About David Bolton

I am a former TV sports director and producer who spent 25 years travelling the world covering live events. I have stayed in many hotels, and when we decided to do a vacation rental, we worked hard to bring the same quality and comfort that I remembered from some of our best hotel stays. Lately, I have focused my career on working to preserve the 21 Spanish missions of California. We are available to provide a historical walking tour of downtown Santa Barbara during your stay. Inquire about available dates, and we would be happy to include you in this memorable walk through the historic heart of downtown Santa Barbara.

David Bolton purchased this studio in 1999

Why David Bolton chose Santa Barbara

I chose this property because of its unique location in the center of Santa Barbara's former Italian neighborhood. The craftsman-style homes in this area allowed us to create three quality units all with historic features and a relaxing feel. This block is ideal as we are just a 5 block walk to the heart of downtown, but yet 2-3 blocks removed from the bustle of the busy downtown sector. You are close enough to walk to town, but yet a bit removed to avoid the evening noise that our downtown sometimes have. In the other direction, we are just 6-7 blocks to the Beach. The location is ideal, convenient and perfect for enjoying the best of Santa Barbara. The eastside of downtown Santa Barbara also provides for spectacular views of the American Riviera. It's a historic neighborhood, and suited well for a memorable visit to Santa Barbara.

What makes this studio unique

A quiet neighborhood, the charm of vaulted ceiling Craftsman houses, tremendous views of the mountains, hardwood floors, mature vegetation and a super location just on the edge of downtown Santa Barbara.

Great place, with one little issue...

  • 5 of 5

This place is great. Very clean, spacious for a small place, good location, etc.. The only issue is parking. The entire weekend my parents were there we could not get street parking close by, sometimes not even on the same block. There are lots of red no parking zones in front of the place. We would unload the car on the driveway, then go park it. Depending on your car use, this issue may or may not be an issue. For my mom, who has a leg injury, it was a bit of a challenge. That said, we absolutely would stay there again.

Owner's Response: Thanks Ryan for taking the time to write a review. We are very glad that you enjoyed the unit. For the price and quality, we fell it is the best deal in Santa Barbara. The Holidays crimp the parking a bit due to everyone having family and friends over. We look forward to having your parents back.

Had a great stay here for a long wedding weekend, booked this and another apartment on the same property for family and it was a great set up for all of us and a toddler. Had everything we needed and the owner was very responsive and helpful!

Enjoyed our stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a nice stay here. The room was big and the bed was comfortable and the bathroom was super nice. We enjoyed that the place was a short walk to downtown and super convenient parking and location. The place was overall quiet. I was worried when we walked up because the front house was playing super loud music but once we got inside, we could not hear it through the walls.

The only cons were that the tv didn't have many channels and we did not see how to play a movie. The other con was that the upstairs patio is right above the bedroom, and we woke up at 2am the first night because the couple above us was having a screaming fight - otherwise I don't think we would've heard the other people at all.

The junior suite was a perfect size for my daughter and me. It was clean, well appointed and the bed was very comfortable. We felt safe and the house is in walking distance to great SB spots. Would stay here again any time.

Fabulous Stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful time at the property!! It was so clean and cute. We walked to The Shop Cafe every morning for breakfast which was our favorite place to eat while in Santa Barbara! David was very quick to respond to any questions I had and check in and check out was a breeze! Thank you!! We would definitely love to stay again sometime!
