Welcome to our bright & sunny 1 bedroom & 1 bathroom Affordable Beach Getaway. We are located 2 blocks from the Beach, Stearns Wharf, Public Pool, Harbor, world-class dining, and downtown shops, including our own local Farmers market. Leave your car and parking worries behind.

If you are tired of walking, all of these attractions can be reached by a local 25 cents-a-ride shuttle bus that runs up State Street and along the ocean front from the harbor to the zoo.

Why Melanie Cava chose Santa Barbara

There are so many Santa Barbara properties available for rent. The number one difference between all of them are location, location, location. The closer to the beach and the closer to Santa Barbara the more expensive the real estate. We are 2 blocks to the beach and downtown, not on a commercial thorough fare, not next to the highway or railroad track and not a bus ride or car ride away from downtown. We combine our location with the best pricing and the best amenities. Finally, we are immaculately clean

Perfect

  • 5 of 5
If you want a very comfortable and clean place to stay in Santa Barbara which is a 5 minute walk to the beach and harbour and a 15 minute walk to the main shopping area, restaurants and bars then we have the secret for you. THIS PLACE. My wife and I spent a week here when visiting from England and felt we could have not done any better had we tried every property in town! Melanie was so helpful; her welcome pack and recommendations were spot on and she got back to us with answers to any questions so quickly. We would have no hesitation in coming back here again.

Wonderful suprize

  • 5 of 5
We needed a place to stay in SB at the last minute. We had stayed at another one of Melanie and Todd's properties in the past so I contacted them and they had the affordable beach getaway available at the last minute.
What a pleasant suprize. The unit is a one bedroom but the layout made it feel very roomy. The furnishings are very upscale yet comfotable and chic. Every detail was thought out and attended to in this unit. The balcony was a huge plus.
The location was great- we walked to dinner and breakfast the next morning.
The entire building is well kept, quiet and very upscale mediterrainean.
We would highly recommend any of Melanie and Todd's properties.
They do an amazing job!

Well located comfort

  • 5 of 5
This is the third time we have come from the UK and stopped in one these owners' vacation rentals at this location and we will return. A great location with good comfortable accommodation and a large balcony (even with a small view of the mountains) to soak up the morning sun. Easy walk to beach, harbour, wharf and State Street and with a reserved parking space, easy driving to all of Santa Barbara's attractions and beyond. Owners responded very quickly to any request we had and the bed alone is worth coming for. Quiet, comfortable and very relaxing! Well recommended.

Perfect stay in SB!

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic stay! The unit was absolutely perfect- beautifully decorated, quiet, clean and in a prime location. We had on site, secure parking, an adorable balcony and all the creature comforts of home. We did not want to leave. We've already told all our friends and will definity return in the near future. It was also helpful to have received suggestions on restaurant and local attractions from Melanie.

There are 700+ vacation rentals in the 'Santa Barbara Area'. Vacation rentals pricing follow the same trend as real estate pricing - location, location. The farther out you go out of Santa Barbara, the less expensive the real estate and the better the vacation rental pricing.

We are located in the best area of Santa Barbara - the Historic West Beach Area - 2 blocks to the Beach and downtown Santa Barbara, yet not on a commercial thoroughfare, not next to the railroad tracks or not adjacent a highway. And we offer private reserved parking.

In addition to location, look at our property and compare amenities and pricing. We are unmatched.
