About Laura Wildman
My career has been as an artist and teacher. I grew up in this house. Transforming the family home into a home for guests has been a favorite art project. Meeting so many good people and providing a home for happy memories has been so satisfying. My cousin Laura has taken over as manager and she is the one who will be communicating with your and will take care of your needs while in Santa Barbara. She is wonderful.
Laura Wildman purchased this Apartment in 1993
Why Laura Wildman chose Lower State
Our family were renters in the house for 30+years before we were able to buy it in 1993. My grandfather ran a washing machine repair business in the house. He was was known as ''Papa Duck' to the children in our extended family. Thus The Dux! Santa Barbara retains an outsized sense of community. I was reminded of Santa Barbara’s good heartedness recently, watching the last SB Solstice Parade. It was a lovefest of generous smiles and kind intention… Neighbors singing, dancing and celebrating up the State Street; wearing fewer clothes and enjoying it more. I hope you might find some of that Santa Barbara warmth and friendliness at The Dux. State Street is a block away and the beach 5 walking blocks. There is free use of bicycles which I highly recommend as the very best way to enjoy the town.

Great apartment, great location !
Communications with the property owner were terrific, as were the instructions they sent us. Checking was easy and the apartment was exactly as shown online, kitchen well outfitted and we appreciated the coffee maker and coffee supplies. We had a great time in Downtown Santa Barbara and would definitely stay here again. Thank you
Fantastic location, everything u need for a great trip
Felt right at home. We walked to the beach, shops, restaurants, even the 24 hr fitness to work out. Tons of wine tasting rooms easily within walking distance. Did not have to use our car or Uber. Will definitely be back!
Short and Sweet
My hubby and I stayed only one night, I wish we could have stayed longer to take advantage of the entire place. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need (minus the food), the bedroom is cozy and comfortable, we loved the patio and the fire pit! We stayed in, had some wine, and enjoyed the evening.
Everything has clear instructions, so there’s no way to mess things up.
Unfortunately during our stay the dishwasher was broken and the t.v. In the living room didn’t work properly. Laura (manager) offered to come by to fix but we decided not to and use the t.v. In the room instead. There was a power outage that night (the entire block went out) so the water heater had to be reset, and Laura and her husband took care of this right away too! Thank you!
Before you leave you have to load the wash, pull the sheets from the bed, and throw away the trash, things I feel should be taken care of by cleaning crew...but I did it anyway because I enjoyed my stay and wish to come back!

Awesome. Walkable. Effortless
Great location! We were able to walk or bike everywhere we wanted to go!
Lovely Mountain views from the deck
A few things to think about. You need a stool in the bathroom shower. The sheets and towels are very dark and they should be white / VRBO rules I think. Too many pillows and the coffee table is way too big. Not much room for guests. The deck is really lovely and great to have parking. Enjoyed the bikes!
