We are Eric Kelley and Peggy Lindt. Eric is the owner of The Book Den, California's Oldest Used Book Store. Peggy is an artist and designer. Her art work has been used in postcards, calendars, books, and several Old Spanish Days Fiesta posters. Peggy has lived in Santa Barbara since childhood. Eric came to town when he bought The Book Den in 1979.
We bought this house for ourselves to live in. When Peggy's mother needed more assistance, we moved across town to help, and thought we'd rather rent the bungalow furnished as a vacation rental than have to store all of our furniture. We've always loved the eastside location. It's in Santa Barbara's Bungalow Haven neighborhood, so the whole area is full of nicely maintained bungalows. It's easy walking distance to downtown; Eric and our dog Django often walked to work together. If you stay at Painted Pony Bungalow, you'll get a real feel for old-fashioned Santa Barbara living.
Staying in Painted Pony Bungalow gives all the old-fashioned comfort of a craftsman bungalow built in 1917, with lovely woodwork and built-in cabinetry, and vintage kitchen and oak floors. But you don't have to leave 21st century conveniences behind. There's a hot tub, HD television and wi-fi Internet. It's the best combination of the old and the new.
Dog parks, dog-friendly beaches. Owners run The Book Den, California's oldest used book store.
