The Space

You will have a very private wing of an old California ranch style house on a one acre property with private entrance, french doors opening to a patio for dining, and lovely garden setting. The kitchen is equipped with stove, fridge, microwave, coffee maker, dishes, pots and pans and comes stocked with coffee, tea, juice, half and half, sugar, breakfast pastries, butter, olive oil, bottled water both flat and sparkling.. The huge bathroom has a separate tub and large shower. This is a large studio apartment, elegantly furnished with queen size memory foam bed, high quality linens, couch, desk, flat screen satellite HDTV, Wifi, laundry facilities.

We are located on the north side of Santa Barbara in a quiet residential neighborhood with stunning mountain views, minutes from major shopping complexes with restaurants, grocery stores including Whole Foods, major department stores, Peet's Coffee, etc. Downtown Santa Barbara is a five minute drive. Major bus stops are a 15 minute walk away. It is easier if you have a car, of course.

This is a unique and charming historical property built in 1932 surrounded by mature gardens creating a private, peaceful sanctuary like setting. I look forward to welcoming you here.

I also offer a two bedroom, two bath option which you can check out under "Hacienda Magarita Suite".

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • JANET AND HACIENDA MARGARITA STUDIO WERE AMAZING! My husband and I both agree that this has been one of the best air bnb experiences. The space, amenities, positive reviews were all accurate. You will not be disappointed booking with Janet. She has a "suite" option which gets you an additional room with its own bathroom. I tried to book the suite with her before we left to schedule coming back with some friends but unfortunately she was booked. Location was also great! Thank you Janet for being (email hidden) (and for the snacks)!

  • Janet was very welcoming and coordinated well with us before and during our stay. She was very gracious and helpful with tips about the area, making sure we were comfortable, etc. yet also let us have our privacy and rest after a long drive.

    Her studio was even more amazing in person than we had expected- it's a beautiful private oasis with the most quaint and comfortable furnishings, and the gardens and patio are beautiful. We stayed only one night on a trip through Santa Barbara and wish we could've stayed for a whole week!

  • Janet's home is amazing. Beautiful house, furniture, garden and location! We really appreciated the snacks, coffee, fresh strawberry's and tangerine juice. Can't say enough about this find.

  • Janet (email hidden)e was quick to communicate and respond to questions before the booking and was available when needed during our stay.

    The hacienda studio looks exactly as pictured and is definitely a santa barbara home. It is furnished with all of the essentials such as bed, couch, desk, and dining table. In addition, Janet provided us with waters, sparklin water, fruit, and snacks!
    The location is central to SB and guests definitely need a car to get around town

    I would definitely recommend this place to other guests!

  • The place was larger than I anticipated. It was clean and private. The location was about 5-10 minutes from downtown Santa Barbara (no freeway needed) I loved the amenities- water, snacks, plates, plates and pans. My boyfriend and I cooked breakfast and ate it overlooking Janet's gorgeous garden and spectacular mountain views. It was very Zen. Janet was friendly, and interesting. She gave us our space. I will definitely be returning sooner than later.

  • The stay was unbelievably amazing and fabulous. The property is stunningly beautiful with an abundance of lovely trees and delicate floral arrangements. Janet the host made us feel so comfortable and welcome. She has all of the niceties of a pampered stay. The studio apartment is equipped with a nice fridge, stove, coffee maker and pans, dishes and utensils. The decor is beautiful beyond description. The location is also very accessible to all of the wonders and cuisine in Santa Barbara.

  • Janet (email hidden) who really went above and beyond in making our stay comfortable and special. We were not want of anything with plenty of snacks, water, and even soaps. The location was splendid, Janet keeps a beautiful and wonderful garden with many places for us to laze about and soak up the sunshine. Overall experience: 10/10.

  • I could not have been more comfortable and happier with my stay at the Hacienda Margarita. The apartment is beautifully outfitted, the surrounding gardens simply divine and the host an absolute pleasure to be around.
    I felt very private and respected, yet connected.
    The location is quiet, yet with everything close that you may need.
    I am looking forward to another stay with Janet

I am a long time Santa Barbara resident and have had this property for 25 years. As a professional landscaper I enjoy creating a garden setting for beauty and privacy. I am single, love to travel and do so often. I have lived in Kathmandu, and traveled extensively in Asia. Mexico is also a frequent destination. I enjoy hosting guests and making sure they are comfortable here at Hacienda Margarita.
