The Santa Barbara Zoo and the Bird Sanctuary are an easy mile and half walk. If you are traveling to Santa Barbara by train the Secret Getaway is two blocks from the train station and there is a car rental agency two blocks away in case you want to explore the Santa Ynez Valley wine country. If you are tired of walking, all of these attractions can be reached by a local 25 cents-a-ride shuttle bus that runs up State Street and along the ocean front from the harbor to the zoo.

traveler reviews for this santa barbara house rental

Wonderful suprize

Review submitted: April 9, 2014   Date of arrival: April 5, 2014

We needed a place to stay in SB at the last minute. We had stayed at another one of Melanie and Todd's properties in the past so I contacted them and they had the affordable beach getaway available at the last minute.
What a pleasant suprize. The unit is a one bedroom but the layout made it feel very roomy. The furnishings are very upscale yet comfotable and chic. Every detail was thought out and attended to in this unit. The balcony was a huge plus.
The location was great- we walked to dinner and breakfast the next morning.
The entire building is well kept, quiet and very upscale mediterrainean.
We would highly recommend any of Melanie and Todd's properties.
They do an amazing job!

Perfect!

This place is the most adorable little place that we've stayed in in quite a while. Melanie and Todd have not over looked anything. The place is very well equipped. The bed was heaven. Good linens super clean.
I would definite this as a perfect "A+"
Thanks so much.
