vacation rental description

La vista Del Oceano (view of the ocean) named for the many spots you'll catch ocean glances in this lovely, quaint California beach cottage home. Built in 1928, but lovingly restored with modern features in 2007, while keeping the original charm of the era. From the classic O'keefe & Merritt stove in the exceptional kitchen to the hardwood floors throughout to the glass door knobs and push button light switches, it's a nostalgic journey with all the modern amenities.

Both bedrooms have a queen sized bed with comfortable mattresses and luxurious bedding to assure a restful nights sleep in this very quiet neighborhood.

A very short 10 minute walk to the beach or cruise downhill 2 minutes by car or the provided pair of beach cruisers with baskets. If you wish there are beach chairs (4), beach umbrella, boogie boards(2) and wet suits(2) provided with our home.

For relaxing after a day of adventure there is a lovely patio with hot tub spa in the back under the shade of the sprawling avocado tree (feel free to sample as many as you please, along with sweet oranges from the front yard).

Along with the close proximity to the beach, La Vista Del Oceano is very close (5 minutes) to the convenience of the many shops, restaurants, and amenities in the mesa 'village'. If you desire to eat healthy and cook in there is the Lazy Acres grocery, as well as, an exceptional fresh, organic produce market nearby.

The west beach, wharf, downtown state street areas are all within a 5 minute drive and there are safe bike lanes should you choose to cycle. Be sure to make the short walk up the street above our home (3 hundred yards) for the most spectacular view of the ocean and channel islands you are likely to see anywhere in the Santa Barbara area.

Whether you are seeking a romantic couples getaway, a fun family time or have just learned to love the area as we have, La Vista Del Oceano should meet all of your needs.

traveler reviews for this santa barbara cottage rental

True definition of perfection!

Review submitted: April 21, 2014   Date of arrival: April 17, 2014

I cannot begin to describe the beauty and charm of this house. It is perfect for our trip. Everything you could possibly need to cook, have a holiday dinner, relax, unwind...the house and the neighborhood has it. I felt like I was walking and staying at my own house. The furniture and kitchen gadgets, dinnerware...everything is top quality. It is clean beyond description.

The owners are very, very responsive and friendly from inquiry to actual arrival and stay. I felt like I am a close friend borrowing their beautiful house for the weekend instead of a "renter".

Thank you for allowing my boys and I to capture some memories for a lifetime. I will definitely come back when I'm visiting my son in college again.

Perfect for this family of 4

Review submitted: April 14, 2014   Date of arrival: April 6, 2014

We spent 4 nights at this property with our two sons (age 6.5 and 2.5) and it was perfect for us. The back bedroom is plenty big for a pack & play (which we brought for the younger boy) in addition to the queen bed that's already there. From the front bedroom, we were greeted in the morning by bird song and (on a couple of the days) distant foghorns. There's also a bunch of family games (Monopoly, Cranium, and a few others) plus some children's books. As other reviewers have stated, the kitchen is VERY well stocked (comment from my wife: "This is the first house we've ever rented where the knives are actually sharp"). The neighbors are friendly and the location is great - there's a good selection of restaurants nearby and (if you're into such things) you can go for a run/jog run along the shoreline (about 5 miles roundtrip from the house to the end of the Marina jetty and back). Little touches, like having sand toys available, and super comfy beds with soft sheets, made this a very special home to stay in.
We'll be back...

What a wonderful place

Review submitted: April 3, 2014   Date of arrival: February 28, 2014

We'd like to thank the owners of this beautifull property for making us so welcome during our week in Santa Barbara. There was not a single thing that did not meet the expectations we had from the Internet and it all even exceeded our ideas by far once we got there.
The cottage is so beautifully furnished and with such a lot of taste that we found it hard to leave it for sightseeing from time to time. We felt at home from the moment we entered it as we love places that have a soul and story to tell.
The kitchen is excellenty equipped and for those who like to do their own cooking the nearby Lazy Acres Food Market is a must. We couldn't believe our eyes when we first went there.
Among so many other things we truly enjoyed our morning or afternoon coffees on the front porch with its amazing ocean views and always a juicy orange at hand from the beautiful tree in front of the cottage. What else could you expect for a happy day?
We will surely be back one day!
