Overview

Santa Barbara House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-3)

Welcome to the best that Santa Barbara can offer - Location, Quality and Price - that is unmatched even in the finest hotel suites and our beach competitors.

The Luxury Seaside Getaway is done in the Provence style with hand cast plaster, faux paining, 10 feet vaulted ceilings and hand-selected antiques giving it both a romantic and European feeling. A reflection of the charm of the days bygone.

The kitchen is a chefs dream, fully equipped with wolf stove, sub zero refrigerator, granite countertops and custom PJ Mulligan cabinetry done in their seafoam green, a local color of the santa barbara area.

The bathroom is immaculate with limestone throughout and large shower for 2 with incredible dual shower heads. It also has a separate Jacuzzi tub that sits below a beautiful piece of stone carved art - the maiden - to relax in after a day at the beach.

The warm living room offers a 36' HD TV with DVD with expanded cable. It also looks out upon a large private encased courtyard complete with Italian fountain, chaise lounges, table and chairs and gas grill. Enjoy the California sun in-between the walks to the beach and town.

Our Seaside Getaway is located in the most desirable location in santa barbara, 2 blocks from the beach, Las Banos public pool, Stearns Wharf, harbor, world-class dining, and downtown shops, including our own local farmers market. Leave your car and worries behind. We even offer RARE off street reserved parking.

This is all complimented with free wireless broadband internet access, luxury linens, Waterford fireplace, private washer and dryers, to name a few.

The Seaside Getaway is a rare, high quality vacation destination in the heart of santa barbara! You will not find a comparable vacation rental for the price!

Some helpful hints when comparing to our Beach Competitors: We are not adjacent to the railroad tracks or highway. We are not on a commercial thorough fare. We offer private on site reserved parking and are on one level. Finally, the Seaside bathroom is brand new and immaculately clean

About Melanie Cava

My husband and I were one of the original property owners to offer vacation rentals and have been in the business for 8+ years. We are unique because we own and manage our own properties. If you need something and call us, we answer and we persoanlly take care of your needs. This care and attention can be seen in the quality and ambiance of the property.

Melanie Cava purchased this house in 1998

Why Melanie Cava chose Santa Barbara

We choose this location literally because it is the best. Walk down 2 blocks and you are on the sand and the Las Banos public pool is there. Walk 2 more blocks over and you are at the Wharf and State Street (main stree downtown) - so we are walking distance to all - Others will say they are but you have to walk 1+ miles just to get here. And we offer private reserved parking so you don't have to fight for a spot on the street. Finally we are in a nice residential area, not on a commercial thorough fare or next to the highway or railroad tracks for which some of the vacation rentals literally shake. One golden rule of real estate is location location and we have it.

Perfect experience- from booking until departure. Melanie was prompt to respond. She provided us with everything you could possibly need to know about Santa Barbara and the wine region. It made our vacation planning a breeze! The rental is lovely- new, fresh, comfortable, cozy and clean. The kitchen is a dream with top quality appliances. You can not beat the location- walking distance to the beach, shopping and restaurants. We are looking forward to returning!

Bravo Melanie and Todd

  • 5 of 5
The two of us enjoyed our stay in this beautiful property. We live in a loft condo in NY and felt at home in this attractively appointed and comfortable Santa Barbara condo. Everything was high style and since we cook and eat at home, having this amazing kitchen was a plus. A private space for our washer and dryer was a pleasant surprise. We're hoping to return in 2015.

Upscale condo in a great location!

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay in this condo. The gourmet kitchen was a delight and the bath luxurious. We took advantage of the private courtyard/patio with barbecue and lounge chairs on more than one occasion. With free parking, free laundry, free Wifi and the ability to make some meals made this condo a very economic option versus a hotel. We would stay here again! P.S. the owner's Melanie and Todd were very responsive to any requests.

Gorgeous, private unit in a great location!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here 2 nights while our daughter was attending a conference - it was about the same cost as a hotel room, and there were few available. The Getaway unit and the entire building are outstanding. The unit is impeccably clean, secure, comfortable, well-equipped, private and beautifully appointed with high-end furnishings, granite counters, stainless appliances, dual rain-shower heads, jetted tub, Spanish/Mediterranean architectural details, etc. Loved the outside step-down patio, surrounded by an 8-ft shrub and wrought-iron, locked gate. The location is walking distance to the beach, wharf, State st., restaurants, and an easy drive everywhere else. Parking is in a secluded area behind the building. We would have stayed a third night, but the unit was already reserved. Didn't realize we were hitting S. Barbara for the summer solstice, one of the busiest weekends of the year. Thank you to our host and hostess. We'll be back.

Simply Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I just finished a month long stay in the Seaside Getaway and cannot adequately express how pleased we are about our whole experience there. The unit is meticulously and luxuriously appointed, equipped and kept to meet a guest's every possible comfort and need. The bed and bedroom are luxurious and comfortable, the kitchen a dream to cook in, the living room and patio are comfortable for entertainment. and the large immaculate private laundry room is an amazing surprise. Although the unit is one of eight, the building is structured for optimum privacy and gives one the feeling that yours is the only unit within the building. Situated within an extremely quiet residential neighbourhood, the Getaway's centralised location and proximity to the beach and downtown make it perfect for exploring Santa Barbara by foot, bicycle, car or public transportation. Melanie and Todd are also gracious and attentive landlords who ensured that our needs were met promptly and with utmost professionalism. All around, it was a wonderful, wonderful stay.
