Overview

Property Details

Updated: Sep 17, 2014
2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

As you enter this classic 1915 cottage, the feeling is immediately one of true Craftsman charm. This is the perfect retreat for incurably romantic couples or a small family. Located in the prestigious Upper East neighborhood, it is just a short walk to the historic Santa Barbara Mission and Rose Gardens in one direction, and the restaurants and shops of downtown State Street in the other. Hardwood floors, wainscoting, and perfectly restored original doors & windows, all combine to maintain the classic California bungalow style. Its interior is warm, bright and welcoming. Fresh paint and designer furnishings add elegance and individuality to this unique property.

From the new Santa Barbara sandstone pathway, you enter the home through a porch-style foyer. This foyer includes a built-in desk, and is accented with wall-to-wall sea-grass carpeting. The living room is filled with contemporary and vintage elegance resting upon newly re-finished original Douglas Fir floors. This room is the heart of the home, inviting guests to stretch out on the oversized window seat under original cottage windows, or a goose-down sofa in front of the fireplace. A 50" Flat screen HDTV and a library of books, movies, and games, complete this gathering place.

Adjacent to living room is the formal dining room accented by a charming built-in buffet with original leaded glass fronts. The dining table comfortably seats six. The kitchen has been completely re-modeled with stunning handcrafted cabinetry, stainless steel appliances.

The romantic, design-inspired Master Bedroom has an ultra comfy new California King bed which offers luxurious sleeping in the finest linens, classic built-in dresser, and 32" Flat screen HDTV. Natural light pours through windows overlooking the backyard below. This comfortable and romantic space shares an adorable “Jack and Jill ” bathroom with the adjacent bedroom. The second bedroom with a new plush queen bed offers a quiet and serene place to rest. More sunshine enters though wrap-around corner windows. French doors open to the living room making it a comfortable sitting room when not in use as a second bedroom. All rooms feature custom drapery and window treatments, fresh paint, and newly refinished original floors. State of the art electronics including DVD/CD player, iPOD docking station, flat screen TV’s, and a custom stereo system bring the home into the modern era. Enjoy all this while being surrounded with traditional comfort and eclectic antiques of the finest woods and fabrics.

Outside, the backyard offers a peace-filled respite with lush grassy lawn, beautiful outdoor furniture, large BBQ and spa. You are invited to harvest the fruit from the trees in our small orchard. Local citrus fruits, exotic mangos, delicious apricots, avocados, tangerines and citrus fruit will be a part of your seasonal meals while on the property. In a downstairs room off the backyard, a private home gym has been created complete with Orbitrek elliptical, exercise ball, yoga mats, stretch bands and full set of weights. No detail has been overlooked in the creation of this cozy yet luxurious retreat. Classic Craftsman Cottage offers a peaceful place to relax and unwind. It is a unique and exceptional expression of comfortable style, in the heart of Santa Barbara's Upper East tradition.

The Cottage suit us perfectly. It was the best equipped place we have ever rented. TurnKey did a great job of staying in touch with us. We would come again

Lovely Cottage

  • 4 of 5
Beautiful, spacious cottage in a very central location within walking distance to parks, historic sites, restaurants and even the shops of State Street. Easy bike to beach. We enjoyed our time in this lovely home. The houses in the neighborhood are very close together which poses the only problem we encountered: the use of the hot tub on our last night. A neighbor complained of the noise - which was really only three of us talking in a conversational tone in the tub. Otherwise it was a wonderful experience.

Reviewer Comments:
Just what we needed. Still a bit far from the main shopping area downtown, we loved its location. We weren't there for the shopping and enjoyed the feel of,home once we entered the front door. Our first home rental and definitely won't be the last. Thank you for making our home away for home perfect.

Don't overlook this place

This was exactly what we were looking for in a vacation rental- quiet neighborhood, clean and more-than-adequate accommodations, a city where there is plenty to do, and wine country not far away. We thought we wanted to be closer to the beach, but are glad we were a five minute drive away. Mostly touristy stuff there anyway. The house was as nice as our own home, and obviously well cared for. The back yard was quiet and private, and though we didn't use the hot tub, it appeared to be a nice one. The owners had local maps and guidebooks in the home which we scoured before heading out each day. We followed their restaurant recommendations in the provided notebook (which also had essential info about the house), and they were spot-on. A nice selection of DVDs was there, and the home theater was a plus (though we were too busy to watch it much). Great book library. The "workout room" was nothing to get excited about, but no big deal to us. A driveway with garage (for a compact car) was a plus. Turnkey Rentals emailed us a couple of times to make sure everything was ok. The neighborhood is QUIET, so bringing a noisy party group there would not be well received, I suspect. Overall we were well cared for and the house was one we'd try to buy if retiring there. Will definitely go to the same place when again in Santa Barbara.

Reviewer Comments:
Had a very enjoyable week in the "Craftsman Cottage" with my kids. The home was very well appointed and very comfortable. It's located in the middle of a well-established neighborhood so it feels just like home. The only drawbacks (and they are minor) would be the the single Jack and Jill bathroom and the fact that it's situated on a slightly busy street. It's not a major road, but it appears to serve as a "cut through" for morning commuters, so there's a bit of traffic noise. Again, these are very minor drawbacks. We would definitely rent this property again.

Reviewer Comments:
I went here with 3 of my friends for a girls weekend. We are in our thirties and were looking for a relaxing Santa Barbara weekend. The neighbors were not having that. Friday night we enjoyed the hot tub until about 11:30PM and were aware of the fact that there were neighbors, took that seriously and made sure to be considerate. I guess that wasnt enough bc I was awaken by the property manager knocking on the door at 8:00AM the next day saying that if we were not quieter the second night they would evict us! Four women in our thirties chatting in a hot tub until 11:30PM is not grounds for eviction. Especially if we were making a conscious effort too respect the neighbors. The next day (Saturday afternoon around 2:30PM) we were sitting in the back yard. My friend yelled a question from the house. Our converesation with the friend from the house went back and forth maybe 4 times and then she went back inside. A neighbor lady came over and yelled at us to keep it down! Speaking to us like we were children. If it was a family with children playing in the yard at that time it would have been MUCH louder and carried on MUCH longer. Basically if you are looking for a relaxing weekend with family or friends this is not the house for you. If you are looking to be scolded at for anything other than being quiet inside the house it might be a good fit. Will not be using turn key again after the way the property manager completely spoke down to me and threatened an eviction. No thanks.
