Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)
Welcome to our Santa Barbara Beach Getaway which is the best value for a 2BR/2BA in Santa Barbara. It is unmatched for its location, quality and price!
There are 200+ 2BR/2BA vacation rentals (780 in total) in the 'Santa Barbara Area' and of these, 125 are supposed to be in 'Santa Barbara'. So how do you chose - location, location, location! And then compare our quality and price....
We are not in Carpentaria, Goleta, Summerland or Montecito. We are also not in the suburbs of Santa Barbara such as San Roque, Mission Canyon, Los Positas etc.
We are in the coveted Historic West Beach area, steps from the beach, Las Banos Public Pool, Stearns Wharf, Harbor, world-class dining, and downtown shops, including our own local farmers market. We are not next to the railroad tracks, highway or on a commercial thoroughfare.
Leave your car and associated traffic/parking worries behind. We even offer RARE off street reserved parking.
The Beach Getaway resides in a historical turn of the century building and retains the charm of the day’s bygone. It has been lovingly restored to reflect Santa Barbara's style including hand cast plaster, 10 feet vaulted ceilings and Waterford fireplace giving it both a romantic and European feeling.
The large and private courtyard is encased with green shrubbery and offers Italian fountain, dining table and chairs, chaise lounges and stainless steel BBQ to enjoy the local favorites.
The sparkling open and fully equipped kitchen was designed with high quality construction, including granite countertops, hardwood floors and custom cabinets that are complimented with all appliances: Refrigerator, stove, oven, dishwasher, microwave and washer and dryer. Its granite counter tops include a dining area for 5.
The warm and cozy living room has hardwood floors, Waterford fireplace, pull out couch, 46' TV/DVD and a view of the private courtyard through the french glass door.
The queen bedroom has a sliding glass door with garden view, that leads to a private patio and is accessible by this bedroom only. The second bedroom has a king bed, small desk and wireless internet throughout.
Each bedroom is complimented with a full bath, each with a shower/tub combination. The bathrooms offer limestone floors, granite countertops and French white tiles.
When you book with us, you are booking directly with the owners, which means you are not dealing with a management company, or a 3rd party call center, or a computerized mobile application. Often times the 3rd party does not live in town or even know the property. We know our properties intimately, as we both own and manage them, and have a 15 year track record. Our seventeen independent FIVE star reviews speak for themselves, including our cleanliness. Also our history as a vacation rental ensures that the property will be delivered. Unfortunately there are some fraudulent offerings and sometimes rental agencies have the ability to 'substitute' your property with another.
Upon booking, directions are emailed along with our contact information, Restaurant Recommendations, Winery and Activities Recommendations and Welcome Notes providing detailed information about the Beach Getaway. In this way, you can drive right to the Getaway, which has a lock box where you’ll use your unique code to enter. There is no need to set up an appointment. Inside, you'll enjoy premium amenities: shampoo, soaps, paper & cleaning products, and 5 star quality bath and beach towels, linens and cleaniness.
And we offer complimentary champagne upon your arrival.
While priced slightly higher than most 1BR/1BA’s, the Beach Getaway offers a comfortable stay for 2 couples or a small family. Most of the single hotel rooms are priced higher and yet our Beach Getaway offers so much more.
Or you can upgrade to our Santa Barbara Ocean Getaway VRBO #20308 which offers approximately 1/3 more square footage and slightly higher amenities. Or rent both, which are side by side, for 4 bedrooms and 4 baths.
We welcome a comparison to the 200+ vacation rentals and Hotels as we are unmatched in location, quality & price!

A bit of Paradise on a Travelers Budget!
We were lucky to have stayed at a West Beach condo most people only dream of finding.
It is so close to the beach, you can almost hear the ocean. A short walk is all one needs to
be walking with your toes in the sand or looking off the wharf, watching boats go by.
Now let me tell you the best part. The Condo looks and feels like home except even better.
Plush, clean,& extremely well decorated. You do not need anything that isn't there.
My family all gave me high fives on choosing such a winner for our trip. ( I agree)
If you want to impress not only your friends and family including yourself on how smart you will appear to be, I highly recommend you book this property. The owners take a very personal hands on approach to make sure your stay will be one of great memories.
Santa Barbara Escape
We will be back with regularity!
From the Owner
“This is truly the way to enjoy Santa Barbara. We are walking distance to all - the beach, harbor, public pool, Stearns Wharf and the main street downtown (State Street) that hosts the best restaurants, shops and theaters. We also offer rare private reserved parking, enabling you to park you car freely. Why waste time in traffic or looking for parking as parking in Santa Barbara can be a challenge and the highways do experience significant traffic delays. We are located in a residential area, not a commercial thorough fare or next to the rail road tracks or highway. We also offer a large private courtyard with Italian fountain, chaise lounges table and chairs and gas grill, that enable you to relax and enjoy the sun, or cook you local favorites on our gas grill. You will not find a comparable vacation rental when comparing location, quality and price!”
