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

Nephew Jon handles email correspondence (I do, too) Cousin Laura is the Concierge. Gramma Shirley, now 92, works in the yard. You may see any one of us working in the garden or on the house. We all enjoy and appreciate our very special guests. Inga Frick (owner)

Jon purchased this condo in 1963

Our family were renters in the house for 40 years before we were able to buy it in 1993. My grandmother and grandfather ran a washing machine repair business in the house. Both Jon and I grew up (at least partly) in the house. Our grandfather was 'Papa Duck' to all the children in the family. Thus The 3 DUX!

A well loved, comfortable home in a convenient location run by good people.

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.

GREAT LOCATION AND CLEAN.

  • 5 of 5
This property was located in the heart of Downtown but away from the noise. We hit the local local farmers market on the bikes provided. The pillows were soft which is hard to find in most rentals; they usually have the brick feeling ones. My wife loves the layout. The view is nice at night and we were able to enjoy a few glasses of wine on the deck. The owners were always available to answer all questions and make recommendations. I would recommend this place for anyone looking for a great location.

PAPA DUX WAS WARM, COMFORTABLE AND INVITING.

  • 5 of 5
The Papa Dux rental was a great experience. It was accurately described on-line and have everything you could possibly need. The bedroom was very cozy and comfortable. The bathroom was clean, modern and fully stocked. The living room area was bright and sunny and the view was great. It is situated near Hwy 101 which we did not notice at all. It was very quiet. We appreciated having netflix and use of the bicycles. Laura was especially accommodating. Didn't really get a chance to use the kitchen. Too much to do and see steps from this location. I highly recommend this rental.

GREAT STAY IN PAPA DUX!

  • 5 of 5
We had such a wonderful stay in Santa Barbara in the Papa Dux. It was our first time visiting Santa Barbara and can't wait to come back! We enjoyed the firepit on the deck and the condo was furnished so nicely. It was very convenient to everything. We went for walks on the beach and down State Street shopping. We rode the bikes all over town and drove up into the mountains. Laura was a great help when needed and everything was perfect! If and when we come back to visit, we hope to be able to stay in Papa Dux again!
