About the Property

Spacious 2 bedroom, 2 bath apartment with 2 private patios. Walk to beach.

Travelers: Our short term rental option will end this year after which we will require a 30 night minimum. Book now and plan a visit to beautiful Santa Barbara while time still allows. 3 night minimum.

Spacious 2 bedroom and 2 bath apartment, including 2 private patio areas. The ideal location, no need for a car. We are only 1.5 blocks from lovely West Beach. Walk to State Street, Stearns Wharf, The Funk Zone, and the Amtrak Train Station in minutes. Hop the Electric Shuttle at the Wharf and explore the waterfront and downtown State Street for shopping and dining.

We are a scenic five minute walk to the Wharf or the Yacht Harbor where you can enjoy boating, kayaking, fishing, and dining. This Harbor is a lovely spot to enjoy a meal or cocktails while taking in beautiful views of the harbor and the Santa Barbara 'Riviera' mountain scape. Visit us for our annual Harbor & Seafood Festival. Also within walking distance to Santa Barbara's Funk Zone, a sub-culture of artisan shops, hip eateries, nook wine tasting rooms and award-winning microbreweries.


Come enjoy year-round music festivals, wine and food festivals, art shows, and cultural celebrations. We are also a very active community with many sporting events throughout the year.

Santa Barbara is one of Old California's most charming and romantic cities which boasts Mediterranean climate, miles of beaches, palm tree lined streets and beautiful Spanish architecture. If this is your first trip to Santa Barbara, 'The American Riviera', it certainly will not be your last!

West Beach Retreat is a lower, single-level unit of a lovely triplex. No smoking allowed. Note for those with pet allergies: No pets allowed so we are free of those types of allergens.
