Property description

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 4 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.

This is a pet-friendly house that has a secure deck area as well as a fully fenced back yard. Dogs may be permitted with advance arrangements. No cats please.

As a guest you will have access to everything in the house plus exclusive use of the deck and the hot tub. There are also laundry facilities in the house.

Please note that when you receive a quote 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 the owner: 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.
