About Destiny

Baker's Beach Cottage was formerly know as 'The Mira-mer' by Sandra Baker. Sandra Baker was a beautiful and vivacious 8th generation Santa Barbara local. Her ancestry roots go back to a founding father of Santa Barbara, Benjamin Foxen. Sandra was often found headlining as the flamenco dancing 'Fiesta Queen' as a teen at Santa Barbara's world famous 'Fiesta' festival. Sandra or 'Saunie-Mom' was successful in wardrobe design on popular sit-coms such as 'Charles in Charge', 'Different Stokes', 'Maud' and more. Yet Saunie-Mom was most known for generous & hospitable nature.

The blissful beach cottage legacy has since been purchased by Sandra's adoring son, Photographer Nathan Baker. Mr. Baker's mission is to bring fun surf and sun to all who want to leave their cares (and shoes) at the door and enter in to the blissful 'Baker's Beach Cottage'.

Destiny purchased this house in 1980

Why Destiny chose Santa Barbara Area

Baker's Beach Cottage offers a fully furnished home with elegance and charm above the rest and maintains a shabby-chic atmosphere. When our guests stay, the home is theirs to enjoy at its fullest. We bring our highest standard to the table and go the distance to keep our guests returning time and time again. The benefits of choosing a vacation rental over a hotel is the unlimited access to a home environment. You can cook freely, cozy up to the fireplace or watch a movie in 3D with your group in the living room. Or just retire to your room for a nap or read a book as you hear the waves roll beneath you.

What makes this house unique

At Miramar Beach, the most unique attribute all the homes on the shore offer beach-front homes ON THE SAND (not just near the beach or ocean views). There is nothing like waking up in the morning, and stepping down off your deck with your toes in the sand! Bakers Beach Cottage is particularly family friendly, pets considered too! Our guests have access to all our sand toys, boogie boards and a stand up paddle board! We also keep our technology and electronic updated and currently feature Direct TV shown on a 3D Smart HD TV with wireless surround sound and a 3D BlueRay player. We have 2 outdoor rinsing showers, 2 direct beach access doors and 2 decks! With steps down to the beach, what more could one want?

Great little beach house...

  • 3 of 5

For the most part, this Beachhouse was great. It is right on the beach, and you couldn't ask for a better location. However, the entire downstairs area was quite musty, and even with the dehumidifiers on, the smell and dampness were still present. And, it didn't seem that the dehumidifiers were working very well. This is a quaint beach house, so if you are wanting that type of experience, this house is perfect. If you are wanting a little more luxury, then I would look elsewhere. For the cost per night of this house, you can get quite luxurious accommodations.

Owner's Response: The humidity this summer has been the worst ive ever seen in southern California and I was born in Santa Barbara. The downstairs bedrooms in these conditions can get moist (your on the sand). We apologize that the dehumidifier couldn't make it drier. We are actaully redoing the entire downstairs with just hardwood floors and all new Windows bigger dehumidifier etc.. As far as finding more luxury for the price. We are one of 25 houses on the sand in Santa Barbara, and one of 5 that rent. You're not in a hotel or dealing with walking across streets to go to the beach and fumble through crowds... you are on it. Good luck First 3 star review, stay in town next time.

Such an amazing time, at an AMAZING property.

  • 5 of 5

We had 2 families joining from all over the country for a second time here, to celebrate a most special milestone. This property could not have been a better hub to to gather at. Such a bright and fun, yet serene setting and the home is so welcoming. Stepping down onto the beach for long walks on the shore is only one of the many highlights...The hardest part is leaving. We look forward to coming back again and again!
