vacation rental description

The Exceptional Ocean Getaway is a rare retreat in both its location and amenities. A winning combination of location, quality and price!

We are located in the most desirable location in Santa Barbara, the Historic West Beach Area, steps away from the beach, Stearns Wharf, Harbor, Public Pool with large kiddy pool, World-class dining, and downtown shops, including our own local farmer's market. Leave your car and parking worries behind.

Within blocks are a European deli and market, bakery and sandwich shop, three wineries and a grocery store leaving little need to leave the neighborhood. In addition there are bike rentals, Segway rentals, peddle surrey rentals, a skate park, the Chase Palm Park with a merry-go-round and the site of a craft fair each Sunday that lines the beach boardwalk. 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.

The Ocean Getaway resides in a historical turn-of-the-century building and retains the charm of the days bygone. We spent a year working with craftsmans and designers to create a unique vacation rental reflecting the style of the early 1900's and Santa Barbara. The hand cast plaster gives it both a romantic and European feeling. And the 10-foot ceilings, Waterford fireplace, hard wood and limestone floors all add to its ambiance. You will not find a comparable vacation rental for the price - quality, ammenities & location.

Antique furnishings were hand selected and imported from Europe. One bedroom offers a king bed and the other a queen size bed. Both are complimented with an adjoining full bath. The king bedroom also has a 40' HDTV and DVD. The queen bedroom has a 20' HDTV and DVD. The bathrooms are immaculate - all new with limestone floors, granite countertops, romantic tub and shower with dual showerheads, and custom Santa Barbara-style cabinets.

The kitchen is a chef's dream. It has granite counter tops, limestone floors, and custom cabinets made by our own local cabinetmaker, PJ Mulligan. It has state-of-the-art appliances - SubZero refrigerator, Wolf's Chef top stove, convection oven, microwave, dishwasher, and, of course, a washer and dryer.

The living room is grand and warm - a great gathering area with a Waterford fireplace to add to its ambiance. It has a custom-built entertainment center, which houses a 50-inch Plasma TV, blueray DVD and stereo. A leather couch (queen-size sleeper) was brought in to accompany the two over-stuffed Venetian chairs. and there is an antique Louis XIV desk and high speed wireless internet access for your convenience.

Enjoy the views from the living room through the glass doors to the courtyard and grand Italian fountain. The private courtyard has abundant flowers and green shrubbery that can be enjoyed on chaise lounges and dining table and chairs. A large gas grill has also been provided for enjoyment of our local flavors.

The Ocean Getaway is a rare, high-quality, vacation destination in the heart of Santa Barbara! You will not find a comparable location and quality vacation rental for the price in Santa Barbara.

(A few helpful hints when comparing us to others. The Ocean Getaway is on the ground floor, 1 level, with FULL bathrooms and bedrooms, NO lofts or stairs. We also offer private reserved parking, as opposed to parking on the street which is a challenge being so close to the beach. Finally, we are not located on a commercial thorough fare, next to the Highway (APS or 101) or railroad tracks. We are in an upscale residential enclave in the West Beach Area, in Santa Barbara, 2 blocks to the Beach and State Street.)

traveler reviews for this santa barbara condo rental

Unbelievable place to stay !

Review submitted: May 13, 2014   Date of arrival: May 8, 2014

We absolutely loved this place. It acommadated 6 people comfortably. It is within walking distance of the beach, restaurants and shopping. Loved , loved , loved it ! The keys were easy to find and laundry soap, paper towels, coffee filters, beach towels , shampoo, hair dryers, ironing board and iron, just to mention a few, were all supplied. Each room had it's own t.v. and the bottle of champagne in the refrigerator was the BEST ! I would highly recommend it to anyone who would like a California beach getaway in Santa Barbara. I used to live there and so I knew my way around, but it was a real treat to walk into this place and feel right at home .

Are you kidding me?

Review submitted: May 10, 2014   Date of arrival: April 18, 2014

This was a trip that was planned for 20 years. My adult daughter and I arrived in sunny, gorgeous Santa Barbara to begin a week of relaxation and reflection. She was born there some 30 years ago and we have longed to return to reminisce. I have never used VRBO.com before and had no idea what to expect. We hit a WINNER on our first time on the site. This rental was PERFECT! The location was simply fantastic. It was beautiful, well appointed, clean, the private patio made us feel like millionaires. The two bedroom, two bath was perfect for us. The TV was the size of a drive in movie.
This rental unit exceeded our expectations by a mile in every way. We are grateful to have found such a terrific location and accomodation. We will return each April and hope that we are able to secure this unit. By the time we left, we felt it was "OURS" and we were jealous that someone else was coming to our "home." It's silly, I know. But that's how we felt.
And the communication and customer service prior to the rental was also friendly and professional. They took time to answer my many anxious questions with humor. It was an important and long awaited trip so I wanted it to go well.
PERFECT! We are grateful and have a week of fantastic memories at our "home" near the beach in sunny Santa Barbara!
Thank you!
Kind regards,
Terry Murphy

Ocean getaway

Review submitted: June 24, 2013   Date of arrival: June 21, 2013

The ocean getaway is a fabulous condo, a perfect place to stay when visiting Santa Barbara. The location is great - close to state street and a quick drive to the beach. The condo was extremely clean and well maintained. By far the best Vbro rental we've had yet! The home had been renovated and beautifully decorated. Beautiful prestine bathrooms and kitchen. Just lovely and we felt right at home. There is a wonderful little garden patio that is so cozy and relaxing to sit with a glass of wine. There is a large gated front yard that was great to let the kids run around it. The condo is gated with locks, so you feel very safe and secure. This property is a gem! We would definitely stay here again. I highly recommend this property.
