A comfortable place like home near headlands and the beach
We spent a wonderfully peaceful month there including a pleasant Christmas week with our grown kids.
Location ideal. Parking in driveway for 2-3 cars. We used public bus for a month with no issues. 5 min walk to bus stop. 2km walk (or bus ride) to the closest grocery store, 25 min bus ride to downtown.
8 min walk to a beautiful beach which also has the Boathouse, a nice restaurant. 6 min or less walk to 3 different park areas, 2 have stunning headland views of the ocean and the Channel Islands. There are bikes in the garage if you desire.
Totally remodeled in the last few years. Very well-equipped kitchen with all gear and modern appliances we needed to prepare several gourmet meals. Indeed the entire house was thoughtfully stocked.
Nice large screen tv and excellent, stable wifi/internet. All bedrooms have very comfortable beds. One bedroom is separate with en suite bathroom. One of the other bedrooms has a separate door to the main bathrooom.
Natural lighting in the family room is good with a sunlight as well as glass-panelled front door and wide french doors to the backyard, although the place gets a little chilly in the morning.
The backyard is immaculately landscaped and delightful to sit out in and read. Our family photo taken in the backyard looks like it was taken at a wedding venue.
The neighborhood is old and well-established with markedly friendly neighbors.
Our overall impression was quite positive. We had a wonderful time.
We are so pleased you enjoyed your visit and would love to welcome you back sometime!
Great house and location
Great house and yard near the beach
Santa Barbara’s Haven
What a great family home!So many extras added for your a very relaxing and welcoming holiday. Immediately entering Arroyo Burro Beach Retreat you know you will be soon in a holiday mood...Christy and Tim have thought of what you might need for a growing family and added extra touches for many activities . Surprisingly, the Sun shines quickly warms the air I can hardly believe it is Winter.Nearby is The Boathouse to drop in for a coffee and walk along the beach....I will always fondly remember my holiday in Santa Barbara and say thank you to Christy and Tim.
Lovely -- So Comfortable and Convenient
Everything about this lovely home says, "Beach." The location -- within walking distance of the adorable Arroyo Burro Beach -- is ideal. The surroundings are beautiful -- inside and out! A special plus is the proximity to the Douglas Preserve, ideal for morning walks overlooking the ocean. There are even tennis courts nearby, and of course the city of Santa Barbara with all it has to offer is just a short car ride away. The place comes very well equipped and has everything needed for a comfortable stay. We were here for a month and could easily have stayed longer. Maybe next year!
We are so happy you enjoyed your stay, and would love to welcome you back next year!
This house is wonderful! The owners made us feel welcome and were responsive to all of our questions and requests.
The kitchen is very well stocked with everything needed. We hosted a BBQ for 20 people on then patio, and had everything we needed for cooking and serving.
The bedrooms are comfortable, and everything is clean and updated.
The proximity to Hendry's Beach made our stay delightful, and our granddaughters spend many happy hours taking advantage of the boogie boards and bikes that are available at the house. We had a great time in Santa Barbara, and will undoubtedly return to this property again and again.
The neighborhood is very quiet— low-key afternoon barbecues are ok, but noisy parties are not allowed.
