About Ian Anderson

This recently updated home has been a family treasure since my grandparents purchased it nearly 50 years ago.

Ian Anderson purchased this apartment in 1965

Why Ian Anderson chose West Beach

We grew up on California's central coast, and now make Santa Barbara our home. It is a wonderful place to live and we feel like we're vacationing in our own home town. This home is central to the Santa Ynez wine country, and just 90 minutes from Los Angeles.

Quiet, comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

The house is located very close to the beach and restaurants as well as the wharf. You can walk to major shops and great eateries near the marina. Abundant parking in the back for my 25 foot Mercedes Sprinter van. Plenty of cookware, for which we cooked an entire meal with. Very roomy for a family of six.

Beautiful location; spacious, serene spot

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a quick getaway trip up to SB and are extremely glad we chose this spot for our vacation! Ian's place is warmly-decorated, quiet, clean, and just a few blocks from the water. It was easy to locate, and the check-in directions were simple to follow. We spent most of our time out exploring the area, but there is a full-featured kitchen and dining room that could be utilized if someone were to spend more time in the apartment. It was easy enough to leave the car parked in the driveway and simply walk out the door to the happening spots out on State Street. We took Ian's recommendation for a quality restaurant along the water the first night and it definitely lived up to the billing. We'll definitely be staying here again next time we are up in SB. Thank you Ian!

Great location and very nice apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very nice, well furnished and clean. The kitchen had everything we needed and we took advantage of that by cooking several meals. For me, the location was the real attraction and we were not disappointed. We were within easy walking distance of several restaurants, shops and most importantly, the beach. I would be happy to stay here again.

Lovely Stay

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time staying here! I’m very into architecture and I loved the window in the living room. It had everything that I needed and the place was clean and well arranged. It was also close in location to State St. which made walking around from place to place easy. Would love to stay again in the future.

Charming Spanish 1920s Duplex close to Beach

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely property, with tons of charm and character. Located just blocks from the beach, it is a very quiet, upstairs unit in a Spanish duplex in a residential neighborhood. Very clean, with a well stocked kitchen for cooking. We absolutely LOVED this rental and will be back again! The weather was suddenly warm and gorgeous, so we did not take advantage of the charming fireplace, but we were so happy it was there. Thank you for taking such good care of everything!
