About this listing
Our home is perfect for a family of four or two couples/friends looking to explore Santa Barbara. It is conveniently located and less than 10 minutes away from most major attractions.
The home features 2 bedrooms, a master with a queen bed and a full bed in the second room. The second bedroom has sweeping views of downtown Santa Barbara and the mountains.
Enjoy the great Santa Barbara weather by barbecuing for friends in the quaint patio area.
Guests will have access to two pools in the community, a 'quiet pool/spa/sauna' and a kid-friendly pool.
There are two free parking spots available during your stay.
Guests may enjoy the cable TV with HDMI cable and free wireless internet.
All linens, towels (beach and bath), cooking utensils and place settings are included among other amenities. There will be toilet paper and paper towels provided at the beginning of your stay.
Although no one will be on-site during your stay, we are always available via email/phone!
Enjoy a vibrant downtown scene or have a relaxing day at the beach, both just a mile away.
The Mesa is a neighborhood right up the street that is a short walk if you want to enjoy some fun restaurants. We provide a guestbook with some of our favorite places to go!
If you are looking to explore the vineyards in the Valley, we highly recommend taking a tour with Captain Jacks! You can take one of their planned tours or create your own.
If the valley is too much of a trek, check out the Santa Barbara Funk Zone, located downtown. The Funk Zone has over 25 wine/beer tasting rooms that are all walking distance from each other. The first Saturday of each month also features an art walk, so you may enjoy some wine and art with the locals.
Although there is a short hiking trail in our neighborhood, we encourage you to explore the numerous beautiful hikes Santa Barbara has to offer. Our guestbook features a great resource for finding the best hikes in Santa Barbara County.
The hybrid city bus picks you up right outside of our neighborhood on the main road (a schedule is provided). For a private ride, a taxi will cost about $8 to get downtown. Uber and Lyft are also available.
We know that you will enjoy our beloved abode as much as we have, but do ask that you follow a few rules:
Please do not smoke inside the house, although smoking outside in the back patio is permitted.
We love and respect our community, please no loud music or voices after 10pm. The community pool and spa also close at 10pm.
We kindly ask that you remove your shoes upon entry. The carpet will be forever grateful!
You will receive two keys and a parking placard for an additional car space. If either of these are lost, the cost to replace will be taken from the security deposit.
Check in time is at 3pm and check out time is 11am.
We love our furry friends, but unfortunately do not accept them in the rental.
Enjoy your time in Santa Barbara!

We really enjoyed staying in this home. It was very clean and organized.
The house is beautiful, clean and spacious. It also has really beautiful downtown view. It's a great experience.
Was a very warm place that felt cozy and like home. Great location. Good hosts. Plenty of room in the living room.
Das Haus entspricht komplett der Beschreibung. Es ist sehr liebevoll und gemütlich eingerichtet. Alles war sehr sauber.
Man hat einen fantastischen Blick auf die Stadt.
Die Kommunikation klappte bestens, auf Emails wurde sehr schnell geantwortet.
Wir bekamen bei unserer Ankunft eine Menge nützlicher Informationen.
Lovely safe location, ten mins from downtown and the beach. Wonderfully clean and spacious. Pool was a great added bonus. Thanks
We (family of four) stayed for a week in the appartment of Hillary and Edgar, and we can definitely recommend the place. Al the information proved to be correct: the appartment is clean, spacious and well equiped, and is situated close to the beached and to downtown Santa Barbara. Hillary was stand-by to answer all our questions via email. We had a wonderful week!
Everything went smoothly after a long trip! We found everything we needed, and it was much more spacious than staying in a hotel.
