We also have a full front porch which gets great evening sun so you can sit back, enjoy a glass of wine and watch the world go by. We also have a great hot tub that you can enjoy and gaze at the moon or beautiful SB sunsets. Included also is a gas grill at your disposal. You can also enjoy a rinse after hitting the beach with our outdoor shower!

You will have never ending hot water no matter how many baths or showers you take. We also have a washer/dryer available for your use. Santa Barbara is known for having very hard water and thanks to our water softener, you will have soft water throughout your stay.

We also have a small stand-alone detached room (approx. 150 sq ft) that has a full size convertible bed that can sleep 2 as well, however, you will have to come inside the house for bathroom access from this room.

About The Ramakers

We are long time Santa Barbara residents who absolutely love living in Santa Barbara and truly make the most of living here. Tim grew up in Santa Barbara surfing at all the great local surf spots that the Central Coast has to offer. Shruti moved here to attend UCSB and never wants to move again! Together, we enjoy spending time with our kids and our wonderful friends.

We love drinking local wines, eating at our great restaurants, hiking the local mountains and spending time at the beach...what a life!

Why The Ramakers chose West Side

When we first walked into this house, we fell in love with the gorgeous backyard and the wonderful open and airy feel of this cute house. There was just something that made this home a perfect piece of Santa Barbara.

What makes this house unique

What sets our place apart is our great rates, proximity to Downtown SB and the local beaches, a hot tub, full kitchen and amazing backyard all for a much better deal than a local hotel. We are pet-friendly as well!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to send you a quick note to say how much we enjoyed our stay in your house. We loved the colors that you chose for each room and all of the textures with the stones, tiles and wood. The front yard felt straight out of Sunset magazine and I loved the deep porch. Great taste and great place.

Perfect rental!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time in Santa Barbara! Our first impression of this great city was this amazing house. Great location, beautifully decorated, well maintained! The kids were so excited with the orange tree. We had fresh squeezed juice every morning....they are STILL talking about it! Thank you making our stay so wonderful and relaxing. Great communication prior to our arrival and even still after! Thanks for the memories!

Great home!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay to this Santa Barbara house. Very clean and has all the amenities you need. The fenced in backyard was great for our furry friend and that hammock is the perfect nap spot on a sunny day! The house is in close proximity to great restaurants and parks. Master bedroom bed is also incredibly comfortable!! Would definitely stay in this home again.

Perfect Santa Barbara House

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house. It was perfect for our wedding weekend. My husband and his family stayed here and they loved it. The backyard is massive and the jacuzzi was a nice addition. The beds wee comfortable although, the pull out bed in the living room did slope a little. Would recommend and would rent again.

Comfortable home

  • 4 of 5

We were in Santa Barbara for my brother's wedding. With 3 young children and 3 adults, the property gave room for all. Having a fenced in backyard gave the children a place to run off their energy. The location was very good for us since it was close to my brother's house. It was a little too far to walk to State Street with 3 kids, so drove downtown. But that was not a problem since parking is fairly easy in Santa Barbara. At my brother's recommendation we took the kids to the park at Micheltorena and Santa Barbara Streets where there is a huge climbing structure built like a castle. The kids loved it. We would stay again if we are all traveling together and need the space.

Perfect for a girls weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This house is located 10 minutes from downtown and the beach and is walking distance to a grocery store. There was plenty of room for everyone to sleep. I would certainly recommend this home to anyone looking for a coastal escape.
