CLASSIC BEACH HOUSE, GREAT BACK YARD. WALK EVERYWHERE!

Santa Barbara House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Convertible bed(s), Sleeps 7 to 11

Seashore Cottage is a beautifully maintained beach house in one of the best locations in Santa Barbara. The property is circa 1940 in an art nouveau style and has been carefully restored to its original charm while offering the comforts of first class accommodations. It is half a block to Santa Barbara's East Beach, and a short walk to the world renowned Santa Barbara Zoo. It is about a mile walk to both State Street (Stearns Wharf) and Montecito. Very close to a scheduled stop on Santa Barbara's Electric Bus Route that takes you to the wharf and downtown (25 cents, includes one transfer!).

Seashore Cottage is a single family home which includes three bedrooms, two with queen beds and one with a bunk bed (double below/single above), and two sleeper sofas which convert to queen beds. The house is equipped with new appliances, a private washer and dryer, fine quality linens and bedding, and attractive furnishings. The cottage is filled with light, decorated in a beach motif and welcomes you to relax, kick your shoes off and make yourself at home.

The property offers a lushly landscaped and wonderfully private,fully fenced rear yard, which is very rare for this location. The yard includes a vine draped pergola under which there is a fountain and furniture for lounging and dining, a private and secluded Jacuzzi large enough for 6 people, a ping-pong table and BBQ. Whether traveling solo, with friends, extended family or small children, Seashore Cottage really makes your vacation stress free!

GREAT PROXIMITY TO BEACH - PERFECT FOR FAMILIES

  • 5 of 5
We loved the beach house and did not use our car during the entire time we were here! 2 minute walk to the beach, walk to the zoo, shopping, coffee, etc. The house had everything we needed and was in an ideal location.

HUGE HOUSE! AMAZING BACKYARD!

  • 5 of 5
I rented this house b/c I was in town for a wedding and all hotel accommodations in the SB area were much more pricey. We fit 9 adults in the house and we were pretty comfortable for the three nights we stayed. The house was even larger than I had pictured. There are two large living rooms and a huge outdoor patio that we were able to relax in at night. The house is about a 5 min walk to the beach and about a mile walk to the SB pier/ State Street. The owner, Betsy, was extremely helpful. Both times I called her she answered her phone and agreed to both move up the check-in time and move back the check out time a couple hours to accommodate different plane times guests had.

Great stay at this beach house. It was located so conveniently next to the ocean...perfect location. Everything was kept in pristine condition - very very clean. Large, spacious backyard where you can kick back and relax.

GREAT HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
This was a great house for us. Super close to everything! We loved that we could just walk to the beach. We walked out and had dinner on the pier - highly recommend that. My daughter is a softball player and she loved that the batting cages were right around the corner...added bonus. We loved having the hot tub. Only thing that I would recommend to make it a little better is to maybe add a DVD player and some movies. Great house for summer vacation.

Owner's Response: You asked and I listened. I have replaced the DVD player that "went missing" during the Dunnigan's stay at Seashore Cottage. Thank you Jennifer!
