Santa Barbara is a beach community with beaches, pier, sailing, swimming, whale watching and a vibrant cultural life of theatre, events, museums and a beautiful small zoo. It is unique because there are also close mountains that offer hiking, wine tasting and a nearby lake for fishing. Known as the 'American Riviera', it is known for its Spanish architecture, and the beauty of the landscape. The semi tropical climate has led many to say it is similar in appearance to Hawaii with so many varieties of trees and vegetation that are spectacular. Fine dining options abound as well as a vibrant downtown with great shopping. There are even islands close by that are protected sanctuaries that make a great day trip. Santa Barbara is the perfect vacation destination!

About: Wendy and Chuck are longtime residents of Santa Barbara and Big Bear California. We are happy to share our love of these areas with guests. In fact, that is what makes being vacation rental owners of six properties and managing them ourselves so rewarding. We have made many happy memories in all of our properties (we have lived in each one of them) and can share all the special features and local ideas with guests. We love gardening, biking, walks on the beach and spending time with our own family which includes three grown children and five grandchildren and a great granddaughter on the way
Why Oak Park (Santa Barbara, CA, USA):
Craftsman Cottage is a tucked away jewel in downtown Santa Barbara. Down a private driveway, this is an off-street location, not attached to any other property. Enclosed by hedges and greenery there is a tremendously private feel and quiet setting. A sunny open porch make relaxing the great Santa Barbara weather a pleasure
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Featuring outdoor and indoor dining areas there is plenty of room to stretch out. Families with young children love that the yard can be gated giving toddlers a great outdoor play area. Oak Park is a close walk with more for kids. With having a direct relationship with the owner/manager you will deal with one person from your booking to any necessary details during your stay. Couples love the romantic setting of the cottage decor and the fireplace right under the great large screen TV in the living room.' A true retreat from which to begin your Santa Barbara adventures.
