The Space

Welcome to "Casitas Oceano"! Our home is a charming two bedroom, two bath, recently remodeled with a modern Santa Barbara beach motif, new hard wood floors and brand new beds. Great ocean and Island view from deck/balcony. Great teak table outside for outdoor dinning.

And now Casitas Oceano is solar powered. In March of (email hidden) solar energy system was installed and will be providing clean, renewable energy for all vacationers at Casitas Oceano. Go green on vacation!!

For group larger than 7, please inquire about our over flow unit & movie room. An additional 2- 4 + people are possible to have stay comfortably. Leilany or Rory can provide more details, photos and pricing. Availability is limited to certain times of year.

Just three blocks from Shoreline Park which offers amazing beach bluff walks from a hundred feet up over rocky natural Santa Barbara beaches, a hop skip and a jump away from Leadbetter beach which offers soft sand and plenty of space along with solid surf breaks. And moments away from the Harbor featuring great restaurants and water fun.

Walking to beach and harbor is super easy and even downtown can be reached in a 20-30 minutes walk. It also one street away from the West Campus of SB City College, There is a bus stop on the corner if you need to go further. Bus stop is approximately 200 feet from the front of the property.

Being a pet owner myself I noticed it was often tough to find quality vacation rentals that would allow my dog and me to stay. My dog Aldo is a big part of my family so I encourage everyone to bring the pets - All pets are welcome! (Pet fee may apply)

If there is anything you wish out of your trip we can provide. Wine Tours? Local recommendations, hikes, islands trips, surf spots, bike trails whale watching or beaches. We are here help so please feel free to ask for recommendations!

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • My family and I (7 people) stayed here with 2 dogs (one tiny & one large) for the weekend and thought the inside of the home was clean and very cute! Although there were only two rooms, the large living room and pull out sofa couch accommodated us very well.

    The location was very close to the beach, however, there is a loud party house right next door. The smell of marijuana filled the house at night but that's not Rory's fault and hey, it's Santa Barbara, what do you expect?

    All in all the home was nice for a short weekend getaway and Rory and Leilany were very responsive and helpful during our trip.

  • We had my sisters Bachelorette party this weekend, and there were 7 of us girls, we LOVED the bungalow! It was clean, great space, great energy, kitchen was stocked with all the tools we needed, it just had this very comforting feeling to it. We could have stayed in a hotel, but this was perfect! It was the perfect getaway! The beach was within walking distance, we were only a 1.5 miles away from State Street where everything was, we really enjoyed our stay!

  • Had an awesome stay here over the weekend. Super close to the funk zone, the beach, and everywhere we wanted to be. Met Rory and he even let us take out his paddle boards. I would highly recommend staying here for a great, laid back, Santa Barbara experience. Thanks again.

  • Casitas Oceano was amazing and exactly what we were looking for! Our group of 8 stayed here comfortably and had a wonderful time, from relaxing on the patio with freshly-squeezed Valencia orange margaritas to walking to State St. for a dinner on the town (an easy 20-30 minute stroll away). Rory and Leilany were exceptionally helpful, flexible, professional and overall fantastic hosts. We will definitely be coming back!

  • We stayed at the Casita for my sisters bachelorette weekend and had a blast... the place is located close to everything and anything we needed they were quick to respond with great recommendations... This was my first time renting on Airbnb and I was a bit hesitate because I didn't quite know what to experience and this experience I am hooked. Thanks Rory!!!

  • Beautuful home to experience all the beauty, splendor and fun Santa Barbara has to offer. Casitas Oceano was the perfect home for our two families, very comfortable, clean, and a great ocean view deck for sun worshipping and evening star gazing and relaxing. Great location for proximity to the beach, pier, and downtown. Rory and Leilany were wonderful and easy to work with.
