Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

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. Often times the 3rd party does not live in town or even know the property. We know our properties intimately, as we both own and manage them, and have a 15 year track record. 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. Inside, you'll enjoy premium amenities: shampoo, soaps, paper & cleaning products and 5 star quality towels, linens and cleanliness.

And we offer complimentary champagne upon your arrival.

We welcome a comparison to the 100+ vacation rentals and Hotels as we are unmatched in location, quality and price!

July 4th Holiday

Great location, comfortable space and had everything we needed. Parking spaces a bit tight for large SUV's but doable. Would definitely rent the property again.

Our stay was so wonderful! We loved everything about this property. It exceeded our expectations.

  • 5 of 5

The comfort, quality, and airy feel of this superior penthouse was a welcome retreat. I loved it! Nice walk to beach and town, in lovely neighborhood with private sunning balcony. Peace and beauty. I really appreciated the high end details. Better in person than in the pictures! Thank you!! We will return!

This is the best place we've ever stayed in Santa Barbara

  • 5 of 5

We've come to think of this as a home away from home. We walked the 2 1/2 blocks to Toma last night, arguably the best restaurant in SB. Lark was about six blocks away, a delightful stroll on a summer evening. The 3rd storey view of SB and the mountains behind it, with the 70' tall palms across the street is always captivating, on this quiet, residential street. Melanie and Todd are always responsive, but, in truth, our contacts with them are usually about something we've done. . . "We didn't have the dishwasher door totally closed, so no wonder it didn't light up. . ."

Wonderful Wedding Suite

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was amazing, and we had a fabulous weekend with the extended family taking up other units in the building. Things were a little warm in the afternoons, as there are no fans or AC, but the ocean breeze would help clear things out by sundown. Being on the third level, the view of the morning sunrise over the mountains was fabulous, and breakfast coffee on the balcony was sublime. Plenty of space for two newlyweds, and the location could not be beat for access to the town. We will definitely keep this space bookmarked for the future.

Car: not necessary

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.
