Beautiful Home and Personalized Service

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I took my Mom up to Santa Barbara last weekend for an early Mothers Day Trip. Mom had never been so it was a quick 90 minute drive from L.A. to this beautiful home we stayed in. Gonzalo the property manager met us and gave us the key and showed us the place. He was so kind and answered all of our questions. The rental was modern with a nice kitchen area, living room area, and most important to me nice comfortable beds with good bedding. We're talking 500++ thread count sheets! Our favorite part was the front porch which is private and has a table and chairs to sit out on and drink wine and eat nibbles. The home is only a 5 block walk to State street. We didn't need to drive anywhere from the house. David the owner was very easy to work with as well. He answered all of my questions and made the rental transaction easy. I must end on a personal note. When the 3 of us got back to the house after our 1st day exploring Santa Barbara on the doorstep was a beautiful arrangement of flowers that Gonzalo had picked for my Mom with a nice note. It was really touching and made my Mom so happy. We would definitely stay at this rental again and highly recommend it to anyone visiting Santa Barbara or the surrounding areas. Thank you Gonzalo & David!

5 Star Property

  • 5 of 5

I would definitely recommend this property. It was lovely. Very well kept and well designed. It was really clean and the customer service of the owner and property manager top notch. There was parking and a lovely private patio area. It was also great that you could walk to the center of Santa Barbara. I highly recommend this property (vs others I have stayed at). I would definitely stay there again.

Great spot with a fantastic Patio

  • 5 of 5

My Husband and I with our two small children rented this condo for a two night stay. They were able to accommodate an early check in which was super helpful. The condo was in a great location in regards to downtown and State street. The beds were excellent quality and we all raved over the showerhead. When traveling with small kids having the extra space of a condo was great but I didn't feel like we had to give up any off the 5 star amenities you would typically find at a hotel.

Great spot to enjoy all of Santa Barbara! Very comfortable apartment with luxurious touches throughout. Clean and well maintained. The owner was gracious and obviously takes pride in providing the best experience for his guests. Lovely and safe residential area. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Good location, great hosts!

  • 4 of 5

Nice quiet house (it is set back from the road, at the back of the property) just a 10-min walk to State Street. The house is clean and well-maintained; just like it looked in the photos. Only drawback to the layout for us was that both bedrooms open directly off the main living room area, so we had to be very quiet in the rest of the house once we'd put our baby to bed. (The floor plan would not be an issue for a family or group of friends who keep more or less the same sleeping hours.)

Gonzalo greeted us warmly when we arrived, gave us the tour and recommendations for activities nearby. When he discovered that we enjoyed taking our baby out for walks in the stroller, he even went the extra mile to text me later in the week with detailed directions for another walk we could take her on.

A wonderful home-away-from-home for our week in Santa Barbara!

Location

From the Owner

I fell in love with the property based on its location and potential. An original 1919 Craftsman house, I have spent the past 13 years rebuilding and expanding as a historic reconstruction. Keeping the historic charm but also adding the conveniences and cleaniness of a modern property.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Santa Barbara at 5 Miles Nearest Barpub : Arnoldi's Cafe at 0.5 Miles Nearest Golf : Montecito Country Club at 1 Miles Nearest Train : SB Amtrak at 1 Miles Nearest Motorway : Highway 101 at 0.75 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Arnoldi's Cafe, Los Agaves at 0.5 Miles Nearest Beach : East Beach at 0.75 Miles Car: recommended

Ideally located just 5 blocks from the historic quarter of Santa Barbara, and just 6 blocks to the Beach allows for a unique experience in our unit -- all that is Santa Barbara -- historic, lively downtown and leisure beach activities. A perfect vacation spot
