Property Details

Updated: Nov 12, 2014
House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 5 Sleeps

Charming 1930's Spanish home located in a quaint and quiet Santa Barbara neighborhood, the Lower Riviera. Just one mile from the beach and one mile from downtown Santa Barbara, this home is centrally locacted. It is a great place to use as a base for your visit here - explore Santa Barbara, Los Angeles is just 90 minutes south and the amazing Santa Ynez wine region is just 45 minutes to the north. Santa Barbara has much to offer - from beaches to hiking, golf to concerts or just some old fashion sight seeing and shopping!

The home is warm and comfortable and fully stocked with everything you will need to make the most of your stay. The kitchen and dining areas are very cozy and just off the spacious living room. The master bedroom has a King sized bed with a door that opens directly to one of the outside patios. A great place to enjoy a glass of wine and a sunset. The second bedroom has a queen sized bed and is spacious, quiet and has plenty of closet space! There is a sun room with a twin sized sleeper sofa for an extra guest.

Outside there are two great decks to enjoy the peaceful outdoors and a wonderful outside eating area that is perfect for evening meals...even with a large group. The back yard is private and quiet and has a BBQ to prepare some great meals. The front patio is perfect for morning coffee and reading the paper.

Loved it!

This house is beautiful and well kept, and super clean which is a must for me. You can easily tell that the owners care about the small details that make a big difference in a home. I wish we would have had more time to enjoy the patio but we plan to do so next time!

Owner's Response: There can be no better review than planning on returning for a future visit! And thankfully many of our guests do just that and several have become regular visitors. It is great to think of our house as home away from home for so many!

Wow! I mean really wow! This home was absolutely amazing! From the moment we walked in, we knew we made the right decision. We came to Santa Barbara for our son's baseball tournament and decided to make a mini vacation out of the visit. From day one, working with Sven was outstanding. He was responsive. The energy in the home is very calm and serene. Everything was neat and clean and very inviting. We loved the backyard! My favorite room was the kitchen. The home was a perfect size for my family. The surrounding neighborhood was nice. We spent a day at the beach and a day on State Street. I also loved reading all of the comments previous guests/visitors left in the guest book!

We will definitely be returning! Like a previous review, I hate to share this little place in paradise. Pretty soon, booking this beautiful bungalow is going to be pretty difficult. Sven, thank you for opening up your lovely home to us.

Efrem, Stacey and Kyle-Kenneth!

Owner's Response: I can't believe what a fantastic response our little house can generate sometimes, but I know what it means to have a truly relaxing place to enjoy a getaway so these comments are very much appreciated. Hopefully more families can enjoy the experience as well! Thank you!

My husband, our two teenage children, and my parents vacationed down the coast of California for 12 days, and this Santa Barbara home was one of our five accommodations along the way. We stayed here for only two nights, and definitely left wanting more time! It was our favorite place we stayed. The home is full of character and so beautiful. We arrived to find it meticulously clean and organized. The décor is very tasteful, interesting, and unique. The front yard is so welcoming with lots of beautiful plants, and the backyard is one of the prettiest I've seen. LOVED THE BACKYARD. It is very private, and the landscaping and lighting outside is the perfect setting for gathering/eating together with loved ones. And of course, the amazing SB climate is just icing on the cake! If you are able to pull yourself away from the house, go to Los Agaves for some delicious Mexican food...fresh + YUMMY.

Sven is super nice and a pleasure to deal with. He was available to us to answer any questions, and we also got a lot of ideas/recommendations from the guest book in the home.

We would LOVE to stay here again. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this home to anyone staying in the area. I want to move here.

Thank you Sven for opening up your home to us! It was the perfect backdrop for some very special memories!

Jewel of a Home

This Bungalow was quite simply PERFECT for our family! I almost don't want to share this secret hideaway, but here goes.

We were able to have some special time with our daughter after UCSB graduation in addition to celebrating Fathers Day with a BBQ with extended family. What a great backyard for relaxation with complete privacy. Every comfort was provided from pillows, large table, plenty of chairs, BBQ and elegant lighting for a warm evening.

The interior of the home is like stepping into your own retreat. The most amazing couch the welcomes you in a large family room surrounded by huge windows providing beautiful views. The kitchen had every item at your fingertips from seasonings to beautiful serving dishes. The bathroom is spacious and sparkling clean. As for the bedrooms, the environment created is warm and welcoming with plenty of room to relax and lots of closet space.

Thank you for making your home so welcoming with all the comforts anyone could image and then some.

We hope to stay again in the future.

Comfortable Upscale Home, Great Walkability!

This was a fantastic place to stay---comfortable and as homey as your own home might feel if you had impeccable taste and great housekeeping habits. It was perfect for two couples, with plenty of lounging space in the living room, a big island in the kitchen, and two bathrooms.

Even better, the home is in easy walking distance to all the attractions---wine tasting, great restaurants, the beach, and downtown.

We'll definitely try to book this lovely home for our next visit to Santa Barbara.

Home Revisited

  • 5 of 5
We decided to take a vacation to Santa Barbara for my son's spring break from school. I used to live in Santa Barbara, about 30 years ago, for about 10 years. So, I wanted to share that part of my life with my family. Also, I have a very dear friend living in SB who announced that she is engaged. So, I decided to rent a house so I could experience living in SB with my family for the short visit.

Staying at this bungalow was perfect. It enabled me to have my friend and fiancé over for dinner for a more intimate evening. It was very close to everything, the beach, State Street, and Milpas, which serves as a main thoroughfare for getting around, shopping for groceries, Taco Bell (a must for my son) and my fav, and La Superica-Taqueria is nearby. Since I know my way around SB and it really hasn't changed that much, this house made me feel perfectly at home. My dear friend even commented on how this house was "so me". The type of home I may have lived in, had I remained in Santa Barbara.

I loved the "lower Riviera" location. Great for strolling the neighborhood. Don't let the access from Milpas fool you, as it can be deceiving when you see the laundromat and Minimart at the foot of the neighborhood. The beauty of this location is that you can walk to downtown or ride your bike straight down Milpas to the harbor and beach area.

Sven was also very accommodating. We were lucky enough to book our rental out about 3 weeks, he responded very quickly to every question we had. We were also able to bring our dog. That is a huge plus for us because he is as much of our family as anyone.

We followed all the rules and never left the dog at the home alone, cleaned up after him and made sure that we left the place the way we found it. So, it was gratifying to receive our full refund very promptly after we checked out.

I truly hope to rent this home again when we can enjoy the patio more. It rained each night we were there, but the days were beautiful. The breezes flowing into the house were heavenly. Lots of sunshine open windows and views from the deck made for gorgeous photos!

Thx Sven and Laura!!
