About the property

Beautiful Cottage in Peaceful Neighborhood, w/Garage and Gated Garden

Architectural details and carefully hand picked furnishings make this home both elegant and utterly comfortable at the same time. On the main floor guests will find one bedroom (full size bed and twin trundle), bath with shower, kitchen, dining room, living room and mini-office.

A gated yard with BBQ and outdoor dining is steps from the living room and provides a private and quiet space for outdoor dining, reading or visiting with friends and family.

The cozy mini office is the perfect spot for searching the web to find a great Santa Barbara restaurant, check emails or write a post card to a loved one.

On the second floor, the master suite is both expansive and peaceful. The en-suite bath has a jetted tub, separate shower and double sinks. The master suite also includes a walk-in closet that is ample enough for storage or to act as a mini bedroom for a child or young adult using the provided twin foam floor bed and linens (sheets, pillow, comforter).

Guests walk just three and a half blocks to State Street, The Arlington Theater, Granada Theater, Paseo Nuevo shops, hair and body spas, dining, Museums and more. Public transportation is just three blocks away to take you anywhere in the tri-cities area (Goleta, Carpenteria, Montecito or numerous Santa Barbara destinations).

A two car garage along with a third uncovered parking spot allow guests to bring up to three vehicles, a boat or small RV.

The kitchen is skillfully stocked with not just the basics but also special items such as a muffin tin, bread pan, salad spinner and veggie steamer. Guests who love to cook will be pleasantly surprised.

Included in the kitchen are: coffee maker, toaster and blender.

For families with young children, this home includes standard a pack-n-play crib (w/sheet) chair-mounted high chair and umbrella stroller.

lovely house, near Downtown SB

  • 4 of 5

The house is in a quiet location a few blocks from downtown SB, which is an easy walk. The house is just off the 101 so very accessible - although you not aware of the road during your stay. The beach is a bit further away for the house but only a few minutes in the car (or walk of approx. 8-10 blocks) and there is plenty of parking in SB - much free for first 90 minutes and not expensive thereafter.

Very nice open plan living and kitchen area with a private garden with bbq, table and chairs - quite a sun trap.

The upstairs master bedroom is particularly large and spacious with an ensuite.

Good wifi connection - important as we had 2 teenagers with us!

The only negative was the deposit of $750 - which seems high compared to other properties we booked through other agencies for our trip.

The house was great. Essential items were missing.

  • 3 of 5

We loved the house and beds were very comfortable. We were not happy with the following : there were 2 washcloths upstairs and 2 downstairs. There should have been more washcloths. There was 1 tiny bar of soap for the whole house. There were NO tissues. There was NO dishwasher soap. There was only 1 extra trash bag for the 2 trash cans in the kitchen. There should have been a few more. It seemed to us that this lovely elegant home was all good but the necessities were very stingy. We paid a good amount of money per night and these things made our stay way less than perfect. Annoying really. There also was only 1 wine glass. Interesting.

Owner's Response: Hi Susan Cook and Family, Thanks very much for staying with us. We appreciate your business. We're sorry to hear you weren't able to find the items you needed in the house. We have an upper cabinet in the downstairs bath with the items above - except facial tissues, which we don't provide. It won't help now, but please know that we're available 24/7 via text, email and telephone for any questions or needs. It's always our pleasure to assist when a guest needs something!

We absolutely love the little touches that make it feel like home

We had a lovely stay! Perfect for two couples or a family with an infant or non-toddler aged children.

Can’t wait to go back. So convenient to downtown and feels like home. Very clean and well appointed.

Adorable, Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a month and loved that the house is only three blocks from state street. The car sat in the garage the entire trip - except when we went up to Los Olivos for wine tasting and a couple trips to the grocery store. Beds really comfortable, great lay-out for the kids and just a pleasure all around!
