Property Details

Updated: May 20, 2015
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.

Charming Indeed

  • 5 of 5
We recently traveled with another couple to the Charming Spanish Bungalow, and very much enjoyed this clean, quaint, well-equipped property. The backyard certainly speaks for itself - we enjoyed cocktails and dinner outside one night, and couldn't have asked for a more lovely setting. Just a note - there are two full baths, but one of them is seriously tiny and located away from the bedrooms. The water pressure is fantastic in both showers and the bathrooms are both clean and modern, but we thought it may be worth sharing the layout information on the baths. Go to the Charming Spanish Bungalow for a great location and a very cute atmosphere with a pretty view!

We were charmed during our October stay!

The bedrooms are a nice size and great to have two bathrooms for two women and all their "stuff" in town for a friends wedding. The property is clean and well maintained, and Sven is very accessible and helpful. This is a great central location in a nice neighborhood, and a plus that we could walk to The Santa Barbara Bowl - a beautiful amphitheater, if you are in town for an event ... and also suggest visiting the beautiful SB Courthouse if you haven't been. We surely would recommend and re-book the Charming Spanish Bungalow!

Owner's Response: So many guests really appreciate that our location is in walking distance of so many things to see and do. Another secret attraction close by is Alameda Plaza, along with the adjacent Alice Keck Park Memorial Gardens. But of course, the SB Bowl is a hidden gem for music lovers!

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!

Beautiful home!

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!

Brad, Shayla, Jolie, Ty, Mack, and Jan :)

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.
