Overview

About the property

1 King Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-3)

The Secret to the Secret Getaway is its location, quality and price. Why stay in the nicest hotel suite in town, when you can have much more, for significantly less money?

We are located two blocks from the Beach, Stearns Wharf, Public Pool, Harbor, world-class dining, and downtown shops, including our own local Farmers market. Leave your car and parking worries behind. We even offer RARE off street reserved parking.

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 Secret Getaway 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.

The Secret Getaway is new and resides in a historical turn of the century building that retains the charm of the day’s bygone. It has been lovingly restored to reflect the true authentic Santa Barbara style. The beautiful limestone floors, faux painting and ten feet ceilings all give it a romantic and European feeling.

The bright kitchen is fully equipped, including spices, with granite counter tops, all appliances and your own washer and dryer.

The bathroom is immaculate with custom stone work throughout, a built in Jacuzzi tub, separate large walk- in shower and Santa Barbara style cabinets with matching granite.

The living room has a Waterford fireplace, comfortable couch (queen sleeper), 42' HDTV which replaced the smaller one in the picture . Complimentary wireless internet access is also available for your convenience. The bedroom offers a king-size feather top bed with luxury linens.

The bedroom and kitchen each have eight foot glass doors that lead to the your own veranda where you can enjoy the California sun, complete with Bistro set, potted flowers and gas grill.

For your convenience we also offer private reserved parking and a washer and dryer in the Secret Getaway. Everything you need to complete your stay.

Also a helpful hint when comparing: We are not on a commercial thorough fare or next to the highway or railroad tracks. We are in a nice residential neighborhood.

perfect location.

  • 4 of 5

LOVED the location , access to the condo from everywhere, parking very good, space in the condo perfect, kitchen very awesomely stocked. Only 1 issue...... there isn't any cross ventilation in the condo unless you have the sliding door open in the bedroom and french doors opened next to the range in kitchen. We did use the floor fan. Ceiling fans 'might' be useful.

All in all, good stay!

Great accomadation

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the condo- it's beautifully furnished with solid appliances and fixtures/materials. It's very important for me to stay in a pleasant clean environment and this place definitely hits the mark and more. People- remember to log out of your Netflix/Amazon accounts if you use it... we forgot...shoreline cafe is great, mony's tacos is great too.

Perfect - Loved Everything About It!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I came in from Michigan for a few nights for a wedding. We absolutely loved staying at this location. Close to State street and the beach. Harbor Festival was going on, the weather was perfect and we rented bikes!! I would love to come back again sometime. We truly enjoyed our stay.
