About the Owner

I am a former TV sports director and producer who spent 25 years travelling the world covering live events. I have stayed in many hotels, and when we decided to do a vacation rental, we worked hard to bring the same quality and comfort that I remembered from some of our best hotel stays. Lately, I have focused my career on working to preserve the 21 Spanish missions of California. We are available to provide a historical walking tour of downtown Santa Barbara during your stay. Inquire about available dates, and we would be happy to include you in this memorable walk through the historic heart of downtown Santa Barbara.

Clean, comfortable and convenient

  • 5 of 5
We arrived late on Wednesday night for a two day stay in our favorite getaway Santa Barbara, the owner David was there to greet us and walk us through the property.

The room was exactly what we needed: clean, comfortable and convenient. It looked like the property had been recently renovated. All the amenities we needed were there, plus some: hotel-grade towels, hairdryer, iron/ironing board, coffee maker, microwave oven and small fridge/freezer. Wifi is also available on site. The bed was awesome, and incredibly comfortable, much better than the 4-star hotel we stayed at two weeks ago in Santa Monica! I easily had some of the most restful nights' sleep while I was there. The property and adjacent neighbor properties make for a park-like setting, it was really cool to be so close to downtown (5 blocks) and in such a natural setting. I was most impressed with the owner's remodel of the property from solid wood floors to clean white subway iling in the large bathroom.

We brought our bikes with us, and David graciously let us park them in the garage for safekeeping.

It's a short bike ride to the beach and to downtown. Really a cool spot.

When we go back up to Santa Barbara, it's a given that we'll be booking here again. I hope it's available!

Perfect location, beautiful space, but noisey

  • 4 of 5
My wife and I stayed here for an anniversary weekend get away. The location was perfect. It's 3 blocks from all the restaurants on Milpas and 5 blocks from the bars and shops on Estate street. Everything is a short walk or a $5 Lyft ride away. Our Wine Canyon Tours driver picked us up right out front. And when we returned the quiet neighborhood was perfect for a post-winery tour nap.

The property is quite cute and you feel like you're staying in your own condo and no someone's guest room. The private entrance and out door area is great for relaxing under the avocado tree, drinking coffee and relaxing in the morning. The area feels very private despite being attached to the main house. It would be nice if the fence gate to the front porch shared the same key as the unit's door. Then you could leave the window open while out.

The king-sized bed is large and luxurious, but could use an extra down pillow or two to match the mattress. The towels, waters and toiletries were also nice touch. The dimmable recessed lighting lets you create whatever mood you desire.

My only complain with the property is that it's kind of noisy. There's no fan or air conditioning. So on warmer nights, you have to leave the windows open. We leave the windows open all the time at home and sleep right through city noises. But we were woken up several times each night and morning by the neighbor's dogs, and guests and neighbors coming and going. This is partially due to the quiet residential street the property is on. But a fan or source of white noise might go along way to help this in the future.

A group of women were staying at the property's 2br unit for the Avon Walk that started early each morning. This unit shares a wall and the ceiling with the 1br unit. And like a normal house, you can easily hear your fellow guests. So keep that in mind.

Location

From the Owner

I chose this property because of its unique location in the center of Santa Barbara's former Italian neighborhood. The craftsman-style homes in this area allowed us to create three quality units all with historic features and a relaxing feel. This block is ideal as we are just a 5 block walk to the heart of downtown, but yet 2-3 blocks removed from the bustle of the busy downtown sector. You are close enough to walk to town, but yet a bit removed to avoid the evening noise that our downtown sometimes have. In the other direction, we are just 6-7 blocks to the Beach. The location is ideal, convenient and perfect for enjoying the best of Santa Barbara. The eastside of downtown Santa Barbara also provides for spectacular views of the American Riviera. It's a historic neighborhood, and suited well for a memorable visit to Santa Barbara.
