Luxurious Villa Malaga - Walk to Downtown and Beach

Wonderful! 4.9/5 -
(40 traveler reviews)


Property Details

Updated: Aug 26, 2016
Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5+ Baths (Sleeps 7)

Welcome to the beautiful Villa Malaga, the very essence of Andalusian Spain and Santa Barbara. Imagine stepping into the light filled great room, with its polished Spanish tile floors and white washed stone surfaces. Banks of windows in each room overlook the private courtyard, lawn and rose garden. With the windows open (or standing out on one of your 4 decks) you can hear the wonderful bubbling of the grand fountain, day and night.

This luxurious villa has over 2,000 sq ft of living space with 3 bedrooms, 2 ½ baths with a Queen sized bed in both the Master Suite and the second bedroom, with over-sized bunk bed in the third bedroom. The master bath has a large walk-in shower and an extra deep Jacuzzi tub. There are four levels in the Villa. All bedrooms are on a second level of the house while kitchen and living room are on a third one. All floors are accessible by elevator besides roof deck.

There are three fireplaces, flat screen television, surround sound and internet access. All linens, towels, furniture and artwork are of the highest quality. Villa Malaga is located well off-street and is surrounded by lush landscaping and greenery that obscure other buildings, providing a special sense of privacy and security.

The roof deck, with sweeping views of the American Riviera and glistening Pacific Ocean, provides that extra outdoor living space for fresh-air dining or just relaxing and enjoying the sun and sea breezes. There is an outdoor fireplace on this deck inlaid with a hand painted Spanish mural, a separate fountain and 360 degree views of all that Santa Barbara has to offer.

Villa Malaga is located in Cinque Terre, a stunning building just two blocks from the beach and four blocks from Stearn’s Wharf in the heart of the Water Front District. It is completely gated and has a private garage with a dumb waiter that will whisk your provisions to both the sleeping and living levels.

The gourmet kitchen is fully stocked, featuring custom cabinets, a Sub-Zero refrigerator, 6-burner commercial grade Viking range and an over-sized GE convection/microwave.

Spacious Mediterranean design, awesome location!

  • 5 of 5

We had extended family in Santa Barbara for the UCSB graduation of our son and needed a unit that would accommodate grandparents, parents and brother of the graduate. The Villa Malaga met all of our expectations. The light filled rooms with decks opening to the outdoors and the unique rooftop patio were extraordinary. It was very spacious and well appointed - perfect for our stay on a special occasion. We would highly recommend it and look forward to visiting again soon!

Fantastic stay in this beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our girlfriends getaway retreat. It is beautifully designed and furnished with style and comfort in mind. Spotlessly clean too! The kitchen is very well equipped with quality cookware and utensils. The upstairs patio roof is so charming that we spent a lot of our nights there stargazing in front of the fireplace. The location of this home is really ideal,within minutes driving or walking from everything we wanted to do - beach, State Street shopping and dining. The owner was super responsive and accommodating to our requests. Check in was easy with clear instructions provided. We can't wait to return!

We had a wonderful stay at Malaga residence. The home is close to beach and town center; walked everywhere. Well equipped kitchen and great layout. We had several visitors throughout our stay, and residence worked well for several people. Could not have been more pleased - will come again!

Perfect for multi-generational family stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 (grandparents, parents and adult children) had a perfect stay in Villa Milaga. The main floor is a very laid out, spacious open room with sitting area, half bath, eating table for 6, and living area. French doors at both ends plus lots of windows make it feel even larger. The beds are comfortable, and everything is very clean and well maintained. The two guest bedrooms share a bath in the hall and are a little dark--but the rest of the house is so inviting that we did not spend much time in the bedrooms. The kitchen is very well appointed with everything you would need to prepare a gourmet meal to enjoy on the beautiful rooftop terrace. The elevator is very convenient for those who don't like stairs. Easy walk to State Street, the Funk Zone and the beach. Although it did not bother us, if you like to keep windows open the neighbors can stay up late on their own rooftops on weekends and there is a train that goes through very early in the morning. The fan in the master bedroom was very successful in drowning out the outside noise. I would recommend this house to anyone!
