Experience enveloping luxury in this designer apartment in a classic craftsman house one block from the center of town, two blocks from the 'Funk Zone' and five walking blocks to the beach. The house is in the heart of the entertainment district with shopping, music, dance and excellent restaurants just steps away. The house is on a fully enclosed, landscaped property with fruit trees, flowers fountains and gated off street parking. Pick fresh fruit (oranges,plums and pineapple kiwi) and ride the free bicycles for a healthy, relaxing stay in the heart of Santa Barbara. Washer/dryer, dishwasher, patio with fountain, patio furniture, BBQ, 3D HD Smart TV.
This is one of three apartments in an old home so please understand that this is not a good choice for loud late night partying. If you would like to check out the other two apartments, they are Baby Dux (studio) and Papa Dux (one bedroom).

Notes:

We have been lucky to have wonderful guests and happily anticipate adding you to that family.

Once you are booked we will send a detailed confirmation email that you should look over carefully. Your reply constitutes our agreement. There are only two major things that I ask: That you understand that you are renting one of three apartments in a house and that this is a poor choice for loud partying. Reasonable consideration keeps it a peaceful refuge for everyone. The other rule is a strong one: absolutely no smoking in the house! Smoking outside is fine as long as it’s considerate of other guests who might be annoyed by the smoke and if nearby windows or doors (where smoke might drift into the interior) are shut. There is a $1000 charge for detectable cigarette smoke.

Cancellation policy: If cancellation should become necessary we do extra advertising and work on filling the reservation until the reservation dates are past and every effort has been made at recovery. We will refund whatever we are able to recover. We make every effort and so charge $50, whatever the outcome. The earlier you let us know, of course, the better the chances are of making full recovery.

Dogs are considered on a case by case basis. You should communicate with me regarding your dog. After a couple of disasters we are no longer taking large or shaggy dogs (however lovable or well behaved) and we are particularly careful in the shedding season (spring and summer) Sorry!

Mutual consideration works!

THANK YOU ! :) Inga and Laura (and the rest of the family)

Contact us for adjusted prices on stays of 5 or 6 nights or 21 nights or longer.

Payment by cash, check or echeck is much appreciated (but not required).

There is no tax on stays of 31 nights of longer.


Owner's cancellation policy:

100% refund if canceled at least 90 days before arrival date.


Don't forget your vacation protection! Get protected now

Adding our Vacation Protection services can make sure your getaway goes smoothly, no matter what. We offer Cancellation Protection and Damage Protection so you can truly relax.

Protect your payments in case you need to cancel.
Travel with peace of mind.
Ensure you're prepared in case of accidental damage.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1993

About the owner: Laura: I take care of The 3DUX and our guests on behalf of my cousin, Inga Frick. Inga grew up in the house with her mother and grandparents. Her grandfather was know to the extended family as Papa Duck. The DUX are named in his honor.

Why the Owner Chose Lower State, Santa Barbara, CA, USA:
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. Our grandfather was 'Papa Duck' to all the children in the family. Thus The 3 DUX!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
A beautiful home in a convenient location run by good people.
