BEST LOCATION IN SANTA BARBARA, WESTBEACH 30'S SPANISH STYLE

Santa Barbara Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

This is the second floor of a Spanish style townhouse built in the 30's, in the fabulous West Beach area of downtown Santa Barbara. The area has been designated 'historic' and as such our building has not been 'modified' or 'modernized'.

Considered the most charming area in all of Santa Barbara, 'West Beach' is approximately 4 blocks square, filled with wonderful old two story Spanish style homes originally built in the 30's around the old Potter Hotel. Many of the original homes have been converted to small inns. There are palm trees lining the side walked streets and from our place there is a peak of the ocean and the tips of boat masts in the harbor.

It is a very short block + walk to the beach (Cabrillo Blvd) with all of the traditional beach activities (bike rentals, roller blades, sailing, kayaking, etc) available. Also within two blocks is the yacht harbor, Stearns Wharf, Santa Barbara City College (with the Garvin Theater), as well as Pershing Park (public tennis courts and softball fields), 'the plunge' (our olympic size public swimming pool), and the Carriage Museum (a true treasure). The Santa Barbara Amtrac station is close by, so if you desire, you can visit without a car!

The area is situated between State and Castillo Streets.. downtown is a 5 minute walk (theaters, restaurants, shopping, etc). Although there are several small hotels and bed and breakfast spots in West Beach, rarely do you find a vacation rental with 2 bedrooms AND the very coveted '2 bathrooms'.. This makes it a perfect getaway for a family of 4 or 5 or two couples looking for a Santa Barbara city weekend retreat.

This second floor unit has coved ceilings and hardwood floors throughout. There is a charming dining room with large bay window and dining table that seats up to 8. Attached to the dining room is a large living room with a new 52' HD flat screen tv with dvd player and dvd library. The master bedroom has a king size bed, 32' HD flat screen tv and dvd player. It incorporates a cozy sitting area with comfy chairs and table where you can read, write, or relax.

The second bedroom has 2 queen beds. Both bedrooms come with IRONED high thread count cotton sheets, down pillows and comforters.

In addition, the master bedroom has bookshelves filled with GREAT books. The first bathroom has a bathtub/shower combination. The second bathroom has a shower and full laundry facilities. Bathrooms have huge fluffy towels and bathrobes. There is a fully equipped kitchen with a deck attached. A gas barbecue and outdoor dining area look out over the city with the mountains beyond.

Off street parking is provided for one car (this is a huge plus in the area) and an additional street parking permit is provided if needed. Please be aware.. this is a second floor unit and it still utilizes the original 1930's staircase.. steep and narrow stairs (they are, fortunately, well lit and there is a handrail)...

We require a one month stay. An exit cleaning fee will be added. For a month stay or longer, weekly cleaning (freshly laundered towels and crisp ironed sheets provided weekly) is included and no tax is added.

Please consult our calendar for availability.

About Dani Dall'Armi

Dani Dall'Armi purchased this townhome in 1985

Why Dani Dall'Armi chose Santa Barbara

Homes in this area are few and far between. We bought it almost 30 years ago before it went on the market. We have loved 'staycationing' here.. Bill sails out of the SB harbor which is steps away. We plan to retire here some day..

What makes this townhome unique

The area has been designated as historic and as such, the homes have retained their charming architectural details. It is a three block treasure of a neighborhood. Arriving here, feels like stepping into the past.. palm lined streets (all utilities are underground) with soft ocean breezes gently rustling the palms in the late afternoons.

Fabulous Santa Barbara Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5
Just as described and more! A quick walk to the beach and a 15-minute walk to the downtown area with its abundance of stores and wonderful restaurants. Unless you're planning to explore outside the immediate Santa Barbara area, there is no need for a car.

The home is spotless and extremely well-appointed. We especially enjoyed the breakfast items such as fruit, bagels, juice and more. The bed linens were extremely inviting and I can't say enough about the convenience of two bathrooms and laundry facilities in the apartment. The extra touches like Molton Brown toiletries and fresh roses (from the owner's rose farm) were very much appreciated.

The owner was very pleasant and easy to contact. We truly felt like we were visiting family. I would highly recommend this property!

This is where you want to stay in SB

When we arrived in the evening, we were not only excited but overwhelmed by our vacation place! Everything was perfectly clean and installed for our one week stay, there was food, drinks, and coffee in the fridge for the first day, so we didn't have to worry about finding a grocery store before breakfast (however, as we found out later Santa Cruz grocery market is within walking distance) and there were fresh roses in each room, including both bathrooms when we arrived.

The VRBO listing description explains the unit's location very well. It is within a three minutes walk from the beach, the neighborhood is safe and nice. The pictures in the listing don't show the charming details of the unit. And, of course, the deck isn't described enough. There is a great terrace with direct access to the kitchen where we took all our meals when eating home. Unfortunately the table on the deck is crooked and may have to be replaced sometime. But we enjoyed the deck a lot and used it as our outside living area.

Laundy facilities are excellent, both washing machine and dryer are new. The dishwasher, however, is not installed and both water and electricity must be plugged before each use. We never understood how this worked and did our dishes by hand which was annoying at times. I suggest that the installing instruction is being rewritten in a more understandable way or, even better, that someone comes over to the place and instructs guests personally.

Altogether, we spent a great week in a wonderful place and strongly recommend this unit to couples and families. The owner is very nice and helpful. When planning a stay in Santa Barbara, you should not miss to check availability of this charming home away from home.

Delightful stay in Santa Barbara

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at this townhouse. It is so nice to be able to walk everywhere from your front door--to the beach, the harbor, the Stearns Wharf, State Street, the tennis courts and the bike rental. We did all of that, and more. We appreciated the home-like townhouse on a very cute street. The layout was so good for us...two bedrooms, two baths, living room, kitchen and an outdoor patio. All of that was great but in addition, it was so thoughtfully appointed for us, as if we were guest coming to their home. She had fresh flowers in every room, the kitchen was well stocked with everything, including lots of food and snacks that carried us a long time. Even the bathrooms were well stocked. I inquired about whether she had beach chairs for us, and she went out and purchased some for us, and an umbrella.
It was just a great rental experience and I would recommend this property to anyone.
