You will love staying at the Downtown Victorian Villa! It was built in 1905 and is full of Victorian details and charm. There is unique Victorian architecture throughout! There are many large windows and high ceilings in each room and hardwood floors in some rooms.

The Villa is so large that the 1st time I walked through it I got lost!! It is meant to accommodate large groups of up to 12 guests. Leave your car parked in the garage and walk everywhere!! Downtown to shops and restaurants on State Street. Walk to Paseo Nuevo shopping center just 4 blocks away! You can also walk to the gorgeous East Beach with it's Sunday market along Cabrillo Blvd. and then stroll down the pier at the end of State Street!!

As you approach the Villa, walk up the steps onto the front porch and in through the front door where you will find the Princess Suite bedroom, the living room, the kitchen, the breakfast sun porch, a full bathroom and the large elegant dining room!

The Princess Suite is on the left as you enter in through the front door. It is a large beautiful room with a Queen bed and gorgeous furnishings. It faces Bath St with a large bay window and 2 other large windows with high ceiling and hardwood floor.

Ascend the staircase to the 4 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms on the 2nd floor. The Bay room faces Bath Street with Queen sized bed. This room is large with a bay window, 2 more large windows and hardwood floor. Go down the hall to the Yellow room. This room is good sized and bright with 3 large windows. It has a queen bed and carpeted floor. The next room across the hall is the Pink room. It is darker, good sized and has 2 large windows and carpeted floor with a Queen bed. At the end of the hall you will find the Pee Wee Room. This is a small room with a small window, carpeted floor and a full bed. There are 2 full bathrooms on this floor.

Take the next set of stairs up to the gorgeous Artist's Loft on the 3rd floor! This room is approx 500 sf with 2 partially separated areas. There is a queen bed in 1 area and a double bed in the other area. This room has a small living room with TV, dining room table with 4 chairs and a small refrigerator.

Downstairs again as you enter in the front door of the Villa, walk through the foyer, past the Princess Suite and enter into the bright and comfortable living room and beyond to the magical kitchen with the breakfast sun porch to the left. From the living room enter through the beautiful antique doors on the left to the incredible dining room with seating for 12. There is also a full bathroom on this floor with clawfoot tub / shower combo!

The Guest House which is located at the back of the property is occupied by me part time.

It was perfect!!

  • 5 of 5
I was recently married in downtown Santa Barbara and staying at The Downtown Victorian could not have gone better. The house is in an incredible location and was so "homey" and perfect for me and my guests. Elle was great with communication and willing to go the extra mile to make sure everyone staying there felt welcome and cared for. We definitely plan on returning.

Location and size unbeatable!

  • 4 of 5
We rented the downtown Victorian for a combined family vacation and celebration of my daughter's graduation from UCSB. With a group that topped out at 14 when everyone was there it was difficult to find a home that would accommodate us all. The Downtown Victorian is an aging beauty and as such could use some updating both to the home and the furnishings (especially some of the beds like the one in the guest house which was very hard) but the location and the size/charm of the property make up for those shortcomings especially if you have a large group. We were able to walk to almost everywhere we wanted to eat and shop (probably walked distances up to 1.5 miles) including grocery and drug store less than five minutes away.

Wedding Weekend

  • 5 of 5
My husband's family and I stayed in your Victorian Villa over the Memorial Day weekend. We were attending my stepdaughter's wedding in Montecito. I worried about the distance between the villa and the wedding venue but it was no problem at all, really very very close. The shopping and beach area was so close our guests could walk there, or take a run there and back. The house itself had everything we needed, even an iron for last minute preparation for our events. I stayed in the guest house, which was perfect for me and my husband. There was a room for everyone with their particular needs. We even made breakfast there one day, and that worked out well. Being Starbuck's addicts, we loved having one a block away, and visited there every day of our trip, YAY!!! Thank you for checking up on us too, that was super considerate. There were absolutely no complaints with the group at all.

Great Santa Barbara Experience for a Large Group

  • 4 of 5
Our bunco group (twelve women) take a weekend trip every year. The Santa Barbara Victorian was an excellent choice. Although the accommodations weren't on a 4 star hotel level, this Victorian house had the charm and amenities needed for our group. A beautiful dining room and 7 bedrooms held all of us comfortably. And the location! Just a few blocks from State Street with all the shopping, restaurants, and theaters. We never left the area, except to go down to the harbor area on Sunday for the arts and crafts walk. A grocery store (Ralphs) is just a block or so away. All in all, it was a perfect weekend. Thanks Lori!
