About Inga Frick

I grew up in this house and have been a professional artist all of my life. Turning it into vacation rentals was a labor of love. It is a family run business: Gramma Shirley moved out of her home in order to convert the house to vacation rentals. Cousin Laura is the Property Manager and Concierge. Nephew Jon sometimes handles reservations (I do too) We all enjoy and appreciate our very special guests.

PS -- we don't really speak 19 languages but we can google translate like crazy.

Inga Frick (owner)

Inga Frick purchased this condo in 1963

Why Inga Frick chose Santa Barbara

Our family were renters in the house for 40 years before we were able to buy it in 1993. My grandfather ran a washing machine repair business in the house. Our grandfather was 'Papa Duck' to all the children in the family. Thus The 3 DUX!

What makes this condo unique

A beautiful home in a convenient location run by good people.

Guestbook comments from the manager

thank you! what a beautiful home and so well stocked! i've stayed in bigger places with far fewer thoughtful touches. this was absolutely perfect. i wish i could have had the time to enjoy bike rides and more daylight but i couldn't have had a nicer place for evenings of decompressing and studying i'd love to give your info to a friend who will come twice next year for school if you're comfortable with that. thanks for the receipt, i received it and am thrilled with the price. thanks again, your home is so inviting and just what i needed. warmly, sarah

Superbly functional and comfortable! Nice stroll to Historic State Street; quick bike ride to the local beaches. Our 11 year old son loved the robin's egg blue beach cruiser! This apartment was just perfect in terms of necessities and ambiance. We loved listening to Pandora while dining and enjoying the breezes off the deck, as the twinkling lights of the hills added to the peace and serenity. Also, thanks to Laura, who was flawless in her interaction with us...very professional and accommodating! I would highly recommend staying in one of the apartments in this gorgeous Arts and Crafts original Santa Barbara home!

Great vacation location stay.

  • 4 of 5
Wanting to take a vacation to Santa Barbara we did research many places to stay as we wanted to stay out of the motel/hotel venue. We did locate a setting that included three apartment type lodging choices. We did choose Papa Dux as we liked the idea of an upper balcony setting. We had made contact with the owner prior to reserving our stay and Inga gave us all types of valuable information on what was there along with the on-line pictures that we had seen. On arrival we were very pleasantly surprised as the lodging did live up to what we expected and more. The area is walking distance from State street (1 blk) with it's large business district for shopping and dining out. It is also located within a very short walking distance of the wharf and beaches. The accomodations were great and the lodging was very well supplied and had everything available for a stay to include washer/dryer and a kitchen area. It was totally great to be able to sit and enjoy the pleasant surroundings as well as be able to access State street and the beaches by walking-we opted not to use bicycles which are also available at the venue. In summation the accomodations were well thought out and made for a very pleasant stay and the information and contact with Inga and Laura was a nice touch. We thoroughly did enjoy the stay and we will utilize the lodging again while traveling to the Santa Barbara area. Al & Cheryl Lampi-Vista, CA

Beautiful place!

  • 4 of 5
This is a wonderful property managed by a team of considerate professionals. The location is fantastic. Downtown Santa Barbara and the beach are an easy walk away. The apartment was exceptionally clean and stocked with all necessary amenities. The week we were there, an annual week-long fiesta was in progress. The celebrations were fun: dancing, street vendors, food. Great vacation spot!

Gem.

Papa Dux is a wonderful condo. Close to State street, beaches and Funk town, but still quiet and relaxing. The property is beautiful. Plenty of room for our family of 3. We spent most of our time outside on the deck grilling fresh seafood and enjoying the view and the local wines. Can't wait to return to SB and will absolutely stay here again.

Cozy apartment in a great area!

  • 5 of 5
This is a terrific little apartment in the heart of downtown Santa Barbara. We came for a girls weekend, and couldn't have gotten luckier with a place to stay. Jon and Laura and easy to work with, and will also send you lots of recommendations for places to eat and things to do around town. You're one block from State Street and about 5 minutes from the ocean pier. Perfect spot for a weekend getaway.

Cozy place and perfect location!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Papa Dux was everything we hoped it would be. Cozy condo stocked with everything we needed and in a perfect location. Just a short walk to the beach, shopping, restaurants and Santa Barbara's Urban Wine Trail. This was our first stay at a vacation rental home property and our first visit to Santa Barbara. We would definitely stay at Papa Dux again.
