Overview

Santa Barbara Cabin Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

Nestle into this 1BR, two-story artistic guest house with loads of charm and an exotic Mediterranean style inside –just right for a romantic hideaway, it’s called the “Secret Spot”. Located on ""The Mesa"", it's tucked behind the property's main house. Its private entry leads to a lush tropical and tranquil little haven nestled above another vacation rental known as the “Hidden Cove” (VRBO Listing #201036).

There are high ceilings with skylights, a natural rock fireplace, log canopy loft bed under another skylight for star gazing, stained glass windows, mood lighting for that perfect ambiance, and a travertine stone shower with dual shower heads. The kitchen downstairs if fitted with stainless steel appliances and a set of French doors leads to the deck with a mosaic bistro table that overlooks the pond and waterfall. Lush banana trees, palms, and jasmine vines create a garden area with a tranquil tropical feel and a great vibe. There is a great barbecue area in this space too.

Our property is a two minute walk to the Mesa Lane steps that go down to the beach –a favorite surfing spot. We have boogie boards, beach chairs and bicycles for you to use. We are a lovely five minute walk to the main shopping area of ""The Mesa"" where you can find groceries and numerous restaurants (Mexican, Thai, Chinese, Italian, Tapas, and American) for your enjoyment.

Quite a special secret

  • 5 of 5

My husband, dog and I just left a wonderful 2 week stay at the Secret Spot and already want to go back. True, we were escaping a cold February in Minnesota, but Santa Barbara's charms, beauty, and warmth were all made so much more special when coming home to our own little slice of heaven every night. Close to the long stairway to the beach in the Mesa area and to Hendrys dog beach, which we used daily. Truly a unique stay!

Had a great time at this quaint cabin-feeling retreat. It was sweet, romantic and loved using the outdoor kitchen. Great for a romantic get away, and i'd love to come back!

Amazing little zen zone

  • 5 of 5

This place was just as it appears in the pictures and was warm, cozy and irrisistably cute! We stayed during the winter months so the fireplace was perfect! I would reccomend this place to anyone, it's quite a jem.

Reviewer Comments:

We stayed at this rental for Christmas vacation and found it to be super charming! Great location, dog friendly and really well appointed. Everything was provided for you, and there is even a fireplace, which we used everyday we were there as it was unseasonably cold. We did run out of toilet paper and could not find any spare, but I feel this was probably an oversight as even the logs for the fireplace were provided. The only other complaint, which is small, is that it took us several days to find the heaters, which are tucked away in a cubby behind the couch. Usually one doesn't need them in Santa Barbara, but again, it was unusually cold. My husband, dog and I stay in 2-3 rentals per year as we travel, and this was definitely one of the best.

Unique but dingy

  • 3 of 5

Everything is as pictured. A very unique and special space, no doubt about it. However, some small updates would go a long way to make this space feel more current and clean. The bedding and couches seemed like they had been cleaned but were super worn so they were not very inviting. The same goes for the outdoor setting ... You didn't really want to sit anywhere.
