away from the hustle and bustle of downtown. Both bedrooms have queen beds with beautiful linens and down comforters, and plenty of closet space. One bedroom has a dresser. There is one bathroom with a tub/shower which has also been nicely updated. If you are looking for a very clean and comfortable place to be your home base while you explore all Santa Barbara has to offer, this is the place! If you are coming for a festival, parade, special event, or just to enjoy the sights and restaurants, this location can't be beat. Enjoy our renowned Farmer's Market on State Street on Tuesday afternoons, full of local organic veggies and fruits and lovely flowers. A few blocks down is the newly constructed Santa Barbara Public Market, which offers everything one can imagine in the way of handcrafted, regionally sourced food and wine. Restaurants abound: French, Mexican, Japanese, Greek, California cuisine, Italian, Vietnamese...just to mention a few, plus bars, wine tasting shops, breweries, coffee houses, bakeries, chocolatiers and more! A quick ride on the Santa Barbara Trolley will take you down to the pier, to East and West beaches, Los Banos swimming pool, and the Harbor, where you can hop on a boat for a whale watching adventure, rent kayaks and paddle boards, bikes, and more! If you are looking to get the most out of your stay in Santa Barbara on foot, then this is the place for you.

Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: I am a Santa Barbara native, born and raised in this incredible place. I grew up on these beaches, have explored our front country hiking trails, and feel intimately connected with the ocean and mountains here. Several times a week I walk to the Mission and rose garden, and enjoy sunset strolls on Hendry's beach. I love going to all our festivals and parades! There is something for everyone here! The restaurants are amazing, from the little 'hole in the wall' places to the fancy well-known Zagat-rated establishments. I feel blessed to live where the weather is so pleasant and the flowers are always in bloom. The plants here are lush and amazing and because of our weather we enjoy Farmer's Markets almost everyday of the week year round!!! The main thing about me is I am so happy to live here and I love to share my passion for Santa Barbara!
Why the Owner Chose Downtown: Location, location, location. The perfect place to stay starts with a wonderful home base in the midst of all Santa Barbara has to offer, and the comforts you need to truly relax. This Hideaway is very clean and has everything a guest would want to feel right at home.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Lock and go! You won't need a car if you stay here. This is an urban property, in the heart of Santa Barbara, yet very quiet and peaceful.
