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.

Hard to beat this place.
Everything is so well done. Quality fixtures and materials went into this place. Bathroom great, Bed comfortable, Sitting area just right, well stocked kitchen that had everything if we wanted to cook or grill. Perfect location. Beach close, good Mexican food around the corner, park across the street. Restaurants everywhere . Quiet after 10PM.
Stayed a lot of places but can't remember one this well done.
The location is great. It was handy to walk to the beach and downtown. We rarely needed our car. The accommodations were very nice. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was a real plus. Having a washer and dryer there was so convenient. We will certainly return.
We have stayed at various units in this building and this is our favorite! It is spacious, well designed and appointed and feels so luxurious! We will be back I'm sure!!
Great location, easy parking,clean,well furnished, responsive to minor problems in 2-3 hours. No major problems. Great directions
This unit was very clean and looks as if it was remodeled recently. The facility itself was a little noisy and the bedroom was right below an upstairs bathroom, so 'flushing' was evident. But, this unit still warrants a 5 star rating if for no other reason then the cleanliness and comfort. Reservations went like clockwork! Yes, I would stay there again!!
Very Nice Condo
This was my second time staying in this condo. The location is perfect and the unit itself is just lovely. It has very nice bed linens and soft, cushy towels in the bathroom. The kitchen is well equipped as well, although I didn't do any cooking. Since this is an interior unit it is very quiet, there is no street noise at all. I definitely recommend this condo during cooler times of the year (during the summer it was very hot).
