1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 2
This is the perfect 1BR spot for those needing to retreat from the hustle-and-bustle of everyday life in order to rejuvenate and re-awaken the soul. Beyond an Asian style Torrey gate, lies a special little getaway and sacred space known as the “Hidden Cove”. A wooden gate on the left side with cobalt blue stained glass, leads to this sanctuary on ""The Mesa"", in beautiful Santa Barbara. Unique custom made doors open to the stillness within. Its private entry leads to a lush tropical and tranquil little haven nestled below an upstairs vacation rental, also available, known as the “Secret Spot” (VRBO Listing #155007).
Our property is a two minute walk to the Mesa Lane steps that go down to the beach –a favorite surfing spot. We have boogie boards, beach chairs and bicycles for you to use. We have a lovely five minute walk to the main shopping area of ""The Mesa"" where you can find groceries and numerous restaurants (Mexican, Thai, Chinese, Italian, Tapas, and American) for your enjoyment. The neighborhood is peaceful and safe and is a short drive to downtown Santa Barbara and the harbor area. Come pamper your soul at the Hidden Cove and leave with a peaceful mind.

About the Manager

Nothing but wonderful things to say. The unit was adorable and very clean. We were disappointed there wasn't a stove or oven but there was plenty to eat nearby. It should be noted that this unit appears to be attached to the primary residence. It didn't bother our stay but there was some noise from the occupant if that's a concern for others. Turnkey was also very informative and couldn't have made the process easier.
Perfect little getaway, steps from the beach!
We had such a nice time at the "Hidden Cove." The unit was tucked into the back of a home on a very quiet street in The Mesa. Everything was clean and there were clear instructions for using any appliances. The unit also has a very nice patio/outdoor space, where we did some BBQ-ing and drank wine by candlelight. We also hope the owner didn't mind that we snagged the occasional avocado that fell from the tree outside our front door. :-)
Best of all-- this unit is just a short walk from Arroyo Burro/Hendry's Beach and the Douglas Family Preserve. We loved taking walks along the beach and through the park every morning and evening. It certainly made the stay unforgettable!
Hidden Cove - Perfect Weekend Hide Away
The photos and descriptions of this studio size rental were spot on. Perfect size for two people and a dog - we did not do any cooking here though. The kitchen is small, but it is possible to make a meal. Very clean, although a little dated and over decorated. Everything necessary was provided: great wireless, shower soap, coffee with a bean grinder!, bikes, dog leash. Owners were around and were very hospitable. We primarily went to the nearby Burro Beach and wine tasting. Because it is at the shore, driving is require to get everywhere, but not a big deal.
Clean, private, great decor
Very clean, tucked away in the far corner of the backyard behind one main gate and one private gate. Great landscaping and fountains - you really feel transported. Decor inside was very nice, and great lighting. Clean drinking water was provided so you don't have to drink tap. Wi-fi was more than adequate for our needs. We didn't spend much time in the outdoor area because it was raining the weekend we were there. Jetted bathtub was a nice treat.
The only negative thing I have to say is that we were woken up pretty early (by our vacation standards) at 8-9 by footsteps and noise upstairs, sounds like maybe a young child was staying above us.
Old School Santa Barbara in the best way
The property manager was very helpful.
The vacation rental was spotless.
I was very happy with the location.
I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
It was a great experience and served out purposes perfectly. 4 guys stayed here for a 3 day cycling trip. One on the bed, one on the couch, one on a blow up bed provided, and one in a tent outside. The place is perfectly suited to a couple, maybe even with a couple kids. Nevertheless, the 4 of us enjoyed it very much. Perfect jumping off place to ride Gibralter, Old San Marcos Pass or the ride down to Ventura. Half a block to an amazing beach makes it well worth any lack of creature comforts in the place. I can't say enough about the non-manicured but extremely artful and peaceful outside areas.
Cute and cozy in quiet neighborhood
The property is located in a good area close to Mesa Beach and the Douglas Preserve; both great for walking with dogs. The unit has a nice closed in patio with fountain and is quiet peaceful. The one drawback we experienced was when the adjoining "Secret Spot" unit was occupied, there was a lot of noise from above and next door. Also, we found the kitchen was not very easy to cook meals in (no real stove). Other than those two things, we did enjoy our stay; maybe just better for shorter term.
