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!

  • 5 of 5
The occasion was our daughters Wedding. Our extended family and ourselves (8) enjoyed the occommocations very much especially the roominess, the ourside area for our pets and the orange trees, we enjoyed fresh fruit juice every morning. We also received other family members for an open-house after the wedding. This was a great find in accommodations for our family.

Couldn't have asked for a better place - location was perfect, house was great - plenty of room and well kept. Great parking and the backyard was a hit with the kids. We loved every minute of it and will be back!

Need a 6th star for far exceeding expextations

  • 5 of 5
I wish we could have stayed longer--what a great place. We rented this cottage for our daughter's graduation. Having had a hard time finding hotels every year for move-out, I thought ahead for graduation (UCSB) and arranged this 9 months ahead. I wanted to be able to bring family to graduation without it requiring them to reserve a hotel ahead of time. This was so far superior to hotel rooms, I can't even express it. The space was great. For what we would typically pay for 2 hotel rooms, we had a 3 bedroom house. The inside was phenomenal (2 living rooms) and having a grill outside was perfect. After graduation, we went and bought fresh local fish--at the pier--and grilled it at the house (I almost typed 'home'). We didn't use the spa, or the outside space, but it looked great. Being a block from the beach, we took advantage of the opportunity to walk on the beach.

So, long-winded review...bottom-line, awesome. Large enough for people to be able to seek quiet or conversation; so perfect for family and friends to stay together. We had both with us, and would go again in a heartbeat. A few extra nice touches: lots of essentials in the pantry--way beyond salt and pepper. Washer and dryer were a bonus. When we read reviews, a criticism was that there were DVD players, but no DVDs. While we didn't watch any tv or movies, I noticed that there was a decent set of DVDs. Remembering the criticism, I was impressed that the owners had responded by filling the gap. I honestly have absolutely no recommendations for improvement. Loved it.

Great proximity to beach - perfect for families

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.
