1BR The 'Secret Spot' with an Artistic Mediterranean Tropical Feel

1BR The 'Secret Spot' with an Artistic Mediterranean Tropical Feel

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Jan 26, 2015
1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

Nestle into this 1BR, two-story artistic guest house with loads of charm and an exotic Mediterranean style inside –just right for a romantic hideaway, it’s called the “Secret Spot”. Located on ""The Mesa"", it's tucked behind the property's main house. Its private entry leads to a lush tropical and tranquil little haven nestled above another vacation rental known as the “Hidden Cove” (VRBO Listing #201036).

There are high ceilings with skylights, a natural rock fireplace, log canopy loft bed under another skylight for star gazing, stained glass windows, mood lighting for that perfect ambiance, and a travertine stone shower with dual shower heads. The kitchen downstairs if fitted with stainless steel appliances and a set of French doors leads to the deck with a mosaic bistro table that overlooks the pond and waterfall. Lush banana trees, palms, and jasmine vines create a garden area with a tranquil tropical feel and a great vibe. There is a great barbecue area in this space too.

Our property is a two minute walk to the Mesa Lane steps that go down to the beach –a favorite surfing spot. We have boogie boards, beach chairs and bicycles for you to use. We are a lovely five minute walk to the main shopping area of ""The Mesa"" where you can find groceries and numerous restaurants (Mexican, Thai, Chinese, Italian, Tapas, and American) for your enjoyment.

Amazing little zen zone

This place was just as it appears in the pictures and was warm, cozy and irrisistably cute! We stayed during the winter months so the fireplace was perfect! I would reccomend this place to anyone, it's quite a jem.

Unique but dingy

  • 3 of 5
Everything is as pictured. A very unique and special space, no doubt about it. However, some small updates would go a long way to make this space feel more current and clean. The bedding and couches seemed like they had been cleaned but were super worn so they were not very inviting. The same goes for the outdoor setting ... You didn't really want to sit anywhere.

Gem of a place!!!

  • 5 of 5
This hidden little gem is absolutely amazing. The charm and atmosphere of the Secret Spot was spectacular. Everything was extremely clean and unique. My husband and I recently got married at Elings Park and chose this gem to kick start our honeymoon. Loved everything about this place!!

A Spot with Charisma

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed this place. Conveniently located, affordable, clean, well equipped. We had the chance to meet the owners who were very personable and made us feel right at home. We were happy to be able to bring our two small dogs. We definitely will recommend this place and plan to return in the future. We renewed our appreciation for beautiful Santa Barbara.

Reviewer Comments:
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!
