vacation rental description

A classy hideaway in the heart of downtown Santa Barbara, four blocks up from the beach(five walking blocks). 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 couch is unusual. A drawer pulls out to convert it to a fabulously comfortable queen size bed. 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. The owner grew up in the house (and also happens to be the artist). Relax and fell pampered in this thoughtfully re-designed and well loved home.

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!

Charming Small Hideaway right in the Thick of it

Review submitted: April 7, 2014   Date of arrival: April 4, 2014

We had a really nice time at "Baby Dux". Its tucked away just a short block off of state street right in the best area for good eats and drinks. You're just a short walk from the water and the property is beautiful. I'd recommend anyone that's looking for a unique location and that rental charm to look no further.

Owners response: Hi Tim,
Inga, Jon and I are so pleased you enjoyed your time in the Baby Dux.
We hope you return in the future.
Thank you so much for the kind words.
Best to you,
Laura

Wonderful studio

Review submitted: January 31, 2012   Date of arrival: December 29, 2011

My husband and I traveled to Santa Barbara for our anniversary. We stayed there for a week and loved this lovely studio. It was so convenient to park the car and walk down to the main strip for dinner or a day in the sun. We rode the bikes, although they are rusty and could use a tune-up (if you are reserving this place for the use of the bikes, you might be disappointed). The sofa bed is comfortable and the in-unit washer and dryer is a big plus! We came home with clean clothes and simply needed to put them away in our drawers. At first we didn't think there was heat in the bathroom but then realized that the face plates were switched (the one with the labels for the switches revealing there was heat was on another outlet). Location is wonderful although there are slightly thin wall so don't get rowdy. ;) Another renter was for a night but I guess they had reason...it was New Year's after all. :) We will definitely return!

Owners response: Thank you so much! We are constantly working to improve the property and will get those face plates switched around. We are also planning on building a shelter for the bikes so that they don't rust. Future guests can be confident that these issues will be addressed!
