About Inga Frick

I take care of The 3 DUX and our guests for my cousin Inga Frick. She grew up in the house with her grandparents and mother. Her grandfather was "Papa Duck" to all of the kids of the extended family. He was much beloved by all the and The DUX are named in honor of him.

Inga Frick purchased this condo in 1963

Why Inga Frick chose Santa Barbara

Inga: 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 for many years.

What makes this condo unique

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

Guestbook comments from the owner

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

Lovely apartment, better than advertised, great value. One block from State St, shops, restaurants, 4 blocks from ocean made the lack of car a non issue. Laura was close by offering any help but we didn't have any problems at all. Inga's tips & 'how to' notes were valuable. Would highly recommend this property. Thank you !

PERFECT LOCATION.

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful apartment which has everything you need. We could walk to the beach and downtown. State Street is only one block away, but the apartment is quiet and tranquil. It is within walking distance of may great shops, restaurants and bars, and the scenic drives to Ojai and the Santa Ynez Valley are spectacular. Our host provided us with great information prior to our visit. Laura welcomed us and went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed. She was valuable as a source of information and a very kind, gracious manager with a fun sense of humor. We would definatley stay here again.

Great place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

This is the second time that I have stayed at the Papa Dux. I have stayed in the larger space downstairs, and in the upstairs. The view from the balcony from upstairs is my favorite. Great location, house is cute and what I appreciate most, the owners have thought of everything. They even have extra shampoo if you forget your own. The beds are more comfortable downstairs than upstairs. After a week, I needed to see the chiropractor. Hopefully they will update that soon as I want to return. Highly recommended staying at the Papa Dux!

Owner's Response: We're on it. New bed! No concern goes unattended to here! (this is the first I had heard of the bed being less than excellent. a fabulous bed is imperative!

Papa Dux Was Very Comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay at Papa Dux in Santa Barbara. The property was clean and well maintained, and we particularly enjoyed sipping wine on the deck. We walked a lot and enjoyed the art galleries and the excellent restaurants, especially the Upham Hotel. We would recommend the property to others.

Super place during the 2015 SB Film Festival!

  • 5 of 5

What a relief to find this place out of the immediate madness of the SB Film Festival, yet so close to State Street. Great Place! Exceeded all expectations. Thanks so much, Inga, Laura, and the wonderful crew to make this a special trip for me and my colleague. Sharon Edgar Greenhill

Mom And Dad Go Wild

  • 5 of 5

This was my husband and my first little weekend trip away from our little 2 year old son. So we definitely had a lot of expectations for our vacation. We stayed in the largest unit on the property and it was so awesome! Everything about our experience was perfect. From booking to checking in and having pretty much anything you could need in the apartment, we were very impressed. The location was also great! Once we were parked we pretty much walked everywhere we wanted to go for the rest of our time there. We can't wait to visit again:)

Owner's Response: Dear Raymond and Leela, We're thrilled you loved your stay and survived the separation from your 2 year old. That is definitely tough the first time but you did it! We look forward to your next visit and maybe meeting the little one. Best! Laura and Inga
