Bright, high ceilings, new furniture & appliances, an outdoor spa, and newly landscaped front and back yards. It's a quiet oasis centrally located just a block from the main thoroughfare, State St. and a few blocks from the beach.

The space
Sunny, bright, big, and cheerful, this renovated Santa Barbara Victorian style home has 3 generously sized bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. The freshly painted interior has high ceilings and modern living spaces and bedrooms. Both bathrooms have showers, one has a claw-foot tub, too, and tile floors. Closets are in every room. The gourmet kitchen has granite countertops, a stainless steel fridge, a gas range, microwave, and dishwasher. There is central heat and a super-convenient washer and gas dryer. Outside, in addition to a deck for entertaining, there is a large, private patio, spa, grill, string lights, sunshade, and off-street parking for up to 5 cars, and additional parking on the street. The yard has a large Hass avocado tree and a sago palm as well as an abundance of other plants. This lovely home is 2 blocks to shops and dining on State St., walking distance to multiple beaches, the renowned Funk zone full of wine tasting rooms, and more.

I pride myself on going above and beyond to ensure my guests have a spectacular experience. Here are some quick stats that show how La Maison provides a uniquely high-quality experience for guests. Here's an overview of some highlights:

We have a property manager who is on call 24/7. She is always available to answer questions and addresses any issues that may arise (and does it with a smile!).

We work with the highest quality professional cleaners who make sure the house is spotless and stocked with all the things guests need to have a wonderful stay.

The property is walking distance to sunny beaches, gourmet food, outdoor activities, museums, and some of the finest wine tasting rooms in the world.

We have a professionally manicured private outdoor space complete with a sago palm tree, jacuzzi, grill, and large, well-lit patio.

The covered outdoor dining area has patio furniture that seats up to 14.

Here's a more detailed description:

With its lofty ceilings, abundance of natural light, open floor concept, and brand new renovations, La Maison has everything to provide you the relaxing vacation you are hoping for! It's uniquely located in the heart of downtown, just a block from State St. There are numerous cafes, restaurants, museums, and wine tasting rooms just a few minute's walk from La Maison. It is also a short (15 minute) walk to West Beach and Stearn's Wharf, two of Santa Barbara's most popular spots. It's here that you will find people playing volleyball on the beach, dining on local cuisine and enjoying the sunshine year-round!

La Maison offers on-site parking for 4+ cars, 3 roomy and private bedrooms with queen-sized beds, a trundle daybed with two twin-sized beds in a private sunroom, a sofa bed with a full-sized bed and 2 full bathrooms.

Location

Lower State, Santa Barbara, California

La Maison is nestled between the beach and the downtown shopping corridor. It provides an ideal balance of quiet, privacy, and access to all that Santa Barbara has to offer.

The house itself is a spacious, modern Victorian with all-new furniture and appliances. While it's a quiet oasis located in downtown SB, it is literally one block from the main thoroughfare, State St. Staying there you'll be surrounded by dozens of restaurants, wine tasting rooms, cafes, shopping, and beaches. It's the perfect getaway for families, friends, and celebrations!

La Maison is one of the few legal vacation rental properties in Santa Barbara. I believe it’s the only legal vacation rental in downtown SB that can sleep up to twelve people. If you take a look at our guest books, you'll see all the happy notes left by previous guests—people love staying at La Maison!

If you are coming for a festival, parade, special event, or just to enjoy the sights and restaurants, this is the best location out there. Enjoy our renowned Farmer's Market, a few blocks from the property, full of local organic veggies and fruits and unique flowers.

Just across the street is the Spanish Mission styled outdoor shopping and dining area Paseo Nuevo, which offers everything one can imagine in the way of handcrafted, regionally sourced food and wine. Restaurants abound along State St. along with chic bars, wine tasting venues, breweries, coffee houses, bakeries, chocolatiers and more!

A short walk or quick ride on the Santa Barbara Trolley will take you down to the pier, to East and West beaches, Los Banos swimming pool, and the Harbor, where you can hop on a boat for a whale-watching adventure, rent kayaks and paddleboards, bikes, and more!

My spouse and I dreamed of owning a hospitality focused business together and La Maison Santa Barbara is the incarnation of that dream. After nearly two years of work, we became the proud owners of this boutique vacation rental, which the City of Santa Barbara classifies as a legal hotel. We enjoy being ambassadors for our beautiful city, there is so much here to offer visitors! It is truly a special place and we can't wait to share it with you.
