About Laura Wildman
I take care of The 3 DUX and our guests for my cousin Inga Frick. She grew up in the house with her grandparents and mother. Her grandfather was "Papa Duck" to all of the kids of the extended family. He was much beloved by all the family and The DUX are named in honor of him.
Laura Wildman purchased this Condo in 1993
Why Laura Wildman chose Lower State
Inga: Our family were renters in the house for 40 years before we were able to buy it in 1993. My grandfather ran a washing machine repair business in the house for many years.

Perfect location ! We could walk everywhere! Quiet and peaceful!
Laura was very accommodating. The unit had everything we needed. Small concern was the living room furniture isn’t the most comfortable. Hard to sit and visit there. If we go to Santa Barbara again for sure we’ll stay there!
Best vacation rental yet!
We had such a wonderful time we extended our stay by a day and Laura was very accommodating to make that happen. Unit has everything you could need and is accessible up everything. Convertible sofa is surprisingly comfy! Will definitely book again and recommend to others.
Great location, stay and responsive property management
We loved it. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.
Lovely little place right in walking distance to Downtown SB
We needed room for three, and we got it comfortably in this gorgeous upstairs space, decorated with artistic style and love. It is beautiful, the deck was an added bonus
My girls and I hope to book Papa Dux every time we come back, and we have stayed a lot of places over the years. Superb
Quaint, clean and organized. Great location!

Walk from the train; stay in quiet comfort
I've stayed in the Dux tri-plex twice this summer and both were fantastic experiences. Whether you're on a low-key girls trip (my first trip) or an extended family trip (my second trip), you'll be glad you stayed here. Despite being four blocks from the Amtrak station, two blocks off State street, and about four blocks to the funk zone, you'll enjoy relaxing quiet comfort. Everyone from my 3-year old to the 67- year old grandma was happy. The owners truly care about the comfort of their guests and run a professional (eg, great communication in booking, amazingly detailed binder inside, easy access, little expected at checkout) yet homey (eg, music and fireplace on when you get there, chocolates on the table) operation. Kitchen is well-stocked, even a Crock-Pot. So many extra touches outside as well including bikes, beach chairs, and sand toys. The Dux tri-plex is my go-to in Santa Barbara. Stay there and I'm sure it will soon be yours.
