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 Westside
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.

We had a great time staying in this fully equipped and spacious house. The owner Rachel was very pleasant to communicate with, too. We can highly recommend this place!
A beautiful little house in beautiful Santa Barbara
Everything went perfectly and this house was very good for three couples travelling together.
Nice garden with outside patio with table and chairs for breakfast and dinner.
1 or 2 miles away from downtown.
We would love to come again!
Stayed here at the end of July 2019 for a 3-sister getaway. We all live in areas of California that are VERY hot in the summer, and the Santa Barbara weather was perfect! It was so amazing to open the windows at night and feel those cool breezes coming through. The house, despite a few minor glitches, was very nice and comfortable. The owner has remodeled most of the house, with a very nice kitchen and two bathrooms. House interiors are painted in lovely colors, and there is quite a bit of interesting art hanging throughout the house. Linens were plentiful, beds were comfortable, kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils, pots/pans, dishes, and even a lot of kid-friendly dinnerware! The location of the house is centrally situated, and all the Santa Barbara "highlights" are easy to get to! We shopped at Lazy Acres market, which had an amazing selection of prepared foods, as well as the types of groceries you would find in a Whole Foods market. It is very close to the house (took less than 5 minutes to drive there). The owner was super responsive on the couple of issues we had with opening windows, and communicating with us about how to access the house. The only thing I would mention is that the patio furniture in the back of the house is very weathered and could use some re-finishing. I am sure it took a beating in last winter's rains! But overall the front and back yards were lovely and peaceful, with a lot of pretty plants growing about. So overall we were very happy with our stay in this cute house in a nice, quiet neighborhood. We would definitely plan to book the house again if our travels take us back to Santa Barbara!
Santa Barbara Classic
We loved this house! The yard and garden are beautiful, filled with succulents and flowering trees. The back courtyard patio is lovely for breakfast and dinner.
Inside is filled with great art and interesting vintage trinkets.
We stayed with four kids aged 9-17 and didn’t feel cramped.
The location is great too, close to shopping and the beach.
Lovely home in a well-located neighborhood.
This home is spacious and comfortable. Main attractions of SB are a very short drive away (I walked to State St. shops one afternoon, which took about half an hour). Kitchen is well-stocked. The only difficulty I ran into was the lock box, which I couldn't open at first. My millenial daughters assisted me. Rachel was attentive to phone calls and texts as well. I might also suggest that the house 'rules' seem more geared toward long-term rentals, but we were able to adjust to all expectations easily.
The check in process was easy. The beds were extremely comfortable. Backyard was clean and well maintained. Very close to the trails so my husband could go running. He also enjoyed the selection of Shakespeare plays! Quiet neighborhood. Place is exactly as described in the listing! Rachelle was very responsive to emails which was greatly appreciated.
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.
