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.

GREAT GETAWAY IN SANTA BARBARA

  • 5 of 5
We had a fabulous one week vacation at this luxurious unit in Santa Barbara. Everything was as pictured and described on VRBO. The location is close ( 1 block) to State Street where there are many restaurants and access to the wharf and beach. You can walk or take the shuttle which is 50 or 25 cents, based on age. We chose this unit because it was pet friendly. We had the downstairs unit with a lovely courtyard and fountain. We were very happy with the management and Laura was extremely helpful and kind, providing us with information that made our stay much better. It was a quiet, cool place to relax while the outside was a beehive of activity. Would highly recommend it.

LOVELY PLACE TO STAY!

  • 4 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house was quaint and in a great location. It was a nice alternative to staying in a hotel. We really felt at home there. I am looking forward to staying in the future.

SANTA BARBARA STAY

  • 5 of 5
We are a family of four (2 adults, 2 kids aged 4 and 6) from Germany. Part of our California trip led us to Santa Barbara where we were lucky enough to find this place. It was as described in the home away ad, located very practically near the busy state street full of shops and restaurants. No car or cab needed after dinner- an easy walk.
The place was clean, the kitchen well-equipped. We enjoyed breakfast there every day and cooked a couple of times. There's even a crockpot, a blender and a barbacue. Supermarket just on the next block. Also there are some great restaurants around, our favourite was the "something's fishy" japanese hibachi grill on state street where they barbecue for you at your table.
We had a wonderful sty with trips to the beach, to town, to the santa barbara zoo and day trips to santa ynez valley, solvang etc.
We would recommend this place to anyone and hope to come back someday

WONDERFUL STAY

  • 5 of 5
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.

GREAT LOCATION, LUXURIOUS! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

  • 5 of 5
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.
