About the property


Santa Barbara Vacation Rentals is pleased to offer this newly renovated duplex located near East Beach, which is often the first beach seen upon entering Santa Barbara. East Beach is separated from West Beach by Stearns Wharf, and is conveniently located to downtown Santa Barbara. You and your family will enjoy this beautiful beach that is long, sandy, and deep even during high tide. It's also bordered by a grassy, tree-lined park which tends to be a popular spot for locals who like to run or bike ride. East Beach is also where some of the most competitive volleyball players from around the world play and there is usually a game going every day, year-round.


* Front 2 bedroom unit:

1st bedroom: Queen, 2nd bedroom: 2 Twins Bathroom: 1 Full Bath

* Back 3 bedroom unit:

1st bedroom: Queen, 2nd Bedroom: Queen, 3rd bedroom: 2 twins Bathroom: 1 Full bath

*Detached Laundry Room/Bath:

Laundry Room and 1 Full Bath attached to the garage.

This newly remodeled vacation rental has two full gourmet kitchens with stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops, and wood floors throughout. From the front unit, you will enjoy admiring the beautiful ocean view, or enjoy the outdoor patio and BBQ after a day at the beach or a day of exploring beautiful Santa Barbara.

The duplex is an easy walk or a lovely bike ride along the beach promenade to the Santa Barbara Zoo, the East Beach volleyball courts, Stern's Wharf, Andree Clark Bird Refuge, and the Sunday weekly Art Show along East Beach. Once you arrive you can forget your car as you are only 1/2 block to the Santa Barbara electric shuttle (only $.25 a ride!) that will take you to the wharf, the Harbor and State Street with all its fine restaurants and shopping! The duplex is also only a 1/2 block to Tri-County Produce, an organic local grocery and Trader Joe's is just a 2 minute drive. If you don't want to cook, walk down to the owner's favorite place, The East Beach Grill for a fabulous breakfast or lunch just footsteps from the waves!

The owner's family has enjoyed this beach house and the surrounding area for years and we are confident that once you stay here, you will want to come back year after year.

Family retreat for local wedding

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this rental property. We needed enough space for our family while we were in town celebrating our daughters wedding. The condos were clean, beautifully decorated and well stocked with linens and towels. The close access to the beach and bike path were amazing. We loved being able to walk to the corner fresh produce market as well. The rental company was very accomodating !

Perfect convenient location

  • 5 of 5

We rented both units for four nights for a family wedding in Santa Barbara. The units had a wonderful ocean view and breeze from the front unit, and both units were very clean and well maintained. The location was within walking distance (1/4 mile) from the wedding reception at the Cabrillo Pavilion Arts Center. We would rent it again anytime we wanted a place near the beach in Santa Barbara.

Santa Barbara Visit - Would not stay in hotel room again!

  • 5 of 5

We were visiting my niece for a wedding in Santa Barbara. The place was clean and although we did not cook much, the kitchen included everything we would need. Located within walking distance to the beach and to everything. We felt safe in this area. My brother was staying in Fess Parker's resort and the cost of his room was slightly more than our 5 bedroom, two kitchen, three bathroom duplex! If we needed any service or maintenance to the house, we would call and they would be there within 30 minutes during work hours! Our family would consider staying there for another week. In fact, we would consider purchasing a house in this location.

Wanted to extend our Stay!

  • 5 of 5

So...we stayed for a week and NEVER turned on a TV. Seriously, we were so close to everything and stayed busy the whole time. House was as promised. Recently re-done and very tasteful too. Clean, comfy and away from the crowds. The property is 4 to 5 houses from east beach. Your view looks across a park to East beach. Fess Parker's Resort is on the other side of the park. Next time we'll stop by for a snack. We could have stayed another week.
