About the property

Beach Villa 2 bedroom & 1.5 bath steps from the beach, zoo, wharf & State street

Located across the street from East Beach, this two bedroom and 1.5 bath beach house is the perfect beachside get away. With bikes, full garage, two fireplaces, patio, washer and dryer and brand new stainless steel kitchen appliances, this villa immediately becomes your beachside vacation home. Take the bikes for a less than a mile cruise to Montecito to enjoy all the coastal town has to offer; restaurants, delis, and one of the locally best kept secrets- Butterfly Beach. Or take the bikes 5 minutes west towards the wharf to enjoy fresh clam chowder, cold drinks, and local chatter. Famous State street is less than a mile away, which is known for its restaurants, shopping, movie theaters and more. Whether biking or using the electric shuttle State street is the perfect spot for exploring all of Santa Barbara's ins and outs. The beach house is located blocks from the bike friendly zoo- a perfect way to spend the day amongst the animals and park beauty. Check out the urban wine trail for an afternoon of biking and wine tasting through SB's 'funk zone'. On your way back from a day of activities stop by the market located steps from home. The market offers the freshest locally grown produce that can make the best home made dinner in the fully equipped kitchen. Curl up on the over stuffed couch with a good beach read or watch a movie on the 50' HD Smart TV flat screen. Catch rays in your own private patio and make the home your own by relaxing, laughing, and enjoying your new home away from away; the east beach villa steps from the sand and sea.

Notes:
Quietly nestled between the ocean & the mountains, Santa Barbara represents the essence of California -- the art & culture of the big city & the heart & hospitality of a small, coastal town. Our beach house is centrally located between the shopping on State Street, some of the best restaurants in the country, Montecito and the famous East Beach. Grab the bikes and head out on the Urban Wine Trail or stroll toward the sunset and enjoy Historic Stearns Wharf...California’s oldest working wharf dating back to 1872. Leave your car in your private attached garage and enjoy all the amenities at a coastal pace..by bike, by foot or by electric shuttle! Santa Barbara...Blink, and you will imagine you're living on the Riviera.

Clean, easy access, great location.

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the house was exactly as expected. Perfect location - one block from the beach, easy walk along the beach to the center of town, right next to the zoo; everything we were looking for. Owners were clear and considerate, no problems.

Adorable, Fabulous Location!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with a few friends for a girls weekend and we had a blast! This adorable little beach bungalow is in such an amazing location! Just steps from the ocean, we rode the beach cruisers everywhere! Honestly, you can ride to the zoo, The Biltmore, down to the pier, etc. What I love about this area of SB is The Funk Zone! All these cute wine tasting rooms, only about a 10 minute ride from the townhouse! The house was so clean, there were fresh towels and bedding, and there is even a cute little courtyard with a fountain- we had our morning coffee and read out there, it was very peaceful. This house is the perfect getaway for a couple, friends or a family! I can't wait to come back!

Amazing, Perfectly Located and Everything You Need!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a weekend during the summer and felt like I was in my own beachfront home! The house is perfectly located, nice, clean and spacious. The courtyard in the back is a great, cozy place to relax and listen to the fountain after a day of biking with the beach cruisers provided. We didn't have to get in a car once! I would highly recommend staying here and will be back again next summer!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Had an amazing girls' weekend in SB and this house was perfect for our stay. Highly recommend! We used the beach cruisers to bike to the wharf and to the funk zone to wine taste. Then enjoyed a dinner in Montecito (about a 3 minute uber ride from the house). Great spot and very Santa Barbara!

Great week by the beach

  • 5 of 5

The East Beach Villa was perfect!! Our family had a great time. The main area(kitchen and family room) was comfortable and spacious. All the amenities made it easy to socialize and cook together. We really enjoyed using the bikes to go out and enjoy the beauty of Santa Barbara. Nothing is better than riding your bike on a trail enjoying the views and the ocean breeze on your face!!

Lori and Greg were thoughtful and prompt in answering any questions. I would definitely love to come back and stay at this wonderful beach house again!!

Thank you!!!!!

Cute and close to the beach!

  • 4 of 5

This house is really cute and bright. It is no more than a 5 minute walk to the beach, which is amazing! We were also able to make use of the bikes to explore some of the areas shops/restaurants/bars that were a little farther away. The only reason I gave 4 starts is because there was hair all over from the prior renters! On the couches, in the showers, even in the beds! The owners were really helpful though offering to come in and have it re-cleaned and ended up discounting our stay.

Car: not necessary

Nestled across the street from east beach between the famous Santa Barbara zoo and the wharf, this perfect beach house location offers a variety of activities that fit all requests and needs. From a day at the zoo, paddle surfing, biking along the coast or just a relaxing afternoon under the sun. The location offers the authentic side of Santa Barbara with a market steps away, which sells the freshest and locally grown produce. With over six bikes at the beach house, a bike ride to the local favorite 'Brophy Brothers' is the perfect wharf spot to enjoy clam chowder and a view of mountain and sea. Given the perfect location, all parts of Santa Barbara are easily accessible. Montecito is a short bike ride where one can dine at Mexican restaurant Los Arroyos, or spend an entire day at Butterfly Beach. An urban wine tasting course can be enjoyed by bike ride through the downtown 'funk zone' of SB. Less than a mile away is the world known State street. Head up State street to visit shops, movie theaters, churches, restaurants, and more. All favorite Santa Barbara spots are reachable by bike from the beach house location, and after a day of fun it's best to come back to a place you can call home.
