Eastside House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 1 Bath With Ocean/City Views

This inviting two bedroom house on Santa Barbara's riviera is the perfect paradise retreat. The large rear deck has ocean and city views and is perfect for sunbathing, outdoor dining or just relaxing in the hot tub.

The interior is very warm and inviting with it's wood floors, comfortable furnishings, fireplace and cozy beds. The outdoor living space is what makes this house exceptional with it's great views of downtown Santa Barbara and the ocean.

A very functional and well stocked kitchen is perfect for cooking and entertaining while the outdoor grill and deck furniture make for great outdoor dining experiences.

The house comfortably sleeps four in the two bedrooms each which has a very comfortable pillow top queen bed. The bed in the master bedroom is also toped with a feather bed. Additional people can be accommodated in a pinch on the floor of the living room with the use of an Aero-bed that is available for your use.

There are many high-tech features with a built-in sound system throughout the house and the deck with individual room volume controls which you can connect to from your iPod, computer or using AirPlay or by plugging in directly. A surround sound home theater exists with BlueRay DVD as well as Cable TV and Apple TV with Netflix, Pandora and other services as well. This is all connected to a 46' LED TV added new in 2014.

As a guest you will have access to everything in the house as shown in the photos, plus exclusive use of the deck and the hot tub. The house is on a downhill slope with the two bedroom rental house on the upper level which is the street level. There are a few small steps up into the house from the walkway. I live on the lower level which I access down the driveway and around the rear of the house. There are no shared interior spaces or entries so you will have privacy.

This is a pet-friendly house that has a secure outdoor deck area. Dogs may be permitted with advance arrangements. No cats please. My beagle Dudley lives with me on the lower level and hangs out in the rear yard on the lower level. There is a staircase with a gate that separates the upper deck and lower rear yard.

There are laundry facilities in the house for your use.

PLEASE NOTE: As of Jan 1, 2017 this house may only be rented for periods of 31 nights or longer. If you would like more information or would like to discuss options regarding this rental, please inquire directly either through this site or via email at rental 'at' bgbennett ,com.

Note that for rentals prior to Jan 1, 2017 when you receive a quote for stays of 30 nights or less there will be 12% city hotel added which we are required to pay if your stay is less than 30 days. If you are comparing this to my listing on other sites where the tax is added after the fact, the final total price comes out to be exactly the same.

GETTING AROUND:

The house is at the end of a cul-de-sac and is a very cute and quiet street on the lower riviera of Santa Barbara. There is parking easily available on the street and you will have space to park one car off-street in the driveway.

You are walking or a short driving distance to:

The beach: 1.5 miles (30 min walk)

Eastside restaurants: .5 miles (10 min walk)

Downtown: 1.3 miles (30 min walk)

Getting around is easiest by cab (about $10-12 to downtown). This bus is available with about a 10 min walk.

About Bradley Bennett

I am a Santa Barbara native and have owned this house since 2001. I live on the property in the lower unit below the house with my beagle Dudley, but I am easy going and will remain as invisible to your stay as possible. You have total privacy in the house and there is no shared space between the units.

Bradley Bennett purchased this house in 2001

Guestbook comments from the owner

Brad's house overlooking the Santa Barbara coastline was perfect for my weekend trip with my boyfriend, dog, another couple, and their 7 month old baby. Upon arrival, we found a welcome gift of wine, pistachios, and pickled carrots (all local, all delicious) on the table with a note from Brad. It was a thoughtful gesture, and a great way to start the trip. Our dog loved the big fenced-in yard, and got along well with Brad's friendly beagle Dudley. Despite our somewhat large group (6 if you count the dog and baby) the house never felt crowded, and his spacious living room and large patio were great for relaxing with our friends. I wish we could have spent more time at the house, as we were in town for a wedding and did not have the chance to barbecue on the deck or lounge in the hot tub. I will definitely come back to this house next time I am in SB.

Quaint and Cozy Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house is so warm and cozy! I came here with my parents, husband and little dog Bruno. We had a wonderful time in beautuful Santa Barbara. It was very centrally located about 10 minutes from the beach, downtown and the college. I would definitely stay here again! The price point for our budget and was really worth it! I wouldn't want to pay any more, but it was really great and fit our needs perfectly. Loved the spa! The view was nice as well. Great place!

Awesome house and view!

  • 5 of 5

This house was the perfect getaway for a college reunion! The view was incredible, the house was comfortable and the amenities were wonderful. The house was well-stocked and Brad was readily available when we had an issue working the surround sound. It was an easy place to sit back and relax while being close to all the Santa Barbara shopping and dining. What a find! I will definitely rent again when back in Santa Barbara.

Charming home, loved the back deck overlooking the ocean. Very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Family of four visited SB to meet up with old college friends. This was a great place to come back to. Loved catching up on the deck in the evening while kids played board games inside. Such an incredible view. Very clean, bright kitchen, loved the artwork from around the world! Such a sweet find in an otherwise crazy expensive place to visit. Will definitely come back! Thanks, Brad and Dudley!
