Why Bunny DeLorie chose West Beach
The location is super! 2 blocks to the beach, Harbor and Breakwater. The property is a darling petite 1928 Craftsman Cottage and we just could not resist purchasing it and turning it into a wonderful home-away-from-home.
What makes this Cottage unique
Single family home with a private backyard with deck. Charming neighborhood named West Beach. Walk 2 blocks to the beach, Harbor and Breakwater. The location is super. The Cottage is very comfortable and decorated beautifully. Warm bamboo floors, soothing paint colors which were inspired by the pearl watery greens and ocean blues of the inside of an abalone shell. The living room features a fireplace with gas insert, flat screen TV with DISH Network. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything needed and all modern conveniences. The Cottage has a large master bedroom with french doors to backyard deck and a full bathroom with double sinks and tub-shower. A second bathroom has a shower.

Relaxing stay for a family of 5
We (two parents and 3 teens) had a lovely stay for a week at the Beach Bunny Cottage. The cottage was exactly as described and shown in photos, convenient to the beach and downtown shopping and restaurants. It was a very comfortable, clean, well-equipped, and charming place.
Bunny was a fantastic host, very responsive and helpful with questions by text during the week, and made check-in and check-out fast and easy.
We were pushing it with our numbers (5), especially as the upstairs sleeping loft was tight / low-ceilinged for our teens, but Bunny kindly set up the additional Aerobed, the kids managed the sleeping arrangements, and it was the perfect place for us otherwise.
I'd highly recommend!
Cottage and host are highly recommended!
This is our second time staying at this cottage. In all of our travels, it is one of our two most favorite places to stay.
Everything about our December 2018 review remains true for this year. At that time we wrote: “This cottage is an absolute delight! We had a wonderful time and the cottage is largely responsible for that. It is lovingly decorated, unusually well equipped, and extremely comfortable. (You may have some of your best sleep on the king sized bed, and the couch is so comfy that it’s just what you need after a long day exploring Santa Barbara.) The cottage feels very roomy – the bedroom is particularly spacious – and there is also a loft with additional beds. There is one full bath plus a second ¾ bath with a shower, which was extremely convenient for us. The bedroom opens onto a relaxing patio surrounded by bamboo trees, a great place to sit in the afternoon. Of course, one of the cottage’s biggest plusses is its location. It’s just a few blocks from the waterfront, an easy walk to the marina, the breakwater, the beaches, and the wharf. It’s also an easy walk to State Street and Santa Barbara’s charming downtown shopping district. Bunny is the perfect host. She met us when we arrived and showed us around the cottage pointing out all its features. She was available by text and phone throughout our stay and was extremely accommodating. All in all, we couldn’t recommend the Beach Bunny Cottage more highly! It really is the perfect place to stay in Santa Barbara and we hope to return every year.”
This year’s update is that, since this is our second time there, Bunny did not need to meet us to show us around and made it easy for us to get in with a lockbox. In addition, our adult son stayed with us for several days on this trip and the upstairs loft was perfect for him. Once again, we couldn’t recommend this delightful cottage and wonderful host more highly!
We LOVE our repeat guests as you are the best testimonial ever! Looking forward to seeing you all again in 2020!
