The Boat House on Miramar Beach

The Boat House on Miramar Beach

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Sep 9, 2014
House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 8 Sleeps

Be Sure to See More Pictures at Bottom of Rate Page!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sitting on the sands of the exclusive Miramar Beach in Santa

Barbara, California, this unique, two-story wooden beach house is

one of a kind on this semi-private beach. The current owners bought

this home 18 years ago from the actor James Brolin.

Constructed of teak, mahogany and white spruce...accompanied

by etched and stained glass window, it has been designed to look and

feel like a well-built custom sailing vessel.

Fully appointed, the two units can be used as a single family

home as both units are connected by an inside stairway. While the

upstairs unit does have the larger deck and the fireplace, the lower

unit sits right on the sand...at very high tide you could dangle

your feet in the water!!

Miramar Beach is a beautiful, clean beach that stretches for

miles in each direction. At low tide, you can walk miles: West to

the Biltmore hotel(2 miles) and Stearns Wharf(3 miles)and East to

the little town of Summerland to visit antique stores and

restaurants.

The Coastal Village of Montecito and its neighbor, the Upper

Village,are each just a mile away...shops, salons, spas and

restaurants abound in these quaint areas.

Walk on the beach, enjoy the sunrise and maybe see and swim

with the dolphins during your stay! The surfing is great on

Hammonds Beach and it's right outside your door!

To those who visit, this seems like Paradise. To those who

live here...its just another Tuesday.

We are 15 minutes from the Santa Barbara Airport and an 8

minute drive to downtown and the harbor/marina. Los Angeles is 1.5 -

2 hours to the South.

Perfect End to the Summer

  • 5 of 5
I will start with a word about Robbin. She was tremendously gracious, accommodating and generous with the way that she worked with me and my family. She did not have a renter the day that we were arriving and met us at the unit early with a bottle of wine in her hand...what a great welcome! She walked us through the property and briefed us completely - to the point where I did not have any additional questions. She is a fantastic host!

Now for the location and the unit...we were there with another family, a total of 4 adults and 4 kids. The beach is actually perfect for the ages we had - 8-12. The ocean was inviting and warm (by CA standards) with surf that was fun to play in, but not crushing for the kids. There was a nice surf break (albeit small) a 2 min walk down the beach which I took advantage of.

The unit was the perfect size for the group. Comfortable beds, well stocked kitchen, great balcony/outdoor eating area on the top balcony, very nice BBQ on the roof deck and you just cannot beat the location. I will also say that we brought chairs and umbrellas, but that is not necessary, Robbin has the place well stocked for a day of lounging on the beach.

I also have to point out that the beach is populated by some of the friendliest people you could meet. Got to know the neighbors and other owners/renters and it really felt like an open and welcoming environment. The folks next door were going home and left us some food that they could not take with them while other locals were generous with the dining recommendations. Definitely a old-fashioned small town feel to the area.

I am giving this 5 stars simply because I cannot give it more. A great way to wrap up the summer and we will surely be back!

Romantic Getaway

  • 5 of 5
I took my husband here for a surprise Birthday gift. It was absolutely perfect. Very romantic. We had a private chef come and prepare us dinner. We sat on the deck at sunset. He said it was his best birthday EVER. The house was very clean and charming. A night to remember!!

santa barbara beach ecpierence

  • 5 of 5
Tahnks to Robbin I had one of the best weekends with my grand kids and cousin from Italy. We arrived late in june which are generally foggie months in Santa Barbara... The sun was shining, it was the best of the weather.. we spent so much time on the beach and in the water. The mornings were mignificent! with sunrise and low tide, sitting out on the deck wtih the first cup of coffee is the just the best, a must, to be expieranced. The house is fully equiped, every thing from towels, beach chairs to all cooking utincels,pots and pans.. just add food and personal items. Such a relaxing, comfortable and enjoyable weekend..

Absolutely Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed there a couple or three times and a million would not be enough.

We live in Santa Barbara and when we want a nice, easy and beautiful couple of nights away from home, but not too far, we call Robbin and she always takes care of us. We never want for anything, it's clean, quiet and Robbin is always around if we need something or have questions. The amenities, like beach equipment are too many to describe and all are in good condition, between that, the Wi-Fi and the flat screen T.V., we feel like we are a million miles away...it's perfect!

I am sad to see the comment by the visitor from Texas. I've been to Texas and...it's Texas... it's fine, but Miramar Beach it's the best! Like all beach communities Miramar Beach has its quirks, which I think is to be expected and part of the charm. Ants? hadn't noticed, I imagine they are there, they are everywhere I have ever been, but there haven't been enough to notice and I probably would (notice).

FYI: we sleep with all of the doors open...it's beautiful, the sound of the surf, especially in the winter, is so relaxing and it's safe...

Thanks for all you do to make us feel so comfortable!

Good Things and Bad

  • 3 of 5
Good things: House is in a good location on a nice beach. Owner has the house well stocked with paper products, beach chairs, umbrellas, toys, even a kayak.

Bad things: Significant ant problem in the freezer and a portion of the refrigerator. Less significant ant problem in kitchen and bathroom. The houses are right on top of each other so if you have a noisy neighbor it can be loud. We stayed in the bottom portion so you could not really leave the door open at night because anybody could wander in off the beach. Unfortunately this was the only way to get air into the house without the bedroom becoming stuffy.

Owner's Response: Ants are an inherent problem with the beach. We all have them. Some years are worse than others. We do everything we can to control them. This is the first guest that has had a problem this year.

The houses are close to each other but everyone tries very hard to be considerate of neighbors.

I lived at the beach for 4 years and slept with the doors open all the time. It is a semi-private beach and no one is wandering around at night. If I had known it was too hot, I would have happily supplied fans. I had one in the upper unit in the closet and there should have been one in the lower unit also. It rarely gets too hot. The temps are usually in the mid 70s during the summer. This particular week it was very hot.

Beautiful views! Great Location

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I spent the weekend at The Boat House in March. I can't even describe how beautiful the beach views were from the property.

The owner was very accommodating and it was just a terrific weekend all around. Can't recommend it enough.
