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
  • I really recommend staying at Janets studio! The studio is very cozy, clean, quiet (we slept really well) and spacious. The bathroom is spacious with a very nice shower. Janets patios are also really nice and sundrenched. Janet was a great host, making sure that we really enjoyed our stay and that we had everything we needed. We are very satisfied with our stay at the hacienda margarita studio apt!

  • We had a wonderful time staying at Janet's place. Her quite and peaceful home was the perfect getaway from town's craziness.

  • We had such a lovely stay at Janet's studio apartment. Walking onto the property we immediately felt at peace. Janet has a gorgeous garden and back yard. The space, although connected to her home, felt private and secluded. Everything was very clean and she even left little snacks and coffee for the morning. My mom and I did not want to leave! I would definitely recommend staying at Janet's hacienda margarita studio.

    Response from Janet:

    Thank you for the lovely review, Emma. I appreciate your kind words and hope to see you back one of these days. All the best to your Mom.

  • Janet was a wonderful and thoughtful host. She is easy to talk to and very accommodating. She has designed the Hacienda with everything one needs to be completely comfortable and her extra touches make one feel very cared for. The room is spacious, and the decor beautiful and inspiring. All the views on the property are lovely and the gardens are glorious and well tended. The space feels very sacred and quiet. It's about 4 miles from downtown--nice to be out of the hustle and bustle and appreciate the ranch style of Santa Barbara.

    Response from Janet:

    Dear Vanessa, Thank you for such a lovely review. I appreciate it very much and hope our paths cross again soon. Best wishes, Janet

  • The Hacienda Margarita property is beyond stunning, and felt instantly like home. Janet keeps her home extremely clean and well stocked! The place is decorated beautifully and the landscaping is simply wonderful. I highly suggest staying here, my only regret was not spending more time at the house, and enjoying the lovely patio (shown in the photos)! We will without question return for our next trip to Santa Barbara. Thanks, Janet!

  • The Hacienda is a piece of paradise while providing the comforts of home. The Apt was extremely spacious with excellent outdoor space to relax and soak in the SB sun. Janet provides every detail from pots and pans to bubbly water after a day on State Street. Janet is a wonderful host providing complete privacy and yet approachable with any questions. We look forward to our next stay!

  • Janet's place was lovely. The studio, while attached to the house, felt like a separate home; very comfortable and quiet. Janet made us feel very welcome, even had a few breakfast goodies including fresh strawberries for us. The studio was spacious and had everything we needed.

  • Like others before us we found Janet to be a wonderful host and we loved staying at her beautiful property in Santa Barbara. Whenever we travel to SBA in the future and need a place to stay, we'll be looking to see if her place is available.

  • We didn't want to leave. The studio apt. had become our home and suited us perfectly. The room is spacious with lots of windows. There's a closet, and drawers for clothes and other belongings. Since the studio is set up for guests, there are no personal items that belong to the host. It was all ours. The desk was large enough for both our laptops. The bathroom is large and recently redone. All nice and fresh with drawers and cabinets to store things. The heating kept us warm during the cool mornings and chilly evenings. The view out the French doors is to the back garden and makes a lovely scene to start the day. The front of the house faces the mountains which are right there. Quite dramatic. We slept well, the neighborhood being quiet and peaceful. With Whole Foods nearby we were able to have good meals at the studio. Janet had left breakfast items for us which lasted for most of our stay. The cooking space is limited and takes some coordination though I was able to bake a cake and make a soup from scratch. We were disappointed we didn't have more time to talk with Janet. She was so welcoming and gracious. Janet's dog, Puppy, is a sweetie. It's always nice to have a pet fix when away from home. We have fond memories of our stay. We would go back and recommend Hacienda Margarita.

  • Janet was an excellent and charming host. Communication was perfect, and we were greeted warmly. The grounds were extraordinarily beautiful and peaceful. The apartment was lovely, comfortably appointed. Really cool bathroom. Everything was as perfect as could be. We regret only having had one night to stay. This time. But we'll be back! We are so looking forward to a longer stay.

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.
