LUXURIOUS NEW GUEST CASITA WITH STUNNING MOUNTAIN VIEW-CLOSE TO DOWNTOWN & BEACH

Santa Barbara House Rental Photos and Description

Studio/1 bathroom, sleeps 1-3

Come stay in this luxurious newly built and furnished Mediterranean-style 2nd story casita (or guest studio) in beautiful Santa Barbara. The casita includes such details as gorgeous reclaimed Canadian Douglas Fir wood floors, French entry doors, and custom maple kitchen cabinets with granite tile counter tops. The casita encompasses the entire 2nd floor above a detached, free-standing garage--no shared walls and no living spaces below! At 450 square feet inside, it offers a spacious comfortable feeling & tons of amenities. There are windows all around with amazing views of the City and mountains, or enjoy the views on your own generous balcony. Or wander through the garden to rest and relax, soak up the sun or perhaps enjoy a picnic, in the back yard! And it's located approximately 1 mile from downtown or 2 from the beach, Stearns Wharf and the Harbor. This is a perfect home away from home for business & vacation!

The studio is situated over detached/free-standing garage at the back of a 1/4 acre corner lot. Entry to the studio is by a 17-step exterior staircase to studio. There are 2 cats who live on the property (outside only); owners live in main house on the property and are happy to help.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Hi Mary,

I tried to submit this review vis the HomeAway link, but I don't think it took.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Santa Barbara was an ideal January vacation destination and the Casita was the perfect place to call home during our stay. The Casita is beautifully furnished and decorated and well equipped. Extras such as the thick towels, the handy collection of guidebooks and the bountiful fruit trees to admire in the yard put it over the top. On the Saturday when I took the car for a Market Forays cooking lesson (highly recommended) that included stops at the harbor for fresh fish, the farmer's market for fresh veggies and the cheese store for aged cheese, my husband was able to walk from the Casita to State Street to take in a movie at the Santa Barbara Film Festival. We would highly recommend the Casita to friends and earnestly hope to return ourselves.



All the best.

Beautiful Casita in Santa Barbara

  • 5 of 5
What a beautiful property. This was my first VRBO experience and I would gladly do it again. Tom and Mary were easy to work with and the property was exactly as advertised. Such a quaint spot with amazing views. Only a 1 or so from downtown. Super clean, quiet and peaceful. Just the vacation I needed. We will be back again for sure!

Great place to get away and enjoy Santa Barbara

  • 5 of 5
This casita was perfect for our 4 day Santa Barbara getaway. It was close to downtown and close to the main beaches. Very comfortable and clean, and had all the amenities we needed. The owner was very helpful and prompt with her emails. I would definitely stay here again on our next trip to Santa Barbara. Thank you again!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at the casita for 3 nights and had a wonderful stay. Mary and Tom were extremely welcoming and helpful. Mary responds to emails promptly, and our check-in and check-out were a breeze. The casita is easy to find, and is a short drive (5 mins) from downtown Santa Barbara or the waterfront. Grocery stores are down the street, making it easy to pick up food to make at the casita. The views from the apartment are stunning!! After busy days in the city, we were happy to relax on the balcony and enjoy the sun sets overlooking their cute garden and gorgeous view of the mountains and city. It is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need - blankets, towels, and a fully stocked kitchen with large and small appliances. We would be happy to stay at the casita again - highly recommended!

Fantastic Stay!

  • 5 of 5
From Mary's reply on our inquiry till our check-out, everything was perfect.
Fresh flowers and fruits made casita more cozy and I felt love in every corner. It was clean, cozy & felt like at home. The location is very convenient & close to everything. The neighborhood is quite enough & the views are great from the window... Thank a lot! Can't wait to rent it again.

.Once again, we spent the month of February at the Casita. The view of the mountains is fabulous. The Casita is well equipped with everything you could possibly want or need. Offering luxury linens...a well stocked kitchen full of staples, & all the small appliances you would ever need. You can see from the pics how lovely it is inside & out. The Casita is in a quiet, peaceful neighbourhood....a great way to "wind down" at the end of the day. We loved watching different cloud formations pass over the mountains while barbequing our dinners. We chose to do S.Barbara Car Free again this year..The MTD service is exceptional & goes to all the beaches, tourist sites, Monticito, Carpenteria & of course the malls. Plus it's just two blocks to the the bus stop. We are already missing everything & are finalizing plans to come back again for Feb. 2015! Mary & Tom -- You do it right -- Thank you!!

In a centrally located neighborhood, this beautiful casita is approximately 1 mile from downtown Santa Barbara or 2 from the harbor and beach -- an easy distance to enjoy all Santa Barbara has to offer. Close to downtown businesses, shopping, museums, restaurants, night clubs, the Santa Barbara Mission, the Botanical gardens, the County Bowl (for live shows), golf courses, the harbor and Stearns Wharf, whale watching, island and coastal boat tours, bike and electric car rentals. Although the casita is in the City, it has a touch of a rural feeling, with large oak and Eucalyptus groves in view on 2 sides, as well as views of the city, Riviera and mountains on the other 2 sides. It is a perfect spot for a relaxing vacation or business trip!
