Why Bunny DeLorie chose Santa Barbara

The location is super! 2 blocks to the beach, Harbor and Breakwater. The property is a darling petite 1928 Craftsman Cottage and we just could not resist purchasing it and turning it into a wonderful home-away-from-home.

What makes this cottage unique

Single family home with a private backyard with deck. Charming neighborhood named West Beach. Walk 2 blocks to the beach, Harbor and Breakwater. The location is super.

The Cottage is very comfortable and decorated beautifully. Warm bamboo floors, soothing paint colors which were inspired by the pearl watery greens and ocean blues of the inside of an abalone shell. The living room features a fireplace with gas insert, flat screen TV with DISH Network. The kitchen is fully equiped with everything needed and all modern conveniences. The Cottage has a large master bedroom with french doors to backyard deck and a full bathroom with double sinks and tub-shower. A second bathroom has a shower.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Dear Bunny,

Thank you so much for all the thought and effort you put into your wonderful vacation cottage. love all the white fluffy towels and clean soft sheets. we’ve grilled many wonderful meals on your little deck grill. and we bought a great bottle of champagne and forgot to buy flutes, and of course, they were here. i think my favorite is the lovely rosemary bushes in front that make everything smell fresh and wonderful when i wake up each morning. it’s just so perfect, we’re already contemplating our return visit dates for next summer!



we’ve surfed, biked, segweyed, surried and strolled all over town. we’ve eaten at Tomas, The Lark, Opal, On the Alley, Pascucci, the Shellfish Company, Sambo’s, theScarletBegonia, the Public Market, Jane … we even joined the wine club at LaFonds! what a memorable vacation. my son, Cole, took this photo after dinner at Brophy Brothers last night, right before the waves crashed over the wall and soaked us all!"

Quintessential SoCal Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

It's cozy, comfy, and cheerful, stocked with all the comforts of home. There's a backyard barbecue, washer and dryer, kitchen gadgets, and of course, beach chairs (being so close to the beach). We appreciated that it was built with a master craftsman's touch and furnished with a decorator's eye, plus it is was impeccably clean. Relaxing, pale blues and greens with ocean-inspired treasures everywhere remind you that you truly are at the beach. There are bunnies strategically placed in honor of the charming owner, Bunny DeLorie, who really knows Santa Barbara and offers the best tips for what to see and do and where to eat. There's a private parking spot, but you don't have to walk far to get to the beach, wharf, harbor, restaurants, shopping and museums. We walked everywhere. Our stay was too quick. We are checking the availability calendar for our next visit.

Feels like home the second you walk in!

  • 5 of 5

The Beach Bunny Cottage is perfect in every way. We used to live in Santa Barbara and this location felt just like home to us and was perfect for our 10 day Christmas vacation. Bunny, the owner, is an extraordinary hostess and she even decorated the cottage for the holidays! It is nestled in a very quiet neighborhood within easy walking distance to downtown State Street restaurants & bars, Stearns Wharf, the Marina and the Funk Zone.

It has a well-equipped modern kitchen, large master bedroom with a vaulted ceiling and a large full bath, a spacious living room with a fireplace and a fully secluded deck with tables, chairs and a BBQ in the back. The grounds are well maintained and meticulously landscaped. Everything seemed roomy and comfortable with all of the extras that make Beach Bunny Cottage feel like home the second you walk in.

The cottage has its own private parking spot which is a treasured commodity in downtown SB. With such a great location, a car is not a necessity but we already had a rental car so we were able to make day trips to wine country and nearby towns during our stay. We dined out often but we frequently walked down to the Marina and bought fresh fish at the SB Fish Market and prepared our own "Catch of the Day" at the Beach Bunny Cottage.

You can't find a more comfortable vacation home or a better location than this in Santa Barbara. Thanks Bunny!

Fantastic Thanksgiving Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The Bunny Cottage was a perfect fit for our family of four! Our ten year old twin boys loved the loft and it was so easy to stay there. The proximity of this house location to the beach, harbor and State Street was wonderful, we barely used our car. Bunny was so nice and made us feel comfortable to call if we needed anything at all during our stay. We really appreciated the beach chairs and toys. We can't wait to book our next trip!

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This is the most perfect cottage in Santa Barbara. We've stayed in many online rentals and this one exceeds the photos. Immaculanlty clean, beautifully decorated, all the comforts are above and beyond. We were in town for a wedding and were able to walk to almost every event. In our down time we walked to the beach (and loved that chairs, umbrella, and sand toys were provided) and downtown. Perfect location. We can't wait to come back and enjoy all the things Santa Barbara has to offer. Thank you for helping to make our trip so easy and enjoyable. BTW, the queen air bed is so comfortable, like sleeping on a bed for royalty.
