Why Caron Miller chose Oak Park
Best location to downtown and the beach. It's really in the heartland of active part of Santa Barbara that includes theatre, great dining, great museums and shopping. You really don't need a car if you stay at this location. Very safe neighborhood and quiet.
What makes this Bungalow unique
We upgraded the front unit in 2012 adding another unit to our location, which is great if 2 couples or 2 family groups want to be close but not in the same space. Front unit has amazing patio, middle unit has great garden area to hang in, read and enjoy an amazing succulent garden with water features and cozy furniture. Each unit have their own VRBO number. This place is impeccably clean; the level of standards and attention to special details that are kept by the owners makes this place so special. Call us to find out about other rental opportunities.

Perfect bungalow walking distance to downtown SB
If you're reading this and even considering staying here...STOP READING & BOOK IT! I only had about a week notice prior to having to move to SB for 5 weeks for an emergency medicine clinical rotation & I completely lucked out with finding this place! Caron & Doug were the best hosts & so accommodating to my odd emergency room hours when it came to being quiet and scheduling the cleaning fairies. They even helped me carry my luggage in when I arrived because I was on crutches. The detail and love they put into their units (I stayed in the middle unit - highly recommend) is easy to see and made me feel like I had my own home for the 5 weeks I was there. I didn't want to leave!
A couple quick points people usually have questions on that were big pluses to me:
- It's your own separate unit
- Kitchen stocked with everything you need
- Great bathroom with soaking tub
- There's a shared laundry room
- Very short walking distance to downtown
- Parking is never an issue (you get a visitor parking pass & there is always parking on the street out front or very close by)
- French doors that open into a beautiful little courtyard
- Cleaning fairies come in once a week and change sheets, towels, clean up
- Yummy banana bread on arrival :)
This place really has it all. I loved talking with Caron & Doug when I got the chance to - they really know the area, and have plenty of great recommendations! I miss SB so much already & know when I return I will be booking with Caron & Doug!!!
Thanks for your visit, we miss you here. We'll see you again. Big love and huge success on being a great care giver you are fab. We so appreciated your stay. Xoxo
Cozy Winter Weekend
The location could not be prettier or more convenient! All the convenience of being in the heart of downtown with the feeling of being secluded in your own private sanctuary. Everything was beautiful and immaculate. Such a fabulous weekend for my husband's birthday! Thanks so much Caron and Doug!
Sorry we didn't get to meet you both personally, maybe next time. xoxox
Loved our stay here. Clean, well-stocked house, and wonderful hosts. Special arrival gift in the form of a delicious walnut cake.
Thank you for making our stay special!
Looking forward to seeing you again. xoxox
A perfect place
Staying in Santa Barbara at Caron and Doug’s place is highly recommended and an experience not to miss. Like a 3-star restaurant it is worth the trip itself:) Great location, of tourists and still close to everything. The cozy house and garden has true character and quickly brings out your inner calm. Caron and Doug are the most fantastic hosts and know every little gem and restaurant to visit in Santa Barbara. Absolutely the best house we ever rented.
Terrific Santa Barbara Getaway
This is the second time my wife and I have stayed here. We came back a second time because we love it. It's a block away from State Street, so we ended up not driving all 4 days we stayed.
The unit is appointed very well. If you like color, warmth, quaintness, and want to live for a little while in a bit of historic coastal California, then this is the place for you. I hope to return.
We so loved having you back. I now you know both units or so well. Thanks for your visit. See you next time. xoxxo Caron & Doug
Walking to town, only one block away. Great dining, shopping, hike trails are very close. We provide bicycles to cruise around town along with beach chairs and umbrellas to enjoy at the beach. We are in a residential/commercial area that is tucked away and quiet. Amazing patio with nice art and plantings. Also have a fire pit for evenings outside under the stars.
Note: We have 2 units on this property. Please see our website below.
