Santa Barbara Riviera Ocean View Cottage


Property Details

Updated: Sep 9, 2014
Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, Baths, (Sleeps 4)

We have a completely rebuilt cottage on the Santa Barbara Riviera with a fabulous ocean view. The property has been in our family for 70 years, and we are now offering it as a vacation rental. The cottage has 2 bedrooms. It is in a park-like setting with an ocean-view deck running the length of the cottage and a separate private patio. Every detail has been taken care of.

The beach is 2 miles away. Downtown is a 5 minute drive. This cottage is amazingly close to everything, yet you feel like you are away from it all.

The amenities include a fully-equipped kitchen, very comfortable beds, a gas grill, 2 outside eating areas, washer and dryer, flat-screen cable TV and Wi-Fi. Linens are included.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us for if you would like more information.

Very Nice Stay at this Cute Cottage!

  • 5 of 5
We had a really nice Memorial Day weekend stay in this beautiful Santa Barbara cottage! It was very quiet and relaxing (if you stay during the week in 2014, you may want to ask if the nearby construction is complete). Although the cottage was on the same property as the 'main house', it felt very private and was secluded by trees and plants. The two bedrooms (one with a view towards the ocean) and two full baths were very nice to have. The kitchen, tho' small, was very nice and well stocked with everything we needed. The stackable washer/dryer were a nice bonus--we didn't anticipate using them, but ended up having to wash some things during our stay. The living room sat 4 comfortably, had a nice flat panel TV and iPod/iPhone dock. The couch was a pull-out, but we didn't use it. We loved keeping the large french doors open to the beautiful deck, overlooking town with an ocean view. (SB faces south, so no sunsets over the water in the summer.) We enjoyed a few meals and glasses of wine on the large deck, and even used the gas grill one night after a long day of sea/cave kayaking at the Channel Islands (AWESOME tour!). The rental process was easy and the damage deposit refunded promptly. I highly recommend this vacation cottage and I wouldn't hesitate to go back in the future!

A Hidden Gem!

We stayed a week in this fabulous guest house and loved our stay there. Being former Santa Barbara residents (we were visiting family) we were familiar with the area but we so appreciated how quiet it was and the great views. The house is very clean, well kept and comfortable and we look forward to returning in the future. Mahalo, Ginger, and Aloha!

Our stay in this cottage was perfect!

The cottage is small and compact but the two bedrooms, two bathrooms provide adequate space. The large deck adds considerable square footage. We loved the view!! The kitchen is very well equipped and all contained in such a well designed small space! Everything was extremely well maintained and clean. The owner was very helpful - especially when we discovered we had left belongings behind!!

We would definitely recommend this property to others. Our only comment might be to let them know the location requires driving on a very curving road. But the view at the top is worth it!

A restaurant we enjoyed very much was called Julienne.

My family has recently returned from our second stay at this wonderful cottage. We loved it the first time and even more the second. The house has been decorated with such a nice touch and the kitchen has everything you could need. Although it is very convenient to Santa Barbara's sites, restaurants and shopping, we were just as happy to stay put and enjoy the patio with its fabulous view over the city to the ocean and have drinks and dinner at home.

I sent my wife, sister-in-law and their two best friends on a long weekend as a gift for my wife's 50th birthday. When they returned all they could do was talk about what a great time they had and they described the cottage as the perfect getaway. From the furnishings and decorations to the beautiful setting and view, they described it as perfect. One evening they skipped dinner all together and just sat on the balcony with wine, cheese and crackers. It was so perfect, they just wanted to take it all in. My wife says she's going back and this time she might even let me come along too! Thanks Ginger for making such a wonderful weekend so easy!
