Luxury bungalow with private patio, spa and Tranquility fountains

Casita Orilla del Mar is romantic, elegant retreat one block from Santa Barbara's East Beach – one of the top 10 beaches in America according to Coastal magazine. Completely and expertly renovated in 2013, the open-plan bungalow is elegant, spacious, comfortable, flooded with light and tastefully decorated with an eclectic mix of furnishings from around the world.

The bungalow sleeps four with a queen bed in the master bedroom and a pullout double bed in the living room. French doors off of the living/dining area and the bedroom opens to an inviting, completely private patio, featuring tropical landscaping, built-in spa fitted with ceramic tiles, outdoor shower, Tranquility fountain, and outdoor dining complemented by a built-in barbeque.

The fully fitted gourmet kitchen is a cook's dream featuring top-of-the-line Jennair appliances, Sub-Zero refrigerator and in unit washer and dryer. The location is superb – with access to Santa Barbara's finest attractions, whether by car, bicycle or on foot. There is a Waterfront Shuttle and Santa Barbara Trolley for all your local sightseeing and transportation. The bungalow is within walking distance to the Santa Barbara Airbus stop, which is your transport to LAX airport.

Perfect for a family vacation or extended stay. If you are traveling in a group larger than four, please inquire about the adjoining 'Casa Orilla del Mar', (VRBO# 483330) which accommodates six people. We are dog friendly!

                                                                      This is a great place to stay. From the gourmet kitchen to the fountain in the courtyard to the cozy robes, the attention to detail created a wonderful experience. In addition, the proximity to the beach and havingTri County Produce right around the corner are great perks. There were a few little glitches, but the property managers, Clare and Penny, were both responsive and things were taken care of quickly. I highly recommend this place.

                                                                      Perfect getaway for two.

                                                                      We have already started to discuss dates for the next visit to this gateway to all Santa Barbara has to offer. A block to East Beach. Half a block to great market and half a block to great local happy hour with sunset view. With luck you will see the dolphins on an evening frolic. Apartment is private, fully equipped with everything you need ,plus a nice little outside space for coffee in the sun, evening barbecue, and there’s a hot tub. This is a quiet neighborhood but you can easily get round everywhere cheaply on local transport , which tends to end early but hey , if you want to party , Uber isn’t going to set you back much more than 10-15 dollars to or from town or the funk zone. Management team of Clare and Penny is responsive and pro active. We had to get in touch late on a Sunday night and they were both brilliant.

                                                                      Great property still waiting to be reimbursed for expenses

                                                                      Nicholas Y.

                                                                      Great place to stay, right near the beach. Clare was extremely responsive at first. But after the dryer stopped working and I repaired the toilet flapper that they said they would reimburse, I did not hear anything from her after that. Still waiting to be reimbursed.

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      An unfortunate but very realistic problem...the dryer broke during this guests stay and it was going to take several days for the repair. We compensated our guest for this inconvenience very fairly as he acknowledged.

                                                                      14 days is the approximate processing time for situations like this.

                                                                      Beautiful beach-side cottage, coudn't have been better!

                                                                      John R.

                                                                      LOVED IT!

                                                                      My wife and I had our vacation for Big Sur cancelled due to highway repairs and decided to stay in Santa Barbara last minute. The host responded in just a few hours which was great because we were scheduled to fly out to LA in 3 short days. We were bummed that our original plans fell through until we arrived at this absolutely wonderful cottage. The weather was a bit cold and gloomy the first two days but we didn't mind because I did not want to leave this house. There were beautiful fresh flowers on the kitchen counter when we arrived and the home had every amenity you could ask for with detailed instructions as well as local recommendations. They also provided us with the option to stock the fridge! The jacuzzi came in very handy since it was too cold to enjoy the ocean and the outdoor patio was a perfect setting to enjoy a glass of wine and watch the sunset. This was our first HomeAway experience and I'm not one to write reviews but I just LOVE this home and I highly recommend it for a romantic getaway. We can't wait to get back next year! (Pet Friendly as well)

                                                                      Nicole H.Redwood City, CA

                                                                      We stayed at this cute little cottage for the long Labor Day weekend. We love being so close to East Beach and right next to the TriCounty Produce market as well. It's central to everything you would want to do in Santa Barbara. Wine taste, shop, walk, bike, eat, beach comb, etc. It's all within a few minutes of this gorgeous little place. It was clearly recently remodeled and I love the thought they put in to it. It's the best use of a small space I've seen. It's tiny but doesn't feel tiny. The court yard with the hot tub, built in BBQ, fountain and dining table is perfect. It's private and secure and makes you feel like you have bigger space. The house itself is beautiful with a gorgeous and modern kitchen with top of the line appliances. The family room has a super comfortable couch that turns in to an equally comfortable queen bed. My husband fell asleep out there one night with our son and was amazing at how comfortable it was considering it was a "sofa sleeper". The bathroom is lovely with a huge rain shower and tub, two sinks and TONS of built in storage. I loved how many cabinets there were to tuck your belongings away in. There is even a nice little hanging space as you enter the bathroom. The bedroom had a very comfortable bed and large dressers with plenty of space for our clothes.

                                                                      This cottage is perfect for a family of 3 or 4 and we would definitely stay there again. If I could give it more than 5 stars, I would.

                                                                      A perfect getaway

From the convenient location , it's close proximity to long walks on the beach ,as well as downtown ,to its beautifully appointed interior you cannot find a better vacation experience away from home.

                                                                      Our communications with the management has always been seamlessly easy, making us feel very welcome.
