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.

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

Inga Frick (owner)

Jon and/or Inga purchased this house in 1993

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 beautiful home in a convenient location run by good people.

I had a wonderful experience staying in this fabulous apartment in the heart of Santa Barbara. It was the perfect space for a restful get away, complete with a beautiful, clean, and efficient internal environment in the center of the city. I highly recommend staying here for anyone wanting the luxury of a hotel stay with the comfort of being in one's own home.

The place has absolutely everything you require! A fully equipped kitchen, comfortable soft sheets for a great night's sleep. A short walk away from State Street and downtown Santa Barbara, where all the shops and cafes are located.

I got some groceries from Lazy Acres and Wholefoods - and as I didn't have a car I used Uber. I also cycled around town - as there were a few bicycles available for us to use.

Laura also offered to pick me up from the station and sent me to the station when I was heading back to LA. Such amazing service, I felt very taken care of - and can't recommend it enough. When I return to Santa Barbara I am sure to book in here again!

Thank you for the amazing experience.
Owner's Response: Dear jia Ni,
Thank you so much for the lovely review. I'm glad you made it home safe and sound. We look forward to your future visit.
Very best to you,
Laura

BEAUTIFUL SANTA BARBARA HOME. SIMPLY PERFECT. A+!

This place is just so wonderful. The location, the design, the amenities, the parking, the space, everything is A+++! My family truly loved it here. This beautiful property is perfectly situated in Downtown Santa Barbara. A short block from Downtown State Street (where everything happens in this city) and few blocks from the beach. This is truly what they call a "Walker's Paradise" and a "dream vacation home". Perfect for a family of 4, maybe even more! The place is spacious and very well decorated with all the amenities you wish for in a vacation home. From the entrance to the property, the beautiful parking, patio, and deck area,... to the warm comfortable feeling of the design of Mama Dux, one could certainly tell that a lot of hard work and thoughts were put in making this home a perfect place for a getaway. The king bed is very comfortable, so are the two round swivel chairs and two single beds. With two large TVs, Netflix, Wifi, DVD player included in the property, you don't even need to get out of the house for entertainment. The kitchen is fully-equipped with a large fridge, full-size stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher, and cooking supplies. There's also a washer and dryer. A BBQ grill with outside seating and a deck with patio chairs. The bikes (for all ages and sizes) are also included in the rental for no additional charge. The service is probably the best you'll ever get and can't be any more grateful to have found this place. Inga (property owner) and Laura (caretaker) are great, proactive, warm people. Although I didn't get the chance to meet them since we were out and about, I felt confident and secure knowing that they'll be there the second I ever need any help. I'm so thankful to have had the chance to stay at this property and certainly looking forward to coming back again. Thank you Inga and Laura for your warm welcome and accommodating all of my family's needs. Until next time! :)

Owner's Response: Nina,
What a lovely, glowing review. Thank you so much. I regret not being able to meet you but apparently you were out enjoying all the wonderful sights in beautiful Santa Barbara when I was around the property. I do hope you will return to visit in the future and stay with us again.
My very best to you and your family,
Laura

Fun in Santa Barbara

This was my first visit to Santa Barbara. The MAMA DUX apartment was exactly as advertised. It has a very convenient location just a block from State Street. Turn left on State and it's just a short walk to the beach, harbor and Stearns Wharf. Turn right on State and walk to all of the shops and restaurants. In addition, there was a very nice cafe with great coffee just a block away on Anacapa Street.
The apartment was spotlessly clean, well equipped and very comfortably furnished. In addition, parking is provided, which is a great convenience. Despite the location and the fact that there are two other units in the house, it was very quiet. The owner and manager both provided great service and made themselves available should any need arise. Happily, I didn't require their services during my visit.
I would recommend the apartment without reservation.
Owner's Response: John, it was a pleasure to have you and you, no way, look 60! smiles, Inga
