About The Owner

We're very active people and enjoy the outdoors. We're avid bikers, hikers, kayakers, sailors, skaters, runners, swimmers and surfers. Santa Barbara offers everything we love to do, with a plus of year round nice weather.

The Owner purchased this house in 2006

Why The Owner chose Santa Barbara

Santa Barbara is a premier vacation spot to visit, with so many things to do and see. The climate is very agreeable all year long, stunning mountain-to-the-sea vistas, farm-to-table cuisine. Santa Barbara is classy, yet laid back. We love to vacation at the beach and be outside, being active, so this was a natural choice. The location of the property is right next to the beach, parks, close to downtown and wineries.

What makes this house unique

The property is close to everything, so for location, you can't beat it. The cottage is comfortable and cozy, with a tropical flair. Great for couples, friends and family.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house was great as we celebrated a wedding of a good friend and introduced our infant daughter to the beach ~ Pacific Ocean. The Champion-Morton Family, Boston, MA

What a quaint little gem!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 totally loved our stay in this very well appointed cozy cottage. Just a block off shoreline drive so cars aren't passing by day and night, yet close enough to the beach and state street to enjoy what SB has to offer. Such a nice little find in SB.

Great getaway home.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Santa Barbara. We are a very active family of 4 and walked cycled or Skateboarded everywhere we went. The house is neat and clean will all the facilities you could need. I would recommend bring your bike or asking to borrow the cruisers, its only a short ride into the main part of Santa Barbara.

Sweet bungalow in awesome location

  • 5 of 5

What more can we say? This little cottage exudes perfection! The location is ideal (in a quiet neighborhood) - right around the corner is Shoreline park / the ocean and you're close enough to walk to the harbor and into town. Awesome market (Lazy Acres) is right up the road as is one of the best restaurants (in our opinion) - Mesa Verde. The house itself is super light, clean, comfortable and the French doors off the kitchen welcome you into the tropical landscaped, very private backyard. The owners make your stay very welcome. We will definitely be back!

Perfect little beach home

  • 5 of 5

Little Palm Cottage was perfect for our Santa Barbara visit. There were four of us, 3 adults, and 1 child. The living room/kitchen space is comfortable and decorated very attractively. Everything is in excellent condition. The kitchen is very well equipped with nice quality items. Though there is only one bathroom, we never felt it was a problem. We plan to rent again as soon as we can return to SB.

We Had a great time

  • 5 of 5

I booked the little palm cottage for an extended stay with my wife and 4 year old son this past January/February. It was everything we expected and more. The house is extremely clean and well kept with a very nice, private outdoor space.

The location is super convenient to down town and being right off shoreline drive there is a very nice park with a playground and beach only steps away. I hope to stay there again next winter.

Our family had a wonderful stay at Little Palm Cottage.

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful summer vacation staying at Little Palm Cottage. The home is updated, sweet, welcoming and turnkey. The backyard is beautiful with a great deck. We walked to the beach nearly every day, our kids loved playing at the nearby park, and we were close to all of the destinations we wanted to see in Santa Barbara. The owner is easy to work with and our stay was so relaxing. We will definitely plan another trip back.
