We came to surprise our daughter for her birthday. She ended up staying with us as she goes to the city college and it is just a mile away.<br/> <br/>The secret spot is funky and charming, so much character!The weather was beautiful and we enjoyed sitting on the upper balcony for breakfast and we sat outside by the fountain and pond for dinner. <br/><br/>We loved the location. 2 blocks to the stairs to the beach, lots of stairs , so great exercise! Also, the Douglas Family Preserve is just about 3 blocks away, a beautiful preserve with many walking trails! <br/><br/>We did our shopping at Trader Joe's and Lazy Acres. The kitchen is small but really well thought out.This is our new favorite rental!! Will definitely come back!

Reviewer Comments:
This place was amazing! We desperately wanted a quiet beach getaway - with a little wine tasting on the side - and this place delivered! The property was brilliantly decorated, well stocked with any cooking/beach accessories you might need, and insular enough to feel like our own little world. Definitely going back!

Peaceful

  • 5 of 5
The Secret Spot is a delightful and quiet little bungalow that we found very relaxing. It's just around the corner from a long staircase leading to the beach and close to downtown shopping, the wharf, the funk zone (wine tasting rooms, galleries and eateries), the Mission and about 40-50 miles from the vineyards. We spent four lovely days there and departed wanting more.

The Secret Spot was amazing. Quiet, peaceful location one block from the beach and a quick 5 minuted drive from downtown Santa Barbara. The house itself was very well decorated, clean and well-maintained. I would highly recommend staying here if you're looking for a relaxing/romantic weekend.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We didn't know the area very well and weren't sure what we were getting into with this rental. It was perfect. The price was fair and lower than many of the hotels around and we had all of the amenities that a hotel couldn't have offered, outdoor fire, huge grill, bikes and surfboards to borrow. I would not only recommend this property, but the VRBO site came through for us big time and I will use it again next time I travel.

Fun and cozya block from the beach

  • 4 of 5
Fun and artsy. The location is perfect for beach goers. Quiet and relaxing this is perfect for those who want to relax.
A short 5 minute drive to downtown.
We most definitely will return to this hidden gem.
Note that the steps to the beach are steep and plenty which is a bonus for fitness buffs.
