We live in Washington state for most of the year and have always loved to come to Santa Barbara in the winter. Every year when we came to SB we scout for a permanent winter retreat of our own. Being property managers in WA and deeply involved in real estate and owning other vacation properties makes us pretty select in what we wanted in SB. After many years this unit was located and we knew immediately it was for us. A single level, quiet unit with a private garden patio is rare indeed for SB. We did a total extensive remodel including all new appliances, furniture and supplies to make this a perfect oasis for us as we are sure it will be for you.
Ken Schims purchased this condo in 2008
Besides being in the best part of Santa Barbara and being so close to everything, we enjoy the well kept grounds, homogenous architecture, and it's so quiet and peaceful. It's really like having your own house since the only connection to a neighbor is at the garage wall...you don't hear any one. Our special place is the private patio. We eat our meals out there, weather permitting...which is the majority of the time. This oasis is truly a get-a-way for us.

We leave in one week and have spent much of these past few weeks trying to find the right place for next winter. Honestly, your place came out on top of our list. So do let us know if you decide to go elsewhere one winter and would appreciate having us as your tenants. We would enjoy it very much.
Truly, your link on VRBO is excellent in all ways. You have wonderful photos, accurate descriptions of your area and proximity to town as well as a very concise and compelling description of your remodeled home. Perhaps you could add that it was remodeled entirely in X year with all the latest appliances. Many people know that property as one of the older communities, so your upgrades are certainly worth noting. Also, the fact that you include utilities and bi-weekly cleaning are a real bonus.
We have looked at a LOT of places so I mean it when I say that you and Denise have created quite the perfect vacation rental. You are wise to have tenants who are interested in longer term rentals. The short term rentals feel abused, and I think they are by people who move in and out over a weekend, often coming to SB to party.
We will definitely recommend your place to friends who come in the summer, although most of our friends also stick around MT during those months.
Just wanted to leave a comment that this property is absolutely wonderful. Tranquil setting and in a nice, quiet neighborhood. The decor an amenities are top notch! This place is completely stocked and has every and any item you could possibly need for your stay. I would definitely recommend this to friends and stay here again. The owners were also very hospitable and helpful. (I wish it were mine) :)
This is a comfortable home in a quiet neighborhood. We are in agreement with the previous reviews, would definitely return and highly recommend this rental home.
My husband and I stayed in the condo for 5 weeks until we moved into our new house. The condo is very peaceful and serene. The location is perfect, just a 5 minute drive to anywhere downtown and very close to the Mission. I even walked downtown one day and it was a beautiful 30 minute walk to all the shops. The condo is beautifully remodeled as seen in the picture and extremely clean. We were very comfortable there. Thank you Ken and Denise!
This was a wonderful vacation spot for us. Close to our grandchildren who came over for a swim, one sunny day. The fireplace was welcome when the weather turned cool in November. The location is perfect for a walk into town and and back to our favorite places. Renaud's in the mornings and Olio e Limone or C'a Dario for lunch or dinner. Caught a movie at the wonderful old Riviera Theatre just up the hill from the Condo. It was quiet, clean, and we really appreciated the nice new kitchen. Thanks, Denise and Ken for such a fine place.
We have had the most relaxing five week stay in “Casa Pacifica”. The home is very well maintained, perfectly equipped and the kitchen is a cook’s delight.
Centrally located; for easy access to the mountain hiking trails above or the beautiful beaches below. Nothing is too far or too close, which makes the neighborhood very quiet and peaceful.
We loved being able to walk to the Santa Barbara Mission and rose gardens, esp. during the I Madonnari (Italian Street Art) festival. The Riviera Theatre is just a short walk around the corner and shows mostly independent films.
Homeowners, Ken & Denise are wonderful people and they truly care about you and ensuring that your stay in their home is enjoyable.
We will recommend this home to our family and friends.
Wake up to the sound of mission bells in a quiet neighborhood within walking distance of downtown, the Rose Garden, and the Mission. This is one of the more affordable rentals in Santa Barbara with all of the comforts of home. Ken & Denise have done a gorgeous remodel of this condo, and our two-month stay here could not have been better.
