About Arachelle

I grew up in Santa Barbara and invite you to come visit my charming home. There is really no place like this, so spectacularly beautiful with so much to offer.

Arachelle purchased this house in 2009

Why Arachelle chose West Side

I fell in love with the house on my first visit. The neighborhood is unbelievably safe, charming and quiet but the proximity to the beaches, town center and wine country sealed the deal.

What makes this house unique

When I bought the property I updated all electrical, plumbing and remodeled and modernized all interiors, appliances and fixtures. It is a lovely home with a period feeling and modernized comforts.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Santa Barbara - what a great place. And the house is fantastic. We will miss those lovely summer evenings hanging out in the back yard. Host was very helpful and communicative. The location is great - quiet but a quick drive to wherever you need to go. Plus the bus is just around the corner and minutes to State street. We hope to visit again soon!

Wonderful gem hidden in a neighborhood

Beautiful home, with many amenities needed for a comfortable stay. Fully equipped kitchek, comfortable beds, and sweet backyard. Gas fireplace was wonderful to take the chill out of the air. Highy recommended.

Cozy and charming. Nice location close to everything.

  • 4 of 5

We had a nice time in this sweet little house. The location is quiet yet close to everything, and the back patio/garden is wonderfully lush and private. The house is stocked with a good selection of books, videos and games, which is a nice touch.

Perfect for Santa Barbara

  • 5 of 5

The house is perfect for a few people. The bedrooms are comfortable and relaxing. The property was very clean and well maintained. The neighborhood is quiet and close enough to all you want to do while visiting. We were just a few miles away from SB City College, downtown State Street for shopping and dining. The zoo, beaches, hiking and wine tasting are nearby as well.

My daughter and I really enjoyed our stay and would definitely come back again.

Lovely place, great location, friendly helpful owner.

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed in this home for a family wedding in Santa Barbara. At first I thought it a little out of the way from the main drag, then as we went to the noisy main drag, and a variety of locations, we realized what a great location the home was in. Located on a quiet neighborhood street, yet close to groceries and good restaurants. Every place we needed/wanted to go was a 4 - 7 minute drive, or a nice walk. The house has a lot of old Santa Barbara ambience and charm, and was very clean and comfortable; and though the home seems small from the outside, it is actually very spacious inside; the three bedrooms are large enough and spread out a little for a nice sense of privacy. The master bedroom is located at the back of the house, has its own bathroom, and has wonderful natural light, lots of windows and french doors that open to the secluded back yard. The back yard was lovely, like a little private oasis, nice older landscaping; and has a grill and large outdoor dinning table with chairs. The owner could not have been nicer, and seems to genuinely care about her guests and the property being nice for them.

Comfortable bungalow in quiet neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

Great little house with private backyard and off street parking. Big outdoor table with umbrella. Two bathrooms a bonus in a small house. Plenty of dishes and cooking pans. Quick uber to downtown. House was very clean and living room furniture quite comfy. Friendly host who responded quickly to our inquiry and checked with us via email during our stay. We 'd stay again.

The house is central to everything in Santa Barbara. Conveniently close to many outdoor activities, water sports, golf, biking and walking distance to the center of town and the beach and also the wine tasting rooms of the Santa Barbara Urban Wine Trail or an easy drive to wine country, Solvang and local mountains.
