East Beach Retreat - Classic Coastal Comfort One Block From Beach

East Beach Retreat - Classic Coastal Comfort One Block From Beach


Property Details

Updated: Dec 22, 2014
5 Bedroom/2.5 Bath - Sleeps 10-12

Just one block from Santa Barbara's East Beach, this 3-story historic home is perfectly located and traditionally appointed for a memorable seaside vacation. Having previously been a very popular Bed & Breakfast on a street with other hotels and inns, this entire home is now offered as a private vacation rental for the first time.

East Beach Retreat offers proximity to many of the most popular local attractions. The Santa Barbara Zoo, Bird Refuge, Cabrillo Arts Pavilion, East Beach Grill, and sand volleyball courts are all just a 5 minute walk. The electric shuttle, whose route includes Montecito, downtown Santa Barbara, and the water front, runs along Cabrillo Boulevard just one block away. Consider renting bikes, surreys and other modes of transportation at the Wheel Fun kiosk across from the beach. Guests will love being part of all the oceanfront activity while enjoying the vintage charm of this home.

The Parlor has French doors which allow for some privacy for those seeking a quiet place to read a book in front of the fireplace or watch TV. The Formal Dining Room is lovely with plenty of vintage touches. Quaint but spacious, it features antiques and linens to set a proper table.

The Kitchen has recently been renovated with bright glass front cabinetry filled with new dishes, and floors of satiny grey porcelain tiles that are smooth underfoot. A new front loading washer and dryer are conveniently located here too, as are plenty of beach towels that can be used to dry off after taking a soak in the spa on the deck just outside. Outside guests can dine at one of two tables; a small table for 4 on the spa deck, or traditional picnic table on the lower patio with a relaxing porch swing and more seating.

The only downstairs Bedroom is adjacent to the Kitchen. With a full-size bed and corner views of the enclosed backyard, this Guest Room is a bright and welcoming space. A deck with seating is just outside. An attached Bathroom has an oversized soaking tub, ornate antique sink cabinet, and doors that lead back to the entry Hallway for the convenience of other guests as well.

The second floor is occupied by 3 Bedrooms. The Master Bedroom faces the street and offers views of the mountains through antique glass windows. The king-size 4-post bed and an electric "wood burning style" stove add touches of romantic ambiance. A comfy Lazy Boy sofa has a twin-size sleeper for slumbering little ones to stay close to mom and dad.

There are two other guest Bedrooms on the 2nd floor; one with a queen-size bed and pedestal sink, the other with twin bunk beds and a 3rd twin bed to sleep 3 guests comfortably. There is one Bathroom on this floor that is shared by all guests.

The Attic Guest Room is charming. Guests will climb one more flight of stairs but once there, the views are well worth the ascent! A king-size bed is tucked under the roofline and a twin bed has been added to sleep a total of three guests in this room. Half Bath facilities are offered with a pedestal in-room sink and private toilet. The outside roof top deck faces due west, making it the perfect relaxing spot to linger under colorful sunsets that spread pink and purple hues over the coastal landscape. This may just be the ultimate location to enjoy the 4th of July fireworks too!

Bring sand toys, sunscreen, comfortable walking shoes and an attitude for adventure! East Beach Retreat is the most convenient starting point to a fun family-friendly getaway in paradise!

Guestbook comments from the manager

(Transcribed from guestbook at the property)

Dan and Lauren were married in Santa Barbara on October 11, 2014. This was the perfect home-away-from-home to enjoy this most joyous occasion. May their love continue to grow and last, just as this East Beach Retreat has. Loved Santa Barbara.
