About the property

Santa Barbara Vacation Rentals is pleased to introduce this beautiful home that boasts Craftsman Style Architecture and borders Santa Barbara's world renowned East Beach. This historic property was built around 1912 and was once used as the Santa Barbara Yacht Club, however, in recent years, was one of the most established Bed & Breakfasts in Santa Barbara with nearly 30 years of clientele. The unique beach location that is just one block from East Beach and walking distance to Stearns Wharf and downtown, is ideally located for guests who are seeking an authentic beach experience in idyllic Santa Barbara. All 5 bedrooms in the main home have an en-suite bath and are comfortably furnished with antiques, oriental rugs, colorful fabrics and wallpapers that capture the warm hospitality of this charming vacation rental. There is also a separate guest cottage that sleeps up to 3 guests and features a newly renovated bathroom and kitchen.

As you walk up the steps to your vacation rental, you may be inclined to stop on the front porch and enjoy the comfortable atmosphere that provides plenty of seating for guests, this is one feature of the home that offers a true Craftsman style experience. The first floor of the house is warm and inviting with a large family room that boasts a gas fireplace, comfortable seating, a large flat screen television and a spacious dining room. There is a fully stocked kitchen with a commercial grade refrigerator, large stove top and all the essentials you would need to cook a family dinner. There are 3 master suites in the property with the first being on the ground floor. The spacious master on the first floor is the only room downstairs and has a king-size bed, en-suite bath and a nice size porch that is perfect for relaxing after the beach or enjoying a nice book. The second level of the home has two master suites and two guest rooms that each have their own name, like "Portofino" so that guests staying at the B&B could identify their rooms. The two master suites on the second floor each have their own balcony that capture a Mountain View, king-size beds and en-suite baths. Both guest bedrooms on the second level have queen-size beds and en-suite baths. All rooms in the house are tastefully and comfortably decorated giving you a home-away-from feeling.

There is additional sleeping arrangements for up to 3 more guests in the Old Yacht Club Inn Cottage that is directly behind the Old Yacht Club Inn. It's a one bedroom cottage that features a king-size bed and a separate study with a twin day-bed. The cottage also has a newly renovated bathroom with a soaking tub and newly renovated kitchen that is stocked with everything you need to cook a meal. The cottage is ideal for members of the group who desire a little more privacy and space from the main house.

In addition to the comfortable living space that this Santa Barbara Vacation Rental has to offer, guests will surely enjoy the close proximity to many local attractions like the Santa Barbara Zoo, Bird Refuge, Cabrillo Arts Pavilion, East Beach Grill, and volleyball courts that are all just minutes away by foot. You can also catch the trolley that runs along Cabrillo Boulevard and get a lift downtown for a small fee of $.50. Guests can also use the beach cruiser bikes that are provided and take the bike path along east and west beach which houses some of the best shops, galleries and restaurants that Santa Barbara has to offer.

Santa Barbara Vacation Rentals' Concierge Service is available as well as numerous other services to assure that you will have the experience of a lifetime in beautiful Santa Barbara.

Great location, but it's really OLD

  • 2 of 5

My family stayed there over 4th of July and it was a great location--near the beach, zoo, and waterfront shuttle. Plenty of things to entertain a group of 10 (ages ranging from 3 to 83) and even got some great views of the fireworks show.

The property itself is quite old (for the amount you pay). The floors and doors were very creaky, making noises at every move you make. Also, there are trains that run near the property blowing their horns at all hours of the day (i.e. 4:45am and 10:45pm). Lastly, we rented out the entire house, but we found on numerous occasions that random people would feel free to sit on our front porch and hang out--like bring their bottle of wine and drink. We had to ask people to leave multiple times, which is a bit intimidating!

Misleading photos. Rude manager and a snoopy owner

  • 2 of 5

this is a B - house charging A+ rent. Guests are treated as nuisances no matter how well behaved and how little help they need It gets a two star rating instead of one star because of its great location

The Inn is a nice place to stay - and the location is terrific.

  • 3 of 5

The property is great and if you have questions/issues the response is immediate. I would suggest the following: Kleenex in every bedroom; additional soaps in every bathroom; a few nice warm throws in the living room; garbage bags for the kitchen; updated bikes; and in the refrigerator, some fizzy water and apples for the guests.

Great House

  • 5 of 5

5 couples when up for 3 nights in Santa Barbara for New Years. House was perfect. Each bedroom had a private full bath. Great open living room and awesome deck. Close to State Street and the Pier and has beach cruisers to ride. Only bad part, no dogs.
