Why Melanie Cava chose West Beach

There are so many Santa Barbara properties available for rent. The number one difference between all of them are location, location, location. The closer to the beach and the closer to Santa Barbara the more expensive the real estate. We are 2 blocks to the beach and downtown, not on a commercial thorough fare, not next to the highway or railroad track and not a bus ride or car ride away from downtown. We combine our location with the best pricing and the best amenities. Finally, we are immaculately clean

Good. but a couple of reservations...

  • 3 of 5

Great location!

The apartment was fine.... The kitchen was somewhat dated and old, and needed a pick-me-up. The bathroom had absolutely no room to put anything down.... We arrived in a heat wave, and sleeping was very difficult because there was no air conditioning.

Living room/bedroom were both fine and the furniture was comfortable.

As good as it gets!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here the second time (after 2012) and loved it just the same!!

Perfectly located with beaches and State St only a very few minutes walk away, we enjoyed our days strolling around and sitting on the balcony with a cold drink.

Apartment is well stocked with kitchen ware as well as spices, oil, sugar,...

Bed is super comfy, as is the sofa, having a private parking spot behind the house is very convenient, communication with Eddy was lightning fast, all in all again an amazing stay!!

Thanks for having us, we'll be back for sure!!

Great location. No A/C

  • 4 of 5

The location of this apartment is great. Quiet and only 2 blocks from the beach. Easy communication with the landlord with good recommendations for restaurants. It had everything we needed except air conditioning. A/C is not standard in Santa Barbara properties, so this is not a strong criticism, but it was unbearably hot during our visit. Ceiling fans and open windows made the nights bearable. I highly recommend the property, just watch out for the heat.

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Not only was this place darling, but it was the perfect location. Just blocks from the beach and downtown area, we were able to walk around and explore all that Santa Barbara had to offer. Not only was the location perfect, but this little getaway was perfect for my family of 3. The bed was beyond comfy and the place was ultra cozy, which lead to dinners on the terrace, and breakfast in the cute little breakfast nook. We loved the fact that Melanie provided Shampoo/Conditioner/Dish Soap/Laundry Detergent. This allowed us to pack much lighter and come home with freshly washed clothes that we could put away as soon as we got back (which was huge for me). I would highly recommend this for any couple or small family looking for an amazing Santa Barbara getaway.

There are 900+ vacation rentals in the 'Santa Barbara Area'. Vacation rentals pricing follow the same trend as real estate pricing - location, location. The farther out you go out of Santa Barbara, the less expensive the real estate and the better the vacation rental pricing.

We are located in the best area of Santa Barbara - the Historic West Beach Area - 2 blocks to the Beach and downtown Santa Barbara, yet not on a commercial thoroughfare, not next to the railroad tracks or not adjacent a highway. And we offer private reserved parking.

In addition to location, look at our property and compare amenities and pricing. We are unmatched.
