This storied area located between the Pacific Ocean and Hwy 101 has exploded into a contemporary Santa Barbara sub-culture of artisan shops, art galleries, hip eateries and micro-breweries. Artists, surfboard shapers, winemakers and up-and-coming chefs have taken up shop in aged warehouses and forgotten scuba shops, transforming the zone into an understated array of hidden hot spots along the California Central Coast.
It's easy to get to and from the Funk Zone. Cruise on foot, bike from downtown or catch a pedicab. You can also easily access the freeway, hop of the waterfront shuttle or take the Amtrak-the train station is conveniently located in the heart of the Funk Zone. Parking is located in a secure covered parking lot.

We loved everything about this beautiful loft in Santa Barbara! The space is sunny and welcoming- it was perfect for two people. We loved the contemporary style of the condo and the neighborhood had a lot to offer. There were lots of nearby wine bars and restaurants that we wanted to try. The bathroom was so spacious and had an amazing view of the mountains- it was like visiting a spa!
Karl was an excellent host and he greeted us as soon as we arrived. He provided us with everything we could possibly need for the weekend, including drinks and snacks! The parking spot in the building was very convenient too. We would definitely recommend staying here if you're visiting Santa Barbara!
Karl was a generous and helpful host. He made us very welcome. He left us a well stocked refrigerator and fresh cut flowers. He even offered to lend us chairs and a sun umbrella to take to the beach. The apartment is bright and well appointed with a balcony to sit out on. We were particularly grateful for the luandry facilities as we had been travelling for some time. There was however no TV (which was no problem for us). The location is very convenient. It is two blocks from the beach and two blocks from State Street and in the middle of the wine tasting district with a number of restaurants within walking district. The garage parking was very useful.
Karl is a wonderful host! Upon arrival, we found the fridge thoughtfully supplied with yummy and fresh provisions. The apartment was gorgeous and immaculate.
Great neighborhood and fantastic host. Karl welcomed us at check-in with some recommendations for local restaurants and weekend activities. It was our first time exploring the Funk Zone, and we loved it. The location is prime -- surrounded by wine tasting rooms and delicious food, and just a quick walk down to the beach. The apartment itself was amazing -- beautifully designed and decorated, with a modern yet cozy vibe. The fridge was thoughtfully stocked with fresh fruit from the farmer's market. Karl was hospitable, professional, and responsive. Already looking forward to our next visit!
Karl is the nicest! And the loft is fantastic! A great location, a clean place - I couldn't have asked for anything more. I felt right at home. Karl was super responsive and I would definitely stay there again. Thank you so much Karl!
Karl was easy to connect with and always prompt and attentive in communication. He was very accommodating with arrival/departure time so it made the transition to settle easy. After a day of travel it was nice to be welcomed with warm conversation and a snack.
We were in town for a few days and really wanted to explore the area like a local. Karl provided a wealth of information for local venues and offered many great recommendations. The loft location was perfect because it was an easy walk to the beach and downtown. The space was clean, open, and best of all; full of natural light and air. If you are a light-sensitive sleeper I'd recommend bringing an eye mask as it can be bright in the mornings.
Thanks for opening up your home and being a great host while we explored your town!
We had a lovely time. The loft is in a great location in the Funk Zone. Karl was a wonderful host, he met us on arrival, gave us a tour and some maps of the area and gave us some good tips on places to see.
