The Secret to the Secret Getaway is its location, quality and price. Why stay in the nicest hotel suite in town, when you can have much more, for significantly less money?
We are located two blocks from the Beach, Stearns Wharf, Public Pool, Harbor, world-class dining, and downtown shops, including our own local Farmers market. Leave your car and parking worries behind. We even offer RARE off street reserved parking.
Within blocks are a European deli and market, bakery and sandwich shop, three wineries and a grocery store leaving little need to leave the neighborhood. In addition there are bike rentals, Segway rentals, peddle surrey rentals, a skate park, the Chase Palm Park with a merry-go-round and the site of a craft fair each Sunday that lines the beach boardwalk. The Santa Barbara Zoo and the Bird Sanctuary are an easy mile and half walk. If you are traveling to Santa Barbara by train the Secret Getaway is two blocks from the train station and there is a car rental agency two blocks away in case you want to explore the Santa Ynez Valley wine country. If you are tired of walking, all of these attractions can be reached by a local 25 cents-a-ride shuttle bus that runs up State Street and along the ocean front from the harbor to the zoo.
The Secret Getaway is new and resides in a historical turn of the century building that retains the charm of the day’s bygone. It has been lovingly restored to reflect the true authentic Santa Barbara style. The beautiful limestone floors, faux painting and ten feet ceilings all give it a romantic and European feeling.
The bright kitchen is fully equipped, including spices, with granite counter tops, all appliances and your own washer and dryer.
The bathroom is immaculate with custom stone work throughout, a built in Jacuzzi tub, separate large walk- in shower and Santa Barbara style cabinets with matching granite.
The living room has a Waterford fireplace, comfortable couch (queen sleeper), 42' HDTV which replaced the smaller one in the picture, DVD and stereo. Complimentary wireless internet access is also available for your convenience. The bedroom offers a king-size feather top bed with luxury linens.
The bedroom and kitchen each have eight foot glass doors that lead to the your own veranda where you can enjoy the California sun, complete with Bistro set, potted flowers and gas grill.
For your convenience we also offer private reserved parking and a washer and dryer in the Secret Getaway. Everything you need to complete your stay.
Also a helpful hint when comparing: We are not on a commercial thorough fare or next to the highway or railroad tracks. We are in a nice residential neighborhood.
