Property description

Welcome to the Painted Pony Bungalow. Take a step back in time in this ninety-seven year old bungalow secluded from the street by two giant oak trees. With two bedrooms / one bath, it accommodates four guests in comfort. Dog friendly, please inquire.

Our bungalow is located on a quiet, three block long street in the Bungalow Haven neighborhood that includes a large number of intact Craftsman-era bungalows in a four block square area. It's only six blocks from State Street, close enough for an easy walk and far enough to escape traffic and noise.

At State Street you'll find the Museum of Art and the newly rebuilt Granada Theater. The Santa Barbara County Bowl is three blocks away. The beach is two miles by car or bicycle. It’s only a mile to Santa Barbara Mission and Rose Garden.

Painted Pony Bungalow features these amenities:

Charming kitchen with original cabinetry, and a 50’s era Wedgewood stove, microwave, bright red corner booth, a microwave, a coffee maker and a washer & dryer tucked away in a closet. The kitchen is fully equipped with pots and pans, utensils and tableware.

French doors open to the garden and deck, with a hot tub/spa seating six and a natural gas barbeque. The yard is fully enclosed and dog-friendly.

High-tech goodies include broadband Wi-Fi, 40” HDTV, DVD/CD player and an iPod/iPhone dock. The living and dining rooms feature early 20th century cabinetry and trim, oak floors and a gas fireplace.

The master bedroom has a queen bed. The front bedroom has a full bed. Both beds are extremely comfortable. Fresh bed linens and towels are provided. The bathroom has been recently renovated with new low-flow toilet, refinished tub, and vanity.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1991

About the owner: We are Eric Kelley and Peggy Lindt. Eric is the owner of The Book Den, California's Oldest Used Book Store. Peggy is an artist and designer. Her art work has been used in postcards, calendars, books, and several Old Spanish Days Fiesta posters. Peggy has lived in Santa Barbara since childhood. Eric came to town when he bought The Book Den in 1979.

Why the Owner Chose Laguna, Santa Barbara, CA, USA:
We bought this house for ourselves to live in. When Peggy's mother needed more assistance, we moved across town to help, and thought we'd rather rent the bungalow furnished as a vacation rental than have to store all of our furniture. We've always loved the eastside location. It's in Santa Barbara's Bungalow Haven neighborhood, so the whole area is full of nicely maintained bungalows. It's easy walking distance to downtown; Eric and our dog Django often walked to work together. If you stay at Painted Pony Bungalow, you'll get a real feel for old-fashioned Santa Barbara living.

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
Staying in Painted Pony Bungalow gives all the old-fashioned comfort of a craftsman bungalow built in 1917, with lovely woodwork and built-in cabinetry, and vintage kitchen and oak floors. But you don't have to leave 21st century conveniences behind. There's a hot tub, HD television and wi-fi Internet. It's the best combination of the old and the new.
