Welcome to our 1930's Spanish style bungalow in downtown Santa Barbara! Casa Verano is located in a quiet but centrally located Santa Barbara neighborhood. It is less than two miles to the beach or the bars, restaurants and shops of State Street. Just steps from the property you can catch the crosstown trolly to State Street on weekdays. There also is a waterfront trolly you can hop on from there that runs down State Street to Stearns Wharf where there is great access to the Harbor, Funk Zone wine and beer tasting rooms and Chase Palm Park. Also within two miles is Cottage Hospital, The Santa Barbara Mission and Rose Garden. There are great hiking trails in the area and if you like to get a workout in you can go on a nice roundtrip jog up to Elings Park and take in the ocean views. Two bicycles are available for getting around and we provide beach towels and a picnic basket, great for spending a day at the beach or up at the Rose Garden. Fresh clean linens, comfortable bedding, and bright decor make it an inviting space for a getaway. The deck gets wonderful sunlight all day long and is perfect to sit and enjoy your morning coffee. We have a Keurig coffee maker with various drink choices and also stock the mini fridge with some cold beverages. Provided are dishes, utensils, cups and mugs along with some counter space in the kitchenette. Please note there are no other kitchen or cooking amenities. Max occupancy is two guests, please no children (under 13). We cannot make exceptions as this is due to our insurance policy. No smoking on the property and no pets please.

I had a wonderful time at Casa Verano! The setting was comfortable, homey, and private. Inside the room, there were plenty of reminders of the house rules so we wouldn't forget anything. There was plenty of informative brochures and books about the city that were very helpful. The place was very clean and well kept and had everything needed. The bed was amazing! Also, the Keurig and hot tub were clutch.
We had such a great stay at Casa Verano! The whole experience is set up so efficiently, it's truly like staying in a hotel. The private hot tub was such a fantastic plus! Thanks again Carol & Aaron!
Great experience staying at Casa Verano. The room was exactly as described and very comfortable. Both the bed and hot tub were enjoyable and relaxing. Location was also pretty central to most places you would want to visit in SB. Hosts did a wonderful job explaining everything thoroughly so we knew what to expect and check in /check out was very simple.
We had a lovely relaxing time at Casa Verano. The beach towels/bag etc was a welcome addition. Everything was spotless and super organised...it made our short stay in Santa Barbara the perfect experience! Would highly recommend.
The room was nice and clean. Private jacuzzi was clean and nice especially after a long drive :).
About the Host, Carolyn And Aaron
Hi there. Glad you stopped by and took some time to read our profile. We love living in Santa Barbara and feel so fortunate to call our little 30s bungalow our own. When we bought the house, it was in need of some serious updating and TLC. Over the years it's been quite a few different styles and shades, from a funky blue to canary yellow. Since owning it we have striven to give it a sense of oneness while trying to maintain its unique personality. Casa Verano is our attempt at capturing that quintessential mishmash of styles, vegetation, and design that is so Santa Barbara. At first it was a hobby. Now it is a passion living here.
Sunday morning Mimosas with breakfast at Mesa Cafe, playing in the surf at Hendry's Beach with our two awesome miniature pinschers, taking scenic drives through Hope Ranch to watch the sun set over an endless Pacific, and the smell of Santa Maria Tri-Tip on the grill with a Margarita in hand: that is home for us. That is Santa Barbara living! Come stay at Casa Verano and you will see what we mean.
