About JOHN MCGEE
Wife is an artist who loves to renovate old houses. This is our 8th renovation.
JOHN MCGEE purchased this House in 2012
Why JOHN MCGEE chose Downtown
We chose to buy this house due to the architectural qualities and the proximity, short walk, to downtown Santa Barbara. The house was built in 1910 and has unique charm. We have renovated focusing on maintaining the integrity of the period with modern conveniences. My wife, an accomplished artist, has a passion for redoing houses and keeping the charm. She puts thought in every detail from the Donald Kaufman interior paint to the lighting fixtures which in this house many are from Europe and are from the mid-century, all of which are pieces of art. She finds furnishings from around the globe. No detail is too small. Everything is thought out with focus on aesthetics, functionality and comfort. We want your stay to be truly memorable. This is our seventh renovation/redo for our properties, including locations in New Orleans, the north shore of Kauai, the Big Island and Honolulu. We currently own and operate 3 vacation rental properties all listed on vrbo. Visit our other properties at vrbo listings 200590 and 129143. We will soon add properties in Park city, UT and another property in Honolulu. None of our properties are your typical vacation rental. Each has character and style and is more like a home than a rental property. Our artwork includes collectors items from around the US and south Pacific. Much of our furniture in our places is from Paris, New Orleans, south Pacific and more. Come be our guest and enjoy your stay in the beautiful town of Santa Barbara.

Perfect spot for a weekend getaway
This home was so perfect and I appreciate John making things so easy for us. We needed a spot that was centrally located to everything happening in SB during my sister's wedding weekend and this home had everything we needed and more. The two bedrooms were so comfortable and beautiful. The backyard was the perfect spot for our 2 year old son to run around. Thankfully, the house has AC which we totally needed as it was unseasonably warm that weekend. We walked every morning to State St. to grab breakfast since it was a short 5 min walk down the street. We can't wait to stay here again, John!
Santa Barbara Cottage
We had a great trip. The house was clean and decorated nice. Great location in walking distance to restaurants and shops.

Comfortable home, great location!
Comfortable and clean bungalow with all necessary amenities. Relaxing and beautiful yard. Great location, walking distance to so many great restaurants and shops. Great house for dogs with secure fenced in front and back yards. We throughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend to anyone planning a trip to SB.
Our third stay in this darling bungalow! Great location and beautifully decorated. Being able to walk everywhere and then come "home" to this cute place made our vacation!
We are a short walk from Santa Barbara's State Street where you will find shopping, restaurants, bars, theatre and much more and just a short, less than 1 mile from the beach. We have 2 bikes for your use, with a security deposit, while staying at the Fig House. This is a premier location where you will not need to get into your car for dining, groceries, bars, shopping, theatre. beach, museum and so much more...stay out of your car for a few days!
