Property description

Seashore Cottage is a beautifully maintained beach house in one of the best locations in Santa Barbara. The property is circa 1940 in an art nouveau style and has been carefully restored to its original charm while offering the comforts of first class accommodations. It is half a block to Santa Barbara's East Beach, and a short walk to the world renowned Santa Barbara Zoo. It is about a mile walk to both State Street (Stearns Wharf) and Montecito. Very close to a scheduled stop on Santa Barbara's Electric Bus Route that takes you to the wharf and downtown (25 cents, includes one transfer!).

Seashore Cottage is a single family home which includes three bedrooms, two with queen beds and one with two twins, and two sleeper sofas which convert to queen beds. The house is equipped with new appliances, a private washer and dryer, fine quality linens and bedding, and attractive furnishings. The cottage is filled with light, decorated in a beach motif and welcomes you to relax, kick your shoes off and make yourself at home.

The property offers a lushly landscaped and wonderfully private,fully fenced rear yard, which is very rare for this location. The yard includes a vine draped pergola under which there is a fountain and furniture for lounging and dining, a private and secluded Jacuzzi large enough for 6 people and a BBQ adjacent to the kitchen. Our two car garage has been converted into an indoor/outdoor cabana where you can play ping-pong while the kids draw chalk art on the concrete nearby. We also have three orange trees which bear delicious juicing oranges. Mimosas, anyone?

Whether traveling solo, with friends, extended family or small children, Seashore Cottage really makes your vacation stress free!

Owner info

About the owner: We have lived in Santa Barbara for over 30 years. My husband is a well-known and popular ophthalmologist and I am a retired attorney. We have raised three children in Santa Barbara and now that they are all off doing their own thing, I have embarked on a new career owning and operating my two vacation rentals (the other one is near the Biltmore Hotel in Montecito - VRBO #382419.) Although we have traveled all over the globe, we are always so glad to come home to this magical place. We think you'll feel the same! I manage my vacation rentals with the same care that I have devoted to our own home on the Riviera, and they are both impeccably maintained. We have enjoyed staying in properties like ours that offer the comforts of a first class hotel, with a lot more space and convenience. Santa Barbara offers the most fabulous lifestyle, and Seashore Cottage will give you the opportunity to 'live like a local.' Welcome to paradise!

Why the Owner Chose East Beach, Santa Barbara, CA, USA:
Location, location, location! A short block to Santa Barbara's East beach, walking distance to downtown Santa Barbara, the Santa Barbara Zoo, and Montecito. A great market on the corner, Trader Joe's two blocks away. Easy freeway access. Three hotel spas, bike rentals, visitor information all within walking distance. This is the place to be.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Seashore Cottage is a 1940's era art nouveau style single story cottage that has been lovingly and painstakingly restored and renovated to its original charm. We have salvaged all original hardware and there are hardwood floors in the bedrooms and living rooms, slate floors in the kitchens and carrera marble in the bathrooms. Rare for the area, Seashore Cottage features a beautifully landscaped and fully enclosed rear yard with an indoor/outdoor playroom which is wonderful for small children. Every interior surface has been re-finished, without sacrificing the unique appeal of an older home. The layout of this property is great for two families or multi-generation extended families with plenty of separation for the youngsters to play while the adults relax. The primary kitchen is adjacent to the backyard and the BBQ, and there is a secondary 'entertainment/wet bar/laundry' kitchen in the front living room area.
