Guestbook comments from the owner

"Dear Bunny,

Thank you so much for all the thought and effort you put into your wonderful vacation cottage. love all the white fluffy towels and clean soft sheets. we’ve grilled many wonderful meals on your little deck grill. and we bought a great bottle of champagne and forgot to buy flutes, and of course, they were here. i think my favorite is the lovely rosemary bushes in front that make everything smell fresh and wonderful when i wake up each morning. it’s just so perfect, we’re already contemplating our return visit dates for next summer!

we’ve surfed, biked, segweyed, surried and strolled all over town. we’ve eaten at Tomas, The Lark, Opal, On the Alley, Pascucci, the Shellfish Company, Sambo’s, theScarletBegonia, the Public Market, Jane … we even joined the wine club at LaFonds! what a memorable vacation. my son, Cole, took this photo after dinner at Brophy Brothers last night, right before the waves crashed over the wall and soaked us all!"

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This is the most perfect cottage in Santa Barbara. We've stayed in many online rentals and this one exceeds the photos. Immaculanlty clean, beautifully decorated, all the comforts are above and beyond. We were in town for a wedding and were able to walk to almost every event. In our down time we walked to the beach (and loved that chairs, umbrella, and sand toys were provided) and downtown. Perfect location. We can't wait to come back and enjoy all the things Santa Barbara has to offer. Thank you for helping to make our trip so easy and enjoyable. BTW, the queen air bed is so comfortable, like sleeping on a bed for royalty.

Charming property just a short walk to the beach

  • 5 of 5

This property is delightful! It was very well equipped, immaculately clean and in a nice neighbourhood just a few blocks from the beach. There was a small hitch with us gaining access to the property as Bunny was later arriving with the key than agreed, but was very apologetic and gave us $100 for Dinner as recompense. We only stayed 3-nights at the end of a tour around California but wished we could've stayed longer

Fun in Santa Barbara

  • 5 of 5

On our trip from San Francisco to Santa Barbara, Beach Bunny Cottage was our final destination. Bunny greeted us at the cottage with a lovely welcome and great information about family friendly activities and lots of help oriented ourselves around town. Bunny even checked in with us during our stay to ensure we were enjoying ourselves. The cottage itself is very well stocked with tech and comfort amenities, a nice kitchen and plenty of extras like beach towels. There is plenty of comfortable seating inside and out and more than enough space for a family of four. The kids loved “their” loft! The cottage is easy walking distance to two different beaches, Stearn’s Wharf and State Street restaurants, shopping and movie theaters, but it is also just enough off the beaten path for a quiet afternoon on the back sun porch. We would definitely recommend it and would stay there again!

Beach Bunny Cottage is the best.

  • 5 of 5

Beach Bunny Cottage is located 2 blocks off the beach and a short walk from both Stearn's Wharf and the Marina. It is immaculate, has a secluded, private back porch with dining area and a full kitchen. We enjoy cooking our own breakfasts and it was perfect. A market is a walk away. Outstanding!

Beach Bunny Cottage was a perfect base for our first trip to Santa Barbara. It is walking distance to so much beach oriented, the pier, the neighborhood has an awesome grocery if you are inclined to cook in. If you so choose the cottage is well equipped and super clean. We had too little time to experience it all but walking to the beach and restaurants was great. The Funk Zone is actually walkable too for many winery tours, and no worries on driving back. But having a car leads to additional convenience as the cottage comes with parking permit and is easily accessible to the 101, downtown, the airport, and Monticito where the rest of our family hung out minutes away.

Bunny's photos do a great job representing the property. She meets and orients you to the property, provides proven restaurant recommendations and all communications were exceptionally easy. The property is spotless, the bed comfortable, the bay window to the street was perfect for enjoying watching the world go by while contemplating what next Santa Barbara attraction we wanted to experience. Perfect for us, our return to Santa Barbara will include return to Beach Bunny Cottage

Lovely cottage and fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with the location, very close to the harbor and just a short drive to downtown. Both the master bedroom and the Great room were quite large, bigger than expected. The king bed was quite comfortable and the master bath was lovely. The cottage was very clean and well maintained. We really did not use the outside back deck because we spent all our time taking walks along the beach and strolling State Street. The owners could not have been any nicer. Definitely would recommend this property to anyone who wants a well located cozy home away from home. Richard B, Chicago, IL

From the Owner

The location is super! 2 blocks to the beach, Harbor and Breakwater. The property is a darling petite 1928 Craftsman Cottage and we just could not resist purchasing it and turning it into a wonderful home-away-from-home.
