You get twice the space here for half the price of the hotels within a couple of blocks of this rental near the beach, so I have no complaints. However, I do have some tips for travelers who are considering this apartment. First, pack the amenities that you would expect from a hotel, because they are not provided. I am referring mainly to shampoo, coffee, and bottled water. (You should bring bottled water to any lodging you get in Santa Barbara, by the way, because the city tap water is very sulfurous and is unpalatable.) You should also bring a plastic bag for garbage, because you are expected to pack out your trash, but trash bags were not provided. Second, be sure to ask for the wifi login information before you arrive if you are going to need it, because there is nothing in the room that tells you. I had to call the owner very early the morning after I checked in. He was very kind to answer the phone at 5:30am on a weekend and help, but I did not like having to make the call, so I wish I had gotten the info in advance. If you know about these issues in advance they will not inconvenience you, and you will be happy with the rental. It is clean, cozy, and in a very convenient location.
