Wendy and Chuck are longtime residents of Santa Barbara and Big Bear California. We are happy to share our love of these areas with guests. In fact, that is what makes being vacation rental owners of six properties and managing them ourselves so rewarding. We have made many happy memories in all of our properties (we have lived in each one of them) and can share all the special features and local ideas with guests.

We love gardening, biking, walks on the beach and spending time with our own family which includes three grown children and five grandchildren and a great granddaughter on the way

Wendy Rockwood purchased this cottage in 1986

Craftsman Cottage is a tucked away jewel in downtown Santa Barbara. Down a private driveway, this is an off-street location, not attached to any other property. Enclosed by hedges and greenery there is a tremendously private feel and quiet setting. A sunny open porch make relaxing the great Santa Barbara weather a pleasure

Featuring outdoor and indoor dining areas there is plenty of room to stretch out. Families with young children love that the yard can be gated giving toddlers a great outdoor play area. Oak Park is a close walk with more for kids.

With having a direct relationship with the owner/manager you will deal with one person from your booking to any necessary details during your stay.

Couples love the romantic setting of the cottage decor and the fireplace right under the great large screen TV in the living room.'

A true retreat from which to begin your Santa Barbara adventures.

Heart of Santa Barbara

"Heart of Santa Barbara"

This is our second time renting this charming home.
Wendy is so helpful and quickly responded to
our phone call. The house is truly in the heart of
Santa Barbara... Minutes from the beach, state street and
restaurants. We felt at home in this Craftmans
Style house with its old wood floors, and vintage windows
and doors. We will be back and highly recommend.

Lovely, Quiet Home

  • Submitted: Dec 5, 2013
  • Stayed: Dec 2013
Lovely two bedroom house in a quiet part of Santa Barbara, it had all the facilities I needed and especially liked the washer and dryer. Wendy was great to deal with and I would like to thank her for quick responses via email and sorting us out last minute after being let down by another owner. Would definitely recommend this property with its two double bedrooms and well stocked kitchen. Will hopefully be stopping again. Thanks

Highly Recomended Retreat

  • Submitted: Oct 3, 2013
  • Stayed: Sep 2013
We spent a week at This Santa Barbara Craftsman Cottage in September. Everything was welcoming from the moment we arrived. The cottage is very private, quiet and wonderful to return to after a day on the beach or a day wine tasting. The linens were luxurious and the beds comfortable. I would recommend this retreat for anyone visiting Santa Barbara.

Lovely Cottage

"Lovely Cottage"
We had a great time in Santa Barbara. The cottage was lovely. My in-laws and wife enjoyed the accommodations. Thank you for your professionalism and courtesy. The cottage was significantly superior experience and homely feel as compared to a hotel room. Truly a great stay. Hope to return for a longer stay in the near future.

Comfortable Beds

  • Submitted: Aug 6, 2012
  • Stayed: Aug 2012
We loved your place! It was quiet, clean, the beds were comfortable, and it was a perfect size for the four of us. It was an easy drive to State Street, the beach, and other places of interest. We would be happy to stay there again. The place is great. Thanks again!

× This manager has not provided a specific location. If you would like more information, please contact the manager.

Santa Barbara is a beach community with beaches, pier, sailing, swimming, whale watching and a vibrant cultural life of theatre, events, museums and a beautiful small zoo. It is unique because there are also close mountains that offer hiking, wine tasting and a nearby lake for fishing. Known as the 'American Riviera', it is known for its Spanish architecture, and the beauty of the landscape. The semi tropical climate has led many to say it is similar in appearance to Hawaii with so many varieties of trees and vegetation that are spectacular. Fine dining options abound as well as a vibrant downtown with great shopping. There are even islands close by that are protected sanctuaries that make a great day trip. Santa Barbara is the perfect vacation destination!
