Beach Cottage Retreat

  • 4 of 5

We took our Mother to this beach cottage for a quick get-away to celebrate her 80th Birthday. The bungalow was quaint, one-level and allowed her to move around comfortably with her walker. The location is perfect... a nice walk or short drive (in our case) to the beach, shops & restaurants. Our favorite part was enjoying coffee & breakfast in the yard which is beautifully landscaped and like a little slice of heaven!! :)

Great cottage close to the beach

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay at this cottage. It is as described and the owner is very accessible. Its a wonderful location with a short 2 block walk to Butterfly Beach. Which we managed at least twice a day. It is close to grocers, shops etc. There is a lovely garden/yard that is very pleasant to sit in and relax. Would recommend this.

Awesome weekend escape

  • 5 of 5

We had a Girls getaway, reunion of 4 college roommates, for the weekend. The cottage was perfect in so many ways. Great location for walking to the beach, restaurants, and riding bikes to downtown Santa Barbara and the funk zone. It was in excellent condition and very clean and comfortable. It is in a nice quiet neighborhood as well. Alexi was very accommodating and helpful. We wouldn't hesitate to come back for the next girls weekend!

Serene Beach Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at the 'Serene Beach Bungalow' for his sisters wedding at the Four Seasons this Spring. It was such an ideal location. We were able to walk over to the hotel for all the festivities surrounding the wedding day, as well be so close to the beach, shops and restaurants. On top of the convenience and beauty of the location, we also really appreciated how warm and welcoming it felt. The backyard was just a lovely little bonus. We took advantage of the homes many amenities during our stay.

We are definitely planning to come back, this time with our little ones.

From the Owner

The new fully remodeled layout has the kitchen facing south to through the side garden. Making the sun and moon rising, visually stimulating. Also when both front and back doors are ajar, a really nice breeze flows through the house. Fenced side and back yards are beautifully landscaped through out as well. The redwood deck and "Hot Springs" Hot Tub are simply "a little slice of heaven".
