About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Due to the ban on short term vacation rentals I am no longer able to rent for less than a 30 day contract. However, my 30 day rate is probably a better deal than a 14 night rate at local hotels. Located half a block off State Street in the historic San Roque neighborhood, this remodeled home is the perfect retreat destination for a relaxing visit to Santa Barbara. Prior to listing with VRBO the house was available by request only [see comments].

Visit Stearns Wharf and Santa Barbara's famous beaches, Paseo Nuevo, El Paseo and downtown shopping and dining, the County Bowl, Lobrero Theatre, various movie theatres, The Santa Barbara Art Museum, the courthouse complex, multiple city parks and the Botanical Garden. Walking distance to the Mission, the Natural History Museum and the City Rose Garden.

Additional Amenities within walking distance include: Trader Joe's (organic grocery store); Gelson's Market (gourmet groceries with a great deli/salad bar); Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf (great outdoor fire-pit plaza for sitting); Harry's Plaza Café (historic eatery and watering hole, family friendly); CVS; Plus many small restaurants and shops. We are also walking distance [8 blocks] to the Santa Barbara Trolley [sbtrolley] and MTD bus picks up around the corner.

Details: wood floors throughout, 2 queen size beds in each of the 2 bedrooms, 2 twin beds in 3rd bedroom [all linens provided], granite countertops in kitchen, custom oak kitchen cabinets. Great backyard for entertaining. Apologies, this house is not wheelchair accessible [no ramp access].

Great location, beautiful garden. Well maintained house with nice upgrades.

  • 5 of 5

If you want to feel like a local this is a great place to stay. Lots to walk to, restaurants, stores and entertainment all close by. Muni SB Golf Course less than a mile away. Just off State Street right on bus route. Touristy part of State is 20 blocks south, beach is just 30 blocks away. House is very well taken care of and local owner were very helpful. Upgraded bath with separate tub and shower. Kitchen also has upgrades like granite countertops and has a great view of the beautiful garden. We loved our stay.

convenient location and spacious

This is our second stay here, so it was nice that everything was familiar. The best thing about the house is the location. So many things are within walking distance. Also we like the private backyard where we took sunbaths in January.

Exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Hacienda San Roque. The house is bright and very clean. The backyard is spacious and serene. The neighborhood is quiet and within walking distance to coffee shops and restaurants. Any questions I had Mandy was very quick in responding. This was our first stay at a VRBO property. It was a hundred times better to come back after a long day of activities to nice house rather than a cramped hotel room. Very impressed with how well the house is stocked with everyday things you obviously wouldn’t have at a hotel. Thank you Mandy

Highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

Loved Mandy's place a lot! We stayed for 2 weeks and never regret to rent the house.

Just few positive points - very family friendly, great location - close to the park, easy highway access; bus stop, grocery shopping and family friendly restaurants walking distance. Nice kitchen, clean and cozy rooms, well maintained backyard. And a lot of nice little things that are hard to list, but that create that pleasant feeling to be welcomed.

Thank you, Mandy!
