Overview

Property Details

Updated: Nov 16, 2014
4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10

We have just finished a complete remodel of this lovely beach home, including the addition of a brand new swimming pool with spa. The house is beautifully furnished, but at the same time is extremely family and dog friendly. No worries about putting your feet up! The pool is heated and has an automatic cover. The newly landscaped yard is fully enclosed including self-latching gates, is amply furnished for outdoor leisure activities, is well lit in the evenings and includes a hot water outdoor shower. The house has three bedrooms downstairs: the first and second bedrooms share a bathroom and each contains ample closet space, a queen bed, and a flat screen TV; the third downstairs bedroom has an en suite bathroom with a shower/tub combination, two twin beds and a flat screen TV. It is adjacent via French doors to the covered and furnished porch with an ocean view overlooking the pool. The upstairs bedroom is furnished with a queen bed, has its own bathroom and flat screen television, and a private balcony with an ocean view overlooking the pool. The spacious open floor plan living room at the front of the house includes a 60' flat screen television and lends itself to convivial game and movie nights. The sofa in the living room converts into a queen bed. The kitchen has a lovely ocean view and is open to the dining/living area for easy entertaining. There is a full size washer and dryer located in a separate room adjacent to the kitchen. The house includes an attached single car garage with room in the driveway for tandem parking of two additional cars. The front yard contains two citrus trees, a Valencia orange and a Eureka lemon. The house is equipped with cable, internet, wi-fi, five flat screen televisions and multiple portable speakers for your digital music library, a porta-crib and high chair, and beach chairs and umbrellas. We stock the house with all of the amenities you will need to get your vacation started, including laundry supplies, shampoo/conditioner/body wash, paper goods for the bathroom and kitchen, spices, condiments, coffee, tea, sugar and creamer. We want you to walk in the door and feel right at home!

Exceeded Expectations!

  • 5 of 5
I booked this home for a girls' weekend and was so impressed! The house was very well-appointed, clean and organized. We all remarked that we were immediately comfortable -- the house really felt like a home. We used every inch of this house since we were a group of 10 and did not encounter a single issue or problem. Rather, everything we needed was right on hand. The pool, spa, bbq and televisions were simple to operate as the owner had easy-to-understand directions for everything. She even patiently addressed all my concerns leading up to the booking since I was a first-time VRBO renter and somewhat wary of the process. All in all, the experience was fabulous! We'll definitely be back next year!

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5
We gathered our family together under one roof for a wonderful family vacation. It was the perfect location, with the perfect house. We had everything we needed. (needed an extra paper towel and tp) Aside from that it was perfect! Very comfortable, well equipped kitchen, quiet neighborhood, just a few blocks from the beach and walking distance to get fresh baked goods and coffee for breakfast!

Owner's Response: Thank you for this lovely review! To get your vacation started, we provide a wide variety of basic supplies. Upon arrival, our guests will find a fresh roll of toilet paper in each bathroom and a fresh roll of paper towels in the kitchen. Once those supplies are consumed, the traveler will need to do a little shopping!

This property exceeded our expectations with an overall high standard equipment. Great pool and outside area. Kitchen and bathrooms are top. But the best is the Popcorn machine.

Wonderful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time. The heated pool and spa were such a bonus. The location and set-up worked perfectly for our family. We rode bikes down to State Street and the beach. Close to amenities and very comfortable for a family gathering. Thank you for creating such a warm and relaxing place. We plan to make it an annual event!

Great House in a Great Location!

  • 5 of 5
We spent our yearly family getaway in this house in July. There was plenty of room for all of us, even having room for some inflatable mattresses, on the nights when everyone was there. The kitchen was fully stocked, and there were plenty of towels and other necessities that usually are not included when renting houses. We especially enjoyed the beach chairs and umbrella that were there for trips to the beach. And one beach really was only a few minutes away on foot. Steep stairs led down to the shore so I wouldn't recommend it for everyone. The pool, though not huge, was big enough for the kids to play in and for the adults to keep cool in while relaxing on a floatie. The backyard was the best feature, and we spent most of our time outdoors. The owner was always available if we needed her, (which we never did because no problems arose). This house would be a good choice for anyone with a larger group looking to spend some quality time in this beautiful city.

Great family friendly large house in central Santa Barbara

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this house for a family wedding with other family and it accommodated our group with several kids very comfortably. The house has everything and is very nicely decorated with many wall mounted high end TV's and new appliances including washer / dryer. The popcorn machine was a huge hit and the house is close to everything - beach, State Steet, SB Zoo. The pool with the automatic retractable cover is also awesome and very convenient. I highly recommend this house if you are looking for a very nice home to rent in SB and you need room for kids / large family.

Location

From the Owner

In my experience, people who visit Santa Barbara want to live at the beach, while being close to the shops, restaurants and theaters. This property gives you all of that and a swimming pool as well! It is on a quiet street but close to everything. And, you can walk around the corner and be on the sand.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Santa Barbara Airport at 10 Miles Nearest Barpub : Mesa Cafe and Bar at 0.9 Miles Nearest Golf : Santa Barbara Municipal at 4 Miles Nearest Train : Amtrak Station at 1 Miles Nearest Motorway : Highway 101 at 2 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Shoreline Cafe (South) or Mesa Cafe (North) at 0.9 Miles Nearest Ski : Big Bear Mountain at 180 Miles Nearest Beach : West Beach at 0.2 Miles Car: recommended

This property is located on the border between West Beach and the Mesa beach neighborhood. It is one street off of the coast line, affording easy walking access to the beach without exposing residents to traffic noise. Equally close to both the tourist attractions of Stearn's Wharf (and the neighboring shops, wine tasting rooms and restaurants) and the Mesa commercial district where Santa Barbara's finest grocery store, Lazy Acres, is located, along with Starbucks, farm-fresh produce stands and many local eateries.Santa Barbara City College and its terrific athletic facilities are within walking distance. In this part of town you will also want to check out the Douglas Family Preserve, an ocean front nature preserve given to the community with the generous assistance of local residents Kirk and Michael Douglas; Ellings Park, a favorite of tennis players, hikers, hang gliders and bridal parties; Hendry's Beach, one of our best dog-friendly beaches with dog bathing facilities and ocean front dining; the historic Los Banos Del Mar, a heated 50m 7 lane lap pool for serious swimmers, with an adjacent wading pool for the little ones; the Carriage Museum, which houses many of the historical vehicles which take part in our annual Fiesta Parade (the largest equestrian parade in the Nation). Of course, Santa Barbara is a small community so everything it has to offer is no more than a ten minute car ride away.

Amenities

From the Owner

The swimming pool, of course. And there is only one bedroom upstairs if part of your group wants peace and privacy. The backyard provides plenty of outdoor living space with a covered porch as well as sunny areas and a propane fueled BBQ. The decor is 'cheerful chic' and reflects the Santa Barbara beach lifestyle. When you come back sandy from the beach you can stand under a hot shower by the pool to rinse off, and then step right into the spa and relax, or choose the heated pool for a lively game of water volleyball. Cooking is a dream in the brand new kitchen, decorated in blues and greens with a wall of mosaic glass tiles. And the cook can chat with the rest of the adults, whether seated at the kitchen counter or spread out in the spacious living room. Meanwhile, the kids can retreat to the back bedroom to watch their own TV.
