vacation rental description

A classy hideaway in the heart of downtown Santa Barbara's entertainment district. The apartment is one block from State St., 2 blocks from the 'Funk Zone' and four blocks up from the beach. The house is in the heart of the entertainment district with shopping, music, dance and excellent restaurants just steps away. This artist designed studio apartment is small but beautiful. The apartment has exclusive use of the front porch of a lovely craftsman style house on a charmingly landscaped, fully enclosed private property in the center of the entertainment district . The elegantly designed corner bed couch is unusual. A drawer pulls out to convert it to a really comfortable queen size bed with tempurpedic topper. We can add an extra single bed if needed. There is HDTV, WIFI, washer/dryer and gated private off street parking. BBQ on your porch, eat fresh fruit from the fruit trees and use the free bicycles for car free, stress free enjoyment. Relax and fell pampered in this thoughtfully re-designed and well loved home. This is a 'quiet' property as it is one of three apartments in an old home so please understand that this is not a good choice for loud late night partying.

traveler reviews for this santa barbara studio rental

Location and charm in Santa Barbara

Review submitted: January 24, 2012   Date of arrival: January 19, 2012

This luxuriously decorated, impeccably clean, and thoroughly comfortable studio was a perfect place to spend five days back in Santa Barbara, my home for 30 years, until I moved away six years ago. Located just one block from State Street, with its convenient electric trolley service, shops, restaurants and just five blocks from the beach and Stearn's Wharf, this apartment is great for enjoying all that SB has to offer. Off-street parking, a very pleasant and surprisingly private porch, and bicycles are welcome amenities. Laura emailed me to let me know that the city planned an electic service outage one night and offered an extra flashlight or whatever else I felt I needed. It was not an inconvenience at all since I slept through the outage! She checked the next morning to be sure that all was well. I highly recommend this studio, especially as an alternative to similarly priced hotel rooms! Great location, thoughtful service, excellent value. Five stars!

Breathtaking,Beautiful,Perfect location

Review submitted: July 28, 2014   Date of arrival: July 26, 2014

Excellent , everyone is so friendly and helpful. Perfect location I went for Concert at SB Bowl.
Saturday night we walked to State St for dinner and then took walk to end of pier!!

Sunday went for 2 1/2 mile or more bike ride to the beach beautiful ride.
My son went exploring the coast by bike while I was at the show.
Baby Dux was so wonderful everything about it!! We definitely will make this a returning vacationing destination!!
A special thank you to Inga, Laura and Jon for sharing your lovely property and hospitality and professionalism.
It was Home Away from home didn't want to leave. And 99 Cent store so clues was an added bonus.
Thank you so much highly recommend this property!!

You sure squeezed a lot into a couple of days. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your accommodations and the fun things you got to do while you were here. We look forward to seeing you again in the near future.
Best to you both,

Review submitted: July 17, 2014   Date of arrival: July 13, 2014

Just off State Street and a short bike ride to the beach an wharf - Baby Dux is cozy and clean, and it has everything you need when traveling through. The hosts were extremely warm and welcoming.
There are even free bikes (although we didn't have time for it, it's great that they are there)
We loved it and will definitely come back!

Owners response: Hi Solvi,
We're thrilled you were so pleased you extended you're stay. Please come again, we'll love to see you.
Best,
Laura
