About Diane Connors
We live in Buellton, CA and have always dreamed of owning a home in Santa Barbara. We have recently retired and purchased and redid this wonderful cottage for us, our daughters, and our 8 grandchildren to use and enjoy. We love sailing off the California coast and feel so lucky when staying at Casa Capricho and being able to walk to the boat at the harbor.
Diane Connors purchased this House in 2015
Why Diane Connors chose West Beach
We initially purchased our vacation cottage because one of our children was attending school in this location, but we quickly fell in love with this beautiful city and all of the cultural and outdoor activities that it offers.
What makes this House unique
We love the Spanish Colonial charm of our cottage, our private garden with orange trees and our quiet neighborhood. We especially love the fact that we can walk everywhere! We take daily walks along East and West Beaches to Shoreline Park or out on Stearns Wharf. We love to walk to our favorite restaurants, Brophy Brothers and Enterprise Fish Company. We often walk to the movie theaters on State Street or to the Farmer's Markets on Tuesdays and Saturdays. We walk to the Santa Barbara Sailing Center, where we can rent a sailboat by the hour or take whale watching cruises. We walk to our Athletic Club to work out, to East Beach to pay beach tennis or volley ball, or to West Beach for swimming or tennis. We often picnic at Shoreline Park. We love the proximity of Santa Barbara City College and the opportunity to take classes there. We also love all the cultural events offered at the Lobero and Granada Theaters and other venues accessible by foot. We enjoy the benefits of the activities of the Maritime Museum, the MOXY museum of science, and the Ronald Reagan Museum with all of their offerings and all within walking distance. It is truly a dream come true to spend time in this city.

Just back from a wonderful stay at Casa Capricho. The location close to beach, State St, train station and downtown attractions is great. Even though close to everything it’s in a very quiet street. We took our bikes and rode them everywhere.
The home is very well equipped, nice outside areas, and immaculate inside and very cozy, which was just as well as it was a very cold week weather wise.
Definitely want to return.
Fantastic place to spend two months.
This is our third year staying in Casa Capricho for two of the nasty (in the northeast) winter months. We squeezed fresh orange juice, from backyard trees, every day of our stay. We walked to the beautiful Santa Barbara beaches, played golf, read in the backyard shade, ate lunches on the outdoor patio, and enjoyed the Santa Barbara farmers’ market twice each week. What’s not to like with these opportunities? We have already reserved two months for next year.
Thank you Russ and Priscilla. We love having you and really like to hear that you enjoy your stay. We appreciate that you enjoy the same things that Don and I love about SB and the cottage.
Great property in great location
We always love our stay here. Diane and Don are great hosts.
Thank you Gail and Chris. We appreciate you coming and are so happy you enjoy the cottage as much as we do. Safe travels.
Perfect location! Perfect stay!
We had the best weekend staying at Casa Capricho. We used our car once the entire time. The house is close to everything and was perfectly equipped with everything we needed. We loved our stay!
Thanks Anna. I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Laura was also very happy to hear that. So great that her college friend found their way to Casa Caprichio. Hope to have you back.
Best place to stay in SB!
My wife & I stayed at Diane's property for three nights in mid October. Firstly Diane is very prompt to return messages and was kind enough to be flexible around our arrival and departure time. The house could not be in a better location, 5 minute walk to either State Street or the beach, we hardly used our car. The street is nice and quiet as well.
The house is a great layout, extremely well decorated and has lots of character. Perfect for a couple. Loved the outside space, very relaxing and lots of sun. The house is very well maintained and does not feel like a rental at all, really does feel like someones second home that they have taken a lot of pride in ensuring you have a very comfortable and relaxing trip.
The only meals we cooked in the kitchen was breakfast, but we had everything we needed and the space was a good enough size. There is a table in the kitchen and in the lounge (as well as outside), so lots of options as to where to eat.
The lounge is very comfortable and cozy with both a fireplace and flat screen. The bedrooms are also a decent size for the cottage as well, beds are very comfortable. Finally, the bathroom is not big, but it is very well decorated and has a fantastic shower, so what else do you need.
For a romantic getaway for two, definitely recommend the property and we would stay here again on our next trip to SB.
Thanks so much Dan! We are so happy that you enjoyed the cottage as much as we do. Hope to have you back again soon.
Great place and location.

Walk to Stearns Wharf, beach, Harbor, boating & kayaking. Walk to fabulous State Street shopping & Dining. Enjoy the trendy new Funk Zone wineries, shops and local beers.
