About the Owner

I have been a professional artist all of my life and I grew up in this house. Turning it into vacation rentals was a labor of love. It is a family run business: Gramma Shirley moved out of her home in order to convert the house to vacation rentals. Cousin Laura is the Property Manager and Concierge. Nephew Jon sometimes handles reservations (I do too) We all enjoy and appreciate our very special guests.

PS -- we don't really speak 19 languages but we can google translate like crazy.

Perfect location, extremely charming!!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just absolutely loved this property. It was very close to both the beach and a block away from all the ammenities of state street with its great shopping and restaurant! The unit itself was so charming with everything you could ask for! Fully stocked kitchen, great layout. We really enjoyed the use of the bicycles to get around. We parked the car and it didn't move all weekend. We took quite a few rides threw downtown and to the beach. The unit had a really adorable court yard area with BBQ grill that we put to good use. The staff was very accomodating to our needs. The unit had two really large flatscreen t.v.'s (one of which swiveled for viewing in the kitchen or living room)! Such a great find. This was a spontaneous trip and we are so happy that we found this location. We will definitely be back and would highly recommend this to anyone that wants to have a great Santa Barbara experience.

Close to the pulse of Santa Barbara

Mam Dux was just like the photos on the VRBO site. Lush and comfortable, the suite had everything we needed. Noise from the one-way street (Guterierrez) took some getting used to, but we adapted. We were steps away from great shopping, a farmers market ( our favorite experience ) and The French Press, the best espresso bar this side of Portland ! We would definitely recommends this to all our friends and family. Laura was a fine host and did a great job giving us suggestions for dining and exploring. Loved this place !

Great location, great property manager

  • 5 of 5
Could not ask for a better location - five minutes walk from the beach and great restaurants and shopping. The apartment is located in an older home, very clean and the back patio and small deck were really enjoyed. Can't say enough good about the property manager Laura. I called her upon arrival to ask where we could buy something to make my husband's stay there more manageable as he has mobility issues. Laura insisted on picking up what we needed and delivered it to the house with her warm smile and lovely personality. We have rented many vacation homes over the years and have never met such a genuinely kind and helpful property manager. Also appreciated her restaurant suggestions.

Relaxing stay in prime location!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I booked a 4 day vacation at Mama Dux before sending the kids off to school. It was such a nicely decorated place with such a peaceful sitting area outside under the persimmon tree. We could walk to all of our favorite places on State Street, stroll down to the beach and come back and play cards in the relaxing yard. Laura was wonderful and our stay was just what the doctor ordered!

Our family were renters in the house for 40 years before we were able to buy it in 1993. My grandfather ran a washing machine repair business in the house. Our grandfather was 'Papa Duck' to all the children in the family. Thus The 3 DUX!
