About This Listing
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".
I ask that you respect the privacy of others living on this property by keeping noise levels down.
I stayed at Hacienda Margarita for two nights while visiting Santa Barbara for a wedding. The guest wing was exactly as shown in the listing, with beautiful, tranquil and fragrant gardens encircling the house. It was very comfortable, fresh and clean. The bathroom was spacious and was stocked with shampoo and soaps and plenty of towels. The kitchen was unobtrusive and spotless, and generously provided with fruits, coffee and half and half. The wing has a separate, private entrance. This was a completely positive experience and if I return to SB I will definitely stay at Hacienda Margarita.
My husband, little son and I had a wonderful stay at Hacienda Margarita. Janet is the perfect host - warm and welcoming and we never felt like 'guests' but more like family!
Hacienda Margarita is located in a beautiful area of SB. It is close to Vons, Starbucks, Whole Foods etc. and downtown and the beach is a 10-15 minute car ride.
The studio has everything you need and is decorated in a lovely way. The kitchenette is not big but has everything for preparing a small meal and breakfast.
The patio is just lovely and has sun all day, and we loved having a glass of wine there in the evening overlooking Janet's wonderful garden.
I would love to come back to SB and Hacienda Margarita!
We loved our stay here. The studio is even nicer and larger than it appears in the photos. And the grounds are beautiful. We didn't want to leave! Janet goes above and beyond providing grocery staples and some treats like breakfast baked goods, fruit and nuts! This is a real find!!
Janet was wonderful and the Hacienda was perfect! The property is just gorgeous. Janet was warm and welcoming and provided some extras that really enhanced our stay - bath salts, fresh juice and scones, additional snacks and fruit. Janet was available but we felt like we had privacy. Some neighborhood noise that is a normal part of staying in a neighborhood. We would definitely stay here again!
Janet is such an amazing host, and how unfortunate that we could only spend two nights at her more than beautiful studio with an extraordinary garden in Santa Barbara. The studio had everything we needed with a super comfortable bed and a large and super clean bathroom. She had prepared for us in the kitchen a bowl, in which there were all kinds of fruits, including the tiny and delicious clementines from the garden. In the bathroom, there were everything we might need, more than a luxurious hotel bathroom. The doors of the studio open to a backyard where you would feel totally relaxed. It's not only that the house with its garden and view is superb in every single detail, but also I think it's Janet's energy that makes the house so comfortable and peaceful. Just like her adorable dog, with whom we've become friends and who has made our stay more fun. Thank you Janet, for creating such an amazing place, sharing it with others, and being so welcoming!
Everything was easy regarding contact and check in. Janet is welcoming and she had everything you could need handy. The studio is large and very lovely and comfortable and in a great location. We would highly recommend this cottage.

About the Host, 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.
