Stand-Alone California Cottage oozing with Santa Barbara Charm in an A+ location.

The stylishly appointed cottage features an airy full kitchen, formal dining room, cozy fireplace, on-site parking, and large outdoor living area situated just three and half blocks away from Public Beaches and the Santa Barbara Harbor. Wine tasting, art galleries and local shops in the Funk Zone are only a 15 minute walk away. The cottage is conveniently located near the train station and Freeway 101.

The space
Our cottage is perfect for guests seeking a stylish space and a true Santa Barbara experience. Red clay tiles, textured stucco, arched entries, these are some of the fundamental architectural elements that define 'Santa Barbara Architecture'; all of which can be found in the living room of our Cottage. We invite you to our Cottage for an immersive Santa Barbara design experience rooted in history of place.

The cottage is one of the first homes built in the neighborhood. It was constructed in the 1930s but, many of the original details and personal history has been retained throughout the years. The original glass door knobs, historical images of the residence/former occupants, and the old school mail slot are just some of the design details that we restored to celebrate and share the history of this home with others.

With old homes come mature trees. The rear yard features specimen trees; specifically a King Palm and a Stone Pine. You will be impressed by these trees; they are beautiful.

The Kitchen is fully equipped with full size appliances, (Dishwasher, Fridge, Range/Oven, Microwave), flatware, and utensils. There is a pour over coffee maker and we provide complimentary coffee for guests.

Each bedroom features a queen size bed, ceiling fan, alarm clock, and walk-in closet. Bathroom essentials - shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, towels - are all provided.

Small pets considered with an additional booking/cleaning fee.

The Cottage is located near a commercial area so, at times you can hear traffic, the train horn, and the fog horn. The fog horn and the train horn are actually quite charming!

Guest access
Guests have access to the entire single family residence, expansive rear yard area, and parking for up to 3 vehicles in the driveway.

Other things to note
Although the home has been refreshed and maintained throughout the years, there are some features that do not work as perfectly as if it were a new home. The bedroom/bathroom doors take a bit of effort to close, please be gentle. The water heater is located in the garage so, when it is cold outside it takes a few moments for the water to warm up.
