Welcome to our bright & sunny 1 king bedroom & 1 full bathroom Affordable Beach Penthouse.
There are over 100 1BR/1BA vacation rentals in the 'Santa Barbara Area' and of these, 77 are supposed to be in 'Santa Barbara'. So how do you chose - location, location, location! And then compare our quality and price.
We are not in Carpentaria, Goleta, Summerland or Montecito. We are also not in the suburbs of Santa Barbara such as San Roque, Mission Canyon, Los Positas etc.
We are in the coveted Historic West Beach area, in a high end residential area, steps from the beach, Las Banos Public Pool, Stearns Wharf, Harbor, world-class dining, and downtown shops, including our own local farmers market. We are not next to the railroad tracks, highway or on a commercial thoroughfare.
Leave your car and associated traffic/parking worries behind. We even offer RARE off street reserved parking.
The Beach Penthouse resides in a historical turn of the century building and retains the charm of the day’s bygone. It has been lovingly restored to reflect Santa Barbara's style including 10 feet vaulted ceilings and whitewashed wood floors through out giving it both a romantic and European feeling.
Within blocks are a European deli and market, bakery and sandwich shop, three wineries and a grocery store leaving little need to leave the neighborhood. In addition there are bike rentals, Segway rentals, peddle surrey rentals, a skate park, the Chase Palm Park with a merry-go-round and the site of a craft fair each Sunday that lines the beach boardwalk. The Santa Barbara Zoo and the Bird Sanctuary are an easy mile and half walk. If you are traveling to Santa Barbara by train the Affordable Penthouse is two blocks from the train station and there is a car rental agency two blocks away in case you want to explore the Santa Ynez Valley wine country. If you are tired of walking, all of these attractions can be reached by a local 25 cents-a-ride shuttle bus that runs up State Street and along the ocean front from the harbor to the zoo.
Our Affordable Beach Penthouse offers 800 square feet, is newly remodeld and offers a fully equipped kitchen done in high quality construction that includes carrera marble countertops and custom cabinets along with all appliances: stove, oven, dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator, coffee machine, blender, toaster, to name a few.
The romantic bedroom offers an orthopedic king bed with a glass door that leads to a private veranda with bistro set, beach chairs and barbeque grill.
The bathroom has a shower tub combination of carrera marble and is brand new and sparking clean.
The living room offers a 42' high definition TV and adjoins the dining area and fully equipped kitchend, including a desk with complimentary wireless internet access and bright windows with City skyline views.
The Getaway also has its own washer and dryer and very rare at the beach, private reserved parking.
When you book with us, you are booking with the owners, which means you are not dealing with a management company, or a 3rd party call center, or a computerized mobile application.

Our reviews speak for themselves, including our cleanliness.
Upon booking, directions are emailed along with our contact information, Restaurant Recommendations, Winery and Activities Recommendations and Welcome Notes providing detailed information about the Affordable Penthouse are also provided. In this way, you can drive right to the Affordable Penthouse, which has a lock box where you’ll use your unique code to enter. There is no need to set up an appointment.

And we offer complimentary champagne upon your arrival.

Over the top ambiance and location
We will never stay at a hotel again in Santa Barbara. The owners are great hosts and made sure our accommodations were to our liking. We checked out several of the units and all are tastefully appointed. The bed are comfortable and the unit had everything we needed for a four night stay. The best part is the location. We walked everywhere. There is even a great brewery on the corner called The Neighborhood, fun place and great service.
Great location, has everything you need, wonderful weekend getaway!!!
Couldn't have been a better place to stay!!
Like everyone else says: good location, clean, well appointed, comfy bed. Two of us stayed for a long weekend/short week in October. Easy walk to beach or downtown, which we did every day. Fantastic. We would (will!) totally stay there again.
This is a lovely, quiet and well located apartment. Absolutely beautifully appointed with a comfortable bed and soft, rich towels. I highly recommend this apartment for a romantic get-a-way.
(The pictures don't do it justice!
Beautiful, Quiet and Relaxing
We are just getting ready to head out and loved every minute of staying at this property. We had a conference in Montecito and felt like we wanted a little more space than a hotel to enjoy our time here. This was absolutely perfect! Everything we needed, easy walk to the beach, plenty of options to get coffee or eat. And I nice relaxing, well-kept space to come back to. Would definitely pick this one again. Thank you so much!
A well-maintained, quiet, 3rd floor apartment with a great view
The apartment and complex are well- maintained, which was evident from the landscaping upon arrival. A dedicated parking spot is included with the rental. A real plus. There is no need to search for parking or inconvenience permanent residents. The unobstructed view from the living room/kitchen window is special and includes a few palm trees, mountains and provides a nice breeze. The kitchen is also very nice with new appliances, cabinets and tile. The neighbors are also very quiet. There is also a small, but clean outdoor porch that provides plenty of afternoon sun.
There are 900+ vacation rentals in the 'Santa Barbara Area'. Vacation rentals pricing follow the same trend as real estate pricing - location, location. The farther out you go out of Santa Barbara, the less expensive the real estate and the better the vacation rental pricing. We are located in the best area of Santa Barbara - the Historic West Beach Area - 2 blocks to the Beach and downtown Santa Barbara, yet not on a commercial thoroughfare, not next to the railroad tracks or not adjacent a highway. In addition to location, look at our property and compare amenities and pricing. We are unmatched.
