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".

We enjoyed our stay at Janet's Place. The apartment is clean and spacious and has everything one needs for a comfortable stay. The area is quiet, the garden is pretty with lots of comfy seating and outside dining facilities. It's perfect for sunbathing during the day, and star-gazing at night. We recommend Janet's Place.

Janet's place is simply beautiful and exceeded our expectations. Such a tranquil location and our accommodation had everything we needed - it felt like a little home away from home. Would definitely recommend this property to any couple thinking of staying in Santa Barbara. We loved it so much we may well return some day

Our week was not long enough! I cannot over emphasize the beauty of the outdoor spaces. Have coffee in the sun looking out at the mountains. Lounge on the deck looking over gorgeous gardens. The studio is extremely quiet and private and no detail is overlooked. The gardens and outdoor spaces do not have a match. Jasmine, orange blossoms, roses and irises are all gorgeous. We will definitely be back!

Janet's home is a nice quiet comfortable place to base while exploring Santa Barbara. We've been coming to Santa Barbara for years & we've stayed everywhere...and we choose Janet's. It's nice.

Great place to stay in Santa Barbara! Quiet, peaceful, yet close to the action. Very comfortable place, with a great memory foam bed. Lots of nice little touches (like using natural cleaners, for example). Lovely garden access. Highly recommend.

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.
