On a quiet street in Santa Barbara's best downtown residential neighborhood -The Upper Eastside - this charming guesthouse is in the most perfect location: 4 blocks to State Street where you'll find shops, restaurants, cinemas, museums and 4 blocks to the historic Mission with its lovely Rose Garden. Gorgeous Alice Keck Park Memorial Garden, a Santa Barbara gem, is a 3-minute walk from your door. The beaches, Stearn's Wharf and Harbor are all close by.

Our guesthouse suite suitable for 1 or 2 persons is a classic 1924 California cottage entirely transformed with contemporary amenities yet retaining its authentic original design with wainscoting in all rooms and a beamed ceiling in the bedroom and bathroom. The private entrance adjacent to the kitchen has a small deck with a café table and chairs. You won't hear the hum of the freeway or noise from downtown trains. We invite you to read our reviews and see why this exceptional guesthouse with its location, elegance and serenity is an incomparable best value in Santa Barbara.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for making our holiday special. Your cottage was very charming and we enjoyed our stay here. You're very lucky to be living in such a beautiful place! When we were walking, we really enjoyed the homes and their yards. Everything from the weather to the trees and plants were wonderful. Thanks for the fresh flowers. You made this place feel like home. We would definitely recommend your place to our friends. Sylvia & Derek from Alberta, Canada

Wonderful Charming Cottage - Great Location

  • 5 of 5
My SO and I stayed at this cottage for one week and it was wonderful -- extremely quiet, very cute, bright and airy. The kitchen is well equipped and spacious with nice outlooks to the neighborhood and succulent garden with great afternoon breezes. The bathroom is also very spacious and has loads of storage space -- a very welcome surprise given this is a vintage cottage! We loved the two outdoor spaces and found ourselves almost living outside on the patio area relishing the sunshine and peaceful views of the succulent garden. Great spot for morning coffee, lunch, afternoon wine, and dinner! The location is excellent, offering a quieter more residential experience than the typical hotel or B&B in town. A short pleasant stroll to State Street through a neighborhood of beautiful homes and gardens, a quick walk to the Mission and Alice Keck Park, to name a few. Parking is extremely easy right in front of the cottage, however you will not want or need to drive anywhere once you arrive! Barbara and Russell are wonderful hosts, very gracious and helpful but not intrusive; we rarely saw them after the first day but knew they were just a call or door knock away if we needed anything. We highly recommend this gem and already booked our next visit!

Downtown Santa Barbara Guesthouse

  • 5 of 5
Our stay here was fantastic in every aspect. The guesthouse was very comfortable and has everything we could need or want to make our stay so wonderful. Barbara and Russell are great hosts and are very friendly. Barbara provided us with plenty of information about the area and things to do. We were busy seeing all the sights and enjoyed walking all over the beautiful city. Russell takes excellent care of this beautiful property which is located on a lovely quiet street in a very nice neighborhood.The guesthouse includes a very nice covered patio (a perfect spot to nap)! The whole experience was A+++ and we look forward for returning soon.

Great property and stay!

  • 5 of 5
This is a fantastic property in a great location in Santa Barbara. You are walking distance from tons of restaurants and attractions and have easy access to the 101 to go elsewhere. The guesthouse itself is squeaky clean and has everything you need for your stay, including a kitchen if you would like to cook. I was also provided with a nice list of places to eat, of which every one I tried was excellent. Highly recommend this property for a single or couple travelling to the area.

We had a very relaxing stay. It was nice to be within walking distance of town but still feel removed from the hustle and bustle while hanging out at the guest house.
Barbara and Russell were very friendly but also gave us our space. They also had great recommendation for us.

Truly exceptional

  • 5 of 5
For us this was a first-class property, with warm hospitality from the hosts. Not only do they provide tips on the region, events and restaurants, they shared time with us as if we were old friends. Barbara and Russell offer advice with great discretion, letting guests find their way at their own pace. This was a great place to recover from jet lag, being very quiet; kitchen and bath are fully stocked with quality amenities; it is easy to find, convenient location. Wifi is fast, easy and much better than hotel internet. An ideal choice for self-catering accommodation. We'll definitely be returning.

Location

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Santa Barbara Airport at 10 Miles Nearest Train : Santa Barbara Station at 1.5 Miles Nearest Motorway : Freeway 101 at 1 Miles Nearest Beach : East Beach at 1.5 Miles Nearest Barpub : Carlitos at 0.6 Miles Nearest Restaurant : CaDario - Best Italian Restaurant Award 2014 at 0.5 Miles Car: not necessary

If you'd like to be within walking distance of Santa Barbara's shopping, movies, restaurants--but would also enjoy being away from it all in the best downtown residential area close to everything-- you won't find a better location than our beautiful guesthouse. Walk to the award-winning Courthouse or the world-class Museum of Art or the Queen of the Missions with its exquisite rose garden. They are all a few blocks away.
