vacation rental description

Welcome to our Santa Barbara Beach Getaway which is the best value for a 2BR/2BA in Santa Barbara. It is unmatched for its location, quality and price!

There are 200+ 2BR/2BA vacation rentals in the 'Santa Barbara Area' and of these, 125 are supposed to be in 'Santa Barbara'. So how do you chose - location, location, location! And then compare our quality and price....

We are not in Carpentaria, Goleta, Summerland or Montecito. We are also not in the suburbs of Santa Barbara such as San Roque, Mission Canyon, Los Positas etc.

We are in the coveted Historic West Beach area, steps from the beach, Las Banos Public Pool, Stearns Wharf, Harbor, world-class dining, and downtown shops, including our own local farmers market. We are not next to the railroad tracks, highway or on a commercial thoroughfare.

Leave your car and associated traffic/parking worries behind. We even offer RARE off street reserved parking.

The Beach Getaway resides in a historical turn of the century building and retains the charm of the day’s bygone. It has been lovingly restored to reflect Santa Barbara's style including hand cast plaster, 10 feet vaulted ceilings and Waterford fireplace giving it both a romantic and European feeling.

The large and private courtyard is encased with green shrubbery and offers Italian fountain, dining table and chairs, chaise lounges and stainless steel BBQ to enjoy the local favorites.

The sparkling open and fully equipped kitchen was designed with high quality construction, including granite countertops, hardwood floors and custom cabinets that are complimented with all appliances: Refrigerator, stove, oven, dishwasher, microwave and washer and dryer. Its granite counter tops include a dining area for 5.

The warm and cozy living room has hardwood floors, Waterford fireplace, pull out couch, 46' TV/DVD and a view of the private courtyard through the french glass door.

The queen bedroom has a sliding glass door with garden view, that leads to a private patio and is accessible by this bedroom only. The second bedroom has a king bed, small desk and wireless internet throughout.

Each bedroom is complimented with a full bath, each with a shower/tub combination. The bathrooms offer limestone floors, granite countertops and French white tiles.

When you book with us, you are booking directly with the owners, which means you are not dealing with a management company, or a 3rd party call center, or a computerized mobile application. Often times the 3rd party does not live in town or even know the property. We know our properties intimately, as we both own and manage them, and have a 15 year track record. Our thirteen five star reviews speak for themselves, including our cleanliness.

Upon booking, directions are emailed along with our contact information, Restaurant Recommendations, Winery and Activities Recommendations and Welcome Notes providing detailed information about the Beach Getaway. In this way, you can drive right to the Getaway, which has a lock box where you’ll use your unique code to enter. There is no need to set up an appointment. Inside, you'll enjoy premium amenities: shampoo, soaps, paper & cleaning products, and 5 star quality bath and beach towels, linens and cleaniness.

And we offer complimentary champagne upon your arrival.

While priced slightly higher than most 1BR/1BA’s, the Beach Getaway offers a comfortable stay for 2 couples or a small family. Most of the single hotel rooms are priced higher and yet our Beach Getaway offers so much more.

Or you can upgrade to our Santa Barbara Ocean Getaway VRBO #20308 which offers approximately 1/3 more square footage and slightly higher amenities. Or rent both, which are side by side, for 4 bedrooms and 4 baths.

We welcome a comparison to the 200+ vacation rentals and Hotels as we are unmatched in location, quality & price!

traveler reviews for this santa barbara condo rental

Fabulous!

Review submitted: July 24, 2014   Date of arrival: June 28, 2014

We stayed here for a week while in Santa Barbara for a wedding and what a wonderful week we had. Only wish we could have stayed longer! The condo was ideal for us and our teenage daughter - fabulous location - everything close by and within walking distance. Beds were so comfy with beautiful linens, kitchen well equipped with everything we may have needed and lots of towels and toiletries provided as well. We would definitely recommend this and would love to return again

Recommended for: age 55+, families with teenagers, tourists without a car

Great stay!

Review submitted: July 22, 2014   Date of arrival: July 5, 2014

We had a wonderful stay at the Santa Barbara Beach Getaway. The owners adequately described the property; it is very well maintained and clean with lots of upgrades. Everything was within a short walking distance; the beach, activities and shopping. We really did leave our car and parking worries behind. I'd would definitely book another stay!

Santa Barbara Escape

Review submitted: May 13, 2014   Date of arrival: May 7, 2014

This unit far exceeded our expectations in all areas. Does the notion "Under Promise... Over Deliver" ring true here. The unit was spotless, beds comfy really exceptional, location perfect. Close enough to beach and State street but far enough away to be quiet. Train station within 2 blocks worked well for visiting family from LA.

We will be back with regularity!

Recommended for: age 55+, tourists without a car, romantic getaway
